I’m surprised at how untapped the pregnancy beauty market is. Aside from the usual well established pregnancy brands of course. I’ve succumbed to going back to using normal, non-pregnancy related products for the three B’s of my pregnancy body; bump, boobs and bum. So I couldn’t wait to try out the Unity products. Pregnancy specific, each has been designed with stretch marks, itchy skin and hydration in mind. Launched in June this year, they’re brand new.
I tried the Daily Body Hydrator (£35), the Complete Duo Stretch Mark Cream & Oil (£45) and the Intensive Body Nourisher (£35). They’re on the expensive side but reflective of the wonderful quality of each ingredient. The collection’s signature ingredient is the Indian Gooseberry, a ‘Pregnancy Superfruit’ and one the most beneficial natural ingredients for pregnancy & beauty!
Complete Duo Stretch Mark Cream & Oil
What I love about the Complete Duo Stretch Mark Cream & Oil is that the bottle is designed to pump out the right proportion of cream and oil. Both of which are separated inside the bottle. It’s easily absorbed and leaves belly silky smooth for a good few hours. As my bump gets larger my skin is even more thirsty as it’s stretched. So I love that I only have to use this twice a day. I even took it into the bath with me and left a thick layer on which felt like a sumptuous mask.
Daily Body Hydrator
A tall bottle full of sweet goodness. This Daily Body Hydrator smells absolutely incredible. It leaves even the backs of my arms (the driest part of my body) full of luscious vitamins and nourishment. It contains avocado oil, sweet almond oil and Indian gooseberry extract. I apply this generously all over my body when I’m not using the intensive moisturiser usually after a morning shower or following an evening bath.
Intensive Body Nourisher
For times when my skin is super dry (pregnant ladies you’ll know all about these moments), I love the Intensive Body Nourisher. As soon as I apply this whipped soufflé cream, instantly my skin becomes softer and less dry. It contains mango seed butter, Shea butter, sweet almond oil & Indian gooseberry extract. So again, smells really lovely. It feels like such a treat to use!
So what makes it so different?
All products are free from mineral oils, parabens, petrolatum, sulphates, phthalates, DEA and gluten. From start to finish, doctors, scientists, beauty experts and new mums have all had a hand in creating this unique range. It’s already setting a precedent in premium pregnancy products. For me, the products have made a real difference and for any mum to be looking for a real treat for themselves or their hospital bag, this is it.
