Does Lil Rinser Pass The Bath Test?


Bath time could be fun if you didn’t have to wash your children’s hair. All the “my eyes! my eyes!” does not make for an enjoyable hair washing experience. I was sent a sample of Splash Guard’s Lil Rinser and was interested to see how effective it would be.

I do use another product to help keep water out of their faces but wanted to give this Lil Rinser a try.

The press release reads that it’s a form-fitting design that creates a crown over the forehead and ears of a baby or child, safeguarding their face from shampoo, suds and soapy water.

I first tried it on my 5-year-old son who was taking a shower. I placed Lil Rinser over his head and let the water run on the top of his head. It sort of worked, until my kid moved his head around. Okay, so maybe not ideal for the shower. Then I tried it on him and my 2-year-old while they were in the bath another time. Perhaps my son’s head is big but he told me he felt it didn’t fit right (perhaps it shouldn’t come in one size only?) Overall, it did protect their faces but they didn’t like the product on their heads for long. So if your child stays still, it will work.

The only criticism I have with LiL Rinser is that when I did have the product over their heads, I needed a pail or cup in my other hand to pour water over their hair. That said, I prefer the product I have been using for the past three years. I also rely on the good ‘ole washcloth.

However, if you don’t like using the washcloth and have no other product to keep water out of your little one’s face, then you can try this. It might make your child feel a little secure in the bath.

Lil Rinser retails for $9.99 and sells at, Babies “R” Us, Buy Buy Baby, Bed Bath and Beyond, as well as Boots in the UK.
