Five best buys for busy women
Us women are certainly a busy bunch these days. If we’re not working long hours or juggling a super-busy social life, we’re chasing after children, feeding a hungry hubby or picking up after other people’s mess. Add to that trying to keep fit and healthy and attempting to get general life admin done, and…well…it doesn’t exactly leave much time for getting beautified, now does it?
Luckily there are some pretty nifty beauty buys out there that, like us, are masters at multi-tasking. They also remove more than just a few minutes off your ‘getting ready’ time, which is no small thing when you’re totally time-poor. So check out our list of top-to-toe time savers and enjoy being able to do all the things you have to do, while looking and feeling gorgeous, too!
Best time-saver for your face: NIVEA Visage 3-in-1 Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Wipes
We often have all the best intentions to cleanse, tone, exfoliate and moisturise – we even have aspirations of applying serums every night and using face masques once a week – but the truth of the matter is, there’s often barely enough time for a quick cleanse, let alone a multi-step regime. And that’s exactly why you’re going to LOVE these wipes. They remove make-up, cleanse your skin (and not just on the surface either, but deep into your pores to remove all impurities) and provide a gentle exfoliation, too. Skin care sorted in one simple step!
Best time-saver for your ageing skin: SunSense Anti-Ageing Face SPF 30+
Concerned with ageing skin but don’t have the time to apply a gazillion products to it before you leave the house each day? Then this product is definitely for you. Formulated by a known and trusted sun protection brand, it provides broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection to guard against sun damage (which we all know is the number one cause of premature ageing). Then, unlike your regular sunscreens, it also contains AHAs, vitamin B3 and vitamin E, which are all hard-working wrinkle fighters designed to keep your skin looking younger for longer. Score!
Best time-saver for your body: Veet EasyWax Electrical Roll-On Kit
How often have you thought to yourself, ‘I really need to book a wax today’ – and three weeks later you’re still saying the same thing? When you’ve got a million things on your plate, finding the time to get to a beauty salon is probably last on your priority list, which is why this at-home waxing kit is awesome. Not only does it enable you to get fuzz-free whenever it suits you, but the wax in the kit is the same quality as that used in a salon and is also enriched with natural beeswax, ensuring that your skin stays smooth and nourished as well as hair free.
Best time-saver for your hair: Klorane Extra Gentle Dry Shampoo
Don’t have time to wash your hair? Too rushed to even attempt to create the extra volume your limp locks need? Then you NEED to get this product into your bathroom cupboard asap. Any time you have greasy hair all it takes is a couple of spritzes of dry shampoo onto your roots, a quick tousle and your hair will look like it’s been freshly washed! You’ll also gain extra volume and texture in the process, too.
Best time-saver for your nails: Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips Kit
Got 40 minutes for a manicure each week? Uh, yeh right! And even if you did take the time to give your nails a paint, I bet you’d be in such a rush to do other things that you’d ruin them before they were even dry. And that’s exactly why – once tried – these babies will become your best friend. You simply press them onto your nails and voila! A perfect, instantly dry manicure is all yours!
