Heya,

Spring is here and it’s time to take care of our skin.

It’s not just mothers that suffer from dry skin, its babies too. A baby’s skin is much more susceptible than adults to skin conditions such as dry skin due to over sensitivity and fluctuating temperatures. This leads to reduced moisture levels which causes skin to dry out leaving your babies skin itchy, taut, flaky  and in need of a drink and some special care.

Bepanthen Moisturiser has been specifically developed for babies and infants and is so gentle it is even suitable for new-borns. It contains provitamin B5 which helps to protect baby’s delicate skin and keeps skin hydrated around the clock. Clinically proven, it gently moisturises skin and helps protect it from dry and itchy symptoms. Well… if it’s good for babies, it’s going to be good for your skin as well (especially if you have really sensitive skin).

Bepanthen Moisturiser is suitable for babies with extra sensitive skin and doesn’t contain any:
·         Alcohol
·         Colours
·         Fragrances
·         Parabens
·         Other Preservatives

Price €7.49

Tired of shaving? Have you ever tried sugaring? No? You should! Sugaring works in a similar way to waxing – makes your hair grow thinner and thinner.

Sugar Strip Ease is made from special blend of sugar syrups and is 100% free from any chemicals or additives.  Product is completely water soluble – no need for ‘after waxing wipes’. The fabric strips are reusable – just clean them under warm water to get rid of any residue.

Sugar StripEase Kit contains:
- Sugar StripEase Natural Hair Remover Jar 250g;
– Strips, Reusable & Washable x15;
– Applicators x3 (2 large and 1 small);
– Instructions.

How to use:
Heat up the jar in microwave for 60 seconds (around 650 watt). Make sure it’s not too hot (test the product on your wrist). Apply the thin layer of sugar wax with wooden spatula. Immediately cover with a fabric strip. Pull back in the opposite direction of hair growth. And… you are done!

Pros:
- simple to use;
– only 2 ingredients – no lemon juice (a common ingredient in sugaring that can be irritant on sensitive skin);
– honey-ish consistency – not as messy as wax;
– less painful than wax – sugar syrup sticks only to the hair and not to the skin;
– suitable for sensitive skin – can be used on every area of the body from face to legs, bikini-line to underarm;
– water soluble;
– pretty packaging;
– leaving silky smooth skin for around 2-3 weeks;
– price (around 14 euro);
– not tested on animals.

Cons:
- none.
