Professor Scrubbingtons – review and giveaway

I have a muck magnet for a son!  Some days when Monkey comes home from school I take one look at him and now he needs marching straight up to the bathroom. Mud, food, pens, paint, you name it and it will be shown somewhere on Monkey’s body and clothes.  I know that it means he is having fun, but wow, what a mess one little boy can make. Professor Scrubbingtons recently sent us a lovely set of products to help Monkey get clean easily!

Profressor Scrubbingtons

Professor Scrubbingtons offer a range of products aimed specifically with children in mind.  We received the Hair & Body Wash, Shampoo, Condition, Hand & Face Wash (all in 150ml bottles) and a 50ml Roll On Deodorant.  The products contain at least 95% natural ingredients and are paraben and SLS free, for those with more sensitive skins.

The Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair & Body Wash are designed with lids so that children can easily dispense products themselves.  I’m aware that a 5 year old Monkey needs to start taking care of himself a little more. One of the downsides to having an only child, I do tend to do everything for him, I have the time.  But he is starting to get more independent and especially with swimming lessons, it’s much easier if he can wash himself in the showers.

You pull the lip of the cap down, squeeze the bottle and a small amount of product is released.  The products are meant to foam in the hand, but we found they came out rather runny, and the liquid would run through Monkey’s hands before he had a chance to use it. But I’ve been able to wash his hair (and I’ve tried them on mine too) with them and they lather well and leave the hair feeling soft and lightly fragranced.

Professor Scrubbingtons

The Hand & Face Wash has been a big hit, with the larger pump dispenser, it comes out as foam and Monkey has found it really easy to use.

As Monkey is only 5 he doesn’t need Deodorant yet, but I like the idea that Professor Scrubbingtons has designed one with children in mind – free of alcohol and with an easy to use bottle.

Each item shown is available from the Professor Scrubbingtons website for £5.00 per product, and they have deals available too.

  1. Hair & Body Wash – just noticed the comment above and was thinking the exact same – perfect for my son at the swimming pool since its 2 in 1 🙂

  2. Hand and face wash, it stays on the hands long enough to wash them , better than some that wash straight off without really cleaning

  3. I think I out the comment int he other box, sorry, but the hair and body wash makes me feel more cleaner and refreshed than any other product ive used.

  4. The hand and face wash, my son is very lazy in the morning when it comes to getting ready so anything that would encourage him would be great

  5. Hand and Face Wash would be great as it sounds like the foamy stuff they have at the local animal farm for cleaning your hands after petting the animals. The kids always seem to like using it.

  6. The hand and face wash as it would encourage them to wash their hands more and foam would be a lot easier for little hands

  7. I haven’t heard of the range but quite fancy giving it a go as the foaming sounds like a good way to excite my kidlings!! Think I would say the shampoo excites me most as hair washing is where most of our toddler traumas come from!! 🙂

  8. My favourite’s the hair and body wash it would be great to pack for holiday when you’re short of space.

  9. Hair & Body, it means when they are playing in the bath it doesn’t matter if they tip the bottle on each others head!

  10. I have never used Professor Scrubbingtons before but like the idea of the shampoo and conditioner as Lydia’s hair gets tangly and also the hand and face wash which they could use through the day the muckypups!

  11. The hand and face wash sounds great, I love foaming products as I think they go much further. The name of this range is fab!

  12. Hand and face wash sounds good – ideal for those evening we don’t quite have time to fit in a whole bath or shower!

  13. I haven’t tried any of this range before, but the hair and body sounds good and easy, just 1 bottle to take away with you.

  14. hair and body wash as we can kill 2 birds with one stone with a little boy who is going thru a phase of trying to get in and out of the bath as fast as is humanly possible

  15. The Hand and Face Wash, looks so useful and easier for little ones to use, which i think is a really good idea and very convenient x

  16. The hair and body wash, be good for grandson who doesn’t want me in the bathroom with him, he can use it himself

  17. I think the hand wash looks great.It’s lovely to see a range such as this for children.It’s never too early to encourage personal hygiene and it will also make them feel more grown up x

  18. I like the look of the Hand and face wash and it looks colourful enough to encourage my son to wash his face and hands.

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
