Review – PoxClin Cool Mousse for Chickenpox

*Affiliate link.

I mentioned in my last parenting post that my twins had chickenpox in the last few days of the school term. It was horrible but thankfully they have recovered fully. We used a couple of products to deal with the spots and keep them comfy. One of the products we used was PoxClin Cool Mousse for Chickenpox.

The kiddies used this product multiple times a day for around 2 weeks. We ended up buying 3 packs of PoxClin Cool Mousse for Chickenpox. It is a pricey product. We found it a lot more expensive than many others products for chicken pox, but it did the work.

 

Product Description

PoxClin Cool Mousse has been developed to provide relief from skin irritation, itching, burning and sensitivity associated with chickenpox. It contains a unique bioactive bacterial blocker for an effective treatment to sooth the itch, to recondition the skin and to help prevent scar tissue formation. PoxClin Cool Mousse can be easily and hygienically applied to the areas of affected skin.

Check out our thoughts –

 

PROS
  1. I found it easy to apply on the children thanks to the great texture. The packaging is also very practical. The pump makes it so easy to use.
  2. It quickly absorbs into the skin.
  3. This product does relief the itch that comes with chickenpox.
  4. It helps the skin heal and prevents scarring.
  5. The kiddies loved the feeling of this product on their skin.
  6. There are no harsh chemicals or toxic substances in PoxClin.

CONS

None. I can’t fault this product. It was a life saver for us. The only bit I didn’t really like was the price tag. The bottle is only 100ml so we went through each bottle quickly. However, I quickly understood why it was more expensive than other products for chickenpox, after trying some others.

I recommend PoxClin to anyone who has chicken with chickenpox. This product must the ordeal a lot easier. It is a very effective product and it does all it promises to do.

Free Summer Activities for Kids

School is shutting for summer in about 4 weeks, so it makes sense to have plans for the 6 weeks summer break. Money can be tight for many of us and let’s face, we all need free summer activities to keep the kids busy, regardless of how rich we may be. You can’t be on a beach or in a theme park every day for 6 weeks, so you have to think ahead of how to keep the little ones engaged.

I have lots planned for the summer holidays. As a work from home mum, working at home with the kids can be hard.  I will be planning lots of different activities and be fitting in work around our schedule, so everyone is happy.

Here are some free summer activities for kids we will be making the most of –

 

Go for walks

We love to go for walks. The kids enjoy being outdoors so we will be going for lots of long walks in our area.  There is something so refreshing about being outdoors especially when the weather is nice. It is a good way to get those steps in and stay fit. Plus, fresh air and sunshine does wonders for our state of mind so make the most of this free activity with the kids this summer.

Make the most of your garden space

Now I know I am so guilty of not making the most of our garden. We don’t use our garden as much as we should and that is going to change this summer. I am going to get fun stuff for the kids to play with and make the garden as child-friendly as possible. It is amazing how running around and playing can keep the kids so busy for hours.

Riding bicycles and scooters

We have spots in our estate where kids can ride their scooters and bicycles safely away from the road and cars. We are going to be visiting the spot quite regularly. I like being able to sit on a bench and watch the kids ride safely. It is another exciting activity for them to do outside the house, and it is free once you have the bike/scooter and safely accessories!

 

Visit your local playground

I will be visiting the local playground with the kids. Luckily for us, it is not far away from where we live, so we will be making the most of it. The kids enjoying playing on the slides, swings and the other rides. We can easily spend an hour there. A good spot to spend an afternoon.

Baking

For days when the weather is not playing nice, we will be baking indoors. The twins are very into baking now and are interested in the whole process. So, we will be doing a lot of baking this summer. It is a fun educative activity for the whole family.

 

Camping in the garden

Camping in the garden is on our list this summer. It is something we have never done but want to do, and I think the right time is the summer. We will be getting a tiny camping tent and all the necessary camping gear to make it as much fun as possible.

 

These are just some examples of free summer activities we will be doing this summer holiday. Of course, we will be doing other paid activities like soft play, theme park, visiting a farm, and the likes. But more of free activities, so a lot of thinking outside the box.

The Kiddies Do 360 Play Basildon

We spent our spring break holiday in Essex and London with family. The Kiddies had a lovely 2 weeks holiday and they went back to school with stories to tell. On the first day of our holiday, we had the opportunity to watch Dumbo in the cinema. It was a lovely movie. We all enjoyed it, which I found surprising as I wasn’t sure I was going to like. On the second day, we decided to go spend the day at 360 Play Basildon, and I am glad we did.

This was our second time at 360 Play Basildon. We visited a few years ago for my nephew’s birthday party but we were restricted as it was a birthday event. This time, there were no restrictions. The kiddies had a lovely time going from the bottom floor to the top. They went on all sorts of rides and explored every bit of the place. It was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed because it wasn’t really busy when we were there. Kids were still in school in the south, as our school went our holiday pretty early. So there was room to really enjoy and have fun.

We were at 360 Play Basildon for about 5 hours and the twins did not get bored for a minute. There was so much to do. There were the massive slides they couldn’t get enough of. The cars were another hit with the kids, they really enjoyed the rides. My daughter also enjoyed riding the Carousel at the top floor. She also found the Vet shop and the dressing up rooms fascinating. My son was more into the slides, ball pit, Lego section and the fire engine trucks.

I recommend 360 Play Basildon. It is really a place to play. I found it a bit pricey at first, definitely more expensive than your regular soft play. But as soon as soon as I stepped inside, I could see why it was more expensive. We went on a week day and it wasn’t school holidays in Essex yet, so we paid off-peak prices – £3.50 per adult and £9.95 per child. I booked our day online and got some discount for registering and booking before the day.

360 Play Basildon is definitely not a regular soft play centre. There are so many rides and activities to keep the children busy for hours non stop. There were also no restrictions on how long we could stay, which made the journey to the spot and price worth while in the end.
