Baby Baker Friday - Mama Mio, Pregnancy Skincare

So as you know, I decided that Friday's on the blog would be dedicated to my pregnancy and now, new mummy status.

I know it's not something everyone wants to read about but it is something that I really wanted to do - so I'm doing it - after all, being pregnant and having a beautiful new baby is a huge thing to be happening in my life and I really wanted to share bits and pieces of what is going on amongst these pages.

So here we go

~ Baby Baker Friday ~

Well, it's that time again - baby talk time
(which for me is pritty much the only talk my life consists of right now)

I'm loving every aspect of having a new little one in the house again, she is just perfect.

However, inbetween trying to remember what it is I need to do with her and my current obsession with Pretty Little Liars (I found out who "A" is a few days ago so I'm OK going public with my love for the show - I don't need to fear the spoilers now) my blog has suffered.

But now I've found that myself and Baby Baker are kind of slipping into our own little routine and I've finished all the six seasons of PLL so I'm hoping I can use my free time wisely, avoid any other distractions and begin popping out some more posts.

I mean I'm totally depriving the world of my ramblings if I don't sort myself out aren't I...

And so, with this post I thought I should let you in on some of the pritty brilliant products I have been treating my post-pregnancy body to.

I introduce you to Mama Mio.

You may already be aware of the fact that Baby Baker was six weeks old yesterday (time is flying!) and I received this little bundle of goodies back whilst I was still very heavily pregnant.

The package contained everything I could possibly need to keep my pregnant and new-mummy skin as soft, supple and moisturised as possible.

~ Hallelujah ~

I've been quite lucky throughout both of my pregnancies really in that I only developed a few clusters of quite tiny stretch marks which is something I can't grumble about at all.

But even so I'm still not overly happy with the state of my body at the moment.

I know I should give myself a bit of a break - in the grand scheme of things it has only been six weeks since I, not only had a baby, but had a baby through major surgery...


But I r-e-a-l-l-y can't wait to get back into a size 10 pair of jeans!

But it's not just the whole weight gain side of things that's changed, my skin, particularly the skin around my stomach area is really dry and quite rough to the touch...frankly, it's not pretty at all so I'm over the moon to have the opportunity to work my way through this lovely array of stomach softening lotions and potions.

I'm currently testing out the Tummy Rub Oil, the Goodbye Stretch Marks cream and The Tummy Rub Butter so I don't have full reviews on the end results of these but what I do know is that so far, they are fabulous.

Each product smells great and they actually really compliment each other on the skin.

Each one is packed full of organic ingredients - many of which are well known for their healing powers - exactly what my stretched out, horrible looking skin is calling out for.

They apply beautifully and sink into the skin straight away - even the oil is unique - an oil which isn't particularly oily on the skin - I love it - no oil slick clothing after using this one.

I've very much enjoyed using each of these and fingers crossed, they will help ward off and battle away the stretch marks that I do have as completely as they can...and (I'm holding out for miracles here!) hopefully, will help my body shrink back to normal.

One of the products I received which I have been using, and have been using a lot, particularly back when I was pregnant is "Lucky Legs".

The main pregnancy problem I suffered with was having huge, swollen feet - they were horrible and constantly looked as though they had been inflated with a bicycle pump.

And they constantly ached, were always tender and forever felt painful.

~ Oh how attractive ~

Trust me - my legs did feel very lucky when this was introduced into their lives.

The stuff literally saved me at the end of my pregnancy and I really wish I had have known of it's existence all the way through the nine month period because it is blooming marvellous and I would have bought it by the lorry load.

After a bath I would lather it all over my lower legs, feet and ankles and then simply take ten minutes out for myself.

The cream began to work it's magic after only a few minutes, and the only way I can describe how it felt is to compare it to eating a really strong, airway clearing cough sweet - those that make your nose and chest feel as though they are really cold and stripped bare.

That's exactly how this cream made my legs feel - really cold and tingly but amazingly refreshed and eased.

It was a life saver and I love the stuff - I still lather it on now after a particularly busy day.

I can't recommend it enough and I know, from what I'm seeing so far, every pregnant lady everywhere really needs this whole Mama Mio collection at their disposal.

The results are speaking for themselves
