Nemo Bubbly Bath – Review

Nemo has to be my children’s number one fish – they love his brightly coloured body and are always on the lookout for him when we pop down to our local aquarium for the afternoon.  So when a bottle of Nemo Soft & Gentle Bubbly Bath landed through our letterbox, they both squealed in delight saying “Please can we have Nemo in the bath tonight”.

Nemo BottleNemo Bubbly Bath is made by H&A, a brand we’ve come to know and love over the last couple of years, with some fabulous gift sets available at Christmas time.  My two had a great selection including Disney Princess and Jake and the Neverland Pirates which kept them occupied over multiple bathtimes, including bath fizzers, bath crayons and blow in the bath bubbles!

The Nemo Bubbly Bath itself has been specially formulated for a child’s delicate skin and is suitable for newborns upwards.  Being dermatologically tested, hypoallergenic and tear free, there really are no nasties in here to upset your child’s skin.  The bright images on the bottle really attract children to want to use it, which for me is a bonus as I know getting two children into the bath each night can be tough, especially when they are tired and grumpy, so there is nothing better than some fun bath products and toys to instantly bring them back to life ready for a fun time in the bath.

When bathtime arrived that evening, Miss M and Mister B couldn’t wait to get in and bath with Nemo, and see if his bubbles were really as soft and gentle as the bottle says.


With Nemo at the ready, the kids all excited,
The water was flowing for the bath of the night.
Miss M’s favourite clown fish, she wanted to pour,
And fill up the tub with some bubbles to explore.
So into the bath, Nemo’s magic ignited,
The children’s eyes lit up, they were so delighted.
It was bubbles galore, Oh, where to explore?
Look shouted Mister B, there’s more and more!
With a soft and gentle formula, I knew they’d be safe,
Hypoallergenic too and no tears on their face.
They giggled, they laughed, they played like little ones should,
Their imagination’s flowing, as much as they could.
With a pirate bubble beard, Miss M said “Let’s party”,
And Mister B shouted out, “Ahoy there, me hearties!”.
He then rolled a bubble ball, the biggest you’ve ever seen,
A snowball he said, then rubbed himself to get clean.
Miss M lay in the bubbles, she said it was like a bed of snow,
So soft and gentle around her face, right down to her toes.
After an hour of fun, it was time to get out,
Wrapped up in their towels, they waved Nemo night, night.
With soft, clean smelling skin, I tucked them to bed,
And watched them drift off to get all their zeds.
  With my little ones calm and asleep, I turned off the light,
Leaving them sweet dreams of Nemo, all through the night…


Nemo5As you can see, H&A‘s Nemo Bubbly Bath has been a total success with 6yr old Miss M and 3yr old Mister B.  They found the formula perfect on their skin and loved the bubbles.  Mummy loved the easy to pour bottle with a simple clip down lid and it’s also excellent value for money.  We would definitely recommend Nemo Bubbly Bath to others to try!

Nemo3We even took a peep at the H&A website to see what else was on offer and their eyes lit up as they made a wishlist of all the products they want to try.  Mister B has his eyes on the Jake and the Never Land Pirate goodies and Miss M spotted the Disney princess haircare.  She has curly, unruly hair so she wants me to buy the Ariel detangler for her to try!

We think H&A have a really fun, exciting range of toiletry products for children, with a wide range of characters, there’s something for everyone.  But the thing that really shines for us, is the different types of fun products, such as the bath fizzers and fun shaped sponges – it really does help entertain little ones in the bath and keep them amused, making bathtime a much more pleasant and enjoyable experience for parents!!

We received the Nemo Bubbly Bath to review and this is our entry into the Tots100 Bathtime Fun Squad ambassador competition with H&A.

Matey Bubble Bath and Bath Book – Review

Matey is a bubble bath I remember from my childhood.  The character bottles are fun and you always get plenty of bubbles.  I like to try to make bath time fun for the children as they enjoy it more and it’s easier for me.  We were sent some Matey to try along with a limited edition Matey bath time book.


Five year old Miss M was immediately drawn to the bottle and asked to pour it into the bath.  You get a lot of bubbles from this for a small amount which is pleasing and they couldn’t wait to jump in.  Mister B had already taken control of the bath book, eager to get in the bath and read the story.

Both children loved the pirate theme of the book, which follows Max Matey and Molly Matey’s adventures in the bath tub, searching through all the bubbles looking for buried treasure!

Matey 2

The Matey bath book certainly kept them entertained and has come out each bath time along with Molly Matey’s bubbles which are a big hit – they love pouring all the bubbles in and out of different pots and it can be hard to get them out of the bath although I shouldn’t complain!

Vosene Kids Hair and Bath products – Review

When Mummy News offered me the chance to try some of the products from Vosene Kids, I was very keen to try, particularly as their hair products contain natural head lice repellents.  Unfortunately since Miss M started school in September we receive the dreaded letter home from school every couple of months to say a number of cases have been noticed in the class.

We did find some on poor Miss M about a month ago and it is a nightmare to try to comb them out of her thick, curly hair so to have a repellent in her daily shampoo sounds like a dream product to me.

v1 v2 v3 v4

The 3 in 1 conditioning shampoo has a fresh, clean smell due to its natural ingredients Tea Tree Oil and Lemon Eucalyptus – the added repellents to keep those lice at bay.  We found theat the shampoo lathered nicely and cleaned the hair.  With Miss M’s unruly thick curls we found the conditioning bounce spray a godsend when trying to comb the hair through.  This also contains the head lice repellents so her hair was left fresh and soft with the hope that we won’t be seeing an appearance of the dreaded lice anytime again soon.


The Afterswim Hair & Body Wash has proved useful as Miss M went on an intensive swimming course last week, having lessons everyday.  I liked the tube that this came in, easy to throw in your swimming bag, handy to use in the showers and great that it is a 2 in 1 product.  We found this really easy to use and the perfect for a quick wash after swimming.

Lastly we tried the Moisturising Bubble Bath & Body Wash.  We used it as a bubble bath and were impressed with all the bubbles – a quality Miss M and Mister B always look out for at bathtimes!  For washing, we used some on their bath sponges and found it lathered nicely into a rich, soft foam, that left their skin clean and soft.  I really liked this and would be more than happy to use it again.

Overall I have to say I was quite impressed with the Vosene Kids range, one I may not have thought about buying before, but having tried a number of products from the Vosene range they are all of a good quality I will definitely consider them next time I need to purchase kids hair and bath products.  The head lice repellent shampoos I think will be an essential – I’d much rather prevent Miss M from getting them, than go through the hassle of getting rid of them.

Vosene Kids products are available from a variety of supermarkets and all good chemists.
