After birth, a pregnancy glow can turn into a hormonal mess very quickly – you break out and look tired, feel self conscious – having visitors coming to see you and your baby can send you into a downward spiral of self esteem issues that can rival the ones you had as a teenager. So when I was sent some Beauty Mint products to try — I waited until after Maddie was born.
I really wanted to put these products to the test!
I started my routine right away, and was amazed by the results. Not once since I have had the baby have I had an uncontrollable breakout. Sure, I’ve had a couple of blemishes — but compared to what happened to my skin when I had L: a sandy, hormonal rash like breakout that hurt — I will gladly take a few pimples over my face feeling burnt off. I am convinced that the Beauty Mint products have kept my skin under control, and I’ve tried ProActiv and other skin care systems with no luck. I didn’t expect it to work but, what I really didn’t expect was this:
I have gotten sooo many compliments on my skin specifically since the birth of my baby. Compliments! For example: I was told by my Aunt how my complexion was radiant, and how surprised she was at how good I looked 4 weeks after having a baby! She kept reiterating this all night: I look great.
People expect me to look tired and worn down, and guess what? I am! I’m exhausted (which is to be expected) but do I look the part of an overtired mom of a newborn? Nope!
I’m not one for a skincare routine, but before my samples run out, you better believe I am going to get on BeautyMint.com and order some more!
Disclosure: I was given Beauty Mint Skin Care Products to try for review purposes. All opinions are 100% honest, and 100% my own!
I’d love to be sent these for a review too! Lucky girl =)
