MY SKINCARE SECRETS

8 Jan

FullSizeRender (16)
,There are many different lotions and potions in my bathroom cabinet but, like most of you i'm guessing, there are only a select few that I really couldn't live without. Some are cult favourites, others are just my own personal recommendation. Skincare + beauty. Here's my routine.

First up cleanse, tone and moisturise. I have always been a Clarins girl, but recently I switched skincare to Jurlique. My love affair with Jurlique began on a trip to Australia about five years ago, where I was introduced to rose water mist. I have been using it ever since, a bottle e ... Read More

So you already know I'm a Jurlique fan. Rosewater mist is a permanent fixture on my bathroom shelf, in my gym bag, handbag and at the time hospital bag. I basically can't live without it when i'm feeling tired and my skin needs a boost. (All the time.) So it was really exciting to discover that there is also a range for the little ones. I never knew?

I received a gorgeous package just the other day with all the necessary baby bits. Lavender infused essential oils that are designed to soothe and care for a babies sensitive skin, found within a barrier cream, moisturiser, ... Read More

KOKOSO BABY

One perk of my blog is the opportunity to sample new products. I get many daily requests from different brands. As a busy mum of two, also running my own business, it's important not to say yes to everyone. I simply don't have the time, nor the inclination. If it's something that I would never look twice at, you won't ever find it on Mumzynot. In this way I can also keep things totally honest and true.

So, one such product that made the cut then - Kokoso baby. Simple, organic and pure, it does exactly what it says on the pot. 'The highest quality, natural, organic, coconut oil f ... Read More

WINTER SKIN

I don't know about you but winter always plays havoc with my skin. Being nearly 8 months pregnant I have a little hormonal help on my side (that third trimester glow is peeking through) but cold weather and central heating are not the best combination for anyone's skin. Lack of sunshine does not help either. Usually about this time of year we are jetting off somewhere exotic, no such luck. How I am missing my winter sun.

On a more positive note there is help at hand, thanks to some great new skincare discoveries. (And those old favorites - Estee Lauder's advanced night repair is ... Read More

BLOOM AND BLOSSOM

Bloom-and-Blossom
The latest must-have maternity skincare range is from Bloom and Blossom. As well as offering the ultimate in mummy and baby pampering, Bloom and Blossom is the confirmed product of choice for the Duchess of Cambridge. Kate is now using the range as part of her post baby, body-beautiful routine. Worth a go then, no?

Personally I love the sound of the rejuvenating facial spritz . Great for your hospital bag or simply when you need a little pick-me-up. The mother to be gift set would also make a great baby shower gift.

Say hello to Dreamtone by Lancome - A seaweed facial that is said to be the ultimate in hydration and the latest must-have treatment for skin pigmentation. Kate Middleton is reported to be a big fan.
