Product Review - Samsung Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner

~ Posted on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 at 12:07 AM ~

As a busy mum with 4 kiddos between 7 months old to 8 years old, I have started to really cut 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)

About the product:

"Samsung Malaysia Electronics recently introduced their newest innovation, the Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner. Malaysians can now say goodbye to physically removing tangled hair stands and dust from their cleaning tools with their hands! The Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner is a bag-less cleaner, set to elevate and optimize your household cleaning experience to a fuss-free one.

Samsung’s latest vacuum cleaner is equipped with the brand’s first CycloneForceTM with Anti-Tangle Turbine which blows hair strands, dust and crumbs out of the edge of the turbine fan. This ensures that the turbine fan rotates continuously to provide consistent suction power, and prevents the turbine grille from clogging, saving time on removing entangled hairs in the vacuum with your hands when cleaning.

Powered by a powerful motor with an innovative pick-up brush that adheres to floors for even pressure spread, the Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner has extreme suction power which quickly and thoroughly sucks up dust, hair and dirt without clogging on various floor surfaces. The new vacuum cleaner also comes with an Anti-Tangle tool which is designed to have two separate airflows for the dust and hair inlet, and the air flow inlet. Thus, preventing hair tangles on the brush bar and shaft of the turbine fan.

For simple and convenient maintenance, the vacuum cleaner comes with an Easy Dustbin. With just the push of a button, you can easily detach the dustbin and empty the contents into a trash can. Additionally, the Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner’s durable sponge type foam filter captures more dust and can be easily washed and cleaned by simply rinsing it to prevent clogging and maintain its suction power. This latest Samsung innovation also comes complete with a 2-year manufacturer warranty for consumers to have a peace of mind."

What a godsend awesome timing to receive the email invitation to review the Samsung Anti-Tangle Turbine Vacuum Cleaner as I was excited with the prospect of fully utilizing it as my hubby's company was in the midst to shift to a bigger office unit.

The parts are easy to assemble even for a newbie like me (haha, seriously!). I did a quick browse through the user manuals on how to assemble and operate the vacuum cleaner. Easy and simple to understand instructions with proper pictorial guides and info is available. I like the built-in control buttons on the remote-control handle as they are within easy reach, which allows me to quickly turn the machine on and off and select the optimum suction power while continuing with my cleaning.

One of the annoying postpartum experiences for all mothers has got to be the hair loss which generally occurs around the third to fifth month post-birth. Just in case you are not aware, our youngest kiddo is 7 months old and I'm still losing hair although they are slowly getting lesser nowadays. So, I'm really impressed that the vacuum cleaner comes with the Anti-Tangle Tool which will not get clogged-up by hairs and/or pet hairs as the dirt goes directly into the dustbin. So, it ends up maintaining the optimum pick-up and cleaning performance and there's no wasting time to remove tangled hair by hand!

Another awesome feature of the vacuum cleaner is its 3-in-1 accessory pack which offers a choice of accessories to suit different cleaning needs (dusting tool, upholstery tool and crevice tool).

I like that the vacuum cleaner handle can be extended easily.

As for the Auto Cord Rewinder which can go up to 7m long, you just need to press a button to rewind it back to its docking port.

Now let's get to the yucky-eww-whoaaaa part of this review hahah... I'm bit hesitant to post the before pictures but it doesn't make sense to show awesome clean results without grossing you guys with the before conditions, right?

Let's start with what I thought was the cleanest part of our house - gulp... the STUDY ROOM. Reason being, this room has the most minimal number of toys, only 1 entry place which is well covered up with top to floor length curtains as a partitioning purpose, no windows (hence no dust blowing into the room). We had an Ikea rug on the floor as sometimes our kiddos like to sit on the floor to read books and play their small number of toys while I do some homework revision with our oldest kiddo and also help out with administrative works during month-end especially.

I happily turned on the vacuum cleaner and just focus on the rug area. I think I took about 5 minutes to vacuum the rug surface and was kinda grossed out when I see the dirt in the canister. And to think I actually vacuumed the study room a day before! I have no idea where all the dirt comes from but with the 2100W force to suck up the dirt, I'm really glad that we have the chance to review this vacuum cleaner! Goes to show that just because you don't see the dust doesn't mean that it's all clean!

I'm happy that the vacuum cleaner has an easy dustbin which is simple to remove and empty out. What I did to quickly detach it was just a push of a button, twist open the cover (left or right direction to lock or unlock), then tip the contents into the trashcan and then easily slide the dustbin back.

At this point, I'm actually dreading on the outcome of what might be sucked up from our BEDROOM. But review must continue, right? So here goes, the bedroom vacuum cleaning results. To be honest, I quickly did a quick vacuuming with our current vacuum cleaner to minimise my fright and yet... oh boy... look at those dirt and hair! Even though I have cut my hair to very very short (ear level) yet there is still hair being sucked up!

Final test would definitely be our new office premise. We shifted to a 1400sq unit and it was previously unoccupied for about half year. The premise was however quite tidy so we hold off the vacuuming until we have installed a cassette air-conditioning unit (quite some drilling work done on the ceiling and wall) as well as moved in some new office tables and chairs. More dirt to suck out hahaha!

Pictures below were taken - to show before and after vacuuming process. The carpet floor looks brand new, really! I am so happy!

To sum up our review, we really love this vacuum cleaner!

Thank you Samsung for this opportunity to try out your awesome machine!

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."
