Beauty on a Time Limit

So, I have a right array of products that I have been enjoying this week. Having such a busy job means that I don't have a lot of time to spend when it comes to putting make up on or taking it off during the week. I could get out of bed earlier but I love my sleep even more than I love make up! I'm loving all of these products because they are so handy and just make my life much easier when it comes to perking up my skin the lazy way or attempting to look a little more glamorous on a daily basis:

Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette: I am obsessing over this palette at the minute, I can't get enough of it. I have been taking this everywhere with me, I just find it so versatile as it can transform any look. You can create a neutral look for during the day and a bolder, more dramatic look if you are going out- you just can't go wrong with it.

Chanel Rouge Allure Lipstick: A berry coloured lipstick of course (what did you expect from me!?). I slick this on in a morning to make me feel more glamorous than I actually am. It feels so moisturising and has amazing staying power. I love a statement lip when I don't have time to apply a full face of make up on a time limit!

Rodial Bee Venom Moisturiser: I can't even tell you how much I love this product. I could probably write a whole blog post on this one product (maybe two?!) and it still wouldn't be enough. I discovered this beauty when it came in the Harvey Nichols addition of Glossybox and I am down to the last little bit. I have never tried a moisturiser that makes such a difference to my skin upon application. It makes the skin look glowing and healthier almost immediately. I pop this on morning and night, it evens out my skin tone and feels soothing too.

CND Scentsations Crushed Amber Lotion: This hand cream is perfect to pop in your handbag- I have been applying this religiously throughout the day. It sinks in to the skin so beautifully and does not feel thick or greasy. It also smells absolutely delicious and this range comes in so many different scents, I want to own them all!

Nivea Daily Essentials Extra Gentle Eye Make Up Remover: This has become a staple product in my night time make up removal routine. It has taken me so long to find an eye make up remover that actually works and doesn't irritate my eyes. I love it. This product removes every scrap of stubborn mascara and leaves your eye area feeling refreshed. Perfect for removing your make up quickly when you just want to fall into bed at the end of a very long day.

And there we have it, a round up of my go to products when I'm really pushed for time!

What products do you recommend when you're feeling a bit lazy?! Are there any handy products that you always have in your handbag?
P.s. I have recently set up a Twitter account for my blog. I'd be very grateful if you followed me @fransbeautyblog
