Desk Side Beauty Essentials

desk side beauty products

If like me, you spend most of the day glued to your desk in front of the computer churning out work, then desk side beauty essentials are a must. I can never be without a good set of products to not only keep me looking refreshed (for those unexpected visits *inserts winky eye emoji*), but also to hydrate my skin, especially when the air conditioning/central heating is on full blast. In today’s post, i I have rounded up my current desk side beauty essentials and trust me, there are some good un’s in there.

I’ll start off with the skin stuff and I’m sure you’ll all agree that every desk needs a good hand cream. I currently have Le Couvent Des Minimes Gardener’s Hand Healer (*) in my draw, it’s a lightweight cream with amazing moisturising properties. My hand always feel super soft after using this and it really protects my skin against the cold. I also keep a face cream handy, sometimes I get dry patches on my skin due to weather change and the Clarins Multi-Active Day Cream is perfect for hydration as well as general use. Last on the skin menu is a new addition, I have heard a lot of Paw Paw balm and recently picked up the Dr Paw Paw Multi-Purpose Soothing Balm. It’s a really nice alternative to the my usual Vaseline as it contains fermented Paw Paw (Papaya) and is super soothing on my skin. I use it for my lips, dry parts on my body as well as the ends of my hair, it’s one of the best multi-purpose balms that I’ve tried and isn’t too expensive either.

Next, let’s talk hair, I currently have a bottle of Charles Worthington Shine Booster All Over Gloss Spray (*) sitting firmly on my desk for those moments when I need a bit of shine boost, it also helps that smells absolutely amazing. Lastly, on to make up bits, a bit of bronzer is a must, my current favourite is Soap & Glory’s Solar Powder, a light swirl of this is enough to give me a lovely, warm glow that lasts. For eyes and lips, Bareminerals Lash Domination Mascara (*) and MUA’s Sheen Lip Balms (*) are keeping my peepers bright and my lips coloured and hydrated. I’m always desk side ready.

    This winter has been so bad that I have hand creams every where. I go crazy if I don't use hand cream after I wash my hands. I am using loccitane one currently. Really like the smell.
