Even if you’re not a mom, Cool Mom Picks is an amazing resource. Written by super savvy and super busy women who happen to be mothers, they take all of the legwork out of finding fabulous things. Basically, it’s well-curated and budget-conscious, so what’s not to love? With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we asked their publisher and CEO, Kristen Chase, to tell us about some of her can’t-live-without time-saving items.
With the weather finally turning (finally!), we’re all crawling out of our veritable holes to enjoy the gorgeous spring weather, which means it’s the perfect time freshen up your wardrobe and yourself. If you don’t have time for a spa visit just yet, we’ve put together five of our favorite products that will get you spring ready right in the comfort of your own home.
Weleda Skin Food: These amazing natural products live up to their name; they smell good enough to eat, and they work wonders on dry skin.
my face works Sheet Mask: Give yourself a quick facial right in your own bathroom with my face works. We’re particularly enamored with the “i need to wake up” sheet, which might just be the motto for all moms everywhere.
NARS Orgasm Illuminator: If you don’t have time to put your full face on, just pop on some mascara and add a little NARS Illuminator to the apples of your cheeks. You’ll look fresh and flush. Hence the name.
Stila Lip Glaze: Think lip balm and gloss all in one easy smart applicator. It even stays on through one cup of coffee. Or glass of wine, depending on the kind of day it’s been.
Zoya Nail Polish: You won’t have to worry about the kids wrecking your nails. Zoya nail polish stays on longer than many of the other popular brands. And even better, no formaldehyde.
