For as long as I can remember I’ve been battling with my skin. Is it oily? Is it dry? It sometimes depends on the hour or the day for me. Does anyone even know what combination skin means?

When I got pregnant I toned down my beauty routine in a BIG way, my skin was looking great and I didn’t want to use the same chemical saturated products from before. Someone suggested CeraVe, Cetaphil and Clinique at the time and I haven’t steered away (however I have added in a few new products!)

Here a few of my MUST HAVES for my skincare regime:

Wash- CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser– this cleanser takes away my makeup without leaving my skin feeling high and dry, its gentle and non-comedogenic

Buy the CeraVe cleanser HERE!

Daily Moisturizer- Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion– gives just enough hydration and can also be used as a body moisturizer, fragrance free

Buy the Cetaphil lotion HERE!

Serum- CHANEL Blue Serum– guys I swear I was a hop skip and a jump away from botox and this serum has made my forehead lines almost unnoticeable. It was created from ingredients taken from blue zones around the globe where people historically live longer (read age more slowly!)

Nighttime- Clinique Moisture Surge overnight mask– this is another gentle warrior from Clinique, you wake up with smooth restored skin

Anytime- CHANEL Hydra Beauty Micro Cream– this amazing facial cream has mirco beads of magic inside. When I’m feeling especially horrific I lather this on at night and wakeup looking like Super Mom! You can also use this as a day moisturizer but I tend to get oily as the day progresses so I let it do it’s magic while I sleep

Did your skin change from pregnancy to motherhood? What are some of your miracle products??

  1. Great post, Kristin! I am also a Cerave and Cetaphil fan. I use Cetaphil gentle cleanser, Cerave PM lotion and Cetaphil AM lotion with SPF. I like oils lately and after trying Beautycounter’s have decided I like Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate. I mix it with the Cerave PM to help spread it around. I like using inexpensive basics with more splurge-y oils and serums. My skin’s been dry this summer so maybe I’ll try the Moisture Surge. I like Beautycounter’s sunscreen and stick for me and Lucy. Great EWG rating and goes on so sheer, rubs in easily. Love the blog! xoxo


    • Thanks Emmeline! I’ll definitely have to try the concentrate and sunscreen. It definitely helps to balance a $10 moisturizer with a $100 serum 😊 Let’s get the babes together soon! Xx


  2. Ordering blue serum now! I am only a skip and a jump away from wanting botox (I’ve already hopped) so you sold me 🙂 My skin is wild and crazy since the babe was born and I definitely need a boost! I use Acure facial scrub to get off all of the dead skin and love it, it’s super affordable but all natural. Love being able to keep up with you and adorable B on WeGoWear!
