So let’s speak honestly here – when is the last time you slathered lotion on yourself after a shower in the morning? Do you even have time? Anyone raising their hands? Yeah, me neither. If I am lucky enough to grab a shower before packing my son’s lunch and then taking him to school I am doing it at the speed of light. †The key to existing without alligator skin is to find some kind of body wash that has multi-tasking Mamas in mind.

BlogHer sent me Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash to try out. It comes with a giant label on the bottle proclaiming “more than a jar of moisturizer in every bottle.” Seriously. A jar. So as I am scrubbing awake in the shower I leap out like a smooth and clean supermom without having to take an extra step. Honestly – who has TIME for an extra step? The lather is quick and the fragrance is soft and light.

Another great thing? Olay Ultra Moisture Body Wash doubles as a fantastic shaving cream. See? More multi-tasking love from Olay. I’ve used this body wash for the last week and my skin is noticeably smoother. This is a season where the weather changes at the drop of a hat and gusty winds can strip all moisture away from your skin. I’m also a mom to a toddler that is often fighting the sniffles, so hand washing is done all day – nonstop. Usually I look down at my hands and arms at the end of the day and cringe at the cracks – but not this week. This week my skin has been much, much smoother. It feels like a reward at the beginning of my day to use something so nourishing.

This stuff is now a small part of my new routine.

What about you? Are you making “me time” a priority these days? Are you finding ways to multi-task so that you have more moments without scrambling?
