I stumbled across ON! Juniper purely by chance a few months ago. I was really pleased with this little stumble because what I discovered was that this children’s cosmetic brand not only catered for girls and boys, but that all products were organic and completely natural.
Sofia was so excited to receive her ON! Juniper parcel and I was intrigued to see what these all natural products would look like. After all, if it was organic and natural then surely the packaging wouldn’t appeal to kids? I wondered if the lip balm would get her as excited as the garish glittery Frozen stuff she usually piles on and which subsequently dries her mouth out for days?
I am pleased to say that this award winning, organic and completely natural cola flavoured lip balm (with mermaid label and glittery heart charm!) is one that’s not ‘mysteriously got lost’ in the bin!
There are six different flavours to choose from (bubblegum, cola, mint, passionfruit, cherry and chocolate) and six different labels to decorate the tube (flamingo, mermaid, unicorn, wolf, hummingbird and skull and crossbones) – and if you’re feeling really fancy then there’s also a few charms to pick from too!
Sofia has been desperate for a ghastly coloured fizzy bath bomb that she’s seen the kids on YouTube bathing in, but I’ve always said no to her requests as I worry about her delicate bits and pieces. However, with the arrival of our ON! Juniper gift package came an Award Winning (Free from Skincare Awards 2018) Super Colour Bath Bomb that tints the water a lovely greeny colour, which definitely saw bath time eeked out longer that evening and with even more squeals as she watched the ‘bomb’ fizz and fuzz about in the water.
There was no need for me to panic about her getting sore or itchy bits because the ‘ingredient’ that tints the water is an organic superfood and natural colourant – the same superfoods that are chalked full of nutrients and vitamins. When Sofia stepped out of the bath her skin was so soft and felt really hydrated and moisturised too!
And we’ve still got the biggie to come – the bath bomb with the hidden charm – though after the success of the ‘standard’ colour bomb, I’ve decided that I’m going to wrap that up as a Stocking Filler for her for Christmas!
So who are ON! Juniper?
ON! Juniper was founded by Tess Ackland to provide cosmetic products made from organic and natural ingredients for kids, that would support their development towards being self-aware, happy and healthy. ON! Juniper provides kids the opportunity to make empowered choices, choices to buy products that we consider are healthier and safer for their development and better for the environment.
Tess did a lot of research into the increasingly high records of depression and anxiety levels among youth and wanted to provide a way for kids to express who they are and be proud of it. We’ve developed the SHH…promise to do this. It’s their commitment to provide the foundation to help kids feel empowered and make empowered choices when it comes to their body.
