Please can I just stress that I am NOT(!) with child?! There was a bit of a mix up and I ended up with a box of mum to be goodies from nSpa. Try opening that in front of your parents! I am however glad that I didn’t receive the Nipple Cream! Oh lorrrrd, what would I have done with that?! Don’t say use it! Anywho, changing the subject… first up from the box of goodies is the nSpa Mum To Be Relaxing Bath and Shower Creme.
Especially formulated for your special time. Rich in moisturisers like shea butter to help stop skin from drying out. Contains sweet almond & rosehip seed oils to moisturise & nourish.

Even though I am not with child, I have been testing out a few bits from the range as well… I’m a beauty blogger… we like to try new things!
As shower & bath cremes go, I’m fairly neutral. All that I ask is that they don’t irritate my body and that they make me clean! The nSpa Mum To Be Relaxing Bath and Shower Creme has been something I have been using a fair bit recently and I thought it was time to perhaps pop in my two cents.
When used as a bubble bath product, it produces a light and thin layer of bubbles. When used as a shower creme with a shower puff (almost wrote pug, wishful thinking at it’s finest!) it produces more foam/bubbles. I struggle to smell a fragrance and if I really strain my nose it is a very faint sweet, powdery smell *sniffs bottle frantically* that doesn’t leave itself on your skin. It feels like a thin milk as opposed to a normal shower gel that feels like gel/jelly. The most important thing is that it doesn’t irritate my body or make my legs itch either.
I feel fairly neutral towards this product – it’s not bad but it’s not life changing either. I think this would be best suited to purchasing alongside the other items from the range to give as a gift to a true mum to be, a beauty box kind of thing(!), but it’s not something I would specifically go out and buy. If you’re looking for something to protect your skin from stretch marks from pregnancy I would probably recommend a good diet (lots of greens and other healthy things), gentle exercise to keep the blood flowing and plenty of intense moisturising instead.
This hasn’t put me off nSpa and it shouldn’t put you off either. They have other items such as perfume and skincare which you can throw in with your weekly shop as they are available exclusively at ASDA! Buy for £3.50 here.
