Time. It’s the one thing that as much as we try, we can never control. Yet one thing that we can master is our beauty routines, and the essential products that will not only make you feel amazing, but will give you extra time to enjoy your morning coffee (or get extra sleep).

Spray on nail polish

The dilemma: you’re rushing to get ready for your important meeting when disaster strikes- you realise the mani you got just 2 days ago is already chipped! The answer is spray on nail polish. Yep, you read that right- there is such a thing as spray paint for your nails. What’s more, the formula is quick drying and comes in a range of on trend colours. What’s more to love?

Dry shampoo

Who would we be without dry shampoo? The torturous procedure of washing, blow drying and styling our hair is diminished thanks to this miracle product. Simply spray on your roots where your hair may be greasy, gently tousle in with your fingertips and brush through. Your hair will instantly be voluminous and fresh as a daisy.

Makeup wipes

Ok, we understand that makeup wipes are decidedly a beauty no-no as a sole skincare routine, yet you can’t deny that these aren’t handy. There’s nothing better than taking your makeup off after a long day before starting your beauty ritual at night, or even a quick refresh in the morning. Plus, it’s amazing for any minor clean ups (especially the daily smudge of our mascara that we always seems to create).

Matte lipstick

We love any dual action product, and matte lipsticks are one of those products which you wouldn’t think could be used for multiple purposes. Applying with stippling blush it can be used for a blush or a darker shade as a bronzer, and even an eye shadow.

Bronzing cream

Bronzing cream is definitely a holy grail product! If you’ve just gotten a tan, you can easily mix the product with your foundation to give your face an instant glow, or to fix up any patches as your tan wears off. For a dewy look, you can also use bronzing cream for your subtle contour.
