Morning Routine Essentials:

  1. Iron Supplement
  2. Vitamins
  3. Coconut Oil
  4. Ice Water with Lemon
  5. Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean
  6. Soniclear Petite by Micheal Todd Beauty
  7. Image Vital C Face Moisturizer

1. Slow Release Iron

When I had my blood checked for gestational diabetes at the doctor they told me my iron was low. My doctor prescribed me slow release Iron and told me to take it with a glass of orange juice. I was super scared to take it because iron typically makes me sick to my stomach. I do take this vitamin at night most of the time after dinner before bed. I am sure you are wondering why I put this in my morning routine. Well since I started taking iron supplements I have had a ton of energy and I have noticed that it has been really easy for me to wake up in the morning. I have definitely noticed a change in my energy level and I take it every day now faithfully. Please note that I am not a doctor and I am not suggesting or prescribing you anything (I am just letting you know what works for me). Talk to you doctor before taking any supplements or vitamins.

2. Vitamins

I am on a women’s one a day prenatal vitamin and boy does it do wonder to your hair, skin, and nails. It is one of the greatest things about pregnancy. It has really been great for my skin. Even when I am not pregnant I take women’s one a day gummies and they help my hair and skin so much.

3.  Coconut Oil 

I cannot get over the organic benefits of coconut oil. Not only is it a really cheap and affordable beauty product but it’s also natural which is awesome. I use coconut oil to rub on my eyelashes every morning to help my natural lashes grow and to remove any excess makeup that I missed the night before. I also use it on my lips for a chapstick. It’s a great essential for my morning routine.


4.Water with Lemon 

Your body has gone all night without anything to drink. Drinking lemon water in the morning is a great detox and it helps aid healthy digestion. I know, I know, it’s hard to not want your first sip to be coffee. Lemon water also helps your immune system with the vitamin c and it helps your skin glow. It can also help you keep a healthy weight. Wow ladies… is there any reason you shouldn’t drink lemon water? lol


5. Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean 

  • It’s a Cleanser/ Toner/ Makeup Remover- perfect for moms/ girls that are too busy to spend a ton of time on skincare
  • Perfect for all Skintypes
  • Massage into Dry Skin.
  • I use this with the Soniclear Petite by Micheal Todd Beauty. link to shop:

6. Soniclear Petite by Micheal Todd Beauty 

  • It strips away dead skin cells, makeup, dirt, and oil 6x better than hands alone.
    • I definitely agree. I had dead skin on my chin and around my nose and it’s not there anymore.
    • I use this after I use a makeup remover wipe and I see makeup come off in the brush.
    • It cleared up a ton of my blackheads all over my chin and nose.
  • Make sure you wash your brush head with an antibacterial soap after every use.  My friend Stephanie gave me that tips! Thank you Steph!

  • Its cordless and waterproof.
  • This post is sponsored by Micheal Todd Beauty.

  • I put this on before my makeup and primer every morning.

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Mask

Quick Review

  • Price:
    • $22 for one mask
    • A pack of 4 for $40 ($10 each)
    • Click here to shop this mask at Nordstrom.
  • Time:
    • You need to wear the mask for at least 10 minutes
    • Preferably at night time when all your makeup is off and before you go to bed.
  • Results:
    • This mask leaves your skin very soft to the touch and completely hydrated.
    • The foil heats up the product and you can feel a tingle.
    • I have red patches on my skin and they were gone the next day.
    • People noticed that my skin actually glowed.
  • Skin Type:
    • This mask in my personal opinion is great for dry or normal skin. I really do not think someone with oily skin would benefit as much.
    • This mask also helps with wrinkles. Think of your face as layers and it is important to hydrate and preserve your top layers. This is what this mask does.
  • Would I purchase this mask?
    • I would buy a pack of 4 of the these masks and wear them at least once a month.


Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask Detailed Review

So this beauty mask or as my husband calls it, iron man mask, looks a little ridiculous but boy does it work. When I first put on the mask it was so cold but after 3 minutes I could feel my skin heating up. The foil helps to penetrate the product into the skin so it can get past the first layers. You can actually feel a tingling feeling that is kinda weird at first. I put on the mask and then took an awesome bubble bath. When I took the mask off, I rubbed all the product into the skin. My skin felt so soft and hydrated and I had several dry patches around my nose and chin that were gone.

I would definitely pay for this mask at least once a month to help with wrinkles and to help give my face great hydration. This mask is a little pricey but it will give you a glow the next day. You can see noticeable results for spending $20. However, I would not want to spend more then $20 a month on this product.

I hope you enjoyed this honest review of the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask (Say that 10 times fast haha). My husband thought it was hilarious and my 3 year old son Grayson told me he didn’t like it.
