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.

Product Review - Merry Nation

~ Posted on Wednesday, August 16, 2017 at 5:50 AM ~

As a busy mum with 4 kiddos between 9 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, 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 Merry Nation range of vegetable powders.

I received the Merry Nation's Starter Kit which contains the following products for my review:

Merry Nation

  • Organic Turmeric Powder

  •  Organic Maitake Mushroom Powder

  •  Organic Fantastic Greens Powder

  •  Organic Carrot Powder

  •  Organic Kale Powder

  • Organic Bird's Eye Chilli Powder

  • Organic Ginger Powder

  • Organic Beetroot Powder

I didn't get to try out the entire range of the starter kit though so I'm sharing those that I've tried out so far in my cooking for my family.

A quick feedback on the packaging of the products -the bottles come tightly sealed with a plastic layer on the outside, once you tear off the seal you can start using the powders! The starter kit's bottles are small and nifty, good for me to bring along in case of travelling :)  

Do you know that the vegetable powders are 100% raw? Also the vegetables are dehydrated at low heat so that more nutrients and enzymes are preserved as compared to mass produced, store bought powders dried using high heat.

Now let's continue with my feedback on the powders I get to use so far - I tried the Organic Carrot Powders and Organic Fantastic Greens Powder when I made oats for our 9 months old boy. A healthy way to introduce vegetables into his solids journey right?

Other than our littlest kiddo, I also use the vegetable powders when cooking scrambled eggs, stir-frying vegetables as well as morning egg toast for our kiddos.

Now of course the adults (my hubby and I) also get to enjoy Merry Nations starter kit vegetable powders as well! I use the Organic Bird's Eye Chilli Powder for our spicy pork dishes as well as when I made spicy stingray. The dishes are particulary extra spicy this few rounds! Yums yums!

Picture below is how I marinade the stingray with Merry Nation's Organic Turmeric Powder. I can actually taste the turmeric stronger taste this round you know! More ooomphfffhhmm!!

Lastly pictures below taken of the dishes I cooked with the vegetable powders from Merry Nation.

To sum up my review, this is a wonderful range of organic vegetable powders that my family and I have been given the privilege to try out! Thank you Merry Nation!

Product Review - Botaneco Garden Baby

~ Posted on Tuesday, August 8, 2017 at 5:05 AM ~

As a busy mum with 4 kiddos between 9 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, 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 Botaneco Garden Baby range of products.

I received the following products for my review:

  • Botaneco Garden Baby body Lotion 
  • Botaneco Garden Baby facial & Body Cream 
  • Botaneco Garden Baby head-to-toe Wash

A quick feedback on the packaging of the products - the body cream comes sealed and the lotion as well as the baby wash has this unique turn to open and lock it to prevent wasteful usage. I really appreciate this feature as my kiddos can really press out a big dollop of lotion and baby wash with their strong energetic force hahah.. I also like that the label on the baby wash is water-proof which is longer lasting compared to other products we used where its labels came off after the water soaked through the bottles.

Botaneco Garden Baby

The first thing that came to mind when I opened up the seals and tried the products - the smell... so fragrant! I used the Facial & Body Cream on our kiddos especially after they took their bath. Nice smell and keeps their skin smooth and supple.

Botaneco Garden Baby

As for the body lotion, I keep the bottle around me and used it whenever I feel the weather is dry and stuffy, I think the lotion helps to keep my kiddos' skin moistured. I even used it on my own hands hehehe... The lotion is fast-absorbing and it doesn't leave any greasy feeling after applying. And did I mentioned the nice smell it has?

Botaneco Garden Baby

As for the Head-to-Toe Body Wash, our girls are absolutely loving this! So much that I actually have to hide this bottle and put it higher so that they don't keep using it (okay, fine, fine... I'm that frugal, I want to make good things last as long as I can okay?) But then, all the hiding only to find them sneaking in and using it again the next day! You know the saying when you love something, you find ways to get to it?

In summary, a wonderful range of baby products that I have been given the privilege to try out!
