As mentioned in my previous post, I had received a fair bit of products from my “360 Care Package” from AO&N – Thanks to TIN!~
I am deeply impressed with AO&N‘s wide range of organic and natural products.
Today, let me do a short review on one of the products which I find it very interesting – Little Innoscents Mineral Powder (organic baby mineral powder).
|Let’s do a simple comparison on what the two brands of baby powder in my home –
Brand X and Little Innoscents Mineral Powder.
Of course I am too old to be a baby, but I like baby powder, love it’s soft and gentle texture on my skin. I have dry sensitive and I get irritates by the hot weather in Singapore – some people might observed I had a couple of small scars on my hands, those are.. hmmm… caused by my own scratching. T_T
Back to the powder, why is it so special?
It have this faint scent of Spearmint which I don’t remember is common for other baby powder (instead I was reminded of the smell of chewing gum), heard it contains Lavender essential oil too but I didn’t really smell that.
First impression with it is: eeeeeehhh…. why is it so rough?
|Left: Brand X baby power have a real fine texture
Right: Little Innoscents Mineral Powder baby power obviously have a rougher texture
Have to admit that initially, I am skeptical of using this ‘rough powder’ as a baby power (or even for kids!) …
|Top: Simply give the hands with a few rubs and almost all of Brand X baby power will be gone
Down: Little Innoscents Mineral Powder baby power left behind a residue despite trying to pat them off
The powder, during application , feel notably soft and (is it my imagination?) have a bit of cooling effects. 🙂 After a hot day, I still find my body feeling moisturised and not itchy (due to the dryness)! What a pleasant surprise! Now I am convinced that I do find it suitable to be used for kids and baby – knowing how they get heat rashes easily, they certainly deserved something that keeps their skin moisturised, especially under Singapore hot Sun!
