Hot Tot Hair and Skincare – Safe and Smells Great!

gift ideas

Captain Fussybuckets struggled with painful eczema and skin problems for the first 2 1/2 years of his life.  We took him to the doctor, tried creams, allergy medicines, oatmeal baths, apple cider vinegar baths, and nothing just seemed to consistently work for him.  Finally I realized that first, he must have pure, alcohol free, heavy moisturizer on his legs when his eczema acts up.  Secondly, I realized that his skin was less likely to have problems in the first place if I used gentle cleansers on him in the bath tub.  Now, some Baby soaps say they are gentle, but if you look at the ingredients list, you'll see that they're just NOT gentle enough.  I have found that if the soaps are free of harsh chemicals, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, formaldehyde (yes, they really DO put that in baby soap!), and other yuckies, then he doesn't have any issues with his skin.  Baby D's skin is a little better and he hasn't had many eczema issues, but using stuff that is free of chemicals that shouldn't be in skin products in the first place makes me feel better!  So when I was asked to review a product from the Hot Tot line, I quickly checked out their website and knew it would be great for the boys and their skin!

I chose the Hot Tot Spotless Tot to review, which is an "extra gentle hair and body cleanser created for babies and beyond."  We love Spotless Tot because it smells good and is free of all of the chemicals that irritate the boys' skin and just aren't good for them.  We use it on their hair and body, and sometimes for hand washing, too:

I just love foam cleansers and the boys do, too.  It makes bathtime fun and it's easy for them to wash themselves with the foam.

for kids

Hot Tot has a full line of products for babies and kids, including Sweet Pea Serum, Conditioning Detangler, Styling Gel, Structure Whip, and Finishing Mist, Shampoo, and Conditioner.  These would make great stocking stuffers or Christmas gifts! The Spotless Tot sells for $14 on the Hot Tot website or on Amazon.  Connect with Hot Tot on Twitter and Facebook.

Here at Life With Captain Fussybuckets, I am THRILLED that Moody Sisters Organic Skincare is giving away a $25 gift code to their Etsy store!!  I have heard a lot about Moody Sisters over the past few months, so I decided to contact them and I'm happy to present them to you today!  

The Moody Sisters are actually real sisters who have "moody skin" and have worked to come up with awesome, effective, organic skincare products!  They make everything from deoderant to bug spray, moisturizers to acne products and everything in between!

I was fortunate to get to review two items from Moody Sisters!  First was the Face & Lip Scrub:

Moody Sisters Organic

I love how all of the ingredients are listed right there on the front, so there's absolutely no guessing.  And all of Moody Sisters' products are paraben and preservative free, by the way, so you can rest assured that what you're putting on your skin is the very best!  BUT the great news is that it's not ridiculously priced like it should be, and well, that's awesome news!

Okay, back to the Face & Lip Scrub.  This stuff is pretty awesome.  It suggests on the label to mix it in with your cleanser or use it separately, but I like to kill two birds with one stone, so I mixed it in with my gentlest of gentle cleanser and I like it!  I love the way it makes my skin feel super smooth without drying it out a ton.  My skin is super sensitive, but this wasn't harsh on it at all.  You can get Moody Sisters' Face & Lip Scrub in a 2 oz. container (not what is pictured) for only $10.

Next, I happily tried out the Moody Sisters' Lip Balm in Kiss My Almond.  I'm a lip balm fanatic and have been searching for *the* perfect lip balm since giving up my petroleum laced lip balm of the past.  THIS is *the* PERFECT lip balm, folks.  And I promise I'm not just saying that.  This stuff is good, super, super good!!!  It smells good, it glides on my lip, and keeps them moisturized for a super long time.  IF you don't believe me, I've actually ordered MORE lip balm since I received these products for review.  I ordered the Micheivous Mint and it is just as wonderful!  You can order your very own magical lip balm for only $4.

And while we're at it, I'll go ahead and admit that I bought a jar of Intense Moisturizing Cream for my super dry skin and of course, that is awesome, as well. So there you go, four different products, all tested by me, all awesome!  smiley

You can connect with the Moody Sisters on Facebook and Twitter and check out their products on the Moody Sisters website or at their Etsy store.  They also have a blog that they update regularly, so check that out, too!
