Doesn’t that totally sound like the name of an informercial?

It’s not a come on. It’s merely me, talking about a few beauty products (compliments of P&G), and sharing my own personal “beauty” routine, for lack of a better word.
Now, I know you are all very beautiful people on the inside. And I know that’s where real beauty lies. But let’s face it. It feels good to feel good on the outside too.
As a mom, I often hear how our appearance gets neglected. It’s not that we don’t care. It’s that we seem to have so little time and energy that it ends up really, really low on the priority list.
I’ll admit that I, too, have had days when I can’t remember the last time I showered. And I don’t have a newborn to blame it on anymore. In fact, it’s been five years since I had a newborn so I really don’t have any excuse, other than laziness and the desire to sleep later in the morning.
But the reality is that it doesn’t take me very long to get to a point where I feel good when I look in the mirror. In fact, I sat down and recorded exactly how long it took me to feel good. It was exactly one hour.
I know. One hour in personal time is like seven hours in mom time.
Every so often, I take a spa day where I get a little extra time in the bathroom and I take a long luxurious soak. So, of that one hour, forty minutes was spent soaking in the tub. Twenty minutes was all I really needed. Take a look at seven of those twenty minutes and see if it differs from your morning beauty routine.
And, these weren’t just any old products. These are award-winning products. Products that magazine beauty editors and the like think are the best of the best. I dug in.
