The Hospital Bag, Beauty Edition





The Hospital Bag, Beauty Edition

with Mecca Cosmetica

Now that I am almost five weeks postpartum, (where on earth did that time go!) I thought it would be a great time to look back on my hospital bag and take you through the beauty items I took along, and why I would definitely recommend packing these for any future mumma’s.

Mario Badescu Facial Mist,

This bad boy came in quite handy during my labour with Flynn. During and also in the couple of days following, I actually had a temperature and was running pretty hot. Having a facial mist on hand was a lovely way to quickly cool myself down and also relax a little with the beautiful rose scent. Would definitely recommend having a facial mist on hand. 

RMS Beauty Makeup Remover Wipes, 

These are pretty self explanatory, and definitely an essential. Not that I was wearing makeup at all through my labour, but having some good quality facial wipes was a easy way to quickly refresh. Especially since I was recovering from a Spinal Tap and wasn’t able to be up and moving around soon after the labor, having these helped as I could use them from the comfort of my hospital bed. 

Frank Body Lip Balm, 

This was a no-brainer. Even though I tried to stay hydrated during my labour with Flynn, it’s kind of easy to get distracted when your battling through contractions! My lips got super dry and I was glad to have this on hand. The Frank Body lip balm is one of my personal favourites. It’s a thick consistency and feels super hydrating. It’s also not sticky so gets the tick from me. 

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray,

Now this was my favourite item I took with me in my hospital bag. I use my Deep Sleep Pillow Spray every night at home, (it’s definitely apart of my evening routine) so I knew that having it with me in the hospital would help me to feel more relaxed and at home. 

Too Faced Tinted Brow Gel and By Terry CC Cream,

Now first, a disclaimer. I actually didn’t end up using these while in hospital, but they were packed. I was hoping I would feel up to having some newborn shots taken of Flynn and our new little family but due to my recovery it didn’t end up happening. However, I do know that if we had of decided to do a little shoot this CC Cream and Brow Gel combo would have perfect, nothing to heavy but good enough to make me feel slightly human after a couple of nights of zero sleep
