The Desk Edit

I thought it was time for another desk side beauty check-in. It has been a while since my last installment and now I’ve got a more permanent set-up and a desk (!?!! – exciting stuff, though it’s squashed in next to the kitchen bin which makes for an interesting aroma throughout the day), there’s a MUJI box brimming with some of my most utilised beauty bits…

As with stereotypical desk side beauty stuff supplies, the majority of my pile concerns nourishment. Keeping my mitts, cuticles, face and any miscellaneous dry patches flake-free is top of the agenda. For hands, I’m currently squeezing my way through The Body Shop’s Honeymania Hand Cream, which does the job. Sweet smelling and doesn’t leave my fingertips so greasy they slip all over the keyboard. I like to keep an oil within arms reach for any areas which need a more ramped-up treatment and at the moment a mini sample of the Kama Ayurveda Cypress Orange Oil is tending all-over. Spritz-wise I’m all about Forest Essential’s Facial Tonic Mist Pure Rosewater, which aside from delivering a hydrating blast of rosewater smells awesome. And then for lips I’m been slicking on the Forest Essentials Luscious Lip Balm: Sugared Rose Petal – though I’m sure more ends up being licked off then actually ends up on my lips.

A slightly more random addition to the stash is, for moments of limited head space, Soulflower’s Energy Boost Aromatherapy Roll-on* which I could quite happily sniff from the spout all day long.
