Mini-U bath bombs for kids 

My girls love the things I do and always want their own make up and perfume despite being only 3 and 8. They also love bath stuff and anything smelly and bubbly. Jordanna enjoys bath bombs but can be prone to skin reactions and spots from certain products and finding bath bombs just for kids is not easy as not many places make them. But… Mini-U do!  

 They have just launched this rather cute looking package with a transparent window. Inside are 6 coloured bath bombs in 6 fruity varieties – blueberry, melon, kiwi, mango, banana, vanilla & Shea. The packaging is pretty minimal being just the box and the bath bombs individually wrapped in plastic. 

 

My girls were really excited about using these. All Mini-U products are safe and free of parabens and SLS/SLES (I’m unsure what they are) and so kinder on the skin.

Jordanna opened the first bath bomb (pink one) and dropped in bath. It immediately started to fizz and turned the water pink. 

 It only turned the water pink too and not skin or anything else. When the bomb had fizzed right down a little plastic thing appeared which at first looked like a tablet pill. This is actually a surprise small gift which are found in each one of the bath bombs. In our first one we found this little foam octopus. 

 I think my girls are now pretty eager to find out what’s hidden in the other five.

The bath bomb left no stains on the bath and Jordanna has not developed any rash or reaction to them so far. So all good.

    Hi Bizzimummy,

    As you mentioned in your post that there was a question mark around some of the Mini-U ingredients we thought it might be helpful to share some knowledge to you and your readers about SLS/SLES and Parabens.
    So here is a quick bit of ingredient bumph!

    Sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) is an anionic detergent and surfactant found in many personal care products (soaps, shampoos, toothpaste etc.). SLES is an inexpensive foaming agent. SLES and sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) are surfactants that are used in many cosmetic products for their cleaning and emulsifying properties. Due to their harsh cleansing properties they are linked to skin irritation, allergic reactions, dermatitis, and dryness, to the skin and eyes.

    Parabens are a group of compounds widely used as antimicrobial preservatives in food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics products, including underarm deodorants.
    Parabens are absorbed through intact skin and from the gastrointestinal tract and have been linked to cancer cells from breast tumour biopsy’s.

    Mini-U believe in avoiding these ingredients and replacing them with more gentle and safer alternatives.

    I hope that helps to better understand.
    Thank you for the review and happy reading to all.
    Best wishes
    Mini-U
