Super Quick Skincare for Super Busy Moms

Posted in Lifestyle, Sponsored


Finding time to take care of yourself as a mom is a constant challenge. One area that I’ve really been slacking on lately? Skincare. Particularly when it comes to my face. I’ve been on the lookout for a great skincare routine that fits into my crazy hectic schedule with ease.

When I heard about a weekly routine that includes products from some amazing brands that I love— Ponds, St. Ives, Simple Skin Care, and Noxzema—I knew I had to give it a shot. And man oh man, am I glad that I did!

With only 4 steps (and each step taking less than 1 minute!), this routine is super quick, leaves my skin feeling fresh and fabulous, and features products that are both affordable and accessible, thanks to Walmart’s low pricesWin!!



Super Quick Skincare Routine for Super Busy Moms

Easy skincare routine


1. Start fresh in the morning with Noxema® Classic Clean Original Deep Cleansing Cream



There are three things currently helping me wake up in the morning: 

  1. A strong cup of coffee with the perfect hazelnut creamer
  2. The sound of my baby quietly cooing “mom” and melting my heart to a legit puddle
  3. The tingly refreshing-ness that comes when using Noxzema Classic Clean 

Made with eucalyptus, soybean, and linseed oils, this dermatologist-tested cleanser deep cleans skin without over drying. It also helps remove dirt, oil, and makeup (because—let’s be honest—sometimes the night time removal doesn’t happen for us mamas).

I love it for busy mornings because it can be applied to either wet or dry skin, which saves you the step of wetting your face when you’re in a real time crunch. Just a few moments of gently massaging this cleanser into your skin, a quick rinse, and you’re left with fresh, clean skin—plus an extra little burst of energy to start your day!



2. Glowy Bonus Step! Exfoliate with St. Ives® Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub 3 times a week



Is anyone else completely obsessed with the smell of apricot, or is it just me? I love anything with an apricot scent because it’s not overpowering and leaves you with just a hint of crisp, fruity fragrance. Heavvvven!

The scent is just one of the reasons I’m in love with this Apricot Fresh Skin Scrub from St. Ives—my favorite product in this group! With 100% natural exfoliates like walnut shell powder, your skin is left smooth and glowing after each use.

For busy mamas, this scrub is an especially fantastic addition to your weekly skincare routine because you don’t have to use it every day. Just 3-4 times a week and you’re good to go!



3. Lock in that moisture! Apply PONDS® Dry Skin Cream to your fresh, clean skin

Now that your skin is clean and smooth, hydrate with this Dry Skin Cream from Ponds. “But I don’t have dry skin!”, you may be saying to yourself. Guess what, y’all—I don’t either. Plus my skin is on the sensitive side. And I still love this cream.

In fact, this cream was actually in my hospital bag when I delivered my youngest daughter last year. True story! It absorbs easily into your skin and doesn’t clog pores (because who in the world would want to deal with an ultra-heavy moisturizer just after giving birth??) .

When I use it, I like to swipe on a very light layer across my face and neck. You’ll be surprised at how quickly is absorbs and goes to work eliminating any dryness—leaving you with smooth, soft, fully hydrated skin.



4. Wipe the day away with Simple® Cleansing Facial Wipes

After a long day of moming your heart out (and, you know, all of the other things that you did on top of all the moming), you deserve a little bit of love—and so does your skin.

These Cleansing Facial Wipes from Simple Skincare are the perfect way to wipe the day away before bedtime. The fibers are super soft and gentle on the skin, while still eliminating all of the dirt, oil, and makeup that you acquire during the day.

My favorite thing about these wipes? No harsh chemicals. No artificial perfume. No artificial color. Just simple, easy-to-use wipes that leave your skin feeling soft and clean.


That’s it! Healthy, hydrated, glowy skin in a few quick steps that even the busiest mom can fit into her day.

If you’re ready to start your own super easy skincare routine at home, head on over to your local Walmart where you can pick up all four of these products at a great low price (gotta watch that budget, right?).

The products aren’t located right next to each other, but they are on the same aisle.


What do you do for your skincare routine at home? Have you tried any of these products before? Let me know in the comments!

    Great tips and these are some tried and true oldies but goodies. My mom used Ponds and Noxema over 35 years.

    I am a girl of the 70s and I loved Noxema! I used it twice a day and just loved the smell and how clean I felt!

    I used to use Noxema all the time as a teen! I almost totally forgot about them. I loved the way it made my skin feel!

    I like the St Ives apricot scrub but haven’t used it in awhile. Thanks for the reminder!

    Even though I am not a mum I will be following this routine as I know that I do not look after my skin enough. I definitely need to exfoliate x

    I love how inexpensive these options are!!!! Unfortunately, I have soy allergy so some of these are out for me. But I should def check Walmart out for some other options. I’ve never really had to do much for skin care, but two kids later I’m starting to think it’s time!

    I use the St Ives scrub as well – my face always feels so great after I use this. I will have to get my daughters to use this as well since they are starting to get some acne.

    This is awesome, I need to take better care of my skin but I don’t like regimes that take forever! (they aren’t practical either)

    Love these skin care suggestions! I have used Apricot Skin Scrub for a long time, and find it’s a great exfoliator a few times a week. I even buy it in the bulk jar and use it on my body for smooth skin and as a pre-shave exfoliant.

    Such great products!! I have been a faithful Noxzema user since I can remember. It was always in my home and just seemed like a natural product to add to my routine.

    It is so funny because I actually have all of these products in my bathroom. I love the Simple and St Ives products to maintain my glow.

    I use two of these items almost daily! I love my St Ives scrub and Simple wipes! I’ll have to look into the other items you mentioned! I’m always on the search for skincare items to try!

    I have been using Noxzema since I was a teenager. My mother has used it her whole life and she introduced me to it at that age.

    I am a busy mom myself and I LOVE using Noxzema and sometimes I use Bioré Deep charcoal cleanser for my face and it works wonders! I have used the Simply face wash but never the facial wipes. I will have to look into those! Great post!

      Isn’t Noxzema fantastic?? I haven’t used it since I was a preteen (haha) and have completely fallen back in love with it. I’ve been dying to try out a charcoal cleanser, so I may have to give it a shot if it works wonders for you. 🙂 Definitely try out the face wipes! Perfect for on-the-go.
