the best time saving beauty finds

July 31, 2013

While my bathroom counter and shower might be loaded up with random beauty samples, don’t get jealous too fast: this mama and business owner x 2 rarely has time to scout out new products, or at least test them enough times in a row to know that they’re as amazing as the claims. You should see the getting ready situation here: always 10 minutes late, daughter clamoring to play make-up and take apart my pretty storage (i.e. this), all while trying to field early morning client emails and blog comments.

While I’m always open to new products, it needs to be pretty spectacular if it’s going to find a permanent home here. Here’s some of my favorite functional, time-saving and tried and true go-to products that I keep going back to… though there’s one newbie in the line-up:


Keep reading for more about these products, and why they’ve become morning beauty essentials.

vaseline spray & go moisturizer:  has me regularly moisturizing again! a continuous spray lotion that’s fast + effective.
mitchum power gel: love this clear deodarant in shower fresh.
sonia kashuk ultra luxe lip gloss: great color saturation with shine, and impressive staying power. For $9.
almay eye make-up remover pads: removes anything in a heartbeat, and doesn’t irritate.
garnier shine spray: adds shine, and smells so good (like I get mad compliments when people hug me, no joke!).
beauty protect & detangle: protects from heat, detangles and is 100% vegan
 supergood cc cream: It’s an SPF, evens my skin tone and has none of the bad stuff! {not pictured}

Do you use any of these? The new one on the scene is this Vaseline Spray, which I got to tell you, is really good. It comes in three types, though this “original” is my favorite. No major fragrance, sprays super easily, just give a fast rub on your leg or wherever and bam! You’re done, and no oily residue, which I hate. Swear it’s the reason I’ve been regularly moisturizing. File this under, why didn’t someone think of this before? The spray = genius.
