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.

  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.

Children thrive when there is a routine

The Kiddies were on holiday until this week. They had their spring break earlier this year, and were back to school this Monday. Usually during the holidays, we have a very flexible routine. There is more time to get things done, so I usually have a relaxed approach to our routine. This works okay for the first 2 days or so, and then it usually becomes really chaotic. Children thrive when there is a routine in place as they know what is expected and what needs to be done. But when there is none, things can easily get crazy, which leads to tantrums, more tantrums, use of the naughty step and over tiredness.

The Importance of Routines

Many families still have the go with the flow approach when it comes to raising up kids and running the home. The children eat whenever, sleep whenever they decide to fall asleep and pretty much do whatever they want to do at home, with no clear set times for anything. They don’t see the importance of having a routine. Instead, they prefer to let things happen “naturally”, which usually never works in the real world.

Here are some of the reasons why having a routine for your children is really important –

 

Security

Routines give children a sense of security. It also help them develop self-discipline which is a life skill we all need to prosper. I have had a routine for the twins since they were 3 months old. The routine has been tweaked here and there from time to time, as they have grown older. I can’t imagine us not having a routine. A routine helps the child feel safe and secure, which helps them handle day-to-day life better.

 

Structure

Having a routine offers the child structure. This helps them manage themselves and their surroundings better. I feel better when my days have some form of structure. Structured days are always very productive for me, and it works the same way for kids. Having a routine, and knowing what needs to be done, and planning towards takes away power struggles you may be experiencing with your children.

Responsibility

Children learn to be more responsible and take charge of their activities when they have a routine. They know they need to lay their beds when they wake up for example, because that is the first thing they do with mum everyday. When there is a routine, you don’t need to go on and on about what needs to be done because the children know already. Children corporate better when there is a routine, which means fewer tantrums, stress and anxiety for everyone involved.
