Fed up of looking like crap when I am supposed to be radiant and blooming and all people seem to say to me these days is how tired I look and are my iron levels Ok as I look so tired. And I actually feel alright having stopped being sick about 2 weeks ago (I am 23 weeks pregnant. So decided to make a stand and treat myself to some maternity clothes and some nice beauty products (my old ones are doing nothing for me at the mo!) Anyone got any suggestions or using anything nice at the moment?

am no help on this topic i'm afraid. 17 weeks and feeling like shit. covered in spots and dry skin at the same time with huge bags under my eyes. no glowing going on here!

o, just remembered, yves st laurant have a lovely creamy toner. makes your skin feel like velvet. my mom has it and i tend to steal it whenever i visit! not specifically for pregnancy but its not too hideously expensive and its well worth it to cheer yourself up. Wink

My friend bought me all the Boots Mediterranean Maternity creams, bath stuff etc Don't smell too stong (which is good for the sickies amongst us) but nice and fresh.
