Nuby All Natural Foaming Shampoo and Body Wash Review

This is a review of Nuby All Natural Foaming Shampoo and Body Wash for kids. This was bought in emergency, when I could not procure the Pigeon hair and body wash I intended to buy. The ingredient list claimed to be "All Natural", so I thought of giving this one a try.

My baby has long hair and we keep them oiled all the time. So I always buy a "Hair and body wash" instead of buying a separate shampoo and body wash. 

Like all organic products, Nuby All Natural Foaming Shampoo and Body Wash does not lather much. Rather it does not lather at all. When you pump, it dispenses only white froth/foam, which was extremely confusing to us. Yes, it is simply like air whipped foam and not even liquid. So it is a little tricky to use especially if you are used to chemical based highly foaming body washes. It has taken me very long to figure out how good or bad it is.

Since we are all used to products that lather, we ended up using a good amount of this wash in just four uses. After that, I realized that it does clean baby's skin extremely well, but it completely fails at washing hair. I have tried for hair wash several times, but every time I had to use another wash to clean baby's hair.

For body, you need one small pump for each body part. I just spread it on baby's each part with hand and mildly rub with my hands. What I liked about this wash is that it does leave the skin squeaky clean and extremely soft.

I personally feel it is like those bottle and nipple cleansers, which smell like lemons and do not lather but still clean and disinfect the bottles. Similarly Nuby All Natural Foaming Shampoo and Body Wash cleanses and disinfects baby's skin very well without any lather.

  • Organic and no harmful chemicals
  • Cleanses skin very well.
  • Truly a no-tear formula. Cleaning baby's face is very easy with this
  • Leaves skin extremely soft, moisturized and clean
  • Rinses off easily without using much water.
  • Very tricky to use, as it does not lather and the liquid turns into foam upon pumping out.
  • Cannot clean oiled baby hair. Not useful for long hair.
  • If you have never used such organic products before, you may initially end up over using this wash just in the attempt of creating lather, which can dry up baby's delicate skin.
To be honest, other chemical washes I have used clean my baby's hair very well but they somewhat react to his facial skin. Nuby's All Natural Foaming Wash is a good product for bathing only, and has no harmful effects. But you do need to learn that it will not lather up and still it can clean effectively without even using a loofah.

Buy only if you want a completely organic product safe for baby's skin for bathing only.

Jungle Magic Kids Perfume Playful Penggy Review

This is a review of Jungle Magic Kids Perfume Playful Penggy. It is an orange flavored kids perfume that comes in an attractive Penguin Shaped bottle.

Jungle Magic Kids Perfume Review

Quantity: 60 ml
Price: INR 250 (I had bought for INR 185 during an online offer)
UPDATE: The price has now been raised to INR 299
Flavor: Orange



A majority of the ingredients are natural flavoring substances obtained from plants. I am really happy with the ingredient list of this Jungle Magic Perfume.  Just because of this main reason, I will rate it higher and safer than other chemical based perfumes in the market. That said, never spray perfume on your baby's skin directly. Either spray on clothes when the kid is wearing them or first spray on the clothes and then make your kid wear those.


I was expecting this perfume to smell like real orange fruit, a little sweet and tangy, something very refreshing for kids. But it has a sweet intoxicating scent, which becomes suffocating at times. The fragrance is very strong and remains in clothes even after washing. You can smell it in the air hours after applying. I will see how it fares in extreme summers and will update the review accordingly.

I had bought the chocolate flavored Jungle Magic perfume from and the packaging was really bad, the small cap on top of the pump flies away while spraying and is also a danger to the kids, being a very small part. The tattoos were useless. 

But I am surprised that this new penguin bottle I have bought from another website, came in a much better packing. The tattoos were really good quality and the cap on top of the pump is not detachable. Both the perfume variations we own were manufactured in June 2011.

Overall, this perfume does have a long-lasting fragrance, but I personally feel kids perfume should not be so strong. It makes me dizzy at times. However, I do not regret buying it for a one-time experience as I got it really cheap. My kid still likes it :)
