Yay for Babies! and Baby Beauty Products!

Hello all!

2015 is here! We have 360 days to make changes, improvements, or not do anything at all! I always find it so weird that people wait an entire year to make a change! ha.. oh well! 🙂

Anyways! 2015 is going to be a HUGE year for my husband and I because we’re having a baby! I’m due July 2015 and currently 14 weeks pregnant!

As soon as I found out I was pregnant I had to make a change in my beauty routine skincare wise!

First off, my regular body lotion WAS NOT cutting it for me anymore! My skin is so dry, tight, and itchy all the time I need to use the thickest body lotion I can find! I’ve been using a variety of different body butters for whatever mood I’m in, and how dry my skin is!

My go to is usually the Bath and Body Works Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Butter. bodybutter

This is such a great daytime moisturizer for me right now. This sinks into my skin quickly so it doesn’t smear all over my clothes, it keeps me moisturized all day, and it smells so good! I don’t think I have ever bought one of these full price, BBW always has a sale or a coupon so keep your eyes peeled! 🙂

Before I go to bed I like to use an oil based balm that is much thicker than a regular body butter. I got the Biggs and Featherbelle Belly Balm for Christmas and I have not stopped using it since! big-bell-2

It’s very thick and exactly what it says it is, a balm! It’s so hydrating and just feels so good to use after I get out of the shower and about to hop into bed! It doesn’t transfer onto my sheets or anything and doesn’t leave me feeling like a grease ball! I never feel itchy after using this and I don’t even feel the need to put any moisturizer on in the morning (but i still do!).

I carry around the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Cream for Stretch Marks around in my purse!

I like to keep this with me if my skin feels extra dry while I’m running errands or at work! This is just an easy body cream. I like this rather than the regular lotion because it’s a bit thicker and you have more control over how much product you use.

I got a gift set of the Mama Mio skin care favorites for Christmas. I haven’t tried everything in the kit yet, but I have tried the Mama Mio Glamorous Glow Facial Wash. mamamio

I love this stuff! It seriously leaves your skin glowing! I use this with my Clarisonic and it’s been a dream for my skin! I haven’t broken out at all since using this cleanser. I use this after all my makeup is off that way it can really reach into my pores and I can get a deep clean out of it!

These are the products I have been loving so far! I’m sure my routine will change once I get bigger! My biggest advice to you if you are pregnant is to moisturize your skin! If you don’t want stretch marks or really want to cut down on the stretch marks, you need to moisturize your skin properly!

What products did you use when you were pregnant?! I would love to hear about some of them!
