I know, I know, self-care isn’t just about products, it can be exercise, photography, a walk to the mailbox without your kids. Today I am going to focus on specific products that I like to use daily to take care of myself, which also takes care of my family. We don’t like when I turn into momzilla.
These are NOT in any specific order, because I love them all.
- Stress away and Orange essential oils
Stress Away smells like lime, with a little bit of vanilla, but also includes Copaiba, lavender, and Cedarwood, which all have great benefits.
Diffuse them or put them in a roller for instant stress relief, and stress relief on the go, at least it helps my stress, and the orange smell makes me extra happy! I usually diffuse these two first thing in the morning, when I know I didn’t get enough sleep, and may be a little extra irritable, or when my kids are going to make me go a little cray cray. A little calm to my storm. Reminds me to take a breather.
I also use these when I am close to hitting a goal, or deadline, last minute, cause ya know…PROCRASTINATOR… roll a little on my wrist while I sit in the office, so I can continue to smell the good juice.
REAL VALUE: Confidence knowing you and/or your house is smelling yummy. If you want to look at some oils for yourself, take a look here.
2. Rodan + Fields Recharge Detox Face Mask
This Recharge mask has charcoal to help draw out your skins impurities and environmental pollutants. Mango Seed Butter, Coconut Oil and Avocado Oils provide moisture replenishment, and fatty acids for softer skin, while Volcanic Sand exfoliates, so you have a radiant complexion.
Who doesn’t love to put on a facemask, grab a beverage of choice, and sit in a bubble bath? I could really go for that right now! I absolutely love the instant results this mask gives me, and how my skin FEELS when I wash it off.
REAL VALUE: Confidence in knowing that you are using high end face masks that are actually improving your skin in some way. Unfortunately, this mask is out of stock right now, but there are other face masks that are just as good. Check them out here.

3. Raw Sugar Healing Power Hair Mask
Avocado Oil, Banana Oil, coconut milk, and Agave nutrients. This stuff makes my dry brittle fine hair COME TO LIFE y’all. I use this once or twice a week, and it keeps my hair feeling good, every day.
REAL VALUE: Confidence in knowing your hair is nourished and easy to brush. Check it out for yourself here.
4. Honest Company Conditioning Detangler
Argan oil, jojoba protein, shea butter and quinoa extracts.
Remember when I said I have dry, brittle, extra fine hair? Yeah, I have a lot of ”go to” hair care products. This one I haven’t used in a while because it went missing, but I really do believe since I have been using it again, its helped when brushing, and my postpartum hair loss. I’m not saying it’s a cure, but it isn’t pulling my hair out as easy as just a brush was before.
REAL VALUE: Confidence in knowing you are using a more natural product, that is good for you, and the littles in your life. Look at it here.
5. Rodan + Fields Micro-dermabrasion Paste
Good for dry, oily, or combo skin. It is a salt and sugar based scrub that helps wash away dull and dead skin cells. It encourages brighter and smoother skin after just one time of using it. This can be used on your whole body! I use it on my legs before shaving, on my face about three times a week, and on my “chicken skin” on the back of my arms.
Can’t beat this exfoliator.
REAL VALUE: Confidence in knowing your skin is absorbing other skin product better and easier, when exfoliating the dead skin away, resulting in healthier skin. Check it out here.

6. Thieves Essential Oil and Cleaning Products
This has lemon, clove, cinnamon smell, with some others in there too. This oils puts a boost to your immune system, along with all the other Thieves products. I cannot recommend anything and everything Thieves enough. This specific one I will also add a drop to my tea when feeling a little under the weather.
REAL VALUE: Confidence in knowing you are using natural products that are safe for you and the animals/children in your home. Find it here.
7. Bath and Body Works Orange Ginger Body Cream
Honestly, I just LOVE the way this one smells. It may not be as natural as most of the products I use, but I cannot get past the smell. The body wash, lotion, apparently there is even a candle online, SO GOOD. It is supposed to give you a little boost in energy, and we all know I could use that, and I’m sure you could too.
REAL VALUE: Confidence in knowing you smell BOMB. Browse the yummy smelling options here.
8. Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anit-Frizz Serum
YES PLEASE. Again, everything that I have previously said about my hair, then add some frizz! I love adding this in to my damp hair before I blow dry, to keep the frizz down a little, and give it a little more shine. Sometimes I add it to my hair at night, throw it up in a bun, and let all the oil soak in. It has Argan Oil in it, that helps with the dry frizz.
REAL VALUE: Confidence in knowing you hair won’t turn into a frizzy mess 😉 Check it out here.
9. Rodan + Fields Active Hydration Serum
Wowowowow. If I could use just ONE skincare product for the rest of my life it would be this. Perfect for combination skin, as it will balance oil and dryness. Its oil-free, and raises your skins hydration by 200%, WHAT?! It also helps your skin receive products that are applied after BETTER.
REAL VALUE, Confidence in knowing you will have hydrated, younger looking AND younger acting skin. Check it out here.

10. Nespresso Coffee
BECAUSE WHY NOT. Coffee is self-care in my book. Coffee is always there for you. Iced, blended, hot, you name it, you got it. Do I need to say more?
REAL VALUE: Confidence in knowing you can enjoy a nice yummy cup of coffee every day. Get yourself a Nespresso here.
Thats it!! These are just self-care products I love. There will be plenty more on self-care later! Tell me your favorite products in the comments, I love trying new stuff!
Stay Confident <3
