Bloom and Blossom

Sometimes being pregnant has its perks! I've received a lovely gift box of Bloom and Blossom products from the company's lovely founders; Christina Moss and Julia Yule. These ladies are shaking up the skincare market with their wonderful natural products for expectant mums and babies. Their philosophy is honest and simple; minimum ingredients for maximum results. From personal experience, I found it quite daunting being newly pregnant and trying to get my head around all the things you can and can't do, eat, drink, and put on your body. Quite a nervous time in the beginning, especially before the news is public and you can start asking friends. I discovered that skin care products I normally use from another more natural I was told I couldn't during pregnancy (though this isn't stated anywhere on the packaging, kind of concerning!) and it starts to all get a bit overwhelming. Needless to say, I've found these products very reassuring knowing they're made specifically for me and my little Ricochet. I'm addicted to their Anti Stretch Mark Cream (which is lathered on every day! Of course, who wants stretch marks?!) and their Revitalizing Leg and Foot Spray (which really helped with my Restless Leg Syndrome - Yes! It's a real pregnancy issue, so I have learned, also it was fab in the warmer summer months to cool off) in particular.
Currently not available directly in Holland, but you can order yourself (or send a gift to a lucky pregnant friend) of Bloom and Blossom products via their online store. If you want to know more about what goes into these products, there's a great section on their website dedicated to the ingredients used; a very interesting read. They also on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest, all brimming with topical info, tips, tricks, and inspiration. Thanks again for the treats, Christina and Julia!
