23-01-12 Love Beauty Weekly Showcase

We are nearly at the end of the first month of 2012 and it seems that most of us are lathering up and taking on new skincare and beauty regimes on board. The winter months can be very harsh on our skin and especially on our face as Margot and Barbara points out in her post. This week I talk about how a little moisturiser and face powder helped freshen me up and gave me a much needed boost after my son was born. The common theme this week is certainly face and lip care along with a very hairy situation that all us women battle…shaving. Have a read, give some comment love and remember to moisturise!

Very Busy Mamá – Childbirth, red toe nails and face powder

Childbirth, red toe nails and face powder

Three years ago on this very day in our small flat in London I woke up at 6.00 am with cramps. I was 38 weeks pregnant and suffering with pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure). I turned to the Mr. and said, “today is the day”. I had been given a sweep the day before so I knew for sure Little M was on his way.

FM – Organic Surge – ‘Your Skin’s Best Friend’

Now I have!

WAHM-BAM! – Finally a shaving system that actually works for me

Finally a shaving system that actually works for me

I do have extremely hairy legs, as it turns out. I don’t know whether that was down to this early foray into shaving or whether it was just genetic – I think the latter is most probable. And I have a hideous time getting rid of the hair. Waxing and epilating and the like don’t work very well, because it grows back at different rates and I usually have some stubble within a few hours, let alone a day.

An Essex Wife – Alamay Chocolate Shea Butter Lip Balm

January; the month of the diet! It’s cold, wet and windy and all you want it is to snuggle on the sofa with a film and a family size bar of galaxy instead you are there with a handful of raisins and a rice cake. Rubbish isn’t it?

Margot and Barbara – Sprinkles: Why it’s time for serious skincare.

Sprinkles: Why it's time for serious skincare.

Alongside this revelation is my lovely son’s obsession with my ‘sprinkles’. I must have spent most of my life being in a state of shock because I always seem to raise my eyebrows. Always. Which means that although I’m not massively wrinkly on the rest of my face, I do have lines across my forehead, deep furrows like perfectly ploughed field.
