I realised last week that I didn’t ever properly finish my round-up of the best pregnancy and new-Mum beauty products. I did some quite extensive testing of various stretch-mark oils and creams and the results can be found here (best budget) and here (best of the rest) but I must do a summary of my favourite pregnancy skincare and makeup when I get a chance. Perhaps after Christmas when I’m not knee-deep in cinnamon-orange candles and sparkly tree decorations!
But the Neal’s Yard Remedies Mother Organic Collection (here) gets bumped up the list because I think that it’s a brilliant present for Mums-to-be. This was one of my favourite body sets when I was pregnant – I found the bath oil truly relaxing, the body balm great for when I wanted something to do a bit of a lengthier massage with and the massage oil – oh, the massage oil! It contains neroli essential oil, which takes me to my happy place, and has a beautiful texture that keeps skin soft and supple. I’d use it still if I hadn’t ploughed through the bottle so quickly – there’s no reason to stop using it post-partum, I just had loads of other bits and pieces to write about.
The products in the Mother Organic Collection have been very carefully formulated to be suitable for pregnant women. I avoided many of my usual pampering products as I tend to go for some quite full-on aromatherapy stuff; the Neal’s Yard Remedies products are gentle, non-nauseating but still manage to do the trick on the “calming and relaxing” front. If you’re looking for a box-set to buy a Mum-to-be this Christmas then you can’t go far wrong with this one…
