Quick & Affordable Skincare Routine for Moms
You will LOVE this quick and easy 2-minute easy organic skincare routine for moms! Three eco/organic products and only costs $17 a month to use ALL THREE.
I never really got into the expensive face creams or serums until after I noticed my face was looking very dry and dull (three years before I turned 40).
Also, after I had a child I noticed that my face would break out in red dots. It was awful. I changed up my cleaning products and dishsoap to be eco and then this skincare routine sealed the deal – never any red blemishes again.
At first I tried a bunch of face creams from Whole Foods. I saw a bit of a difference but it was expensive and one little jar didn’t even last 30 days. Spending $45 to $50+ every couple weeks was too high maintenance for my busy life. It meant a trip to Whole foods on the other side of town and once I’m in Whole Foods, I always buy a “few” things and end up spending $175 by the time I leave.
So I started researching to see what skincare routine would give better results, cost less, and be easier.
I came across a mom in a forum who said she uses natural, high-quality aloe vera gel and that’s it for her face with glowing results. I ended up buying some aloe gel at my local grocery store and it immediately made a difference! Brighter, smoother, younger looking skin. BUT, I noticed there were additives in the gel so I found this AMAZING organic aloe vera leaf gel on Amazon instead.
Two-Minute Quick, Easy and Affordable Mom Skincare Routine
STEP 1: Burt’s Bees Renewal Refiner Cleanser & Firming Facewash
So I do this routine only at night before bed. There’s no need to repeat in the morning which I love!
Squirt a tiny amount on your finger tips, wet with cool or warm water, and rub all over face in circular motions for 15 seconds.
Rinse with cool or warm water.
Pat face dry with clean towel.
$10.49 – 1x a day (lasts 3+ months!)
STEP 2: Organic Aloe Vera Gel
Add a squirt of organic aloe vera leaf gel and apply to face all over. If any extra apply to neck and decolletage area.
I give my son a bath while the aloe dries. It dries quickly.
This stuff is so awesome I just have to add what their website says about the benefits:
“Aloe Vera replenishes moisture and contains antioxidants, it protects and deeply hydrates your skin. We created a powerful formula and combined it with Apple and Orchid Stem Cells that rejuvenate and promote cell growth – allowing your skin to recover quickly from any damage.

STEP 3: Healing Stick
This stuff is INCREDIBLE! I originally used it for my son’s face – it got rid of his dry skin and eczema patch on one cheek. Never had a problem again. I use nightly on him after the bath.
After I apply to his cheeks, I take a tiny bit and I apply all over my T-area of face and cheeks near sides of mouth. So forehead, nose, sides of mouth (cheek area) and chin. It doesn’t make my pillow greasy at all!
Usually $39 but on SALE for $25. I use on myself and my son (Lasts 3+ months!)
I love this routine and my skin has never looked better! It’s perfect for busy moms who want easy maintenance while using organic products that have no toxins. Follow @thelittlemonkeycompany on Instagram and let us know how you liked this 2-minute skincare routine for moms – easy and affordable!
