*I received the following products free of charge in order to give an honest review to my readers.
Pregnancy is a miraculous and beautiful thing! Yet I think we forget to mention all of the serious changes that happen to your body. This is probably a good thing to not scare people away from having children, but lets be real, once you’re in the thick of it, you want to ask the people that came before you how to best deal with these changes!
Welp, 8 months into pregnancy number two, I can tell you that itchy skin, stretch marks, swollen feet, and a bunch of other various aches and pains are par for the course. Especially in the third trimester! Luckily (for you), I’ve tried a bunch of different products and have the skinny for you on a brand that actually works! The Spoiled Mama makes safe pregnancy skin care products that I have been testing for the past few weeks and can officially say I LOVE them.
First, the tummy butter has to be my favorite! This tummy butter for stretch marks is made with ingredients that help keep the skin elastic and feeling moisturized. I personally struggle with dry, itchy skin during the last trimester of pregnancy, so this belly butter is a life saver! And let me tell you, it smells so good that you might be tempted to eat it, haha.
Next for the stretch marks is the Indulge Polish. This is a sugar scrub for stretch marks and also for that dry, itchy skin. Use in the shower as an exfoliant to help avoid stretch marks during pregnancy. It smells fantastic as well – and I love the feeling of peppermint on my skin!
Lastly in the belly department is the Bump Gloss pregnancy stretch mark oil. This blend of oils help prevent pregnancy and postpartum stretch marks. Genetically I should be prone to stretch marks because my mom and grandma had gotten them. I’m currently 32 weeks pregnant and have not ONE stretch mark, so I’m counting my blessings and using these products like crazy to keep them from creeping up!
I would definitely vote in favor of husbands signing a contract for the term of his wife’s pregnancy that foot rubs when requested are a must! This Happy Legs Gel for Tired Cankles is a lifesaver treatment for swollen feet during pregnancy. When your body is carrying all the extra weight that comes with a baby, your feet and ankles carry quite the burden. Every night I lather it on and put socks on to let the magic soak in overnight. It contains aloe which growing up in the southwest, we know and love very much!
As evidenced by the photo, I’ve been using this Luxe-Mama body wash like CRAZY! The scent is a lavender-vanilla smell that has me never wanting to leave the shower. If you look at the body wash you’re currently using, I bet there are some scary ingredients in there! It’s so important, especially while pregnant, that we use toxin free products in order to product our changing bodies and our growing babies. This pregnancy safe body wash is absolutely the way to go. Looks like I need to order more, haha!
Lastly, the Bottom of the 9th Safe Tea for Pregnancy is a third trimester tea that helps prepare your body for childbirth. Having birthed a kiddo before, I can attest that its hard work and anything that can help your body prepare for it is a must. This tea has 100% organic ingredients that help strengthen and tone the uterus. I love the fact that its a loose tea to use with an infuser tong and that it can be served either hot or chilled!
Once again, to get 20% your order, use the code BASPOIL18BL at www.thespoiledmama.com and enjoy being a spoiled mama during your pregnancy! A bonus is that they have amazing postpartum and breastfeeding products as well – go treat yourself mama, you deserve it.
