Now that Holly is no longer a tiny newborn baby, I am increasingly finding that I have a little bit more time for myself to get back into my skincare and bodycare regimes again and it is nice to have some new smellies to make me feel like me again. I have been using Organic Surge's Gentle Meadow Body Lotion which is particularly recommended for expectant and new mums because it is great for nourishing stressed, stretched skin.
The Gentle Meadow body lotion smells just like .... err... a gentle meadow??? Well, yes! The lotion is made from natural ingredients and is scented with a blend of lavender and geranium which make it a truely heavenly smelling body lotion that chills me out as soon as I open the lid. Lavender is particularly good for relaxation and de-stressing and calming me down at the end of a busy day with two cheeky monkies.
Unlike some natural and organic body lotions that I have tried in recent months, the Organic Surge Gentle Meadow Body Lotion does seem to hydrate my skin - I notice this most on my lower legs and upper arms. It is quite a nice thick lotion but still easy to squeeze out of the bottle and apply. It is just oily enough to coat the skin but not so greasy that it sits there for hours.
Organic Surge Gentle Meadow body lotion is suitable for even the most sensitive skin during and after pregnancy (and whenever you feel like being pampered... you don't need to be a new mummy to enjoy it!). It is SLS and paraben free and doesn't have any man-made fragrance or colour in it.
I have really been enjoying using this body lotion and I think, given that I have noticed Organic Surge products popping up in my local Waitrose, it may well be a product that I continue using for some time to come.
