I am a massive fan of spraying products, I found that it's convenience and refreshing at the same time. I found that being pregnant means feeling tired a lot easier, and sometimes my body muscles tend to stiff up easier, too and the effect could be lasting. Recently I have tried two more products by Cussons Mum & Me (from the Bump collection) and wanted to share with you.
**Cussons Mum & Me Cool & Relieve Soothing Spray (£4.70)- I was really excited to give this a try when I saw the words 'cool & relieve soothing spray'. When pregnant, I feel that my body temperature is higher than my non-pregnant self, so anything that says cooling is very welcomed. However I was slightly disappointed that this spray isn't for the face, but never mind I am all prepared and have other beloved face mists. This product is, designed to use all over the body when feeling hot, and is especially good on the back, tired legs and feet. The bottle is a little bit too big (150ml) for my liking to bring with me in my handbag so my thought was that I would keep this at home.
One night whilst I was sleeping, I felt cramps in my leg, it wasn't a bad one but I had to rub it out. Suddenly an eureka moment sparkled whilst I was half asleep, I sprayed this directly to the area where the cramp was, it instantly relaxed the muscle and I was able to go back to sleep really quickly. The next morning I thought to myself, 'wow this stuff is impressive!'. When you are pregnant, you are basically living a 'drug-free' life, so anything sprays which are targeted for muscle relieve is no good and you've just got to deal with it. Whereas this soothing spray, it's designed for pregnancy use; so it's a perfect choice if you are looking for something similar.
The spray dispenser is quite powerful, which I like as it instantly gives a 'pick-me-up' to the areas you spray this to. It contains peppermint oil so your skin feels really refreshed afterwards, and it isn't oily at all on the skin, but absorbed rather quickly. It only has the mildest scent of peppermint which is great, too. I totally recommend this product to mom-to-be who needs a bit of a relaxing pampering throughout the day. It works especially well if use this at the end of a tiring day, spraying this over the legs, neck and back have worked amazingly well for me.
**Cussons Mum & Me Relax & Unwind Sleep Mist (£5.25)- I am never a person who suffers from insomnia, even during pregnancy, sleeping is like a dream. When this sleep mist arrived at my doorstep, I wasn't too excited by it purely because of the reason above but I was willing to give it a try. I spray this around my bed area before I snuggle up comfortably in bed. It smells of a soothing lavender scent which is nice, and relaxing. The scent doesn't linger around for too long though, so if you found it difficult to fall asleep, you might want to top it up later on (if you are still awake). As I fall asleep naturally quite quickly, I didn't think I needed the sleep mist to help me to fall asleep quicker. It's helped me to relax which is true. However I wouldn't say that without the use of this, sleeping would be a struggle. For me, this is a bit of an unnecessary product but if you are someone who relies on products to unwind and fall asleep, I would encourage you to give this a try.
Do you use similar products to chill and relax when pregnant? Are these something you've tried?
