How often have you attempted to apply body lotion, only to be interrupted by Peppa Pig puzzle requests instead? Or settled in the tub for a relaxing soak, before jumping out again to settle your newborn? We realise every mama needs a little pampering, but it needs to be fast. Try switching your regular shower gel with a moisturising shower oil (instantly clean, soft skin), or use one loaded with essential oils to reap the benefits of a relaxing soak or uplifting boost in five minutes flat. Here are our favourite buys.
