Product Review - Jordan Oral Care Products

~ Posted on Thursday, July 19, 2018 at 12:09 AM ~

As a busy mum with 4 kiddos between 1.5year-old to 9-years old, I have started cutting down on doing product reviews to focus on our childcare and family life, home cooking, education, helping with hubby's administration site of the business and sharing informational articles on my FB fan page so I am only accepting and prioritizing products that can fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or educational stuff, family products, something along those genre)! Today's post is my review on Jordan oral care products.

Like my previous review experiences with Jordan, they have always been ever so generous in sending me a range of oral care products for my family (young and not so young hahaha...) to try. This round, I will focus more on their range of products for children. FYI, this year, Jordan rolls out the much-awaited children's toothpaste in 2 groups, ranging from 0-5 years old and 6 to 12 years old. What caught my attention this round is the new flossing and toothpaste products for children! Btw, Jordan's toothpaste products are halal, having been certified by JAKIM on 16 May 2018.

Jordan Oral Care

 Our littlest family member is about 1.5-year-old now and has been ever so eager to follow and replicate his older siblings. Hence, I started brushing his teeth when he turned 1 year old. He is currently using the Step 1 range of toothbrush which is meant for 0-2 years old and it has a small head with soft bristles which was specially designed for children's first teeth.

I chose the orange and blue tipped colour toothbrush for him and use a pea sized toothpaste for him. Of course, at his age, I will brush his teeth first and then while I brush mine, I will let him continue to 'brush' on his teeth since he is still very excited he is allowed to 'brush' his own teeth himself.

Jordan Oral Care

For our 4.5-years-old girl, she was so excited to have a new pink coloured toothbrush. Her Step 2 toothbrush is specially designed to clean milk teeth in children around her age, which is 3-5 years. I like that the toothbrush has an ergonomic handle, easy for her small hand to grip during the few occasions where I let her brush her teeth by herself, while I stood watching next to her. Sometimes I will be the one brushing her teeth so yes, I do feel the handle is ergonomic to the grip for parents' as well.

From left to right: Hello Smile (for 9.5 yo), Step 3 (for 6.5 yo), Step 2 (for 4.5 yo) and Step 1 (for 1.5 yo)

For our 6.5-years-old girl, her orange and white coloured Step 3 toothbrush is designed to meet the challenging oral needs of 6 to 9 years old children. The challenge at this age is that, with both milk and permanent teeth, the positioning of the teeth may be uneven. The quality and placement of the bristles and head become even more important - hence you can see there are 2 bristle heads on the toothbrush where the integrated ‘solo brush’ reaches molars and hard-to-reach spaces between the teeth and gums ensuring that no teeth or surfaces need be forgotten. She has so far lost 2 baby teeth so I feel this toothbrush helps her in terms of transitioning to permanent teeth.

Jordan Oral Care

For our 9.5-years-old boy, he is currently using the Hello Smile range which has active tip and bi-level bristles to clean between teeth. It also comes with a cheek and tongue cleaner and the handle is flexible and has a rubberised grip. The colours are eye-catching and his favourites too!

Jordan Oral Care

Our kiddos also tried the Kids Toothpaste (for age 0-5) and Junior Toothpaste (for age 6-12).The toothpastes are SLS free and the fluoride ppm level is appropriate for the kids' age range.

One of the highlights of our review this time is the Kids Flosser. With a smaller handle and fruity flavored floss, it is definitely exciting for our children to try out. Our 6.5-years-old girl especially enjoys using the Kids Flosser and it is great to know even dentist recommended children to start flossing from 5-6 years old.

Of course, our kiddos were amazed to see there were still some remnants that can be flossed out even after they have brushed their teeth! Compared to the traditional string floss, I think our children prefer the Kids Flosser as the ergonomic handle with soft rubber which allows for better grip especially when small hands are holding it and trying to floss their own teeth themselves. Kudos for the awesome product!

 Overall feedback, I'm very happy we get to review these products AGAIN!

Jordan oral care products are definitely worth the long run for our whole family!

Product Review - Beaudex Kids

~ Posted on Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at 7:43 AM ~

As a busy mum with 4 kiddos between 1.5year-old to 9-years old, I have started cutting down on doing product reviews to focus on our childcare and family life, home cooking, education, helping with hubby's administration site of the business and sharing informational articles on my FB fan page so I am only accepting and prioritizing products that can fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or educational stuff, family products, something along those genre)! Today's post is my review on Beaudex Kids range of products.

Extreme Colouring- Amazing World

Beaudex Kids

About the company/products:

"We believe in providing the best for our children. As parents, we were seeking for a brand that appeals to the children A brand that would instill the importance of personal hygiene in them. We wanted products that were mild, gentle and safe for our children. We realised we were not alone in this search, and this inspired the creation of Beaudex Kids.

Beaudex Kids is a wellness brand built on strong family values: honesty, dedication and community. Our products must not just be safe for children, they must be accessible too. Quality and affordability is foremost on our minds, as we set out to empower people to live happy and healthy lives."

I received the following products for my review. Eye catching colour on each bottle with cute superhero illustrations that appeals to young children, for sure! FYI, the products are specially crafted to be mild, gentle and safe for children and there are free from paraben, SLE/SLS and soap. They are also developed using a combination of Oat milk, soymilk and rice milk to bring out the glow in our children's complexion.

Beaudex Kids

A quick feedback on the packaging of the products - I like the long slim nozzle on the bottles. You just need to lightly press with the palm of your hands to squeeze out the amount of liquid you required.

Beaudex Kids

The first product that my kiddos were so excited to try is the Bubble Bath. From time to time, our girls love playing in their bath tub and of course, I let them try this out and see how it goes. It smells good and made loads of bubble foam, which our girls enjoy playing with.

I personally love the Yogurt Body Wash as it smells so so good! I know cos' I use it sometimes hahaha...

Beaudex Kids

The Hair Shampoo is great as well and cleans the hair thoroughly without leaving any greasy residue behind. A little dab of the shampoo is enough for the job and my kiddos' hair smells good after that!

For the final product which is the Head-to-Toe Wash, I like a product that covers head to toe and the idea of one simple product that handles everything top to bottom so this is also regularly being use when my kiddos take their bath.

In summary, a wonderful range of products that is suitable for children to use, one that us parents won't have to worry about chemical ingredients etc... I'm thankful that we have been given the privilege to try them out!

I'm a full-time mummy

At present, the products can be found in Bath & Kids, Lot S212, Second Floor (on the link bridge), 1Utama Shopping Centre.

Beaudex Kids

The products will be made available in major pharmacies and supermarkets in the near future.

Cycling To Stay Fit And Healthy

~ Posted on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at 1:06 PM ~

We need to be physically active to remain fit and healthy to enjoy a good quality life. One of the many activities to stay fit and healthy is cycling. Outdoor cycling especially in the countryside, parks, or beaches can be fun and interesting where you can enjoy the nature around you and breathe in the fresh, clean air.

Cycling regularly is a great way to protect yourself from many serious health problems such as heart diseases, obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol level, etc. This low impact cycling is a healthy and enjoyable exercise for people of all ages. Cycling is fun, cheap and a great exercise to be enjoyed as a family and a great bonding for strong, healthy relationship.

Cycling does not require much physical skill. All you need to do is know how to balance and ride a bicycle. Pedalling uses most of your major muscle groups and is good for building up strength and stamina. You may start off with short distance rides and as you progress, you will be able to enjoy longer distances with uphill and downhill cruise included.

If you are staying near the beach, all you need is a beach cruiser bike with gears. You can check out the women’s beach cruiser with gears if you are looking for a women’s bike. These bikes come in different speeds. If you are a new beginner to biking, you will need to get some basic gadgets before you start your biking rides.

1.    A helmet to protect your head while riding. Choose a helmet that fits properly and comfortably.
2.    Proper cycling apparel to prepare for all weather such as waterproof jacket and pants if you live in an area that often rains. Those who intend to cycle in the night, it is very important that you buy cycling apparel with reflector.
3.    Get a good bike lock to keep your bike safe. Buy a good quality and durable bike lock, avoid going for cheap locks. You wouldn’t want to risk losing your bike after having purchased one of the expensive men’s cruiser bike.
4.    To enjoy safe riding on your bike, make sure to wear cycling shoes with good grip soles that are also good for walking.
5.    When you are out cycling, there is always a chance of a puncture in the tire. Always have a tire repair kit and pump with you.

With all the proper gadgets, you are now ready to enjoy a wonderful and fun cycling outing with your family or friends.
