I got many emails from moms on which pillow do I use for my baby? I bought few rai (mustard) pillows for my baby and honestly speaking I feel they did flaten my baby's head a bit even though she keeps her head straight while sleeping! So I bought this cute, little pillow from Mee Mee!
Price- Rs 299 You can find it on Firstcry!
Though pillows are normally not recommended by doctors but I feel they are essential in the initial months to keep their head and neck in proper position. Make sure to buy soft and small pillows so there are less chances of choking!
Mee Mee Baby Pillow is made from soft and high quality fabric. It is very soft and comfortable and would not cause flat head to your baby! After 3 months, I started putting the pillow in my baby's rocker for proper neck positioning! I loved how comfortable it is and is perfect for small babies upto 6 months!
Make sure to keep a watch on your baby even when he/she sleeps! My baby is now 6 months old and she mostly sleeps sideways so i have stopped using pillows for her!
- Soft and durable!
- Cute design!
- Made of high quality fabric.
- The hole in the middle is great to keep baby's head in place!
- Reasonably priced!
- Baby sleeps for longer time!
Overall, I am satisfied with Mee Mee Baby Pillow! It is soft and comfortable and keeps baby's head in place!
I am absolutely in love with Lakme 9to5 Naturale range and I would highly recommend everyone to check it out. I had already reviewed Lakme 9to5 Naturale Day Creme and today I am going to review Lakme 9to5 Naturale Night Creme.
The packaging is same as that of day creme but the green color is slightly different. The texture of the night creme is soft and smooth and gets absorbed easily. It will suit all skin types including oily skin but if you have acne prone skin then stay away from it. It smells wonderful and instantly soothes the senses when you are back from work. It soothes and moisturizes skin making it soft, supple and hydrated. It is infused with pure aloe extracts that is a boon for every skin. It also makes skin look lively and bright. A healthy glow to the skin is clearly visible. I had given it my cousin to try and she loved it. She has normal skin type.
- Nice and light packaging.
- Wonderful scent.
- Gets absorbed quickly.
- Suits all skin types.
- Instantly makes skin supple and hydrated.
- Gives a healthy glow to the skin.
- Perfect night creme if you do not like heavy creams.
- Infused with pure aloe vera!
- Reasonably priced.
- Might not suit acne prone skin.
Overall Lakme 9to5 Naturale Night Creme is a wonderful night creme to keep your skin soft, supple and nourished. My cousin loved it and I can see the results visibly on her skin. I would definitely recommend it to you!
I have been using Iraa Instarenew Multi Action Under Eye Cream for the last few months and here I am ready to share my opinions about it.
Price- Rs 490 for 20g currently not available online
Iraa Instarenew Multi Action Under Eye Cream comes in a sleek white tube with a silver screw top lid. The packaging is not at all sturdy and the nozzle got broken when I teisted the lid. I am really disappointed with their packaging. I had to transfer the cream to the new container. The tube in turn comes in a white cardboard box packaging with all the information on it.
The formula of the under eye cream us quite good and gets absorbed quickly without leaving a heavy feeling behind. It is fragrance free and ophthalmologically tested. I use it twice a day and it moisturizes my dry under eye area really well. It reduces wrinkles and crow's feet and makes skin look smooth and healthy. It also helps in reducing minor dark circles but if you have very prominent dark circles, then I doubt it will help you. It also helps in reducing puffiness but since I don't suffer from any so can't share my experience.

Born Pretty Nail Polishes are of really good quality. I have tried many of them and all have me such good results.
The nail polish comes in cylindrical glass bottle that is easy to carry and store! Silver Stream is a super gorgeous silver color with a metallic mirror finish. It requires two coats to get that beautiful coverage and effect. I absolutely loved how it looked on my nails and it will look fabulous on all skin tones.

It also includes a sponge that applies the compact really well thought always use my powder brush for easy application.
The compact powder comes in only one shade and I feel it will suit very well on fair to medium skin tones. It applies evenly and gives a nice matte look to the skin. Whenever I had to go out, I skip sunscreen and apply this over my makeup. Though I do not stay under the sun for a long time but it does protect my skin from tanning. It also evens out the skin tone. If you have minor blemishes, you will love it.
