Review: xplorabox.

Hello everyone.

Hope you’re doing well.

Being a mom of a toddler I can assure you by now that this is the most difficult phase of all. It’s not only about the 100s of questions they ask each hour but also getting bored in a jiffy. When I think of my childhood days I remember using a term ‘BORED’ is only when we had 2 months of summer vacations and the last few days were kind of boring. And whenever I complained about my boring days to my mom, she would always say start studying for the next year.😉

Now, as a parent myself I know how different is this generation. As I told earlier in my previous blogs that ‘we 90s kid are the only generation who have struggled to become friends with our parents and we are struggling to become friends with our kids’.

This generation is different we cannot help! But the fact that there are people making a real change for keeping a toddler busy which in return helps them grow better physically, mentally and intellectually.

I’ve recently come across the activity subscription box for kids. “Xplorabox” is an unique cocept where in they try to engage kids with all new activities every month. The age curated monthly subscription box has 5 different activities and each activity is totally different from each other. The ‘jungle themed’ box here has 5 activity.

  1. My magnetic wildlife.
  • Motor skills
  • Academic skills
  • Confidence
  • Creative and exploring skills

This activity has a magnetic board, animal cutouts, 1 sheet of dense jungle animals and 1 sheet of cold regions animals.

Each sheet has to be placed over the magnetic board and the child has to match the pictures with the animal cutouts. this keeps them engaged and they really love the magnetic feel whenever they attch a picture.

2. Animal puzzle.

  • Motor skills
  • Academic skills
  • Confidence
  • Play and social skills.

There are 4 cutouts of animals and their babies. This is a jigsaw puzzle. A very innovative way of introducing animals and their babies. As each puzzle has different number of babies with them it’s fun to count the babies too.

3. Match the spots.

  • Motor skills
  • Creative and exploring skills
  • Cognitive skills
  • Play and social skills.

This activity has a board of animal patterns and there are cutouts of each animal.

The child has to recognize the animal pattern and then match it accordingly. Again a very new concept and very engaging.

4. My reptile world craft activity.

  • Motor skills
  • Creative and exploring skills
  • Play and social skills.

This is  a coloring activity which has a board, cutout sheets, 2 colors (paint), 2 sponges, 1 color tray and glue drop sheet.

Exploring paint is every kid’s favorite. This activity has cutouts of few reptiles. The child has to color the reptiles using a sponge and once the reptiles are colored they are all arranged in a big board and thus making a reptile world.

5. Monkey feeder

  • Motor skills
  • Academic skills
  • Cognitive skills.
  • Play and social skills.

This activity has a monkey board which has its mouth open, a tree with a tiny spinner and 12 fruit cutouts. This is my personal favorite too. Basically, a tree has 3 fruits (banana, mango and orange) attached. Every time the child rotates the spinner and it shows any of the fruits, the child has to pick the same fruits from the tree and feed it to the monkey. This game goes on and on.

My personal experience.

  • This is one of the innovative way to keep kids engaged.
  • There are 5 different activity in a single box every month.
  • Each activity has its own benefits to the child and the details about the improvements are listed in the box.
  • All the items provided here has a good quality. It’s totally not a one-time activity and it can be used later on.
  • Each activity is safeguarded in a cloth bag thus there is never a chance of mixing up.
  • It’s an age appropriate box from 2-4, 4-6, 6-8 and 8+.
  • The materials provided has good quality and there is no fear of wear and tear.
  • Each activity has an instruction card and there is no worry of not understanding an activity.

The most important thing about this box is that this is one of the best way to spend some quality time with kids.

another most important factor is that this keeps screen time away.

This box is priced at Rs.1099/-

These are coffee scrubs that are blended with activated charcoal, chocolate, coffee sugar, mango and strawberry. the brand offers you a wide range of coffee scrubs and one can choose from the variety according to personal preferences.

strawberry.

Anything that smells strawberry becomes my favorite.

This smells exactly like a freshly squeezed strawberry mixed with coffee.

The beauty co india coffee scrub.

Mango.

Mangoes are something which you’ll not get the whole of the year. But what if I tel you that scrubs from the beauty co has a mango flavored coffee scrubs that makes justice to your skin more than mango satisfies your tongue. It smells more of a coffee with a hint of mango.

The first thing I most liked about this product is that these are made from organic coffee beans, fruits extracts and sugar.

The scrub texture is like a sand mixed with coffee.

I loved how the scrub made my skin smooth and radiant instantly after wash.

The oil present in it makes skin smooth.

And to my surprise the smooth feeling on skin stayed for almost 6 hrs straight.

Body smelled wonderful throughout the day.

I would suggest to use it on a daily basis for soft and smooth skin throughout.

The packaging of the product was way too good. Comes with a zip lock packet. Not a travel friendly though.

it’s priced decent.

I absolutely love the good vibe I get after every use, trust me!

It’s been long I reviewed a product.

Since it’s Ramadan and I don’t have much time I thought of reviewing product that’s always on my closet.

Frizzy hair,tangled hair,dry hair and bad hair days are the ones which I always face. Thanks to my curls who has never seen good hair days!

My problem with my hair has begun since childhood and my love for straight hair was always a dream. Finally for my wedding I had permission to straighten my hair! Little did I know the side effects later on! After 1 year of my straight hair obviously I had tons of pictures of my good hair days I started feeling that my hair growth has the same old story. My hair fall was in full slay and there was damages as well.

Now, with my old curly hair I have a temporary solution whenever I feel my hair is not that satisfying.

LIVON SERUM.

Hair serums are silicone based product which coats the surface of your hair!

It’s a serum which has vitamin E and known for one of the affordable serums. With a mild fragrance and lots of benefits let’s have a detailed look on the product.

How to apply:

After shampooed and towel dried damp hair take few drops and gently rub on the palm

And spread evenly on the hair length.

Start from the middle then to the bottom of your hair length.

Comb well and you’re good to go!

Review softsens baby care range.

Hello everybody.

Hope you’re doing well.

IMG_6400Being a mother, the quest for safer and organic products is never sorted. I as a mother google a lot about how my daughter can stay away from all the chemicals around. Well, I think I am quite satisfied with the bath and baby care range from the brand called Softsens.

If you are following me on Instagram, you might already know that I recently received softsens’s baby care range and used it on my boss girl. She seems to be enjoying and I thought of reviewing it here. So, let’s get started!

I received their complete baby care collection to try on that includes the following.

IMG_63781.BABY MASSAGE OIL.

IMG_E6841

massage oils are not my kid’s thing now because she doesn’t really like being oiled. And for the fact that she has left the age of massages long back. i still gave a try. The oil is light which is very good when you give a good massage. It spreads evenly and makes skin soft. What I most liked about it is its not greasy and oily at all after use. I am going to use it more often now. keeps her skin well hydrated.

price:100ml-rs.95

200 ml-rs.165.

2.BABYSOAPS.

IMG_E6845

There were 2 baby soap range

Milk bar and natural bar.Its paraben free and no added colors makes them unique. It leaves the skin soft and the fragrance is quite appealing. its rich, creamy soft lather that cleanses the skin. It has a new born fragrance. Refreshed many of my nostalgic moments.

price: 75g-rs.45

100gm*3 -rs.135.

3.BABY WASH.

IMG_E6843The wash has been our favorite and my kid enjoys using it. Its mild and the fragrance is quite appealing. The wash is enriched with natural milk cream and shea butter. Its transparent in color and foams well. It is not very thick in consistency, lil watery. Little amount of it suffices the whole body.

200 ml -rs.142.

4.BABY SHAMPOO.

IMG_E6851This was the first time I used shampoo on my babys hair. Obviously for the fact that I dint wanted my babys hair to dry out and look frizzy. But my first experience experimenting with softsens baby shampoo has been a hit. It doesn’t dry out and hair looks good enough even after hours of shampooing. Nourishes the babys hair and scalp. It makes hair soft and smooth. The fragrance again is like the other products of softsens. Enriched with natural plant-based essential oils. My baby’s hair smelled amazing and lasted really long. its transparent and foams really well. A coin size of it is good to go. Its also tear free which is best part of this shampoo.

200 ml-rs.156.

5.BABYLOTION.

IMG_E6847Baby lotion are the ones which I never skip because of the frequent climate changes your baby need moisturization. This lotion is white in color and I loved their consistency. I always liked lotion with a little thick base. It moisturizes skin well and doesn’t dry out quick. It hydrates and nourishes babys skin leaving it soft.The fragrance is similar like that of other products of softsens. And I must say the fragrance has stayed on my Baby’s skin for almost 12hrs.

200 ml- rs.142.

6.BABY CREAM.

IMG_E6849I use baby cream only on face. I never experimented on creams and always glued to one expensive and imported product. I always step back when it comes to trying on babys face. Well when I read about their baby care range I was assured that product is all worth for such budget friendly range. Enriched with natural milk cream and shea butter. Its white in color and a coin size suffices. It keeps the skin nourished and hydrated for hours. Fragrance is mild and doesn’t last longer. It is little greasy when applied and dries out quick.

100g-rs.128.

7.BABY WIPES.IMG_E6853

Wipes are the ones which is my favorite among all baby care products. Why u ask? Its because of its refreshing smell and constant mommy use! the wipes I received contains aloe vera. Its free from paraben,alcohol and color. The wipes were smaller than usual may be because of the smaller packaging. Its obviously travel friendly. I loved the smell. Its too good. I used this more on myself.

price:pack of 20-rs.60

pack of 80-rs.200.

8.BABY POWDER.

IMG_E6839

Baby powder is one I never used because of the effect of talc. The baby powder from softsens claims to be hypoallergenic. It contains natural plant-based ingredients which protects the baby’s skin from prickly heat making baby feel cool and comfortable. Its very light and I enjoyed using it.

Price: 200 gm-rs.110.

Pros of softsens

100% safe for baby.

Biodegradable.

Hypoallergenic.

Not tested on animals.

Free of parabens and harmful chemicals.

Contains pure and natural plan-based ingredients and essential oils.

Budget friendly

Fragrance is amazing and similar.

Loved the color coordinated packaging.

Loved their motto “inspired by moms,  developed by experts.

Cons.

I felt all the products smelled same.

I also did not like the foams of the bath care range.

i would definitely recommend this.

I try the baby products first on myself then on my baby!

Review:clean and clear brightening berry face wash

Hello everybody.
So, this is my official first review.

IMG_2291I have been using clean and clear morning energy face wash for years now and I am quite impressed with it. I am that category person who feels face wash does all the magic. I started using this product right after my marriage. Just randomly picked from a supermarket obviously attracted to the tiny cute bottle.

About the face wash.
Name:Clean and clear morning energy face wash brightening berry.
It is oil free.
It has natural berry extracts with bursting beads.

What I really love about this product is that bursting beads. I enjoy the stinging sensation it gives when you massage your face with it. I even try to burst it on my pimple and gently rub through it.

I have literally felt the difference when i had forgot my face wash in native and i had to stick my school days companion SOAP.i could feel my face rough. i really felt bad about it. the next day i rushed to my supermarket to get it. after i used it i felt home!

IMG_E2294

The rich foam of this face wash rigorously cleans dirt and oil. It really gives that energetic vibe when your skin feels dull. I absolutely love the berry fragrance it contains and the color. As it says in the packaging that ‘gives you morning energy anytime of the day’ is authentic.
A coin size of it and you are done for the day.
I really love their packaging. It comes with purple flip top and a transparent bottle with pink liquid and bursting beads. The flip top of this bottle makes sure that it does not spill and is a great travel companion.
The face wash claims to have a special ingredient that helps in preventing common skin problems, without over drying.

IMG_2297
The face wash is available in all local stores and online.
Its costs up to rs.70 for 50ml.
And rs.130 for 100ml.
Its expiry is mostly 2 to 3 years from manufacture.
Absolutely budget friendly.
The only downside of this product is that there are no ingredients mentioned in the packaging.
Rating :4.5 out of 5.
Recommending?
Of course, yes!
