Lazy girl, beautiful life

Lazy with your beauty routine? We are too! This summer, we've got better things to do than spend hours primping in front of the mirror, so we'll be cheating a little with these multitasking saviors. Shh!

Lazy girl, beautiful life

1. Spray-on lotion

Girls usually fall into one of two moisturizing categories: addicts or haters. You either love to indulge your skin with quenching lotions or you complain of sticky, non-absorbent formulas. Lucky for you, Vaseline has invented an easily absorbent spray-on moisturizer! One quick spray and you're ready to go.

2. Multitasking blow dryer brush

Still haven't mastered the brush technique during your at-home blowout? You're not alone! While you perfect your skills, here's a little cheat sheet for you: John Frieda's Hot Air Brush combines your fave round brush with the heat from your blow dryer to help you get a better hold on your blow dry. Sweet, right?

3. Cellulite cream

Who has the time to be in the gym all day long? Not us! If you've got a bit of cellulite or flabby thigh syndrome, trim down the easy way with a cellulite or body-firming lotion. Some of our faves? Vichy CelluDestock and SkinCeuticals Body Tightening Concentrate.

4. BB creams

We really don't have the patience to throw on a serum, sunscreen and foundation! That's why we're big fans of tinted moisturizers and BB creams. One of our new obsessions? Urban Decay's Naked Skin Beauty Balm.

5. Nail decals

Love nail art but lack the patience? Nail decals were practically made for you, girl. We're partial to these from NCLA and Essie. They're long-lasting and won't take you all day.

6. Face wipes

Sometimes, a gal just doesn't have the time or energy to break out the cleanser and wash her face. For those times when you need a little refreshing but don't feel inspired to wash with soap and water this summer, break out a convenient facial cleansing wipe like these from Boots.
