“I get plenty of pampering.” –said no mom ever
Which is exactly why we’re sharing seven new products we recently received for review that’ll help you to get your pamper on whether you’re a new mom or a seasoned mama.
There’s nothing like a good bath to get your relax on, and we recently got to try these blends that include Epsom and sea salts with essential oils. Not only do they smell heavenly, but they feel heavenly. And if you’ve got sore muscles, bonus! The Epsom salts totally help with that.
Motherhood is a tough job — and sometimes a job that doesn’t get a lot of praise or kudos day in and day out. That’s just one of the reasons why we love the Chari-Tee from Boob Design. It’s the ultimate pep talk and present for other mothers — or for yourself! When you wear it, in the mirror it reads back, “Damn you’re a good mother!” Which is awesome. In addition, 5 percent of the revenue for the shirts go to Every Mother Counts, a nonprofit whose goal is to make pregnancy and delivery safe for all mothers everywhere. Another reason why this shirt is a pampering fave? It’s comfy and even has a raw edge neckline with smart nursing access hidden under the front panel. Perfection!
Get your pamper on with two new beauty products that help to improve the quality and health of your skin — whether it’s from clogged pores, pollution, or even blue light. The Somnifera Root Mist is a hydrating, soothing and pollution-blocking spray that you can put on over or under makeup to moisturize and protect. And the Bambusa Blackhead Banisher cleanses pores using a mix of charcoal, antibacterial volcanic ash, and antioxidant-rich bamboo extract. It also helps to soothe the skin with gentle ingredients like aloe, sacred lotus flower, and allantoin.
Is there anything more pampering than a good night’s sleep on a bed that feels absolutely amazing? While these 100-percent organic and hypoallergenic eucalyptus sheets can’t guarantee your little one sleeps through the night, they are designed to help you prevent breakouts, regulate body temperature, and give you a great night’s sleep. They feel fantastic, too — soft and luxurious — and they even help the environment, as they’re 10 times more sustainable than cotton bedding.
Now, this is a really unique product in that you can wear it as a mask OR drink it as a superfood tonic. Crazy, right? Said to clear pores, smooth fine lines, and reduce redness, it’ll also help you to better handle stress, sleep, and detox.
Not exactly the most traditional way to pamper yourself, but we consider good nutrition — that tastes really great — to be essential to mamas feeling good. Protiva is the first and only collagen protein drink proven safe and effective for pregnant women and new moms. I’m taking the pregnancy formula in vanilla (It’s super tasty! I love mixing mine with a little almond milk, frozen spinach, banana, and almond butter — tastes almost as good as ice cream), but there’s also a new mom formula. Definitely ask your doctor about it!
I recently got this from my bestie (hi, Tish!), and am totally smitten with it. Besides being just pretty, this crystal roller is said to help improve blood circulation, reduce puffiness, and even reduce pore sizes. You simply roll over your face in a particular way (instructions are included) and it only takes a minute to do, but it feels really good and rejuvenating. It’s become my take-a-minute-for-mama go-to!
How often do you pamper yourself? I can’t wait for warmer weather to rock that Boob T-shirt! –Jenn
