One of the things I've been neglecting since I became a mom, is my skin. Sometimes I forget to remove my makeup before bed (huge no-no) and most days I'm lucky if I even wash my face at all! After taking a closer look at my skin and noticing some new wrinkles, I realized that it was time to establish a skin care routine and make it a priority!
I have very oily skin that is pretty sensitive and prone to breakouts. Prior to getting pregnant, I was actually prescribed a low-dose Retin-A to treat my adult-acne. Super hot, right?! ;) Surprisingly, my skin cleared up during pregnancy, and I haven't had to use it since London's birth! I am, however, pretty nervous to try anything new, including cleansers, creams, etc., for fear that I'll suffer the dreaded breakouts of the past. With that said, I was looking for something that would help brighten my skin overall and tighten the delicate area around my eyes. When my friend Erica told me she became a consultant for Beautycounter, a SAFE and all-natural skin care line, I was definitely interested in learning more!
She sent me a sample kit that I have been using for about two weeks and I am already a believer! The cream cleanser and nourishing cream is very light + leaves my skin feeling refreshed and smooth. There is also a cooling effect from the cleanser, and I can feel it almost instantly when I'm washing my face. I love it! I have been using the face cream in the morning and at night before bed, as well as eye cream. I have been told by both my husband and my mother that my skin has a "glow!" (They didn't even know I started using new products) Want to know the best part? I haven't suffered a
single breakout! Additionally, I'm a new mom + I care greatly about what I use on my daughter's skin. Erica also sent us the Baby Gentle All-over Wash, which we love! It is tear-free, SAFE + organic. I can trust the ingredients that I'm using on my baby's skin and that gives me total peace of mind. Anyway, enough rambling ... I'm just super excited that I found products that WORK and make me excited to take care of my skin! For more info or to purchase this amazing product, do so here.
