Craves: iPhone 4S

I was very much prepared to ignore the release of the new iPhone as really, I've never been into buying phones in that price range. Also, I'm not exactly a fan of Globe due to certain events that I will refrain from sharing. That is, until I learned about Vangie, from the chuvaness.

I'm not exactly off my rockets enough to think that the app is true but it sure opened my eyes to the functions of the iPhone that makes me want to get one. Siri is such a great app. I want one. Add the 8MP cam and the 1080 HD video capability and I am sold. I don't care if it's a phone. I'd like to use it without the phone function. FaceTime and iMessage over wifi works as good as video calls and text messages without paying extra for the service, right?

As I'm allergic to Globe, I prefer using Smart prepaid. The iPhone 4S is available for P33,200 for the 16GB model.

By the way, Vangie has a facebook page.

Love: Anthology Seoul

I finally got my Seouls yesterday after a few weeks of agonizing. I was going to get a beige but then I realized it was actually a brown and I figured I probably should invest in a pair of blacks as I already have a pair of brown wedge-heeled shoes that I adore.

I consider myself a size 5 but after the pinch with their Neon Classics, I opted to get the Seouls in a bigger size when I ordered online. You actually can't order directly through the website but I emailed them to inquire on the availability of the sizes in the stores and was informed that it was okay to simply send a mail to order. Delivery was free.
Once I emailed a copy of the payment slip, I was informed the next day that the courier would be picking up. It took 2 working days after courier pick-up to get the shoes but it was fine with me as I knew that said courier service has been very busy with the Christmas season. 2 working days is actually not a bad thing.

In all fairness, when I slipped my feet into these, they sighed. It was a very soft and comfortable fit. Imagine wearing 5 inches and yet still very much comfortable in spite of doing so. That wasn't something I ever experienced before. Also, it was very obvious that the materials used are first class. The outer suede and inner lining were genuine leather and the suede was actually made of very thick leather. How could I tell? The strap made of the suede was so thick I could hardly fit it inside the buckle at first. The soles were rubber, making it easy not to slip.

The black suede looked divine on my skin. I totally could rock using the shoes with both formal and casual styles. The strap was loosely fitted into the loop at the back and for someone careless like me, this might be bad as I might lose the strap on one of my bad days but this is also a good thing as you can buckle the straps at whichever side you are most comfortable. You can also remove the strap altogether if you're more comfortable with that, although for someone like me who can be quite clumsy, I might end up losing a shoe, a la Cinder girl.

I tried them on today and found them comfortable at the first hour but the straps kept digging into my skin. I might need to strap them a little looser. Of course, not having used such high shoes before, I found myself losing the battle at the second hour and almost giving up on the third. I really need to practice if I want to wear these consistently. Also, I almost got a little blister on the sides as I have wide feet. I may have to wear these with socks or something.

I'm not regretting this purchase. I like the materials. I like the initial fit. I'm hating them after about 3 hours but I was walking the whole time. I have plans for these babies so I could work on the fit. Also, they look oh-so-good on my feet so no regrets at all.

Update: 2/6/2011

On the second time I wore these with socks, they were so comfortable I fell in love. Yes, friends, I declare this is love. I tried them without socks a few times now and the chafing has gone. I wore it here.

Craves: Anthology Banana Flats

Whenever I'm going through a shoe obsession, I'm always stalking. I used to go through SM everyday just staring at their Outlook collection of Mary Janes. I actually do want to go to the mall everyday now just so I can do that to the Anthos in The Ramp but with the sheer number of people doing their Christmas shopping, it's not exactly the best of ideas.I try to sate my obsession by going to their website and just staring but the scrolling pictures made me salivate on some pairs I didn't even consider before.

I confess, I am currently going obsessed over their banana flats. These are the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever tried on. Yes, the main design is the same for all of the shoes offered but they all have distinct differences, aside from just color. Let me explain through below.


Brussels, Metallic, P3,195
This is the ideal pair of shoes for Christmas parties. It's shiny, glittery and yet not over the top. Just right, I say. After all, party all night entails you being on your foot all night.


Brussels, Onyx, P3,195
I love the straightforwardness of this pair. Black comfortable leather.

Cannes, Red, P3,295
This makes me want to go off and find the Wizard. The patent is so bright that it makes me possitively giddy

Cannes, Beige, P3,295
I love the look of nude shoes on my feet. It makes me feel really clean and light just wearing one.

Valencia, Blue, P3,195
I admit I'm not that imaginative when it comes to wearing clothes. When I'm wearing blue, I'd want to pair it with blue. This pair so resembles blue faded jeans that yes, I probably will want to wear it with jeans.

Sydney, Brown, P2,195
The color of this pair is just so comfortable. It's for lounging in a coffee shop or for going to a bookstore in search of one of those feel-good reads.

Cannes, Green, P3,295
I am not in love with this. I think I should get this pair, though. I have lots of green-colored clothes because it's a color that complements my skin tone so I should get a pair of shoes that's good with said clothes

Love: Next9 Tushy Wushy Cloth Diapers

Before I gave birth, I made the decision to use cloth diapers on my little bundle of joy. I wasn't sure if there were any available locally at that time but I was prepared to use the bird's eye lampin if need be. Thankfully, as I was checking out the many wonders of motherhood online, I came across Tushy Wushies.

These diapers are available through a whole gamut of online stores. Just find a local online store specializing in baby and preggy stuff and you'll find that they're selling these diapers. Next9 has an online store of their own and since I believe in eliminating middlemen in transactions, I transacted with them directly from the contact details from their website.

We started with only 2 packs. One pack comes in a bundle of 3 like colors of pocket diapers and inserts. Our first order were greens and denims. It sometimes got hellish with only 6 sets as we had to make sure the diapers were washed as soon as possible. As we line-dry after a spin cycle, there were times when we ran out as we had to wait for the diapers to dry. This was a nightmare during the first month when baby eats and poops every 2 to 3 hours. We added another 2 sets of blues and oranges and it became so much easier to manage after that. It helped that with the baby's bigger tummy, he didn't need to poop as much as before though we still try to change his diapers every 3 hours as much as possible.

I'm absolutely happy with my decision to stick with pocket cloth diapers and with buying from a local supplier. Please note that these are actually sourced from China but I'm happy with the construction, the tab spaces, the absorbency and the fit on my little boy. Above is a picture when he was a teeny newborn and below is one when he grew into this bundle of sugar-coated typhoon. They fit him then and they fit him now. Hopefully, they fit him next month.

I confess that life is not perfect with cloth-diapering. Flushing and washing poop out isn't the best thing in the world and I completely dread the mess when he starts on solid food. I'm taking heart in the fact that my little baby has this big smile on his face because he's so comfortable with the diapers, even when it takes us a while to remember that we missed his scheduled change.

Craves: VMV Holiday Gift Sets

We swear by VMV at home. We really really love it. One of the little known thing about VMV is that it is a local product. By the price point and packaging, you wouldn't be able to guess it but once you're more familiar with the product, you'll find that it's one of those things that make one proud of the products produced locally because it's really really good. It's being exported worldwide and are available online with global shipping.

I found out about the product back when I was reviewing. As everyone knows, people doing the review generally have no sleep the nearer the time for the exam is. One of girls from the other room, though, actually looked quite flawless in spite of the near sleepless state. I asked her about it and she mentioned that the concealer she uses is VMV.

One time, I was passing through their booth and one of the gift sets caught my eye. I got hooked into buying it with one other and that's how the love affair started. I swear by these and their facials too. If I were having a particular stressful time, I would get a facial and my face would be glowing and clear for a whole month.

Christmas is a season that I look forward to their sets. The savings are totally worth it and the packaging is just so adorable. Below are my picks and yes, that's actually most of them. No price though as that tempts me too much.

Are You Glistening

This set has an oil, a moisturizer and a lip balm. Coconut oil is the best thing ever, as far as I'm concerned. The moisturizer has SPF and the lip balm does too. This, I want lots. There can never be enough moisturizer, I believe.

Creams de le Creme

I love moisturizers. Love them lots. And yes, I want this set a whole lot. It's got anti-aging, whitening and one super-hypoallergenic. If I weren't breastfeeding, I'd have snatched this thing already, but the anti-aging and whitening ones are no-nos for now.

Holiday on Eyes

I totally love the VMV mascara. It's made in Korea and is one of those tube ones. So easy to apply and pile on, lasts all day without flaking and hypoallergenic too. As for the anti-aging eye cream, I've been dying to try this but alas, not for now. Someday.

Merry Goin' Round

I swear by the powers of Armada. I used to use it without moisturizers and it has totally made a convert of certain people I know on the powers of sunscreens in preserving the skin. The lip gloss, again, with SPF.


Lipstick and lipgloss. They've got tons of wearable colors, really. But then, don't listen to me. I used to buy 3 lip stains in one month. Moisturizing, of course.

My VMVery Favorite Things

Love all of these except for the shampoo. It's got a sulfate.

Love: By Nature Sunblock Away

This is one of those products I share with my man. I bought this because I'm using a citrus soap for my stretch marks and if I don't load up on sunblock, I might end up with some weird skin disease and/or color. I'd hate that.
I'm an advocate of sunblock. Just ask me why I look like a teenager at my age and I'd say it's sunscreen, the sun being the biggest cause of skin aging. I've used sunscreen since college and I won't stop anytime soon.
Why By Nature? First off, I have a new baby boy and since I'm currently breastfeeding, I'd like to limit the products I use to more natural ones. Anything I put on me, goes to my body and gets fed to him. Anything I put on my skin, especially to my face, gets rubbed off on him. By Nature is one of those natural products and I love their line. They list their ingredients on the package and I like what I read.
I like the price of this thing. I'd understand if one is skeptical because it's in a small package, smaller than most sunscreen containers in the market. However, this is oil-based and not at all a thick cream like most sunscreens are. A little goes a long way, actually. You don't want to look like an oily white mess with this so a dot on the face and little bit more on other exposed portions of the body. My hubby likes to pile on his products but even he uses very little of this as he knows it's basically oil with UV protection.
The first ingredient is sesame oil. Great stuff, really. Full of vitamin E and antioxidants. Who wouldn't want that on their skin? Skip to the webpage and scroll to the product portion if you want to know more about the other stuff in it. Because of the oils, we've been skipping moisturizer. I haven't been using anything harsh on my skin lately and my soap has some moisturizing properties so I'm okay with or without. Hubby's skin, though could use some moisture and with this, has actually improved. He is now a believer of less ingredients being better.
The product is a physical sunscreen, being non-irritant to the skin. It contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. There have been health concerns on these two but what can I do? Chemical sunscreens could mess up my hormones too. I could skip sunscreen altogether but I'd rather not skip going out in sunshine and gosh, doesn't the sun just sting lots without any kind of sunscreen?
As to any skin reactions. We've had no negative ones and as mentioned above, hubby's skin has improved. He has reactions on most moisturizers he uses, breaking out frequently, including to the ones I've used on myself with no adverse reactions. Sunblock Away, as with all By Nature products have a short ingredient list and with less ingredients, less chemicals and less irritants are absorbed by the skin.
We really like this thing and we're sticking to it like a fly to poop. Oh love!

Review: Motherlove Green Salve

I won this from a Chronicles of a Nursing Mom giveaway. I never would have bought it otherwise. It’s a bit more expensive as compared to the other salves I use though not as expensive as the first one I ever used.

I like this salve because it works. My little boy suddenly got this little blister under one arm a few days ago. He gets this every now and then. I used the green salve on him and it disappeared within the day with no trace of the blister. I also used it on some scrapes he made with his long nails on his face. Same results of no trace. Lastly, when my hubby cleaned his neck and the cleaning was a little too much, he calmed down after we put the salve on the area and when he woke up, the irritation has calmed down. The salve works.

I also like it because according to the website’s product information, “It has zero toxins based on the EWG’s skin deep database and is made with 100% certified organic ingredients.” This is made in the US so they have really strict standards when it comes to certifying organic products, so I believe it when they say it. The list of ingredients is very short, which is always a good thing. Ingredient list starts with extra virgin olive oil (EVOO). I like EVOO because it does a lot of good things to the skin, being a great moisturizer and healer. I’d wax poetic on all the other ingredients but that just isn’t my shtick. You can check out the website page of the product for more information on them.

I’m indifferent over the price. I understand why it’s pricey as it is imported. Taxes and custom fees being all that, the price actually isn’t bad at all, considering how the product works and the ingredients are obviously well thought of. Please do note that non-toxic and organic is not the same as hypoallergenic so please always check the label. My baby did not develop any allergies during the course of time that we used the product but that’s just us.

With all the good things I've said about this product, I would still hesitate to purchase it. I like buying local and there are a lot of local baby salves available in the market that are also cheaper, due to being locally-made. These salves work just as well for us so I’m using the green salve as I have it, it works and I like using organic. Given a choice though, I would still buy local.

Review: Anthology Neon Classics

I got a pair of Neon Classics by Anthology last week in orange for Christmas. There is no denying just how neon it is. The main sentiment people has to them is that I won't get lost. I think it would be a good pair to wear when my little sweet child has grown up enough to walk on his own. He can always just look for the orange candy shoes if he suddenly finds out he has walked too far away.

I like them because they match my little darling boy's orange cloth diapers. The lining is leather and the soles are rubber. The soles are stitched and very well stitched at that. They are very comfortable on my feet when I slip them on but...

What I don't like about them is that they're not comfortable when I start walking. I confess, I am a size 5 wide and I got a pair in size 5. These pinch. I was hoping I'd fit into these ones but sometimes, hopes get dashed. I need a bigger pair but they're a gift and I've already walked a day in them so I can't return them. Anyone interested in buying these from me?

I'm not giving up on Anthology, though. I went to the Ramp Crossings the other day and found hope in the Events line. Feels like heaven. Santa, please, I want 10 pairs of shoes for Christmas.

Craves: Zara Leather Bags

Unlike my love affair with shoes, I am not as enamored with bags. I'm ok with having only one bag all throughout a year. Unfortunately, I am not the type to buy expensive so a bag lasts me approximately half a year. Case in point, my husband gave me a bag for my birthday and it is now unraveling as I use every day without fail.

As I am currently on the lookout for a good bag that could fit all of my necessities, I've started to fall in love with Zara as they have genuine leather bags. Leather lasts me years and years as I used to wear leather shoes that were bought in grade school and lasted me till college. PETA can say wearing animals suck but I eat beef so there.

Below are my current mild obsessions. They're all simple and functional and maybe even asexual and most important for me, genuine leather.

 Square Suede Handbag, P5,990
Large Motera Bag, P6,590

 Messenger Bag with Double Buckle, P5,990

Leather Messenger Bag, P2,990

Crow: Motherlove

I won!!! Yay!!! I know, that makes no sense as a post.

If you might notice, I'm very much into By Nature and Ilog Maria products. I confess that it all started with this post from Chronicles of a Nursing Mom. I was pregnant then and considering buying one of the more expensive brands available at the major malls when I saw this post and never regretted trying out two of the salves she mentioned. Every now and then, I check out her blog and I've always found her posts helpful for a new mom like me.

Lately, she's been giving away stuff from her sponsors and I've entered the ones I've been able to catch. And so, with this one, I won!!! I'm very grateful not just to COANM but also to Hatch and Latch.

I love Baby Salves!!! I'll post on the salves in case another case of the rashes come our way. I have yet to dip at the moment though.

To the fates looking out for little ole me and throwing lots of luck my way, I'd like the Sunday Wrap Dress as well from Hatch and Latch. I really believe I deserve a nursing dress for all the manual pumping I've been doing at work. But if I don't get one through luck, please please please just extend the sale so I can get one next month when I've got a little extra padding money.

Craves: Anthology Shoes

I dream of shoes or maybe I simply lull myself to sleep thinking about them that I've convinced myself I dream.

I was going obsessed with Kenneth Cole earlier this year. Kind of like my obsession with Hush Puppies once upon a time before the rats got to my latest pair and then I simply wanted to scream. A few days ago, my obsession turned to a local brand, Anthology.

It was simple enough. I was reading karotitay and then forgot all about it. And then I looked at my 2 pairs of heels last week and realized that I needed to buy another pair, just so I won't stink up the place. Ok, I had some extra money and figured, shoes shoes shoes. It is time. You probably don't get my drift but my mind works like that. Crazy bugs.

I checked out the blog again and found that they carry really comfy shoes, which, actually is the one thing I want in any pair I would ever own. I gave in and ordered a Seoul. 5 inches and still comfy. Brown please in size 5. No word on when I'll get it as it's still in production but I'm already loving it as I stare at it at my lovely screen.

The Madrid is on sale at 50% off. The Silver Gray pair is calling to me. So much that I ordered it 5 minutes ago. No food for a while. Oh well. I'll eat my shoes. P1,747.50.

The Neon Classics is way too good a deal at 60% off. That's P718. I was eyeing the green but asked my seatmate about it and she convinced me the pink is the best-looking of the lot. I guess a girl deserves a pair of Barbie shoes at least once in her life. But truthfully, all the colors look really good. Green, orange and yellow are not bad at all. But we can only have one. Hopefully, I'll get it at the gift exchange at work.

I'll get a pair of NYCs next month. I don't care what my hubby will say. I deserve some leather in my life. I'm not obsessed with bags so shoes will have to do. Black this time. P3,795.

The red Geneva's main call to me is the color. Patent red leather. So very clickity. I want. Next next month? P3,995.

And the last pair? The Tokyo. Beige. That ribbon just screams to me, You deserve to have me in your life. P4,395.

Too much? Or I'm just too cheap? I deserve it, right?

Haul: By Nature

Once again, this post is late. So late that I could follow on with a review on all the products, which I won't. Yes, I am a bad blogger. But then, I'm no longer on maternity leave.

To sum up my hauls, the first haul made two weeks before the latest were soaps and Disinfect It! Spray.

From top left is Citrus White, which I hoped would erase the dark photosensitive marks on my body brought on by the pregnancy. It didn't work as of yet but I only used it for a week. I can only review on scent and it's non-drying properties. Efficacy will have to wait. To report, it is citrusy.

I liked Milkenhoney best out of all the soaps. I'll post some more love on it later. Scent is fresh honey from a jar.

Lavender Treat was somewhat of a disappointment for me. I expected it to smell like lavender, really but it smelled a whole lot like herbs to me. It wasn't sweet enough for the lavender lover in me.

Olive Beauty is the least scented out of all the soaps. I like it for my hair but we use it more on baby's skin. So far so good with my baby's super sensitive skin. One bar could last 6 months.

Dairy Bar is the creamiest soap out of the lot but please don't expect the scent of milk. It actually smelled herbal as well.

To sum up my soap-buying experience for By Nature, I like them a lot and they deliver as promised when it comes to the effect of the soap on the skin. Except for Citrus White. It will probably take the whole soap for me to be able to judge any effect at all. This is fair, I think. If a soap whitens you in the first week, it is stripping way too much of your skin layers. Much better to wait it out.

I didn't mention the last soap, Cocoa Butter Melt, because I didn't buy it for myself.

Additionally, I also got a bottle of Disinfect It Spray. It's a water-based disinfectant. I like it. It smells like band aid, weirdly enough, and I tote it around in my bag.

My next haul was a follow-up. I have bought the Baby Oilotion and Baby Salve before and the last haul had the Disinfect It Spray. The only new buy in the lot was the Sunblock Away. It's SPF 55. I figure that if I was going to use a whitening soap, I better load up on sun protection. It's working so far and I'm skipping the moisturizer as it's oil-based.

As usual, I got the lot through Pedala from Organic Joys. Aimee was so nice. She sent me the hauls once the order was confirmed before I even paid for them. So then I had to pay promptly.

Haul: Ilog Maria

This post is late as late can be, just like the time I arrive at the office. The actual excitement of having the products have gone already. But nevertheless, I figured the blog deserves a post for this weekend.

The following was ordered and received quite promptly:

Feminine wash as I like the scent and it feels fresh *there*.

Propolis ointment for my sister. She's having her first baby and would like to try it. It works well but it has menthol which I'm avoiding.

Honey Face Scrub for the really irritating flares. This works but the condensation in the refrigerator has changed it. I'll post more on that later.

Milk Bath Salt in lavender for the annoying stretch marks. This smells divine, I could sing just smelling this on me.

Insect repellant for baby's playpen. I just get a smidgeon and rub it round and no insects for the night dares to go near.

Shampoo. I've posted lots on this already so moving on.

Liniment for my mother's leg pain. She says it works wonders but it sure does smell. Not a bad smell but we're trying to avoid menthol right now.

So there. I'll post on my By Nature haul next and then the next batch on that. Ok, I'll post reviews and other stuff as well. I'm a bad blogger. No wonder I don't get money out of this.

Craves: Saya Baby Carrier

I am in full crave mode for the Saya Baby Carrier. We have two carriers at home already but with me not going out without baby these days as I prefer breastfeeding him directly, I'm trying to find a carrier that is convenient, has great shoulder and back support and is easy to breastfeed in. Baby is already 5 kilos, by the way and he's just a month old. I can barely lift him without my wrists aching afterward.

The Saya is made in the Philippines and is worth P950. From all reviews I've read so far, it's a favorite of baby-wearing mommies and is comfortable for mommies and babies who are ok with swaddling. What I'm really excited about is that it looks easy to breastfeed baby in. I'm not sure as I have yet to try it but it looks like I can even switch breasts while baby is in the carrier. I want this carrier so much I'm almost convinced that I need it.

Haul: Ilog Maria

Above image is what's left of my second Ilog Maria haul. That's 3/4 of their Honey Glycerin Face Soap, whole Honey Propolis Feminine Wash, half of their Milk and Honey Soap, a whole bar of lavender soap, Propolis Throat Spray with a few squirts used and a month's supply of Royal Jelly. I forgot to add in the family size shampoo and lip balm.

Just to confess publicly, it took me over a week to pay for my order after getting a confirmation. It wasn't because I was out of money. The haul costs less than a thousand and considering how many products I got and how happy I am with them, I consider the price really good. My hubby just kept forgetting to pay for me though. I got really embarrassed over it but thankfully enough, Ilog Maria sent me my order promptly after confirming payment. I am a bad bad costumer.

To give a quick overview of the products, I'd have to say that the honey face soap smells weird and as expected of a glycerin soap, melts easily. I can't vouch for effectiveness yet as I have yet to finish off the quarter of a bar I'm using. The feminine wash smells delicious and also melts easily. It probably is delicious as the rats got to it one night. Thank goodness I like using my soaps by quarters so I still have some left. It leaves a minty feeling behind. The milk and honey soap is love. I use it as hand soap and it doesn't dry my hands no matter how often I wash and with taking care of the baby, I wash my hands lots without moisturizing with lotion or oil after. I also love the lavender soap and it leaves a really good smell but it's a little more drying but not by much. The throat spray tastes weird but is effective for bad mouth stuff. I have to remember to reorder 2 more of these. Warning on overuse though as I sprayed a little too much one night and woke up with a really sore throat. 2 sprays on a single day max. The royal jelly I bought for my mother and she says it tastes weird. No note on whether she's feeling a bit more spry.

On a note on the ones not in the picture, the shampoo, I still love lots and not regretting getting the family size at all. The reason for the second haul is actually because I ran out of their personal size shampoo and I wanted to repurchase. They also have a personal size lavender version which sounds promising. The lip balm, I also love but regretting buying as the old tub is not even a quarter used up. The thing about buying handmade and/or organic is you have to use it up within 6 months as they usually don't have preservatives. With how little I actually use per swipe, I'm not sure I'm going to finish off 2 tubs within said period.

Craves: By Nature

As I've posted my wish list from the Ilog Maria catalog last time, I may as well share another list from another line I love.

I would like to try the following:

Cocoa Butter Melt, P115
This soap is moisturizing and fragrance-free, which is ideal while I'm still breastfeeding. I actually bought one already but sold it to a friend of mine whose father has a skin condition.

Lavender Treat, P145
There's absolutely no question that I love lavender.

Dairy Bar, P145
I've always wanted to try goat milk in my soap.

Baby Blue, P145
This soap is good for sensitive skin and I've learned that the main ingredient, blue chamomile, is good for boo-boos.

Just Tea Tree, P145
My hubby's skin tends to flare up and I'm wondering if I should get him this to stop said flares.

No Bites Bar, P145
Dengue season. That's all.

Disinfect It! Spray, P190
Alcohol is not good for babies so I'd like to try this so as to have something on hand that won't do any harm to my child.

Facial Oil in One, P250
I've found that their salves and balms are really good for my face so I'm guessing that the dedicated product would probably be even better.

Moisturizing Insect Repellant, P260
Dengue season.

Moisturizing Oilotion, P260
For the same reason as the facial oil, I'd like to try their oilotion for the body.

The following I already have and tried and would like to haul once again:

Total Attraction, P175
I love the scent, really. I want this for shampoo needs.

Olive Beauty, P175
I'm using this and baby is using this, so I need another haul.

Baby Salve, P200
I initially used the baby salve on an insect bite on myself and hubby. I'd like to buy a dedicated one for baby.

Balm of Butter, P350

I use this on my stretch marks, on my face before taking a bath and as a base for salt scrub. I've got half the tub through. I need more, I think. Or maybe not because the tub is so big.
