Shower moisturisers are so underrated, I mean how many brands offer them? I discovered the Nivea one when I was pregnant and included it in my Pregnancy Skin Care Favourites. Now I’ve tried the Superdrug Vitamin E one I think I prefer this one out of the two.
First of all the scent is just like a regular moisturiser so nothing strong or off putting and it has a similar consistency. A little of this really does go a long way and it can be so easy to squirt too much out.
This product makes your skin super soft so you don’t need to apply a body butter or lotion after the shower and lets face it who can always be bothered to do that?
It’s recommended for normal to dry skin types and costs £2.99 for 250ml.
The Vitamin E range is great and has everything from micellar water to face scrubs and every other skincare product you might need.
As always it’s cruelty free, vegan and vegetarian friendly.
As the title suggests this post is all about the skin care products ive been using throughout pregnancy and have found quite useful. Currently I’m at 38 weeks and desperate for my little man to arrive! There are quite a few brands out there that cater specifically for pregnancy and ‘bump care’ but I have been using products that are suitable for everybody.
First of all is the shower products and if like me you have those sluggish days sometimes you just want a quick pamper and with the following products you can have just that.
A lifesaving product is the Wilkinson Sword Intuition Razor, with its huge soap block around the blades it makes it quick and easy to shave without having to mess around with shaving gel etc.. I personally loved this product before pregnancy but I’ve appreciated it a whole lot more since! You can get it in sensitive which is pictured above or there’s a pink handled razor which I believe is shea butter. You can buy the razor heads separate so there’s no need to throw the whole thing away after use.
Body Scrubs: This isn’t really a necessity but for some soft exfoliation (especially when you get a dry bump!) then I’ve found Boots Extracts and Sanctuary Spa to be really gentle on the skin. My Boots scrub is actually a festive one from a few years ago but you can find a whole range of scents in store/online, it doesn’t feel like your traditional scrub and is quite soft to touch and doesn’t feel harsh on the skin or have harsh scrubbing particles in it.
The Sanctuary Spa Moisturising Butter Scrub is also a firm favourite of mine, it’s again a gentle scrub but without the need to moisturise after use, which when you get to the latter stages of pregnancy is a great thing. The only issue I have with the packaging is it isn’t very sturdy and can feel flimsy at times which makes it awkward to get the product out.
Finally a product I’ve only been using since pregnancy is the Nivea In Body Shower Moisturiser, with this product you use your usual shower gel then step out of the water to apply the shower moisturizer to then wash it off and believe me your skin ends up so soft! The best way to use the product is to use as little as possible otherwise it can feel a bit greasy.
By no means are these products intended to help with common pregnancy issues such as stretchmark’s etc… they are just products that I found have made life a lot easier!
Despicable mother Josie Cunningham who sparked outrage when she received a £4800 boob job for free continues to kick up drama wherever she goes. The mom who was set to sue the NHS over her boob job which apparently made her unhappy because her glamour model career didn’t go to plan also received another free Botox operation to sort out her condition hyperhidrosis which causes excessive sweating.
The latest scandal to reach the news is that the mother of two who is now pregnant with her third child (father unknown) wishes to have an abortion just to go on the reality TV show Big Brother, she claims producers approached her before the pregnancy but because of her condition they don’t wish to continue the contract. After the modelling career failed Josie turned to the escort life for ‘easy money’ she is unaware if the father is a client who paid her £1000 for sex or whether or not it was a casual fling with a friend. Maybe instead of chasing fame and free operations off the NHS she should focus on the children she already has.
This new scandal has caused outrage for so many reasons:
- She’s already claiming to have free dental treatment whilst she’s pregnant
- She’s glamorising abortions
- She’s a fame hungry mess
- She should focus on her own children
Many people who have suffered the loss of a child will be affected by this vile act, for those who cant have children for medical reasons will not want to know that someone out there who has the opportunity to give the gift of life will give it all up just to try and become famous. Fame isn’t everything so maybe Josie should get that into her head before deciding to abort a life, abortion is a hard decision and shouldn’t be considered for vanity reasons.
If she goes ahead with the abortion and does land on Big Brother does she really think the viewers will back her and launch her into stardom? The glamour model career didn’t exactly go to plan so why would anyone want to see her become famous for all the wrong reasons. She gives Britain a bad name and people should stop feeding the troll.
