BioShield kiddie, 100ml & 240ml

Ever heard of the Hokkien phrase “lah sup jiak lah sup tua”? Basically goes along the line of you are what you eat. So if you eat unhygenic food, you would sorta grow up with an immunity towards it. But, well, that is the generation of our parents and grandparents.

These days, when we go out with our kids, we are armed with wipes. And not just wet wipes that you use for cleaning kiddos’ bums. You have a hand-and-mouth wipe, you have an anti-bacterial wipe, you have wipes for normal stuff, you have wipes for sensitive skin & butts. Good grief. To be honest, I am guilty of that. When we went to Melaka, I brought hand-and-mouth wipes, anti-bacterial wipes and normal wipes.

Oh, and hand sanitisers too. Just so we can sanitise our hands before we handled Ollie’s wipes. Haha. First time parents, what to do.

Then Ollie grew up and as all boys are, they grow up curious. And wanting to help do anything and everything, which is fine if it didn’t include getting distracted and wanting to do more than what is intended.

Ollie want to press the lift!
Ollie want to water the plants!
Ollie want to return the library books!

Ollie wants to do everything and anything. Argh. And then Ollie wants a snack and proceeds to put fingers in his mouth before I can do anything about it. Double argh.

Until I received a sample pack of BioShield stuff. Lab tested to kill 99.9% of most common germs which includes E.Coli, Salmonella, HMFD, Bird Flu. Zhun boh? And then a quick search about the product says “Lab report provided upon request.” No shit. Well, no harm in giving it a go.

I did do my homework, and checked out the ingredients. It is organic and the ingredients include Bioflavanoids, MQ-7 Vitamin K2, Ubiquinol (Coenzyme10), which are all stuff that can be derived from our bodies. Which means that it is very safe for us to use.

So these days, outings with Ollie would be a quick spray around his arms, hands/palms, and spraying on his hands to apply on his face. And he is FREE To go press anything he wants, followed by putting his fingers into his mouth without me squealing in horror. However, it also means that once his hands come out of his mouth, I’d have to wipe the saliva off and reapply.

Is it safe to be ingested? Well, he is still alive and kicking. The people behind BioShield also mentioned that it is safe to be ingested, except that it tastes terrible. Hahaha. We have been using the BioShield kiddie for about 2 weeks now, and I take the kids out regularly around the neighbourhood just for a quick walk almost every day. So far so good! Ollie is in the peak of health and he hasn’t caught a cold/flu/stomachache..etc.

What I liked about BioShield is that it is topical. Nothing to be ingested, just spray on. It is also non-greasy and very easily rubbed into the skin. It is also alcohol free. And when sprayed on, it stays on for 4 hours unless you used a wipe to wipe down or washed your hands. Which means you would need to reapply again. This means that you are protected for 4 hours, and not having to use a hand sanitiser to clean your hands AFTER you have touched something unhygenic or dirty. These germs DIE upon contact with your protectant layer.

I can see how this is going to be beneficial for the kids: when going to childcare or kindy, when going out, and when going on a trip in a confined environment like an airplane (omg..bacteria a-brewing). For now, Ollie just gets sprayed as long as he is out of the house.

Germs & bacteria be gone! *spraaaaaays*

BioShield Healthy Feet, 100ml

How many times have you used a public pool and then make sure that you will have your slippers on when you enter the bathroom? And then squeak and squelch your way out of the bathroom and hope to the high heavens that your feet will dry and did not catch anything contagious in the bathroom?

*kee chiu* (raises hands) damn gross feeling right?

That is until you discover BioShield Healthy Feet. After you finish showering, spray on a generous amount of Healthy Feet and then your feet is protected by it. It will kill those germs and bacteria that may be present in the bathroom.

And not only that! I am a sweaty feet sufferer. Wearing slippers is the best option for me. Put me in shoes like these fabric cotton ones..

covered fabric shoes.

covered fabric shoes.

and helloooo sweaty stinky feet at the end of the day. To further gross you out a little more, you know when you wash your feet and use your thumb to rub your soles AND you get dirt/dead skin or whatnots rubbed out..

Yar, that kind of feet. Well, sweaty feet odour happens because there is bacteria generating the smell. Sweat in itself is odourless. So let’s try out how the foot spray held up. I was going on a full day adventure with two kids, and left the house at 8.45am in the morning with the first spray.

0845am – 45 mins walk to the train station cos Ollie took FOREVER to follow me.
1045am – finally reached the other end of Singapore to meet up with a friend.
1120am – reaches friend’s place. Takes a first whiff of my feet. It just smells like my shoe. i.e., not sweaty feet stinky.
1230pm – leaves friend’s house, second spray cos I washed my feet to remove any dirt before spraying
1700pm – finally done with full day of walking, lunch and shopping. Finally sits down with the kids at the library. Looks quickly around, second whiff of my feet. Still smells just like my shoe. No sweaty feet stinky smell!! Do a quick 3rd spray on the feet.
2000pm – reach home after dinner with Donald..and this time I get him to smell my foot. Hahahahhaa. Okay he said it smelt like my shoe stinky, I take a 3rd whiff. Yar, shoe smell, but not sweaty feet stinky.

My verdict? Say byeeeee to stinky feet. I mean this stuff even prevents athlete’s foot! I reckon it is the way to go man.

Other ways to use it:

1) spray it on kiddo’s feet after a day at the waterpark (goodness knows what kind of water they use at the waterparks). Last thing you need is your kid getting some fungal infection on their feet;
2) spray it before you head to the gym or for a run;
3) spray it before you ladies go out for a day of shopping! (eh..mai shy hor..haha);
4) give a bottle to your army boyfriend / husband so you can save your nose.

BioShield U! for adults, 100ml & 240ml

This pretty much works the same way as the kiddie, except that the concentration level is higher to cater to adults. Very hand for moms when they go out with their children.

I mean, if I am dealing with a crying baby and you need to warm up some milk or shake up some formula, I reckon washing my hands would be the last thing on my mind. With a 4 hour window to protect your hands, you can skip a step, and head straight to sorting out kiddo. Spray this on myself means I am protected and I can spend more time being healthy looking after my kids. It also means…*looks around* I can also press lift buttons and then take out a biscuit for Ollie and give it to him without cleaning my hands! *gleeful* Okay, I know it sounds gross and damn unhygienic. I mean, if I touched dried pee sai or accidentally dugged my finger into the monsters’ poopthen of course is a different story lah. There’s one thing about being protected and one thing about ingesting said germified item hor.

BioShield Handsan, 60ml

Of course if you are looking for something for the hands only, and an organic alternative to the alcohol based hand sanitisers, then you can look at getting the Handsan. It’s a small enough bottle to keep around in the bag!

It’s organic, it’s a protectant and it has multiple uses. Damn value for money IMHO.

The range of BioShield products can be purchased from the following online stores:
1) Big Little Me
2) Bove (Suntec Tower 4)
3) Organic Eve (Tiong Bahru Market #01-81/82/82/83)
