Speed Beauty

I love a good pamper, locking myself away in the bathroom for hours to scrub/buff/condition/rinse/tan/moisturise myself to within an inch of my life… but sometimes there just isn’t time for that sort of pampering and a girl needs a quick fix.

These three products are ones that I’ve been loving for a quick beauty solution.


First up is Decleor Life Radiance Mask* – this works in three minutes, so no more of that faffing around with ages waiting for a mask to dry or ages for it to do it’s thing. This is a light weight gel that is lovely to apply – the scent smells just like a spa, so you can feel like you’re having a proper pamper even if you’re doing this first thing in the morning before work – this is generally when I do this with this mask, if my skin is feeling dull or dry I apply this before hopping into the shower, by the time I’m ready to rinse shampoo this can be rinsed off. The next best thing about this is how speedy it is to remove – some  more drying masks may work quickly but they are a bit of a fuss to remove.

Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends* – this is a great quick fix mask for hair. Scoop a handful out and apply, concentrating on ends then leave for a little while (I tend to only give this about 5mins max and that’s plenty for my fine hair), it smells good so is another one that’s lovely to use in the morning. Plus it rinses out easily and leaves skin feeling soft and healthy and looking smooth. An easy quick fix for dry feeling hair!

Now this isn’t an all over fix but my third pick for speed beauty is a cross between a basic and something that’s lovely to use. This is a Neutrogena Nourishing Hand Cream* – this is because my number one body thing that needs that extra pamper has to be the hands. Mine are constantly so dry, but because this smells amazing it makes it a pleasure to use. It smells fruity and soaks in straight away – of course, you can double up and apply to other dry bits if needed!

So there we have it, my three little speed beauty tricks – any product suggestions of your speedy beauty tricks please leave them below!

    The Decleon mask sounds so lovely! I love herbal essence shampoos but I tried the Tousle Me Softly finishing cream and found it so sticky unfortunately.
