Bumble Pick: Basq Skincare Rocks.

Monday, June 30th, 2008

Ever year, we poll our Mommy Focus Groups consisting of over 100 moms on products they can’t live with out and products they see as strong up and comers. They voted Basq products as one of their Favorite Skincare products.

When a woman becomes pregnant… She is full of concerns and one of her concerns is stretchmarks and what she can do to help alleviate the situation.

The company Basq based in NYC set out to create effective and beautiful skin care that addresses unique skin care needs during pregnancy. It is their belief that pregnant and new monthers deserve the best in quality and beauty with compromising saftety.

Two products that are Mommy Focus Group moms raved over is Basq’s Resillient Body Oil and Citrus Sugar Body Polish.

Our reviewer Catilin Sammuels of San Diego, CA, Bumble Mom #14 had to say….
I received my package of Basq Citrus Sugar Body Polish and Resillient Body Oil today. It arrived just in time because my five-month pregnant belly has begun to itch like crazy and I desperately needed some relief. I have already tried many other creams, gels and oils and so far I have found no relief in any of them. So when I tried the Citrus Scrub and Resillient Body Oil, I thought I would be let down. Boy was I wrong! These products are the real deal. I first tried the scrub and it has such a nice scent and texture. It wasn’t too rough and grainy at all like a lot of other scrubs. . It was very smooth and seemed to have some sort of softening agent to it. Plus I liked it because it didn’t leave my bath tub oily or messy. Then I applied the body oil and it was so soothing and calming on my skin. I felt the itchiness stop immediately and it kept the itchies away too. I really liked the weight of the body oil too. I felt it really delivered moisture all day to my skin. I started using it at night too because the scent is very relaxing and because I have had such a hard time sleeping I thought this would help. Thank you Basq for creating such wonderful products. I have some gifts to buy for some friends that are pregnant as well and these great products are definitely on my list. I highly recommend Basq products for any mom or mom to be!

Bumble Pick: Preggie Moms Must Have

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

Pregnant moms everywhere can agree that with a expanding mid-section and a shrinking closet…. the best way to make use of your pre-pregnancy clothes is a belly band. One of our favorites is available at Nine Moons called Swelly Belly Maternity Band.

Swelly Belly Maternity Bands are super easy to use just put them over your head and slide them down over your belly and you’re good to go. They come in a wide range of prints and colors such as the Brown & Green Garden print pictured below. One of our faves!

The SwellyBelly Maternity Belly Band can also be worn after you give birth if you would like to cover yourself while breast feeding. Just wear it as you did during your pregnancy, lift your shirt and breastfeed. You will feel comfortable exposing your belly while breastfeeding.

The folks over at Nine Moons would like to offer the Bumble readers a special discount of 10% off the Swelly Belly Maternity Bands.
