Are you a girl on the run, and always strapped for time? Or perhaps you are just plain lazy? Let’s face it, most of us are a combination of the two and hardly have the luxury of spending hours on prepping and preening. The good news is that the beauty industry is loaded with time-saving, highly efficient products.
Today I present to you my top 5 beauty picks for very lazy (busy) girls.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque
Replenish on lost moisture while you sleep! Forgo the need to watch the clock tick by as you wait to wash off a face mask, this ingenious product replaces your regular night cream, and works its magic all night long. Just rinse off when you wake, and enjoy soft, supple, well-hydrated skin. For more details on this product, click on the image below:
Lush Ro’s Argan Body Conditioner
You’ve been using hair conditioner all your life, why not use one for the skin? Loaded with the goodness of Argan Oil and packed with the sweet scent of roses, this highly moisturizing wonder product by Lush leaves the skin so beautifully hydrated, that you can opt to skip the body lotion once you’ve left the shower. Simply massage into wet skin and rinse off. For more information on this product, click on image below:
Gosh BB Cream
A foundation, primer and moisturizer all in one? And it even has a built-in SPF of 15, gosh! Best of all this multi-tasking BB cream is paraban and cruelty free. I use it over the Gosh Primer+ and dust it off with the Gosh Prime ‘n Set powder. If you are in a real hurry, use this lovely BB Cream all by itself. It gives you the coverage of a light foundation, and the product is fluid enough to blend in with your finger tips sans any makeup sponges.
Dry shampoos are a God-send for lazy/busy girls. And its not a good idea to wash your tresses every day anyway (washing daily strips the hair of its natural oils, and you end up with a dry, frizzy mess).
There is a plethora of options out there when it comes to dry shampoos. One of my personal favorites is the Sunsilk range as it has a dry shampoo for specific hair concerns. I use the one for colour-treated hair. Click image below for details.
Essentially a soft water with suspended ‘micelles’ (oil molecules) that work as a cleansing agent to remove the dirt and grime of the face, Micellar Water has long been a beauty secret among Parisian women.
One sweep, and a good quality Micellar Water removes even the most stubborn of makeup, and best of all, you don’t need to follow up with a rinse.
I particularly like the Sephora Triple Action Cleansing Water. This fast-acting, no rinse micellar water removes everything from eye makeup to foundation in one easy swipe, and also contains calendula extract for soothing the skin, making it ideal for even the most sensitive of skin-types.
So these are my 5 must-have, time saving beauty must-haves. What are yours?
