Beauty Products For the Sleep Deprived Momma

Basically every mother is sleep deprived, whether it’s because their little one’s are up during the night or they have the infamous “mom insomnia”. Either way, not enough sleep really takes it’s toll. I know this because I, too, am sleep deprived and IT SHOWS. The under eye bags, the dull, dehydrated skin, the *wince* breakouts, I have all of these. And, since my son is showing no signs of magically becoming a good sleeper, I have been on the hunt for products that can help me fake a good night’s sleep. You know how they say, if you look good, you feel good? It’s true! I was tired (pun intended) of feeling like crap and the products I’ve reviewed below seriously helped me get out of that rut I was moping around in. Also, coffee. Lots of coffee. I’m still tired af but, hey, at least I look good.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Face Moisturizer Gel-Cream to Hydrate and Smooth Extra-Dry Skin, 1.7 oz

NEUTROGENA HYDRO BOOST HYALURONIC ACID GEL CREAM

This facial moisturizer is a literal miracle worker. I have naturally dry skin. Add the lack of sleep and BAM, I look like I’ve been stranded on a desert for the past year. The most important ingredient in this gel is the hyaluronic acid, which absorbs up to 1,000 times its weight in water AND restores the skin’s natural barrier against moisture loss. That’s big. Although this is a gel, it DOES NOT leave the skin feeling sticky. Like, at all. It also smells like heaven in a jar.

HONEST BEAUTY CREME CHEEK BLUSH

No sleep sucking the color right out of your face? No problem. Honest Company has a new beauty line made without parabens, paraffins, talc, petroleum, mineral oil and synthetic fragrances, which is great for dry, sensitive skin. This creme blush comes in four amazing shades and leave the skin looking dewy and fresh. I use Coral Peach and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.

Honest Beauty Paraben Free Magic Beauty Balm Stick with Coconut & Sunflower Seed Oils, 0.28 oz.

HONEST BEAUTY MAGIC BEAUTY BALM STICK

Here’s another Honest Company product I use everyday. I use this on my cheekbones and on the bridge of my nose as a super subtle, dewy highlighter. It’s made with coconut and sunflower seed oils which also add some extra moisture.

Jade Roller for Face 2 in 1 Gua Sha Tools Including Rose Quartz Roller and Jade Face Massager 100% Real Natural Jade Facial Roller Anti Aging Face Roller Massager by Deciniee

ROSE QUARTZ ROLLER

I started using this because of Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye. He talked about this amazing tool that decreases under-eye puffiness and increases circulation, giving your face an instant pick-me-up. I heard that and my ears literally perked up. Well, he was right. You can also dab a little de-puffing or anti-aging cream under your eyes and use the roller to massage it into the skin. Definitely a must-have.

Lumify Redness Reliever Eye Drops 0.25 Ounce (7.5mL)

BAUSCH + LOMB LUMIFY REDNESS RELIEVER EYE DROPS

They say the eyes are the window to your soul, and when your soul is tired af your eyes tell it all. Just like its name suggests, these drops illuminate your eyes. It’s amazing how just a few drops instantly whiten and brighten the eye, making you look fresh and rested. It also reduces that dry, itchy feeling you get when you haven’t gotten enough sleep.

L'Oréal Paris Skincare Pure-Clay Facial Cleanser with Charcoal for Dull and Tired Skin to Detox & Brighten, 4.4 fl. oz.

L’OREAL PARIS PURE CLAY CLEANSER WITH CHARCOAL

This cleanser is really amazing. First off, it changes from a clay to a mousse as soon as you add water. Second, the charcoal ingredient completely removes dirt, oil and pollution from the skin, which leaves skin looking clear and healthy. Lastly, you can use this cleanser EVERY. DAY. It leaves my dull, tired skin looking more clear and radiant and I honestly don’t know what I’d do without it.

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Concealer, Medium, 0.28 fl oz.

IT COSMETICS BYE BYE UNDEREYE FULL COVERAGE CONCEALER

They call this “8 hours of sleep in a tube”, which is 100% accurate. Not only does is fully cover dark circles, but the anti-aging peptides, vitamins, antioxidants, hydrolyzed collagen and hyaluronic acid all found in this concealer are clinically shown to add moisture and make skin look younger.
