Good tools are as important as the products. Keep reading why these three are among my daily essentials to get this busy woman/mama out the door in very little time….
Essence of Beauty blender sponge: Do you use liquid foundation, bb cream or something similar? If so, grab this! Similar versions can run up to $25 however Kaitlin Instagram’ed this and I’m so glad she did. At less than $5 from CVS, use the pointed edge for under the eyes, around the noise and mouth, and the wider base on your cheeks, forehead and chin. Just rinse with soapy water. Makes my make up — this BB Cream, in fact — go on so much smoother.
Olay Professional Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System: I really wanted to invest in the Clarisonic that everyone raves about just couldn’t justify nearly $200, or even $120ish for the mini version, so I took the leap when I recently had a 25 percent off coupon to CVS and got this to test. It’s a dual-speed cleansing brush with an exfoliating cleanser that seriously gives your face the smooth feel of a mini facial. It comes with this great exfoliator, or you can use your own. A total steal at under $30.
Remington Shine Therapy Straightener: Ok, compelled to share an oldie but favorite. Introduced ages ago by Jodi, I’m still a fan of this ceramic hair straightener that zaps major frizz without leaving my hair dull. I now go up to three (sometimes four) days between washes so I refresh with this between blow outs since my hair can slightly puff after a humid night out or have a weird shape after a good night of sleep.
