I remember when I was pregnant with my little one, how frustrating it was to find products that I knew for certain were safe to use during pregnancy. I'm not sure if everyone has this struggle or not, but I was one incredibly cautious (maybe even overly so) MaMa. Especially since it took us five years to conceive so I was going to make darn sure that I didn't do anything to jeopardize our pregnancy!
Fortunately, things have changed over the last five years and there are several pregnancy safe marketed lines available today. By far, however, the absolute BEST on the market are offered from Mama Mio. I recently started using a few of their amazing products and thought I would share my results with you and a few more that are on my Gotta Try List.
The Mama Mio Omega Shower Cream was the first thing I really wanted to try. I tend to be picky when it comes to my shower cream. I deal with those lovely bumps on my upper arms and legs and have used the same shower gel for years now. Honestly, the only reason I even tried this is because hubby and I are making one last attempt for baby #2, so being ever so hopeful, I figured I should venture and try a pregnancy safe shower gel. I was pleasantly suprised. The Omega Shower Cream is not only incredibly moisturizing, but also has an incredible scent. I have been using it for weeks now and love it!
The next thing I selected was the Mama Mio Omega Super-Rich Body Cream. I have tried a ton of lotions and I seriously mean a ton! The more I can manage to exfoliate and moisturize, the less I have to deal with my body bumps. Needless to say that since I have dealt with this skin issue since I was a child, I have seriously tried practically every lotion on the market. Again, I was impressed! The lotion absorbs quickly, goes on smooth, smells heavenly, and has a lovely scent. If you have a loved one who is pregnant, I would most definitely recommend both of these products!
Now for my Gotta Try List!
First is the Mama Mio Bootcamp for Tummies. After having my little girl, things just aren't the same in that department. I have heard phenomenal raves about this system. The kit includes two products, the Skin Tight Toning Serum and the Get Waisted Body Shaper. The products combined with an exercise program will flatten, tighten, smooth, AND define your tummy....all things that need to be happening to my tummy right now!

iS Clinical does it yet again! They were recently featured in Marie Claire with three of our absolute favorite products.
In the edition, Marie Claire interviews aesthetician and spa owner, Mamie McDonald. Mamie has been working on a slew of celebrities skin for almost twenty years. A listers such as Beyonce, Jay-Z, and Eva Mendes (just to name a few) have entrusted Mamie with their skincare regime and often frequent her NYC spa. During the interview, Mamie raves about iS Clinical and states why she suggests these products to many of her clients: "I don't like anything heavy on my face, especially at night because I want my face to breathe. I interchange three iS Clinical serums, depending on how my skin is feeling. Pro Heal Serum Advance+ to heal inflammation; Hydra Cool Serum with hyaluronic acid for dehydration; and Active Serum with glycolic, kojic, and salicylic acids, to exfoliate and boost radiance."
iS Clinical Active Serum is literally a 3-in-1 since you can use it for acne, anti-aging, and hyperpigmentation. I have been a Active Serum guru for over five years now and I can't say enough great things about it. I use it weekly to keep my pores small, my skin tight, and for the occasional blemish.
iS Clinical Hydra Cool Serum is a fantastic option for oily prone skin, that still needs moisture, but not the clogged pores that so often come along with your traditional moisturizers. I love the serum because it is light weight, absorbs quickly, DOES NOT break me out, and rehydrates my skin perfectly.
iS Clinical Pro Heal Serum Advance+ is an amazing healing product. I can apply the product in the evening before bedtime and by morning the area is either drastically reduced or sometimes even completely done! It cuts down the healing time by at least half and often times even less!
Do not let the name intimidate you. With a few tools and a little practice, you can master this braid.
