Bring the spa to your home with these fabulous lotions and potions
We’re all about ‘Me Time’ here at Secret Saviours, especially during pregnancy. That’s why we did some digging to find the best beauty products that will hep you bring the spa to you. (It’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it…)
This Regenerating Face Treatment Oil from Espa (£66) is a deeply moisturising face oil to help rejuvenate, firm and protect your skin. It’s infused with jasmine to help tone; carrot oil for a collagen boost; antioxidant avocado and jojoba; frankincense to stimulate cell renewal; and wheatgerm to nourish the skin. Espa says it also “helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and ease the signs of ageing”. It’s the oil that keeps on giving!
Temple Spa’s Sugar Buff scrub (£26) is made with olive oil, fig and pomegranate to help regenerate your skin with silky smooth results. Scented with a blend of essential oils, Temple Spa says the scrub “improves lymphatic flow to remove toxins”. Paraben-free, it will dissolve in the bath, so you won’t feel like you’re sitting in sand.
Follow up your scrub with Champneys’ Blissful Bump shower cream (£6). Made for mums-to-be, this indulgent cream lightly foams to leave your skin feeling soft and moisturised with a soothing cumin and ginger scent.
If a good soak is more your style, try this Skin Nourishing Milk Bath from Elemis(£42). From their Sp@Home Body Soothing range, its formula was inspired by Cleopatra’s ancient bathing ritual. The milk protein base is rich in vitamins, amino acids and minerals and is made with plant collagen from oak extract and Japanese camellia oil, which is great for the skin.
Next up is a true all-rounder. From Body Shop comes this Polynesia Monoi Miracle Oil (10). Inspired by Polynesian spa rituals and scented with gardenia and coconut, you can use it as a body moisturiser, massage oil, bath oil or hair conditioner. The Wonder Woman of beauty products!
Last but certainly not least is a product we have a totally unbiased soft spot for. It’s The Secret SavioursAnti Stretch Mark Pack (£69.95). This amazing pack includes a patented Anti Stretch Mark Band. Clever clothing for your bump, the band helps protect you from getting stretch marks while offering under-bump and back support. Wear the band with our soothing Day Gel, which prepares your skin to gently grip the band. Then, relax and unwind with our moisturising Night Cream to ensure your skin remains soft and supple.
