Slim on time. Slim on sleep. But not quite slim in body yet (post baby weight loss still going strong;)......that is my current beauty regimen. In order to make my routine roster a product needs to be easy to use, and provide brightening results for a very tired mom of a teething six month old and toddler transitioning to her big girl bed. Translation, a mom who needs sleep but ain't getting that any time soon. SO sad.
On the docket:
Dr. Bronner's Organic Lavender Coconut hand and body lotion. A lighter lotion for skin shedding that winter state of constant dehydration. The bright smell wakes me up immediately. A must pre-coffee.
Clarins Ombre Iridescente cream to powder eyeshadow, you had me at hello. It's creamy, easy to apply, and doesn't get all stuck and gunkified on your eye (or gasp, wrinkles!). It's a no-brainer for an easy pop of color that makes it look like you tried. Even though you didn't.
This Works In Transit No Traces wipes. When you don't have time to wash le face these will get you out of jail for free. Not full of all the gunk these types of wipes are usually full of, it gives you a quick clean post sleep.......or lack of.
Clarins Plus HP Tinted Daily Shield. It's tinted SPF magic. Layer over some moisturizer. Cause if you say you're a mom and use foundation daily, I'd call your bluff.
Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask. The jar says for 'instant glow'. They do not lie my friends. The key to looking even a smidge brighter is getting all those dead cells off. I use it weekly or more often for emergency purposes.
RMS nail polish in Sublime. This is a bold shade that screams sping and a polish I can use on my toddler without fear- free from formaldehyde, toluene, DPB, resin and camphor.
Clarins Eclat Minute Instant Lip Perfector in Plum Shimmer. Don't let this dark exterior scare you, it is the perfect shade for nearly everyone. It nourishes, repairs, and promises not to run off into any lines around the mouth. If you have those.
