Review: New mom and mom-to-be skin care

By Twinkle VanWinkle, Lin Lifestyle Expert

Recently I received some skin care products to review and reached out to some respected bloggers to test them out and give their feedback. This is part seven in a summer-long series, featuring Stacy Quasebarth of Squirrel Chatter. -Twinkle

Recently I had the pleasure of trying Beauté de Maman’s line of skincare products developed by a board-certified OBGYN especially for the delicate skin of pregnant women. At first I was a little skeptical of noticing any sort of difference beyond the gentle approach I was already taking, but in fact, I was blown away.

I am typically not one for boutique skin creams as I prefer to be able to grab my beauty products at any local grocery – I am, after all, a busy mama! (*NOTE: the Beauté de Maman website says you can find their products at CVS now!) One-stop trips are key nowadays.

Between the face and body acne cream and the facial scrub, blackheads that have been on my nose for as long as I can remember have vanished – and we are talking post baby #1 blackheads here!  Pretty much a miracle worker this stuff! In fact I plan on using it after pregnancy to see if it will continue to help with my light adult acne issues. It cleared everything up that no product I have used before has!

It is made with gentle and natural ingredients like tea tree oil – which you can smell hints of in the acne cream. With hormones being crazy with breastfeeding etc., I am sure I will get way more than nine months of benefit out of these products.

If you are suffering from pregnancy skin issues, like hormone-induced acne, sensitive skin when you didn’t have that before and stretch marks – this line is the perfect product to try.

I imagine if you are not accustomed to the smell of tea tree oil that that might set you back at first on the acne cream, but I found it was still just faint enough to not bother my queasy tummy.

The facial scrub is indeed a scrub that I don’t prefer to use everyday. This typically doesn’t bother me at all, but if I am having a particularly sensitive night it does.
