Product Review - Four Cow Farm's Mother's All-Natural Range

~ Posted on Monday, May 8, 2017 at 12:55 AM ~

I have been cutting down on doing product reviews towards the last quarter of year 2016 to prepare for our coming 4th kiddo who was born in early November 2016 and I am now slowly resuming doing product reviews but prioritizing those that can fit into our family dynamics (especially books on parenting or educational stuff, family products, something along those genre)

However, as busy as I am with 4 kiddos, home cooking, taking care of hubby's administration site of the business and swamped up with managing my FB page and blog, I just can't say no to reviewing products that either myself and/or my family can use, what more reviewing products that are chemical-free and which are carefully created for mothers, mothers-to-be and the family, I would be mad to say no, right?!

Four Cow Farm Mothers All Natural Range

About the company/products:

"Four Cow Farm is a real farm nestled in the hills of the Blackhall Range in South-East Queensland. Today, Four Cow Farm is a 25 acre (11.25 ha) hobby farm but it was originally part of a much larger dairy farm. The Four Cow Farm range was started by a Midwife, Mum & Grandmother (with hundreds of deliveries to her credit) who wanted to make creams and balms that were as good and natural as possible for her two little grandchildren (one of whom had eczema). Using time-tested recipes and traditional ingredients, Nanna’s labour of love began as a gift to her two little ones.

Nanna’s range of simple, honest, hand-worked and time-tested recipes are made with only the very best all-natural ingredients, sourced from suppliers Nanna knows and trusts herself. They are made from Nanna’s own hand-crafted recipes, without the complex mix of unnecessary fragrances and chemicals so common today, and with absolutely no artificial additives or chemical hazards whatsoever.

Today, the whole family is involved in helping to make and share Nanna’s products with mums, dads and bubs all over the world. We hope that you and your family enjoy using our products as much as we enjoyed making them!"

I received the following products for my review: Mother’s All-Natural Daily Rich Cream Salve, Mother’s All-Natural Intensive Restorative Oil and Mother’s All-Natural Castile Hair & Body Wash. Let's check out my review for each of the products in more details okay?

Four Cow Farm Mothers All Natural Range

 

Mother’s All-Natural Daily Rich Cream Salve

The Mother’s All-Natural Daily Rich Cream Salve is a restorative blend of the finest organic oils and extracts for soothing and caring for sensitive, stressed or stretching skins. When I read this description, the first thing that came to my mind is 'I've gotta put this all over my body right awayyyyy!!' Yes, as a mother of 4 kiddos under 9 years, I am stressed and all stretched out LOL!! So anyway, I gently squeezed up a pea-sized cream onto my palm and then carefully slather it onto my legs and hands. I did so dutifully for about 2 weeks. To be honest, I don't enjoy the cream smell initially but after a while, I guess I'm used to it already.

Now how do I know whether this cream works? On the second week of applying this cream, I went for my regular body massage session and the first thing my masseur lady told me as she started massaging my legs was 'You know when you go for regular massage, it shows in your skin! I noticed your skin is firmer now!' In my mind, I was thinking, "Hey, the cream has got something to do with this too!" I love this cream, so much that I applied it to my 6 months old baby's skin whenever I noticed some dryness on his skin.


Mother’s All-Natural Intensive Restorative Oil

The Mother’s All-Natural Intensive Restorative Oil is a fortified blend of the finest restorative organic oils meant for boosting the care of sensitive, stressed or stretching skins. In other words, in mummy-speak from what I understand, after you apply the Mother’s All-Natural Daily Rich Cream Salve, you can boost it more by applying the Intensive Restorative Oil.

I don't often apply the oil though as the cream itself is doing an awesome job of refreshing and restoring my stressed dried up skin haha... FYI, the enhanced oil contains skin-moisturising benefits which enhance the retention of moisture in the skin, and help restore suppleness and elasticity.   

 
Mother’s All-Natural Castile Hair & Body Wash

Last but not least, the Mother’s All-Natural Castile Hair & Body Wash is excellent for mothers and mothers-to-be, and particularly on any skin experiencing tension, strain or stress, this special formulation is a gentle and nourishing daily all-over hair, face and body wash that’s rich, protective and moisturising. From my understanding, this means you can use this on your hair as well as your body. 

This product is gentle enough to be used on normal hair without the need for conditioners. Just wet your hair and skin thoroughly then place a small amount on a sponge or your palm, apply gently, stroking into skin and avoiding contact with eyes. Then rinse off and enjoy your smooth supple skin! The first time I applied this, I can immediately feel the oil leaving my hair after rinsing off. I tend to have oily hair after a sweaty outing and a hairwash session using the Mother’s All-Natural Castile Hair & Body Wash totally clears up the oily feel on my hair!

 

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

 Recommended!!!

To The Moms Who...

~ Posted on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at 10:33 AM ~

I saw this article and yes, I agree with it. As parents, we are judged in whatever things we do.

"To the mom who's breastfeeding: Way to go! It really is an amazing gift to give your baby, for any amount of time that you can manage! You're a good mom.

To the mom who's formula feeding: Isn't science amazing? To think there was a time when a baby with a mother who couldn't produce enough would suffer, but now? Better living through chemistry! You're a good mom.

To the cloth diapering mom: Fluffy bums are the cutest, and so friendly on the bank account. You're a good mom.

To the disposable diapering mom: Wow those things hold a lot, and it's excellent to not worry about leakage and laundry! You're a good mom.

To the mom who stays home: I can imagine it isn't easy doing what you do, but to spend those precious years with your babies must be amazing. You're a good mom.

To the mom who works: It's wonderful that you're sticking to your career, you're a positive role model for your children in so many ways, it's fantastic. You're a good mom.

To the mom who had to feed her kids from the drive thru all week because you're too worn out to cook or go grocery shopping: You're feeding your kids, and hey, I bet they aren't complaining! Sometimes sanity can indeed be found in a white bag with a big red chick on it. You're a good mom.

To the mom who gave her kids a homecooked breakfast lunch and dinner for the past week: Excellent! Good nutrition is important, and they're learning to enjoy healthy foods at an early age, a boon for the rest of their lives. You're a good mom.

To the mom with the kids who are sitting quietly and using their manners in the fancy restaurant: Kudos, it takes a lot to maintain order with children in a place where they can't run around. You're a good mom.

To the mom with the toddler having a meltdown in the cereal aisle: they always seem to pick the most embarrassing places to lose their minds don't they? We've all been through it. You're a good mom.

To the moms who judge other moms for ANY of the above?

Glass houses, friend. Glass houses."

I came across this article which I must definitely share with you guys. We all need more positive inspiring stories in our crazy world nowadays! For your convenience, I have copied the excerpts from the article here:

An anonymous woman is quickly becoming a viral hero after she paid for a plane ticket for a toddler in need. The photo of her and the tale of her generosity was posted on the LoveWhatMatters Facebook page on Wednesday.

According to the post, she was at an unspecified airport and overheard a man who was traveling with his daughter talking to the gate agent. There was a problem: he’d been under the impression the girl could fly for free, but because she had just recently turned two in fact she now needed her own ticket. An honest enough mistake, given how confusing airline regulations can be.

He didn't have one for her and was devastated. He told the agent he couldn’t afford to rebook his flight or pay the exorbitant last minute fare for his toddler. He made a few calls and a person who witnessed the scene said he was, “Hugging his daughter and grabbing his head, you could tell he was heartbroken.”

This valiant woman, who was next to him at the counter, heard this all go down, and after a short talk with him, she approached the counter again and said she wanted to buy the girl’s ticket. The gate agent asked her if she knew the ticket cost $749. She said “that’s fine,” and paid for it with her credit card.

According to the post, those around her were in awe, and the man hugged her and asked for her info so he could repay her. She replied with, "Don't worry about it." Not surprisingly, the response to the woman's amazing actions have been overwhelmingly positive.

Now if there's any justice in the world, whatever airline this is will offer this woman at least a partial refund.  Those last minute fares are unconscionably high and no one — especially not this angel — should have to pay them.
