Royal Baby Shower with Mama Mio plus a GIVEAWAY

Mama Mio at Langaro Lifestyle Centre | All Dolled Up

Saturday dawned wet and miserable, but nothing could dampen our spirits as we were off to a Royal Baby Shower! Mama Mio hosted us at the brand new Langaro Lifestyle Centre in Camps Bay for a morning of games and pampering in honour of (our friend) Princess Kate’s impending motherhood. We were treated to manis and pedis from Langaro’s team of expert primpers and taken on a tour of their facilities which include a hair salon, nail studio, fitness centre, beautiful treatment rooms and a luxury boutique. I plan to go back and try out one of their massages very soon so I’ll do a separate, more detailed post on Langaro then – suffice it to say that the place is on another level! One of the most beautiful and relaxing spaces I’ve been in and reasonably priced to boot!

Anyway, back to the baby shower! We played a few games, like matching people’s baby photos to their grown-up selves, testing our knowledge with a Kate-themed trivia game (which Camilla won, what a champ) and coming up with outrageous baby names for the little one. I usually find that sort of thing a bit cringey but it was actually a ball getting to know some other beauty and lifestyle bloggers while stuffing our faces with scones and cucumber sandwiches.

I particularly enjoyed learning more about the Mama Mio range. There were a few pregnant ladies and new moms in the group who RAVED about products like the Tummy Rub Stretch Mark Butter and Get Waisted Body Shaper. We were introduced to a few unfamiliar products, like the Skin Tight Toning Serum and See-No-Scar Solution, and some items already on our bathroom shelves like the Clean Slate Cleanser and OMega Body Oil (both of which featured in our May Favourites).

Apart from trying out the products and learning why they work (and trust me, they do!), I especially appreciate the honesty in the brand’s approach – they don’t promise miracles-in-a-bottle or creams that will guarantee weight loss. They know that keeping your skin healthy is as much to do with your lifestyle as the products you put on it and that’s something that a lot of brands like to conveniently ignore for the sake of a quick sale. Even though Camilla and I have only been using Mama Mio’s skincare for a relatively short space of time, we can confidently recommend them and are wholehearted supporters of their skincare philosophy.

Win a Mama Mio Try Me Trio with All Dolled Up

Ok, enough talk – it’s COMPETITION TIME! We have a Try Me Trio from Mama Mio to give away, which is a great high protein face care starter kit comprising their best-selling Clean Slate cleanser, Mighty Moisture day & night cream and Eye Know moisturising eye serum. I’ve been using all three for a couple of months now and don’t have a bad word to say about them. The products are simple, effective and free of chemical nasties – that’s the skincare golden triangle right there.

    I have been lucky enough to try Get Waisted – I do need a truck load more! He-he.

    I haven’t tried any of their skincare products; they sound amazing. I just love Mama Mio’s packaging and the names of the products!! Fingers crossed xx

    PS Following both on Twitter 🙂

  • Chereen Strydom

    I am OBSESSED with Mama Mio – I’ve tried their body products (the Tummy Butter saved my skin during my pregnancy), but haven’t had the pleasure of trying their facial range so this trio would be great! My favourite product is – and always will be – the Boob Tube. I love the scent, I love the texture and I love that it keeps the ‘girls’ nice and perky 😉

  • Chenda

    Followed 🙂 Most excited to try the Clean Slate cleanser because I’ve heard so many great reviews about it and would really love to try it out!

  • Annika Ziehen

    followed both and most excited to try mighty moisture – my skin is really dehydrated right now (learned the difference from you!) and I love the fact that it is a day and night product!

  • Angie

    I got the Mama Mio Boob Tube tester in a Rubybox and LOVED it. Just need to speak kindly to my credit card before I go out and get a bottle… It smelled amazing and I’d like to try more in the range especially anything to do with eye treatments, as I am perpetually on a holy grail hunt.

  • tasveera

    I would love to try the cleanser and the eye serum. I like to try out new cleansers because I feel after a couple of months using the same product loses its effect on your skin. So always up to experiment with new stuff. As for eye serums I am still in search for a decent eye serum…I have tried n tested so many already and none really seem to help me…I am hoping this one would!

  • tasveera

    P.s following both on Twitter!

  • Justine Henkes

    Omega body oil is the business! Absolutely love it! Next on the list is Mama Mio Get Waisted Body Shaper! Can’t wait to try it.

  • Angela

    I’m yet to try their products but have heard so many rave reviews! Being very much a minimal product user, I’m super keen to try the clean slate cleanser!

  • Emily Wouters

    The Try Me Trio looks amazing – I would love to try it! I haven’t used any of the Mama Mio products before, however I have heard only stellar reviews and I would love to try the Boob Tube and the OMega Body Oil!

  • Tracy Jones

    Hi Jules and Camilla,

    So glad you enjoyed the Mama Mio Royal Baby Shower on Saturday. It was so great having you ladies there and I’m thrilled you both had such a great time.
    Speak soon,

  • Carryn

    Following all 🙂 Would love to try the Goodbye Stretchmarks product!

  • Chantel Gomes

    I Love the Mama Mio Mighty moisture face cream, it tightens my skin with its amazing firming qualities & also moisturises my skin leaving my skin super smooth!
    Perfect for winter skin as well as my skin gets so dry this time of year. 🙂

  • Jody Thaver

    Recently received the ‘OMG Feel Good Mini Kit’ as a gift and am absolutely in love with the range. Will definitely be trying out more of these products…and the PERFECT start would be the Clean Slate products!!!! :)))

  • candice

    haven’t tried any of their products but really excited to try Get Waisted 🙂

  • Luzanne Ashby

    I would LOVE to try this range, I recently turned 30 and have seen quite a few changes in my skin and body. Getting older sucks, right? I recently started a beauty blog and love trying out new, natural products so this range is right up my alley.

    I’m thinking the ‘Eye Know’ product for my developing crows feet wrinkles or the ‘Goodbye Stretch Marks’ cream.

    Thank you so much for the sweet giveaway, Mama Mio & All Dolled Up!

  • hildegarde_k

    I’d love to try the Clean Slate Cleanser and the Boob Tube bust and neck firmer. Received a sample of the Boob Tube and I *loved* it. The products all sound lovely, so I’d pretty much love to try out anything. 🙂

  • Saffiya

    Followed both on twitter:)

    would love to try the clean slate, as iv heard nothing but good things about this product and all the Mama Mio products from the girls @alldolledup.
    Also would love to win these products as it sounds like the perfect skin care roitine;)

  • Nikki

    I am *OBVIOUSLY* using the maternity products. Also only been using them for a short period of time but I’m SO impressed with them and I’ll never look back. I’d LOVE to try the face range. Fingers crossed for meeeeeee. ALSO – I don’t have ‘Boob Tube’ but holy cow, I will make SURE that I do. And SOON. Xx

  • Jo

    Followed. I’m most excited to try the Mighty Moisture day and night moisturiser. My skin is sooooo dry in this weather, and I’m struggling to find something that does the job! xx

  • Wendy

    I would love to try the All-In-One Eye Serum from the High Protein Face range.
    The idea of 8 Hours Sleep In 60 Seconds is just what the Dr ordered. My eyes with their dark shadows and puffiness, is starting to scare the children (LOL)
    Sounds like an awesome product and one I would really like to try out.

  • Charne Banger

    I really really want to try thr OMega Body Buff Exfoliator!
    It looks amazing and other exfoliators don’t seem to work properly for me!

  • Nicola

    Nice competition. I’m following All Dolled Up and Mama Mio on Twitter.

    I’ve read so much about Boob Tube, but after visiting the site and checking out the full range I can’t decide between that and the OMega Wonder-full Rescue Balm.

  • Tamsin

    I really like the sound of Love Your Life Lines: Double Trouble For Wrinkles

  • Nicole (@PrincessNoo)

    Great giveaway – thank you. I’m following you both on Twitter. I’d love to try the Clean Slate cleanser. I really like aloe cleansers – they are extremely calming and soothing. Been wanting to try something from the range for ages but its quite pricey. This would be a great place to start.

  • Eloise

    Feeling like about 600 months pregnant and decidedly unpampered, I would very much like to try them all but I’ll settle with the BBB kit for now.

    Used the Tummy Rub oil and butter throughout my pregnancy and did not have a single mark. My skin does not look like i was pregnant before. The best products, ever. Would love to try the Eye Know now. I’m sure it’ll work wonders on my tired eyes

  • Denise Helen Gordon

    I would so love to try the EYE KNOW product – I have yet to find an eye serum/cream that doesn’t weight down my delicate eye area.

  • Robyn

    Loving the body buff! 🙂 Would love to try out the Mighty Moisture day& night moisturiser. Winter has left my skin so dry! wah!

  • Rene Groyer (@ReneGroyer)

    I have not ever tried these products but so would love too.Have read rave review about them. Did not even get the boob tube sample in my Rubybox either,so now I am counting on you guys !
    Following both on twitter.

  • Rench7

    I’d love to try the EYE KNOW – looks so pretty, would love to try it out as those crow eyes are showing way too much nowadays 🙂

  • Lynn

    I have not yet tried any of these products but I would so much like to try the moisturiser 🙂

  • Tatjanochka

    Hi! Follow both and I would love to try good bye strechmarks and bootcamp for butts 😉

  • Kathryn (Becoming you)

  • LiezelTee

    Am following both 🙂 Would love to try the Eye Know – these “laugh lines” need some help 😉

  • Nikkita

    Mighty Moisture day & night cream is my favourite!

  • beth_N

    would love to try the EYE KNOW, always looking for a great product to make me look better 🙂

  • Elle H

    What a lovely giveaway, I have been obsessing over the Mama Mio range for ages now. This actually made my mom buy 4 of the Goodbye Stretch Mark creams a few weeks ago, and she’s loving it.

    I, of course, want to try out their whole entire range. I really can’t narrow it down to just one. I really can’t!

    My top 3 would be:
    Boob Tube – They also have the whole bootcamp for boobs package!
    Mighty Moisture – A moisturiser that replaces my day cream, night cream, serum and primer.. Need I say more?
    Eye Know – A product that will make this super tired momma look like she’s had 8 hours sleep, such a thing exists? Must have!

    By the way, I’m @Ellelicious_ on twitter =)
