Organic Oscar Pet Shampoo/Conditioner Review

Dog lovers unite!
I have a very special review for you. Organic Oscar was kind enough to provide me with a couple products from there line for my canine child, Missy! Before I start to review the products for you, meet Missy!

Missy is a 5 to 6 year old Cocker Spaniel rescue. As a pup, she wandered up to a neighbors yard, and being the animal lover that I am, all homeless dogs in the area are brought to my home. Well...it just so happens that this time, I decided to keep her! While taking her in for an app. to have some teeth removed, it was discovered that my baby has an enlarged heart and kidneys. It is thought that she may have been dumped as a puppy for this reason. Luckily, she is under the care of an incredible veterinarian and is being taken care of well! She has never shown any symptoms, but was put on medication just in case! Anyhoo, as you may or may not be able to tell by the photo, she is extremely camera shy! So...bear with me on these pics!

Now...onto my review. So....what is this stuff?
Missy had the same question!

Organic Oscar is an [obviously] Organic pet care line consisting of shampoos, conditioners, sprays and wipes to keep your doggy (or puppy) clean, itch free and smelling great! Created by pet lovers for pet lovers, Organic Oscar is an excellent alternative to many of the bath care items we are accustomed to using on our furry friends. This brand is great for dogs with sensitive skin and is toxin free. Please refer to this excerpt from the Organic Oscar website:

"Recent studies have demonstrated that people tend to take in more toxins by way of touch and inhalation than through the foods they eat. Skin happens to be the largest organ of the body and presents the largest surface area through which toxic chemical movement can occur."

What did I think of it?

Well, for starters, this is the absolute most adorable packaging that I have come across. While packaging doesn't make a product good or bad, it just makes it more fun and also makes it stand out above the competition.

When I think of 'oatmeal' as in the shampoo, I assume a thick, almost chunky consistency. I was slightly concerned as to how this would work on my pooch. Thankfully, the shampoo is nothing like that. Instead, it is rather thin and easy to apply. It also smells great! With a mild peppermint flavor, I love the scent, and I would assume the cooling effect that it has would feel good for Missy! The aloe conditioner has a nice, thick and creamy consistency. As far as scent goes, I really didn't smell much of anything which is fine as I wouldn't want it to over power the shampoo. Such a perfect combination for bath time!

Applying the shampoo and conditioner is super easy! It is thin enough that you only need to use a small amount at each bath. There is also hardly any suds while applying or rinsing. Missy tends to try and eat them (though I can't imagine they'd be appetizing) in most shampoos that I use on her. It can be a pain trying to keep her from lapping them up so that is a nice feature. Plus, you can actually see the water to tell how dirty (or clean) doggy was.

If I had one tiny complaint it would simply be that the tops of the containers are hard to get on and off. Once they are off, really...they don't have to be put back on. However, I just like the packaging, so I choose to struggle putting them on and taking them back off. Once again, just something very minor, but worth mentioning!

When all is said and done, I told myself that I wouldn't use anything on my pup that I wasn't willing to use on myself. Well, I didn't actually put any of this in my hair...but I did wash and condition my hands with it. My skin was extremely soft and smooth so I assume Missy's was the same! Knowing that she feels good after her bath makes me feel good about the product! How do I know she felt good? This is the first time after a bath and drying that she crawled up in the chair and took a nap. Typically she wants to 'rub' (I assume this is what she's doing) the shampoo/conditioner off on all of the furniture! Kudos to you, Organic Oscar


I received the mentioned product complimentary for review purposes. All opinions are 100% my own.
