True Blue Grapefruit and Chamomile Dog Shampoo Review

PetSugar Street Team: True Blue Super Fresh Shampoo

Good thing there are plenty of other dog owners in the office, otherwise North would have a serious case of dandruff! I've been wanting to test out all the shampoos I've had stashed in my desk for a while now, but if I bathe my pup too often, his skin gets flaky and dry. Thankfully, Samson was good and stinky (and needed to be fresh and clean for our Dog Day on the Bay) when I asked LilPeaPod to test out True Blue's Super Fresh Grapefruit and Chamomile Shampoo ($13).

I liked the fact that True Blue was not only detergent-free, but is never tested on animals, is hypoallergenic, and is even safe for the earth — right down to the biodegradable bottle. What did our tester like about this shampoo, besides the fact that it smells divine? Find out if it's anything to bark about, and check out Samson's coat in a before and after when you


LilPeaPod says:
At first sniff, True Blue smells like something out of a fresh botanical garden, but it doesn't overpower your nose. Good thing, since Samson isn't into all that flowery stuff — he prefers grass and dirt over roses and lilies. Getting the shampoo out of the bottle was easy enough (there's nothing worse than straining with wet hands to squeeze product onto your slippery and anxious dog), and it lathered up quite nicely.

With some dog shampoos, I've found that I have to put a ton on him to feel like I'm getting enough lather and coverage, but True Blue went the distance. It even rinsed off really quickly, just like the bottle promised. Plus, it didn't leave a film on his coat, and after he dried off he was silky and shiny, and didn't smell like a wet dog! Fancy that.

My vet said that the best thing to use is Johnson & Johnson's baby shampoo. I'm going to try it out the next time my pup needs a bath!

Susanna- I was wondering the same thing! I'm super allergic to grapefruit and floral scents, so this is definitely not for Zena. I use Hartz Sensitive Skin Shampoo. It doesn't irritate Zena's or my skin nor does it cause me to be bedridden for three to four days.

Dog shampoo that's never been tested on animals? What did they do, test it on people? I mean, I get what they mean, but it just sounds weird!
