When I was still working and used to go out, I get to have my haircut done. Not regularly, though, but still, I get to see a hair stylist.
Now that I am a full-time stay-at-home mom plus a homemaker, I can still go to the salon and get a haircut. But it could mean once in a year.
Yes, once in a year or longer than that. I am not exaggerating. And the act of going to a salon is considered not having my hair done anymore but called “me time.”
Basically, both are the same. I still have my hair cut. But the latter has become more of a treat to myself. Because once I become a parent, I tend to worry about children’s colds and flu more than finding time to pamper myself. I also have a house to clean and a dining table to fill with food. I am not complaining, though. But sometimes, I wonder how life has been if I remain single.
Anyway, for busy moms like me who seldom leave the house, one great innovation that I am truly thankful for is online shopping. From finding cheap deals at the comforts of our house to avoiding the crowd, there are perhaps a dozen and more reasons to do shopping online. From electronics, fashion, furniture to baby needs, beauty products and more, there are a number of shopping platforms to choose from.
Have I told you online shopping? Recently, because I feel my hair needs a little pampering and I can’t simply go out, I window shop for some hair care products. And my latest finds?
Infused with extracts of Coco Cream and Milk Protein, this conditioner instantly adds essential hydration to my hair for long-lasting softness. And I also love its luscious fragrance which can last the whole day. I also love its Shampoo. The texture is thick and pure that leaves my hair soft and again, fragrant all day.
Another good thing about online shopping is you get to see new products and read reviews about them. I am not into body wash but when I saw this product, I said I would want to give it a try. After all, it’s not only my hair that needs pampering but also my dry skin.
I thought the scent would be milky. To my pleasant surprise, it smells powder fresh, just the way I like it. I also love how it makes my skin feel completely clean and smooth after my shower. I don’t apply lotion and using this body wash makes me not use body lotion all the more as it makes my skin really moisturized.
Another product that caught my attention is the latest Colgate variant.
I remember when I was a child and got no toothpaste to use, my mom would urge me to use salt instead. True enough, salt is a good choice. It is antibacterial and does not damage the tooth enamel at all. Using salt can help kill bacteria in hard to reach places, too. The Colgate Active Salt combines salt with calcium and minerals to make teeth strong and gums healthy. It has a minty taste with a dash of salt which truly makes our brushing experience unique. And I swear, I could feel my teeth real squeaky clean.
Effortless shopping experience
I found all these products at Lazada, one of the most leading online shops in the country. And lucky me that even before I do my purchase, our friends from Lazada gave these products for my family and me to try. And seriously, these items are truly gift-worthy products not only for busy moms but for those who would love to truly have a luscious stay in the bathroom.
