THE MISADVENTURE TALKS: DEODORANT, SHAMPOO & OTHER MYTHICAL BEASTS

3 Permalink

Did any of you guys check out the Live TV musical of Grease on Sunday?  I’m hopelessly devoted to anything Grease related but It. Was. So. Good.  Frankie Avalon’s song had me thinking – am I my own beauty school dropout?

Before the blessed event I dedicated a lot of time in front of a mirror.  I had a perfected make-up routine every morning and a down-to-a-science cleansing routine at night.  But now I have breakfasts to make and lunches to pack and shirts to wrestle with and socks to find.  At night I have dinners to figure out and games to play and baths to pour, books to read and songs to sing and ultimately a bed to pass out in.  My “beauty routine” is a story sad to tell.  I missed my midterms and flunked shampoo. How do you guys make it work? Did you keep your same routine post kids? Do you use any particular products to streamline getting ready for your day or closing up shop at night? How many showers do you typically take during the week and where do you put the kids while doing it? Do you brush your teeth in the morning AND the night? Welcome to The Misadventure Talks.

Rules of Engagement

  1. Don’t be a poopie head
  2. Write your thoughts in the comment section below here or on my social media pages under the relevant post. Tag a friend you think might benefit from reading about other experiences. Do you know someone going back to work after maternity leave? Do you know a Mom who is so busy with the kids in the morning they don’t have time to eat? And so on.
  3. You don’t have to be a Mom to engage, just ref: #1, please.
  4. This is a discussion, nothing’s up for judgement

 

Q: What does your morning and/or night “beauty” routine consist of post kids?  

MIM’S TAKE:

I’ll be honest, sometimes I dread the morning routine because I feel rushed and pressured to get it all done while still giving my kids the attention they need.  I’ve completely streamlined my morning “beauty” routine into 5 minutes to leave time for everything else.  I put the kids in the tub with no water and let them play with the toys while I do the following in the bathroom –

Deodorant – My favorite one has no aluminum, a great smell, and actually works

Face Wipes – The perfect ones are made by Simple Skincare  

Face Cream – I get asked what face lotion I use a lot.  That’s how good this one is by Dermatologica

A little bit of this on the pucker

A quick swipe or two of my favorite mascara – Grow Luscious

A little dab of this under the eyes – SmashBox Camera Ready

By the time I get to brushing my teeth at night I’m usually too exhausted to spit…

Your Turn. We’re all ears.
