Becoming a mama is everything, but it also changes everything: your body, your lifestyle... and your medicine cabinet. Who else out there was shocked at how many of their fave self-care products had to be put away at a time when you feel like you need them the most. For mamas, self-care isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity. That’s why we created our newest (and prettiest #shelfiegoals) collection of products designed with mama in mind made with nutrient-rich, nurturing ingredients.
Meet the Honest Mama Squad
Each product in this collection is designed for you, mamas: to help you love your glow, even if you’ve got a few varicose veins; rock your new curves, even when you’re feeling a little bloaty; and treat yourself, even if you can’t go out to sushi right now. Most importantly, we want to help you have a happy, healthy journey before, during and after you bring your babes into the word.

Pregnancy Care Tips
Mix up a moisturizing skin mocktail for your growing belly.
Combine Sweet Curves Body Lotion and Glow On Body Oil and rub all over that bump. Then, take Rock the Bump Body Butter and give some extra TLC to the spots where you need it the most.
Hop in a warm bath with our soaking salts and try our Me Moment Meditation. Close your eyes and feel the warmth of the water on your skin. Breathe in slowly for five seconds, then slowly breath out. Repeat. Let go of the worries of the day and feel your body gently relax. You’re amazing, mama.
Give love to those tatas. Pregos: Apply Rock the Bump Body Butter all over those boobies to help moisturize your skin as they grow. Feeding mamas: Soften a pea-size amount of Calm Your Nips Balm between your fingers and apply to the whole nipple area. It's safe for your little one, so no need to wipe off before breastfeeding.
