Bath time! feat. Anovia 2-in-1 Shampoo Conditioner *Review*

Carson has never been a fan of baths.

Showers, well, I can count on one hand the number of showers he's successfully had.

Actually... there was one time after the baths on a Haven holiday, I must have looked like the most evil woman! I had to restrain him and force him under the water to rinse the shampoo out. There was more snot and tears than water in that shower. Gross!

Anyway, I try my best to distract him when he's in the bath and I've even resorted to hinting that bump will be more brave than he is when it comes to baths - he didn't like this one bit and I've seen a positive change in his attitude of late.

Buying child specific toiletries appear to work, to a certain extent, i.e. the build up to shampooing is less strained, but then actually coming to use it is a big fat fail!

When Anovia offered to send their cute little bottle of Anovia Kids 2-in-1 Shampoo to review, I told Carson that he had the chance to internet famous... but it meant no tears, honest opinions and (get this...) WASHING YOUR OWN HAIR!!

Big ask, I know... but he knows how much I love my blogging and often asks if he's receiving a parcel himself so I thought this was the perfect opportunity.

Here are Carson's thoughts...

"Because the bottle has a face on, it's like your friend at bath time" 
"It has the No Tears badge on it so the magic ingredient means I can't cry!" 
"It smells like pear drops, I want to eat it."  

Do NOT worry! He know's not to eat it, he is just trying to tell you how beautiful it smells!

And boy, is he right!

The apple & Pear fragrance is very intense. Carson's pillow smells beautiful this morning after having slept on it last night after bath time.

The product promises to be gentle with a de-tangling formula.

I can vouch for this as, not only was Carson's hair soft and easy to comb afterwards, I also nabbed a bit and used it myself. The comb does not struggle to get through long hair at all.

Our verdict? 

Very cost effective at around £1.29, this not only does what it says on the bottle, it made bath time fun time - priceless.
We love it!!

DISCLAIMER: I was sent this product for the purposes of review however all thoughts and opinions are our own, as always!


  1. aw cute and he is so adorable! the fragrance sounds so nice!

  2. Our eldest son, now 5, used to hate having his hair washed. I do think finding child-friendly products that they like the smell of, makes a huge difference!

  3. Bless him - he looks so proud of himself washing his hair!

  4. Fab review Carson. I have used these before but Olivia is too 'grown up' now but I loved that they were no tears formula

  5. I did the Anovia review too. Linked up to last weeks's #TriedTested with it. Wish I'd thought to suggest that my kids washed their own hair!

  6. This looks great stuff and I love Carsons opinions! Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested
