As Mom’s, we all know what little time we have to take care of ourselves. Sometimes we’re only able to wash our hair once or twice a week and for some with hair that gets greasy, this is not ideal whatsoever. With my hair, since it’s super short, if it’s not washed the night before or the morning of styling, it will just stick up everywhere and parts of my hair are just too short to straighten it. -See Traumatizing Haircut post to know why it is too short.

Sometimes it’s not even just not having enough time… Sometimes we decided to take naps with our toddlers instead of showering.
Here are my top 5 beauty products that have saved me from looking like a sloppy, Zombie-mom numerous mornings. (Probably like every morning honestly.)

Dry Shampoo is truly a mom’s saving grace when it comes to 3 day old, greasy hair. I’ve tried a few different one’s and the one that worked the best for me was the Wal-Mart brand, Equate.

Hair Wax. Since I have real short hair, I always have short fly- away hairs that always stick up. I use this pretty much every morning. It’s a life saver. It keeps me from looking like I stuck a knife in an outlet.

Rose Face Oil. This stuff is amazing! I have dry skin and it often flakes. I don’t ever have time for face treatments of washes except for the face wash I use in the shower. This stuff makes your face feel soft and smooth. It doesn’t leave your face oily looking either! I love this stuff!

Physicians Formula Cushion Foundation. I’ve always hated liquid foundation for a few reason. One, I don’t like how thick liquid feels, reminds me of frosting. Two, It’s messy. It usually end us everywhere, but this foundation is awesome. I switched to this because powder started making my skin look even more dry and peely. This is light-weight and is dispersed by a sponge so you never put on too much! Love Love Love this!!
Physicians Formula Organic Mascara. Yes, there is organic mascara. This is completely all natural and hypoallergenic. The brush is 100% recyclable. It doesn’t clump your eyelashes together, so you won’t have to take the extra time to separate your eyelashes with a safety pin, trying to get them to not look like squished spiders.


Physicians Formula Booster. This just adds a little extra something to your “I didn’t have to shower, attempting to not look like the walking dead” morning look, and it actually works out pretty well for me.

If you all haven’t noticed, I’m a fan of physicians formula. It’s in between the cheap and too damn expensive for makeup price range. I don’t know about any of you, but I am not willing to spend an arm and a leg on makeup when I barely have time to use it.
