There’s nothing like caressing a newborn’s cheek to remind you of how far your punim has fallen.
Recapture that second trimester glow with a dab of all-natural, therapeutic concoctions from HelloMellow, a new skin care line for moms and their buttercups.
Owner Tracy Feldstein skips synthetic fillers and preservatives, instead infusing her healing balms with custom-crafted aromatherapy brews. We love the bright blend of lemongrass, lavender, and litsea in Rejuvenate and the soothing notes of bergamot, orange, and chamomile in Balance.
The dry-skin eraser is a must-have for drool-chapped babes, while the rich, velvety lip and boobie butters bring relief to the skin-stressing work of labor and nursing.
All in the hope of moving things onward and upward.
