Lactacyd Baby: Gives the Skin What It Deserves and More

"What's meant to be will always a find a way."
- Trisha Yearwood

This happened to me a few months ago when I won another giveaway through Petite Momma's World blog despite having no winner's luck and the prize was Lactacyd's latest product line, Lactacyd Baby- 2 in 1 Moisturizing Cleanser and Liquid Powder.

Baby Lactacyd, Lactacyd, liquid powder, baby wash, baby products, baby bath, cleanser, powder, baby, hypoallergenic

Lactacyd is a known brand of clinically-proven safe, hypoallergenic, and mild feminine wash and cleanser that our family trusts for years. Never in my experience that both have caused irritations on me and my kids. That's why upon receiving my Lactacyd Baby prize, I immediately let Bunso use both and of course, shared one baby wash to my nephew and liquid powder to my best friend's daughter who has a recurring problem of suffering from rashes during summer or hot weather.

As expected, both did an amazing job in keeping our kids skin very clean, moisturized, supple, smelling fresh, and free from irritations. What made me really, really happy was Kylee, my best friend's daughter finally found the right product that could keep herself from getting those stubborn rashes. She didn't have back breakouts, experience itchiness especially upon bedtime that caused her to have sleepless nights, and feel sticky and uneasy unlike when she was using an ordinary baby powder that could only soothe her irritations temporarily. My best friend was so thankful that I let her daughter try Lactacyd Baby Liquid Powder that served as the best solution to their problem for years. The hydrating, moisturizing, and protecting properties of this dust-free powder did a good job! That made me feel so blessed and purposeful.

Lactacyd Baby is available in leading supermarkets and drugstores nationwide at very reasonable price. 2 in 1 Moisturizing Cleanser, which can be used with or without water, and Liquid Powder come in big and travel sizes, perfect to bring or use anytime, anywhere. I highly recommend both. They give the skin what it deserves and more!

#PakNaPak na Healthy Recipes by Uni-Pak Mackerel in Natural Oil + Giveaway (July 2017)

Most kids nowadays are picky eaters and my sons are no exception. There are days when our menu just keeps on rotating over and over and that includes Fried Chicken and Fish and sandwiches that are so easy to prepare. Paps and I do our very best to be creative in preparing our meals to encourage our kids to eat more healthy food choices but sometimes we are too tired and busy to sustain our habit. Nevertheless, we still do our best to extend our effort.

It is obvious that food preparation takes time and it is our duty as parents to do it properly no matter how very busy and exhausted we are. Hindi basta nakasanayan ay the best na.

Just recently, a friend from Uni-Pak sent me a gift bag with cans of Mackerel in Natural Oil and a desk calendar with recipes on it just in time when we were thinking of other interesting and healthy quick and easy meals to cook. I really felt happy and relieved because Uni-Pak Mackerel in Natural Oil could give us hearty meals in no time.

Why is Uni-Pak Mackerel in Natural Oil healthy and safe? An oily fish such as mackerel is known to help fight cardiovascular disease, dementia, loss of vision, and prostrate cancer. It's one of the best sources of protein, selenium, vitamins B and D, and omega-3 fatty acids--- vitamins, minerals, and fat that are necessary for good health. Uni-Pak is a flagship brand of SLORD Development Corporation, the company that specializes in toll-packing quality canned goods that is trusted by domestic and international companies since 1985. 

Moving on, here are two of the great-tasting and healthy dishes that I cooked using Uni-Pak Mackerel in Natural Oil:

My Daily Basic Facial Routine to Keep Me Pimple Free

In the height of summer heat, unlike all summers in previous years, I started having pimples or breakouts. All the facial products that I use regularly caused further irritations. For the type of person who doesn't easily experience skin problems, what happened last summer made me realize that being comfortable with the products that I use for months and years isn't inevitable.

I still used those products hoping that having pimples would be temporary but I was wrong. They got worse. Then I remembered that I used feminine wash to cleanse my face and body when I forgot to bring my facial wash and soap during one of our out-of-town trips. The fresh and clean feeling that it gave me flashed back. Then immediately I tried using it again and I was so happy that the itchiness on my face was gone instantly. The zits tamed down. I didn't use any toner or moisturizer for three days after cleansing because I was afraid that the irritations might come back.

Betadine Fresh Bliss Daily Feminine Wash is my dependable cleanser down there for almost a year because I haven't felt any itchiness at all. I am also confident that it cleanses my private part and face mildly and deeply due to the presence of antibacterial properties that came from natural sources. It's delicately formulated for daily gentle cleansing. What makes it more safe is it's paraben-free and made with anti-itch avena oats that helps soothe and prevent itching and gentle defense lactic acid to protect my intimate area and face from unpleasant odor and of course, from bacteria and fungi. It has two variants and I use them alternately, Lavander Dreams and Pink Paradise.

But then again, my skin type is a combination of oily and dry. I felt that there were patches of very dry skin on my face that needed to be addressed. I knew for a fact that even if there were oily areas or even if the entire face was oily, moisturizer should be part of the daily skin routine and choosing the right product fit for my skin type should be considered. When I went to the supermarket, I purchased Celeteque Hydration Facial Moisturizer hoping that it would work for me. I was fortunate it did!

Celeteque Hydation Facial Moisturizer is unscented, water-based, non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, oil-free, and clinically-proven mild and safe. It doesn't make my skin oily and it can be used even during on humid or hot days. It is perfect for my combination skin type. Like using my trusted feminine wash, I haven't experienced any breakouts  while using it. It's a good primer for make-up too. My face didn't feel sticky or heavy while using this. 

I had no problem with the face powder that I use whenever I would go out. The no presence of SPF of Celeteque Facial Moisturizer wasn't a problem too because Maybelline Clear Smooth All In One Powder had SPF32. The problem was despite Maybelline's excellent coverage function, I wanted a reliable product that would have higher SPF and easy to apply. Then Belo SunExpert Tinted Sunscreen was introduced to me by a blogger friend and I started loving it to bits. Why? Because it was easy to apply, only a small amount could cover the entire face, it could adapt to any skin tone giving an even finish without caking, it strengthens skin's premature aging, and most of all has SPF50 and PA++++ to ensure broad spectrum protection against harmful UV rays. Using only this after moisturizing could be enough. The concealing effect and flawless finish, comparable to using BB or CC cream, could last for hours despite getting very sweaty.

This three products are my reliable partners to maintain my daily facial routine in no time without having pimples. They won't break a tight budget because you just need small amounts for every use. They are economical, safe, and functional. What more can I ask for?
