New products I am trying...and small review

Hey hey!!!

I have purchased a few products to pamper myself during my pregnancy.  First of all, I have only been using them for about 4 days now but OH MY GERRRRRD love them all!!!

First on the docket are Origins Checks and Balances Frothy face wash and United State Balancing Tonic

I have said this over and over again.  This girl has had a run with acne.  It was really bad in my first trimester, just awful...but now (knock on wood) my face has improved tremendously.   The acne cleansers I was using approved from my doctor were doing nothing but drying my face out and irritating it I did some research on more natural products and I chatted with an Origins expert that suggested I use something that will balance my skin since my hormones are all over the place.  So glad I did, these products are amazing and smell awesome!  

Second is Clarins Huile Tonic body treatment oil.  I have heard from family and close friends how incredible this product is for the prevention and appearance of stretch marks.  I haven't had an issue as of yet, but I know later in my pregnancy I will definitely need to lube and lather up my body to prevent.  This oil smells like a high end day spa...I use it right after I shower when my body is still damp.  I focus on the areas that are prone to stretch marks such as breasts, belly, thighs, and lets not forget our booties girls!!!!   The oil is not greasy at all and it feels so luxurious!  A little goes a long way so I would not use a ton, plus its a waste to use more than needed anyhow am I right?!!!!  I tend to focus a lot on my breasts since I already have stretch marks from earlier in my 20's due to weight gain/loss.  But use your judgement on what you feel is best.

Well folks, I hope you enjoyed this review and if you have used these products in the past or currently, I would love to hear about your experiences.  Today is a great day,  I am feeling somewhat normal considering I have had a heck of a time in these past couple of months getting over nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headaches, you name it!!!   I woke up feeling the sunshine I have missed for a while.

  3. You poor thing :( I'm glad you're feeling a bit better today! Hope it stays. I have acne too and it's been flaring up more lately... I might need to try origins! Does that oil help with existing stretch marks? Gosh I hate those...

  4. Ooooh I TOTALLY had pregnancy acne during the first half of my pregnancy but it was the worst in my first trimester. Around the half way mark it totally cleared up and it's been great since! The things we go through for our babies!
    I had a facial a couple months after Mia was born and they used Clarins products because I'm nursing and I am in LOVE with them now! Totally a luxurious feel to them all!
