#IbalikAngFeeling with Johnson’s Milk+Oats

My main issue with my daughter’s skin is that dry patches seem to appear out of nowhere. So, when we got sent the new Johnson’s Milk+Oats baby bath and lotion, we tried it right away!

Johnson’s Milk+Oat 200mL Baby Lotion (P168.25) and Baby Bath (P100.75)

Did you know that squeaky clean skin isn’t healthy at all?! That squeaky feeling means that the skin is dry and can lead to skin irritation. Aside from squeaky-dry skin, flakiness, oiliness and rashes are tell-tale signs of unhealthy skin. With Johnson’s Milk+Oats, you’re on your way to healthy, moisturized skin because of its two components. Milk Proteins have been effective in: protecting skin against inflammation; stimulating skin regeneration; and improving skin softness, smoothness and complexion. Oats, on the other hand, contains Avenanthramides which has anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory properties.

Thank you Johnson’s and Ogilvy for sending us this basket!

My husband and I have been long-time users of Johnson’s Milk Bath. So the addition of oats was kinda weird, for me at least. I thought there would be pulverized oats in the bath and lotion, which will be hard to wash off. Apparently, Johnson’s Milk+Oats also has the same consistency as the Milk Bath. No oat scrub! I liked the scent of this better, too! After a month of using, my daughter’s dry skin is hardly noticeable.

We like it so much we bought the big pump bottle! It makes great bubbles for the tub too!

#IbalikangFeeling ng healthy skin with Johnson’s Milk+Oats! We bought the big pump bottle (plus a refill pack) at Unimart. It should be available in all leading supermarkets, drug stores and department stores. But if you’re scared to go out because of the traffic, do online shopping instead! It is available on Zalora and accepts different payment methods for your convenience.

Thanks again Johnson’s and Ogilvy for sending us the samples to try. My daughter’s skin sends her love!

Our Belo Baby Experience

So, what’s in a Belo Baby product?!

Slide1 Slide2 Slide3The people from Belo Baby guarantees us that their products are clinically proven to be gentle on the skin for everyday use. They selected ingredients which are safe, natural and gentle for our little ones, leaving the harmful chemicals which can cause sickness with long-term use.

Presentation1

I’m thankful that Belo Baby sent us their complete line to try. As with anything, I try it on myself first before the kids. Here’s our verdict:

Belo Baby Bar Soap

What strike me the most about the soap was it wasn’t slippery. It was easy to hold, which was a big plus when you’re giving a squirmy baby a bath! I liked that it wasn’t sticky but it also didn’t melt quite as fast as our ordinary soap. Z likes to play with it in the tub and it still looks the same size even after 2 weeks! That’s tipid!

Belo Baby Face and Body Lotion

IMG_3083

This was the first Belo Baby product I got to try. At first, I was surprised that it had a sweet smell, different from the usual baby products which has little to no smell at all. But upon observation, it wasn’t a smell that would tick off sneezes. The sweet almond oil actually helped us to be relaxed. It’s now my new favorite scent!

In the sweltering heat, putting on lotion might be the last thing on your mind. It’s usually a sticky gunk, which feels heavy on the skin. But, Belo Baby Face and Body Lotion is different! I actually liked it, and that’s from someone who does not use lotion! My skin absorb it in an instant and I can really feel how my skin gets super soft! I’m always gigil with Y after putting this on her.

Belo Baby Hair and Body Wash

With this one, we first used it as a shampoo on Y. Since she just have a few hair strands (hehe!) we can just use one pump and her whole head will get cleaned already! Yaya was not too impressed because there were no bubbles. I explained to her that chemicals are the one responsible for bubbles. Since this has no chemicals, don’t expect to be a bubble-head! And because this is a double-duty product, it’s easy to bring along in trips and staycations. The whole family can use it, which was the case on our recent trip!

Belo Baby Cologne

The Belo Baby Cologne comes in three scents: Cool Drizzle, Sweet Snuggle and Happy Tickle. Z likes Cool Drizzle and even put one in his bag. Even when he is sweaty, we can still put cologne on him and the smells doesn’t mix. He always smell fresh and baby-like! My favorite is Sweet Snuggle and it is now a staple in my mommy-bag since it can also be used as a sanitizer. We use it to sanitize high chairs and grocery carts before Y sits. All variants are comforting; they trigger olfactory memories giving me warm and fuzzy feelings.

I highly recommend Belo Baby products to new and seasoned moms. For something made locally, it’s at par with imported baby products in terms of quality but without the harmful ingredients.

Watch out for a giveaway soon!!!

Meet Belo Baby!

Safe. Natural. Gentle.

Which of these three words matter to you in terms of skin care products you will use for your baby?

This was the question posed on me as I registered at M Café last April 6. I chose safe because I don’t want anything harmful coming in contact with my kids. If a product is safe, all else follows.

It’s a fortunate scenario that us moms do not need to choose among the three because the authority in beauty in the country has come out with a skincare line for little ones called Belo Baby: Crafted with care for the most delicate skin, for the most meticulous moms!

Before I dwell on the products, here are some of the food we had at the launch. It was my first time at M Café so it was a treat getting to try these dishes.

When we’ve all had our fill, it was time to put on our thinking caps and participate in the game! Knowing how moms can get competitive really upped the atmosphere, haha! Patty Laurel-Filart, our host for the afternoon read the questions we had to answer as a group. It was enlightening as some of the facts stated were new to me. After 10 questions, our group only had 3 points but everyone still got prizes: Belo Sun Protection Products, yay! I heard good reviews about this so I can’t wait to try it.

Birthday girl, Cristalle Henares, in a gorgeous dress was vibrant in telling the story about this “baby”. She guarantees us that moms are assured that there are no harmful chemicals in each of the products. Her R&D team was present and answered all our questions: whether the ingredients are certified natural, who tested the products and if it has passed a blind test.

The colognes come in three variants: Sweet Snuggle, Happy Tickle and Cool Drizzle. It can also serve as a hand sanitizer so it’s a must-have in every bag!

If I may add another word to describe Belo Baby products, it would be: affordable. Just look at those prices! Most of the natural products out in the market are expensive. I even had to shell out P1,000 before for a body cleanser for my son who had super dry skin. Never again as we have now a more affordable option, available in all leading supermarkets, drug stores and online at: http://www.lazada.com.ph/belo-cosmetics/ http://www.cudsly.com/belobaby and http://www.zalora.com.ph/beauty/belo/ !

The Belo Baby Mombassadors: Kelly Misa-Fernandez, Nicole Hernandez and Patty Laurel-Filart, mingled with us and talked about what they loved most about the Belo Baby products having tried them for almost a month. If these moms tried it, I know that it’s surely worth trying as well!

Wait for the review!
