nSpa: 'Mum to Be' Range

I first came across the 'Mum to Be' range from nSpa in my local supermarket and was quite intrigued by the range as a lot of pregnancy and new mum products tend to be quite expensive, but these were really reasonably priced. 

I'm not sure whether it's just me, or whether it's pregnant women in general, but this heat has been an absolute killer for me. My feet have been absolutely boiling, if not burning. I was so glad to come across the Cooling Leg and Foot Gel and thought I would give it a go. The gel contains peppermint oil and is very noticeable! The gel smells absolutely gorgeous and is definitely cooling. I've been applying this to my feet when they've been extremely warm and it's done the job. You only need to apply a small pea sized amount to your feet and your legs to notice the cooling sensation from the peppermint. 

Cooling Leg and Foot Gel £4.00

I bought the foot gel before I was kindly contacted by nSpa themselves to test their 'Mum to Be' range. They sent me a tub of the Moisturising Bump Butter which I couldn't be happier with. I'm at that stage now (19 weeks!) where most mums start to notice the niggling little stretch marks and the tummy stretching so this arrived at a perfect time! Now I am a bigger lady with curves, ahem, and I already have a few stretch marks, which to be honest don't bother me in the slightest, and I know I'll be adding more sooner or later! Anyway, I've been using the butter for a few weeks and I have really noticed a difference. My skin overall feels a lot more smooth and I've noticed some of the stretch marks I have are appearing a lot lighter and fading slightly.

The moisturiser has a body butter consistency and contains shea butter, rosehip oil and vitamin E. It has a really delicate and almost unnoticeable fragrance when still in the pot, but when applied to the body leaves a really faint and soothing scent of rosehip which is really refreshing, especially for this pregnant lady with aversions to all kinds of smells

The butter is not just for use on your bump despite the name, and can be used all over the body.

Overall I'm really happy with the nSpa range and I'll be adding more products to my collection as my pregnancy goes on. I'm hoping to pick up one of the bust firming creams and nipple balms later on. As well as hoping I might be lucky and someone may treat me to gift set hehe.
