Award Winning #PGBeauty Products Giveaway

Aussie Sprunch Spray

In the Late 1980s, Beauty (Yes, It's Subjective) Was a Priority For Me. Now? Not So Much.

What is your daily beauty routine? Are you like me? My daily beauty routine involves making sure I am not wearing a stained t-shirt after throwing my hair up in a messy bun. Yes, sad but true. See, I am the mom of two very awesome, special kids. Their schedules keeping me running like a crazy person and, to me, it’s more important that they are dressed to the nines, getting a good education and looking adorable than it is that I look awesome. I’d actually be embarrassed to post a photo on the internet of how I look daily (even more embarrassed than posting my 80s hair and blue eye shadow photo).

I am so behind the times and had no clue what the best beauty products were. So, I was excited to be introduced to award-winning P&G beauty products. One of them, was a favorite of mine years ago and I am very happy to have rediscovered it. It is theAussie 3 Minute Miracle. Until last week, I hadn’t had a trim for almost a year. I decided to get a good trim and now I have been using the 3 Minute Miracle since the trim. My hair is softer, bouncier and the curls are even more defined. I will be adding it back into my routine.  Aussie products bring back great memories for me. I remember when Aussie Sprunch Hair Spray went everywhere with me. It was a must for that perfectly done 80s hair that was popular when I was in high school. The 3 Minute Miracle was an Elle Essential pick along with the Crest 3D White 2 Hour Express Whitestrips. What busy mom has time to sit in a salon for hours getting a deep conditioning treatment or time to trek to the dentist multiple times for teeth whitening? With these two products, you can have white teeth and healthier looking hair and you can do it after you put your kiddos to bed so time is on your side. I can see why these products were chosen as an Elle Essential.

These Days, When I Take The Time To "Do" My Hair and Get Dressed Up, It Must Be Easy and Fast!

Need a spring awakening? When the temperatures start to heat up, it is time to refresh the old beauty routine, isn’t it? Why not update your warmer-weather beauty routine with must-have products that bear the seal of favorite women’s magazines. Secret Clinical Strength Waterproof was a Real Beauty Gold Star Awards recipient while Venus Bikini Trimmer received the Marie Claire 25 New Products That Will Change Your Life stamp of approval. I have been using the Secret Clinical Strength Waterproof for over a week now and I really like it. It gets H-O-T in Texas and waterproof is a huge plus. It dries fast, too!

Need a fresh, new look? Like I mentioned before, getting out of mommy mode can be difficult but when us moms want a polished, pretty style, it is easy to achieve at home, even when it’s one of those crazy mornings. Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Serum (a Redbook MVP Awards winner) and CoverGirl NatureLuxe Gloss Balm (Oprah Spring Makeup O-wards) are winners in my book. I have been stressed to the max and I have the tendency to get dry, cracked lips when that happens. The CoverGirl Nature Luxe Gloss Balm is becoming a mom bag essential for me!
