There seems to be baby fever in Tinseltown these days with celebrities like Kate Hudson, Jessica Alba, and Natalie Portman expecting special deliveries later this year. Well, before these mommies-to-be (and all other pregnant women out there) hear the pitter-patter of little feet, they should make sure to take the time to indulge themselves. Helen Ambrosen, LUSH product creator and mother of two, recommends these pre-natal products to do just that:
Therapy Massage Bar ($9.95) – ladies, take advantage of your significant other’s hands while you have the chance and make them rub you from head to toe with this certified organic moisturizing bar. And don’t forget to massage Therapy on your bump to help prevent stretch marks. The cocoa and shea butter mix with neroli oil to moisturize dry skin and improve its flexibility and elasticity.
Butterball Bath Bomb ($4.95) – a celeb favorite (knocked up or not), this bath bomb is loaded with creamy cocoa butter to moisturize and calming ylang ylang. So, turn out the lights, put on some soothing tunes, fill the tub with warm water and toss in Butterball for a relaxing bath after a long day.
Herbalism Facial Cleanser ($13 for ¼ lb) – with pregnancy comes hormones…and lots of them. Attack acne (one side effect) by using this cleanser made with kaolin clay, ground almonds, stimulating rosemary, dirty defying nettle powder, and soothing chamomile.
Henna ($22.95) – since hair cannot be chemically colored during the first trimester, grab one of LUSH’s hair hennas. With four colors to choose from, our henna (sourced from Iran) is mixed with other natural ingredients like coffee and fresh lemon juice to naturally add color to hair.
