Review- Saranghae Skin 5 Step Process

I will preface this post with one fact. Pregnancy makes my skin quite nice on its own, but after I started this skin routine I’ve never gotten more “You’re glowing!” or “Your skin looks amazing!” compliments.

This is a review of the Korean skincare company Saranghae’s 5 step skincare routine.

Here’s a quick run down on what the 5 steps are-

1. I absolutely love the formula of this cleanser! I used to use a very foaming Dermologica cleanser and this one is MUCH more moisturizing. My very dry skin never feels dry after using it, I have never found another cleanser that can do that. I also haven’t had a single blemish since I started using it which is a great bonus.

2. This essence is AMAZING! I use it in the morning and before applying a full face of makeup. I used it like a primer and it made my foundation glide on and look super smooth.

3. The firming cream is very moisturizing, without being thick. It layers on the skin very light and smooth. I can’t say I’ve been able to see firming take place on my skin because I’ve only used it for two weeks, and at only 23 I don’t have TON that needs firming. But I do love to use it as a little moisturizer before bed, and to hopefully prevent aging on my skin. The only thing I’m not crazy for is the scent of this, but if a skin product is effective- it’s much more important than scent!

4. To be honest this is the first eye cream I’ve ever used, but I really like it. I did notice right away less puffiness under my eyes, which is a constant on me since I became a mom! It glides on very smooth, is a pretty thin, and a little goes a long way!

5. I love these! However, the first time I just stuck one straight on my face and it continually dripped liquid down my chest. So, the next time I decided to wring it out just a little bit first and that made it work perfectly. Afterwards, my skin felt insanely smooth and looked very youthful and dewy.

Overall this line of products is a big win in my book!

Ellie-20 months~ Mama- 38 weeks pregnant

Ellie- She just recently had her 18 month checkup and shots- because mama had a major case of pregnancy brain and forgot to bring her to her appointment last month. She had moved up into 84th percentile for weight and 62nd percentile for height! She’s come a long way from the baby who couldn’t gain weight using a nipple shield and kept falling way behind on the growth charts! So physically, she is getting bigger and stronger every day but she is still very clumsy right now!

Developmentally, she just blows me away. She started using 2-4 word sentences at about 17 months and her vocabulary is incredible at this point. She will repeat absolutely any words we say and is understanding concepts so clearly. She remembers processes so well. The other day she heard the shower turn off and said “Oh, daddy all done, towel!” And ran to bring him one. She also woke up in the morning and went to go get him to remind him he needs to turn the sprinklers on!

She’s also been getting a real sense of imagination, and loving to play dress up and match! Her favorite show is Spongebob, and her favorite movie is Frozen. She still sleeps with her purple owl “lovey” or as she pronounces it, “muffy.” Her favorite toy is Play-Doh! She’s still been sleeping 10 hours a night with a two hour nap during the day.

Mama- Oh, my, goodness. Am I ready to be done with this pregnancy! I’ve been struggling a lot with the ending stages. I’m worried every day now that this baby is growing too big, since Ellie was almost 10 pounds. The anxiety over this is really weighing on me during these last weeks. Coupled with the fact that her movements have slowed down, I’m nervous all the time. Im reminding myself that she moves less because she’s run out of space now, but then I go back to worrying about having another 10 pounder. 😂

Every person I see comments on how huge I am! I understand too, because the bump is OUT there! I keep under estimating where my bump sticks out to and brushing into door frames or tables or counters, and blistering the very thin skin on my belly.

Physically, it is very hard to lift Ellie as she’s just over 25 pounds and the weight limit for lifting while pregnant. Bedtime routine is when I really feel the full extend of this last month of pregnancy. Bathing her has become nearly impossible with the squatting, scrubbing, and even reaching the drain plug! Then I take her to her darkened room for lotion and pjs and getting myself up off the floor after and lowering her into her crib just take everything out of me! Nothing else will be easier once I have baby number two, but at least I won’t have these giant belly struggles anymore!

I go back and forth between the overwhelming desire to be done with this pregnancy and meet my second sweet girl already- and wanting to soak in every last moment of this special time with Ellie before life gets crazier.

Overall, I’m dwelling on the fact that this season of life I’m in is just truly wonderful and exciting. I’m Reminding myself to enjoy the adorable age Ellie is at and savor my one on one time with her. While looking forward to having another one of the most exciting moments of my life to meet my second baby! These two beautiful girls give me so much purpose and happiness. ❤️
