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!

Our Family Loves Belo Baby

Time flies! It's been almost a year since I've written my thoughts here in detail about the Belo Baby product line. When it comes to loyalty, I can swear on Belo Baby when it comes to taking care of my family's skin. We are using it for exactly 10 months and we are happy with what it does.



When it comes to quality and safety, we can never go wrong with Belo Baby that guarantees to have 100% natural and 0% harmful ingredients. It's "all natural" and crafted with care for the most delicate skin, for the most meticulous moms, and for the whole family as well. 

We feel safe whenever we use Belo Baby because it leaves out some harmful ingredients present in other brands and is composed of these main ingredients:

Cocoa Butter, an ingredient that contains antioxidant qualities that protect skin from the outside. It keeps the skin healthy by strengthening and deeply moisturizing it. With its anti-inflammatory properties, it also relieves common skin irritations like rashes.

Shea Butter, a known super food for the skin, as well as the hair. It heals, protects, nourishes, and moisturizes skin from damage and dryness. Because it is natural, gentle, and soft, it is suitable for all skin types especially the delicate and sensitive skin of babies. It naturally heals common skin conditions of babies like eczema and diaper rash.

Sweet Almond Oil, has the ability to lock moisture into the skin. It is also a good exfoliator to help remove dead skin cells and stimulate the development of healthier skin. It is generally safe for all skin types, including delicate baby skin.

Belo Baby provides a safer alternative unlike other baby products. Belo has taken meticulous care in choosing not only which ingredients to put in, but which to leave out.

Once more, I would like to stress out the things that our family loves about the following Belo Baby products:

Bar Soap

(Php79.75)

- white in color so it shows that it's pure and no artificial coloring

- easy to grip and doesn't slip even when being held by kids

- lathers just right

- mild-scented; smells great and the scent stays on skin for hours

- makes skin supple, soft, and smooth without any irritations





Hair and Body Wash

(Php219.75)

- white in color so it shows that it's pure and no artificial coloring

- makes hair and skin smell really, really good and the sweet powder scent lingers for hours

- makes hair and skin soft and smooth without irritations

- has creamy consistency that doesn't lather too much because of the absence of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), a cleansing and foaming agent used in soaps, washes, and shampoos that can cause irritations when being used often and high concentrations, but still removes dirt

- has pump-type container that can be locked and unlocked easily




Face and Body Lotion

(Php224.75)

- smells so good on skin and the scent stays longer
- makes skin from head to toe supple, moisturized, soft, and smooth without greasy after-feel; even a seldom lotion user like I do due to experiencing greasiness can be motivated to use it regularly


Among these three products that we truly love, Belo Baby Face and Body Lotion is our most favorite. I don't usually hoard, but see I have three on hand because our family can never let the day pass without using this.




My sons use this after every bath to keep their skin moisturized. Kuya, who is in his tween years, still likes the way it touches his skin. He can smell like a baby and it doesn't bother him anyway. 



We have this massage ritual with Bunso at bedtime to address his sensory overload issues due to Mild Autism. Using Belo Baby Face and Body Lotion in his body massage makes him feel relaxed leading to uninterrupted sleep.


It's only during our kid's hospitalization that we have a chance to have a #staycation. Maybe you are wondering why I sound so positive about it. Yes, it is emotionally, physically, and financially draining but everytime it happens I do my best to look at it on a different perspective. . . Everytime we stay in the hospital, I become at peace with my faith in God. As the saying goes, PRAY MORE WHEN IT'S DIFFICULT TO #PRAY. I realize that I can do it. I am thankful because I have time to #REFLECT and realize that I am so blessed despite not being rich in material possessions. I have loving family and friends. . . When I told Kuya over the phone that Bunso would be admitted, he was crying and worried about his brother. I told him that it would be fine and he would be taken care of. The following day, Hubby brought the items in the photo and said that Kuya prepared them for his baby bro--- @belobabylove Lotion for his massage, his favorite books, new #HotWheels car. He even made a #Qixels doll to make Bunso happy. . . I was so nervous to be alone in taking care of Bunso because he was hyperactive during his previous hospitalization. I am so grateful to his therapists and teachers because now he is more matured and can easily follow directions. He stays in bed knowing that he has to rest and take care of his IV site. We just cuddle, read books, and play his favorite puzzles. His nurses and doctors are very caring and supportive too. It's evident that Bunso's recovery is quick. . . It's challenging when my kids get sick but it makes our family stronger and grateful. I know that it shall pass. . #richwellprime #allaroundpinaymama #aapmmusings #momblogger #autismmom #keepthefaith #lifelessons #strength #hope #love #faith #autism #mommybloggersphilippines
A post shared by SJ Valdez (@allaroundpinaymama) on

A day isn't complete without using this lotion. In my case, I use it as my daily face and body moisturizer especially when I just stay at home, I have a few favorite facial and body lotions that I use alternately but currently, this is my favorite because I never have a greasy after-feel now that the weather is so hot. I use it on my face together with Belo Tinted Sunscreen and I have observed that it gives my make-up a flawless dewy finish. No wonder that it was a recipient of Sample Room Awards 2016.


We really, really love Belo Baby. As I've mentioned on my review last year, it exceeds my expectations and is consistent in giving best results. The packaging is very attractive, functional, and durable. It has superb quality and clinically proven all natural, gentle, and safe for everybody and reasonably priced too. It's economical because the product goes a long way and only a small amount is needed for every use. I've heard good feedback from my friends, loved-ones, and even strangers that can attest how highly recommended it is for the entire family. Babies and adults can have healthy skin and smell fresh and pure all day!

Now, I would like to take this opportunity to greet Belo Baby a "Happy First Anniversary"! #BeloBabyTurnsONE! Yay! Our family wishes you more success and fruitful years of developing more all natural products for us to enjoy! Thank you for taking good care of our family's skin naturally.

A day shall not pass without reading and joining the conversations because there is so much to learn from other parents about anything about parenting! Believe me, it’s worth joining.



I believe that as parents, we don’t have the monopoly of knowledge. Sometimes we need someone to ask about certain issues such as raising children, certain home remedies for insect bites, etc., and best deals and hacks, and a lot more. ParentTown is I believe one of the best community to run to because there we can ask any parent and get answers quickly based on their own experiences that work for them and may work for us and our families too. We can also answer some questions to help other parents. The exchanging of ideas and insights is tremendous and what makes it amazing is that parents would do anything for the sake of their kids and they are so generous to share what they know to help other parents as well. In short, in ParentTown we can get quality answers. I’ve tried and tested it and it’s truly amazing.

Isn’t obvious that I really, really love ParentTown? Before I go further, this is how it works for you to understand fully.

1. You may join ParentTown by downloading the app for free through App Store or Google Play. If you have both Facebook and Google+ accounts you may continue using any of these and rest assured that ParentTown is not going to post on your social media sites.



2. You may follow all topics that interest you.



3. You can easily manage your profile based on your preferences.



4. Start browsing the conversations or ask questions and get quick answers from parents. You may look for other topics through the Search Icon.


5. You can also join the conversations by answering parents' questions, liking or sharing them, or  simply upvoting your favorite answers.



6. You can watch informative videos and get notified if someone upvotes your answers or questions, added you as a friend, etc.



7. You are free to share photos too.



ParentTown is so easy to navigate. Even non-techie parents can use it easily. It celebrates the joys and pains of parenting and assuring parents that there is always a community who supports them all the way. This amazing app is truly a blessing.

Hanns Insect Trap, a Safe Way to Eliminate Mosquitoes

Finally, there's a safe and effective way to deal with dengue mosquitoes!
Here in the tropics, the rainy season is also the season for Dengue, a potentially deadly, yet all too common mosquito borne disease.  Last year there were over 200,000 cases of Dengue fever reported in the Philippines, and almost 600 were fatalities.  What is alarming is that this was way up from the 121,000 reported instances in 2014.  More alarming still is that just this year, the DOH has reported 70,000 Dengue cases from January to July, the supposed lean Dengue months, this is 19% more than the same period last year.   It is now more imperative than ever that measures be taken to curb Dengue, and the best way to do that is to control the numbers of Dengue Mosquitoes.
In the Philippines, nobody is safe form Dengue, it cuts across all socio-economic barriers.  Anyone can be infected, and anyone can die from it.  In fact Dengue statistics in the Philippines are based only on people who seek treatment at hospitals or clinics.  Because the initial symptoms of Dengue are the same as more benign illnesses such as the flu, many Dengue cases go unreported, especially since instances of the flu also rise at the onset of the rainy season.  Dengue is all too often detected too late, which is part of the reason why it is so potentially deadly.     
The problem with products that kill or repel mosquitoes is that there is always a catch.  There are sufficient studies to show that most chemical based products can be quite harmful if used too long.  Spray products do kill mosquitoes, but there is a reason even their manufacturers advise people not to enter a freshly sprayed room for some time.  Fume based products such as katol (mosquito coils) and vape mats emit toxins and are singled out by the website babycenter.in as particularly harmful to infants but also to adults. 
Electric bug zappers are quite noisy and can be quite disruptive at night; and finally lotions are effective, but not affordable or convenient enough to apply daily.  This is why the Hanns Insect Trap is the best alternative for anyone but especially for mothers who want to keep mosquitoes away from their kids, but who don’t like the adverse effects of other mosquito control methods. 

Like a bug zapper, the Hanns Insect Trap uses a UV light to attract insects, so like the bug zapper, it is fume and toxin free.  However, while bug zappers can be quite noisy and even startling every time a bug is zapped, the Hanns Insect Trap deals with mosquitoes quietly by sucking them into a cage out of which they can’t escape, and that they ultimately die in.  They are also extremely simple to deploy, you just plug them in and turn them on.  With prolonged use, Hanns Insect Traps can get even mosquito infested areas under control.  Hanns Insect Traps are available in Handyman, SnR,  True Value, and other leading retailers.

Fern-C Kidz: Keeping Healthy and Happy Kids

It’s every mother’s dream to see their children succeed in life. Although they’re still in an age when dolls and action figures seem exciting, all mothers really want is to keep their kids healthy and see them growing up happy and strong.  

But how will they keep their children in shape to enjoy childhood to the fullest? Here are three helpful tips for mommies who want their kids to remain bright-eyed and upbeat.

 
Tip 1: Family Bonding is important for child development. 
 
Children need to know that their parents will always be there for them. So, make sure they are given adequate time and attention daily. Even daily activities like eating meals together and talking over the phone may help assure a child of their presence and support.  As a result, they are more likely to grow up to be well adjusted, able-minded and upstanding individuals.


Tip 2: Teach your child the value of eating healthy.
 
Recent studies show that childhood obesity is one of the more prominent issues facing the youth today. Hence, it is important that moms impart healthy eating habits in kids as early as possible by introducing nutritious food, particularly vegetables and fruits, into their kids’ regular diets at a young age.
  
This is much easier said than done however, especially with the popularity of so many sugar loaded and artificially manufactured snacks and beverages. In the long run, just remember that your constant effort to pass on good eating habits will all be worthwhile when you see your kids not easily getting sick and growing up stronger and more energetic.


Tip 3: Boost your child’s immunity with Vitamin C.


Every Mom knows that she can’t always be there to protect her children from sickness, so strengthen their immunity and resistance with FERN-C kidz Sodium Ascorbate Vitamin C supplement.   

Moms may not know this, but Sodium Ascorbate is actually the better Vitamin C form as it is easier absorbed by the body, thereby allowing kids to reap the benefits of Vitamin C quicker. Moreover, FERN-C kidz does not only give your kids the benefits of Vitamin C. It also contains Zinc to further strengthen their bodies against illness. This combination is ideal for keeping your children safe and protected from infectious diseases.  

FERN-C kidz was created and manufactured by the makers of FERN-C, the number one Sodium Ascorbate Vitamin C brand in the Philippines. As a product of FERN Incorporated and having the Quali-C seal, you are assured of its quality and efficacy. Plus, your children are sure to love the delicious orange flavor of FERN-C kidz
Ensure your children are always healthy, happy and active with Fern-C kidz; because with FERN-C kidz, your children will always be “resistensaya, lusog-saya!”   

FERN-C kidz is now available in leading drugstores and supermarkets nationwide at affordable prices of Php62.00 per 60 mL bottle and Php 119.00 per 120 mL bottle.

Review: Belo Baby

When we hear the name "Belo", the word "beauty" is going to pop in our head and that's for sure.

I was one of the millions of people who were very, very happy when Belo Essentials and Belo SunExpert  were launched in the market. In those occasions, Belo was able to reach the masses and broke the notion that Belo was only for the rich and famous.

I'm a huge user of  Belo SunExpert SPF50 Transparent Mist. I also start loving Belo Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Acid Whitening Soap and in the process of trying more Belo products in the days to come.

What makes me more glad is that finally, Intelligent Skin Care, Inc. (Belo) has launched Belo Baby, a product line that is crafted with care for our babies and the whole family.

Last week, I was so blessed to be one the first individuals to try  it.



I took some time to read more about Belo Baby from its website before trying and testing the products. Then I learned the following:

Belo Baby guarantees that  it is "all natural" and has 100% certified natural ingredients and 0% harmful chemicals. 


It is clinically proven gentle on the skin for everyday use. Each ingredient was meticulously selected to ensure that it’s natural, safe, and gentle for our babies and the whole family. 





The following are its main ingredients:

Cocoa Butter, an ingredient that contains antioxidant qualities that protect skin from the outside. It keeps the skin healthy by strengthening and deeply moisturizing it. With its anti-inflammatory properties, it also relieves common skin irritations like rashes.

Shea Butter, a known super food for the skin, as well as the hair. It heals, protects, nourishes, and moisturizes skin from damage and dryness. Because it is natural, gentle, and soft, it is suitable for all skin types especially the delicate and sensitive skin of babies. It naturally heals common skin conditions of babies like eczema and diaper rash.

Sweet Almond Oil, has the ability to lock moisture into the skin. It is also a good exfoliator to help remove dead skin cells and stimulate the development of healthier skin. It is generally safe for all skin types, including delicate baby skin.

Belo Baby provides a safer alternative unlike other baby products. Belo has taken meticulous care in choosing not only which ingredients to put in, but which to leave out.

Belo LEAVES OUT the following ingredients:
 
Now that we know the brand details, let me present to you the complete Belo Baby line:

Cool Drizzle- a classic scent that leaves skin feeling fresh

One morning, as the kids and I rode a jeepney, I caught a young woman sniffing towards our direction. I sat beside her and looked at her eyes. I knew for a fact that she wanted to ask me something. Then she kept on smelling my nape as we travel. . . I just ignored her gesture. When we were almost near our destination, I took out my #BeloBaby Cool Drizzle Cologne and put some on myself and my kids. I looked at the young woman again. She was smiling while looking at the cologne bottle. I knew right on that moment that I answered the question on top of her head. . . More kwento about my memorable experiences regarding @belobabylove #babycolognes and #babyproducts on my blog soon! . . #allaroundpinaymama #allaroundpinaymamarecommends #aapmtipidfinds #belobaby #safe #natural #pure #citrusy #classic #mommybloggersphilippines #certifiedbloggers #bloggersngpinas #momswhoblogph #asianblogger #pinayblogger

Happy Tickle- a floral scent that blooms throughout the day




In my opinion...

Belo Baby exceeds my expectations. The packaging is very attractive, functional, and durable. It has superb quality and clinically proven all natural, gentle, and safe for everybody and reasonably priced too. Each product goes a long way because only a small amount is needed for every use. Getting good feedback from my loved-ones and even strangers can attest how highly recommended it is for the entire family. Babies and adults can have healthy skin and smell fresh and pure all day!


Bar Soap:

- white in color so it shows that it's pure and no artificial coloring
- easy to grip and doesn't slip even when being held by kids
- lathers just right
- mild-scented; smells great and the scent stays on skin for hours
- makes skin supple, soft, and smooth without any irritations

My 11 year old son is using this already because he loves the scent so much! According to him, he wants to smell like I baby again.


Hair and Body Wash:

- white in color so it shows that it's pure and no artificial coloring
- makes hair and skin smell really, really good and the sweet powder scent lingers for hours
- makes hair and skin soft and smooth without irritations
- has creamy consistency that doesn't lather too much because of the absence of Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), a cleansing and foaming agent used in soaps, washes, and shampoos that can cause irritations when being used often and high concentrations, but still removes dirt
- has pump-type container that can be locked and unlocked easily

Bunso smells like a baby from head to toe when he uses this at bath time. He is indeed more kissable and huggable!



Face and Body Lotion

- smells so good on skin and the scent stays longer
- makes skin supple, moisturized, soft, and smooth without greasy after-feel; even a seldom lotion user like I do due to experiencing greasiness can be motivated to use it regularly

My youngest son has sensory issues due to Mild Autism Spectrum Disorder. To help him sleep soundly at night, my husband and I massage him for 30-45 minutes before bedtime. He likes his massage more when we use this lotion.


Cologne

- smells lovely like expensive perfume
- scent lingers for hours
- feels very light and refreshing when applied on skin
- non-irritating

The captions on my Instagram photos prove that the three cologne variants are just perfect! For me, they are at par with the famous local and imported cologne brands.

I recommend that you should try Belo Baby line and feel it yourself that it is crafted with care for the most delicate skin, for the most meticulous moms.

Belo Baby is available in all leading supermarkets, groceries, department stores, and online:
