Earthbath Shampoo Review and Giveaway
I’m pretty sure Mr. N is related to Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West. He thinks water will melt him.
Unfortunately for him, his therapy dog duties, the fact that he likes to sleep in the bed and having hair instead of fur means he is doomed to having frequent baths. He stoically tolerates them with the air of a martyr. Mr. N thinks it’s bad enough he’s being subjected to a bath let alone having pictures taken of him during this trying time.
So understandably, shampoo reviews are probably his least favorite (at least until we start reviewing vets). But a very necessary evil in his life. Earthbath sent us their Oatmeal & Aloe Shampoo and Conditioner to review. Mr. N wants two things from bath products: quicker baths and no strong scents.
I appreciate the fact I can identify and can pronounce all the ingredients in the products (shampoo: Purified water, renewable coconut-based cleansers, colloidal oatmeal (3%), aloe vera, almond and vanilla essences, olive oil squalene (natural preservative). I could definitely smell the vanilla and almond scent throughout the washing process but once he was dry, it was barely discernible. He just smelled clean. The scent fades after a day or two.
The products are soap-free, can be used with flea treatments and contain no parabens, phosphates, pthalates, DEA, synthetic dyes or perfumes. They’re made specifically for dry and itchy skin. Mr. N has a flea allergy which drives him bananas and due to our mild winter, the bugs are flourishing. I think the baths have helped alleviate some of the itchiness but not stopped it completely.
What I’ve really noticed though is how soft he feels afterwards. The boyfriend commented that he felt softer than usual. And this is the dog that someone once commented his fur was so soft that it felt like petting nothing at all.
Make sure to enter the giveaway so your dog can enjoy (or not enjoy) a bath of their own with Earthbath’s Oatmeal & Aloe shampoo.
