Project-B Pregnancy Subscription Box (20-24 Weeks)

If you're a regular reader, you'll know that I've been trying out the Project-B Pregnancy Subscription boxes and this month, I received Box 3 which is tailored to weeks 20-24 of pregnancy (you can read 12-15 weeks and 16-19 weeks too).

The theme of this months box is ENERGISE and at this stage of pregnancy combined with running around after a toddler, I really needed to be energised!

My box arrived in its usual Project-B branded box with the items wrapped in pink tissue paper and sealed with a branded sticker.

Inside my box, I received:

1. 3 Teapigs teabags in Super Fruit, Lemon & Ginger and Peppermint Leaves - I do love a good cup of tea and I'd never tried Teapigs before so I was curious to give them a go. They are caffeine free so perfect for pregnancy. I love peppermint and although this was quite strong, it was my favourite. The Super Fruit one was lovely too but I'm not a fan of ginger so Lemon & Ginger just wasn't for me!

2. Apothederm Stretch Mark Cream (2 x 20g) - I'd never heard of Apothederm before and I'm really enjoying trying out all of the different brands of stretch mark creams that Project-B are introducing to me. Apothederm is a lotion which is formulated with SmartPeptide technology which reinforces the skin's support structures by helping to build collagen. It visably repairs and reduces the appearance of both red and silver stretchmarks and smooths skin texture. There is no scent to it either which I love!

3. Divine Fairtrade Chocolate with Sea Salt & Caramel - This was definitely my favourite item in the box and it didn't last very long at all! I love the combination of sea salt and caramel mixed with the milk chocolate and it's even better to know that it's fairtrade too!

4. Urban Veda Daily Purifying Facial Wash & Purifying Exfoliating Facial Polish (2 x 20ml) - I love the smell of tea tree so I could literally sit all day sniffing these. My skin has been awful throughout pregnancy with my forehead being really dry and flaky with the rest of my face being oily. The special ingredient i these Urban Veda products is Neem which is an anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and detoxifying to spots/acne. It also provides anti-aging properties. It has been making me feel a little refreshed after each usage.

5. Femfresh Daily Intimate Wash - I always worry about what products I can and can't use during pregnancy and I've been shocked that some of the products that I normally use in the shower aren't recommended for use during pregnancy. Femfresh is totally safe during all stages of pregnancy and leaves you feeling fresh and clean!

6. What to Buy for your Baby book - This book is amazing! Even as a second time mum, I get really overwhelmed at all the baby products that there are on the market and find it hard to decide what will be a waste of money or an amazing expense. This book contains the lowdown on all things baby and is fantastic! 

I also received the usual four flash cards and this months topics were:

 What to Buy for your Baby - Part 1, Staying Active - enjoy a burst of energy, eating well - a healthy chickpea veggie burgers, and how your baby is developing throughout month 6.

The book alone is worth £12.99 so with this box being £14 it is definitely worth the money. I'm so excited to see what is in next months box!
