Whether you work from home permanently, part time or just on the weekends side hustling, there’s something to be said about elevated deskside beauty essentials. From multi-purpose skin salves to glow-inducing elixirs, we’re rounding up 5 of our current favourites, guaranteed to make you more productive (we hope, anyway…)
This balmy, superlative hand cream smells like freesia, tulip, blonde woods and vetiver, so it’s not only nourishing but a sensorial delight as well. The shea butter base is quickly absorbed, so you can get back to typing/writing/creating quickly.
Designed to boost skin radiance and aid digestion, Cilk’s Rosewater Extract is such a simple way to level up your daily deskside water consumption – the associated glow is an added bonus.
On the topic of hydration, Maison Balzac’s chic sky blue carafe is a nice upgrade from a standard water bottle. Be sure to refill it a few times a day.
A do-it-all salve is a worthy deskside accompaniment, and we’re suckers for Lanolips’ 101 Original Ointment. Made from lanolin (the oil found in sheep's wool) it’s supremely nourishing and works a charm on dry spots such as the lips, cuticles, and knuckles.
When it’s too late in the day for caffeine, a beautifully-scented face mist is a great pick-me-up product to see you through. Sodashi’s Calming Rose Mist is formulated with damask rosewater, vitamin E and almond oil to superficially hydrate the skin and soothe frazzled nerves.
