My New Favourite Brand of Talc-Free Powder: Belo Baby! (Giveaway Inside!)

Belo Baby Talc-Free Powder

I’ve been using talc-free powder ever since Yuri was a baby.

In fact, I don’t remember the last time I bought normal talc powder. I refuse to use it mainly because of the health risks that it poses. There is just no way I’m going to gamble. No thanks, I’d rather have peace of mind, thank you!

Over the years (Yuri is five now!), I have used a variety of non-talc powders and particularly favoured rice powder; however, they are not exactly easy to find, especially here in Davao City. Would you believe that just a few weeks ago, I was stressing over this because I’m already almost out of supply and I can’t find rice powder anywhere? I know it’s such a mundane thing to get stressed about, but if you’re also a mother, you would know just how important powder is in our kid’s daily lives. So running out of rice powder is a bit of a tough time.

Well, that was before I discovered that one of my favourite baby brands, Belo Babynow includes talc-free powder in their awesome line of products!

What a relief! You see, Belo Baby is not a foreign brand in our household. I have used a lot of their products: from soap to lotion to cologne. Even though Yuri is technically not a baby anymore (or so he insists!), I am still fond of using Belo Baby products because they smell nice — the scent does not attack my perpetual allergic rhinitis-ridden nose hehe — and are gentle enough to use on tender skin. Most importantly, they do the job they’re supposed to do!

So when Belo Baby contacted me to try out their new Talc-Free Powder just when I was running out of powder, I felt like it was an answered prayer. Of course I said yes! And now I will tell you why you should try it, too, whether you’re already using talc-free powder or not.

Belo Baby Talc-Free Powder

Belo Baby Talc-Free Powder is a gentle powder that’s made with zero talc and provides all-natural protection from diaper rash. It is made from certified natural and finely milled rice and maize that absorb moisture to keep baby’s skin soft, fresh and dry. It is also carefully formulated without talc, gluten, phthalates, parabens, dyes, and most common allergens, which I love because I’m careful to avoid all of these harsh ingredients. 

Belo Baby Talc-Free Powder

#BeloBaby, after all, is rafted with care for the most delicate skin, for the most meticulous moms. Unsurprisingly, Belo Baby Talc-Free Powder is the only powder Baby Scarlet Snow trusts!

And we all know children don’t really outgrow powder, so aside from diaper rash, you and your entire family can absolutely use Belo Baby to suit any purpose!

My Experience

The first thing that came to my mind when I received the Belo Baby Talc-Free Powder was its pretty packaging! I absolutely loved how it looked like, but just when I thought there’s no way it could get better, I opened the container and saw the cutest soft puff. Our old brand doesn’t have a puff, and talc-free powder tends to spill over due to its lightness, so being able to use it with a puff is a brilliant idea!

Yuri and I immediately used it, and I am pleased to report that it comes with a pleasant scent that is not overpowering, just refreshing.

Not our most glamorous picture, but that’s how we really look at home haha

And speaking of refreshing, it does the job of freshening up my super active 5-year old easily! I use it on Yuri every afternoon after his daily bikes and playing…

I also used it when we went out of town yesterday to go swimming…

And I use it every time we go out so Yuri — and I — smell fresh and sweet!

I like that I don’t have to use up a lot of powder; a dab here and there is enough. I don’t know why, but I don’t like putting a lot of product on the skin. I find that with really effective products, such as this one, there is no need to slather much.

Then again, you can play with more powder if you want to because it doesn’t contain harmful ingredients! After days of using it, I didn’t notice any adverse effect on Yuri’s skin. I’m totally buying this again and again!

If you’re not using talc-free powder, you should switch because:

  1. There’s a lot of health risks involved when using talc, including cancer.
  2. Talc is easily inhaled and may cause respiratory issues and lung irritation.
  3. Common side effects of talc powder use include vomiting and low blood pressure.
  4. In fact, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends against using talc powder.
  • As indicated by the American Cancer Society, it is not clear if products containing talc does increase cancer risk. Studies have had mixed results, although there is some suggestion of a possible increase in ovarian cancer risk. As long as there is mixed information, I’ll err on the side of caution.

If you’re already using talc-free powder, you should switch to Belo Baby because:

  1. It is meticulously made by a leading baby product brand with excellent track record.
  2. It is widely available in all leading supermarkets and department stores nationwide.
  3. It is all-natural with zero harmful chemicals.
  4. It comes with a puff that makes it easier to apply the powder and, at the same time, prevents you from using too much of the product.
  5. It is hypoallergenic and dermatologist-tested.
  6. The packaging just looks super cute!

Dreams Do Come True This Back-to-School Season!

Boardwalk: Dreams Do Come True This Back-to-School Season!

I am counting the days until school begins.

I am completely aware that I will regret this in the coming months hahaha but it doesn’t take away the fact that I am a super excited first time school mom. In fact, I’ve already started hunting for back-to-school bargains! Speaking of back-to-school bargains, you absolutely need to check out Boardwalk’s Back to School collection. I remember leafing through catalogues of Boardwalk in my high school days (wow, was it that long ago already?) and ticking the items that I wanted. Of course I did not have any money back then so I only ended up with one or two items that I begged my mother to buy for me lol.

What I did not know, though, is that their Back to School collection is full of nice must-haves! Oooh perfect timing. Thank God I haven’t done much shopping yet — I still have enough room for Boardwalk’s cool stuff! I had so much fun browsing their online shop, as I know any other school mom would, too.

With styles like these, it’s gonna be a win-win situation!

But this is not the best news yet. If you purchase from their Back to School collection online, you get the chance to win a Trip to Hong Kong Disneyland for 4!

A paid city tour will also take the winner and their family to see Hong Kong’s most popular tourist spots such as the historical Clock Tower, the popular Golden Bauhinia Square, and the Avenue of Stars where the most celebrated moments in Asia’s movie industry can be relived. Mom can get lost in the seemingly endless alley of clothing, accessory, and souvenir shops at the Ladies’ Market, and admire one of the world’s most spectacular skylines while taking a romantic stroll with dad along the waterfront at the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade.
