Thank you for entering*  

 Our Philosophy
We encourage kids to form healthy habits that last a lifetime. By combining all natural skincare with fun and education, TruKid™ cultivates a relationship between healthy habits and being a kid. In turn, our goal is that kids will grow up taking care of themselves, each other and their environment. From our Friendly Face Wash™ to our Funny Foot Cream™, families receive only the best in ingredients, attention and dedication to their well being.

What makes us different?
Differences are what make everyone special and stand out from the crowd. TruKid™ believes in being proud of who you are. We are a different sort of company and of course, proud of it! For starters, our products are uniquely created just for kids of all ages (there simply weren't enough healthy skincare products out there just for kids). Second, we are all natural and completely chemical free. But what sets us apart even more than our products, is our philosophy. TruKid™ strives to impact the world one healthy habit at a time. Through rhymes, songs, facts and more, we provide the tools your family can use to start forming healthy habits the fun way. 

Why use TruKid™
 Well, besides the fact that we only use ingredients that are good for you, we spent a lot of time making our products just right! We encourage kids and their families alike to use our product line everyday. Everything from the lighter textures for quick and easy application to the great, cheerful scents that kids love; we made sure everything was kid approved. You have enough to worry about, let us help you teach your kids healthy skin care habits to last their lifetime.

I received a variety of products to try from TruKid™. I was really excited to try these products because both of my girls have skin issues. We use products that are supposed to be good for sensitive skin and yet they still cry that it burns and it hurts. I received Friendly Face Wash, Silly Shampoo, Cool Conditioner, Bubbly Body Wash, Happy Face and Body Lotion, Sunny Days Sunscreen tube and face & body stick.

My first impression of these products is that they are bright and cheery. They really draw in the kids attention and make them want to use these products. I smelled these as soon as I got them and was expecting a neutral, plain scent but was pleasantly surprised with a light fruity almost citrus-like scent.  These products also have fun pictures to let your child know what that product is used for. This is great for pre-readers as well as beginning readers.

We used the Friendly Face Wash as a hand soap as well as a face wash. It is very gentle yet effective. Some hand soaps (particularly commercial ones like those found in schools) leave a rash that looks much like a chemical burn on my older daughters hands and wrists, this soap has helped to clear that right up.

The Bubbly Body Wash has a stick figure on it that lets your children know that this is to be used on your body. This helped my kids because they tend to get shampoo/conditioners mixed up with body wash. This helped them to be more independent when washing up and they really liked that. This was very gentle on their sensitive skin and they did not fight to wash up.

My kids really liked the name of the Silly Shampoo, they also like the face icon with the crazy hair that let them know this was to be used on their hair. This product suds nicely and cleans well, it did not make their hair tangle. It has the same nice scent as the rest of the products.

The Cool Conditioner also has the face with the silly hair that my girls liked so much. This icon has brought on many giggles during bath time. This product left my girls hair soft and easy to comb.

I really liked all of the products that I received, but the Happy Face and Body Lotion is my favorite. I have tried so many lotions and they all burn my girls when they use them. When I would bring out the lotion bottle my oldest would literally be in tears. Now when I tell her we need to use lotion she always wants the lotion in the green bottle and she will happily use it. This product has made dealing with my girls sensitive skin so much easier.

My girls typically do not like to use sunscreen because of the smell. We all loved that these have the same fruity scent as the rest of the products. It also went on thick but smooth and a little went a long way. This product did not break the girls out or sting their skin. I love that the face and body stick fits right in my purse so I always have it with me, especially nice for those impromptu visits to the park!

Overall I really loved all of the products that I tried. I think their prices are very reasonable and some are sold in packs of 3 which makes them cost even less when bought like that. The only thing I would like to see is a pack of different products that would make them more cost effective, for example a shampoo, conditioner, and a lotion together. I do see this as a group of products I will purchase in the future and that my family will use on a regular basis.
