Genius Product! Nivea In-Shower Rich Body Lotion Skin Conditioner for Very Dry Skin featuring #NIVEAduckie

Nivea In-Shower Rich Body Lotion Skin Conditioner for Very Skin, Nivea In-Shower Rich Body Lotion, Nivea In-Shower Rich Body Lotion Skin Conditioner review, #NIVEAduckie, blue rubber duck, nivea best product

At the start of my maternity leave at 34 weeks, I was doing lots of things from nesting activities to discovering a love for baking to going out to meet friends for lunch / brunch / dinner / shopping dates.  In between those busy moments, I still found time to blog.  But then, as soon as I reached the 36 week stage, all my best laid plans came to a halt as I physically could not keep up and I was cancelling dates left, right and centre and now, I am virtually a prisoner in my own home!!!  Luckily, my Mum flew in from Scotland just in time to take care of me and pamper to all my needs!  Yay!  All I have been doing these days is sleeping, eating, scratching my itchy stretch marks and playing Candy Crush (yes, I am back on that stupid addictive game again!!).  My energy levels are low but that is probably partially due to the low iron levels in my blood as confirmed by the doctor yesterday.  Le sigh.  Anyway, that is my pregnancy update for now…

As for today’s blog post, I was triggered to write about Nivea In-Shower Rich Body Lotion Skin Conditioner after receiving this cute rubber duck #NIVEAduckie in the mail this week.  I was like, “Oh, it’s a rubber duck from Nivea – how cute.  Oh wait a minute, I should write a review on that Nivea shower moisturiser if I have the energy tomorrow…”, so here I am today – Yay!!

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas With Kiehl’s

Kiehl's Christmas gift box set

Here’s a little fact of today which will FREAK you out…  There are only 36 more sleeps till Christmas!!!  And in 6 weeks (plus 1 day), we start the NEW YEAR – 2014!!!  Isn’t that crazy?  Okay, maybe I’m the only one who has not registered this in my head till today… after all, I have been living a “hermit” lifestyle for the last couple of weeks since my maternity leave kicked in and I haven’t really gone out much so yeah, I haven’t even seen a Christmas tree yet!  Or maybe I have, but I have baby blinkers on…??  Anyway, I only realised that Christmas was round the corner when I received this Christmassy package from Kiehl’s – a beautiful red box wrapped in a white bow – which prompted me to sing “It’s beginning to look like a lot like Christmas…” and that’s all the lyrics I know to that song :P

So what was inside my special Kiehl’s box…?

Review : Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress

Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress

Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress was kindly sent to me during the middle of my second trimester after the lovely people at Pevonia read that I had been through a rather stressful first trimester (with all-day morning sickness and my high risk genetic CVS screening).

Prior to trying this product, I hadn’t heard of the brand Pevonia before…but after doing some internet stalking on their website, I discovered that they are “an elite, organic skin care line offered by the most prestigious spas worldwide”.  With that in mind, I happily put Pevonia Micro-Emulsified Massage Oil Anti-Stress to the test to see if it helped me de-stress during my pregnancy…

Tried & Tested Trio : Moisturising Creams for Eczema

Cetaphil Restoraderm Skin Restoring Body Moisturiser, Derma E Psorzema Creme, NS-21 Skin Repair Treatment, eczema creams, best eczema cream

Did you know that this week is Eczema Awareness Week?  Yep, it’s true from 2nd to 8th September 2013.  Anyway, I have been a long-time sufferer of eczema with patches behind my knees, inner thigh, elbow, face and hands.  Sometimes I will be eczema free for months before a sudden flare-up…which is what happened to me a few months ago.  Instead of using the smelly Ego Pinetarsol Soap Free Cleansing Solution, I continued using my normal yummy-smelling Palmolive shower gel and slapped on moisturising creams targeted at eczema instead.

Here’s my reviews of the 3 eczema moisturising creams I tested out :-

The Story about Palmolive Shower Gel, My Husband, Zombies and a Cockroach…

cockroach

Warning :  This is a long story, but it is a true story.

One day in our local supermarket…

Me :  We need to buy new shower gel.
Husband :  Why?
Me :  Because we’ve ran out!  Duh!
Husband :  But you’re a beauty blogger!  Don’t brands send you shower gels???
Me :  Nope.
Husband :  Can’t you ask them to?

Me *rolls eyes* and gives Husband the “WTF?! face” and goes to look at the shower gel selection.

I scanned the shelves to see what was on special offer (yes, I am Asian like that!) and these big bottles of Palmolive Shower Gels caught my eye.  The Palmolive Invigorating Shower Gel with Pomegranate and Mango tickled my eyeballs and I sneakily took a sniff and I WAS SOLD as it smelt divine!  And yes, I actually bought the same one I sniffed – I am not THAT gross :P
