30 weeks pregnant update

August 27, 2017
Hello Hello Skittle Biscuits,
Thanks for clicking to read my update! I am at 30 weeks now and our little nugget is moving a lot. Sometimes I can't even sleep because the kicks are getting so hard they keep me awake or wake me up. Actually, I was a bit concerned so I asked Dr. Google if it was normal because she was kicking SO MUCH! I found a forum and they said that it was better if the baby was moving a lot than not at all, so that did put my mind at rest. They also suggest that I walk around a bit so it could make the baby fall asleep.

3 hour glucose test, yes I had to take it since I failed the first test. And let me tell you, it was not fun! I was so upset when I got the phone call from the clinic. We were in LA on our babymoon so I just felt horrible afterwards. I totally felt like an unfit mom and I wasn't watching my desserts. So make sure to pass it the first time when they only have to stick you once!

Some tips for passing, no sugar or carbs for a week and drink lots of water.
I was pretty much hungry most of the week since I limited myself to protein and veggies. I am just so use to eating rice and bread!

here's a snack, spinach salad, with cucumber blueberries and some ranch

I also blame my dad for bringing lychee over the week before my 1 hour glucose tolerance test. UH, note to self and other expectant moms. You aren't suppose to eat lychee because the sugar content is SUPER high.

Well until next time! Leave me a comment if you have any questions!

PIT Cleansing Milk - Troiareuke

August 03, 2017
Hi Skittle Biscuits!

I am back with another kbeauty review!
Troiareuke sent me this cleansing milk to test and I absolutely fell in love. The consistency is similar to a lotion. It applies smoothly and easily with the brush.

To use this cleanser, start off with a dry face and apply it directly to your skin. Wait for 2-5 minutes and then remove it with a clean towel or beauty cloth.

PIT stands for Phase Inversion technique, it means that it changes state from water to oil and oil to water. That is why we leave it on for at least 2 minutes, the cleanser changes from cream into milk (water type).

I know I know, the price is a bit steep! But there is a reason why it is at this price point. There are 2 types of dirt, oil-dirt and water-dirt. Oil dirt can only be removed with oil and water dirt can only be removed with water. Many of us are guilty for using foam cleansers which have a surface active agent which is good for removing dirt but it also removes moisture, making your skin feel dry after cleansing.

Overall, I love how it removes extra dirt after my first cleanser and works well as a first cleanser as well. It does take a little extra time but it's well worth it. I highly recommend this for all skin types, especially sensitive skin because it works without rubbing or exfoliating. Till next time!
