You may have read about Ottilie & Lulu natural skin and hair care line in Seventeen Magazine’s Style Blog or that Ottilie & Lulu Everyday Facial Moisturizer & Sunscreen SPF 20 was “Voted the BEST!” by Discovery Girls Magazines. Well if you have heard of Ottilie & Lulu, you know it’s a natural skin and hair care line created especially for tween girls (ages 7-14) to get them excited about grooming.
Deborah Hernan mother of a tween girl noticed that there wasn’t anything on the market especially for her daughter’s young, delicate skin. She applied her background experience as an executive with Revlon and…….created Ottilie & Lulu natural skin and hair care products.
“The Ottilie and Lulu line includes face wipes, everyday moisturizer with spf 20, shampoo and body wash, detangler and conditioner (all in one), and a body glow lotion. The products are created with gentle formulations without, Parabens, Phthalates, Sodium Lauryl Sulfates, Mineral Oil or Petroleum by-products. Instead, Ottilie and Lulu offers natural ingredients that are less harsh and more nurturing to younger skin and hair including:
- Anti-oxidants for protection against environmental stress
Vitamins, Wheat Protein and Jojoba Protein to keep young skin nourished and healthy
Chamomile Flower, Lemon Extract and other Botanicals that soothe
With 80% of the damage done to skin before the age of 17, it is so important for mothers to help their girls formulate good grooming and skin-care habits. Many products on the market have harsh chemicals that can lead to allergic reactions or may strip skin of its natural youthful glow the very look we want to help our kids preserve for a long as possible.”
In my attempt to do 100 things at one time, I swear I read the conditioner was a leave in (that is my story and I am sticking to it). So I washed the girls hair one night and put the conditioner in both their hair after they got out of the tub. They didn’t like the smell (wild mint) for about 2 seconds then it was great (I loved the smell). I dried their hair and ooh and aah over how soft it felt. The next morning I decided to try it instead of my normal product I use on my hair once I am out of the shower. I must say it was okay, but it was after I dried and styled my hair did I realize it was just a tiny bit heavy (I have very thick hair). I picked up the bottle to exam it again….conditioner is to be rinsed out. DUH! Like I said, no one idea why I thought it was a leave-in conditioner.
Testing Ottilie & Lulu, Take 2….This is such an awesome product. The smell is absolutely refresening when put in wet hair and rinsed(!). The steam from the shower mixed with the wild mint awakens (but in a calm way) everything. My girls loved it too (not as strong when used in the shower for some reason, must be the steam). When rinsed(!) it leaves your hair so silky and smooth with no heavy residue. I put nothing else in the girls hair and was able to brush their hair without a fight and tears. After blow drying, their hair had a beautiful shine and was so soft and manageable. I used it as well, and LOVED it. I flat iron my hair and didn’t need any other products in my hair. I also loved the very slight hint of wild mint when I kissed the girls!
I love facial wipes. I use them all the time (great for traveling too). My girls thought it was wonderful to have wipes made just for them. They don’t mind “washing their face” anymore. It was always such a struggle, not to mention the mess that they left behind. Of course, I had to use them too – LOVED them. I didn’t feel they were too strong or too mild to clean my face. The rosewater sent – LOVELY! I even used them to wipe away eye make-up. They are very portable and the girls used them after softball games when they have sweat dripping down their faces.
My question to Deborah…..when are you going to make a line of products for tween boys? My son would love his own products!
