We (Moo and I) were recently picked by Cussons Mum and Me to be 'twesters' (Twitter testers) for their new Little Explorers range. Little Explorers is their children's (post baby-stage) toiletries with four products on offer; bath 'crackles', hair and body wash, bubbly bath and squidgy soap. Below I have included three mini reviews of the products (sadly our hair and body wash befell an unfortunate accident and I was unable to find it locally to re-purchase).
Funky Fizz Bath Crackles.
A single-use, foil sachet of green and yellow popping bath crystals that fizz in the bath; think popping-candy for your tub! You simply run the water, tip them in and listen for the pop and bang, as well as watch the water 'change colour'.
Moo was not a fan, she has a thing about certain textures and she felt like there was 'dirt' at the bottom of the bathtub. This is purely something about her and I thought they were fun, even if I did drop half the contents down the toilet!
- Quite loud noise which is exciting to children.
- Smell lovely.
- If changed colour of the water, only vaguely to a light aqua green, not as exciting as I had hoped.
Super Shapable Squidgy Soap.
A pressurised can (like hair mousse) that dispenses shapable soap foam.
Moo LOVED this and enjoyed experimenting with the nozzle and had lots of fun rubbing it onto herself and washing...and making a mess.
- A little goes a long way.
- Difficult to control amount dispensed.
Mega Mild Bubbly Bath.
A generously-sized bottle of bubble bath that is really kind to delicate and sensitive skin whilst still giving quite a hefty amount of bubbles, it's ideal for use in toddler baths and smells lovely and clean (I know that sounds like a stupid statement, but some toiletries can smell so perfumed and strong).
Moo enjoys a good bubble bath so this ticked all the boxes for her.
- A little goes a long way.
- Nice scent.
- Large quantity.
- Bottle easy to grip.
- I really couldn't think of anything, it's a mild bubble bath that does just that. Cannot fault it!
I would definitely re-purchase the bubble bath and I did already buy a second packet of the bath crackles as Moo saw them in the shop and begged for them (even after her experience...once again she was afraid of them). I'd be interested in buying the hair and body wash that we never got to try (if I can ever find it, obviously popular) and yes, I would buy the squidgy soap also, but perhaps not regularly as Moo gets a bit over-excited with it.
The Little Explorers range is available in shops now priced at £1 for the bath crackles, £2.49 for squidgy soap/hair and body wash and £2.99 for the bubble bath.
