Top 4 Beauty NEEDS for Busy Moms

I am celebrating 10 years of being a mom this week! I still remember the moment that I first looked into our little girls big eyes. It’s crazy how fast that time flies!

This week I wanted to tell you my top 5 beauty must haves. If there is one thing that I’ve learned in the past decade of “momming”, it’s that some time self-care isn’t a long luxurious bubble bath, or a day trip to the spa. Sometimes it’s simply getting your self presentable within the 10 minutes you have before bolting out the door in the morning.

Revlon One-Step

This little device has changed my life SIGNIFICANTLY! It has literally knocked a half an hour of time off my routine. I had asked my husband to get it for me for my birthday, and he did, and I have used it every day since. The best thing about it was I could dry and style my hair at one time, and for being a busy lady, it drastically improved my life!

Nuetrogena Hydro-Boost Line

I cannot recommend this product line more! I started using the moisturizer the moment it came out. I have dry skin, but in the winter it turns extremely dry! This line has literally saved my skin. It gives me that nice dewy glow without looking oily and greasy. It is perfect under makeup, but quite honestly it’s made me comfortable in my own skin too. That’s a lot of pressure for a product!


I think Vaseline is a very under rated product. I use it for literally everything! Lips, eyebrows, even on my cheek bones to give an extra glow. My hands have been dry and cracking for the past year now, and at night time I will coat the top of my hands. So soothing!

Good Concealer

I don’t use foundation anymore. Even before masks over took our faces. I started buying a good concealer. I started with Tarte Shape Tape, and then Elf came out with a dupe. It’s the 16h Camo Concealer. I honestly can’t tell a difference, but I’m no expert. I just apply under my eyes, depending on how dark the circles are, blend it out, and go!

Wow, I’m not going to lie. I totally inteded doing my top 5, but it’s “mid winter break” and they are still responsible for school work “virtually”.

Hope you enjoyed my top four beauty tips!

  1. Don’t you love it when you get that one gift you love and actually use? A good gift is what reminds you of the giver every time you use it. My takeaway from your tips, therefor, is to give intentional presents. 🙂 An odd takeaway, I know, but one I FELT.
    Thanks for sharing!


  2. I agree about vaseline, it’s à great moisteriser too, only a little though. I have excema and it works for that, a good all rounder. I like your products.


  3. Vaseline is the best!! I used to use it all the time on eyelashes and a little on my scalp. Im convinced it made my lashes and my hair longer!


  4. As of next week, I have been a mom for 10 years too! Crazy how time flies! I would agree with these must-haves. I tend to under-utilize Vaseline, though. Thank you for the reminder! 🙂


  5. I’m about to have an 11-year-old. It does go so fast and you are absolutely right about having only ten minutes in the morning. Of course, those ten minutes are always interrupted minutes too so it’s important to find products you love and make it simple.


  6. I am a firm believer that every woman needs a good concealer – from busy moms to business-focused CEOs. That should be a staple in every makeup bag. After all, I have yet to meet a woman who hasn’t experienced circles under her eyes at least once (or all the time for some of us haha)

  7. You cannot go wrong when you have a good concealer! I like to put vaseline on my hands too, especially with all the handwashing/alcohol gel that is needed nowadays. Works wonders on the cuticles and dry skin around the nails too!
    Thanks for sharing 🙂
