I think the consensus with being a mom is that you have to be intentional about taking care of yourself or you fall to the bottom of the priority list. I have gone through stages of taking really good care of my skin and then I completely fall off.
Some nights I would do a 20 minute routine and others I would go to bed with a full face of makeup.
I have spent way too much money on ordering special skin care products, and am always looking for a more affordable option.
I have finally found some great products that won’t break the bank while still giving you the perfect skin care regime.
These products also save you time and money. Two things that I value. So, here is the current routine I’m using each day:
I start my mornings with Noxzema® Classic Clean Original Deep Cleansing Cream. This has an amazing smell of eucalyptus and is a great way to start the day. It won’t dry out your skin either. Something that most products tend to do to my skin.
Then, I follow up with PONDS® Dry Skin Cream. This product moisturizes my skin deeply without clogging my pores. It leaves me with soft and smooth skin. The best feeling.
In the evening, I remove all the dirt, oil and makeup from my day with Simple® Cleansing Facial Wipes. I’ve been using these for a while and just love them. It takes me 2 seconds to remove my makeup. It removes it thoroughly and leaves me feeling clean, refreshed and ready for bed. Most importantly, it doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals or perfumes that will upset your skin.
If your looking for an extra bonus that will take your skin to another level try out, St. Ives® Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub. All you have to do is exfoliate 3x’s a week and it will reveal your skins radiance. This product helps reduce break outs before they even occur and is made with 100 % natural exfoliants.
I’m finally taking great care of my skin and keeping it healthy. I hope you will do the same!

Thanks for the tips! I’m always wondering what I can find at the drug store that actually works..before dropping a fortune at Sephora or online!
Awesome! I’m so glad!

I feel so much better when I take care of my skin. I hear you when you mention the nights of falling into bed with makeup still on! Great tips – I always appreciate a review of items I’ve considered purchasing but just don’t know if I want to try them out. Thank you for the ideas!
I know it helps so much! Thanks!
I love that I am familiar with all of these products, they are very affordable, and this is a pretty simple routine. I am trying to get my skin back on track. Maybe it’s stress, maybe it was because of my hair, maybe it’s because I haven’t been drinking enough water, but my face has been breaking out with little blemishes. Thank God I rarely get pimples, but it’s still not cute. I’ll try these products and this routine. I know that Noxema works wonders, I used to use it all of the time.
YES! Exactly! Stuff that works that doesn’t cost a ton is the best!
Love these tips! I am constantly looking for a good skincare regime ?
Thanks! It really is easy and works!
I’m a real slacker when it comes to my personal skincare. I love that these products are affordable!
I love how affordable these products are!
