I delivered my little bundle a week and a half ago, and not only was I unprepared for the stress of delivery but didn’t realize I’d be going on just a few hours of sleep for days on end! On top of that I have my hormones regulating, causing its own issues, and my body trying to recover. That pregnancy glow is very much missed right now, which is why I was overjoyed when my mom gave me a gift of pampering with Moody Sisters Skincare.
Moody Sisters is a really wonderful company started by two sisters looking to solve their skincare woes. Their products are handmade, natural wonders that make a big impact on your skin (but thankfully not your wallet!). Every item in the Moody Sisters line contains fresh, naturally derived or organic ingredients and is made by the sisters themselves to help rejuvenate your skin – exactly what I needed!
When I got out of the hospital I was pretty drained for obvious reasons so the first item I used from my awesome gift set was the Dead Sea Mud Mask to give my life a little lift. This is a clay mask that feels amazing on your skin and afterwards will give it back that glow! My skin felt soft and vibrant, which didn’t go away after one day but lasted for a week. My skin is still feeling great because of this mask, which cleanses, tones, smoothes and hydrates in just 5 minutes – perfect for a new mom!
Another luxury was jumping into my shower when I got home, and I used the Lemongrass Spearmint Body Scrub to exfoliate and hydrate my tired skin. I’ve used a bunch of body scrubs in the past and always found them to be pretty messy and slippery. This one didn’t give me that mess but still gave me great results. The smell is uplifting and just a small amount will get your entire body clean. It’s one of those products that makes you feel like you’re indulging in this great spa experience but don’t have to leave your house to do it. Loved it and gives me a smile every time I use it!
Even though the body scrub moisturizes your skin, I still love to lather on some lotion after my shower just to make sure it’s hydrated and smelling great. I used the Lemongrass Spearmint Body Serum to compliment the scrub and it really left my entire body feeling silky smooth. The moisturizer sunk in right away and didn’t leave me feeling greasy, which is not a good feeling after just getting clean in the shower! I also liked that it kept my legs feeling moisturized 12 hours later when they usually need to have lotion put on again. I used to use coconut oil to achieve this but thankfully this lotion is so much easier to use and smells amazing! A great pick-me-up after putting my body through one rough ordeal.
Lastly, a product that has really saved me after delivering (and my lady bits) is the Feminine Cleansing Spray. Not something you really think about when having a baby but those intimate areas really need some TLC afterwards! This gently cleanses and soothes, but an aspect I really love about it is it can also be used as an uplifting spray anywhere on your body, on baby bottoms, dirty hands or even as a deodorant. It’s pH balanced, which is important for sensitive areas, and is essential for any new mom looking to make it through those first few weeks postpartum!
All in all, I’m officially a fan of Moody Sisters and plan on switching out some of my other beauty essentials to the Moody Sisters version when they run out. I love products that I can rely on to give me great results without any worry. They’re cruelty free (something that’s very important to me in my skincare), and don’t contain ingredients that are harmful to you or the environment. For products of this level you usually have to pay a pretty penny, which I have definitely done in the past but thankfully these ladies are making great, natural skincare affordable.
