Sebamed Children's Shampoo - Review

I am a mother of twin boys. My twins are totally polls apart when it comes to their skin care or hair care concerns. Baby Arhaan was born with thick dense hair while Baby Zohaan was born with thin fine hair. I am someone who likes to use one same product for both (making my life a little bit easier). And that's when my search for a good shampoo started. While I was on to my research work, I came across many articles and studies which mentioned about the pH 5.5 balance in babies/kids’ skincare and hair care products. Frankly I never knew anything about this before.
If you are new to the concept and benefits of pH 5.5 then let me just give you some small brief here.

Baby’s skin is very much sensitive. The pH of water is 7 which are neutral. For a normal healthy skin, the pH of 5.5 is a must. All Sebamed products maintain a pH level of 5.5. Babies are born with a skin pH of 7 which gradually become 5.5 after 3 months of development. Any products with more the pH 5.5 can severely damage or irritate babies’ sensitive skin. #pH5point5 leads to soft and smooth skin, aids in skin renewal, gives glow and protects the skin from infections.

Sebamed is a German skin care brand with 50 years of experience. Sebamed products are developed and recommended by dermatologist in over 85 countries. Sebamed is the pioneer of pH 5.5 with best for healthy and glowing skin. As #Sebamedindia products are best for babies thus they can be used from day One.
  • It has pH level 5.5
  • Clinically proven formula.
  • Herbal extracts of chamomile which alleviates irritation and soothes the skin.
  • It has a Mild and soothing fragrance.
  • Tear free formula

It has been a year that I am continuously using Sebamed baby shampoo for my twins and after 2 bottles down this is what I really like about the product.

  • Though the price point is high as compared to other brands, but no other brand is maintaining pH level 5.5 so it’s totally worth it.
  • A little product goes a long way.
  • It’s a very mild cleanser which has never irritated my kid’s eyes due to its tear free formula.
  • It has worked for both my kids which had different hair concerns.
  • The effects of the shampoo are clearly noticeable. Baby Arhaan’s dry and unmanageable hair are now much softer and smoother while Baby Zohaan’s thin and fine hair has become much thicker and the shampoo has helped in hair growth as well.

I have been loving #sebamedbaby shampoo for my twins. As sebamed is a pioneer in pH 5.5 products all there are very mild and gentle. Their ingredients are baby friendly which makes it more reliable.

Cherry Crumble California : Online Kids clothing brand Review

Hi everyone. It's been a long time since I haven't blogged or reviewed anything here. But I guarantee this wait was worth it.

These days there are so many brands coming up with their clothing line for kids and toddlers. Everyone has its own USP. I was in search of a brand that manufactures stylish and comfortable kid’s apparels. That is when I was introduced to the brand Cherry Crumble California. I was so happy to see that they have a huge variety of clothes for both girls and boys.

It was very difficult for me to find good, stylish and comfortable clothes for my boys. Majority of the brands have a really good variety of clothes for girls and very few brands actually bring a good variety of styles for boy’s apparel. Cherry Crumble California has a huge variety for boy’s cloths as well.

I recently received a men’s sports coat. Its Cord blazer that is crafted with a notched collar, button closure and a two patched pockets with flaps on the front. The quality of the fabric is super soft.

My take on the Blazer
I just loved the quality of their blazer. Its buttery soft.
The color is so classy and it can easily be paired with any jeans.
The cloth doesn’t irritate the baby’s skin.
It can be worn during winters as well as on a summer evening.

My Verdict:

I just loved the blazer. The quality, the style, and the color everything is just so great. The only thing that I wish they could work on is the price point. You can consider Cherry Crumble to be a luxury clothing brand as it is a bit on the higher side as compared to other brands. But worry not there is a huge sale going on their website. So don't not forget to check it out. (Click here to visit their website)

Reuse your old Saree in 5 different ways

Hello guys. Hope everyone would be doing well. We Indians are very much used to wearing traditional saree’s. We all would be having some old traditional saree’s which our grandmother's or great grandmothers would have passed it to our moms and from our moms to us. These days old traditional saree’s are seen as unique and statement pieces. But there are times when we are so over some saree’s which we don't like to style anymore. Usually in Indian household we give such old clothes to the bartanwalis and in exchange for utensils.

Here few ways you can reuse your old saree’s and make some good statement pieces.

1. Make curtains. 
If you have sheer saree’s lying around unused make long floor length curtains from them. These days’ two layered curtains are a big trend. So you can use two different colour saree’s and make nice sheer curtains from them for your bedroom or living room. These would add a nice personal touch to your house.

2. A cape dress.
These days a cape dress is a total style statement. A long cape can be easily made with an old Saree. I have used my mom's old bhandni saree and made a long cape out of it. (See the picture for reference). Stitching a cape is very easy and one can easily make a DIY at home too.

3. Make a Long Maxi dress.
If you have an old silk saree lying around make a long floor touching dress out of it. Silk never goes out of fashion. And style it with a nice trendy dupatta.

4.  Door mat
Yes you read it right we can make a nice colorful door mats from your old saree’s.

5. Potli or tote Bags.
Making a potli bag is very easy and you can make the same from the left over cloth of the saree dress that you have made.

Read and engage on some really useful #reuse #recycle #reuse posts by 15 amazing bloggers. Thank you Heema (www.zenithbuzz.in) for introducing me.

FairFax Hair Energizer Product Review

The most communal problem we mothers face after the delivery is the massive hair loss. Yes, postpartum hair loss is real you guys. While I was pregnant I had the best and voluminous hair. But after that the situation changed. My hair started to fall excessively. I was so much worried about my excessive hair loss. I have tried numerous hair oils, anti-hair fall shampoos, hair treatments, diy hair oils and what not. But there was no visible result. Heartbroken and worried me started to search for some miracle product. That's when I came across Fairfax hair energizer.

About Fairfax

Fairfax hair energizer is 100% herbal product that lives up to its name. It contains extracts from natural herbs such as stinging nettle leaf, southern wormwood, bark of quinine, and a few others that are known to reduce hair fall and promote hair growth. It's manufactured & bottled in Switzerland.

How to use:

There are two ways to use this product

Method 1

  • Fairfax should be used after the bath and after the hair has been washed.
  • Wash the hair with a mild shampoo and pat dry it with a soft towel.
  • Take about a litre of water and add 3 to 4 drops of Fairfax to this. Stir it with and rinse your hair.
  • Pat dry your hair with a soft towel.
Note: do not pour water over your hair after this. 
  • Apply Fairfax enriched herbal water to your scalp three times a week. You will see a difference in your hair within 2 weeks (i.e. 7 applications).
  • If used carefully, one bottle of Fairfax (5ml) will last for 20+ uses or 2+ months. (depending on the frequency of the use)

Method 2

  • Put 4 drops of Fairfax in any hair oil of your choice that you normally use and apply it to your scalp.
  • Keep it for few hours or overnight for best results and wash off with a mild shampoo.

My Verdict:

I have been using this product for past 15 to 20 days now and i can see some changes in my hair. I can see visible difference in my hair fall. Still it would be too early to comment on the results of the product. But so far i am loving the results of Fairfax Hair energizer.
