It is very important to have  proper lighting when reading or doing homework.  Now that Tiger girl is in Primary school she has much more  homework to do on a daily basis.  Having a good study lamp is an essential for her.

I was privileged to be  able to review the latest lamp by 3M- The P1610.  Her brothers have previously received the  3M LED 5000  and the 3M LED 6000 on earlier occassions and I was really curious to find out what enhancements 3M has done to its study lamp

What captivated me when we boxed the lamp was that it had a circular disc like  design for the light instead of the streamline LED designs that we have seen in their previous models.

This new design minimizes the chance of blind spots around the table as a bigger area is illuminated by the lamp.

As you can see without a study lamp there is a shadow formed on the storybook . Once the  P1610 is switched on the shadows simply dissapear.

Some else new with the 3M LED P1610 Polarizing Lamp is the ability for the user to change the LED color from a Cool White to a Warm  White.  With 5 different color selections there is certainly a color to achieve the optimal lighting for ones optimal reading pleasure.   With 5 level brightness adjustment , you can have lux levels from 200 all the way up to 1000!!

3M’s polarizing filter technology reduces the glare by almost 80% and only allows comfortable light to filter through without the emission of harmful UV rays.

The 3M Air Guided Technology reduces the chance of multi shadows making it easy on the eyes.

With a 5 color and 5 level of brightness change  the workspace is easily altered to suit the different needs of the user.

Retailing at $289 the  3M LED P1610 Polarizing lamp can be found in most major electronic stores.

Best care for wounds with Nexcare Sensitive Skin

Being the only girl with two elder brothers, Tiger girl has grown up loving spending time outdoors at playgrounds.  She loves being in the park  climbing structures and constantly challenges herself to be able to keep up with her elder brothers.

This girl is quite the daredevil and is not afraid of heights. She gets an adrenaline rush for attempting what may seem to be the near impossible for her age. As a result, she often ends up with grazed hands and knees when she misses her footing and slips and falls. Ouch!!

Even though Tiger girl has quite a high tolerance for pain however sometimes the oozing blood from the wounds get to her and she she ends up bawling due to the pain that she is experiencing.

My Experience 

As an experience mom of 3, I always carry plasters  with me so that I handle boo-boos immediately when they happen.

The boys used to get scraps and cuts  very often when they were younger  if they fell at the playground or accidentally hit against a playscape. The plasters  kept within my wallet get used up very quickly.

I have tried different  brands of bandages  with the boys.  The plasters that we used either stuck  too tightly to the skin and  made the boys squeal when it was taken off or   doesn’t even adhere to the skin.

The experience that I had with 3M Nexcare Sensitive  Skin Bandages, Adhesive Pads and Tape had been really eye opening.

The latest  bandages  from Nexcare Sensitive Skin Range by 3M are specially crafted and  does not cause any comfort or redness from the peel caused by sensitive reaction to the bandage during removal.

3M ™ Sensitive skin silicone adhesive allows the force of removal to be experienced in the adhesive. This new range of product  literally “falls off” without tugging at the sensitive skin of young old or fragile.

I have been impressed with the  how durable the  Nexcare Sensitive Skin  bandages are and how easy and painless it is to remove them.

I do not need to endure any more hassles of my  kids screaming in pain when bandages are removed as their skin is not tugged on during the removal process.

You can  watch the Sensitive Skin Demo below to see how gentle the 3M Nexcare bandages are as compare to other leading brands in the market.

My girl gets scrapes quite often. I  normally put a plaster to cover the wound and prevent it from being infected when it occurs.

With the assortment of sizes of plasters one can easily find an appropriate size to cover the wound.  Being clinically designed for sensitive and fragile skin it didn’t make her skin turn red when it was removed.

  • Made from Hypoallegenic material
  • Latex Free
  • Ease to peel out from the packaging. Even Tiger girl could  put on the plaster herself without hassle
  • Water and moisture resistant.
  • Available in three different sizes

Recently Tiger girl got some scrapes on her hands when she fell while running around in the park. As you see (from the picture below ) quite a large area of her arm was injured.  A single plaster would not be large enough to cover the whole surface area and several plasters would have to be used to prevent an infection from occurring. I decided to use their adhesive pads instead of sticking multiple plasters on her hand.

To ensure that the adhesive pad remained snugly on Tiger girl’s arm I used the tape to reinforce it. This tape is extremely easy to use and you do not even need to use a scissors to tear it off from the roll.

What we liked about the 3M Adhesive Pads and Tape

  • 3M™ Sensitive skin silicone adhesive allows the force of removal to be experienced in the adhesive making the removal pain free.
  • the tape is easy to be torn and doesn’t cause chafing of the skin.
  • Easy to re-position without losing its adhesive properties.

This new range of 3M Nexcare Sensitive Range is not only for kids. It was  formulated for individuals with sensitive skin.   It is ideal  for the  very old, very young, those with fragile skin due to  chronic illness, skin with lots of hair, skin prone to adverse reactions from adhesives or skin disorders such as eczema.

It certainly receives a thumbs up from me and Tiger girl.
