Desk Side Beauty

Whenever I'm at my desk blogging away, which is pretty much every day, I like to have my essential products nearby so I don't have to get up and search for them (I'm lazy I know). So I thought I would share my desk side beauty essentials today as these are the products that I have been using every single day for months now.
Desk Side Beauty
It's been ridiculously cold in England for the last couple of months and as a result, my hands have been extremely dry! I have tried so many different hand creams and I hate the way most of them leave the skin feeling and I don't like when they leave behind residue or a greasy feeling on the skin. However, the L'Occitane Hand Creams are some of my favourite ones as they sink into the skin quickly and hydrate the hands quickly without any residue being felt behind on the skin and they all have a lovely scent. I have one of the massive ones from the Rifle Paper Co. collaboration in the Shea Butter option. Another hand related product I like to keep at my desk is the Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil. I have horrible cuticles and I've found that this is one of the few products that will have them look smooth and not so dry for day to day, it smells lovely too! 

My skin can be quite oily in the T-Zone so I love the beautyblender blotterazzi as it will remove excess oil from the skin without having to add more products to the skin throughout the day. I have been using this for at least a year now and I need to get another for my handbag because I can't be without it now. As we head into warmer months I love to use the Mario Badescu Facial Sprays to refresh the skin. These are the perfect skin pick me ups, I even use them to set my makeup or to fix it if I have applied too much powder. 

I am never without a lip product or two, I counted the other day and I has seven in my handbag alone! As my lips tend to be dry all of the time these days, I am never without a Glossier Balm Dotcom. The one I am currently using the Birthday edition and I love that it has sparkles in! I have the Mint and Cherry ones too but this one is definitely my favourite. These are so hydrating on the lips and actually provides long-lasting hydration benefits. If you haven't tried Glossier yet, if you use this link,, you will get 10% off your first order. I really like lip glosses and the Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb is my go-to gloss at the moment. This is surprisingly quite hydrating on the lips and I love the rose nude shade it adds to the lips along with a tonne of shine. 

The final product I always have to have at my desk is the Tropic Tamanu Healing Balm. This is a skincare must have for me! Whenever I have skin irritation or something that needs healing, I always use this. I raved about it in my March favourites and I can't get enough of it. I get some really dry, flaky patches sometimes and this always fixes it within just a few days.
