Tear-Free Tub Time with SoCozy

Happy Monday, friends!

We're back from a little blogging break and let me just say...that was such a nice little respite! I loved stepping back from a few responsibilities to focus on the ones that really matter: these two little ones!

We have been playing outside nonstop which means lots more baths around our house. Lately, it's been a real struggle. Between a busy one year old who doesn't like to be held still and a bossy toddler that doesn't like to do anything (!), getting them clean can be a real fight. I am so thankful we had the opportunity to try out SoCozy's newest line of sensitive and nontoxic products available at Target, called Hush!

The Hush line currently has 4 products: 2-in-1 Shampoo & Conditioner, Styling Foam, Leave-In Detangler, and Scalp Serum.

My kids usually dread their shampoo rinse, but with the Hush 2-in-1, there were no tears and only one round of rinsing which made everyone happy! I love that it was gentle enough to use on both my toddler and my baby. We also loved the detangler for Lucy's curly locks. For once, she didn't fight me when I combed her hair! Mamas of curly-haired cuties, I know you feel me!

As for the styling foam and scalp serum, we honestly just don't have a lot of use for those. Neither of my kids has hair that particularly needs the extra hold from a styling product and since neither of them were battling an irritated scalp, we didn't see much change using the serum. I think it's great to have on hand in case something does irritate things later on, but mostly just recommend the shampoo and the detangler!

These products are available at some Target locations, but not all. They are available on Target's website though, so don't forget to use eBates to earn cash back on your purchase! (You can use my referral code to start earning on all your online purchases!) And that's before we count your RedCard savings! ;)

What shampoo are you using on your little one? Is it gentle and nontoxic? My littles are loving bath time now that it's tear-free for them!

Mom-Hack: How to Banish Tired Eyes for Good!

*This post has been sponsored by VII Code. As always, all opinions are my own. Some links are affiliate.*

How many of you mamas got a full 8 hours last night? Did you wake up with dark circles, bags, or general puffiness most mornings? What if I told you you could ditch the dark circles overnight? And by overnight, I mean, literally while you sleep!

These gel-like oxygen eye masks by VII Code are saving my tired eyes every morning. I’ve tried many sheet masks and overnight creams but never noticed a drastic difference the next day. With these masks, I wake up looking well-rested and refreshed, not puffy and drained, even when I’ve gotten up multiple times during the night with kids. The gel texture is a little strange at first, but it has a lovely cooling sensation that is so refreshing and you can really feel it working.

VII Code Oxygen EyeMasks are designed to work overnight to reduce dark circles, puffiness, and wrinkles. I use them about two to three days per week and have noticed a huge difference in the skin under my eyes. Not only does it look brighter and feel softer, but I’ve noticed a tightening effect as though it really is working that anti-aging magic (and I’m only 22, so no wrinkles here yet!). A full course of treatment is three boxes or 18 pairs of masks. Depending on your sleeping position, the masks can sometimes shift and peel at the sides overnight, but I haven't had many issues and still see the full effects in the morning!

Bottom line: Tired moms are going to love these masks. Even if you don't use them as a full anti-aging treatment, you’ll love pampering yourself with these gorgeous masks right before bed and waking up to bright eyes, feeling ready to take on the day. I’ve noticed a drastic reduction in puffiness in the mornings since starting and only use them a couple of times a week. I think this is the end of the “mombie” struggle! Just add coffee ;)

Cobalt + Coral Kimono

How cute is this Lularoe Monroe kimono? I'm loving this fun fringe and flirty colors! It's so lightweight and perfect for spring! I can totally see myself wearing this with a coral tank and cutoffs or even as a swim cover!

I love how flowy it is while still draping nicely without looking like a sheet. As if Lularoe needed any more reason to take my I right?
