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 multi-tasking saviors. Shh!
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 a fast-absorbing spray-on moisturizer. One quick spray, and you’re ready to go. (walmart.ca, $7)
2. Multi-tasking blow-dryer brush
Still haven’t mastered the brush technique during your at-home blow-out? 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? (amazon.ca, $69).
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, then trim down the easy way with a cellulite or body-firming lotion. Nivea’s Good-Bye Cellulite Fast Acting Serum is an affordable option to try. (amazon.ca, $23)
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. (sephora.com, $32)
5. Nail decals
Love nail art but lack the patience? Nail decals were practically made for you, girl. Test out two different but equally fun looks with this Formula X ASAP two-pack. (sephora.com, $18)
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 Bear Naked Wipes.
