Ziaja Baby Skincare + Giveaway

ziaja-products

A while ago I was contacted by Ziaja about their new baby skincare range.  I have tried out the soothing cream before but I was very keen on using the shampoo and bath soap.  Up until now I have only been using Aveeno bath and cream for my four year old and 20 months old. Both kids have dry skin since they were born. Matthew even had eczema but that has cleared up now.

Ziaja baby & kids lubricating bath (€6.49 / 370ml)

A new baby’s extra-delicate skin requires the purest products and should be bathed using a soap-free formula. Ziaja’s gentle lubricating bath wash is formulated without soap, colourants or preservatives to help protect babies skin from rashes, dryness and other skin condition. The ultra-mild formula gently cleanses the skin and leaves a light moisturising protective layer to prevent dryness. Gentle enough to use every day, this moisturising soap free wash naturally softens and soothes baby skin. Dermatologically and allergy tested – can be used on new-borns from day one, babies and toddlers.

Ziaja baby and kids shampoo (€6.49 / 270ml)

An everyday use shampoo that gently cleanses hair while respecting baby’s sensitive scalp. It leaves hair soft, silky and easy to brush, without causing any irritation. Enriched with chamomile extract and provitamin B5 to keep the scalp moisturised, soothed and healthy. Tear-free and colourant free formula. Recommended for babies and children from 6 months onwards.

As mentioned above we use Aveeno bath on everything. Whether it’s the body or the hair. It’s the most gentle cream for us up until now. I have used the new Ziaja kids shampoo on my four year old son Matthew. It is very easy to apply without him making any fuss.

Ziaja baby soothing cream with D-panthnol (€3.49/60ml)

This soothing cream contains 10% D-panthenol to treat baby rashes and areas of dry cracked skin on the body that need extra gentle care. The deeply moisturising formula softens and nourishes baby’s delicate skin by creating a barrier to keep skin protected and hydrated. Recommended for babies and kids aged one year plus (and also great for adults suffering from skin irritations).

Chloe’s skin seems to be specifically dry on her upper arms and her legs. I am combining Aveeno cream and the Ziaja baby soothing cream daily now. If I don’t use it at least once a day, her skin will easily go dry again. So I need to keep on top of it.

I am giving all my readers the chance to win a Ziaja baby product bundle for themselves. This includes the  baby & kids lubricating bath, baby & kids shampoo and the soothing cream.

Caseapp – Create Your Own Phone Case + Giveaway

Whether you have an older phone and you want to pimp it up and give it some love or you got a new phone but you find it quite slippy in your hands. In both cases you can make this possible by creating a custom case for your phone. This is where Caseapp comes in.

Caseapp is excited about making the best cases and skins possible built on a user friendly website. They are constantly pushing their creativity and advancing their technologies to become the number one source for custom cases. You can also follow them on instagram @caseapp with over 55,000 people who already follow them.

Caseapp

There are many pre-made designs to browse from on the website. But if you want to create your own one, you can do so, by using their app to add text, images, background, whatever you think will look best on your new case. The cases come in a matt or high gloss finish. They have excellent print quality and are guaranteed to protect your phone. Right now the cases are available for iPhone, Samsung and iPad.
The case fits nicely around my Samsung Galaxy S6 and so makes it nice and snug. Depending on some cases, I sometimes find it hard to take them off again. The glossy one I got, was actually quite ok to take off after maybe one or two attempts.

If you don’t have an iPhone or Samsung, don’t worry… they also offer skins you can create or pre-made ones too, just like the cases. I got the opportunity to pick a skin for my laptop. This is only for 15.6 inch laptops at the moment though. Other devices include iPhone, Samsung, HTC, iPod, iPad, Nokia and MacBook.

***Giveaway*** Jamie Oliver’s Comfort Food Cookbook

Following on from celebrating my 100th blog post 2 weeks ago, today is finally the day I am putting up my first giveaway on my blog.

Comfort-Food-Cover-Canada-1

As I am sharing quite a few recipes every now and then with you guys, I thought this might be a good idea to giveaway a cookbook. And who else would you choose but the one and only chef Jamie Oliver.
He has recently released a new cookbook called “Jamie Oliver’s Comfort Food“. The book features 100 new recipes which for example include everything from a mighty moussaka, a delicate gyoza with crispy wings, a steaming ramen and a katsu curry to a super eggs Benedict, scrumptious sticky toffee pudding and tutti frutti pear tarte tatin.
There is something for everyone. I think autumn is the perfect time to try out some new recipes because it is getting colder outside and the fire is on in the living room. Cosy times ahead.

For your chance to win a copy of Jamie Oliver’s Comfort Food book, please enter below. Entries close 21st November.
