Review: Lillipops

Many of you will know that i have struggled with awful sickness during this pregnancy, it started at week 15 and is still here. I've tried allsorts to ease it and to work out if certain things trigger it to no avail.

I was recommended to try Lillipops by several people who had found them really helpful. So i ordered myself a box and thought i would do a little review for you.

What are they?
Well Lillipops are naturally flavoured ice pops, specially formulated for pregnant women to help ease nausea, heartburn and that dry mouth feeling you sometimes get in pregnancy, they work by rehydrating you. 
The ice pops contain no artificial colours, flavours or sugars and come in 5 flavours; Lemon and Mint, Grapefruit and Tangerine, Lime and Vanilla, Camomile and Orange and Ginger. These flavours were chosen as they are beneficial to pregnant women. My favourite is definately the Grapefruit and Tangerine.

How much are they?
At the moment you can buy a multipack of 20 Lillipops for £6.99 with free postage to the UK mainland from the Lillipops website, the usual price is £9.99. The pack contains 4 pops of each flavour.

Did they work?
These pops have done a great job in keeping me hydrated which i had been finding difficult, my sickness is still here but to be honest i think its here to stay no matter what i do so i wasn't expecting it to miraculously dissapear!
These have been BRILLIANT  for my heartburn, they really help to sooth it and its far nicer to have an ice pop then it is to take Rennies or Gaviscon, i would happily buy more for this reason alone.
I also think they would be fab if you are pregnanct during a hot summer as they taste nice and a good way of keeping your fluids up while helping to keep you cool at the same time. 

**I ordered and paid for these products myself and this review is all my own opinions**
