If you’ve recently had the exciting news that someone in your life is expecting a baby, there’s a good chance that you’re already thinking about what to get them as a gift to say congratulations. Obviously, there will be a lot of things that new parents will need once the baby comes along, but pregnancy itself can be a long, hard slog. Lots of new mums just want something they can use which is functional, comforting and makes them feel pampered. With this in mind, we’ve put together a list of five products from the Pure Beauty store, which are things that your pregnant friend or relative will definitely love – and are all suitable for use while carrying a baby!:

Medik8 Bakuchiol Peptides

Once you are expecting, you will start to realise that many of the most potent beauty products are off-limits, because of the effects that they can have on your unborn child, and most retinol-containing products are a big no-no. This bakuchiol peptide serum from Medik8 contains a plant-based anti-aging alternative for vitamin A and retinol derived ingredients, which is perfectly acceptable for use when pregnant or breastfeeding. The product itself is vegan-friendly, cruelty-free, and contains no synthetic colours or phthalates. It will help to stimulate collagen and elastin production, smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while remaining incredibly gentle on your skin.

Elemis Instant Refreshing Gel

Anyone will tell you that even the most straightforward pregnancy can be hard on your body and simple things like walking around can leave you feeling tired and achy. This refreshing gel from Elemis contains a combination of arnica, birch and witch hazel, as well as camphor and menthol, and is perfect for massaging into tired legs as well as your neck, shoulders, temples and forehead. It is specifically formulated to be suitable for use during pregnancy and is the perfect product for taking care of swollen feet and ankles.

Bloom and Blossom You’ve Got This Mama The Pregnancy Gift Set

Bloom and Blossom products are designed specifically with families and mums-to-be in mind, and they offer several products which are formulated for use in pregnancy. This pregnancy gifts set contains three of their most popular products for pregnant women, including Spritzy Toes to relieve tired, legs, and swollen ankles, Wonder Worker, a moisturising repair balm to protect the skin and You Glow Girl, which is a high-performance body oil to tone, hydrate, soothe and nourish the skin and protect against stretch marks

Evolve Organic Beauty Super Berry Body Oil

Body oils are fantastic for use during pregnancy as your skin will be working hard to accommodate your growing baby. This Super Berry Body Oil from Evolve Organic Beauty contains Chilean rosehip oil, upcycled raspberry oil and pomegranate seed oil, all of which are rich in fatty acids and antioxidants, which help to promote cellular regeneration and assist your skin in recovery from stretch marks, as well as deeply moisturising your body.

Decleor Prolagene Gel

Although gentle enough for use during pregnancy, this gel from Declor is potent enough to smooth skin imperfections and diminish stretch marks, thanks to an amino acid called proline L which helps to rebuild the skin supporting fibres. It also includes osmanthus absolute which has a potent healing action, and the gel itself offers a toning, firming action and protective film, which makes it perfect for use during pregnancy.
