Coco2U Nature’s Miracle

img_2287

Reality strikes as the year moves onto 2017. Age is most certainly catching up, as I urge to try my very best to maintain my youth and being an active momma for 2 Bright, Brilliant and Blooming kids can be rather tough sometimes. I have tried various products over the years and I have been really fond of products that are derived from 100% natural sources and toxin- free ingredients that include brands (that I have personally tried) such as 100%Pure®, XYLIQUE, COCO2U. Recently, I have yet discovered a new range of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil Skincare Series.

img_0003

Being a huge fan or coconut I was extremely excited when the products arrived my doorstep. The brand COCO2U uses all ingredients that are derived from 100% natural source. Virgin Coconut Oil is an effective component for skin care treatment. The virgin coconut oil is high in antioxidants that pass through into the concealed cells of the skin. The oil helps protect the body versus the formation of totally free radicals which are molecules that rob electrons from the millions of cells in the body. These free radicals are known to damage and also ruin cells including the body’s connective tissues. These cells are accountable for maintaining the skin flexible and also versatile. Hence, the wonders of this series is known to assists in strengthening these connective tissues while preventing skin sagging and also wrinkling. Meanwhile, It does the amazing wonders of softening as well as hydrating the skin, and eliminates filth from the outer layer of the skin making it healthy, smooth with a  natural glow from within.

COCO2U is designed and formulated with Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Natural Botanical Active Ingredients that delivers great and effective result. In this series, I tried the full range of products known as the Hydrating Cleanser, Pore Refining Tonique, The Luminous Serum, Bioactive Day Moisturiser, and The Bioactive Night Moisturiser.

Hydrating Cleanser 

This hydrating Cleanser is designed and formulated with organic virgin coconut oil, aloe vera and AquaCacteen to soothe and hydrates the skin, while providing cleansing. It is excellent for all skin types and its even gentle enough to remove makeup. AquaCacteen is an ultra-refined elixir from an organic cactus (Opuntia ficus-indica) which soothes and hydrates both women’s and men’s skin.

Directions : Wet hands and face, pump onto hands and massage onto damp skin in circular motions and rinse off with warm water. I use this every morning and night.

Pore Refining Tonique 

This pore refining tonique is designed and formulated with Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Natural Mushroom Extract to help visibly reducing the pore size and also improving its texture and tone. I personally did see some visible changes to my pores during the first week from using this series.

Directions : After cleansing, put a generous amount of Pore Refining Tonique on a cotton pad and gently glide it over the face. I use this twice a day, both morning and night.

An intensive treatment that organically replenishes and rehydrates the skin for instance radiance and softness. This light, fast absorbing, hydrating Luminious serum instantly penetrates and infuses the skin with organic virgin coconut oil, niacinamide, vitamin C, and tropical oils to bio-actively re-energise and rejuvenate the skin, leaving it with a smoother, natural radiance and glow.

Directions : Apply to face and neck after cleansing and toning. I used this twice a day and is currently one of my favourite serum in my daily skin care regimen as upon application, it inspires a very natural glow while rejuvenates my tired, stressed skin.

Directions : Apply to face and neck every evening after cleansing, toning, and serum application. 

img_0009

I am truly fond of these products and began noticing changes to my skin upon using it for only a week. Being able to find organic products that works is not easy and I can say for a fact, these products works very well for me and my skin. One fact that I love is that these products Do Not Promote Animal Testing, No Artificial Preservatives Used, No SLS, No Parabens and No Petroleum Derived Chemicals.

Keep It Clean: The Adventures of Busy Mom

img_3682

Being a momma blogger has given me so many privileges. One of them I truly treasure is when I meet and develop new friendship along the way.

Today, I would like to introduce another writer and owner of a small cleaning business in London known as Evie Horton.

evie-horton

She is my guest blogger for today, and had came up with many wonderful yet brilliant ideas that I would love to share with all you readers, to be inspired by her as to how she has inspired me.

Keep It Clean: The Adventures of Busy Mom

furniture-1041492_1280

Today’s moms are supposed to deal with many challenges as a part of their everyday routine. They have to take up a full time job, take care of the household, look after kids and meanwhile, find a way to be fit and healthy, exercise regularly, catch up with old friends and take a well-deserved rest. It seems like 24 hours are not enough for completing these more or less pleasant activities.

Cleaning is, without a doubt, a tiresome and time-consuming process, especially if your kids consider the walls a canvas and the living room floor a playground where they can scatter all the toys. Here are a few tips that can help you keep the house clean and find time to do the things you love.

• Even if you are a stay-at-home mom, you might still find yourself unable to deal with all cleaning tasks you have to complete for the day, especially if you live in a spacious house and nobody else, but you take care of the cleanliness. That’s why you are advised to split up the tiresome cleaning chores into several manageable tasks. The best way to achieve this is to set up a cleaning schedule and assign a cleaning task for each day.

• Make an evaluation of your time. If you are among those people who tend to take “small” one-hour breaks between the duties they are supposed to perform, don’t be surprised if you never have time for yourself. Instead of procrastinating, focus all your efforts on completing the tasks efficiently and they, you will be able to enjoy some free time.

• There are some days when you just feel under the weather, you are unproductive and easily distracted. In days like this, the last thing you want to think of is keeping the house clean. Yet, you can still take up cleaning and tidying up procedures that take care of themselves. Pushing the button of the dishwasher or the washing machine is not that tiresome, right?

• Cleaning duties will be much easier if you can rely on the help of the other family members. Actually, engaging your kids into cleaning activities is an excellent way for teaching them some essential skills. For instance, your kids can learn the importance of being organized through cleaning and this will be extremely helpful at a later stage for sure.

If you consider it appropriate, follow Shiny Carpets suggestion to set a timer and perform 5 or 10-minute clean-ups in every room. Wipe the spills from the countertops, treat the stains on the carpet with a suitable detergent, mop the floors, sanitize the kitchen sink.
Organize stuff and know the place of every item. Always keep similar items together and always put stuff back in place after you have used it. You can even ask your kids to gather all the toys in the contained they belong to. This way, they will learn to sort out and prioritize, so you kill two birds with one stone. You have fewer cleaning tasks and teach your kids invaluable personal skills.

Don’t forget that if you feel you cannot deal with so many tasks at once, you can always arrange professional helpers. Take a look at the prices your local cleaning company offers and contact them to find out more about the cleaning service. That will not only save you a lot of time, but will also ensure the dirt-free environment at home. After all, there is a reason why cleaners, employed with trustworthy cleaning companies are called professionals.

Loccitane Gifting Experience

img_0032

A couple of weeks ago, the husband went to Europe for work. It was probably the longest by far we have ever been apart ever since we were married. Initially, we both didn’t too much of it. 10 days, it isn’t that long and no doubt its going to pass in a jiffy with my time being consumed up with work, motherhood and chores. Furthermore, i thought to myself, we have been married for a good 7 years! A little break makes the heart fonder, right?

Gosh!! It was the toughest 10 days ever! I had been ill for the longest time (caught a horrible horrible horrible influenza from my trip to Japan). I regretted big time for not taking the flu jab before my trip back then. Non the less, a day after he left i had food poisoning which had me cried for help from my neighbours to get some anti vomiting pills as it was late in the evening and i didn’t want to resort to driving myself to the hospital while leaving my kids at home. Thankfully, i felt so much better after the next day!

As we both count down the days till we see each other again, we both missed each other very much. I am very thankful that our relationship is simply so strong that even after so many years of being together we are still working on being that mushy couple like how we have been the very first few months we met.

And so, despite sending each other endless photos of our daily life from what we ate to places we visited/went to…being away from each other, we tried little ways to make each other feel special.. one of which is a collaboration  that we had made through SMULE. *Just in case you don’t already know about SMULE, its an amazing app that allows us to sing with various people (good and bad singers – hence please don’t feel intimidated) around the globe.

Before you click on the link below~ let me share with all a little personal story/secret. I have always been really intimidated to sing, especially in front of my husband. Why? Because he is simply just gifted in singing. And ever since the very first day i went Karaoke with him i know for a fact that i was nowhere near that standard, and for a good 7 over years i had never really held a microphone nor sing with him. Whenever i was forced to, i made sure nobody could really hear my actual voice as i will request for backup singing to be left on really loud*

So, doing this really took me a lot of courage, hence.. if it doesn’t sound too good~ please do excuse your ears. >.<

As the days passed extremely slowly, I decided that i wanted to make him feel that extra special when he came back (to show how much i appreciate and treasure having him in my life). Hence, i decided to capture a very personal genuine gifting experience with L’OCCITANE by capturing a genuine gifting experience showcasing my relationship with the love of my life.

I went to L’OCCITANE at the curve to choose the gifts. It took me a good 30 minutes even though i already know the store inside out. I wanted to choose a special gift that i know he would use and appreciate.

In the end, instead of picking him a gift. I got him A BOX of Gifts!

I came home and wrote him a little note and waited for him to come home from work.

img_0031

I waited and waited.. then finally….

 

Indeed the moment was simply priceless. Thank you L’OCCITANE for this beautiful experience and this very precious memory and joy for gifting from the heart of love. This very thoughtful and heartwarming process had us expressing so much love, joy, excitement, happiness and desire for one another. Truly, we are extremely thankful and blessed!

With Christmas Season just around the corner, have you decided what gifts you are going to get for that very special someone! I would most definitely highly recommend something from L’OCCITANE. What more can i say, i’m a huge fan! 🙂

 

Animal 4D+ Alphabet Interactive Cards Review

I am one of those mommas that believes in enrichment classes. One of the most recent ones that caught my attention is called Code Juniors. As our generation revolves, teaching methods has also changed drastically as well. Flash cards are probably one of the most common cards moms/teachers/guardian starts of with for their children when it comes to learning. Well, that was me 5 years back! I still remember being excited receiving a pack of flashcards when my daughter was one years of age. I was one of those hardcore mommas where i constantly read/teach her with them. But today flash cards are no longer the same. It’s no longer 2D and boring but have became interactive flash cards!

A couple of weeks back i received one of the most amazing gifts any mother can share/teach/play with their children. These are the amazing Animal 4D+ Alphabet Interactive Flash Cards from Code Juniors. At first these cards looks just the same as any other ordinary cards you may find at any Montessori and Bookshop. However, as i read the instructions and began to download the app i began to understand the miraculous wonder these interactive cards are for the next generation of time.

image

The instructions are extremely simple and easy to understand. I was really excited to share with my children and i couldn’t wait to see their reactions to these interactive cards.

image

By placing the cards of the respective animal, a 4D version of it pops up! *totally beyond coolness* My children were excited yet stunned at how these cards pops out an individual animal of its own while reading out its description.

image

They tried a few rounds of various animals from the cards and as each 4D animal pops up, i could see their eyes grew bigger with curiosity.

image

*Roars* says the lion…

image

Another amazing feature from these miraculous cards are the ability for the animal to interact with their food. Below shows a horse eating grass!!!! *call me “Kampung Style”  a.k.a (old fashion) but this is my first time seeing 4D+ interactive cards available in the market today to teach the children beyond the normal 2D conventional method.

image

Both my children were glued to these cards for hours. I love that it’s not only educational, it’s interactive, fun, and the children gets to experience a whole new level of creative thinking at the same time. I personally LOVE these cards.

These Animal 4D+ alphabet interactive cards are indeed an amazing development by Octagon Studio Augmented Reality creation. It is available for both Google Play or App Store!

100% Pure Shampoo Review

Being a huge fan of 100% Pure, i have been trying out their products over the past couple of months now from skincare to makeup to nail care and now i’m truly hooked to their haircare.

What i love most about their haircare products are that its extremely gentle and suitable for all hair types including coloured treated hair. The past two years or so, i have been rather adventurous with my hair from perming to colouring to bleaching and it has indeed been a fun journey for me and my hair however i as fun as it may be to have a change every now and then, it is equally as important to maintain and take care of my hair as well. 100% Pure Hair Care are made from all natural formulation and does not contain synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, chemical preservatives, sulphites, or any other harsh ingredients that may cause further damage to the hair.

Being a huge fan, i decided to try their full series of hair care…

Burdock & Neem Healthy Scalp – healthy scalp = healthy hair

Honey & Virgin Coconut Restorative – to restore dry, damaged hair

Kelp & Mint Volumizing – revitalizes bounce and body

Yuzu & Pomelo Glossing – for healthy, glossy locks

image

I first tried Yuzu & Pomelo Glossing for healthy glossy locks. I love the refreshing smell of yuzu and pomelo while it gives my hair a hydrating feel. The super gentle shampoo and conditioner washes away excess oil from my scalp while moisturising my locks with that brilliant shine, bounce and vibrancy that i longed for. Both the shampoo and conditioner contains ingredients such as Organic Rose Hydrofoil, Organic Aloe, Avocado, Flaxseed Oil, Virigin coconut, Rosemary, Lavender, Honey Suckle, Yuzu, Pink Grapefruit and many more wonderful natural and organic ingredients. 

image

*comes in 8oz and 13 oz 100% natural, 100% vegetarian, and gluten free*

With such great results from Yuzu & Pomelo i moved on into trying Honey & Virgin Coconut Restorative shampoo and conditioner to restore my damage locks. Being a huge fan of coconut, this is by far my favourite, it deeply moisturises, repairs, softens and detangles dry, damage hair. I was truly amazed at how soft my hair felt. The ingredients in this product are amazing AND they are also organic such as Honey, Vitamin E, Oregano, Calendula, Goldenseal, Organic Flaxseed, Orange Peel, Organic Aloe, Coconut Oil, Lavender and more.. 

image

*comes in 8oz and 13 oz 100% natural, 100% vegetarian, and gluten free*

I always believe that it is always good to have our scalp cleanses at least once a week to remove the impurities and excessive oil stuck within the scalp. Burdock & Neem Healthy Scalp did just that for me. A healthy scalp means you’ll have healthier hair hence, treating your scalp will help to purify, unclog the pores, stimulate circulation and help alleviate dryness, itching and flaking. Treating my hair with this hydrating formulation helps turn my hair healthy, nourished and vibrant. Both the shampoo and conditioner contains ingredients such as Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Organic Rose Hydrosol, Avocado, Organic Aloe, Lavender, Burdock, Coconut Oil, Neem Seed Oil, Orange and more.. 

image

*comes in 8oz and 13 oz 100% natural, 100% vegetarian, and gluten free*

Kelp & Mint Volumizing has helped to revitalised the bounce and body for my locks. Its invigorating, hydrating minty shampoo and conditioner helps to gently purifies while adding bounce, body and cluster. Nourishing formulation also helps makes the hair healthier, stronger and glossier. What i love about this product is that it contains Kelp which is known as nature’s hair thickener and fortifier while seaweed collagen adds the amazing shine on my hair. Ingredients in the products are Peppermint Essential Oil, Goldenseal, Thyme, Nettle, Kelp, Flaxseed Oil, Oregano, Lavender, Avocado, and more.

image

*comes in 8oz and 13 oz 100% natural, 100% vegetarian, and gluten free*

I can’t express how much i LOVE the hair care range. 100% Pure once again has won my heart over. Their products are not ONLY 100% Natural, 100% Vegetarian, and Glutten Free.. they are also Certified to be Organic. Whats there not to LOVE about them?…. NOTHING!

Have you heard of the brand XYLIQUE?

 XYLIQUE™’s revolutionary skincare line is inspired directly by the healing power of nature. Their products are formulated with finest natural nutrient rich plant/flower/herbal complex that enhances skin’s health, vibrant and flawless appearance. These nature powered ingredients are expertly blended along with scientifically proven botanical essentials that have been utilized for centuries.

imageTHE HEALING POWER OF NATURE XYLIQUE™’s selection of skincare

As many of you already knows, i have always loved using natural products. When i first heard about XYLIQUE™ i was extremely excited. The SAFE, EFFECTIVE SKIN CARE SOLUTIONS FROM NATURAL SOURCE is completely free of synthetic preservatives, parabens, sulfates, artificial colors and fragrances and petroleum derived chemicals. By combining the revitalizing, purifying and finest natural nutrient rich plant/flower/herbal complex, XYLIQUE™ delivers safe and effective solutions to meet what our skin needs. I love the fact that the products are derived from 100% natural source.

image

The Moor Mud Cleansing bar surprisingly is one of my favourite products from this range.

image

image

Personally, i have never been a fan of bar soaps until i tried XYLIQUE™ Moor Mud Deep Cleansing bar. It easily foams up as i lather and massaged it all over my face. Upon cleaning it off, my skin felt light, refreshed, cleansed and slightly minty (which i personally love).

image

The Moor Mud Revival Mask is made from 100% pure vital moor complex with no added ingredients. It deeply nourishes and replenishes skin for increased suppleness and healthy, youthful glow.

image

To use, I mixed a teaspoon of the mask with 2 drops of water and it smoothens out into a paste. After that i applied it directly onto my face and leave it on for a good 3 min for first application and gradually build to a maximum of 10 minutes with each application.

image

Once the time is up, i rinsed it off with warm water and my face felt fantabulously refreshed. *hearts*

Next i applied the Hydrating Toning Lotion. It contains phyto-hyaluronate, seaweed, green tea, juniper and sage. This cooling, alcohol free toning lotion contains hydrating and softening botanical extracts that plumps dehydrated skin.

image

I love the Intense Radiance Serum. It is known to reduce the appearance of hyper pigmentation, sun spots, and acne scars. The exclusive formulation contains niacin amide and herbal extracts to brighten the complexion and even out skin tone. Upon cleansing and toning, i massage the serum over my face and neck  and find that it absorbs rather easily into my skin. I would highly recommend this to everyone!

image

I then applied the XYLIQUE™ Hydrating Cream. Mind you, this is a cream not lotion as stated. I felt that using just a little bit was enough for my full face and neck (saves quite a lot in the long run as you only need a little bit). The product contains ingredients such as plant sterols, sweet potato, thyme, rosemary, goldenseal and more amazing ingredients to deeply hydrate, protect and revitalise the skin.

image
I have been using this range of products for over a week now and i can’t seem to find any faults to complain about. I am glad that there are products like these in the market (100% natural source products are generally rather hard to find)

Right now, they are running an amazing valuable set for all to try. Containing of 5 piece hydrating and Radiance Skin care to fulfil the basic needs to feed our skin with full hydration while brightening the skin.

Hi-Tea ~ Flower Tea Review

image
Flower tea has been in the world for centuries. Each tea brings an exquisite taste as well as effect to one individal with certain health benefits. Ever since i have been exposed to learn about flower teas i have been hooked. I loved the scent, the soothing effect that it gives me and the benefits it provides to me overall.

Although that being said, there are many grades of teas in the market and i sincerely believe that good quality grade premium teas brings you better results and are known to be little and/or free of chemicals. One of my favourite Tea Brands in the market right now are known as Hi-Tea.

Recently, i have tried 5 amazing blooms with their own unique aromatic fragrances of flower tea from Hi-Tea. These are known as Peach Fruit Tea, Lavender, Rosemary, Sweet Osmanthus and Blooming Tea. Each individual flower teas are packed into food graded zip lock bag to ensure its freshness.

imageMy personal favourite are the Peach Fruit Tea and Sweet Osmanthus. They are both refreshing and has a hint of sweetness to it at the same time. Peach tea is known to have a variety of health benefits such as relief from hypokalemia, cancer, obesity and are known to be herbal detoxification. Osmanthus flower tea helps dispels cold and dampness in the body, decrease the mucus caused by inflamed lungs and reduce coughing, treats menstrual pain, as well as regular stomach pain, tooth aches, warms stomach, improves digestion, treats intestinal diseases and reduces the amount of stomach gas, removes many toxins from the body while moisturises the skin.

A personal favourite blend of mine is a mixture of Flower Teas

image(Sweet Osmanthus, Lavender and Rosemary).

image

Method :

2g of Lavender + 2 gram of Sweet Osmanthus and 1 gram of Rosemary. This creates a soothing and relaxing fragrance to both the mind and soul with a unique lingering taste on the tastebud.

image

Blooming tea, or otherwise known as flowering tea, is the combination of green tea leaves and certain flowers. One or more dried flowers are wrapped in bundles of dried tea leaves formed into a bulb shape then set for drying. Other than its unique and refreshing taste, its aesthetic is truly remarkable. The bulb, once put in boiling water, expands and unfurls into something like a blooming flower which is indeed very pretty to watch. It also brings amazing benefits such as improving metabolism, boost brain functions, protects the heart, kills bacteria in the mouth, alleviates stress and more.

For further information, you can check out their Facebook Page Hi-Tea Malaysia and Website Hi-Tea. They have 18 various kinds of flower teas to choose from and you will most certainly be spoilt for choices in deciding. 🙂

Dr Morita Mask Review

As my hectic schedule continues (you can read about it heRe..) , one of my favourite moments is to take a few minutes in a day to have a break. One of these moments includes self pampering sessions. This month, i have  discovered a new brand known as the Dr. Morita Mask.

imageBased on research, Dr.Morita is famed for its ultra-effective pharmaceutical grade facial masks, and has finally been introduced in Malaysia. The Dr. Morita brand has known to have extreme focused on research and development throughout a good 83 years of development. It has an extensive range of facial masks designed to bring out instantly visible effects on skin for hydrating, whitening, repairing, soothing, or anti-aging.
Originating from Taiwan and known in the region as one of the pioneers in facial mask, Dr. Morita owes much of it success to its research and development center in Japan. As a testimony to the brand’s success, Dr. Morita was awarded Best Facial Mask in 2008 and 2009 from the Watson pharmaceutical chain stores in Taiwan. It has also become a very popular brand in Hong Kong and Taiwan, and became the No. 1 facial sheet mask in less than 2 years. Hence, i was extremely excited to have learnt it is now available in Malaysia.

Dr. Morita complete range of products are now exclusively at Guardian pharmacy nationwide. Dr. Morita facial mask retails at RM22.90 whereas the Dr. Morita facial watery cream / sleeping mask is priced at RM39.90.

I tried Dr. Morita Face-Aid Kit and Dr.Morita Pearl Whitening Facial Mask.

imageDr. Morita Pearl Whitening Facial Mask contains unique ingredients such as Tranexamic Acid & Hyaluronic Acid imported from Japan + Pear Powder. Tranexamic Acid is a new generation of whitening ingredient to even out skin tone while giving the skin a luminous brightening effect. Pearl powder, helps to brighten up skin tone while diluting dullness on and under the skin. Hyluronic Acid is known to have an ultra moisturising factor to maintain hydration while locking its moisture on the skin leaving it supple, firm and smooth. To use, it was extremely easy.. upon cleansing the face, i apply the mask directly on my skin and left it on for a goof 10-15min. I then removed the mask and massaged the excess essence into my skin.

Ecover Zero Review

image

I have always been fond of products that are known to be natural, eco friendly and effective. Recently, i tried a brand known as Ecover Zero.

Ecover is known to be one the largest green companies in Belgium that only produces household cleaning products that derived from plants and minerals. The products are dermatologically tested and it is recommended to be be used by people with sensitive skin AND it is safe enough to use for babies as well. Very often, people find it difficult to breath after using the harsh cleaning detergent, it is not only uncomfortable but it is also dangerous as it could lead to lung infection after using it for a long period of time.

In Malaysia there are 2 range of products from Ecover.
Ecover Normal Range – ( Bathroom cleaner, Dish detergent, Kitchen cleaner and Laundry detergent)
Ecover Zero Range – ( Dish Detergent and Laundry Detergent Only).

I tried the Ecover Zero Range.

Ecover Zero Non-Bio Laundry Liquid 

Ecover Zero Fabric Conditioner 

Ecover Zero Washing-up Liquid 

The differences between Ecover Normal Range and Ecover Zero Range are that Ecover Zero does not contain any fragrance and colouring. It is also tested by UK Allergy.

Known to be the pioneer in green science for over 30 years, Ecover has managed to bring nature on our side while creating effective detergents which allows our laundry to be done effectively with powerful formulation and yet gentle on the fabrics. Its gentle formula keeps the fabrics soft, fresh and easy to iron – for comfy clothes. What i love most about this range is that it is created with plant and mineral based ingredients which are effective, while reducing pollution PLUS it contains no colouring, fragrance or enzymes to ensure that it is not harmful towards our skin.

Ecover Zero Non-Bio Laundry Detergent 1500ml RM54.90

I was utmost amazed at how luxuriously soft and fresh my clothes and towels were upon using the Fabric Conditioner. It softens clothes effectively while caring for sensitive skin. This is extremely important for me and my family. Ever since i have children, i have learnt that their tiny body and skin are not the same as adults. What we may feel alright with, may not be for them. Hence, i went through much trial and error and have always had a hard time finding the right kind of products to use for my children. Now that i have found Ecover Zero Range, i can be sure to say that i am at ease knowing that i am using products that are safe on the clothes they wear.

Ecover Zero Fabric Conditioner 750ml RM23.90

The washing up liquid does amazing wonders by cutting through grease and grime while caring for sensitive skin. It effectively washes up the dishes, cutlery and glassware leaving it sparkling clean. It doesn’t generate excessive bubbles but with one squeeze it was enough for me to wash the whole sink full of dirty dishes. I was rather amused at its clever formulation to tackle grease and grime , leaving the pots and pans spotless while the dishes are squeaky clean.

Ecover Zero Dish Liquid 750ml RM19.90

I personally would recommend this for those who have sensitive skin or babies in the house. I am really glad that Ecover has created such an amazing formulation. For me, what is most important is that it is gentle enough for my family and yet effective enough for me to get things done. These products does just that!
