Now that it’s summer, I’m all about protecting my skin when outdoors. I have long loved La Roche Posay’s skincare line and their Anthelios sunscreen is the best. I use it on my face whenever I’m going to be outside for a longer period of time. It wears perfectly under makeup, helps skin stay matte and most of all, the high SPF protects skin from burning. They also have a formula made just for the face, but I find the regular one to be fantastic as well (I have used and love both!)
Kiehl’s self tanner made my favorites list again because it’s just that amazing. I’ve tried so many of them over the years and this is the one that consistently delivers natural-looking color, doesn’t stink, has a perfect lotiony texture (super light and not at all thick) and the price point is just right (one bottle lasts a long time!) I use it on my face as well and it gives such an amazing glow and evens out your skin so nicely you can actually wear less makeup (or none at all!)
I received a gift package from L’Occitane at the RewardStyle conference in April and I’ve been hooked on their bath products ever since. Their bubble bath and shower oil have become my ultimate shower-time favorites. The shower oil gets you clean with zero residue and leaves you with moisture-infused skin (and has that beautiful sweet almond scent). The foaming bath is meant to be used (duh) in the bath, but since I’m a shower kind of gal, I just put a little bit onto my bath pouff at night time and let the amazing scent fill my shower. I love using this right before bed since lavender is also a natural sleep aid.
Have you tried using Glamglow Super cleanse?
My best friend told me about it and I was curious. So, I stopped by Sephora and loaded up on a week's worth of samples (I have no shame). Living in Houston, the humidity brings out shiny face syndrome to the extreme! But, this cleanser is MIRACULOUS. I truly to see my pores diminishing, my face is infinitely clearer and the shine? GONE. It's awesome.
I loved the cleanser so much, I went back to ask for the mud mask sample (which is a lot more money). Again, I asked for a bunch of samples and I used it twice a week before taking the plunge because I again saw results. My skin has that "glow" and I love it! I highly recommend them both. 🙂
thanks for the recommendation 🙂 I will look into it (maybe for post-pregnancy especially).

Loved this! I really want to try the body lotion/butter. It sounds divine. All of these products are beautiful.
I agree – La Roche Posay makes such great sunscreen!
Did you mention what cleanser you use during pregnancy? I've been using La Roche-Posay Effaclar Deep Cleansing Foaming Cream ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00150GP3U/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=219G1IQK1JSPS&coliid=I1W61ZQ777QKYB ) but it just occurred to me that may not be safe to use.
What do you recommend?
I use La Roche Posay effaclar cleanser (the gel kind) since it doesn't contain acne fighting ingredients 🙂 I used it my last pregnancy as well!
