Mothers often wear many hats. From caregiver to working professional, there’s no limit to what a mom can do. And while this can be rewarding, it doesn’t leave much room for mothers to make time for themselves. According to Maven Clinic, the number of working mothers experiencing burnout is increasing, and when you factor in a year dealing with a pandemic, online schooling, and caring for children and/or an aging parent, it doesn’t help moms who were already struggling to pencil in some me time. But thanks to CVS, moms everywhere can have the support they may need to help prioritize their physical and mental wellbeing.
As part of its Women’s Wellness promotion, the retail company is offering $10 in ExtraBucks Rewards when you spend $30 on select women’s health products, ranging from multivitamins and healthy snacks to a range of self-care products that’ll help moms squeeze in some much-needed pampering. Plus, with a variety of health, wellness and other services such as general medical exams, eyelash lengthening consultations and screenings provided by the CVS MinuteClinic, the retail company also makes for an ideal health destination for overwhelmed moms.
And if you’re not sure where to start when it comes to wellness support and self-care products that’s okay. We’ve rounded up some of CVS’s popular items — from supplements to shampoos — guaranteed to help moms find a well-deserved moment of joy.

At the end of a long day, there’s nothing better than jumping in a warm shower and treating yourself to a sweet-smelling shampoo that can add shine and bounce to your curls. For a lot of moms, a shower may be the only free time they get so make it extra special with SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl and Shine Shampoo. Afterward you’ll feel refreshed and your hair will look amazing.
For all the moms who have been stressed out lately, this may be the product for you. The L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum is an anti-aging serum that helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles (I personally developed a few of those during the pandemic). By incorporating this product into your skin-care routine, you’re taking the time to treat you.
As we head into summer, this product is one you’ll definitely want to purchase and get a lot of use out of.

The Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Lotion is also a great option for moms who plan on spending some fun in the sun this summer. And who knows — maybe purchasing more sunscreen will encourage you to book that long-awaited vacation you’ve been dying to go on because let’s face it, you deserve it!
