Make Yourself Beautiful with P&G Products + Giveaway

Life as a mom of 3 boys can get pretty dang busy and sometimes with a busy schedule, it’s hard to fit in a beauty routine?  I mean, how many of us moms have run our kids to the school and taken a quick trip to the grocery store in sweats with no makeup on and our hair in a ponytail?  This mom right here has!  The Motherhood worked with P&G on a fun new project that made having a beauty routine a little more easy and doable!

I received a gift bag filled with some great beauty products from P&G.  Here is a brief list of the goodies included in the gift bag!

- Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Serum (Redbook MVP Awards)
- CoverGirl Nature Luxe Gloss Balm (Oprah Spring Makeup O-wards)

I have a few daily beauty routines.  First, I remove my eye makeup at night.  Then I was my face both day and night.  I follow up with a moisturizer.  I use my foundation, concealer, blush, eyebrow powder, eye shadows, eye liner, mascara, and finally lipstick.  Occasionally (maybe once a month), I use a face mask.  What is your daily beauty routine?

    I use witch hazel instead of alcohol=based astringents on my face. It takes away the oil but doesn’t dry out or break out my skin.

    After I get done washing my hair in the shower, I put conditioner on it and wash it out with only cold water. It locks in the moisture. Also, I try to sleep—I have two boys under 5, so that doesn’t always work

    Use a silk pillow case for fewer “wake up” wrinkles.

    I put a little bit of pearly white eyeshadow on the inner corners of my eyes to make me look more awake.

  81. 282

    On the days that my face is really dry, I mix a couple drops of lotion with my foundation. It goes on smoother and smells good too!

    I wash my face twice a day and moisturize. It makes a HUGE difference.

    April V. says:

    I don’t really have any real tips or tricks although I have learned,now that I use it every day, to put on my night time moisturizer at least a half hour before bed or it all ends up on the pillow…

  94. 295

    If I don’t have time to get ready in the morning, I splash my face with cold water to get rid of morning redness and puffiness. I also pinch my cheeks for a bit of “blush” :)

  95. 296

    My main thing is to moisturize daily

  96. 297

    Use petroleum jelly on your hands and feet before you go to sleep. Then put on cotton gloves and cotton socks. When you awake your skin is very smooth

    I always remember to remove my make up before bed, exfoliate and moisturize! I have noticed when I do not do it my skin looks dull.
