5 Beauty Products I Can’t Live Without Now I’m A Mum

Okay, so before we start this post I feel I need a slight disclaimer. I am in no way, shape or form a beauty blogger. I think it’s fair to say that at 30 years old I am only starting to really understand make up now and how to use it. There are a few products that are my go-to things to keep my face looking half alive and my skin and hair in some sort of decent state. Let’s face it now I’m a Mum morning beauty routines are about speed!!! So today I thought I would share with you my 5 beauty products I can’t live without now I’m a Mummy.

5 Beauty Products I Can't Live Without Now I'm A Mum

Dry Shampoo – This is just the law now isn’t it?! There should be at least one can of this in any Mums bathroom cabinet. Sometimes I get up late there is no time to wash my hair and this saves my life and makes my hair look and smell nice!!!

Hand Cream – I’m not sure if this is because I’m older now or because I’m a Mum that never remembers her own gloves just the three year olds but my hands get super dry now. There isn’t a huge budget in my house for beauty buys so any hand cream will do I’m afraid.


Concealer – If I barely have time for make up in the morning then concealer is a must. Not only does it cover any spots that I get but also those enourmous under eye black circles that have appeared since Little Man was born!

Tinted Moisturiser – The lazy girl in me loves this for the fact that it can do two things in one go. I don’t tend to wear heavy foundation so a tinted moisturiser gives enough colour but doesn’t make my face feel too caked in make up for every day.


Eyeshadow Primer – This is a new discovery for me but probably my favourite on this list. Before I discovered this (Thanks Zoella!) I would put eye shadow on at 6am for my working day and by 10am it had worn off. Not any more my friends, not anymore. Now after a thin layer of the primer my eye shadow is still on in the evening!! Even better the primer in the photos was only £1.99.

So there we are my top 5. Are there any big ones I am missing out on?

    I couldn’t agree more – especially dry shampoo! I don’t use an eye shadow primer though and definitely have the problem you mentioned so I’ll check that out – thanks! #justanotherlinky
