Welcome to another guide to help you with Christmas shopping this year – this time, for natural skincare gifts for new Mums. Whether you want to surprise an experienced Mama or an expectant first-time Mum, it’s fair to assume that either will love a thoughtful gift that they can enjoy for a bit of ‘me time’. Becoming a Mum definitely makes you redefine priorities in life and as you run around trying to juggle five hundred balls at the same time, it’s easy to slip out of your usual skincare routine. So surprise a new Mum with a gift that will encourage them to look after their skin again. If they haven’t yet switched to natural skincare and don’t pay attention to skincare ingredients, you may also want to share my post on Skincare ingredients to avoid when pregnant and/ or breastfeeding.
Below I’ve listed nine of my top skincare products that will help a busy Mum to pamper herself and nourish her skin from the outside. I personally love all of Weleda’s products, including those for Mums and children, but for this guide, I’ve picked their Skin Food set as the cream works wonders on dry skin, plus it’s a great multi-tasker (you can read a full review in my post Two hand care essentials for a busy Mum). I’ve also picked Weleda’s massage oil which can be used to ease any aches and pains during labour, or for a bit of at-home pampering after a tiring day.
Another great British brand who does amazing natural products is Lyonsleaf. I’ve chosen their gift set which contains their award-winning Beauty Balm, again another wonderful multi-tasker, as well as the calendula and marshmallow balm which is great for healing sore nipples after breastfeeding.
You could also treat a new Mum to LoveLula’s Beauty Box subscription box, starting at £13.95 per month. I’ve been subscribed for about a year now and every time the box arrives, I get excited as if it was Christmas! Containing five products worth between £40-60, the Beauty Box is excellent value for money and is a great way to try out different natural skincare skincare and beauty products at a fraction of the price. I can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t want to be treated to such a great gift!
For a truly indulgent bathing experience, I’ve chosen JOIK’s bath truffles infused with lavender which is such a wonderful essential oil easing symptoms of stress, soothing the mind and also aiding sleep. Rosehip oil from Ooh! Oils of Heaven is a gorgeous oil to apply at bedtime to combat wrinkles and fine lines, as well as stretch marks.
Finally, for a bit of glamour, my top picks are Inika’s foundation and lipstick. Applying foundation takes less than a minute but it will help to even out your skin tone and hide unwelcome tiredness caused by every Mum’s enemy, sleep deprivation! (You can read a full review in my post Inika Organic Liquid Foundation) Add a dab of lipstick and you’re good to go, feeling a million times better!
