    My Skincare Routine for Congestions and Clogged Pores: Elucent Skincare Review

    I’m so excited I can finally share about some products from my skincare routine for congestions and clogged pores!

    I started weaning my son from breastfeeding shortly before he turned one in September, and boy did my skin hate me for that! I thought pregnancy acne was bad, but no one ever told me weaning acne would be far worse! To top it all off, seasonal changes was also a culprit. I had at least two new cystic acne appearing every week and my pores congested with tiny, skin-colored bumps with new ones appearing every day.

    I started on the La Roche Posay Effaclar System Kit, as I mentioned in my latest Empties: Buy Or Bye? post and it tremendously helped clear up my cystic acne, but it stopped there. After all my cystic acne disappeared, I was left with tons of red spots and discoloration, and my pores were still very much congested – all throughout my T-Zone and jawline.

    About 2-3 weeks ago I started using some products from the Elucent Anti Ageing range, and I was so shocked to see the results. I can’t believe the vast improvement I’ve been seeing on my skin.

    Check out my before-and-after photos and reviews of the products below. I will share my whole my skincare routine for congestions and clogged pores soon!

      Empties November 2017: Buy or Bye?

      I’ve never done an empties post before because I always tend to throw things in the bin when I use them up without thinking twice! So I’ve been trying my best to keep these empty bottles in my bathroom (although I accidentally threw away one!) so I can do a roundup of products I emptied out.

      Check out my thoughts on products I recently used up below and whether I’ll repurchase them – most of these are actually my holy grails because I rarely use up products I don’t like!

      Top 10 Best Charlotte Tilbury Products

      Top 10 Best Charlotte Tilbury Products

      One of the most frequently asked question I get is, “what is your favorite brand?”, which is usually followed by “what products do you recommend from that brand?”. Well, this post will answer those questions.

      My favorite makeup brand is currently Charlotte Tilbury. If I could only wear makeup from one brand for the rest of my life, this would be it. Everything about her makeup line is so glamorous, showstopping and spectacular. I love how gorgeous the packaging are and how carefully curated each of her products are.

      I know how expensive they are but for me they were worth the splurge! So I hope this list will help you identify which products will be worth your investment.

      These are my personal favorites from the brand. Read more about them below!
