There’s really nothing like a good belly creme after giving birth, is there? Come to think of it, there’s nothing like a good belly creme while you’re pregnant and your skin is being stretched way beyond what you think could possibly be normal. Bug and Pickle (that name is SO cute – I just want to keep saying it out loud) has a wonderful line of products especially for the belly along with other mummy-pampering and baby-pampering goodies!
About Bug and Pickle:
While they have come a long way from their first business venture (selling corn from their wagon as little girls) sisters Kim (Bug) and Nicole (Pickle) did resurrect their childhood nicknames when it came time to label their range of body products created just for mums and babes.
The idea behind Bug & Pickle is that lotions and potions for new mums and their little ones can combine practical uses (what parent hasn’t battled diaper rash?) and wholesome ingredients (beeswax anyone?) with a sense of fun that makes using the products, or giving them as a gift, a real delight.
While the mum and babe products are a relatively new endeavour, Kim and Nicole are no strangers to the world of personal care. In 1997 the sisters opened Bloom Essentials Spa in Vancouver, Canada and they haven’t looked back since. With little business experience, but lots of moxie, Kim and Nicole have created a unique and successful spa environment that constantly wins reader’s choice awards in local newspapers.
After years spent dreaming of a Bug & Pickle launch, the sisters are tickled pink (or should that be pickled tink?) to finally have their lovely products on the market. They’re sure the mums and babes will be overjoyed as well!
I love that the name Bug and Pickle came from childhood nicknames, don’t you?
Thanks to Bug and Pickle, I was able to try Belly Firm (sounds like something I NEED). I like how they describe it:
Your new little one is your bundle of joy, but your postnatal tummy is a bundle of jelly. Bug & Pickle’s Belly Firm harnesses the power of essential oils and vitamins to tighten up stretched skin and reduce the appearance of any stretch marks or c-section scars.
Bug and Pickle also sent me their Head-to-Toe Baby Wash and Diaper Gel to try out. I loved both! The Baby Wash is soothingly scented with lavender and is sulfate-free and PH balanced so it’s gentle on babies eyes. Emma smells SO good after her bath.
The diaper gel is light and non-sticky – I’m sure it feels refreshing for baby. Essential oils of lavender, yarrow and blue chamomile help to reduce redness and irritation. It can also be used on cuts, burns, bug bites, and sunburn. Gotta love multi-use baby products!
After trying the Belly Firm, Diaper Gel, and Head-to-Toe Baby Wash, I’m encouraged to try their other products as well! I’ve heard very good things about their Teething Oil and Tummy Trouble and intend to try them next.
