Back to Routine Kit

We are going into the third week of school here and are starting to settle into a routine. Olivia gets up at the crack of dawn to get ready for school and catch the bus. I wake up shortly after her to start my day. I’m an earlybird and hate to rush in the mornings. I dislike starting my day with chaos.

I have to wake the nightowl, Bridget, up every day. She does not like to get out of the bed in the morning! I get her up about 45 minutes before we have to leave for school. I’m still driving her and picking her up at school. We are waiting for the local bus transportation to her process her registration (I really hope that happens soon!)

Getting up early also lets me have a little bit more time to make sure I look presentable when I walk Bridget to the schoolyard. I don’t want to look like I just rolled out of bed. Olay, COVERGIRL and Secret have some skin care and beauty products that help me (and my oldest daughter) look our best even at the crack of dawn!

Olay Total Effects Pore Minimizing CC Cream: A moisturizer that does doubled duty and also improves the appearance of pores and uneven skin tone.

COVERGIRL + Olay FaceLift Effect Firming Makeup: Offers you coverage for an even skintone and also hydrates the skin and improves its natural firmness with just two weeks of continued use.

COVERGIRL + Olay The De-Puffer Eye Concealer: This product is a must for early mornings! If you have dark under-eye circles or puffy eyes, try this concelear. It brightens the eye area to counteract dark circles while the Olay rejuvenating serum soothes eye puffiness. The applicator is a cooling metal tip that gently massages under the eye as it blends the concealer and wakes you up!

Olay Fresh Effects {Acne Control Scrub!} Salicylic Acid Acne and Blackhead Clearing Scrub: Get a handle on breakouts with this exfoliating cleansing scrub. I’ve actually been using it since I still suffer from acne. I hope Olivia doesn’t follow in my footsteps. I like the citrusy scent and the way my face feels after washing it. So fresh and smooth!

Fresh Effects {Dew Over!} Hydrating Gel Moisturizer: A light gel moisturizer that cools and hydrates the skin. It’s what you need to wake up the skin on those early mornings!

COVERGIRL Ready, Set Gorgeous Concealer: I never like to run out of concealer! That’s one item I always make sure I have on hand for Olivia and myself. If I ran out and didn’t have any, it’s Murphy’s law that a big red zit would make it’s home somewhere on my face.

COVERGIRL Ready, Set Gorgeous Liquid Foundation: An oil-free foundation that evens skin tone and pulls oil and sweat away from the skin instead of trapping it under the foundation.

Secret Clinical Strength: Keeps you dry and fresh even during those really hectic days. Hyperhydrosis runs in our family so we need a little extra help in the anti-perspirant department. Thankfully Secret Clinical Strength offers us the protection needed to not always be worried about the dreaded “pit stains”.
