We pick the brains of some of the most talented, stylish, and busy moms we know to find out what they do (and buy) to make their lives work.
Jessica Bennett is a Director of Advertising Sales over here at Scary Mommy. As a mother of two boys, one with Down syndrome, she’s a huge advocate for inclusion and awareness. What makes her product picks so special? She’s a travel, beauty, and fashion buff who lived in Hong Kong for six and a half years. Here are her recommendations for looking great, feeling great, and sleeping great.
“This stuff is amazing and I don’t know how everyone doesn’t know about it. It is great for breaking in new shoes or the ones that always just rub your little pinky toe the wrong way. Goes on like deodorant and it is clear. Rub it on and kiss blisters good bye. I keep a spare in my office drawer!”
This is an Australian product that is now available in the States. I was introduced to it in Hong Kong. It’s similar to Moracccan oil. Put it on dry hair to manage frizz or finish a polished look to keep flyaways at bay. Great packaging for traveling! Smells amazing!”
“Here’s another great product that was introduced to me by my Australian friends in Hong Kong. I keep a tube in my purse all the time. It’s super multi-purpose- treats bug bites, diaper rash, dry cuticles, dry lips, burns, you name it. I also really like the way it smells.”
“There are a ton of these on the market but if you want the best, get this one. It will last forever. (I literally still have the one from my freshman year of college!) Great for drowning out noise in the kids bedrooms or snoring husbands in your own.”
“People always compliment me on this watch. They think it is a Rolex. It is basically poor man’s Rolex!”
“These are way cheaper than Nespresso and high quality!”
“This forehead thermometer has the option to do ear reading temps. Great price point and super fast/easy to use on the little ones.”
“This is great for hair regrowth after having a baby, plus it has lots of other benefits”:
“This is literally the world’s best water-proof mascara.”
“Not unique to Amazon or Target, but this is hands down the best fast dry top coat!!!!”
“One of my go-to’s for birthday presents. Unisex and unique! My son recently brought his on the plane and it was great entertainment. Also it says it’s not machine washable but it totally is (on cold cycle)!”
