As a mum of four it’s fair to say I’m often short on time, especially in the mornings when there are four kids to get out of the door by a certain time every day.

It’s also fair to say that as a result of being a busy mum my makeup bag and bathroom cupboard could do with a refresh and an update, because I just don’t get to use a lot of products as often as I used to.

If that sounds like you too and you’re on the hunt for some must-have beauty staples in this collaborative post here are six essential beauty products for busy mums!

6 essential beauty products for busy mums

1. Makeup remover

Whether you use full-face makeup or just the basics like me, according to the experts we should never sleep with our makeup on. Which is where a good makeup remover comes in. Buy a makeup remover that gently removes smudges before you sleep, and use it with warm water to clean your face and let your skin take in the fresh air at night as you rest.

2. Cleanser

Another beauty essential is a high-quality cleanser, because any product you apply to your skin should be properly removed. Cleansers are made with formulas and ingredients that restore healthy, youthful skin. Consider using cream cleansers or foaming gels for sensitive skin, and always use cleansers before you apply anything on the skin and when removing beauty products from the skin.

3. Moisturiser

Like a high-quality cleanser, a morning and evening moisturiser routine will keep your skin youthful and healthier. Moisturiser is an essential part of a brightening skincare routine and is perfect for restoring dry skin and preventing skin damage under the sun. Always apply a moisturiser before wearing makeup and SPF.

4. Shampoo and conditioner

There’s no need to break the bank for a good hair regime if you have quality shampoo and conditioner. Invest in high-quality shampoo and conditioner to make your hair smooth, shiny, and beautiful all day long whatever the weather.

5. Perfume

Perfume can be a versatile product in every woman’s beauty arsenal. Scent reflects personality and character, and you can captivate this by using designer perfumes. Alternatively, you could make designer perfume a more affordable option by sticking to travel-size bottles.

6. Lip gloss

As well as keeping your lips fresher, healthier, and more moisturised, lip gloss can also make a statement. Use a variety of colours and styles on your lips and buy what you love to bring in the fun with bright, beautiful lips.
