The One Minute Face

What if I told you, you could put your “face” on and be ready to head out the door in a minute or less? Would you believe me? You can!

Before I had my daughter, I had all this free time to do fun stuff like put on make up. I had a morning routine, and a night routine. I could casually wake up, spend as much time as I wanted sipping my coffee and put on my makeup how ever I felt that day. Then, at night, I could relax and rest with a warm wash rag on my face to cleans my pores of all the makeup to avoid blemishes. And I could tinker with lotions and potions to keep my face looking healthy and fresh. It was like having a spa treatment everyday. Ahhhhhhh…………

Now, I’m lucky if I get to bed at decent hour in order to get up early enough to put on clothes that don’t make me look like a clown. I’m usually running around like a headless chicken to make it out the door on time. Makeup? HA! And forget about the night time routine. I have just enough energy after the kiddo goes to bed to rinse out dirty diapers, wash dishes and hit the hay. My how things have changed!

But I can still leave my house looking fresh and feeling confident……..without all the added prep time. And you can too, with clear makeup. Really. It’s called The Present, because that’s exactly what it is. A little present for you, mom, in a tube.

This has to be the best kept beauty secret in the world. If you don’t have The Present in your life, get it. NOW! Go online, and have it overnighted to you. Or run to your local Sephora and buy 6 tubes of it. You can thank me later.

You’re probably wondering what’s so great about it. This stuff is amazing. It’s kind of like a thick lotion, but not heavy and oily. Just a little pea sized drop of this stuff, fixes your whole face up in the time it takes to smear it on. If you have any redness, it will be calmed within minutes of putting The Present on. Fine lines and light wrinkles are smoothed away. It also helps to seal out harsh oxidants that hang out in the environment. Think smog, smoke, dirt, all the yucky stuff. It also fights blemishes and evens out combination, oily, or dry skin (hello, we all fall into one of those categories). It’s light weight, which means you won’t feel it hanging around on your face. You will notice that your skin feels naturally smoother. This stuff is basically a super hero for the busy mom who wants to look awesome without actually putting on makeup!

The Present also doubles as a primer for foundation. It will smooth your skin to make a nice canvas for laying down your makeup, and you will use less foundation too! Just apply a very small amount, and then wait for it to absorb and set for at least two minutes. You will notice the difference, especially if you have never tried primer before. It actually holds your makeup in place, even in high humidity! It also seals in any other pre-treatments you may have done before hand, and keeps makeup out of your pores.

So if you don’t have time to stand in front of the mirror every morning and put makeup on, try The Present. It won’t hide major blemishes or completely erase deep wrinkles, not gonna lie about that. But it will smooth your skin out, and give you that healthy, fresh, “I’m totally awesome, I got 8 hours of sleep, and I got up early too” look that all of us moms want! What’s better than that (besides actually getting the 8 hours of sleep)?
