The Lazy Day Edit

best products for when you have no energy, perricone md blue plasma review, jurlique rosewater balancing mist, soap & glory the rushower, lanolips tinted lip balm, colourpop aphrodisiac

We all have those days. Every now and then, I just feel like sitting in bed all day with my pyjamas on, though in all fairness those days are rare for me now and often stolen from a weekend here or there. I don't feel inclined to get up and shower or brush my hair or do a full face of makeup or anything. To be honest, having one of these days once in a while is quite refreshing when you're constantly busy and cramming in the use of as many beauty products as you possibly can on a daily basis ;) So here are the beauty products I do reach for when I truly can't be bothered to bother...

LAZY DAY SKINCARE

I genuinely don't bother with the whole ordeal of a Skincare Routine on these days. And just keep a couple of things to hand that I use in the daytime to make sure I've cleansed and moisturised and I don't bother with any treatments or fancy layering of products etc.

Perricone MD Blue Plasma* is such an interesting product because it cleanses the skin and works as a treatment in one go. I take some on a cotton pad and swipe it all over my face and the blue jelly serum cleanses, refreshes and hydrates the skin. It's a no rinse product which makes it ideal to sit on my bedside table when I can't be bothered to make an extra effort.

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist is another product I keep on my bedside table that I use as a toner if my skin is feeling particularly dehydrated. Or I use it throughout the day as an uplifting mist or if I get that dry pulling feeling. It is so lightweight yet so hydrating and soothing that I've really been enjoying this outside of my lazy days too.

Cane & Austin Mattifying Primer SPF50 keeps my oily/combo skin moisturised while keeping my oily t-zone shine free. It can also be used as a makeup primer, though it should be noted this has a very slippery, silicone texture that I'm not a fan of. But for a lazy day, it's perfect especially as there is the slightest hint of a tint so I can feel like I made some effort even though I didn't.

Lanolips Tinted Balm SPF30 is highly nourishing and makes me lips appear instantly plumped and healthy. The tint is a super pretty and flattering pink that brightens my complexion altogether and I think it makes me look put together on the days I just don't care to look it.


LAZY DAY MAKEUP


Here are a few things for if I even bother with makeup or looking presentable because in all honesty, days like these I don't even look in a mirror for it to matter. But if I do, it's super minimal, and just bare basics to make me feel like I'm making some effort for the sake of my own reflection ;)

Natural Collection Brow Pencil* is just your basic brow pencil that you use quickly to fill in your brows and add some depth and definition. It's not overly precise or too dramatic which is why I reach for it when I want natural looking fuller brows. It also has a spoolie on the other end making it a two in one product for those truly lazy days.

Rodial Smokey Eye Pencil is a must even on the laziest of days for me because I am never without a touch of eyeliner, and if I am, then something is seriously wrong. Haha! This one is easily smudged out and is super black but annoyingly doesn't set and stay in place. So I tend not to use it when I have a full eye look on because it just smudges so I use it on its own when I don't need to look too polished.

Colourpop Super Shock Cheek Blush - Aphrodisiac is one of my favourite nude blushes which is more on the pinky side of nude. It's the perfect shade to mimic my natural blushing/flushed shade so I just pat a little on each cheek to add some colour to my complexion.


HAIR


Nope, hair washing (or even brushing!!!) is not a priority on days like these. It's just about getting some sort of manageability on the situation depending on how dire it is and getting it smelling fresher than it is.

Soap & Glory The Rushower is the best dry shampoo I've ever encountered. It doesn't leave white streaks, doesn't make my head feel heavy and doesn't make my hair feel crispy. It smells incredible (if you're an S&G fan, you'll know it & love it!) and best of all, keeps my hair fresher between washes and looking voluminous and deals with any greasiness or flatness instantly.

Invisibobble Hair Ties are my choice of hair accessory for lazy days because I find them impractical for regular days but ideal for when I just want to do a messy bun and not think about it. They don't pull the hair too taut and are quite comfortable to lie down wearing.


What products do you keep on hand when you just want to lounge around? What products make you feel like you've put in more effort than you have? I'd love to know...

  1. Mascara and concealer, and for skincare I usually opt for some leave on treatments or strong exfoliants that need to be left alone to work best. Oh, and retinol in the evening.
    But as much as I would feel like one of these days, there hasn´t been one in ages. When the kids are small, not getting out of your pjs is simply not an option!

  2. I have lighter makeup days on the weekend. Having a young son means up early, and not much relaxing. When winter comes I like to stay home on Sundays and not go out.

  5. I often have these days! It's unusual for me to go out and about without a bit of colour in my eyebrows, but I have been known to slink off to the local shops completely bare-faced. Always, always moisturise though otherwise my skin feels yuck! xxx

  7. I feel like I have one of these days at least once a week! My dry shampoo is almost empty and I've been on the hunt for someone talking about a good one. I'll have to try Soap and Glory's!

  8. If I'm having a proper lazy day I try my best not to wear makeup at all and give my skin a little breathing space, but I love the products you've chosen. I got Perricone MD blue plasma treatment in a love me beauty box but I am yet to try it, for some reason I didn't even realise it was a cleanser and treatment in one! xx

  9. Glossier's Boy Brow and a tinted lip blam are must haves when I'm in a rush to leave but don't want to go out barefaced. This is my first time hearing of Soap & Glory's dry shampoo, so thank you for sharing! I'm a big fan of their scents so I'll definitely have to check it out!

  13. I am never lazy with my skincare routine, even on my most tired or lazy days, I do almost the whole shebangs. LOL! Now on the makeup front is a completely different story as I will use concealer, eyebrow pencil, eyeliner and mascara and I'm good to go.

  15. I swear everyday is a lazy day for me when it comes to hair. I'm always that one that has a bottle of dry shampoo with them. The Rushower sounds quite interesting, I've only ever kept to Batiste ones. Plus I picked up some invisibobbles from H&M for around £2, best two pounds I've ever spent!

  16. I'm rarely lazy with my skincare routine but I've been very lazy with my makeup lately, lol! If I don't go to work I just prefer to sleep a bit longer then do my makeup before school run and once I'm out without makeup I can't be bothered to do it once I'm back home, and it saves me so much time, haha! x

  18. Hi all,
    Read my testimony!
    Getting ex back after a breakup.
    My boyfriend of a 2 year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we've been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn't have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com call/whatsapp: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
