Mama Moments Review by Mel – February 2019

A huge Thank you to Sarah who owns Mama Moments for sending me this Beautiful Self Care Box to review. This is a Bi Monthly Subscription that contains 5-6 items per month, hand selected from Small Business Owners. I am definitely all for supporting small companies, I find that the Customer Care you receive is above and beyond.

I can tell just how passionate Sarah is about what she does, and having also suffered from Post Natal Depression following the birth of my eldest Son, I really do understand the concept. Depression should not be a taboo subject, and us ladies should take the time to look after ourselves without feeling guilty.

This months edit is beautifully named ‘Love Yourself to the Moon & Back’. This is a saying I often say to my boys. Do they understand that Mummy tires herself out running around after everyone? No, they only understand how loved they feel. I am really looking forward to the overall experience of taking some deserved rest and relaxation.

The Box arrived via Parcelforce, tracked service. So no need to worry if it will arrive safely. As you can see, upon lifting the lid, what greets you instantly made me smile. Some definite care and attention to detail has been taken.

Time to test out the treats…

The Human+Kind Day+Night Cream

I have used this brand before, having received a hand cream in another box. I am dedicated to using as many Cruelty Free brands as I possibly can, and I am always seeking new products. Doing a little amounts to a lot is my motto. I am a self confessed skincare addict, so this is a perfect item to be included in the box. It also has a price tag of almost £25, so you are really getting this for half price when you consider the whole box cost.

I have been using this day and night, and so far so good. It leaves no residue which is a bonus to me, and is unscented which I prefer. The packaging is also very pretty and stands out among my array of many products.

Under The Willow Paper Co Oscar Wilde Print

This print was designed exclusively for this box! Sarah did not know that I am an Oscar Wilde fan, this made my day. I went to Dublin just to visit his house 9 years ago. I am going to find a pretty frame for this. It is already on my dressing table, but it is too pretty not to frame. Under the Willow sell lots of different prints and also larger sizes. Check them out on their Etsy page (linked further up).

Melting Pot Fudge Madagascar Vanilla

Who is going to complain at a yummy sweet treat? Not me! I did consider hiding this from my Partner, but in the end I thought I would be nice and share.

I have a sweet tooth, and this was definitely sweet enough for me. I have seen that they do different flavours in these and would love to try more.

The Natural Beauty Pot Lavender Bath Salts

Another fabulous brand! I have had the Lemongrass version of these, in a 90g jar. This one is a huge 175g as I suspected it was bigger.

I needed a relaxing bath after a day out at a Children’s Party with my 4 year old. So what better an excuse than having these to test. Cue Daddy taking over and me locking myself in the Bathroom! The smell that comes from these is something else. You must be careful not to fall asleep while in the bath! I love Lavender, I use lots of sleep products. I could smell this for hours afterwards. I am really happy to have more. I would also recommend using these in your room, leave the lid off the glass bottle for a few hours and let them fragrance, they really are that strong!

The Busy Botanist Willpower 100% Herbal Tea

I am a caffeine addict, without my Coffee I am not human. I also love beautiful Coffee. I am guilty of drinking it in the evening and then being awake into the early hours. These are an ideal alternative to switch out that evening caffeine to a 100% natural, herbal tea. I love the packaging too, it is really unusual and eye catching.

My Verdict?

This box is all about taking time out to remember that you ARE important. Imagine if your partners/children did not have you around to do all of the amazing Mum things we all do? Without you they would not cope, right? So looking after yourself is important to the entire family.

I have practiced what I preach with the contents of this box. While typing up my thoughts I also had some important reflection time. It is not selfish to put yourself first.

The contents also offer value for money, being worth twice what you pay is you use our 15% discount code! You can still buy this exact box as a one off, or subscribe to the next edit which is released in April. The links are below to their Website and Social Media.

Thank you all for reading,
