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?
