Water retention during pregnancy can wear a woman out! Heavy legs, swollen ankles, and expanding feet also tend to limit a lady's wardrobe and shoe selection. I had this problem each of the three times I was overdue with my kids, and no matter how much I elevated my gams, nothing gave me much of a lift. Mama Mio recently sent me its recipe for relief — Lucky Legs ($20) — to test. Check out how the potion fared.
Who is this product designed for? This product is great for expectant women who are experiencing water retention in the legs or ladies who just want a refreshing lotion to moisturize their limbs.
Is it practical? Summer's in full swing so lots of mamas are showing more skin and want their legs and feet to look and feel their best. Made of essential plant oils, spearmint, menthol, aloe vera, and chamomile, the foam comes in a pump and leaves a tingling feeling and flattering shimmer on the skin after it is applied. Because the potion is frothy, it is absorbed quickly.
What could be better? The product boasts that it increases circulation, but the tingling sensation lasts for a while so moms should rinse their hands after applying it to the legs and be careful not slather it on other parts of the body.
Would I buy it? Yes, it's much lighter than other lotions I've tried.
