The Importance of a Beauty Ritual When You’re a Busy Mum

This post has been written in collaboration with Jurlique

When I was pregnant with Phoebe during Christmas 2013, my mum-in-law from South Australia sent me a stunning Jurlique cleansing pack for Christmas. She also sent a Jurlique baby products pack for my bub-to-be, Phoebe.

Since becoming 30, I have been more adamant about using products on my skin that I love.

The products I love are ones that smell fabulous (I’m old school and love rose and lavender) as they lift up my mood – and who doesn’t want to smell like flowers?! The products must also do what they say by moisturizing my skin and keeping it hydrated and looking youthful.

I remember using my Jurlique products and my skin not only felt amazing, it smelt pretty good too. I didn’t want the bottles to run out. But sadly they did.

So I did what any desperate mother did and used some of the baby products on myself too.

Since that encounter with Jurlique, it’s been one of my go-to-brands for skincare. It’s farm is also located in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia.

One thing I wish I could afford to do more for my skin is get consistent facials. But time and money prevent me from doing so.

Jurlique recognise this need for women and have created their own facial you can do at home called the Jurlique Ritual.

Sigourney Cantelo from Beauticate shares what the Jurlique Ritual entails. The video is quite calming to watch and I can almost feel myself relax as I watch her explain what each product does. You almost feel like you’re getting the calming effects of a facial – but without anyone touching your face!

I’ve noticed now that I’m in my thirties, my skin needs a bit more than just a moisturizer to stay hydrated. I very much have a cleansing, misting and moisturizing ritual, but I know I can go one better and add a serum and eye cream to ensure my skin is getting the best hydration.

And that’s what this video from Jurlique is all about. It’s about finding your own ritual that works for you. We can’t always spend half an hour on our faces each day when we’re busy mums, but we can take time out each week to give ourselves a facial.

Do you have a beauty ritual you live by? What has to be in a beauty product before you purchase it?

  • I love that you used Phoebe’s products. Look, I’m absolutely in love with Clarins multi-active day cream and have been using it for years. I love the scent and how it makes my skin feel, but I am on the hunt for a good cruelty free and vegan moisturiser. Time to make the change. #teamIBOT

  • I completely agree. Since having kids, my skin has completely changed too. It has gone from being oily to quite dry and so I’ve completely changed my regimen. It includes a lot of exfoliation, moisutrising and face masks. I also get microdermabrasion done regularly and have found that’s helped heaps. I’m really big on using organic and plant derived products.

  • It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who uses baby products! I’ve never used Jurlique before but have heard that they are fab. I’ve got yucky combination of oily/dry skin and over the past few years I’ve become much better at sticking to a routine to help keep in looking semi decent!

  • I have definitely put more effort into my skin since turning 30. It’s a super quick routine – because on the eve of three, three and under – it needs to be! But it is something that I am focusing on.

  • Oh I hear you Shari. I have little time to faff about with my three, but I do like to put in a bit of extra effort due to my age. x

  • LOL. You always look good. I don’t know what you’re talking about. x

  • Good on you getting the microdermabrasion done. I used to get that done before kids but haven’t done it since. I should though!

  • Yes, I couldn’t not use Phoebe’s products. I loved them so much!
