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:

Saviour Skin Balm

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.

Antipodes Saviour Skin BalmMade 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.

Antipodes Night CreamA 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.

Big Baby Shower – Day 14

Everywhere you go people are talking about how radiant and beautiful the Duchess of Cambridge looked during her pregnancy and especially shortly after the birth of princess Charlotte. Now I know most of you (including myself) can’t afford a personal hairdresser and make-up artist like Kate but we can learn from her beauty regime and add a touch of royalty approved luxury to our own skin thanks to Trilogy:

Trilogy Rosehip

As recorded in the media Her Royal Highness ‘uses rosehip oil in her daily skincare regiment’, to be more precise she ‘applies Trilogy’s Rosehip Oil, an all-natural oil that keeps wrinkles at bay’. Looking at her beautiful skin I think we all need some of that magic potion and you’ll be surprised how budget friendly it is.

Certified Organic Rosehip OilWomen around the globe are discovering the wonderful results that can be achieved with just a few drops of Trilogy’s pure, high quality Certified Organic Rosehip Oil (RRP $21.95, 20ml). Independent clinical studies show Certified Organic Rosehip Oil helps improve the appearance of scars, stretchmarks, fine lines and wrinkles. As a mum who has earnt her fair share of ‘tiger stripes’ I wish I had discovered this great product earlier, at least this time around I may avoid adding to my collection.

Very Gentle Calming SerumAnother hot favourite amongst expecting and new mums is the Very Gentle Calming Serum (RRP $42.95, 30ml), a light and soothing serum that helps calm fragile, irritated or intolerant skin. Being fragrance free it doesn’t aggravate my nausea and the absence of essential oils makes it a perfectly safe choice during pregnancy. If you are looking for effective hydration, but don’t want to slather a thick, suffocating cream on your skin you will absolutely love this gentle product.

Remington – Style Therapy

 Mum  Comments Off on Remington – Style Therapy
Dec 192011

I am sure I am not the only mum who hardly ever gets photographed with her children. It is not that I don’t want to but it just never happens. We take photo’s of the the kids all the time and I love looking at old shots to see how much they have changed. A few months ago, on a day where we all looked our Sunday’s best, my husband suggested to program the camera so we could all quickly jump in a picture together. It took a few shots but it worked and we have done it several times since then. This is our latest family photo taken that way, I love this picture and everyone is commenting on my hair which is looking fabulous thanks to the Remington Style Therapy.

We all know straightening your hair can be rather tough on your hair leaving it looking dry and tired. Of course you can buy some (expensive) potions and lotions to help you out but that is yet another expense and another thing to think about and make time for. Instead you could use the newly released Remington Style Therapy, featuring high-grade, porous ceramic plates that release a blend of nourishing frizz-resistant conditioners whilst you straighten your hair. You’ll end up with a silky smooth finish and it also prevents moisture loss to leave your locks healthy and nourished without you putting in any extra effort! This makes the Remington Style Therapy the perfect styling tool for busy mums like me.

Using innovative advanced coating technology the Remington Style Therapy delivers shiny, straight, healthy hair in an instant, in fact it can reach a variable high heat of up to 230°C in just 15 seconds. If you love the look of stylish sleek locks but you are worried about damaging your hair you can trust the Style Therapy to provide that extra care and protection by releasing frizz resistant micro conditioners, without it costing you extra time or money. The salon swivel cord lets you move around with ease whilst the superior ceramic plates are super smooth and designed to offer excellent contact between hair and plate so you achieve the desired look much faster.

The Remington Style Therapy (RRP $73.95) is available from leading electrical retailers and comes with a generous two-year warranty.
