Beauty Favorites for Mom
Mother’s Day is coming up soon, which means it’s time to show some appreciation. I try to show my mom how much I love her in many different ways and since learning about the beauty community almost six years ago, gifting new products and sharing my best beauty tips has become one of my favorite ways to give back. I’m still very young and I’m not a mom myself yet, so I don’t know everything that a mom would need in her routine but I do know of some very trustworthy products that any momma would love.
I’ve done a few gift guides in the past that feature a few of these products and while I do still stand by those suggestions, this list is specifically for Moms. Whether she’s super busy, gracefully aging, or still running after little ones, I’ve got it all covered.
My first favorite and something that I’ve always loved is mascara. Even if you don’t wear any other makeup, curling your lashes and adding a few coats of mascara instantly brightens up the face. L’oreal’s Lash Paradise is definitely the best there is on the market right now. Not only is it super affordable at the drugstore, all you need is a few coats for insane length and volume. Both the original and waterproof versions are amazing!
Skincare is always the most important, makeup or not. This Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer is actually one that my mom recommended to me and now we both love it. It’s a retinol product that helps her reduce fine lines, whereas I use it for smoothing acne scars on my cheeks. We’ve both repurchased this multiple times and will continue to keep it as a staple in our routines.
I’m a complete hygiene freak and I’m certain I get that from my mom. I always remember her trying her best to make sure she took care of herself, oral care is especially her favorite. A lot of moms think they don’t have time to whiten their teeth, but with as thin and as comfortable as these Smile Brilliant trays are you can still do anything you normally would do for an hour a day.
Teeth whitening can be tricky, but the Smile Brilliant system makes it as simple as possible. I’ve explained their system in detail before -- which you can find here. It’s the only teeth whitening system I use anymore because they make it so easy and I’ve gotten such amazing results with absolutely zero sensitivity. They’ve even provided a coupon code, christinaschiccorner20, for you to receive $20 off your purchase! As if that’s not awesome enough, we’re also partnering together for my first giveaway! All you have to do is follow this link, fill in your name and email address, and you’ll be entered to win a whitening kit worth $149!!
We all want our nails to dry super fast, especially mothers! Almost every top coat on the market claims to be quick-drying, but nothing works as fast as the original Seche Vite. It sets rock solid in less than five minutes! After using this, you’ll be totally spoiled and unable to go back to anything else. It’s really addictive with how fast it dries!
I know the “mom-do” is just a messy bun and you’ll probably roll your eyes when I tell you that I can curl my hair in under ten minutes with this NuMe Lustrum Curling Wand Set, but it’s true! I have pretty long hair and I can always style it in ten minutes or less -- as I explained in a previous tutorial. Not only do these curling wands work extremely fast, they leave my hair super shiny and the curls stay all day. I see NuMe featured on Hautelook pretty frequently, so keep an eye out for that and you’ll be able to score this set for a great deal!
I can’t recommend all five of these products enough! I’ve been using them for years and they’ve never let me down. No matter what a momma’s preferences are, I think there’s something in this list for everyone that can either save time, multitask, or pamper. When you spend a few minutes for yourself, there’s no telling what you can accomplish!
