Ottilie and LuLu Natural Skin Care For Tweens

michelle-zz-sign

This post is Sponsored by Ottilie and LuLu, all opinions and statements are 100% my own. BTW: My nieces absolutely love the products. 

My nieces are best friends. They do everything together and always have each others back (for the most part).

While their personalities are different, (Michelle loves music, and singing, and Z.Z. loves nature, animals, and learning) one thing remains, whatever one does or gets, the other wants the same.

Michelle is now a tween and her sister Z.Z. is right behind her (in a year or two). Michelle’s body is starting to experience the changes that young girls go through when they become tweens, stinky armpits, little threads of hair under her arms, her first training bra, and a growth spurt. (Mind you, when we got Michelle a training bra Z.Z., of course, wanted one too, and I mean that child wears it around like she really has something to show under it.)

Michelle’s face is also starting to change, I’m no expert in skin care, but it seems like her skin has become more oily than usual. That’s why when I found out about Ottilie and Lulu Natural Skin Care For Tweens I got excited.

Now, I’m the type of aunt that loves to spoil my nieces. I like to take them out on the town, out to eat, allow them to try new things, and buy them all types of products (now, it’s all about the tinted lip gloss, and getting into my makeup box).

Ottilie and LuLu products were a new thing indeed, and when the girls opened the package, they jumped up and down with joy because they had something “new” to try. Ottilie and LuLu skin care products are designed with tweens in mind and are specially formulated just for tween skin. Tween skin is delicate, unique and in a state of constant change.

As adults we know that having a daily skin care regime is essential to keeping our skin clear and healthy. So why not allow our tweens to have the same option?

Using harsh ingredients found in teen and adult products can damage tween skin, and 80% of the damage done to skin happens before the age of 17. Thank God I wasn’t super girly when I was a child, and didn’t start experimenting with face care products until I was well into my teens.

Ottilie and Lulu’s gentle and effective formulas are filled with antioxidants, botanicals, and vitamins ,which is exactly what tween skin needs. The products are also dermatologist and allergy tested and aren’t tested on animals.

One of my nieces favorite products is the “All-in-one Clean Skin Face Wipes.” The wipes leave tweens skin feeling fresh, clean, and eliminates dirt. The wipes have a soothing rosewater scent, and is gentle on the skin. My nieces use the wipes after playing outside, and after doing extracurricular activities.

The girls like to start their mornings by washing their face with the Morning and Night Gel Cleanser. The cleanser is specially formulated for all skin types, and is all-natural. The formula is oil-free and is infused with organic aloe vera juice and purifying witch hazel extract. The cleanser keeps skin purified and glowing.

They follow-up their face wash with the Morning Pure Facial Moisturizer, or the Everyday Facial Moisturizer & Sunscreen. Both moisturizers nourish dry skin and leaves the skin feeling silky, soft, and smooth.

Oh, where has the time gone. My sweet baby girls are growing up, I can’t believe how fast the years have passed. Here are a few pictures showing their growth over the years…

After looking at these pictures, I realize that starting their skin care regime is just one stepping stone. One day they’ll be in high school, want boyfriends (lets pray they have different taste in guys), want to go on dates, homecomings, proms, want to drive cars, leave for college, and eventually have careers, and their own families.

Thinking that far ahead blows my mind, makes me lose my breath. I can’t imagine my baby girls all grown up. It’s like they grow over night. Right now they are at ages where they still think it’s cool to hang with their aunt, but I know the years of not wanting to talk to anyone are right around the corner. Maybe I’ll get lucky and they’ll still want “Ti-Ti” around.

Until then I’ll continue letting them have sleepovers, cuddle up under me (even though the couch is too small for all of us), teaching them to cook, go on mini shopping sprees, and have spa days.

Does your tween have a skin care regimen?  Ottilie and Lulu makes a perfect gift for the Holidays.

    I think it’s great that there’s a line specifically for tweens. It’s sooooo important to establish skin care routines early. This sounds like it would be perfect for my almost 9 year old.

    BTW, your nieces are beautiful!

    What a great skill to teach them early on! Good skin care is going to be something they can use their whole life. Love that you found a great product to get them started.

  3. November 20, 2014 / 1:32 pm

    Yes, teach them early to take care of their skin. It will help in the long run.

    Aren’t they just so cute!! I love the diva stance! I know my nieces are getting to the stage where they need some skin care routines starting, too!

  5. November 20, 2014 / 12:02 pm

    They are beautiful! I love that they have a skin care regimen just for them! What a neat product.

    First off – they are gorgeous! I love that there is a line just for tweens!

    I have 3 girls, two of them teens already.. in fact my oldest is a high school senior and I already feel the void she will be leaving when she embarks on the next big adventure of her life… Hang on to these precious years, they go by much too fast! The earlier we teach our daughters to care for their skin the better. I favor organic products with a short list of ingredients and of course teach them the importance of healthy nutrition and hydration and how that plays a huge role in the health of their skin. I had not heard Ottilie and Lulu before but will check them out. 🙂

    Oh this is fantastic. My daughter is 15 now and we had SUCH a hard time finding stuff that didnt dry out her skin. I am so glad to see things geared towards those beginning crazy hormonal years for girls skin. I will have to remember this when my youngest hits that stage… which is only a few years away… eeeks lol

    I love how this introduces kids to a good skin care routine. I also like that the packaging isn’t too “glitzy”, a great way to teach to read labels, not just grab.

  10. November 20, 2014 / 7:41 am

    Omg they are so adorable! And their little friendship is just amazing. This sounds like a great product. May have to try it when my girls get old enough. Oh I don’t want them to grow up!

  11. November 20, 2014 / 7:36 am

    They grow up so fast! They are adorable.

  12. November 19, 2014 / 11:26 pm

    They are too cute. It’s great to teach tweens early how to care for their skin so that good habits are established. I’ll have to check this out for my kids.

  13. November 19, 2014 / 9:05 pm

    Awww they are so cute together! I don’t have a tween yet but I will eventually and it’s great to find products that can help them develop a routine for keeping their skin healthy

    This sounds like a great product and perfect for teaching hygiene routine.

  15. November 19, 2014 / 8:10 pm

    Ottilie and Lulu looks like a great line of products! I’ll have to share this with my sister & niece.

  16. November 19, 2014 / 8:02 pm

    I will have to tell my nieces about this! My daughter is still too small, but I do have a lot of nieces who would love this!

  17. November 19, 2014 / 7:12 pm

    I love that your nieces are best friends. I also love that you, as an Auntie, take the time to invest in their lives like you do!

  18. November 19, 2014 / 6:36 pm

    I’ve been looking for something for my neice to try and this sound perfect. I love how the cousins are so close by the way.

  19. November 19, 2014 / 6:11 pm

    That’s great that they’re starting a good skin care routine now while they’re young. I hope it sticks for a lifetime. I don’t like that our kids grow up either!
