gold standard 

With a name like Gold Pants, you’d expect a lot from this pull-up diaper from Huggies. Check out its five- layer dry structure, which is made with “magic” gel that locks in urine, promising up to 12 hours of absorbency. 

Its airy top sheet and breathable waistband allow multidimensional air circulation around the diaper so Baby’s waist bum is well ventilated, and two-layer leg guards prevent leakage. The yellow patterns in the centre turn blue when Baby urinates, so you always know when to change her diaper. 

Gold Pants are available from sizes M (six to 12 kg) to XXL (15 to 25kg). Get a pack for $21.95 from major supermarkets and e-commerce sites. Visit

glow with it 

If you’re always blotting your oily skin to keep shine at bay, try these two new products from Bioderma’s Sebium range. Sebium Mat Control ($36.90 for 30ml) is a moisturiser that has gylcerin to hydrate for up to 12 hours, and mattifying micro powders and silicones for shine control of up to eight hours. 

The Sebium Lotion ($33.90 for 200ml) is a non-sticky toner that regulates your skin’s pH level and inhibits the growth of acne bacteria. Its salicylic acid gently exfoliates, while mushroom extract tighens pores. 

The entire Sebium range is free of soap and alcohol and noncomedogenic, and lightly perfumed with an allergen- free fragrance. Find them at major Guardian and Watsons stores, Unity and Lazada. Visit
