  • What We Couldn’t Get Through This Week Without 190916

    Hi Everyone,

    So this is a bit of a new thing for me to try on the blog. Each week I am going to give you one product for Josh, one for me (and all you other Mummies) that we wouldn’t have been able to get through the week without. To be fair Josh’s product will be a serious must have, whereas mine will more often than not be a little treat. What can I say, us Mums deserve it!

    For Josh this week it has to be Ashton and Parsons Teething Powder.

    I honestly don’t know what I would do without this product! It seems to sooth him so much and I love that it’s a natural product too. Anyone who has had a teething baby will fully understand that us Mums will do anything to take away the pain (and stop the crying) from our babies! It’s such a miserable time. Josh has three teeth at the top of his mouth trying to make a breakthrough so these powders have been a God Send!

    For me, my must have of the week has to be Clarins Flash Balm.

    Now this is a real treat product cause to be honest, it isn’t cheap! But it’s such a great product. I use it before my foundation and it gives my skin such a lovely dewy look and it’s really lightweight. It’s the perfect preparation for applying make up and instantly moisturises, brightens and tightens facial contours so tired skin looks rested and relaxed. Organic benefits such as Olive and Witch Hazel extracts help smooth the skin’s surface, diffusing the look of lines and working intensely on the coverage of your wrinkles. I am not one for splashing out on super expensive products, especially now I am a stay at home Mum, but I always think if the product is really good then it’s worth it and I do think that of this product. A little goes a long way too so it’s not going to run out super quick which is very annoying when you’ve spent a lot on a product!

    So that’s our must haves of the week. Let me know what you think of the idea of this series, and if there are any particular products you’d like to see featured that I may well be relying on!

    Thanks for reading
