Age Range: aimed at children who want to start washing themselves
Manufacturer’s Description: Here at Professor P. Scrubbington’s Emporium of Clean we specialise in creating personal care products specifically tailored to meet the needs of young people who want to take charge of their own ablutions (otherwise known as washing your bits). Careful study of the habits and hurdles involved has led me to devise the ultimate in soapy solutions: foams that stay on your hands and are easy to apply; dispensers that you can squeeze with one hand; natural ingredients that are effective and kind to your skin and the planet; fresh fragrances in place of the usual sugary scents.
Review: We received a mysterious cardboard suitcase in the post, labelled with stickers from far flung places. Nestled inside the suitcase we found a range of cleaning products created by “Professor P Scrubbington” and aimed at young children who want to start taking charge of their own bath time.
I was immediately impressed by the look of these products; they are fun without being too childish or babyish, which I would guess would be perfect for pre-teen aged kids who are leaving their babyish days behind – but they still appeal to our two young girls. The branding is consistent throughout all the products, with blocks of different colours letting you identify each product at a glance – useful when in the shower or bath, especially for little ones who might not be reading brilliantly yet, but can remember which is which from the colour.
There are five products in the range; hair & body wash, shampoo, conditioner, hand & face wash, and a roll-on deodorant. At the moment the girls are a bit young for the roll-on, but it smells nice and fresh and would be great for kids going through puberty – and small enough to slip in a school bag. We have been able to test everything else, and are defintiely impressed.
Our favourite feature of these products is that they are “magically foaming” and one little squirt gets you a huge quickly expanding blob of foam, perfect for little hands. Georgie and Lydia both absolutely love it – we have put the hand wash in the bathroom and they can both get it out themselves and it leaves their hands and faces smelling fresh and clean.
James gave them a bath and used the three bath products, and was pleased with all three. Again, the kids liked the way it foamed up and the bottles were easy to use, having been designed to be squeezable one handed. The girls came down from their bath smelling lovely and with all the grub of the last day or so completely washed off.
Once dry, the girls hair smelled really fresh and looked & felt very healthy and shiny. Georgie’s hair was easier to brush than it often is, and felt more conditioned than when using their normal 2 in 1 shampoo.
Overall we have been pleased with these bath products and I would definitely consider buying them again, especially as Georgie is becoming more independent and loves to do this sort of thing herself. At £5 per product they are a touch expensive, but you can buy three of any of the products for £13 with free p&p on the website, and also at the moment the whole range is available for £20 with free p&p. 4 stars.
