Beauty Made Lazy

While I don’t consider myself lazy in all avenues of life I am particularly low maintenance when it comes to makeup. Lazy equates to efficiency so I always look for easy to use products that really work.
 So here are my top  tried and true lazy beauty products!

Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Brightening Toner
 This has to be the easiest way to exfoliate ever! With one splash on a cotton round and a quick swipe to the face you are done, no sinks, no ponytails, no scrubbies required.  This contains a cocktail of acids like glycolic, salicylic and tartaric acid. These acids slowly eat their way through dead skin cells and leave you with luminous bright looking skin.  While 3 acids might seem too extreme I can assure you this doesn’t burn, sting or irritate at all.  I love this product it’s gentle, simple and effective.

By Terry Ombre Blackstar
There are those girls that wake up in the morning curl their hair, iron their tops and blend eye shadows dreamily together… then there is me. Most mornings I have a battle with my alarm clock, struggle getting out of bed, whip my hair into a ponytail and slap enough makeup on to look decent. My saving grace on rushed mornings is the By Terry Ombre Blackstar’s. I can’t specify how messy I draw this on but blended out with a fluffy brush and BAM you have an eye look. Partnered with a generous coat of mascara and no one will ever know this took seconds to create. The Ombre Blackstar’s are amazing and well worth there expensive price tag.

Dior Lip Glow
This is the quintessential lazy girl product. I personally have to limit my use on these because I go through them like crazy. I’ve rave about the Lip Glow once a month so I really need to keep this sort and simple. Basically Dior’s Lip Glow adds the perfect touch of color while feeling like a rich balm.  So if you’re ever on the go/wake up late/don’t want the maintenance of a lipstick this is the perfect mirror-less lip product.

THEFACESHOP Raspberry Root Sleeping Mask
The cute packaging, my love for raspberries and the whole sleeping thing I was sold on this product before I even read a review. The jelly like mask is meant to firm up skin, tighten pores while nourishing all at the same time. One knock most overnight masks I’ve tried is they make you face feel sticky, so sticky I fear my pillow might stick to my face.  With The Raspberry Root Mask I don’t get that its lightweight gel makes it comfortable to wear all-night and easy to apply too. As for the performance I wake up with noticeably clear, brighter, baby smooth skin. If you go to THEFACESHOP this would be on my top 3 things to try (I sense a blog post coming) …. It’s just so darn easy slap on before bed and wake up with amazing looking skin.


  1. I love the Dior Lip Glow x
