Putto Secret Foam Wash

Description from the product page:
"Putto Secret Foam Wash is as unique as it can get. A baby body wash which is in liquid form while in its packaging, foams up wonderfully once pumped out. It is convenient to use and cleanses gently but effectively. Most importantly, it will never dry out baby's sensitive skin. Putto Secret Foam Wash does not contain Sulphates, Parabens nor Mineral Oils."

 The bottle is just about the right size and easy to hold. The nozzle is protected with a transparent cover which is good. My initial reaction when I squeezed some out onto my palm is: "What?! Just some bubble? Huh?!" but wait... read on... 

Putto Secret Foam Wash

To be honest I was thinking how much bubble and foam could there be since I just squeezed out a small amount but wow, to my surprise, there's a lot of foam coming out just after a few seconds. It smells good, not too overwhelming at all.

I used it for both my kids twice a day and their skin stays smooth and supple. Although this can be used as a bubble bath, I decided not to as I feel it is very precious and you have no idea how crazy my kids go whenever they have their bubble baths. They take forever to play in their bath tub so I'm reserving this foam wash solely for applying directly onto their skin and rinsing it off.

The plus point in this product is that it is baby skin friendly, and it does not contains preservatives and colouring agents. It also promotes scar relief and provides high moisturising elements. I like that it is also suitable for all skin types especially for dry and sensitive skin.

What a great product that is also safe to use on our little one's skin!

I am so intrigued when I saw the press release for this pendant! I mean, a pendant engraved with 120 'I love you' languages?! How cool is that? So here goes my review for the beautiful "I Love You 120 Languages Pendant Onyx":

Sorry for the picture quality... I tried my best to zoom in as close as I can, it's either reflecting my camera or I can't capture the super miniature words inscribed on the pendant. Now, the pendant came in a cute little jewelry box with a miniature magnifying glass which you can use to read the various 'I love you' words in all 120 languages! 

I love the shimmering sterling silver necklace and the length is just nice! The pendant itself is not heavy at all and I love seeing all the words inscribed in tiny details!

Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50

~ Posted on Wednesday, October 17, 2012 at 11:07 AM ~

I have always been wary of using suntan lotions on my face as personally speaking, I feel the lotion is greasy and sticky when I applied it on my body and I am not comfortable with putting it on my face. So when I saw the pitch to review this suntan lotion for face, I went "Oh wow! A suntan lotion for your face? That I must try!" So here goes my review for the "Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50":

I'm a full-time mummy

Description from the product page:
"The sun’s UVA rays, which penetrate the skin and cause premature aging, and UVB rays, which cause the skin to darken and burn, combine to break down the structure of your skin leaving it dull and lacking in elasticity. Over the years, sun-damage becomes more apparent in the form of deeper wrinkles around your eyes and mouth as well as uneven pigmentation, which appears as age spots.

To help prevent this, an effective sunblock is an important weapon. Banana Boat Ultra Protect FACES SPF50 is formulated for everyday lightweight and lasting wear, and enriched with botanical extracts of tamarind, cotton and stevia. Hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested, Banana Boat products are Sun-Tested, Sun-Proven® protection against the sun’s rays.

In addition, Banana Boat’s AvoTriplex® Technology combines:
* Avobenzone, a powerful absorber of UVA rays which cause long-term skin damage. UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin’s dermis and hypodermis layers to cause long-term harm to the skin.
* UVB absorbers to protect against the burning effects of the sun. Without proper protection, UVB rays penetrate the skin’s epidermis layer, causing it to burn within minutes, depending on your skin type.
* A photo-stabilizing agent to maintain longer-lasting sun protection without breaking down so easily."

Sorry for the picture quality... I took it in my bedroom and with a very curious 3.5 years old kid lurking all around me wanting to get a closer look at what's inside the packaging, I had to snap the pictures as quick as I possibly can. Look at my boy's happy face when he finally get to hold the boxes and wear the cute cap!   

Pictures below taken to show you the closer look on how the suntan lotion looks like. The whole packaging, the bottle cap which is very easy to open even with one hand and also I squeezed some of the suntan lotion out for initial try.

Initially I applied it on my hand to test whether it is greasy or sticky or not and to my surprise, it is not at all! The lotion smears right onto my skin easily and does not leave any usual strong suntan lotion smell (compared to our current brand of suntan lotion). I like that it does not leave any greasy or oily feel on the palm of my hand after I applied some onto my face.

This is one product I will definitely use again and again whenever we go out for our family outing! And I like that there is a suntan lotion specially for our face! Now, question is:

Is your face sun-protected?
