Hi ladies, how was your Memorial Day weekend? Mine was kinda traumatic, since my Lina Lina Bobina was hunted down and attacked by a brutal mob of bloodthirsty, toddler-hating mosquitos. Seriously, she’s covered from her curls to her Revlon Seafoam-painted toes. She didn’t let the bites bother her too much, but I freaked out. Her skin is way sensitive and super-prone to redness and irritation, so this was no good. Along with the usual benadryl/neosporin situation, her pediatrician told me I needed to find a new all-natural bath gel for her — the one I was using was apparently doing her skin and bites no favors. Gasp! HOW COULD I FAIL MY DAUGHTER ON ANYTHING BEAUTY-RELATED?
Enter Cara B Naturally’s totally organic, chemical-free, 100% all-natural body and hair products for kids (adults can use them too, obvi, but the extra-gentle situation means its ideal for little ones)! I started using the Shampoo and Body Wash ($11) on Bobina, and not only has the aloe and chamomile-blended formula really helped calm down her inflamed skin, it just feels so much lighter and cleaner than many other “natural” products we’ve tried. Most are so loaded with heavy fragrance (natural scents, yes, but still overpowering) that they break her out. Cara B Naturally, you have fans in Park Slope. Especially since the line thought to include one of the awesomest curl refreshers, ever — the coconut and almond oil-infused Moisturizing Hair Mist ($10), which I spritz on Bobina’s curls in the morning to adorable results. My daycare diva. Win!
