Product Review - Little Innoscents

~ Posted on Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at 5:50 AM ~

As a busy mum with 4 kiddos between 10 months old to 8.5 years old, I have started cutting down on doing product reviews to focus on our childcare and family life, home cooking, teaching kiddos, 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 Little Innoscents range of products.

Little Innoscents

About the company/products:

"Little Innoscents was founded in 2007, after Director Antonette Golikidis fell pregnant with her first child Alex. Antonette searched endlessly for baby products that were chemical free and found herself disappointed to find such a limited number of products, which were often difficult to find, too expensive, or offered misleading greenwash marketing techniques to persuade you to buy something that wasn’t all what it said it to be.

Then Little Innoscents was born, naturally. Antonette began making the products in her kitchen at home and spent 10 months perfecting the ingredients. She formulated an intensive soothing cream, massage lotion, massage oil, body powder, hair and body wash, vapour rub balm and organic soap. The range can also help relieve a wide range of childhood health and skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis."

I received the following products for my review. I didn't get to try out the entire range of the products though so I'm sharing those that I've tried out so far in my family.

Little Innoscents

A quick feedback on the packaging of the products - the tubes all comes sealed and the labelling info are printed on the tubes itself, so the info on the tubes is water-proof which is longer lasting compared to other products we used where the label stickers came off after the water soaked through the outer part of the tubes.

Little Innoscents

I would like to highlight the following 6 items which my kiddos and I are using so far (clockwise from top left):

  • Intensive Soothing Cream - This is a nourishing organic topical application ideal for a range of stressful skin conditions. The moment I know the Intensive Soothing Cream is REALLY GOOD STUFF is when I have tried many other creams and lotions to sooth my sudden outbursts of hives (still unsure of the cause) and only this one gave me instant relief. I don't have the urge to scratch the itch. I am relieved to have this cream on hand, really. The moment the hives started appearing around my inner thighs and below knees area, I quickly applied the cream and I totally don't have any feeling of the itch at all. The brochure stated that this cream is perfect for nappy rash and the treatment of redness and itchiness caused by eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. Totally recommend this!

  • Moisture Rich Lotion - With a gorgeous floral scent of Ylang Ylang and Lavender, this rich and moisturising lotion is ideal for dry or sensitive skin by maintaining and replenishing the skin’s much needed hydration levels and protects delicate newborn baby skin. I use this lotion on our 10-months old boy after he took his bath. I applied the lotion all over his body and his skin stays moist and baby soft! From time to time, I also applied some of this lotion onto my legs haha...

Little Innoscents

  • Paw Paw Balm - This balm is filled with nourishing beeswax, shea butter and calendula and most importantly Australian organic paw paw to heal and hydrate the skin. I love this balm and used it with extra care (precious you know!) when the soles of my feet start cracking due to dehydration and hot weather. It keeps my feet supple and heals the cracks fast.

  • Hair Fudge - The Little Innoscents Hair Fudge is very good product for me to keep my stringy hairs at bay. I love that it gave my hair a strong hold and yet doesn't have those gels frozen look at all. It is also easy to wash hair without any yucky residue left.

  • Hair & Body Wash - Cleanses deeply and refreshes from top to toe. I like that we can use it for hair and body as well. The minty smell is from the essential oils of spearmint, lavender and orange.

  • Cherry Coconut Conditioner - I used the conditioner after using the hair & body wash. The ingredients serve to soften and soothe the hair.

The cool thing about Little Innoscents products is they are formulated to suit baby’s sensitive skin but at the same time, adults can also use them, especially if they are suffering from dry, itchy or eczema skin. And it is also safe to be used on pregnant mothers! Practically the whole range of their products can be used on babies except Sun Lotion which is recommended after 6 months old and Milky White Toothpaste after 3 months old (which I have yet to try it on our 10-months old boy as he is still toothless at the moment)

I haven't got the chance to use the Sun Lotion and Winter Blues Balm, but will definitely bring them along for our coming Chiangmai holiday in November later.

In summary, a wonderful range of products that the whole family can use,

and I'm thankful that we have been given the privilege to try them out!

Best Vitamin C Serum

~ Posted on Sunday, September 3, 2017 at 6:34 PM ~

Vitamin C has a variety of benefits. Not only is it a powerful anti-oxidant that can protect your skin from free radicals, but it also possesses anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce the inflammation cascade that can be damaging to your skin. Timeless Skin Care offers a variety of all-natural skin care products that contain Vitamin C, including anti-aging serums. If you are looking for the best Vitamin C Serum for your skin, here are a few to consider:

Hyaluronic Acid +Vitamin C Serum: If you are looking for a serum that can protect and hydrate your skin, you don’t need to look further than the Hyaluronic Acid +Vitamin C Serum. While the Vitamin C fights off dangerous free radicals, Hyaluronic Acid can hold up to 1000 times its water weight to help skin remain plump and supple. If you need the hydrating benefits of hyaluronic acid but also need a good moisturizer, you can add a few drops of Timeless Argan Oil Pure to the serum. Argan oil is derived from the nut of the Argan tree and can be a powerful moisturizer for skin, while strengthening hair and nails.

20% Vitamin C+E Ferulic Acid Serum: This serum is ideal for dry skin because of its Vitamin E content. Vitamin E is a natural fat that helps promote natural oil production in the skin. While “fat” and “oil” have traditionally negative connotations, Vitamin E is a good fat that is essential for many functions in the body, and your skin’s wellbeing is dependent on a certain amount of oil production. The serum also contains Ferulic Acid that helps enhance Vitamin C’s protective effects.

Choosing the right serum for your skin can be a challenge, which is why you may want to consult your dermatologist if you are uncertain about adding another product to your beauty regimen.

Buy Genuine Motorcycle Parts And Accessories

~ Posted on Monday, August 21, 2017 at 12:04 AM ~

In the country where I live, there are many motorcycles on the road and there are also many motorcycle shops around. Motorcycle shops can be found both in big cities and in small towns in my country. In days past, we have seen motorcycles being used in advertisements and most of the times, we will see a strong and rugged man riding the bike. At that time, I was too young to have any interest in the brand of the motorbike.

In our modern day, if you want to buy a motorcycle, there are many brands and models to choose from. Even with the increasing numbers of cars on the road, sales of motorcycle is still good because not many can afford to invest in a car. In countries where there is a slowdown in economy, many have to use a cheaper mode of transport. Using a motorcycle saves on petrol consumption, free parking, free toll and cheaper maintenance. With the increasing price of petrol and the bad traffic congestion on the roads have caused many to switch to motorcycle instead of driving a car.

Some bikers and motorcycle repair shops are finding it difficult to get aftermarket replacement parts for their bikes. Many have gone online in search of the replacement parts which are no longer supplied by their local suppliers. There are a number of online websites dealing with motorcycles replacement parts and some like bikebandits.com has genuine OEM parts for motorcycles of many brands and models. All you have to do is key in the brand name e.g. Kawasaki or Honda, the model and you will know whether the parts are available.

Take for example, if your Kawasaki bike is still in good shape and the performance is still good, you would surely want to keep it in top condition. You wouldn’t want to replace its worn out parts with just any parts that you can find. You would definitely want to use the original Kawasaki OEM parts to make sure that your machine will continue to run smoothly and safely on the road.

Besides replacement parts, you can also get helmets, gear, tires and other Kawasaki accessories at the same websites. The same applies for other motorcycles brands as well. Certain websites do not charge shipping fee if your orders exceed a certain amount. To enjoy free shipping, you will need to check out on each website.
