Mommy's Beauty Kit by CeraVe

ChickAdvisor has been spoiling me lately. I was fortunate enough to be selected to try and review three CeraVe products via amazing Chickadvisor Product Review Club offer.

CeraVe developed with dermatologists is the first brand to contain essential ceramides, cholesterol and fatty esters that healthy skin needs. You can read little more about company, their idea and products on their website here.

Studying products very carefully :)
Very curios to see what's inside. 
Today I will talk/write about these three CeraVe products, that I was testing:

  • ) Diaper Rash Cream 
  • ) Intensive Stretch Marks Cream
  • ) Eye Repair Cream

First on the line is CeraVe Bebe diaper rash creme:

This product will take care of your baby's diaper rash that we know may appear here and there. Enhanced with InvisibleZinc, Vitamin E and Dimethicone, this cream helps seal of wetness and calm irritated skin. It also works to prevent unwanted and unpleasant rashes. 
It's important to know that cream doesn't contain paraben, sulfate, fragrance, gluten.
As mentioned above, cream doesn't have any scent, it has a very light texture and won't leave messy and annoying product stains. I love how easy it is to apply it and that all it will leave is clear and invisible protection layer. I'm a huge fan of non pasty texture. 
Earlier this week we returned home from our vacation. We had a long flight and after all the travelling and being on the road thing, my daughter developed minor diaper rash. So I decided that this is the perfect time for us to put the product in use. I will repeat myself about how much I loved the texture and appearance of the product. Rash was gone in no time, next morning there was no trace of it!
We don't really get diaper rashes, only on few occasions, but I've been using diaper rash creams to avoid unpleasant surprises. I was always turned off by a very thick, pasty, messy rash creams. I'm happy to say, this is the one for us! And very possible for you too. 
I would recommend all moms and dads to try this one, it might just change your world :)

Let's continue with CeraVe Intensive Stretch Marks Cream:

Just like the product above, Cerave Intensive Stretch Marks Cream is fragrance, paraben, sulfate and gluten free. It contains all the good ingredients - argan oil, hyaluronic acid, essential ceramides, peptide, botanical complex and many others. For more detailed information visit their website, where you can also find what is each components task.
This products main goal is to help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and to improve skins hydration and elasticity. 
Cream has a very light and almost watery aka hydrating texture. Very easy to apply, it's not greasy, not sticky nor it's thick, like other stretch mark creams might be. Cream absorbs fast (one of my favorite things about it), so you won't have to wait awhile before putting your clothes on and being worried about staining them. 
Products unique formula keeps skin hydrated for up to 24hours after just one application!
You can apply it as often you need or find it necessary, twice a day is all I really need. My pregnancy has left me with very few, almost invisible stretch marks (Thank you skin for being this flexible ;) ). So at the moment for me this cream works as a tool to keep my skin hydrated, healthy and elastic, and to prepare it for second pregnancy that is planned for the near future. Here you go, the secret is out!  
I remember using all kinds of stretch mark creams while I was pregnant, just to prevent them. With today's knowledge in available products I would probably go with CeraVe cream for the reasons I mentioned above. While pregnant I was sensitive to smells and I couldn't find a good cream that would have been fragrance free. I remember not liking all the greasy products, wait time for cream to absorb, stickiness. If that's something you don't want to deal with, I would recommend to give CeraVe Intensive Stretch Marks cream a try. Plus in the packaging you will find discount coupons for your next stretch marks cream or any CeraVe bebe product. Who doesn't like to save some money?!

And the last but not the least of CeraVe products this time is Eye Repair Cream:
With CeraVe Eye Repair Cream you wont need to hide behind sunglasses. 

Specially formulated with ceramides and hyaluronic acid, CeraVe Eye Repair Cream is designed to visibly reduce dark circles and puffiness as it repairs and restores the delicate skin barrier around your eyes.
Another amazing CeraVe product with bunch of great ingredients that you can find listed on their website here. This product just like the other ones I reviewed above, is non-irritating, hypoallergenic, fragrance, paraben and sulfate free.
Product has a very light texture, that is easy to apply, it absorbs really fast and doesn't leave a greasy trace. Cream is recommend to be used twice a day. As you will require very little amount of product per use, tube will last you a good while. "Nose" of the tube will help you to apply necessary amount of cream avoiding waste of the product. 
I would recommend to look into proper eye cream application prior usage. Biggest mistake we tend to make is applying cream very close to an eye, that way sometimes causing irritation. I will add photos for better understanding. 
So I have been using this cream for about a week now and I can see the difference, especially in my morning look. Skin around my eyes really looks more healthier, smoother and brighter. Fine lines I have seem little less visible. I believe there might be even better results after longer use of the product.
The left side would be the right one.  Use your orbital bone as your guideline, there is no need to apply cream higher than that. Use your ring finger for gentler touch. And then just with tapping motion gently apply product under the eye, don't rub or pull, as skin under the eye is very delicate.
 Don't do the right side application, cream is way too close to your eye. 

I hope you enjoyed my post and please share your experience with CeraVe product in comments section, I would love to hear what you have to say.

Ice Balls

This time few words about Bar Brat product campaign I took part via Tomoson review site.
So it's Ice Ball Maker that creates four 4.5 cm ice balls.

So the process actually is very easy and simple, and product box also provides easy to understand instructions. 
So all you have to do is to fill bottom tray 3/4 (wash the tray prior using) and then press the top tray into the bottom one (there might be little spillage). After that is done, all what's left is freezer time 4 to 6hours and after that you're good to go. 

Ice balls like this will keep your drink colder for longer time as ice balls will melt much slower than regular ice cubes. It will also add style to your drink if I can say that :) 
I would prefer little bigger tray though. I would love to have at least 6 or 8 ice ball tray. 
Bar Brat also suggest to make coffee creamer balls for iced coffees, mint and fruit balls for sangrias or other cocktails, even popsicles. 
Overall a fun and practical product. Great for entertaining guest and would work great as a gift too.
