Manufacturer’s Description: If you thought bath time for kids was a bit of a bother then Anovia’s new 3 in 1 shampoo, body wash and bubble bath will make it a breeze!
Anovia Kids has just unveiled the new fruity addition to its popular kids range. The blackcurrant and apple all in one – which comes in the bright colourful character packaging little ones have come to love from the brand – contains a mild and gentle no-tears formula. It is 97 per cent naturally derived and like all of Anovia’s products, is manufactured in the UK.
Not only does the 3 in 1 formula clean skin and hair thoroughly, it has a fresh fragrance bursting with apple and berry scents and creates a fabulously frothy lather, which is great fun for children.
Rating: (4/5 stars)
Review: We have been trying out the Anovia Kids Blackcurrant & Apple 3 in 1 shampoo, bodywash & bubble bath for a few weeks now and have been pretty pleased with the product, on the whole.
This fun-looking product is contained in a bright & colourful star shaped bottle, complete with cartoon facial features. Georgie thinks it looks great!
We have used the product as a bubble bath, and also to wash the girls’ hair and skin. First up, what we think of the product as a bubble bath. It’s not bad, with a good amount of bubbles popping up when you pour it in. They don’t last amazingly long, though.
Using the 3 in 1 as a shampoo, we were impressed with how good Georgie’s hair looked once dry. Again, the body wash gave us good results, and when squeezed onto a sponge it removed grubbiness easily enough. The no tears formula meant that we could wash the girls hair and faces without them feeling a horrible stinging and getting upset.
One good thing about this product is that it smells great. The 3 in 1 side of things would make it a great product to have for travelling; it would be perfect to slip into a wash bag for holidays instead of taking three separate bottles.
The main downside we have found is that it doesn’t agree too well with Georgie’s admittedly very sensitive skin with extended use. A couple of days in a row is fine but we found that her skin was getting a little bit dry with too much use of the product, and we will have to switch back to our previous bubble bath and body washes. I wouldn’t hesitate to get some of this for short periods of time or occasional use though, especially as it is such great value at just £1.29!
Overall we have been pretty happy with the product. Georgie has more sensitive skin than a lot of kids, and it could just be a coincidence that her skin dried out while we were using this in their bath. We give this fabulously good smelling 3 in 1 bath product a 4 star rating.
