We spoke to these real parent testers to get their review...

How did this product make your life easier? 

Leah: It makes my life easier as a mum as the are products in this set that make life a lot more comfortable. Such as the nipple balm; makes life easier as a breastfeeding mum because it provides comfort and prevents dry/cracked nipples from feeding. Another reason is, the creams provided make me as a mum to a new baby, feel more confident in my skin after my skin/body has gone through many changes.

Laura: This kit was an absolute godsend! When it arrived, I was starting to get a lot of stretchmarks and they began to get really, really angry and sore. I had been using various moisturisers but nothing would take away the agonising itch, which was causing them to become even more red and sore. Straight away I started using the ‘fantastic skin elastic’ and it worked wonders!! The itching soon stopped and my skin felt so much better. It was slightly annoying as it’s so oily and so my clothes would stick to me, and I would need to wash my hands, but I guess that’s what made the product so great.

Kim: This set has everything needed for me to prepare to become a mum in one set. The packaging is so bright and lovely and instructions are really clear with benefits etc of use. I loved all the products and the quality of them was fantastic, you got so much product that you didn’t have to use it sparingly.

Would you recommend this to other parents? 

Katie: The no harm nipple balm was lovely and soothing on very sore nipples in the tricky early part of our breastfeeding journey. I loved how it absorbed well and did not make my baby’s face greasy like a leading brand nipple cream I had been using previously – her baby acne improved when I moved to this balm. The fantastic skin elastic felt like a luxury product which was lovely to use.

Kim: Everything included in the set is useful for pregnancy and after without having to shop around and find what you need. The information provided with the products was informative and made life easier. Each product felt like great quality and the packaging and branding was really bold and impactful.

Nicola: A product that makes you feel more comfortable is a must. I have recommended the spritz for bitz product to all my pregnant friends. I love the texture of the moisturiser. I found that it really helped with rubbing and chaffing in the hot weather. I had minimal damage after giving birth and I was using the perineal oil for 3 weeks prior to giving birth.

Would you choose this product above all others on the market? 

Katie: I would highly recommend this product and think it should win. Yes, it is expensive but it is a high-end luxury product and in my opinion worth the money! Using these products felt like I was treating myself rather than doing something medical which some competitors did. The subtle scent of the fantastic skin elastic is divine and I will continue to use it post-pregnancy and beyond!

Kim: Yes I would as it contained everything I needed which meant I didn’t have to shop around and research brands. The information supplied with the products and website makes the products stand out more to others as you receive really helpful information for each product and stage of pregnancy. The perennial oil, spray etc all smelt and felt high quality.

Leah: I really enjoyed testing this product, however, I like to try new and different things all the time. I would choose this product more often now that I have tried it myself. I think this product should win because it is very simple, but very effective and it does everything it states it should do. This makes the product stand out from the rest, as some products on the market do not do everything they’re supposed to do. It also stands out from the rest because of the beautiful yet simple packaging. The price is also quite reasonable however there are cheaper products that are similar on the market. But again, this product I tested sticks to its word basically. I really enjoyed testing this product and I definitely would buy it again!

What changes would you make to this product? 

Laura: The price points are slightly higher than I’d like, and I don’t think I would have considered purchasing myself. However, having now tried the products I will 100 per cent be buying for any future pregnancies and I would urge any other mums to be to purchase as it is so worth it.

Katie: If I could change one thing I would change the packaging. The sizing of products was generous but I did not like that I couldn’t see how much was left. This was particularly relevant with the nipple balm which I felt I had come to rely on! There was nothing else I would change about this product – I loved it!

Leah: The only thing I would change about this product is its retail price. The product can be seen as quite expensive. I believe it is good value for money as the product really works and does its job, however it is still quite a pricey product for what it is. Other than that, I would not change anything else about this product.
