My beauty routine is pretty basic these days (I will wear fake eye lashes again one day! I will!) And as a time-pressed mama, I’m always on the lookout for double duty products, products that can save me a few minutes on my routine and products that are not a waste of time, because ain’t nobody got time for that.
These are a few of the products I’m loving this summer:
Dove Summer Care Body Wash I’ve long been a fan of Dove because its body washes don’t dry out my skin–equally important in winter as it is in summer. The Summer Care has a light floral, citrus-y scent mixed with Amber and vanilla. Plus it has exfoliating beads–the eco-safe kind, not the plastic micro-beads–to gently exfoliate dry skin. Dove Summer Care Body Wash, $5.47 at Walmart.
Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Precious Oil My love affair with all things PTR continues with this anti-aging oil. It’s made from six rose stem cells and six rose extracts blended with black currant seed and passion fruit oils to soothe inflammation and moisturize skin. The best parts? The oil absorbs super fast AND provides broad spectrum SPF 15. I apply two drops to my face and chest before walking my pup every morning–and then forget about sunblock the rest of the day! Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Precious Oil, $80 at Sephora.
Gillette Venus Swirl Razor I barely have time to shower and I definitely don’t have time to shave my legs every day. That’s why I appreciate the Gillette Venus Swirl Razor. The head pivots on the flex-ball so I never knick my ankles or knees, not matter how big a rush I’m in. And it gives a nice, close shave so if–what do I mean if?–when I skip a day, my legs are still smooth. Gillette Venus Swirl Razor, $7.99 at Target.
And one makeup item…
CoverGirl The Super Sizer Mascara by Lashblast I may not make my bed every day, but damn it, I do find time to put on mascara! This summer, I’m loving the new CoverGirl The Super Sizer Mascara by Lashblast. Why? Because it has mega-impact and makes my lashes look super long. You twirl the wand as you apply, and I swear my lashes look like they double in length. It stays put all day and is easy to remove with my regular cleanser. Good thing because I have about as much time at the end of the day as I do at the start. CoverGirl The Super Sizer Mascara by Lashblast is $5.94 at Walmart.
