Viking Heroes Family Challenge 🇬🇧

After being chosen to be on the Gore Tex Big Days family team for the Family Challenge in St Wendel we were all excited to prepare for this as a family.

Here at Mama Chic, we want to tell you about products which we own and love and one of my biggest love affairs is always with my pram.

I have sensitive skin. It reacts to heat, cold, sunlight, snow, spicy food, stress and not enough sleep. So pretty much everyday it has something to moan (turn red) about. I had a cancerous mole removed two years ago and have had regular skincare check-ups since then (that alone deserves another post!). These are the reasons that I like skincare products with fewer ingredients in them, and the main reason I found Weleda.
