Why these beauty kits are saving my life

You know when you see an article about women “having it all” and you laugh maniacally to yourself about how impossible that concept seems because between work, life, chores and your dog you barely have the time or mental energy to remember to brush your hair?? Uh yeah…me neither. For me beauty routines and rituals are the first thing off the list when I’m stressed and overworked. If I can remember to do more than cleanse and moisturize, it’s a miracle.

Times like this I really want one of those daily reminder pill cases but full of detoxifying masks and brightening serums. But since those don’t exist yet, I have been making due with foolproof beauty kits — pre-assembled, stress-free boxes that help take the hassle and guess work out of a routine. The Shiseido Ibuki kit has been a true lifesaver, condensing my routine down to cleanse/tone/moisturize and giving me the perfect excuse to be lazy while still being good to my skin. The Softening Concentrate is a standout toner that gives a glow to your face without stripping moisture. And as a quickie indulgence I’ve also been using Dr. Hauschka’s Firming Mask which uses rose marshmallow and pansy to fight wrinkles and rejuvenate stressed out/tired skin quickly. Let’s just say lately I’ve been indulging in this mask a lot! How do you fight the urge to give up all skincare routines when you’re overworked and crunched for time? Do you have a magic skin pill box I can borrow?
