I was compensated for this shop by Collective Bias, Inc. on behalf of Neutrogena for this #NewNeutrogena campaign #AD #Collectivebias. All opinions are mine alone.
We all know that time is something that can’t be replaced, right? And with that comes sleep ha. You can’t replace precious time to sleep. Whether you are a new momma like me, going to school, working, etc. sleeping time is precious. I recently shared on Instagram that I was looking for some help. Help with finding some products to cleanse my face before bed that weren’t going to take over my precious sleeping time. I am awful and have never been one to take off my makeup… GASP! I know. It is so awful and I know I am going to regret it if I don’t do something soon. I am going to have wrinkles, age spots, and everything else that comes without taking care of your skin. I want the best of both worlds, I don’t want to lose my precious sleep time (trust me, it is even more precious when you have a new baby…) but I also don’t want yucky skin when I am older. Well friends, I have found the perfect solution. A 5 minute night face routine.
5 minutes isn’t too much sleep to lose, let’s be honest, we all know that even 30 seconds is too much to lose. Those 30 seconds can feel like 3 hours! I do feel like I can spare those 5 minutes though. I am so excited to share these fun new Neutrogena products that I found on a Target mommy outing that was much needed. We all know that Target is our secret escape and you leave with 25 items that you didn’t even walk in for. I tend to spend my time at the cosmetics, dollar bins (duh!) and the clearance racks. Zach refuses to go with me because he knows I can spend days upon days in my happy place called Target. Oh and have you heard of their Cartwheel app? Ya, you can thank me later for that one. That is how I found these Neutrogena products!
So, girls make me a promise, if you don’t take your make up off or wash your face like me, try this 5 minute routine. I promise it will be 5 minutes quicker when putting your mascara on in the morning because you won’t be fighting the clumps, or 5 minutes faster in your eye shadow because you won’t be trying to blend yesterdays left overs into your crease.

Take off all that worn off makeup that you put on this morning. I love to use the Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes because, first they smell amazing, second I know they are products that are good for my face, and third, I hate trying to scrub my eye makeup off with cleanser. That stuff stings like crazy when you get it in your eyes and I am no face washing master!

Cleanse with your favorite cleanser. If I am feeling extra tired or lazy I skip this step… Terrible I know, but as long as I do steps 1 and 3 I feel like I can get by sometimes. Plus once again cleanser gets in your eyes and that is just no fun for anyone!

If there is one thing that I notice the biggest difference with it is moisturizing. This is the step that I always make sure that I do. I have been on the hunt for a moisturizer that isn’t oily and really gives my face the hydration that I want. I found this Hydro Boost Water Gel and I am seriously in love with it. I made Zach try it out that night. It is so simple to rub in, doesn’t take very much, and makes me feel like my face has just soaked up a ton of water. I have only been using this at night and my face still feels moisturized all day the next day. This Hydro Boost Water Gel is a game changer girls. I’m telling you, if you try one product make it this one.

Let’s all hope that we are all teeth brushers right? There is just something about going to bed with clean teeth if you ask me.
5 – S N U G G L E I N Y O U R H A P P Y B E D
See! You used 5 minutes before bed so productively and your face and teeth will thank you for years to come! If your like me and sometimes it just doesn’t seem worth it, just tell yourself that one day you will be a hot grandma with pearly whites and amazing skin that everyone will be asking for your secrets!
