I love connecting with other Super Mommas who are constantly hustling. For this next collaboration, I decided to get together with fellow mommy-blogger, Sharzad Kiadeh. Because we all know that this woman keeps sh*t real!
Sharzad and I first met a few months ago where we talked about what to expect after having a C-Section.
Now we’re talking about our hero beauty products since we’re busy mommas. There’s only a few products that us moms must throw on before we walk out the door. Whether it’s a good lip, some brows, or even a hat… we all have something.
Watch the video below to find out what ours is and let me know your Momma Must Haves in the comments below!
My Hero Products:
IGK Down & Out Dirty Spray - All of you mommas can relate to this hero product of mine… WHO has time to wash their hair? Not me, that’s who.I’m lucky if I get in a 5 minute shower. This product instantly gives me a fresh shampoo in a matter of seconds.
Babor 3D Hydro-Gel Eye Pads - For those of you who follow me on Instagram you know how much I love a good under eye pad. Just like how I don’t have enough time to shower, I don’t have enough time to sleep. #MomProblems, am I right?! These eye pads give me all of the hydration I need to make it appear like I got a good night’s sleep. I’m telling you mommas… these are miracle workers.
Conscious Coconut’s Coconut Oil - I found this product this summer and our entire family absolutely loves it. Our family suffers from extremely dry skin. My husband and son [Brooks] both have eczema and this is one of our favorite products to cure it. It’s organic, smells good, and makes all of our skin baby soft. Not only does it do wonders to our skin, but also for every tube purchased, they donate a meal to a child in need.
Ilia in “At Last” - This product is for those times when you just need an all-in-one. It’s on my must-have momma list because when you’re on the go, all you desire is just one product that can do it all. This mulit-stick from Ilia is the perfect lip and cheek product and I die for it.
Honest Beauty in “Generous Kiss”- I have to give the credit to Alba on this one. Her lip gloss that she made is perfect to add that instant color. It’s sheer, but gives the perfect sheen to any skin ton or hair color.
Sharzad’s Hero Products:
A baseball cap - I absolutely died when Sharzad pulled this one out because it’s SO true. I can’t even count the amount of times I’ve tried to hide my dirty hair and bare face. Sometimes all we really need is a baseball cap to hide our happy mess.
Redken’s All-in-One Multi-benefit Treatment - Sharzad says this is a one stop shop for everything. Like I said above, it’s really hard to even take the time to wash our hair so this product is a great no-fuss product that works as a conditioner, detangler, adds shine, controls frizz… it’s literally everything you need in one bottle.
Kate Somerville Unkomplicated SPF Setting Spray- So this is a brand new product to me, I’ve never heard of Kate Somerville’s SPF Setting Spray and now I’m hooked. I’ve been told by so many makeup artists in the past that I need to start using a setting spray in my makeup routine but I constantly try to keep that part out. But what makes me love this is that not only is it a setting spray, but it has SPF in it! We all know how important it is to apply sunscreen daily … so this is another two for one product that all mommas need.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer - Sharzad and I both share this product as a must-have. My color is “nutmeg” and hers is “ginger.” I’ve used my fair share of concealers in the past and let me tell you, this one just hides all of the sleep deprivation like it’s nobody’s business!
Smashbox’s Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick - Sharzad had a great point with this product, you always look so put together when you have a red lip. I don’t know what it is, but it’s true. All you need is a some concealer, maybe some brow, and this Smashbox liquid lipstick and suddenly, you have your sh*t together!
