The Story Behind the Brand

Balmonds was created by a Natalie Balmonds – mother in search of a cream that would help her daughter’s very dry and itchy skin. Natalie had tried many different creams prescribed by doctors and dermatologists, but they stung and irritated her even more. This led to her experimenting with cooking traditional ointments and salves in her kitchen. Natalie used combinations of herbs and oils to create the skincare that would work just right for daughter’s skin, and today we have Balmonds.

If you have been reading my beauty posts for a while, you will know how much I love Bio Oil. It is like the Holy Grail of skincare. I love how multi-tasking it is. It can be used on scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, ageing skin and dehydrated skin. Bio Oil is definitely one of my favourite body oils. I am never without one. It comes as no surprise that this body oil is a bestseller on Amazon.

It  has a lovely light scent and instantly relieves a dry skin. I have used this Body Oil a few times now and I love how it gives my skin nourishment and moisture. It is one of the best body oils in the market.

This is another amazing skincare product. It is one of my favourite body oils. I am a huge fan of Almond Oil. The benefits are numerous, which is why I love using it. This Naissance Sweet Almond Oil ticks all the right boxes for me. This body oil can be used for massage, skincare, hair conditioning, face cleansing and as a natural make-up remover. It is rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, and it is 100% natural. This is a great body oil for Vegans.

Best Skincare Products for during and after pregnancy

*Affiliate links.

Pregnancy does take a massive toll on our physical and mental health. Our skin also suffers thanks to the stretching, hormones and extra weight we carry. It can be too much sometimes, which is why we must take good care of our skin whilst pregnant and after pregnancy. We must remember to care for our skin regardless of how tired and busy we may be after delivery. I know how tiring it can be after delivery. I remember how tired I was after birthing the twins. Skincare was the last thing on my mind. Even taking a shower felt like a chore. I didn’t feel like doing anything but sleep. So I know how easy it is to neglect your skin during and after pregnancy. But caring for your skin is best and your skin will thank you for it for years and years to come.

Here are some of the 3 skincare products you should try during and after pregnancy –

 

Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturiser £11.59

This Moisturiser is great for those struggling with extra dry skin during or after pregnancy. It works so well, locking moisture for up to 48 hours, which is so amazing. Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturiser is gentle on skin but yet very effective. I recommend this moisturiser for any one dealing with extra dry skin, especially during pregnancy.

This moisturiser is all you need to get your skin glowing again. It absorbs quickly into extra dry skin, including very rough spots like heels, elbows, and knees. It penetrates the five layers of skin to heal dryness at the root. 

 

Bio-Oil Specialist Skincare Oil 200ml £13.69

I have been using Bio-Oil Specialist Skincare Oil for many years now and I can testify to how amazing this body oil is. It is such a great skincare product. If you must use 1 skincare product during and after pregnancy, I strongly recommend you use Bio-Oil. This oil helps prevent formation of stretch marks during pregnancy and helps improve the appearance of stretch marks you may have already.  It also helps improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, new and old scars. 

I always make sure I have a bottle of Bio-Oil in my bathroom cabinet. It is so useful, which is why it is UK’s No.1 selling scar & stretch mark product.

 

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Massage Stretch Marks Lotion £7.95

This is another great product I used during and after my pregnancy. It contains Shea Butter, Argan Oil, Elastin and Collagen which helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks.  This body lotion is also free of Mineral Oil, Parabens and Phthalates. The mild fragrance is so amazing. I really like it. It also helps in reducing cellulite marks, which is many of us battle with. If you are after trying a new body lotion to combat stretch marks and cellulite marks, then you should give this a try.
