10 Time Saving Beauty Products

Leave a Comment
It has come to that lovely time of year when the holiday season can feel a little bit (or a lot) like a mad dash. There are so many occasions to get ready for and no time to get ready. Here are my ten most used beauty items when there so many events and gatherings and so little time.


The Wet Brush - This is a must if you have thick hair. It makes detangling so much easier. I have the mini one, and it works just fine on my long, thick hair. I got mine at Ulta, but they're also available on Amazon.

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment - If you need to go an extra day between washes, then this is the product for you. It gives a smooth style that holds. I'm not crazy about this for every day because my hair feels crunchy when I use it, but this is what I use when I need a style that is going to last and look fabulous.

Conair Infiniti Pro Dryer - Dries my hair in a flash and is a fraction of the price of similar hair dryers.


Murad Intensive-C Radiance Peel - All you need is 5-10 minutes, and you're on your way to an instantly brighter complexion. You might feel frazzled, but you're face won't show it.

StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner* - This product claims to reduce the appearance of pores instantly and over time, and it actually delivers! I use this after my moisturizer in the morning (can also use at night), and it makes my skin look and feel smoother. It also takes away some of the shine from the sunscreen in my moisturizer. I wear this every day, even if I'm not wearing a full face of makeup. When I do wear makeup, it almost acts as a primer, keeping it the shine away and helping it last longer. I used to wear primer every now and then, but I can skip it altogether when I use this! This was sent to me for review, but I really and truly absolutely love this product.

Makeup - Face:

Laura Mercier Mineral Powder - I find mineral powders to be so convenient and easy to use, and nothing compares to the mineral powder from Laura Mercier. The Mineral Pressed Powder is just as nice and even more conveninet for on the go.

Sephora Collection Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer - It's easy to apply and has some serious coverage. You won't find this one creasing under your eyes either. I've heard this one compared to the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, but I don't have it to make that call. I guess I need to put the Nars on my list!

Makeup - Eyes & Lips

L'Oreal Infallible 24 hr Eye Shadow - One swipe of this has all the shimmer you need for a festive eye. They look great used as one color all over  the lid or blended with other shadows. I have a couple of shades, but Amber Rush is my most-used. 

Maybelline The Rocket Mascara - This mascara delivers tons of volume without having to spend the time to apply layer upon layer. Just apply one or two coats, and you're good to go.

Lip Crayons - So, this one is more of a type of product rather than one specific product. I love lip crayons because they're like your liner and lipstick in one. I wear my Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Provacateur the most during the holidays. The Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencils and the L'Oreal La Lacques and Le Mattes are great options too.

Those were my 10 products that I use when I'm short on time and still need to be presentable. I hope you found this post helpful in some way. What products do you use when you need to get ready in a hurry?
