Helloooo, it’s been so so long again since I wrote a blog post and I’ve really missed it. So I’ve decided I’m going to try and post much more frequently and today I’m kickstarting it with some products that I love using, they are luxurious and gorgeous and I think most mummas will like them. I love them and I know my mum would also love them.
I’ve been really making time for selfcare recently because I think it’s so important and makes me so happy to take just an hour or sometimes even less to do something that makes me feel good. I have a bath almost every single evening once Rudies gone to sleep and I’ve had my dinner and it really helps me to relax after a busy day of parenting. I have been using the Aromatherapy Associates Oils and they are just so gorgeous. I have a box of all different ones, so I can pick which one I want to use depending on how I feel, for example de stress, revive, relax. You put the oil into your hands and take deep breaths, which relaxes you anyway (so it’s double relaxing) and then rub the oil onto your chest before getting into the bath or shower. Your whole house will smell like the most luxurious spa!
On the flip side to a relaxing evening bath I also love my morning shower when Rudie has has nap. And I’ve been using The Ren Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium Anti Fatigue Shower Gel. It smells so good and it’s so fresh, after using it i feel awake and ready for the day (this and my coffee run) ! Also the entire bottle is made with ocean plastic which is amazing.
Next up, I have always loved beauty and skincare but recently I’ve turned it up a notch because being a mum has definitely given me darker eye bags and a few more wrinkles in my forehead and I want to try and slow down the aging process if I can and I also want my skin to be the best it can be for my wedding day in May. The first product I’ve been using and love is the Ren Evercalm overnight recovery balm. It’s an oily texture and melts into your skin overnight making it feel so nourished and hydrated in the morning. My skin is the best it’s been in a long time and this product has definitely contributed towards this.
I’ve also found this incredible Estée Lauder eye cream that i randomly came across at the airport. It’s called Advanced Night Repair Eye concentrate Matrix but I actually use it morning and night. I have used so so many different eye creams and my dark circles have been my pet hate since before Rudie came along and I think that it’s kept my eyes really hydrated and plumped. It also sinks into the skin nicely and make up sits well on top.
And lastly the This Works Deep pillow Spray is part of my nightly ritual always. I even have mini ones so whether I’m in my own bed or on holiday, I have to have it. The blend of essential oils it meant to calm your nerves, help you fall asleep faster , relax you and contribute to a continuous sleep which is what every person wants, especially new mummas or mums with anxiety.
