Freshen Up Your Routine This Spring With These Beauty Products

After entering motherhood, caring for your skin and keeping to a beauty routine can be tough when your main focus is caring for your little ones. Products that you once used to complete lengthy skincare rituals seem impractical and time-consuming. Instead, you have five magical minutes of alone-time in the bathroom and you better make it worthwhile.

From self-tanner that doubles as a color corrector to the deodorizing wipes you need when there's no time to shower, we've rounded up key-players for your vanity from Sephora, Ulta and Dermstore that'll keep you feeling put together while still getting your little troops to school on time.

When There's No Time To Shower: Yuni Beauty Shower Sheets

When the only time you have to refresh is waiting in the carpool line, these super-sized wipes are a no-brainer to clean up. They have natural antibacterial and deodorizing agents built in and a minty smell (that won't remind you of rubbing alcohol). Just maybe save wiping your underarms with the sheets to the confines of your home. ($15; amazon.com)

When You're Running on 3 Hours of Sleep: Lancome DÉFINICILS High Definition Mascara

Having a newborn can be the most precious thing in the world, but it definitely means you'll be waking up sleep deprived most mornings.

Lancome's Définicils High Definition Mascara is great for a simple daytime look with long lashes without clumps or any (addition) darkness falling under your eyes. Plus, it's easy to wash off when you're ready for bed. Pro tip: It wouldn't hurt to have some mentholated eye drops on hand on tired days too—this is a mascara wand not magic, people! It sure does help, though. ($28; sephora.com)
