Lamazuna: des produits Bio et Vegan pour une Beauté au naturel

Cela fait super longtemps que je n’ai pas parlé beauté au naturel mais aussi et surtout que je n’ai pas écrit en français! Du coup, tu vois, cela me fait tout drole. Lamazuna, c’est mon coup de coeur. J’aime la personnalité de la marque et son engagement, j’aime les couleurs exotiques, le logo et tout le dynamisme qui s’en dégage. Ok, tu vas me dire c’est bien d’aimer le branding mais ce n’est pas ce qui fait le produit. Attends, j’y arrive. Lamazuna c’est une marque française qui propose des produits écologiques et naturels de soins de beauté. Je ne sais pas si tu te souviens de mes poudres ayurvédiques de chez aromazone et de mes essais de savons. Moi, je m’en souviens et avec l’arrivée de Bébé numéro 3, j’ai du mettre de côté mes tubes à essais et faire confiance à une marque écolonomique. Il était hors de question pour moi de retourner au shampoing industriel et autres donc j’ai fait quelques recherches et j’ai trouvé Lamazuna! Et quand j’ai découvert leur superbe gamme …

5 Good reasons to delay Newborn’s First Bath

Baby’s first bath is one of this thing that can be really worrying for first time parents. When I was a Nurse/Midwife student, I remember we were bathing newborn babies on Day 1 in postnatal ward with their mom. The main goal was to simply show how to do and to tone down it. It can be quite impressive to handle such a little human being for first time parents. When I gave birth to Baba1 in York back in 2011, I asked if I could give a bath to my baby in the postnatal ward. Why? Simply because for me, it was like this. We bath baby after delivery. This was what I learnt and what I saw all my little life. The answer shocked me. I could not give a bath to my baby and I begged someone to show me and be with me for the first bath. I know it is quite funny as I have bathed so many newborns but was so anxious for mine! As I explained in one of …

Green Beauty: Bye bye shower gels, Friendly Soap now takes care of all my tribe!

It is a long time I have not shared with you a bit of green beauty tips. Did I stop? Absolutely not. I have been just very busy testing a lot of fabulous products for my family and I. As a good tester, I take my time to gather a maximum of informations and share with you an in-depth experience. Because beauty is a bit complicated and beauty products have a tendency to be very good when you start with them and after few weeks of use, you can get very confused and change your mind. Are you a shower gel addict/user? This simple question can elevate a lot of opinions. Most of people love them and swear just by them. Did you know that: “Gels first appeared in British bathrooms in the Seventies. Today (2011) some 200 million bottles are sold in Britain every year”* There was a time, I loved them and used them a lot. My favorite ones were those of well know french fragrance designers. I enjoyed the fact that they always leave …

Third Trimester Pregnancy Essentials {Mia and Dom Review}

This week, I am sharing a lot about pregnancy. Why? As it begins to take most of my mind and time. And Friday is our Pampering day as usual! One of the recurrent third trimester symptom if we can call it this way as for me it is not a symptom but an unavoidable consequence: STRETCH MARKS and itchy bump. I did not mention it in my third trimester symptoms blogpost, simply because it is just something that is going to happen anyway. Is It the truth? Not at all. It depends on your skin really and you can put as many creams as you want, from the most expensive to the cheapest, it is written in your body: if you have to stretch , you will stretch. No Myths, no Miracle products, just the truth as always. About 90% of women get pregnancy stretch marks, even if they’ve never had stretch marks before. So to say that they are common is an understatement. But what you can do is help your skin and ease the itchiness …

My Baby SPA routine at home {Review of StorkSak Organics Baby Spa Gift Set}

Family time are part of these enjoyable moments in life. We try, the best we can, to have some magic moment with each of our daughter. I love building memories with them by adding to their repertories some new tastes, scents, sounds, anything really as I realise every day how simple things in my childhood always come to my mind in a flash back : the smell of mint tea always reminds me our holidays… fresh bread recalls me to the Sunday’s morning awakening when my mother used to prepare us Moroccan bread. Bath time, being one of this rare instant between my babies and I for relaxing and bonding in a more intense one-to-one relation, I have established once a week a really Baby Spa at home. We try not to waste water and to use it moderately so usually our daughters have showers like Bath during the week but the week-end {day depending in my mood and strength}, they have a lovely long bath followed by a message session with a very special and dedicated guest : ME! Regarding Baba1 allergies and skin …

Anti-redness Skincare Routine of the moment: very dry and sensitive Skin

  Hi Lovely’s! Hope you are all fine this morning.  Next week I will be chatting a lot about Real nappies simply because I use and love them and It will be Real Nappy Week 2016. So, I thought that I will post today my skincare routine and some other natural beauty remedies to punctuate the week. Because yes I am a FULL-TIME mum but I am also a WOMAN. And life is all about balance, and taking care of yourself is as important to take care of others. Pregnancy is a really enjoyable period of life but sometimes brings some skin issues like brown patches and other skin condition. As far as I am concerned I always suffered with very dry, extremely sensitive skin subject to redness. And as far as I remember it started in my early twenties {Hmmmm, I am not 20 anymore…} I tried a lot of branded skincare creams to try to ease this itchiness and redness, one of which is Avene® anti-Redness/Redness Relief Range. It is the one I …
