This week I am 23 weeks pregnant! This pregnancy has really flown by but I know it’s this last half that will drag on. As my body is trying to adjust to this extra weight, I have felt ALL the aches and pains lately. Hot baths have been my go-to for dealing with the pain, and I have been trying to squeeze in a little extra pampering, too. I was sent this fun pregnancy subscription box by Oh Baby Boxes, and it was just what I needed.
This post is in collaboration with Oh Baby Boxes. All opinions are always 100% my own.
Oh Baby Boxes is a subscription box that has 6-8 full size self-care items and pregnancy essentials. Each box is customized to your stage of pregnancy. This box is for 2nd trimester and I already am really looking forward to my box for next trimester! Each box is valued over $100 but only costs $39.99. Oh Baby Boxes select the finest ingredients including organic, natural, artisan, & holistic goodies to pamper every stage of your journey.
What I got in my 2nd trimester box…
J&J Naturals | Orange & Cedarwood | Growth Hair Serum $26.99 This hair serum smells SO good. The natural and earthy scent of cedarwood has my hair smelling amazing and it’s shielding my hair from damage. I put a few drops in my hands and then work it into the ends of my hair. You can also use this as an overnight scalp treatment! I may be begging my hubby to massage this into my scalp this evening.
Oh Baby Boxes | Bra Extenders | $9.99 I haven’t actually used these yet because I had to buy all new bras pretty early on, but I think they’re really a clever idea! Since your breast size will be constantly changing during pregnancy, these handy little straps can be hooked right to your favorite bra and allows you to adjust your band size. So cool!
Willow Collective | Souper Mom And Baby Spoon Set | $15 This sweet mom and baby engraved spoon set is just a perfect little gift. It’s one of those cute things I wouldn’t spend money on for myself but gladly receive it!
Zona | Foldable Diaper Backpack | $20 This is my personal favorite item in the box. This super functional and adorable pouch turns into a backpack! It is super lightweight that collapses into it’s own internal pocket. I see us using this at the beach and park a lot this Summer. This will easily fit in my diaper bag and whenever I need an extra bag for the kiddos or to carry stuff at the farmer’s market etc… I’ll be able to just unzip this pouch and have a backpack! So cool.
Oh Baby Boxes | Mama Necklace | $20 This dainty mama necklace is made with 304 stainless steel and plated with 14kt gold. I think this one will be really cute layered with other necklaces. Another sweet gift for myself!
Fig + Yarrow | Night Nutrients Booster Serum | $34 This is my second favorite item in the box. I am really a sucker for a good serum and this one is quickly becoming my new favorite. When I had my first baby, my skin really suffered. I had acne for the first time in my life. Redness, hyper-pigmentation… it was like I woke up one day and had a completely different skin texture. I knew that with this pregnancy I was going to really take care of my skin. And after years and years of trial and error, I finally know what my ideal skincare routine is. Being in my 30s, I know that I can’t get away with skimping on this stuff! This night serum helps restore skin and even out your complexion. It’s incredibly lightweight and sinks into the skin quickly. I wake up in the morning looking a bit more refreshed and definitely less puffy.
Evolue | Firming Toner | $38 This firming toner hydrates and helps plump and firm skin. You apply this to a cotton pad and gently wipe your face. It helps tighten and tone while gently removing dead cells. It gives you that clean feeling without feeling stripped of natural oils resulting in dried tight skin. A great addition to my prenatal skincare routine!
Oh Baby Boxes | Mommy’s Time Out Mask | $14.95 This silk eye mask is amazing to use for those afternoon naps (which I get once in a blue moon) or for when I just need a little extra help falling asleep at night.
I think this subscription box would be a perfect gift for a mama-to-be! Or of course to pamper yourself. I really wish I had something like this when I was pregnant with my first over 8 years ago! Pregnancy is not easy, and getting this box in the mail filled with luxury items just for me… I needed it more than I realized.
You can choose a month-to-month plan or prepay for 3 months and save a bit of money. There is an option to send as a gift, too!
