Your newborn will pass stools several times a day and pee every few hours. The wetness doesn't bother most babies though since they have been in the warm and moist atmosphere of the mother's womb for nine months , so don't expect the baby to cry or show discomfort every time she needs changing.

Price -- Rs 450/- for 3.5 gms 

PROS of  Studiowest Pure Passion Long Lasting lipstick - Passionate Plum  Affordable for a long lasting lipstick .It has a texture which is comfortable , does not make my lips sticky or stretchy .Of course it is a good idea to use a lip balm beneath since long lasting lipsticks are drying .Beautiful purplish-mauve colour in single swipe .Suits medium to dusky complexion very well .Lasts for 3-4 hours with light snacking and drinking .The black  plastic case is sturdy and shuts with a click , so less chances of the cap coming off in your purse .

Dry skin is a common issue in winters and putting a lot of creams and lotions is not enough in winters.Soaps can further rob the skin off moisture yet I being a soap loving traditional person ,ventured out to try another soap - The  Himalaya almond and rose soap .

The  Himalaya almond and rose soap calims to moisturise and cool our skin.


   Price -   I got it from my local store .It is not expensive at all.I got it only for ₹40 for 125 gms 

The PROS of The  Himalaya almond and rose soap 
1. Easily available . 2. Being a soap , it is easy to carry - no spills :) 3. Inexpensive  4. Refreshes and moisturises - I found that it cleanses my skin like any other average soap bar and does not feel  drying . 5. Has a very pleasant but delicate flowery and nutty smell .It does not linger for long though .


The CONS of The  Himalaya almond and rose soap 
1. It does not foam easily , takes a lot of rubbing to give lather , maybe that is to reduce the drying  effect but It does feel time consuming .
