Welcome back to the office – be it in your home or a shared space with colleagues. For many of us, this is our first week back at work and we want to feel inspired and enjoy our work space as much as possible. And what better way to do that than by stocking up on some beauty essentials to make our days more beauty-full? Here are the products we’ll be shopping on the Edgars site to get us into the back-to-work mood:
1. Facial mist
Our skin deserves all the TLC after the festive season, and a hydrating facial mist is a great, easy-to-use product to achieve fresh-looking skin, especially if it’s feeling meh. Devices such as air conditioners have the ability to make your skin itchy and dry, despite them cooling you down on a hot day. Skin Proud’s Refresher Hydrating Mist contains Japanese rose water, witch hazel and aloe vera – a potent cocktail to beat thirsty skin. Spritz it onto your face and decolletage throughout the day to replenish your dehydrated skin.
2. Micellar water
We love micellar waters because they’re one of the best multi-tasking beauty products out there. They cleanse your skin, remove a full face of make-up after a few swipes of a cotton pad and fix make-up blunders with such ease. It deserves a spot in your desk as an “in case of an emergency” product.
3. Red lip liner
Why red, you ask? A red lip is the best way to dress up a casual outfit last minute. We’ve chosen a red lip liner instead of a lipstick because it helps with precision and saves time when creating a red lip. This one from Inglot contains avocado oil to deeply moisturise the lips while giving you a**-kicking colour. If you’d like a finer point, use the sharpener on the other end. And don’t forget to blot.
4. Mini fragrance
Fragrance minis are the friendliest: travel friendly, handbag friendly and office friendly. They take up minimal space and instantly uplift your mood after a few sprays. Keep your favourite scent on standby this year and spritz to your heart’s content, even if you’re working from home. It’s an energy game-changer. We love Tom Ford’s cheeky Lost Cherry EDP Travel Spray. It boasts notes of exotic cherry fruit, Turkish rose, jasmine sambac, sandalwood, vetiver and cedar. Perfection.
5. Hand cream
There isn’t a day that goes by when you don’t use your digits, so keep them hydrated and nourished with a trusted hand cream. This award-winning product by L’Occitane ticks all the boxes of a brilliant desk-drawer buddy – it takes up no room, moisturises immediately and leaves no greasy residue. *adds several to cart*
New to the world of diffusers? Well, this is your sign to get one (or more) to brighten up your office scent-wise. The fragrance of this one from Jo Malone London, English Pear & Freesia, will take you on a fragrant journey of fresh, sweet pears wrapped in white freesias with a woody bottom note of patchouli and amber. This diffuser comes with 10 reeds, which need to be soaked in the oil for 24-36 hours to really fill the space with gorgeous scent.
