Another month, another beauty round-up. Here’s a quick (ish) summary of this month’s launches and also a few inexpensive products that I have discovered and liked. Oh, and a few Mother’s Day suggestions just in case you had forgotten. As I say in the video, most mothers would appreciate any beautiful pampering treat, so have a trawl though some older posts – including the Valentine’s gift guide and the Christmas videos – if you’re stuck for ideas! The shopping list for this video is beneath the video pane.

    Here here for Bio Oil! I haven’t used it on stretch marks but it works a treat on scars however my friend (who has had three children) swears by Bio Oil. Plus it smells nice!

    Hi Ruth

    I’m having trouble watching this video, it’s not playing properly just a blank White screen at first and then your just jumping about so it’s not really watchable. Is anyone else having this problem or is it just me?

    This question has nothing to do with your video. LOL. I was just wondering if you knew of any products that get rid of stretch marks. There are so many out there that claim to and I was just wondering if you knew of any that really work. Thanks!!!

      I haven’t suffered from them, but I have heard that Bio Oil is quite good and at present I am trying out Stri Vectin which claims to reduce them.. Anyone reading this have any tried and tested products? x
