Back in December, I posted my skincare routine and review of the Elucent Skincare range here. My skin was so congested, I had clogged pores all over my chin and jaw, but two weeks into my new routine I was already seeing big changes.
Fast forward to April, my skin was so smooth, but it often felt tight and dry and my hyperpigmentation was still very much visible, so I made small changes made in my routine.
As effective as the Elucent Anti Ageing Night Moisturiser was at tackling clogged pores, it felt too light on my dry and dehydrated skin. As the whole Anti Ageing range contains AHAs, it can tend to dry out and over-exfoliate the skin and I simply needed to balance out my skin. So after I used it up, I replaced it with the Elucent Whitening Night Moisturiser as it is heavier in texture, but also added the Elucent Anti Ageing Serum to prevent my skin from being congested and Elucent Whitening Day Moisturiser SPF 30 to help target hyperpigmentation.
RY.com.au truly is one of my favorite online retailers for all things beauty, even before I started blogging! So of course I was beyond excited to review products that are available on their site.
Two of the things I’ve been testing out lately are the Philosophy Take A Deep Breath Oxygenating Gel Cream and the Philosophy Microdelivery Overnight Anti-Aging Peel kit. I also got to try out a couple of Illamasqua products, which I will feature in my next post!
For my review of the Philosophy products, keep on reading!

When I got out of the shower this morning, I realized one thing. Most of my current favorite hair & skincare favorites have green packaging! It certainly inspired me to write up a favorites post, which I haven’t done in for. ever.
So here’s a brief review on each of these products:

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!
