If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat you’ll know I made the biggest announcement on Valentine’s Day! I can’t believe I’m going to be a mama!! So much has changed in my life in just 6 months and in just 2 months I’m going to have my own little human to love and spoil. My pregnancy has been such an emotional rollercoaster of hormones and changes and as challenging as it sometimes is, I know it’s worth it for my little peanut.
Now that I’m in my 3rd trimester I’m feeling the kicks and somersaults even more which is so exciting, with all of that fun stuff comes back aches and sleepless nights trying to get comfortable. Bedtime involves 3 pillows strategically placed to make sure I don’t roll onto my back, 1 to support my growing tummy and another in-between my legs to support my pelvic alignment.
I now know my little human’s routine and this little one is going to want to party at night haha..when it’s bedtime for me it’s party time from about 9pm onwards with rib kicks and my bladder used as a trampoline! I’m smiling as I’m writing this, just the thought of growing a human is one of the most surreal and miraculous experiences, honestly God is amazing!! Can’t wait to share more of my final months of pregnancy, I’ll be sharing my favourite pregnancy products, foods, clothes etc.

When it comes to skincare I love trying new products. I have combination skin where my t-zone is drier than the rest of my face so I like to use heavier creams all season, sometimes switching to lighter creams depending on how my skin feels. So when I received the Drops of Light collection from the Body Shop I was more than delighted to try them out.
Of all skincare products I am obsessed with serums, elixirs, concentrates etc. The Brightening Serum and the Essence Lotion is the perfect addition to my routine and it doesn’t leave a residue on your skin. You don’t want products feeling heavy on your skin so this serum is the perfect 1st layer of your application. According to The Body Shop it is, “A very lightweight serum that absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving it velvety soft and shine free. Clinically proven to reduce the number and intensity of dark spots.” Now the Essence Lotion I love especially during winter especially because it is a gel-to-water formulation! It penetrates the skin so quickly and adds extra hydration especially with the drying effects of the winter cold.
So the last step is the Day Cream and the Multi-Protection Essence. The day cream is a lightweight formulation so if you you love lighter moisturisers then this is perfect for you! But for me I’d use it in the summer because it’s lighter than I usually prefer. The Multi-Protection Essence is an absolute favourite and I never leave the house without applying! It is “A feather light, milk-to-water essence with broad spectrum UV filters, brightening red algae and antioxidant Vitamin C, to help protect skin against multiple skin aggressors, while providing utmost comfort.” AND it is SPF 50!! what more can you ask for!
Overall I love the whole collection, I can easily mix and match the products depending on what my skin needs.
Have you tried any of the products in the Drops of Light collection? Which one is your favourite?

A good cleanser is such a necessity! Having a skincare regime is the best investment you can make now for the future. After a long day out and about you need a cleanser that will remove all the makeup and dirt leaving your skin nice and cleansed. I won’t go into how important skincare is because I’m sure you know the short term and long term benefits. It can be overwhelming
