Pampering myself… and Squidge!

I feel very lucky at the moment… I got not one, but two, baby bump pamper sets for Christmas! My Mum (and Dad, technically!) bought me the Cussons Mum & Me bump gift set, and my brother and future sister-in-law gave me the Sanctuary Spa Ultimate Retreat Hat Box.

I hardly ever get much “girly stuff” for myself, let alone whole pamper sets. I tend to only buy what I absolutely need; shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, that sort of thing! Even when my skin is dry I just use boring moisturisers… or when I’m being particularly self-indulgent, body shop body butter!

With these two gift sets, I can now delight in treats such as “Relax and Unwind Sleep Mist”, “Collagen Boosting Body Butter”, “Cooling Leg and Foot Gel”, and “Relax and Unwind Bath Soak”. I’ve been trying out the various products over the past week and they are all absolutely gorgeous.

The sleep mist in particular has been really calming as I have been having problems getting back to sleep if I wake up in the night, and the various oils and lotions have been fabulous for my increasingly dry and tight-feeling bump! As I said, it’s not often I am self-indulgent with this sort of thing, and I am loving the chance to take a bit of extra time for myself and my expanding baby bump. I would recommend either of these sets for any expectant mums wanting to pamper themselves – and I am very grateful for my family for giving them to me!
