REVIEW: Babo Sun Products for the Littlest Ones in Your Life

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Tuesday, May 17, 2016, In : Product Reviews 

 

FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE and NEWBORNS+

We all know how harmful the sun can be, especially on our little one’s skin, but with all the misinformation out there it is hard to know what is the best way to protect them. Can sunscreen be applied to babies under 6 months? Should I reapply every 2 hours? Is SPF 30 going to be enough?

FOR MOMS and MOMS-TO-BE

THE COMPANY:
Kerry Gilmartin, founder and creator of Bamboobies, is a mom of three young children (all under 10), who came up with the idea after needing a solution to her “leaking problem” and for finding a pad that wouldn’t show through her shirt. After turning a square of bamboo velour fabric into a makeshift pad, she knew she was on to something.

Now, over 15 years later, and thanks to Kerry’s background in business, her initial idea of or...

FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & TODDLERS 2+

Skin issues. It seems like every person I talk to has dealt with some sort of skin problem at one point of their life or another. Whether it be as extreme as eczema or psoriasis, or your typical dry and flaky skin or scalp, no one’s skin is truly perfect. And while there are many chemical-infused products on the market that claim to target these specific issues, many of them actually cause other complications or only temporarily mask the...

Babyganics: Creating a Baby-Safe World, One Product at a Time

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Tuesday, July 7, 2015, In : Product Reviews 


FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & BABIES 0+

Nothing makes you more aware of what you put into your body than when you are pregnant, and nothing makes you more aware of the products you use around your home than when your little bundle finally arrives. Yet with so many different products out there all claiming to be good for this, or not containing that [chemical], it can be really over whelming and even downright impossible to find ones that fulfill our needs – in terms of both effec...

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, April 15, 2015, In : Product Reviews 

 

FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & BABIES 3 MONTHS+*

Spring is finally here! For most of us, any way, the weather is getting warmer, the skies are [actually] showing some blue, and the flowers are starting to bloom. Unfortunately, however, this also means that the pollen is out on full attack and those of us with allergies are probably hating life!

For me, having been born and raised in Southern California, I never experienced too much of the allergy thing. That is until I moved to Dallas – and especi...

Organic Essence: Changing the Way You View Your Body Care from the Inside, Out

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Friday, April 10, 2015, In : Product Reviews 


FOR MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE & NEWBORNS+

People all around are becoming more and more aware of what types of products they are using for their daily skin care regime and how those products are affecting their health. Especially for pregnant women and for those that are nursing, we very quickly realize that everything we put in – and on – our bodies gets directly transferred to our baby. Plus, the fact that there are more and more chemicals that are being manufactured to make us look “younger, ...

RAD Rollers: Functional Massage and Release Tools

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Tuesday, April 7, 2015, In : Product Reviews 


For MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE

There’s nothing quite like a nice, relaxing massage. Especially as a busy Mom, or one who is carrying a bun in the oven, having an hour where you get to surrender all of your thoughts and worries and just let yourself be pampered, getting rid of all those kinks and stress points, truly is a little slice of heaven.

But in reality, how often do we let ourselves have that one hour?! We feel like there is always something more important to take care of then ourselves, even i...

For MOMS, MOMS-TO-BE and NEWBORNS+

We all know how small and precious babies can be, but I think until you hold your own child for the first time, do you really understand and appreciate how truly helpless and totally reliant these little creations are. This experience will also make you think twice about everything you touch, have in your home, clean with, etc. since your overall mission quickly becomes keeping your newborn baby healthy and safe from the big and scary unknown...

Truce Cleaning Products: Naturally Clean Every Inch of Your Home

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Wednesday, May 14, 2014, In : Product Reviews 

 

FOR MOMS & MOMS-TO-BE

Growing up my mom never thought twice about the cleaning products that she used around the house. She just wanted ones that would “get the job done”. From Clorox Bleach to Windex, these were the staples that she always had on hand.

And as I grew up and began to help clean too, I knew that the scents would burn my eyes and give me a headache, and the chemicals would severely dry out my hands, but my fix was to wear gloves and to clean faster – I never thought abo...

Staying Put in Your Swimsuit – Aqua Sphere Has You Covered

Posted by Jessica Boscarini on Tuesday, December 17, 2013, In : Product Reviews 


Swimsuits are one of those things that often strike a wrong cord in a lot of us. First of all, shopping for them is never fun. The lighting is always awful, we are never tan enough, and most would say they aren’t “skinny enough” either.

Then, after we do finally decide on one, not only do we have to prance around the thing in public, we have to worry about it slipping and sliding and exposing those areas that should never see daylight.

And this was all before having kids… Add an ...
