Eco Egg multiple purpose cleaner

Published January 28, 2016 by Bizzimummy

Eco egg produce household products that are driven by customers needs, are money saving, environmentally friendly and free from harsh chemicals. 
One of their products is a multi purpose cleaner. When the cleaner arrives there is 2 bottles, one of which is empty and the other is the concentrated mixture. 

 
It’s a big litre bottle which needs mixing and diluting, hence the other spray bottle. This concentrated mixture gives enough to make up to 80 spray bottles so it will certainly last me a long time. The back of the concentrate bottle shows how to dilute and it’s easily done with one or two capfuls of concentrate and filled with water. 

 
The concentrate has a very strong lemon scent, once diluted the scent is still there but no where near as strong, more a mild zesty smell which you would expect from most cleaners. 

 
This antibacterial cleaner is made using plant extracts. It contains no harsh chemicals and states that it kills 99.9% bacteria.

Clean the dirt you can see and the dirt you can’t see: it’s independently proven to kill 99.99% of E. coli, staphylococcus, MRSA and the flu bug, instantly.

The spray bottle is really easy to use and the nozzle can be locked when not in use. The spray comes out moderately with an ever so slight bit of foam. It can be used on any surface in any room, even glass. I found it especially good on kitchen sides, bathroom and white painted doors which get full of grubby hand marks. Here is a quick before and after picture of my previously messy kitchen worktop. 

 
The finished result is almost shiny and reflective. 

The cleaner costs £19.99 and gives 80 bottles of cleaning spray thus saving money paying out for supermarket brands 80 times.

Who loves me! Personalised book 

Published January 28, 2016 by Bizzimummy

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Izebella has been made and sent a very special book. 

 
This special book has been sent to her all the way from America. It includes her name on every page along with her birthdate and a photograph at the front. 

 
The pages tell the story of the many people who love Izebella, so mummy, daddy, brother, sister etc. You can choose up to 6 people to include when making the book and each page gives a different person who loves the names child. 

 

At the end of the book is a lovely dedication. This can be pre selected from a drop down menu choice or be your own custom words. 

 
This book is illustrated throughout with animals and nature images. There are other extra options of gift boxes and blankets too at extra cost. The book can come with other choices of coloured covers to suit boys and girls.

It made Izebella very happy to be the star of her own book.

The book came with a big sheet of personalised stickers too, many for Izebella and one for every person in the book who loves her. She enjoyed sticking these on us all.

The “Who loves” book is just one of many personalised books that can be made for a child at I see me. The books are priced in dollars and they ship to the UK by fast fed ex. This book costs $29.99 to make. 

Also take a look at the many other product they have to offer as well: including Lunchboxes / Puzzles /Coloring Books/ Placemats / Stickers and Growth Charts! Something for everyone and every occasion!

Mini-U bath bombs for kids 

Published January 27, 2016 by Bizzimummy

My girls love the things I do and always want their own make up and perfume despite being only 3 and 8. They also love bath stuff and anything smelly and bubbly. Jordanna enjoys bath bombs but can be prone to skin reactions and spots from certain products and finding bath bombs just for kids is not easy as not many places make them. But… Mini-U do!  

 They have just launched this rather cute looking package with a transparent window. Inside are 6 coloured bath bombs in 6 fruity varieties – blueberry, melon, kiwi, mango, banana, vanilla & Shea. The packaging is pretty minimal being just the box and the bath bombs individually wrapped in plastic. 

 

My girls were really excited about using these. All Mini-U products are safe and free of parabens and SLS/SLES (I’m unsure what they are) and so kinder on the skin.

Jordanna opened the first bath bomb (pink one) and dropped in bath. It immediately started to fizz and turned the water pink. 

 It only turned the water pink too and not skin or anything else. When the bomb had fizzed right down a little plastic thing appeared which at first looked like a tablet pill. This is actually a surprise small gift which are found in each one of the bath bombs. In our first one we found this little foam octopus. 

 I think my girls are now pretty eager to find out what’s hidden in the other five.

The bath bomb left no stains on the bath and Jordanna has not developed any rash or reaction to them so far. So all good.

Ravensburger: The inventors cupboard

Published January 25, 2016 by Bizzimummy

  The Inventors cupboard is a 1000 piece puzzle from Ravensburger. The artist is Colin Thompson from London. 

 
It’s a really complex/mind blowing puzzle as there is just so much going on. The picture shows an enormous cupboard full of machines and strange contraptions.  

 
There are robotic parts, lots of wires, pipes, tools, machines, a strange bed explaining the history of time, clockwork car, steam engine, telescope, time pieces, and even some curious creatures all in the one cupboard. 

The puzzle pieces are not quite as small as I thought they would be but there seems to be so much detail on each piece that it can be difficult to find which piece fits where. As there is so much on the puzzle its hard to sort the pieces into any sections too, as usual it’s best to start with the puzzle sides.

 
I am currently about half way through this puzzle but it’s certainly taking me a while to finish it.  


I have spotted The Inventors Cupboard Puzzle on Amazon for £11.02.

My Pure #3 – Trilogy Botanical lightening treatment.

Published January 20, 2016 by Bizzimummy

This month I am reviewing just the one product from My Pure

This is the Botanical lightening treatment and as with all My Pure products it is made with pure natural ingredients.  

 It’s a daily use product which aims to lighten and brighten to give a more youthful complexion. I am quite lucky to look a little younger than the grand old age of 38, but that doesn’t mean that my face is perfect. I have been noticing the odd lines on the head and other places here and there. I really don’t want to be looking old before my time. 

The product also claims to help reduce and prevent pigmentation and age spots as well as giving instant illumination. 

The best way to apply is this before the make up, this way it saves the need for a primer/highlighting product too and containing the natural ingredients means it’s also good for the skin when applying make up. 

The pump nozzle on the tube was a bit hit and miss I found I had give a few good hard pumps to get the product to come out. It also has a bit of a musty smell too at first but you do get used to it. 

It comes out as a white cream which glides on the face with ease. It dries very quickly too. 


I could not really see much of a difference with day time use in a mirror; but.. When looking at a photograph from a night out I can really see the illumination part. 

 This was just a few nights ago and I can certainly notice the glow in my face and of course the rather youthful look so I think it does work.

The product does not come cheap. It costs £25.08 currently for a 50ml tube. I have had this just over a week and hoping to see more good results with daily use.

Say I love you with Swizzels

Published January 18, 2016 by Bizzimummy

Now that Christmas is well and truly behind us, the next big thing for “some” of us to look forward to is Valentine’s Day which of course falls on February 14th. I won’t be celebrating much on this day and the only people I’ll be saying I love you too are my children. 

To make Valentines a bit more fun, Swizzels have bought out some new sweet products featuring their well known “Love heart” sweets. These sweets have been around for years. They are circular discs or sweet, tangy candy which all have hearts and messages on.  

 
So I’m trying out two of the novelty love heart products. 

 There is the huge love hearts tube which is packed full of mini love hear packets which come in 3 separate bags. This tube costs just £3.00. 

 
The retro mini tin comes as a special edition and is also heart shaped. It may well be wort keeping the tin for a good few years. It’s full of mini love hearts which come smaller than the normal ones.  

 The tin costs just £1.99.
Both love heart products will be available to buy in most supermarkets and stores.
