Lazy Girl's must have Beauty Products !

Okay, so I am confessing I am lazy ! Or to put it in a better way, I love products that help me get ready when I am in a rush and in today's post I am sharing just that, my Lazy Girls Must Have Products.

Lush Ambrosia shaving cream
I have raved about this previously here. This is my second bottle using it. It is one of my lazy girls favorite product because you can shave with this outside shower. Take some cream massage it onto the area. It gives the most clean n deep shave. The best is you don't have to wash it off. In fact if you don't have very dry skin you can even skip moisturiser.  

Dove Refresh+Care Dry Shampoo
This is my current favorite dry shampoo. But dry shampoo in general is a definite lazy girls friend. If you dont have time to wash your hair and have super greasy roots, spray some and you are done. It will not give you a clean feeling, but your hair is bound to look much nicer.   

Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser
I have spoken about this a lot. This is my body moisturiser of  choice when I am rushing out the door. This is just spray, rub and go. It absorbs in to the skin super quick and feels so light on the skin. Review HERE

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen Spray
This is similar to the Vaseline sunscreen spray. I spoke about it HERE. This is my choice of sunscreen in summer for  my body as it is light and does not feel sticky. It is so quick, spray, rub and go.

Loreal Brow Artist Plumper 
This provides definition and color to your brows in one step. Has been my go to since I bought this last year. Read my review HERE

Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Rose 
I first spoke about Burt's Bees lip balm HERE , since then I have finished my hibiscus one and bought a new one in Rose. Its a beautiful red tint. I love this lip balm, it provides two steps in one, moisture and tint. 

What are your favorite lazy girls products ?

On the go Nail Polish removal - Sportsgirl Remove It ! Nail Polish Remover wipes

There are various ways to remove your nail polish these days starting from the traditional bottle and cotton pad, to the super cool sponge soaked with remover, to wipes and more.

I have been really digging the nail polish remover wipes simply because they are so convenient.

These are essentially like makeup remover wipes but for your nails :)

These are so handy to keep with you whilst travelling or even in your makeup bag. These are perfect for the days when you have chipped nail polish and don't have time to fix it .. You can remove your polish when you are on the go, in the train or bus.

I love the feel of these wipes too, they are oil based so aren't drying at all.

One negative point is that it can get a bit messy if you are trying to remove bright nail polishes as they can get all over your hands, but that can be wiped with a clean one.

Overall I am very happy with this portable option :)

This was around 5 AUD from Sportsgirl. But I have seen these in Kmart as well. Manicare also do them.

Food for your Soul or Hand ? Review - Soap and Glory Hand Food

I was always keen on trying this cream since its so popular in the blogging world. So when Mecca Maxima opened in my nearby Westfield, I jumped to buy some Soap & Glory products, Hand Food being one of them.

I have to admit that I love the cute pink packaging and the name of the cream, not that it played any part in me picking this product ;) 

Lets get on with the review. 

Ahh, I love the packaging, its super cute and eye catchy. I love that it comes in a tube. It comes in two sizes, a handbag one and a larger one.

Consistency, Texture
The formula is thick but sinks into the skin very fast and leaves hands very hydrated. I love that its non greasy.

The scent is a bit strong though not in an overpowering way. The scent is described as sweet by a lot of reviewers but to me it is very beachy. I like the scent. 

125 ml - 9 AUD
50 ml - 5 AUD

Overal its a good hand cream but nothing out of the world in my opinion. It may not be hydrating enough for very dry skin.

O Hello Volume !

I am someone with naturally flat and somewhat straight hair and do struggle with the volume department. It's also no secret that I don't have a lot of hair. I don't like backcombing my hair, though it is one way I know I can get some volume.

Who doesn't love Va Va Voom hair and in my quest to find some volume, I bought some products but to not much  help :(

It could just be that I am using these products incorrectly, so if you happen to use any of these products or if they have worked for you, please let me know in the comments below.

Catwalk by TIGI Volume Your Highness Root Boost Spray
This is the product that I still use sometimes, the rest I have completely lost hope. This is typically a root booster kind of a product which you are supposed to apply to your damp towel dried roots and blow dry your hair. It does work to an extent but nothing very super exciting in my opinion. 

Loreal Elvive Volume Collagen Root Lift Spray
It says in the directions that this can be used both on dry or damp hair. It comes out like water and makes my hair damp, so am not sure whats the point of using this on dry hair ?!? Does nothing for my hair.

KMS California Add Volume Volumizing Spray
This is also a similar product to the TIGI one above. Spray in your hair and blow dry. This also didn't do much for my hair. I also think it sticks to my hair a bit and I can almost feel the product if not dried properly. Doesn't do much for volume too. 

Have you used any of these products ? What do you think ? What are your go to products for volume ?
