Overshare: I don’t always shower.
Fact: many (maybe even most) moms don’t shower every day. Right? Please tell me I’m not the only one!!
Come on, ladies, you know you’ve been in my spot – two toddlers, too much on the plate …
If given the choice between a 10-minute shower, or a 1-minute insta-shower, 4-minute makeup application and 5-minute breakfast, I’m going for latter! I need food and I need good face. I can live without lavender shower gel for a day or two.
In my time-saving beauty hunt, I’ve found some insta-shower and insta-ready essentials that will make you look good and smell fresh even if you haven’t showered in days. (Okay, so I try not to drag on for more than two … okay three days … bit it happens. #Really #REALmoms.)
Below are some of my insta-ready, on the go shower essentials that can help you save time in the morning, as well as on-the-go.
YUNI Shower Sheets ($12) – Non-toxic, plant-based whips immediately cleans and deodorize. Sure they were probably intended for your gym bag, but hey when you gotta get clean on-the-go (even at your own home) this is a perfect option.
Caption Nails Onto The Next Crème Remover ($5.95) – Super fast, soothing on cuticles and a spill-proof casing, makes this remover ideal for busy moms that need a quick fix, when a mani appointment just isn’t an option and you have some polish coming off. No nasty smells, so kids won’t mind if you do this in the car – chipped nails even at daycare drop-off is NOT an option.
Sphynx Razor ($14.99) – When you find yourself shaving in a cab – ya it happened, please don’t judge – this is the best option. Genius inversion, a 3-in-1 razor that has refillable water spray bottle, moisturizing bar, and two blades. If you’re happy and you know it … yes, you can raise your hands! You’re shaved J.
Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo ($5.99) – Clean hair without stepping into the shower? Stop it. Freshen up you coiffe with this bad boy. The dry shampoo will absorb the oil built up since your last shower (and we don’t need to get specific on how long ago that way, right?)
And, in case you missed it, I spotlighted one of these insta-shower, insta-ready items in the recent episode of Pamela+Vanessa #momsandsandwhine. Did you catch it Monday night 9:30pm EST? Guess what, see video below.
