Precocious Preteen Grand Prize Sponsor Spotlight ~ Ottilie & Lulu

To celebrate Amber's 12th Birthday, I have gathered 12 items that she loves and will putting them all in one package as the grand prize in the "Precocious Preteen Giveaway Hop"! You will be seeing 12 Sponsor Spotlights for this event and on April 24th, Amber's Birthday, I will post the Grand Prize giveaway which will include a linky to several other giveaways in this hop!

Grand Prize item #2
Ottilie & Lulu
Ottilie & Lulu is a natural skin and hair care line created just for tween girls (ages 7-14) to get them excited about grooming. Most recently the line received the 2011 Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal which means the line went through a strict review process of parents and came out on top! Amber and I both LOVE Ottilie and Lulu and the clean, healthy message they’re promoting. Deborah Hernan is a mother of a tween girl and noticed that there wasn’t anything on the market especially for her daughter’s young, delicate skin so she applied her background experience as an executive with Revlon, and created Ottilie & Lulu. Shortly after launching in 2009, the brand caught the attention of Seventeen Magazine’s Style Blog, and has gotten accolades from Discovery Girls Magazine. So many Moms like Deborah can teach their girls about healthy skin and hair care and get them started on good habits that will last a lifetime.
Our Experience:
Since Amber is the one who used these products I am going to let her write out her own experience!  I will say, from my point of view that I have noticed a real change, not only in her skin, but in her desire to take care of herself! I have gone from having to remind her to take a shower to her getting up after going to bed because she forgot to wash her face! Here are Amber's thoughts:

I loved the Ottilie & Lulu products!
  • The Feel Good Shampoo & Body Wash and Shiny Silky Detangler & Conditioner both come in Refreshing Wild Mint scent. The Shampoo & Body Wash makes my hair and body look and smell soft and clean. The Shiny Silky Detangler & Conditioner does exactly what the name implies! It makes my hair shiny, silky and easier to comb than before! 
  • The Body Glow Lotion (Soothing Lavender scent) is super calming. I like to put it on before bed  because it calms me. 
  • The pre-moistened Clean Skin Face Wipes are scented with Soothing Rosewater. When I use them my face feels great and gets me refreshed and alert for a day of learning at school. It's also great for right before bed so that I feel relaxed and clean after a hard day
  • The Everyday Facial Moisturizer & Sunscreen SPF 20 is unscented, but still protects and moisturizes! I use it for everyday use and when I need protection from the sun's harmful rays.
  • Last, but not least, the Moisturizing Lip Balm Ball SPF 20 tastes like vanilla and makes your lips soft and helps keep them from chapping. 
  • Overall, I think Ottilie & Lulu is a great company and will definitely use them again!

  1. My daughter would love these products, and for someone her age I think the most important thing to do to take care of her skin is to treat it gently with gentle natural products and to protect herself from sun damage to keep her skin looking healthy for as long as possible!

  2. The most important thing to do for taking care of your skin is to wash it and keep sunscreen on it when outdoors!
