Tiny bubbles end the whine

My favorite parenting hack: If you give your kids a bubble bath and encourage them to roll around a lot, they get clean and smell great without loads of scrubbing and whining. Most of the store brands give my daughter a rash, so I’m super picky about what I’ll pour under the faucet.

But now I have a new favorite, and it’s from an old favorite of mine.

Babo Botanicals wowed my socks off with their phenomenal line of hair detanglers for kids. And now they’ve won me over yet again with their new Lavender Meadowsweet 3 in 1 Bubble Bath, Shampoo, and Wash. The ingredients list is impressive, with certified organic plant extracts, no icky chemicals, and no dairy, soy, or nuts. It even makes a lovely and relaxing bubble bath for grown-ups (like me) who occasionally enjoy wearing bubble beards while they read their magazines and relax.

Best of all, though, is the smell. Imagine the love child of a watermelon and a flower meadow, a dreamy perfume that fills the bathroom and lingers in that sweetly kissable fold of a baby’s neck. This is one of the stronger scents I’ve found in bubble bath, but for me, that’s a plus.

And Babo, if you decide to make a detangler that smells like the Lavender Meadowsweet 3 in 1, please put me down for a case. –Delilah
