I’m not one to wear tons and tons of makeup. My makeup routine is pretty simple: a dusting of powder foundation, a dab of bronzing powder and lots of mascara. But I noticed after having Joseph that my makeup routine was not cutting it – my skin was dull and just overall blah due to all the pregnancy hormones. In addition to replacing all those cups of coffee with water, I’ve been looking for a product that would allow my skin to breathe and shine on its own. Which is why I was super excited to be offered the 30 of beautiful challenge and try the new Clarins Double Serum! I’ve been a fan of Clarins for many many years and I’ve heard amazing stuff about the Double Serum.
Clarins Double Serum is powered by 20 pure plant extracts and potent, high-tech molecules—Double Serum’s innovative, dual chamber system combines two age-defying formulas into one groundbreaking serum that reactivates skin’s vital functions and promising results in just 4 weeks. I wanted to give this product a really fair shot so I went without makeup and moisturizer during the 30 days (only during my days at home) and let the product really do its thing.
I religiously applied it after washing my face in the morning and at night. One of my favorite things about the double serum is the smell – it’s divine and exactly like you’d expect any Clarins products to smell – rich ! I gave it a couple of days before I started to analyze my skin but I could literally feel it working. My skin immediately felt more plump and softer. Within 2 weeks it was noticeably brighter to the point where I was able to skip my foundation and that’s when I was hooked! After the full 30 days my pores and small fine lines were less noticeable. And it didn’t aggravate my sensitive oily skin which is a HUGE plus for me.
I realize that no amount of makeup or beauty product will ever match natural beauty but there comes a time in life when you need a little help, and Clarins Double Serum definitely does the trick and then some! So glad I tried this out – it has inspired me to keep up my new skin regiment and wear even less makeup.

Like any new mom, I’m totally obsessed with my beautiful new baby boy. He just started smiling and I walk around like I was the paparazzi snapping pics in the hopes of another great big gummy smile to share on Instagram. If you look at my Instagram feed you’ll notice that my kids are my usual focus (I have 5 boys so it’s sort of impossible not to be inspired). I always try to encourage them to do what they love and capturing those moments on camera is a dream come true for me!
