Hypno Birthing “The Gentle Birthing Bootcamp”

63686_10150113671573092_589283091_7589404_3900708_n-thumb.jpg

Being pregnant twice in this lifetime has been truly a blessing. It has not only opened my eyes to learn how amazing the role of Mothers are. Ever since being a mom, I have always seek to give my children the very best I can. Today, I would like to share with you something I perceived to be a magical knowledge that I wished I had the opportunity to have learnt when I was pregnant.

❤️

It was only recently, I came across HypnoBirthing. Like many, I myself was curious to learn more about the choices of birthing we have as mothers. AND HypnoBirthing is actually all about JUST THAT.
As what I have recently found out, the name itself/association with hypnosis raises many misconceptions. Hence, I wish to share this out to all as I have learnt that there will be an upcoming bootcamp to share some love and spread awareness to all.
Here’s a little bit of information about what I have learnt thus far.
❤️
Hypnosis is NOT : 
– losing control of your mind
– revealing family secrets or bank account details 😛
– an eerie, trance-like state
In fact, you are fully in control and it is a very natural state of the mind. Daily examples of hypnosis is daydream, driving on auto-pilot, engrossed watched TV, the state between half asleep and half awake (so at least 2x a day before we fall asleep and before we become fully awake).
❤️
HypnoBirthing is NOT:
– water birth or home birth. Majority of HypnoBirthing mums birth in hospital – dry birth
 ❤️
How Does HypnoBirthing Work
 
HypnoBirthing works on both the conscious and subconscious mind – which is way more powerful than conscious mind.
Conscious mind – knowledge on natural birth process and thorough preparation for their birth – birth plan, nutrition, exercise, birth companion role, bonding with baby, body’s perfect design of birth so mums feel confident in their innate ability to birth
Subconscious mind – Fear release through hypnosis – releasing all subconscious fear + daily practising of positive affirmations of birth so the WHOLE mind becomes positive.
The body is a robot of the mind – once mum has a positive mindset, her body will follow suit. Body reacts positively when it is time to birth and relaxes so baby comes easily.
HypnoBirthing  has a 12.5 hour highly comprehensive childbirth preparation class. A usual hospital antenatal class spends 1-2 hours on birth. That is not enough.
Teaching many techniques too – breathing, relaxation, deepening relaxation, visualisation & affirmations. The Gentle Birth Bootcamp is a 3 hour sharing on positive birth.
❤️

Background on The Gentle Birth Bootcamp

The objective of this bootcamp is to raise public awareness of the importance of a gentle birth experience for the whole family. There are also many things that new parents are unaware of. Simple knowledge that could make a BIG difference in how their experience can go.
Baby With Bee is an independent antenatal education provider that teaches parents things that are not normally taught in typical hospital antenatal classes. Teaching a childbirth technique called HypnoBirthing and other baby-centered classes like infant massage, breastfeeding and newborn care classes are also apart of their program.
❤️
More on Gentle Birth
The topics that covered during the bootcamp include:
– what is gentle birth
– why is it important
– how your birth choices impact your breastfeeding success
– what is HypnoBirthing and how it can help you achieve an easier, more comfortable birth
– Birth positions
– how to prepare your birth plan
– chance to listen to sharing of positive birth stories by couples who have been there & DID IT!
– infant massage and why it is important
Did you know that birth positions can make a lot of difference to a laboring mother’s level of comfort? My baby girl was a breach baby and somehow it did take a toll on my back when I was pregnant with her. Despite that, I too had a very narrow pelvis to begin with hence, in the end I had not much of a choice but to opt for C-Sec for both my children.
Did you know that there are many ways that a birth companion can help during labor? Dads love to be part of the birth process but are often reduced to being part of the wall flower, just trying to stay out of the way and not faint. During HypnoBirthing class, they teaches dads what to do to care and support and encourage their wives. Dads are very empowered with the knowledge they gain from classes and go on to be very hands on fathers.
There are so much more to share and they would be doing so in the upcoming Bootcamp event
unnamed
 “The Gentle Birth Bootcamp” which will be held on the 14th May 2017 at Bukit Kiara Equestrian Club.
Ticket Pricing
It is a highly subsided event, made possible with the support of sponsors and they are charging a minimal of RM 80 per couple but currently they are offering an extended early bird fees of only RM 50 per couple or RM 80 per 2 couples. *Not sure when this lasts, so be sure to be quick to reserve your spot with them*
For further information you can check out their website over at www.babywithbee.com.
And if you do have the time.. check out this cool Video.
Hopefully, the information above inspire you as much as it had inspired me. Now, I can’t help but cheekily wonder how fun it would be if I am pregnant once again. 😍 #justsaying

Bowhouse Pet Salon

BowhousePetSalon8

Mochi has been with us the family for over a year now. She came to us on a very special day, Easter. She was a tiny little fur ball and only weighs less than 500 gram and was the size of my palm. A new member 🐶

BowhousePetSalon9

Today, she has grown to weigh 3.8kg. A smaller sized shih-tzu breed compared to others. She was born on February 8th 2016 (herself and her younger sister). For some odd reason, she came out to be the smaller one despite being elder.

12814015_10154026209148092_5665681521282644314_n

It was instant. The connection we had was unbreakable. She got along so well with the family and everyone loves her to bits.

As the days goes by, months and now a year..

BowhousePetSalon7

I have always wanted to give her optimum care and love the best way I can (I spoil her just like another kid in the house) . It was tough as I searched for a Pet Sitter when we had to go away for a couple of days and we can’t bring her along with us. I have to say, I had experienced a fair share of unfortunate pet sitters. Some places gave her ticks (it shouldn’t have but it did) , some had accidentally hurt her, and she was disgracefully dirty when I picked her up. I feel it is a little sad that this occurred while these Pet sitters had promised me the best of the best treatment but I was truly disappointed at the end of the day with their services.

Thankfully, I found Bowhouse Pet Salon.

BowhousePetSalon1

Bowhouse Pet Salon is a place for our four-legged friends to play calmly, socialize and be pretty! They provide dog grooming service, daycare and boarding while making sure they have a good time at our playground!

BowhousePetSalon12

I sent my little fur ball there for a couple of days this month as I had to travel up North. Needless to say, she had so much fun she had over there mingling with her four legged friends. I love the spacious environment they provide as well as the play pan style boarding hence the dogs are not caged up all the time and get to roam around freely with a Pet Sitter present.

BowhousePetSalon4

Before picking her up, they gave her an awesome bath and fluff.

IMG_5732

She was in cloud nine by the time they finished.

I am truly grateful and thankful to have found Bowhouse and I can truly see the difference as when I bring my fluff ball there to visit/grooming as compared to any other Pet Salon. Some places, before bringing her inside she starts whining.

Bowhouse on the contratry provides great effort in understanding your pet and going that extra mile to provide them with love, care and provide one-to-one focus on your dog’s interaction, temperament and behavior be it when they are running around or even on the grooming table.

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.

img_0004

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.

img_0008

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. 

img_0011

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. 

img_0005

Luminous Serum

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.

BioActive Day Moisturizer

Loaded with Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and natural botanical active ingredients such as Olive Leaf Extract, Grapeseed Extract, and Vitamin E, this moisturiser aggressively increases skin firmness and makes skin more youthful and glowing. Best part is, this moisturiser comes with SPF20 as well.

This product brightens and hydrates the skin each night with rejuvenating active ingredients such as organic virgin coconut oil, argan oil, yam bean, and hyaluronic acid. Upon using this product in the evening, I noticed how every morning, my skin seems a lot more supple and radiant.

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.

Happy Treats for Mochi

img_0008

It’s finally the holidays and despite being silly with my kids, read, colour and mess up the house…

We decided to whip up our imagination and make something for the youngest member also known as our little fur kid..

img_0010

What makes the fur kid happy… Treats, Treats and MORE Treats.. so i guess it was pretty easy for us to decide on what we should make..

We wanted to make something pretty easy, healthy, and a big bonus would be to improve her breath. Don’t get me wrong, she smells like a furry princess already but there’s always no harm to make her smelling that bit extra fresh. 😛

*excuse my bland no make up look.. been down with a cold and fever since the weekend and am still recovering >.<*

img_0013

img_0002

With simple yet basic ingredients i did all the chopping (sorry kids, no playing with sharp objects in the kitchen especially the knives) while the kids did their job in mixing, mashing and fixing up the dough together.

img_0003

Ingredients we used are :

1 packet of Apple Mint Herbs

1 packet of Peppermint Herbs

1 bottle of Only Organic Baby Food Puree in Pumpkin & Wild Rice Flavour

2 Small Bananas

1 cup of whole wheat flour

1/4 spoon of baking powder

A pinch of cinnamon powder

img_0004

img_0005

It was ridiculously easy as all we did was mix up all the ingredients above together, shape them up and using a fork we pressed them down on the tray.

Results : House smells AMAZING!!! 

Verdict : Yup.. no doubt she loves them!

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!

#loccitanemalaysia #giftedwithlove #loccitanegifting

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! 🙂

 

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!

5 Top Momma Website i just can’t get enough off…

InspirationsToday it’s all about inspirations…

I love to be inspired and constantly search online for inspiration. Like many Mothers i try to find relevance to be able to relate and be inspired as a whole, be in in terms of health, fashion, fitness, food, lifestyle and more. Thanks to technology and fast internet + data i am constantly on the roll of things today even with two active bumble bee children and an adorable pet dog.

Today, i’m sharing with all my top 5 favourite Momma Website that i often read…

Cheeserland – A fashion blogger turned Mom to two beautiful children, a personal friend and neighbour, plus one of the most famous yet longest blogger i know and followed. She has been one true inspiration that had me started this website to build, groom and grow as a person. As many local readers already know, she is truly an inspiration to many around the world (especially our local Malaysians and her extended fans over in Japan). What’s there not to love~ it’s cheesie!

Startamomblog – A mom to two beautiful little girls and the wife to a wonderful man. She inspires Mothers from all around the world to start a mom blog by guiding them with various tips and tricks while specific yet useful advice for moms to handle situations better with their children. Suzi, the author is one of the sweetest, kind, and savvy person i know (plus she is known as one amazing engineer blogger) . If you need some tips or any advice on creating a mom blog, her blog is most certainly one place you ought to visit!

Rane Chin – Also known as The Beauty Junkie from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. An inspiring yet elegant mom for 2 beautiful daughters with the latest updates on beauty, trends and gigs in town. If you haven’t seen her blog do scroll and take a look for yourself. :p

Laurenne Hopkins – I have been a silent reader of Laurenne for the longest time. The first blog i followed of hers was known as This Mummy and ever since she migrated, i find her articles has grown along with her. A mother of 2 little girls and a new born baby boy she is still as inspiring as ever. Her articles goes a long way with parenting advice and experiences, recipes, DIY and more.

Mommy My Way – A beautiful lady and single mom whom i am totally inspired by. Her blogs shares the way she raises her infant son through career advice, traveling tips, fashion inspiration and more, all while juggling a full-time job and working toward an MBA. Mind you, this brilliant lady is also an entrepreneur plus she also holds a support group in Facebook for like minded Mothers while spreading her love, support and knowledge about blogging to all. An inspiring person she is both inside and outside. *heart*

I hope this article can spark some light to some of you here as these beautiful ladies inspired me so much. 🙂

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.

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

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).

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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)
