When you have a big family like ours your days are filled with wonderful amounts of hugs and kisses, laughs and giggles, jokes and joys. Unfortunately five kids also come with their fair share of tears over scrapes, bruises, rashes, redness and other minor skin dramas that can bother little people. You may not be able to carry a big first aid kit everywhere, but you can always count on this handy dose of compact care:
Packed in the prettiest little tin this ‘wonder salve’ by much loved New Zealand skincare label Antipodes is an absolute must-have for your handbag or baby bag, it has so many great uses that it will soon become your go-to product when your skin needs a helping hand.
Made with pure, natural ingredients like Australian Tea Tree Oil, New Zealand Totara and antioxidant-rich Vinanza Grape the amazing Saviour Skin Balm (RRP $48, 75g) is gentle yet powerful at the same time. All ingredients are carefully selected for their unique skin saving properties, creating an impressive skin rescue product that is antibacterial, anti fungal and encourages cell and skin repair where you need it most.
Whether it’s dry skin, cracked heels, chapped lips, irritated bottoms, rough cuticles, little grazes, bruises, sunburn, sore muscles or red patches, Saviour Skin Balm instantly hydrates, softens and conditions. It can even be used to shape eyebrows or style hair, now that’s what I call multi-purpose! It can safely be used on sensitive skin and is suitable for all ages making it a perfect choice for the whole family. Bonus: You only need a small amount so this generously sized jar goes a very long way.
A sneaky little recommendation for tired, sleep deprived mamas: I know at the end of a long you want nothing more than to roll into bed and sleep, but please don’t neglect your skin! Applying this lovely Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream (RRP $62) takes just a few minutes and in the morning you’ll be so glad you did. It smells absolutely amazing, it’s absorbed quickly and leaves your skin feeling soft and elastic.
The moisturising, refreshing, rejuvenating effects are a result of premium ingredients like New Zealand Manuka Honey, Avocado Oil and Vinanza Grape, whilst the wonderful fragrance is thanks so Ylang Ylang, Jasmine and Sandalwood. When I first used this lovely cream it reminded me of a day spa: a luxury feel, a delicious smell and instant results that last well into the next day, and all of that in the comfort of your own home.
