Has motherhood changed your beauty routine?


Has motherhood changed your beauty routine?


Has your beauty regime changed or stayed constant since adding kids to the mix? I think that most busy moms would agree that once we have made it through dinner time, bath time and bedtime routine (add in lunch packing for those with older kids), the beauty regimes of our pre-kids days seem laughable. Or maybe you were always a soap and water type minimalist gal?


The nightly ritual of washing off my makeup and prepping my skin for bedtime has been something I’ve done since middle school. The products may have started off basic and evolved, but it’s the ritual of the nightly routine that I’ve always loved. With two kids now, my nightly routine has become a tiny moment carved out for myself at the end of a busy day.


I recently tried The Green Beaver Company’s Sensitive Aloe Face Care line (Gel Cleanser, Day Cream and Exfoliant). These 100% Natural made in Canada products are soothing and gentle enough for sensitive and even acne-prone skin. Ingredients like aloe, chamomile, and green tea help to fight redness and irritation so they’re formulated for even the most sensitive of skins.


I really enjoy an aromatic and refreshing cleanser as well as exfoliant as part of my routine. The Green Beaver Company’s Gel Cleanser and Exfoliant did not disappoint! Refreshing but gentle, the foaming gel cleanser gently dissolves excess oils while also helping to unclog pores. Free of artificial fragrances, grapefruit and lemon peel oils in the cleanser add an amazing fresh aroma while washing away impurities. The exfoliant uses bamboo fibres as a delicate fine-grain scrub particle to remove dead skin and also includes purifying grapefruit oil to dissolve oils without stripping the skin.


The Green Beaver Day Cream is a light but nourishing formula which protects skin and leaves it soft and smooth. The antioxidant properties of green tea extract and the moisturizing benefits of grapeseed, sunflower and olive fruit oil work together to create a formula that is lightweight but packs a pretty substantial punch in terms of hydration and balancing properties. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave behind any greasy residue on the skin (perfect for use as a day cream under makeup).


Making time for ourselves at the end of a busy day can be as simple as enjoying those few minutes to wash away the day – make sure you’re doing it with products that you love and can feel good about! The Green Beaver Company has been inspiring a more natural way of life in a more sustainable world since 2002. Canadian, cruelty-free, vegan and biodegradable – these are products that you can feel good about using
