Weleda Baby Care Review and Giveaway

logostarterkitcreambath

Weleda is one of my new favorite companies for skincare products.

A couple of weeks ago, I was sent several products from their baby care line to review and am quite pleased with them all! The standards they hold for their products are very high as each contains no synthetic preservatives, fragrances, chemicals, or anything else potentially harmful or not natural! Their products are hands down 100% all natural and effective! They aim to use only the purest wild-crafted, organically and Biodynamically® cultivated ingredients for thier products. Toxins, additives and raw materials from mineral oils simply won’t do!

I first tried out the Calendula Baby Cream which general purpose is best for dry, chapped, or reddened skin. Basically, this is used to prevent diaper rashes and clear up that  excess moisture on your little ones bum, but it is also great to use anywhere else on your baby. It has a great texture, not too thick and easy to apply without getting messy. The plant essences smell is nice and not too strong. Best of all, it helps soothe any skin irritation.

Next up is their Diaper-Care  ointment which works wonders! My daughter came down with a diaper rash when trying some new foods last week and I got the opportunity to give this ointment a go.The constancy of it is so wonderful! It’s not super thick like those I’ve used before and got all messy with and it’s not to loose either. The smell  like their other products, is quite pleasant! The results, My daughter’s rash was gone by the next morning! I’m still amazed how quickly it worked.  Another thing I’d like to mention is just a little bit goes a long way!facecream

I also got to try out the Calendula Cream Bath! I’m going to admit that I’ve been enjoying bath time along with my little one a bit more now. I simply added a couple drops of Calendula Cream Bath to the bath water and stirred it around to unleash a very soothing bath time experience for my little one. I love the smell as I’ve used other bath creams with aromatic smells and they were just to much! Following the bath, I applied Weleda Calendula oil to my daughter’s arms, legs, and back and she must have been in heaven because she never really stays still very long since she’s been mobile!

Weleda has more than just their baby line of products, they also have regular skin care products featuring Creams & Lotions, Facial Care, Body Oils, Bath & Shower, Deodorants, Hair Care, Men’s Care, and Oral Care. When I am pregnant again, I’ll defiantly be investing in their Pregnancy Body Oil and their Nursing Tea! If you are wanting to try some of these out before investing in a whole larger sized product, they offer travel sized and gift kits to do just that.

If you are looking to get a hold of some of these wonderful products you can find them on their website along with being available at Target, Whole Foods, and select health food stores.

Blush | Your Topless Undershirt Review and Giveaway

logo

I’m hear to tell you all about Blush topless undershirts, that is if you haven’t’ already discovered them for yourself!  What these shirts are is a strapless tube top shirt that you wear under you regular shirt! They are made from a soft poly/rayon/spandex blend which allows for plenty of stretching and are very comfortable.  These fit nice and snug not too tight at all! What’s great is that these leave no sign of a line under your top shirt and they don’t shrink in the wash!

I was pretty happy when I received mine in the mail. It came in a cute little laced draw string bag that’s the the same color as the undershirt you purchase. I like that you can neatly fold your undershirt back into the bag so it’s tucked safely away till you are ready to wear it out again! Another thing I love about the little bag personally is that it’s easy to find right away in my dresser!

These shirts are great if you want to add a bit of style and sass to your latest threads along with covering the gap between short shirts and low rise jeans! I think it’s great that these shirts also are available in maternity! I could have used these and not have had to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe in my second trimester! They’ve got you covered with a wide variety of colors to some pretty popping patterns!

Passion Spice Giveaway and Review

passionspice
ellenursingbra

When I learned about Passion Spice for the first time I was very excited! Their company offers a wonderful line of  maternity and nursing lingerie that’s made to flatter our growing and changing figures before and after pregnancy.

Since I breastfeed my daughter, I requested to review the Elle Nursing Bra and matching bottoms.  I couldn’t wait till I received it and I must say I am pleased and it was as it definitely worth the wait. The Elle nursing bra has an adorable cute ruffle trim in either purple or turquoise depending on which color you get along with ruffled straps! This bra is not only elegant but sexy too. It’s my top favorite and it’s my most stylishly attractive nursing bra. It  goes well with the Jade Bikini which I received or the Eliza Thong if you are bolder than me!   I wanted to mention that my husband honestly did now know it was a nursing bra, he thought it was something new from Victoria’s Secrets!

I found the Elle Nursing bra functional and comfortable as the the inner half cups and microfiber fabric to help keep me dry is soft and supple on my skin. I found the under wire great to support my breasts as I was nursing. The adjustable straps have 3 closures to help find the size I need to fit perfectly and I found the snaps easy to use for fast access nursing. I have an impatient one when in comes to nursing so the quicker she’s attached the better it is for everyone.

I know my next pregnancy where to look for lingerie! Passion Spice baby dolls are absolutely adorable and like I mentioned before, they can be worn at any stage in pregnancy and beyond. Available in red and black running from sizes small through XXL you sure to find the perfect fit. Maybe my next pregnancy my husband will be so distracted by me in one of the sexy lingerie intimates that he’ll stop worrying about injuring or bothering the baby while they are in my belly! Honestly though, a lot of men feel the same way and trust me that does not help us pregnant mommies feel any better about our changing bodies!

Guess what, one of  my wonderful readers is getting the chance to win a gift certificate worth $25 to Passion Spice! You can get anything you want and trust me when I say it possibly will take you a while to decided after looking through all their wonderful products.

Win it!

1. Visit Passion Spice and let me know what you would like to get with your gift certificate.
