Girl Lane is a funky new skin, body and haircare range designed for ‘tweens and teens.
The range has been created by three very passionate mums who realised there were no options available for young girls gentle and effective enough to help protect and nurture their girls’ skin and hair.
When I asked my 11-year-old niece what sort of beauty products were out there for girls her age she said “What else is there (in skincare) except Oil of Olay?”
According to co-founder, mum and pharmacist Deborah Williams, young girls have beautiful skin, but it is immature and fragile, and needs to be protected and strengthened daily. Girl Lane products are specifically formulated for young skin, with a balance of science and natural botanicals to provide the optimum quality skincare.
Girl Lane has 15 different products in its range from paw paw lip balm to hydrating shampoo, all available in funky, colourful packaging.
The products are grouped in different colours to help identify the range: Hot pink for body care, purple/green for skincare; light red/orange for haircare.
The packaging is fun, modern and on trend to cater towards the ‘tween market. 11-year-old Ms M reports that “the style of writing stands out; it looks cool with the circles, kisses and hugs”.
The lovely Girl Lane team sent out some different products to Ms M to road-test. She loved her pack and couldn’t wait to start using the lotions and potions. Girl Lane products have since become part of her daily skincare and haircare routine. Her skin is changing as she approaches her teens so now is the right time to start moisturising!
Here’s her lowdown on the different products she tried:
Girl Lane Nourishing Face Moisturiser 50ml
- “Makes my face feel soft”
- Easy to apply
- Not greasy
Girl Lane Gentle Body Wash 250ml
- “Makes my body feel nice and soft”
- “Love the foam”
- “Smells nice” – mild coconut
Girl Lane Detangling Mist 125ml
- “Love the smell” – Japanese Plum
- “Makes my hair feel soft”
- “Less knots in my hair which makes my mum happy!”
And what about my sister, Ms M’s mum? Abigail reports that the entire range is affordable and the moisturiser is light; “perfect for my 11 year old daughter’s skin”. She also likes that there’s no harsh perfume smells.
Ms M’s hair is super long and thick and she washes it herself now which can mean quite a few knots. The Girl Lane Detangling Mist is a lifesaver.
Dance mums will also love this spray to help keep those buns, braids and ponytails neat and slick…
You’ll find Girl Land in Priceline, or you shop the range from their online store
The Girl Lane Facebook page is also fun for young girls (over 13 of course!) Its colourful and bright and ties in with Girlfriend Magazine with competitions, celebrity photos and cool apps tweens love like Musical ly.
