    6 Must-Have Beauty Items Under $10 For People Who Hate Getting Ready

    I see your lightning-fast morning routine and raise it a super-cheap one!

    There are certain things that I, as a mom of four boys under 8 years old, have given up on: wearing white, using the bathroom alone, and having a presentable apartment, to name a few. But giving up my beauty products? Not one of those things. If anything, I rely on them now more than ever. I need all the things that save me time and money and make me look a little less a mombie, a little more...some semblance of a pulled-together human.

    I’ve tried my fair share of products and landed on the following six that never seem to fail me, no matter how tired I am or how little time I have to get ready. (Seriously, my morning routine clocks in at about two minutes with these. I dare you to time me!)

    1. Nivea In-Shower Nourishing Body Lotion, so you can moisturize before you've even stepped outta the tub.

    2. Maybelline The Falsies Push-Up Drama Mascara, for length, lift, and volume in seconds.

    3. Suave Professionals Refresh & Revive Dry Shampoo, because freshly washed hair isn't always an option but fresh-smelling hair is.

    4. Physicians Formula Concealer Twins Cream Concealer, which comes with two hues to brighten up under-eye circles and work its magic wherever else you want it to.

    5. Maybelline Brow Drama Pro Eyebrow Palette, for a wax-and-powder combo with precise application.

    6. Burt’s Bees Pink Grapefruit Facial Towelettes, because you deserve to clean your face, remove your makeup, and smell like a fresh-picked grapefruit all at the same damn time.
