What Is Jungle Juice???

Right, so now that I am a mommy, I’m going through more things than just finding out the latest beauty products, tricks and tips. Motherhood goes beyond that. It’s now whats best for your child, and of course yourself. How on earth can a mother look after her child if she doesn’t look after herself first.

So if you’re a mommy, you know or have heard of jungle juice, haven’t you?  It’s a ‘magic’ potion you drink to improve your milk production. Although on La Leche League (LLL) groups, they’ll tell you it holds no evidence that it does, HOWEVER, too many mommies say it has worked for them. So I’m testing it… And in my honest opinion it is working. But I have to also say that I’m topping up with formula. This is a personal choice, as my milk took a while to come in. I feel it’s due to the fact I had a c-section. I have however noticed my milk is coming in more with this juice while expressing. So my boy is having less formula.. so yay!

Now it could be just be the fact I’m drinking a whole lot of liquids which lets face it, is what really helps with milk production. But with all the ingredients one mixes, it could only be helping really.

INGREDIENTS:

2 litres water, room temperature or cold.
1 litre apple juice
1 sachet rehidrat (available at a pharmacy)
± 10 drops per litre of juice of Rescue drops (available at a pharmacy)
60ml blackthorn berry elixir (available at a pharmacy)

METHOD:

  1. Mix it all together in a large bottle ± 5 litre bottle and drink it all up within two days.


WHAT IS REHIDRAT?
Oral electrolyte mixture for the treatment of dehydration.

WHAT IS RESCUE DROPS?
A homeopathic-flower essence combination complementary medicine of the use of shock, anxiety, fear, grief and recurrent insomnia due to stress.

WHAT IS BLACKTHORN BERRY ELIXIR?
This elixir is ideal for restoring the body’s natural balance after periods of exhaustion, pressure or illness.
Reducing fatigue and increasing vitality.
Pregnant and breastfeeding woman and after confinement. Ideal for the whole family.


So if you’re breastfeeding, I suggest trying Jungle Juice out. So far, so good. I definitely approve.

MuchLuv, BeBlessed

Rain Africa Biologie Kalahari Melon Hand Lotion

Let me start off by saying that Rain Africa is such a wonderful brand and that I have never been disappointed by any one of their products. Using their products brings me immense joy. The fact that they harness all the goodness our abundant earth has to offer while presenting it in such a delightful way is what makes me love them so much.

And as you can guess I was super impressed with this hand lotion as well. It contains ingredients such as Marula Oil, Kalahari Melon, Rosehip Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E. The superstar of this cast of ingredients is without a doubt the Kalahari Melon which contains wonderful properties that moisturises extremely well while it regenerates and restructures the skin.

Consistency wise you can expect a white in colour lotion that is lightweight yet super nourishing with a subtle yet delightful scent. I have been struggling with the driest of hands for a very long time and I am always on the search for something that will take the dryness away while it is not sticky and I often find that certain hand lotions can really just satisfy my needs in only department. When it is super moisturising, my hands feel greasy afterwards, and when it absorbs fast, my hands still feel dry afterwards. I am happy to report that this product is perfect for me!

I have popped this product in my bag so I always have it on me when I need to moisturise my hands. I will definitely repurchase this product. You can go online and have a looks at the wonderful products they have to offer. This tube of love retails for R69-00.

Labello Lip Butters

Sometimes, being a beauty blogger has perks like receiving random parcels at your house with loads of goodies in to try! Labello were kind enough to think that little old Pout Perfection deserved some loving and decided to share their brand new range of lip butters with us!

Check out their cute little advert which is all about sharing!

As Labello says, the Lip Butters are your BBF‘s, or BEAUTY BEST FRIEND and they will become a handbag essential!

Winter, no matter if its wet or dry always takes a toll on my lips and they always suffer. Dry, cracking lips plus excessive makeup is never a good combination and since starting to use one of the three that I was sent to try it is slowly growing on me… even though I am not a huge fan of lip products that I need to stick my fingers in for my lips but since starting to use them, I’ve quickly got over it and I have grown very partial to the Vanilla and Macadamia Lip Butter!! Labello Lip Butters

Other variants in the Labello Lip Butter collection are Raspberry Rose which is scented with the most gorgeous citrus undertone overpowered by cherry for a real mood lift and the Original (which I think would be perfect for those manly men who suffer from dry lips!) as this has a discreet fragrance and has a macho baby blue exterior packaging!

The formula once on your lips is quite creamy and doesn’t leave a sticky residue so your hair is quite safe even with the wind in Cape Town! The drier your lips are, the faster the product absorbs and you instantly feel relief on very dry and cracked lips.

What is even better, these little treasure pots are only R29.99 and are available at leading retail outlets and pharmacies nationwide.

Pucker up and pout with Labello Lip Butters today!!
