Self Care Favorites

If you read my New Year post, you saw that this year I really hoped to focus more onĀ self care. Whether that’s time to myself, or taking better care of myself. With these products I get to do both! I put together a list of my current fave products that I use to get me a little ‘self-care’ time. (Just in time for Valentine’s Day!) And my skin looks all the better for it.

Pacifica Lotion Wipes– (Not an affiliate, but these are currently ON SALE at Ulta…I got mine at TJ Maxx in case you’re wondering.) I pop these lotion wipes in my purse for anytime I need a pick me up. Whether my skin is feeling dry or I feel stinky- come on, it happens. They have a nice, light scent (the scents come in the same ones as their perfumes, this just happens to be my favorite) and help add a little moisture to your skin without making you feel greasy. It’s a nice little breath of fresh air and hydration for my skin in the middle of hectic days. Bonus- they haveĀ never irritated my sensitive skin!

*Unbelievable Skincare Tranquility Balm– This little tin of balm is also the perfect size to pop into your purse or makeup bag. It can be used anywhere that you have dry, sensitive, tired skin and really soaks in and heals that area. It also can be applied to the back of your neck as a stress reliever, because the aroma is soothing and relaxing. A stress relief product that also helps heal dry skin- I’m sold! This one contains one of my favorite scents of all time- rosemary, and other essential oils like orange and tangerine. Sometimes when I’m feeling particularly overwhelmed, I just pop the tin open and take a few whiffs. All of us busy Mommas know, we need all the help we can get!

*Mogi Mousse Sugar Scrub– If you’ve ever been here before, you know I LOVE Mogi Mousse products. They are just amazing. They smell great, work so well, and every one I’ve tried I’ve fallen in love with. This sugar scrub is no exception! This scrub is the perfect blend of exfoliation and moisture. It scrubs away all the dry skin, and leaves my skin feeling so soft and hydrated. I don’t even *need* to put lotion on after if I don’t have the time. Like all of their other products, it also smells divine. Take this extra step in the bath or shower every so often to pamper yourself- you deserve it!

George’s Aloe Spray- This spray I get at my local natural grocer, and is one of my fave must-have products. I use it under makeup, as a setting spray, any time my skin feels dry, or I’m broken out. It’s just pure aloe that you can mist anywhere, anytime and feel refreshed. I’ll be packing it in my pool bag this summer.

Andalou Naturals Avo Cocoa Mask– I love masking at least once a week to pamper myself, and to keep my skin looking healthy. This mask has been a great one because it has helped with some skin issues, and let’s be honest- because it smells like chocolate. I’ve tried lots of masks, and this is a pretty good one to try. And it’s anti-aging. I’m turning 30 this year, so I had better jump on the anti-aging bandwagon.

100 Percent Pure Bright Eyes Mask– I mentioned these in my Christmas Gift Guide, but they’re worth another mention. They’re fun little eye gels that help reduce puffiness. And since becoming a Mom 5 years ago, I don’t think my eyes have ever stopped being puffy and having dark circles. Mom life. Anyone with me?

I am loving all of these products right now for pampering, and reminding myself to take care of ME every once in awhile. We have to remember to self care- it makes us better wives, mothers, people for that matter!

What are some of your favorite self care products?
