Back to School Must-Haves For Moms

This crazy busy back to school season has officially arrived, and if you’re a mom then you know this time of year can be a bit overwhelming to say the least. From filling out mounds of paperwork, helping with homework, packing lunches, and just trying to maintain complete sanity though it all (haha), we all know that staying calm and relaxed can sometimes be a challenge.

 

But that’s why I’m a firm believer in self-care and treating yo-self, not only for your own  health and well-being but also for the sake of your little ones who depend on you as well. Today I’ve partnered up with my friends over at BabbleBoxx to share some of my favorite “Pick Me Up” must-haves for moms, and how making time for a little R&R during the week can help keep you mamas looking (and feeling) refreshed.

Must-Haves For Moms

A Good Eye Cream

Up first on this list of Must- Haves For Moms is a good eye cream! Late nights and early mornings can unfortunately lead to the dreaded “mombie look”. Fortunately a good eye cream can help hydrate, brighten, and smooth fine lines around the delicate eye area. I’ve been obsessed lately with the new Mineral 89 Eyes Hyaluronic Acid Eye Gel from Vichy which consists of a unique formula of 89% Vichy Mineralizing Water, Natural Origin Hyaluronic Acid, and Pure Caffeine to give you that brighter, more well-rested look we all want.

Paired with my morning routine of using a cold jade roller on my face and under eye area, I’ve actually noticed a dramatic decrease in the appearance of darkness and puffiness under the eyes. If you’ve been on the hunt for an eye gel, use code BABBLE19 over here for 10% off from 08/10/19-09/30/19.

RESTORATIVE Hair Mask + Serum

Next up on the list is some restorative hair products. I’ll be honest – most days I don’t mind going in public sans makeup but my hair is a different story. I absolutely hate going in public with my hair looking a mess, so lately I’ve really been trying to give my hair some extra love. You might recall me sharing several favorite Colleen Rothschild skincare products in this post, but did you know they also have hair products? I recently got my hands on the Quench and Shine Restorative Mask, and ya’ll – it’s SO good!

As I do use a straightener and curling iron on a regular basis, split ends are my arch nemesis. Thankfully this hair mask is perfect for keeping split ends to a minimum in between trims and the ultra-rich blend of Kokum, Shea, Capuacu, and Bacuri Butters are great for re-hydrating the hair. Best of all you can use it once a week for an intensive treatment or as a daily conditioner if your hair is in need of some TLC.

To keep my hair looking shiny and smooth, I’ve also been using the Smooth & Shine Hair Serum which is great for applying right before straightening or after curling my hair. Formulated with Cotton Seed Oil, this hair serum helps tame flyaways, reduce frizz, hydrate dry ends, and of course add a beautiful shine to the hair.

Use Code BOXX20 over here to save 20% off any regular priced product from 08/08/19-09/31/19.

Cute + Comfy Sandals

Of course Moms need all the cute and comfy shoes for running errands and picking up the kids from school. These adorable Cushion Bounce Vista Gold Sandals from Reef are perfect for both casual or dressier looks and the cushion bounce foam footbed makes it feel like you’re literally walking on clouds. They also have arch support, heal cupping, and a high-density rubber sponge outsole for both comfort and durability. Did I mention they come in 8 cute colors?

A Beautiful Necklace

Last but certainly not least, all moms deserve to feel special and pretty and this Forever One Pendant from Charles & Colvard is absolutely beautiful! I’ve been a huge fan of Charles & Colvard jewelry for years, and I’m literally over the moon to have a piece in my jewelry collection now.

This pendant gleams in 14K white gold with 0.50 carats of moissanite gemstone – the world’s most brilliant gemstone, and unlike other gemstones this one is lab created and not mined. If you want to check out their other gorgeous fine jewelry pieces, head here. You can also save $50 when you spend $299 or more using code MOMGOALS (valid 8/1/19-09/30/19).

      It is very hydrating (which is something I personally struggle with in my undereye area).

      They are seriously SO comfy! And her hair products are just as amazing as her skincare products. I’ve been using the mask once a week and it’s made my hair so much softer/silkier (plus it smells amazing!). Thanks for commenting girly! šŸ™‚
