Smells Like Teen Spirit
California Baby
By Daryn Guarino

California Baby Overtired & Cranky Bubble BathMy son spotted the bubble-wand in the California Baby Overtired & Cranky Bubble Bath ($12.50 for 13 ounces) from across the room and itís a pretty clever idea.

The "no tears" bubbles hung in strong and thick and both boys enjoyed them. The baby was shy of getting soap in his eyes (a Daddy-bath trademark), but the gentle bubbles quickly won him over.

We sculpted horns and beards and giant noses and blew bubbles and had a great time. The word aromatherapy appears on the label, which means next to nothing to me. The scent was very, very light and quite pleasant, but therapeutic? Sadly, it dried my boys out a little bit. My wife did not report any drying effect and neither can I, so the more delicate skin of my children is to blame.

The Botanical Shampoo and Bodywash ($9.95 for 8.5 ounces) smelled lemony and sweet. As a shampoo, it left their hair shiny and smelling lightly of citrus.

As a body wash, even though it has jojoba and babassu oil, it was too drying for the little guys. Easily worth the price, but not really special enough for gift giving and not for the most sensitive of skin.
