We all need a stash of beauty kit in our office drawers for those ‘caught short’ moments – or for a little distraction when the job at hand gets a bit dull 😉 As a beauty PR, I’ve honed my artillery down to 9 key products that get me through the day whilst also fitting neatly in my desk…
P.s. Big thanks to Myla & Oscar for these awesome custom made letter blocks 🙂
Fragrance touch-ups throughout the day are essential, but I struggle with clunky bottles – too inconvenient. A solid perfume is the answer and the mix of fruit, pepper and incense in this wear down well.
Office heating system drying skin out? A quick spritz of this facial spray will perk it back up in a flash. Suitable for all skin types, it’s light, fresh and soothing.
As well as being better for the environment than an aerosol, this powder format dry shampoo has a peppermint fragrance that smells utterly divine and gives the scalp a bonus reviving zing whilst mattifying hair.
Every girl needs a bright lipstick on hand for those step up moments and Ainsel is a brilliant British brand that specialises in bold pigment. Check out their capsule lipstick collection or sign up for their cool Colour Surprise subscription service.
Such a great little piece of kit – talc-free blotting papers that also refresh your foundation base, available in 3 shades. The perfect foil for mid-afternoon shine, anywhere.
I love the vintage style tin and am even more obsessed by the peppermint tingle. Dab on temples to help relieve headaches and tension.
3. hands & nails
Anti-bac is a desk drawer staple but Merci Handy have the best, no contest. Cute, colourful, softening and great smelling. My fave is the light, floral Flower Power.
Forget sugary treats, this hand cream should help stave off cravings! Packaged like an ice-cream tub and with a sweet (although not cloying) fragrance, it’s a pot of joy.
I’m obsessed by this genius little kit – a dinky LED lamp + 3-in-1 polish = 15 minute gel manicures powered by your laptop.
