Hello,I’m Lauren Murdoch-Smith and I am mama-in-chief to three children - Sebastian, Sybil and Albert. Motherhood has been my greatest achievement and my hardest challenge for so many reasons. From birth to the fourth trimester, each child has been different, teaching me so much about myself and how tough the first years of motherhood are but ultimately how rewarding having children can be.
From Sebastian the baby that never slept to our Lady Sybil who amazes us every day with her quirky and hilarious personality and our latest addition, Albert - AKA Bertie, who has kept us on our toes since he arrived in May, they are proof that no baby is the same, arriving in this world with strong personalities - something that still amazes me.
Having three young children brings plenty of stress and sleep deprivation which has a nasty habit of impacting your skin so taking time for some self-care can make all the difference in those early days and beyond. Balance Me’s skincare range offers a simple, effective solution for your skin’s weary skin and for my LMS X Balance Me collaboration, I’ve picked the products most helpful and indulgent at a time when you need looking after the most. You’ll find the Stellar Balm that fixes sore nipples and chapped lips along with the skin balancing Pre and Probiotic Milk Cleanser that helped my pregnancy induced sensitive skin. I’m obsessed with the Radiance Cream which I use to help give my skin a glow when it’s at its most tired and the pregnancy and post-birth must-have - the Super Firming Body Oil that helps look after your body post-bump with an instant hit of hydration. These products aren’t just for mums or mums-to-be though, they’re developed for everyone and all skin types, working to give your skin what it needs, when it needs it. My Balance Me picks also come in a limited-edition pouch that you can pack in your hospital and changing bag.
I’m so excited for you to try them. Enjoy!
