Deskside Beauty


Apologies for the late post tonight folks, I don't really have an excuse bar the fact I have been out and about! Anyway, I use my desk nearly everyday, so it isn't really surprising that I have picked up a few beauty essentials I need for working on my laptop. This isn't a massive collection - my makeup bag is for that! - but it is just a few items I feel like I need for my desk, to keep me feeling fresh even when I am working for a while.

La Source Hand Therapy
I use this when I am suffering from dry hands due to the cold weather (grrr) so a hand cream is a must for me. I chose this Crabtree and Evelyn one, and it is £15, but it is well worth the money. It's great as it hydrates my hands within a few minutes, and does everything it's supposed to. 


I use this after one of my teachers explained just how many germs there are on a keyboard. If you think about it, it makes sense. If you are using your keyboard quite a lot, then germs are undoubtedly going to end up on the keys, which you might leave to go eat etc, so I just keep this on my desk to reduce the amount of germs. Of course, you can use any hand gel, I just got this for Christmas in a beauty pack!


This a perfect wake-me-up for the desk, for me partly because it is cool and refreshing, partly because it scares the life out of me when I spray it on my face. It is so easy to use, just push down and it is quite cheap too, I brought my small bottle for £4.25 and it is still going strong!


For me, a lipbalm is essential as I tend to get dry lips quite a lot. I am currently using a twin pack Vanilla and Strawberry lipbalm set from Next I got for Christmas, but any lipbalm will do. I always try to keep my lips hydrated because lipstick looks soo much better on hydrated lips than dry lips!

What are your desk essentials?


Oh! I just wanted to say a big thank you for everyone as I just reached a 100 followers via Bloglovin'! I couldn't have done it without you, and I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you!

  3. I agree about the hand cream, my hands are always getting dry. I don't use hand gel, I just wipe my keyboard with Dettol wipes every now and then :)

  4. Your desk looks so nice and clean! I'm one to not keep beauty products on my desk (because I often get distracted and walk to the bathroom for that haha) I will definitely check out that hand cream as my hands (and whole body) has been so dry lately due to the heater. I am definitely a germaphobe, so hand sanitizer is a must for me in my purse. I wash my hands way too many times during the day, and always have to go to bed with clean hands (yes, I am quite the weirdo). If you're apply to buy it, I would recommend the Bath & Body Works hand sanitizers as they have so many different scents!

  5. You know, I've been looking for a face mist and I didn't know that Breath of Fresh Air is a face mist! I thought it was a toner but finally I know something to get at LUSH. Thanks!

    1. I think it is a toner, but I use it as a face mist as it does always seem cold! x

  6. My essentials aren't beauty products, they more incline towards getting things done stuff! (I know, terrible description). I normally need a notebook and cool pen, lip balm (just plain stuff), sticky notes, a water bottle and Panadol. I know, this is so boring. I could never turn it into a blog post!
