What is the one thing us busy moms always seem to be short on? Time! Am I right? Whether we’re working outside or inside the home, we’re, more often than not, hard at work while taking care of our broods at the same time. So many of us tend to neglect ourselves, but it doesn’t have to be that way. We can be wonderful parents who are fully devoted to our families while focusing on ourselves too. And one area, I never try to skimp on is my personal skincare. I don’t mind looking my age. Hey, I’m in my thirties and proud of everything that has come from these years that I’ve lived, but I don’t exactly want to look any older. And if I do look younger than I am, I consider that a big bonus! That being said, I don’t have an hour each day to meticulously apply a slew of products. I need to get in and out. And that’s why I’m obsessing over what I’m calling the best beauty time saver, Simple Sugars!
Simple Sugars is an all-natural skincare line, specially formulated for sensitive skin, that’s made up of products that both exfoliate and moisturize your skin in one fell swoop. They aren’t just your run of the mill sugar scrubs. Oh no! This line is full on skincare. They are made to be used daily and can eliminate the necessity to have both exfoliators and moisturizers or lotions in your regimen. See why I call it the best beauty time saver?! Not only can I save time by cutting down on my skincare routine steps, but I can feel great about what I’m exposing myself too thanks to the all-natural ingredients that make up Simple Sugars. And did I mention that you can purchase flip top lids for under a dollar. That’ totally worth the convenience factor no?
So, let’s talk about some of the Simple Sugars body and face scrubs that I’m loving in particular. First we have the Almond Body Scrub with Emu Oil, which I can use on my baby girl too. Both of my kids had baby eczema. My son’s has gotten a little better as he’s grown, but my daughter still has it just as bad as she did when she was an infant. Finding products that work on her super sensitive, eczema prone skin is no easy feat. All-natural products without heavy fragrances tend to work best. As you can see, she’s rockin’ a spring ready frock that she wouldn’t have been able to otherwise as the skin on her arms was completely irritated before. The Emu Oil in this scrub provides extra gentle moisturization that’s perfect for skin affected by conditions like eczema. And again I stress…you don’t have to use lotion afterward. Excuse me while I do my happy dance. Applying lotion to my wiggly four year old is not exactly my favorite part of the day.
I’m also partial to the Green Tea Facial Scrub. It’s primary function is as an anti-aging product and you know how mama feels about that. Bwah! The green tea protects my skin from free radical damage which ages the skin. The antioxidants not only fight those free radicals, but they heal damaged cells, effectively reversing previous damage.
Just like with the body scrub, you don’t have to use a moisturizer in addition, thanks to its built in hydration. Now if you’re thinking that your skin will feel greasy after using this sugar scrub, think again. I can report, that my face feels nothing but super soft…and you’re going to love how radiant your complexion looks! This girl sports a rosy glow almost immediately after using it.
And a few more Simple Sugars favorites worth noting are the Coffee Facial Scrub, Green Apple Body Scrub with Emu Oil (which smells incredible and is a great alternative to the almond body scrub if you have nut allergies) and the Happy Feet Foot Scrub (hello at home pedis). That’s not everything though. There are a slew of different options that cater to your skin’s specific needs. Let’s all go NO-LO shall we?!
