Kids winter fashion- Part 1

Slay it in this super cute @cherrycrumblecalifornia Coat.

Just when mom was looking for winter fashion for me, we received this beautiful coat from @cherrycrumblecalifornia

😻 First and formost, the feel is great. So soft and so comfortable as well. I feel so cozy wearing this coat.

😻 The colour is beautiful. Perfect for the rainy weather. I love styling fluoroscent colours during the rains.

😻 It has a proper lining on the inside, so it is soft on the skin. It isnt itchy like many others i have tried on before. Mom had to convince me to remove it before my lunch so as to avoid any spilling.

😻 The coat is perfect for this slightly changing and chilly weather. And I have already decided what to layer it on coming winters. It has a hood as well which fits pretty well. I love hooded jackets.

😻 It has 3 zipper pockets which adds on the classic look. Plus lots of space to stuff things without mommy knowing about it.

😻 Would look great on denims and trousers and leggings as well. But since I have bruised my knees in the school yesterday, i was a little reluctant to wear my jeans and so mom let me choose this dress.

😻 Thank you @cherrycrumblecalifornia For this beautiful addition to my coat and jacket collection.

😻 You all can also get your hands on many such amazing pieces. Check out their instagram page.

Nap nap mat- putting your baby to sleep made easy.

There is one thing that every mother dreams about. “Someone putting her baby to sleep while she catches up on her sleep as well”. It takes us at least half an hour to feed the baby and then another half an hour to put then to sleep and by the time We think of relaxing a bit, its wake up time for the little one. Motherhood is beautiful, but at the same time its tiring and exhausting. March 2018 I had my younger one and I don’t remember sleeping for 6 hours straight since then. How we wish if we could put the little ones to sleep in a jiffy.

This is when THE NAP NAP MAT comes to our rescue.
It can be used for newborns to kids 2 years old.

A super soft outer cover made up of Egyptian cotton for your baby to nap.

It is extremely light, can be folded easily and is travel friendly as well. It comes in a cloth bag making storage easy.

You can place it on the bed, in the crib, carry your baby in it while breast feeding, can use it for air travel as well, can also be placed in a bassinet, stroller, pram, car seat and sling.

It has 6 modes of vibration to soothe your little one. 1 to 4 progressive frequency modes and 2 heartbeat modes. The modes and vibration vary according to the age of the baby. And it has a special mode (mode 4) for expecting moms as well. Especially for moms in their 3rd trimester to relieve their back and leg pain.
The vibrations work for 15 hours straight on a single charge. It has a auto cut off mode as well, wherein the vibrations wont work when charging. Also, the mat stops vibrating after 20 minutes of continuous use. So no chance of any harm to the baby.

It maintains the good posture of the baby, is durable, PUC free, radiation free and cordless.
And if that was not all, it is waterproof as well. So cleaning it is super easy. You just need a moist cloth/ wet wipes.

Wait!!! That’s not all. USE MY SPECIAL PROMO CODE “NAPGAYATRI10” to avail a 10% discount on your purchase.

How I wish I had this during both my pregnancies . Dealing with the back pain and sleepless nights during kids sickness would have been so much better.
So, what are you waiting for, go get your very own nap nap mat now and catch up on some much needed rest and me time.

BECAUSE SLEEP IS IMPORTANT.

Dealing with the mosquito menace

It feels great to see our kids sleep in peace. But sometimes this beauty sleep is disturbed by them mosquitoes, gnats and flies. We feel that inside our homes, the kids are safe from all of them. But in reality, these little monsters are hiding away in all the corners of the house. I could see mosquito bites on my kids Hands and legs even while playing inside the house or even after waking up in the morning. A lot many times even when my daughter comes back from school, she has bites on her face and legs. Earlier I was applying the repellant only while going outdoors, but now I do so even when inside the house. We reduced our park trips due to this menace.
My search for the best mosquito repellant led me to buying products from these brands. I had been using odomos till now, but it wasn’t that effective in keeping the mosquitoes and gnats at bay. So we finally ordered our mosquito repellant patches, fabric roll on and spray from @mamaearth.in and goodnight. Today I will be reviewing them both for you.

Goodnight:

1. Fabric roll on– It contains natural oils like citronella oil and eucalyptus oil. It is to be applied as coin sized dots on the fabric on both the shoulders and legs. I have recently started using this fabric roll on my MIL’s advice. I must say it gives a fairly good protection. Though it doesn’t work for 8 hours as claimed, it gives protection for upto 5 to 6 hours. One downside of it is that it has a strong smell. So it might be troublesome and kids might dislike it. Overall if I have to rate, I would give it a 3.5/5. Will I but it again? Maybe.

2. Repellant patches- Its contents are same as the fabric roll on. The patch can be applied on the clothes, strollers and cots. When applying on the clothes, apply one each on the upper and lower body. First off, it doesn’t stick too well. My 18 month old easily removed it. It also has a strong smell. And it also doesn’t give protection for 8 hours. It works for roughly 5 hours. I would rate it 3.5/5. Will I buy it again? No. I think there are other better options.

Mamaearth:

1. Natural mosquito repellant spray– it is 100% natural and DEET free. It contains natural oils like cold pressed castor oil and soybean oil, and essential oils like citronella oil, cedar oil, rosemary oil, lemongrass oil and peppermint oil. The best part is, it is easy to apply as it is in a spray bottle form. So u need to spray it directly on to the skin and then just spread it. It has a mild smell and is not irritating for the kids. Also, it gives protection for a good 10 to 12 hours. I would definitely rate it 4.5/5 and yes I am definitely buying this again.

2. Repellant patches– its contents are same as the repellant spray. It also is 100% natural and DEET free. It claims to protect from even dengue, malaria and chikungunya. It can be pasted on to the cot, pram, school bag and clothes. And it is also waterproof. So not to worry even during rains. This also gives around 10 to 12 hours of protection. The stick is pretty good. The kids will require an effort to remove it, so that’s a plus point. I would rate it a 4.5/5 and would definitely but them again.
So in a gist, I am liking all the above products except the good night repellant patches. I got them on amazon.in and nykaa.

P.S. THATS A NON WORKING PHONE IN HIS HAND, HE WONT LET GO OFF..

Stay tuned for more such reviews.

Tea tree & charcoal mask by Juicy Chemistry

Ingredients: Oatmeal, Organic rice flour, Prunus dulcis(Almond meal), Juglans regia(Walnut), Ocimum basilicum(Basil), Rosa(Rose), Lavandula(Lavender), Mentha(Peppermint), Fuller’s earth, Activated carbon, Mentha piperita(Peppermint essential oil), Piper nigrum(Black pepper essential oil), Citrus bergamia(Bergamot essential oil), Melaleuca alternifolia(Tea tree essential oil), Juniperus communis(Juniper berry essential oil).

If you are tired of those pimples and blackheads then you should definitely try out this mask. The charcoal present in it helps to remove the muck from your pores leaving them clean and unclogged, thus lesser blackheads. The various essential oils present like tea tree oil, juniper berry oil and peppermint oil act as an anti septic and improve circulation and so help in controlling the acne. Ingredients like almonds and walnuts act as an exfoliator and thus helps clean your skin. Fuller’s earth also helps remove excess oil and dirt from skin thus controlling acne and giving your skin a nice radiance and improved complexion. It comes in a powder form. Hence mix the required amount with water or milk and then apply over your face. Leave and let it dry for around 15 mins and then wash off. Advised use is once a week.

Tip: mixing with milk gives a smoother paste hence easy to spread or apply. Also scrub off while washing it. Will give better results.

Review: For me, this mask definitely helped in controlling the acne especially during my chums, when my breakouts are the most. But it didnt do much for my blackheads. Like after the first application i could see a little less blackheads but after that no change. So overall a good product for controlling acne but not a great solution for blackheads. Will i purchase it again? Uhh..maybe not. I wont use it just for acne control. I have other products for that.

Disclaimer- this is my personal opinion guys. Just because it didn’t do that well for me doesn’t mean it won’t work for you.

If you like what i write then please show some love.

Till then

Bbye

Hair care for that beautiful mane

Who doesnt like to have a beautiful mane. Those pretty curls, beachy waves, straightened or just soft out of the bed hair. Today i will be sharing with you guys my experience with these three hair products that i have been using for quite sometime now. They have been working very well with my hair. And i have a oily scalp and dry lengths kinda hair. So lets get going….

IMG20180426122750

  1. BED HEAD urban anti+dotes recovery conditioner: I got this from the lakme salon as suggested by my hair dresser. It is perfect for dry and damaged tresses. It gives you the apt conditioning as needed. They have a wide range of these conditioners according to the damage level of your hair. This one that i got is damage level 2. Its ingredients are- water, cetearyl alcohol, dimethicone, stearamidopropyl dimethylamine, fragrance, behentrimonium chloride, lactic acid, dipropylene glycol, amodimethicone, potassium chloride, disodium EDTA, DMDM hydantoin, cetrimonium chloride, PEG-7propylheptyl ether, phenoxyethanol, magnesium nitrate, methylchloroisothiazolinone, magnesium chloride, methylisothiazolinone, benzyl benzoate, geraniol, limonene, linalool, blue 1(Cl 42090), yellow 6(Cl 15985). It literally took me 5 minutes to write all of these. It provides great hydration for moisture deprived hair. Gets your stressed out tresses back in action and on the road to recovery. I use this as my daily conditioner and i am very happy with the results. My hair feel smoother and behave themselves. The TURBO HYDRATION molecules present in this boost softness and give this beautiful shine to your hair. The only downside i feel is that it is available only in the lakme salons and not in the market or even online. Otherwise a big yess to this conditioner. Trust me when i say this i havent use any other conditioner on a daily basis since i have got this. So go find a lakme salon near you and grab it!!!
  2. ARGAN HAIR MASK by MAMA EARTH: I am in total awe of this product. I dont have enough words to describe the good it has done for me. I have been facing tremendous hair fall since the past 3 to 4 months. I was so worried. The hair fall was so much that my scalpm was actually visible on the crown area. I use to dread washing or combing my hair as i was losing quite a bunch of hair while doing so. But then one of my friends recommended me this product and God bless her for that. My hair fall has reduced ever since the 2nd use. MY tresses feel more soft and have a really nice bounce to it.This guy here helps reduce hair fall, repairs damaged hair and cleanses and soothes the scalp. Ingredients: purified water, brassica alcohol, brassicamidopropyl dimethylamine, caprylic/ capric triglyceride, hydrolysed collagen, sodium hyaluronate, milk protein, curd extract, argan oil, rosemary oil, cedarwood oil, tea tree oil, sodium citrate & potassium sorbate. It is Pthalates free, mineral oil free, paraben free and SLS free. Wow so much of goodness in one little tub. Specially suitable for post partum hair loss. It has good hydrating and restorative properties. For best results use twice a week. It can be used as a leave in or rinse off conditioner. Apply a generous amount to towel dried clean shampooed damp hair. Using your fingers distribute it evenly throughout beginning at scalp to hair ends. Leave for 5 to 15 minutes and then rinse. And yes i founf the best results when i let the product sit for actually 10 minutes or more. I got mine on Nykaa but it is available on amazon as well. So what are you mommas waiting for. THe best solution for post baby hair loss is here. GO AND GET IT!!!!
  3. STREAX PRO HAIR SERUM VITA GLOSS: Ingredients: cyclopentasiloxane, dimethiconol, light liquid paraffin, octyl methoxy cinnamate, iso propyl myristate, parfum, vitamin E and almond oil. It helps to keep the hair moisturized, shiny and frizz free. Vitamin E and almond oil helps to smoothen rough and damaged hair. And overall improves hair manageability with regular use. It also helps protect the hair from UV damage. I have dry hair along the lengths and this has given me beautiful results in controlling the frizz. It gives results from the very first use. It comes in a pump bottle so its very convenient to use. I need 2 to 3 pumps of the product and i am done for theday. Its effects last for 2 days straight. It is priced at 195 rs for a 100 ml bottle. I got mine on Nykaa but it is available on other shopping sites as well. A big thumbs up from my side for this product. Go get yours soon!!!!

Rose, apricot & walnut herbal exfoliating facial scrub by KHADI NATURAL

https://linktr.ee/gayadesh

First things first, it smells great. You will smell more of apricot than the rose and walnut. It has a fairly smooth texture and not too rough. So it feels great on the skin. I have been using this scrub thrice a week in the morning skincare routine and so my review is based on that. I have a combination type of skin, more towards the oily side. However, it is suitable to all skin types.

IMG20180326110158

Its key ingredients are papaya extract, rose water, apricot and walnut shell, vitamin, almond oil, olive oil, butyrospermum parkii (shea butter), Theobroma cacao (coca butter), triticum vulgare (wheatgerm) oil, jojoba oil, aloevera and glycerine. Phew… that’s too many names!!

It claims to remove impurities, polish the skin, protects the skin moisture balance, removes dead skin and thus unclogs your pores. Wow bulls eye!!! It’s like all that an oily skin person would wish for. So, now time for the review…

Let me tell you guys, I am in complete love with this scrub!!!! Yes, its just amazing. Every time I used it and by this, I mean from the very first wash, my skin felt so clean. Like all that dirt never existed. It is one of the best things I have ever used to wake my skin up. It also does a good job in polishing your skin and making it glow. It is very efficient in exfoliating and removing the dead skin. Oh, and all this with maintaining the skin moisture. Your skin will never feel dried out after use. Its too good to be true.

How to use it? Well, first splash some water on that beautiful face. Then pat it dry. Take the desired amount of product and scrub it in circular motions using your fingertips all over your face. And yes avoid around the eye area. Scrub for a good 5 minutes and then wash it off. Follow it up with your toner and daily moisturiser. And you are all sorted!

It is priced at 200 rs for 50 gms. I think it is quite economical as this tub lasted me for more than a month. So, a big yes from my side to this wonderful product. Girls please please please go and try it out and you will not be disappointed.

And yeah, I got mine from Nykaa, but I think it is available on amazon.in as well.

Oh! And if you like what’s here then do show me some love and do come back for more reviews!!!!

Loadsa love people

Bbye!!!!!!!!!!!!
