Johnson’s Baby – Are You Caring For His Skin The Right Way?

I suffer from atopic eczema so since Liam was born, I’ve always wanted to learn more about caring for his gentle, baby skin. It seems that the universe heard me, as I got the chance to attend Johnson’s Baby event called “Are You Caring For His Skin The Right Way?”.

# – Are You Caring For His Skin The Right Way?

A collaboration between Johnson’s Baby and Doktorbudak (a volunteer-based online collaboration among children’s health specialists to answer questions on children’s health), “Are You Caring For His Skin The Right Way?” was an interactive workshop organised to share practical tips and expert advice with moms on how to care for baby’s delicate skin during the Urban Mom 2014 road-show.

The workshop featured two paediatricians, Dr Aileen Wee and Dr Yap Hsiao Ling, who gave all the mothers in attendance, myself included tips and advice ranging from healthy skin development for babies to age-appropriate skincare.

Did you know that baby skin is 30% thinner than adult skin, and loses water more quickly during the first 12 months of his life? No, I didn’t!

There are so many products out there in the market these days claiming benefits for your baby but rather than relying on a label that says ‘natural’ or ‘organic’, we should review the product from the perspective of mildness and safety as well as scientific evidence. Based on a Johnson’s Baby research, babies cleansed with Johnson’s Baby Top to Toe Wash showed no difference in several key indicators when compared to those who had been cleansed only with water, which indicates that Johnson’s® Baby Top to Toe Wash is as mild on skin as water!

To be frank, am not surprised because I still wash my hair with Johnson’s baby shampoo these days when I feel like my mane needs a break from harsh products, hehe.

All in all, I’ve learnt that choosing the right skincare for your baby, especially in the first months after birth can help prevent irreversible skin damage such as redness and itching, dryness, scaling and roughness and tightness after washing.

The products should be safe with all its ingredients serving a purpose that is supported by scientific evidence, tested with rigorous standards that meet or exceed accepted levels for safety. This includes the packaging and even the inks used for printing!

Of course, the products must also be mild and effective, proven with the help of independent experts to assess the product’s potential – from the cleansing agents to the fragrance and even its bubbles – to ensure products do not cause redness, stinging and irritation on baby’s skin, hair and eyes while effectively clean baby’s skin.

I learnt so much! The highlight of the workshop was a baby massage demonstration led by Dr Yap!

# – My favourite part – the baby massage demo.

Baby massage is supposed to reduce colic, encourage better growth and improve sleep. I am not sure about the first two, but Liam has definitely slept better since I applied the massage techniques I learnt from the demo.

# – I pretended it was Liam lol.

On behalf of Liam, I’d like to say he loveeeees Johnson’s Baby Bedtime range, with Natural Calm essence. This product range is supposed to soothe and promote a more restful sleep for babies.

For real? Just check out Liam’s syiok face.

# – So syiok.

My choice for my precious Liam is none other than Johnson’s Baby.

I love Tesco Online Malaysia’s mobile app!

It’s happening! I have started to waddle #pregnancy

These days, a trip to the grocery store is not really my cup of tea anymore. I much prefer to vege out on my sofa reading 50 Shades of Grey, which is the only literature my pregnant mushy brains could process nowadays.

Thank goodness Tesco has a great online shopping service and I don’t even need to get off my butt to use the computer as Tesco Online Malaysia has an amazing mobile app that works brilliantly.

# – Tesco Online Malaysia mobile app on my smartphone.

Now I can have essentials delivered right to my doorstep.

# – Simple and straight-forward interface.

The app loads incredibly fast, very easy to use and very practical. Best of all, you can scan your Tesco card straight onto the app, so there’s no need for tedious typing of the membership number.

There’s also this nifty product barcode scan feature on the app that is so useful! Lets say you’re at a friend’s house and you spotted something from Tesco that you would like to buy for yourself in the future, just use the app to scan it and save it to a list for future purchases.

# – Voila…all done. Now just make sure someone’s available at the delivery time to receive the goods.

Thank you Tesco Online Malaysia, works everytime!

Shopping online with Tesco Malaysia – the best so far!

If you searched for “Tesco” on my blog, you will find that I have over 11 pages worth of blog posts with at least a mention of my favourite store. Yes, I am a huge fan of Tesco and so is my husband. We’ve shopped at Tesco for almost 10 years!

Our favourite section? Tesco Finest of course. But we also regularly buy staples like bread, cleaning solutions, toilet/kitchen rolls, wipes, sundries, fresh meat, toiletries and many more from Tesco.

I also LOVEEEEEE Tesco’s undies from their home brand F&F! #truestory

# – Me and my Tesco card!

Imagine our happiness when Tesco started implementing an online storefront at http://eshop.tesco.com.my/

The husband used to shop online on Tesco all the time when he was still in UK and it was one thing he really missed – getting groceries delivered right to his doorstep. Now, we can enjoy the same privilege in Malaysia!

To be honest, I was quite nervous initially about the entire shopping experience. But my first online shopping experience with Tesco proved me wrong – it was straight-forward, easy and entirely free of stress. Don’t believe me?

Check out Tesco Delivery Lab to learn about the entire process.

# – Tesco Delivery Lab website…a fun and quick way to see how your entire online shopping experience at Tesco will be like; from product selections to processing to delivery to reaching your door.

Did you know that your groceries are handpicked and are selected based on the highest level of freshness? Also, all Tesco delivery trucks are outfitted with three temperature controlled compartments – Frozen (-16°C), Chilled (2°C), and Ambient (25°C)– to ensure that goods are delivered safe, fresh, and on time.

# – Check out the cool delivery truck that came to my house recently. You can clearly see the frozen, chilled and ambient compartments.

When shopping online with Tesco, you can choose to pay with credit card upon checking out of the website or pay with credit card upon delivery of goods. There is no cash involved, so it makes all transactions safe and reliable.

I must say Tesco has the best delivery staff too! They are always so friendly and helpful, never failed to carry all my goods inside :)

# – Thank you Tesco man!

Recently, I have been enjoying online shopping on Tesco using their incredibly well-made mobile app too! Seriously one of the best mobile shopping app in the market right now.But I’ll talk about that abit later.

# – Yes, indeed this has brought Tesco to my doorstep :)

Thank you Tesco for making my shopping experience with you even better now!
