Tips for Buying Boys' Clothes

Children grow so fast and whether they are getting ready for summer, going back to school or getting ready for the cold months, they will usually need new clothes having outgrown the ones you bought a few months ago. For me, it's easier to shop for girls' clothes than boys'. Aside from the fact that almost all children's stores offer a wide variety of styles and designs for girls, they are more patient when it comes to shopping and trying on clothes.

Most boys don't really care about their clothes. So long as they have something to wear and they are comfortable, they're okay. If you are shopping for them and you have them in tow, that could be a real challenge. Boys don't have the patience to visit several stores, so you better have those measurements and sizes ready. That way, you won't have to spend a long time in the store. Also make sure that you have a list of what you need, so you can easily check the items as you shop.





While it's a good idea to buy clothes that are a size bigger, don't risk it with seasonal items. Like for example, you want to buy a pair of boots for winter because it is on sale; you have to keep in mind that boys grow at unpredictable rates and there is a great chance those boots won't fit come winter time.

Nowadays, many people are preferring to shop online because of convenience. Aside from saving their sanity from having to deal with impatient boys, there are no traffic and parking problems to think about. ZALORA is my go to shop when it comes to clothing. They offer a wide range of clothing for children that are stylish and affordable. You can check out their collection here.

My Thoughts

The shampoo has an earthy and fresh scent. It's hard to describe, but I really like it. The conditioner also smells great. It's lavender and vanilla - you'll fall in love with the scent.

The husband has thinning hair, so I made him use the shampoo. It's only been a few days and albeit no new hair has grown (yet), he says he can feel that his hair is stronger and there is less hair fall. His hair also looks healthier. He also loves the earthy/fresh scent.

I was the one who tried the conditioner. Aside from the lovely scent, I love how it deeply moisturizes. My hair stayed soft and smooth all day. I've got thick and wavy hair, but the conditioner tamed the curls.

Radha Beauty's Clearing Serum {Review}


Ever since I started reviewing products more than a year ago, I often have the opportunity to test and review beauty products complimentary in exchange for my honest opinion of the product. Today's beauty product is the Clearing Serum by Radha Beauty. I am not new to this brand and to tell you honestly, I love their products.





Product Description

The Radha Beauty Professional Age-Defying Skin Clearing Serum will help reverse the signs of aging while improving blemished skin and hyperpigmentation. In this powerful serum sulfur penetrates and creates elasticity while Niacinamide takes the red out and prevents inflammation that underlies all troubled skin issues. 20% Vitamin C repairs micro scarring, reverses sun damage, provides significant natural sun protection and rapidly creates smooth supple glowing skin. Stealthy superior retinol and salicylic acid unclog pores, heal acne, speed cellular turnover, and undo the signs of aging skin.

My Thoughts

The serum has a very strong herbal scent that is similar to tea tree oil. There is also a light floral smell that mixes with the herbal scent. The scent is rather strong, but it is not offensive. I kind of like the smell actually.

The serum has a nice consistency and it is not sticky. It is absorbed quickly and it dries fast. It is gentle on the skin, it is not drying and I did not break out. Although my skin is not really sensitive, there are a few products that I've tried that had me breaking out. This one didn't. In fact, I love how it keeps my skin moisturized and supple.

It's only been a few days and I'm already in love with this product. I can't believe that my enlarged pores appear smaller! The fine lines around my eyes have softened as well. I am so sure this serum will continue to amaze me in the weeks to come.

Overall, this is one great beauty product and it definitely deserves a spot in my skincare regimen. If you are wanting to combat the early signs of aging and bring back the glow of your skin, this serum by Radha is worth giving a try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Clearing Serum through the Radha Beauty website and on Amazon. It is fairly priced at $22.89.

Disclosure: I received a sample of this product free of charge for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own and was in no way influenced by anyone or the brand.

Wearing Black and White?

Stick with solids because it whittles the middle. Blouses with busy textures like lace can blur the outline of the waist, causing the middle to look thick. 



Whereas a solid white top creates the illusion of a more defined silhouette, which highlights the dip in at the waist, so it looks thinner.

Wearever Leak-Control Underwear for Men and Women of All Ages Review + Giveaway

Yay! Today I am reviewing another great product from Wearever, the Women's Super Incontinence Panties.




Product Description:

Wearever Women’s Super Incontinence Panties offer twice as much protection as our already reliable panties. With the same comfort, style and reusability the Wearever brand has always delivered, reusable incontinence underwear are both an economical and reliable alternative to disposable incontinence products. Our Super Incontinence Panties offer more protection than our regular Women’s Cotton Comfort Incontinence Panties and are soft, silky cotton/poly jersey with an Agion™ antimicrobial fiber, which reduces odor-causing bacteria. This pair of incontinence panties has a waterproof outer layer, which prevents leakage and provides you with double the protection. Wearever’s Unique-Dri™ super absorbent, sewn-in pad, traps liquid and provides all-day protection. Our incontinence panties require no extra inserts or disposable pads and offer twice as much absorption as our Wearever Panty L-1. These Super Incontinence Panties are machine washable and last up to 250 washes! Patent: #8123,735 B2

My Thoughts

Just like their other products that I have tried, this one didn't disappoint. The material used is very soft and light. The thickness is also perfect and I love the comfort of wearing these panties. It's just like wearing regular panties, but without feeling the moisture. I suffer from very light incontinence and although panty shields work for me, wearing incontinence panties is a lot more comfortable.

If you are looking for a good underwear to protect you from surprise leaks, I would recommend giving Wearever products a try. They offer a lot designs for both men and women.

Refresh Eye Recovery Serum {Review} #refresheyeserum

There is no doubt that cucumber and potato juice both work to eliminate dark circles and puffy eyes, but a good eye serum is not as messy. I was recently given the opportunity to review the Eye Recovery Serum by [Re]Fresh. I am not new to this brand and I love their products, that is why I was so excited to try the eye serum.



Product Description

This is our newest product - due to launch March 9th! However, we want to reach out to bloggers and see how you like the product and can introduce it to your readers. Sorry, the product photo is still being worked on, so this not the final image, by any means.

Refresh's Peptide+ Intense Eye Recovery serum is a dynamic and effective dark circle elimination treatment. Using an active ingredient mix of purified soy, rice and yeast peptides, the formula positively stimulates blood circulation away from the eyes to dramatically reduce dark circles and puffiness.

Benefits

• Reduces dark circles and puffiness around the eyes
• Restores important moisture levels
• Soothes and softens the skin
• Is safe and gentle to use around the eyes






My Thoughts

I'm glad that I'm one of the first to have tried the serum as it was only launched recently. As a blogger, I work late nights. I need to finish the chores and see that my family's needs are met before I can start writing articles and doing reviews. Dark circles and puffy eyes are my constant companions!

The serum is unscented and it has a nice consistency. It is easy to apply and a little goes a long way. It soothes and relaxes tired eyes instantly and it didn't sting. The serum is easily absorbed and I love that it kept my eyes moisturized for hours. My skin feels soft and smooth to the touch.

I've been using the eye recovery serum for more than a week now and to everybody's surprise, my dark circles are lighter and the eye bags are smaller. The first persons to notice are my husband and daughter. I'm still watching the fine lines, but with what the serum does to my skin, I'm sure it will continue to amaze me in the weeks to come.

Recommendation

If you are looking for a product to combat puffy eyes, dark circles, crow's feet and fine lines and wrinkles, the serum is worth giving a try. It contains purified soy, rice and yeast peptides; ingredients that are known to significantly improve eye bags and erase dark circles.

Where to buy?

Product Description

  • Wizardry Jewelry Double Pack

  • Gold Plated
  • Chain Length: 23cm

My Thoughts

Both necklaces are cool! They may just be gold plated, but you can tell that they were done with care. I just hope they will not fade over time. The chains and the charms are cute and they look sturdy. They are of high quality and I'm sure they will last a long time.






My kids were thrilled that they spin! Of course, both necklaces will go to the daughter who's crazy over Harry, Hermione and Ron.

Overall, we loved the twin necklace set. If you are looking for a unique gift, these necklaces are perfect.

Vitamin C Serum for face By Radha Beauty {Review}

Nothing eliminates dark spots and gives you brighter skin than a Vitamin C Serum. Add Hyaluronic acid and you are on your way to soft, beautiful and young looking skin. Today's discussion is about the Vitamin C Serum for Face by Radha Beauty. They are so generous, I also received the Retinol Moisturizer as a bonus.





About the Product

This exquisite Vitamin C Serum is guaranteed to leave your skin radiant and more youthful looking by neutralizing free radicals & is proven to stimulate collagen & reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Infused with 20% ACTIVE VITAMIN C - Clinical strength 20% vitamin c serum for your face + vegan hyaluronic acid is the absolute highest quality vitamin c serum available.

USE WITH MOISTURIZER FOR BEST RESULTS - Use this powerful Vitamin C Serum with a high quality moisturizer like Radha Beauty Retinol Moisturizer. This cruelty free and organic Vitamin c serum does not contain alcohol, parabens or sulfates and is safe for all skin types.

My Thoughts

I love that this serum is bottled nicely. I tried a lot of Vitamin C Serums and most of them were simply packed in brown bottles with glass droppers. This product looks expensive, but actually, it is not. And it comes with a pump! I like that, so you can easily dispense the serum. The serum is unscented and is colorless. It also has a nice consistency and is not sticky. It's easy to apply, dries up fast and is absorbed quickly. As soon as you have finished applying, you can feel how soft and smooth your skin becomes.




Along with the serum, I also received a Retinol Moisturizer. I used it after the serum and it kept my face supple and plump all day. I love that it didn't leave my face looking greasy.





Overall, these two products work effectively at moisturizing the skin. I like how it keeps my skin hydrated. If you are looking for skin care products to brighten age spots, minimize the appearance of pores, moisturize skin and erase the early signs of aging, these two are worth giving a try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Vitamin C Serum for face and the Retinol Moisturizer through their Radha Beauty website and on Amazon.
