10 of the best: time savers for multi-tasking mums - page 2
Being a mum is a big job, but being a preened, relaxed-looking mum with chic hair and make-up is a whole new ball game.
Besides being busy chasing around the kids and toting nappy bags, there’s also the lack of sleep and increasing stress levels to deal with – especially if you’re a single mum. Which is why we’ve done our bit and come to the rescue with some of the best multi-tasking beauty products for the unsung heroes in our lives, our mums…
“The Garnier Youthful Radiance Anti-Dark Circles Roll-On Concealer is a clever design in that its' pen like to hold in your hand with a silver, stimulating metal massage ball at the tip and cap. A gentle roll across my under eye skin area makes it fast and easy to do 3 things at once. ”¨1. The massage ball stimulates the skin reducing dark circles and puffiness (also penetrating and hydrating skin thanks to the caffeine and lemon it contains) 2. It applies concealer (fair to medium is the shade I use) hiding dark circles for up to 12hours and 3. Contains sunscreen protecting sensitive under eye skin from UV. ”¨This is a great multitasker! It is said to be fragrance free but I find it has a very faint creamy scent that’s practically un-noticeable. It feels ever so cooling when applied and has a colour that complements my complexion well. I find it important to keep it stored with the massage ball standing up-right as otherwise it can easily allow to much product to dispense when rolled under the eye area. A small circular motion from left to right below each eye is more than enough to dispense the concealer and I find using my finger tip to gently pat and blend it into place works perfectly. ”¨Using this is efficient, effective and leaves me feeling confident knowing that it stays in place on my dry skin, doesn't irritate my sensitivities and doesn't settle into my fine lines or look dry. This gives me an instant pick me up and leaves me looking fresh faced even when I’m actually terribly fatigued. Well worth having in your makeup kit especially if dark circles and puffy under eyes are a problem for you. An innovative item to soothe and conceal, a true multi tasker.” Rating: 5/5 – goddessmagick
