Good morning! Today I want to talk to you about my morning routine, and how I feel refreshed while still taking care of a 1 year old. It's not always easy, but somehow I manage. I'll take you on a little journey through my morning routine and show you my new favorite bathroom products- Cottonelle® Clean Care TP and Flushable Cleansing Cloths. This post is brought to you by CVS and Cottonelle, and if you think you will like these products as much as I do, there is a CVS Cottonelle coupon at the bottom of this post!
Step 1: COFFEE. I might have a problem, but I honestly cannot do much of anything before I have my coffee. When Nora wakes up I go into her room and change her diaper, then it's off to coffee land for us. She has breakfast and I get caffeinated. Good to go!
Step 2: Shower? As a stay at home mom, I am lucky if I get a shower in the morning. I usually have to wait until the afternoon when the baby is napping. If I can't get a full shower in, I like to at least cleanse my face to feel refreshed, and also to keep my skin from exploding in mommy-acne. Yes, this is a thing. I just made it up.
Step 3: Makeup! To cover any of that aforementioned mommy-acne.
I normally do not want (or am able to) take the time to put on a full face of makeup. The products above help to make me feel a little put together, without taking too long to apply. On a regular day, all I use is a foundation primer that has SPF in it (two birds, anything to save time), a full coverage foundation, mattifying powder to keep me shine free, a little blush and mascara! In the picture I also included my eyeshadow primer, which I will dab on before applying a sweep of any shimmery neutral shadow. Looking good all in about 5 minutes. Nice!
Step 4: Get outside! I have been aiming to take more walks with Nora. She loves being outdoors, and a morning walk really gives me energy for the day. We are lucky enough to have a CVS within walking distance, so today I took Nora for a stroll to pick up some things we needed for the house, including the Cottonelle® Clean Care TP and Flushable Cleansing Cloths.
I have to say, having good toilet paper is super important to me. It's something people never talk about it, but they should! No one wants an uncomfortable bathroom experience, so I am happy to have found the Cottonelle® Clean Care TP and Flushable Cleansing Cloths. Since Cottonelle has cotton in their products, they are super soft and leave you feeling refreshed. The new Flushable Cleansing Cloths are a great new addition to their line, as they leave you feeling extra fresh and clean. I know Nora is not ready to be potty trained yet, but I have a feeling the cleansing cloths will be great for her when she's ready to learn. Also, the refillable container has a modern and sleek design, so it doesn't look out of place on top of your toilet.
So there you have it, an easy way to feel refreshed in the morning! Now, let's talk about bums. Grab the coupon from the link below and let me know how much you love the new products from Cottonelle! For more information check out the Cottonelle and CVS product page here.
