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.

With Mother’s Day just a few days away men all around the world are racing into stores to pick up some last minute gifts for their beloved partners, wives and mothers. Of course they only want the best for their favourite mum but while that beautifully wrapped skincare pack from your local chemist may look lovely it is probably hiding a long list of nasty ingredients that you don’t want near your mum at all!

Aden + Anais Ultra Gentle LotionAt Aden + Anais they have got precious bundles and their mamas covered with a wonderful range of naturally-derived skincare products that are ‘gentle enough for baby, yet sophisticated enough for you’. We all look after our most precious little bundles with utmost care and it is time we do the same for ourselves and other mums, we deserve it. The Aden + Anais skincare range consists of 5 great products to keep you clean, soft, smooth and fragrant from top to toe.

Aden + Anais Bubble BathI don’t know about you but at our house bath time is 90% fun and 10% cleaning, the kids spend ages laughing, playing and splashing and they’re sad when they have to come out. A few small capfuls of tear-free Aden + Anais Bubble Bath ($24.95) will turn an ordinary bath into a sea of bubbles and leave a wonderful scent of Australian sandalwood. The addition of pawpaw fruit has a moisturising effect perfect for sensitive newborn and mama skin.

Aden + Anais Hair + Body WashThe same fabulous natural ingredients can be found in the Aden + Anais Hair + Body Wash ($24.95), a fantastic all-in-one product for the whole family that makes the daily clean very easy and smells great. Like the rest of the Aden + Anais skincare range it is free from phytoestrogen, parabens, petroleum oils, phthalates, gluten and soy so you can enjoy it with confidence. If you have a wriggly baby like I do you’ll love the pump flacon, you only need one hand to apply a small amount to your baby’s head.

Aden + Anais Stretch Mark Reducing CreamSome expecting mothers get lots, some just a few and some (lucky) others get none, they come in many shapes and colours and none of us like them, I am of course talking about stretch marks. Whether you are a mama-to-be or a new mum the Aden + Anais Stretch Mark Reducing Cream ($39.95) is specifically created for you to help reduce the appearance of, and even prevent, the stretch marks that many of us fear and suffer from as a result of pregnancy. Apply religiously twice daily during and after pregnancy and watch the shea butter and natural-grade darutoside work their magic, you could see results in as a little as two weeks!

Aden + Anais Soothing OintmentThe last, and my absolute favourite, product in the range is the Aden + Anais Soothing Ointment ($39.95). I first discovered this ‘magical’ ointment last year and since then it has become the go-to solution for many little and big skin ‘problems’ in our home. We use it on chapped lips and red noses that have become sore from lots of blowing, it soothes little scrapes and shaving cuts, moistens dry patches, relieves nappy rash and much more. This nice big jar will go a long way, a real mama must-have!
