Introducing Dubble Trubble Plus a Giveaway

Bath time is a pretty fun time for the little ones at our house.  They love to splash about and get lost in their own little imaginative world.  The girls love to bathe on their own so they can stretch out and pretend to be mermaids where as Mr Squishy loves to fill up jugs and toys with water and pour it back into the bath.  Of course bath time is not just about playing it is also about washing the little ones so they smell great after running around at school or at home and building up a sweat.  No one likes a smelly child now do they.  My little ones love fragrant fruity products to use when washing their body and hair and so were extremely excited to be sent some Dubble Trubble products.  These award winning organic (over 70% organic ingredients) shampoos and body washes come in a range of aromas including Cherry Bomb, Cool Cucumber, Strawberry, Watermelon and Bananaberry.  You will also find a Cool Cucumber Detangling Conditioner Spray.


The products do NOT contain SLES, SLS or parabens.  SLES and SLS can cause skin irritations and SLES are often contaminated by a carcinogen (1,4 Dioxane – cancer causing) which is a by-product of manufacturing.  The products are NOT tested on animals which means we can buy the products in good conscience.

Dubble Trubble products have been created by celebrity hair colourist and Prince’s Trust Ambassador, Daniel Galvin Jr.  His collection of five pH balanced Hair & Body washes and Detangling Mist all contain organic botanical extracts to ensure that our children’s hair is in safe hands.

These are available in Tesco and most Asda stores, as well as online in Ocado and Daniel Galvin Jr’s stores.

As we all know children love to unbox items no matter what they are it’s the excitement of seeing what’s inside so I thought it might be fun to do an unboxing video.

So now you’ve seen the unboxing what did the children think???

It was hardly surprising that the children had whipped off their clothes in minutes and were excited about getting into the bath after filming.


The children loved the range of aromas and wanted to try them all so we have been having extra baths to get through each.  Their favourites were the cherry bomb and strawberry although they did like them all.  The combination of the shampoo and the detangling spray made the children’s hair easier and faster to brush through which was good as we can spend ages sometimes.  I liked the range and aromas and would like to see a few more of the aromas of the shampoo and body washes available in the detangling spray range.


These are lovely products and ones we are sure to use again.  If you would like an opportunity to give them a go for yourself why not enter our competition to win some Dubble Trubble goodies.  One lucky reader will be sent the selection of hair and body washes and also the detangling spray.

Natural Antiaging Body Oils that smell Amazing!!!

When I offered to try out some oils from acuRegen little did I expect to have just stumbled across some of the most amazing oils ever!!!  I know the majority of my posts are very positive about products but a reminder to all, if I don’t like a product then I will not write about it (well it is my blog after all).  I didn’t have any expectations before the product arrived as I find it is best not to but the words “OMG this is fabulous” did spring to mind for each of the oils that I tried.

 acuRegen have a number of products under available on their site including the gorgeous Puriskin creams which I introduced you all too a little while back.

DSC04233Their products are ethically produced, suitable for vegetarians, not tested on animals, paraben-free, phthalate-free and petroleum-free.

 The oils that I tried can be used in the bath (add a few drops to bath water), or on the body (apply a few drops to moist skin to seal in moisture).

  Each of the oils provides different benefits to the skin but with each the second you pour that little bit out of the bottle the natural scent literally bursts in the room.

 There are 3 oils available:

DSC02576Lavender – as we all know is great for relaxation and an ideal oil to use just in a bath or after a bath or shower before bed.  Its soothing relaxing effect on the skin and the mind can help calm and heal irritated and problem skin and also ease you into sleep gently after a long day.

The aroma once released from the bottle is not at all weak but well scented and it really does smell good.  In my medical studies I looked into the use of essential oils for both internal and external use and have more than adequate experience to detect a great quality oil when I come across one.

This gorgeous oil has a soothing and calming effect on skin, muscles and the mind thanks to its ester content.  It also contains limonene which helps support the skin in its self-healing and improve its appearance.  All aromatherapists and herbalists alike will have their own bottle of this essential oil as it has numerous applications.  It is even useful in treating skin conditions including psoriasis, eczema, wrinkles as well as ease insect bites (plus it can serve as an insect repellant).  The Lavender oil is combined here with Eucalyptus as both have the ability to ease irritation and reduce inflammation.

 Interestingly this contains my favourite Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Globulus.  This is a useful oil to use for skin irritations and inflammation and also works wonders on muscular aches and pains.  Here it is perfectly paired with the Lavender as they can help improve some muscular aches and pains with the first use which I can vouch for having used the duo myself.

This oil also contains Argan oil which is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants and enabling this mix to add moisture, heal, improve elasticity and help to fight against premature aging, lines and wrinkles.

There are other ingredients in the oil and combined provide a healing, anti-inflammatory, skin toning and restoring effect so would be ideal for those with dry, irritated skin although would be useful to most people with its multiple applications.


Rose – this lovely floral oil really does bring with it the scent of Summer which I am very much looking forward to.  Deeply nourishing and calming on the skin this also has a cleansing effect.

 Again containing Argan oil for obvious reasons this is a lovely combination or natural sourced ingredients that combine well to complement each other and give the user great looking skin.

 This also has Rose Geranium which I love to use for skin products as it can be used to help treat numerous skin conditions (including eczema) due to its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and skin healing effects.

 The additional ingredients help support the main functions of those mentioned above so again we have a healing, skin nourishing oil that can help the skin look brighter, clearer and younger.

Jasmine – I had initially thought this would be my favourite aroma but having now tried them all I must admit I love them all equally.  Jasmine flower oil displays toning effects on the skin and is great for treating dehydrated skin.  It is commonly used as a form of treatment for those suffering from eczema and dermatitis although not where there are open wounds.

This lovely oil is combined with another essential oil Ylang Ylang both of which have a relaxing effect on the body and mind as well as smelling amazing!!!!  Ylang Ylang is also thought to have a smoothing effect of the skin which is great news for us with a few wrinkles.

Of course we can’t forget the Argan oil which we all know and love.  Combined these and a few more oils create a beautiful aromatic blend that not only is perfect for dry skin but also has a relaxing effect on the mind.


All of the oils leave the skin feeling soft and smooth and of course smelling amazing.  I simply can’t tell you enough how wonderful these oils are and how a great a quality of product this is.  If asked to find fault with the product I would struggle.  The only suggestion I could think of is to change the top of the bottle from being a simple pour bottle to something more like the picture below as I must admit I was a bit paranoid of knocking the bottle over and spilling the oil everywhere.  Other than that it is quite simply ‘perfect’.

DSC03053 I loved this product so much that I over the moon when I heard that I could do a giveaway for three of the bottles, that’s one of each scent with the total value of £98.97 (£32.99 each).
