Welcome to Club Mom! Here’s your goodie bag. It’s filled with under-eye circles, a few fine lines you never noticed before, and a sticker for your back that says “Tell me I look tired. I love that!”
Ok, I’m kidding.
Kids have nothing to do with it. That’s just part of adulthood, I guess.
It’s OK, my friend. There’s comfort in numbers, and we’re all feeling and looking a little extra tired these days. Luckily, there are plenty of products out there to help. And some of them cost less than that (also very necessary) latte. I’ve scoured the internet for the best beauty products under $5* that will help you look like you actually got a full night’s sleep—even if you were awake nursing a baby or staring at the ceiling flipping through your “what to worry about” Rolodex.
From outrageously inexpensive (but awesome) mascaras to soothing eye masks that banish the blue in less than ten minutes, tired mamas need these cheap beauty products in their bathroom STAT.
*One product is just a hair over but given that everything costs a bazillion dollars these days, I made an exception.
