I’m gonna throw some real talk at you right now. I’m all about high maintenance beauty for a low maintenance life. Think treatments that allow you to step right out of bed and crack on with your day…
Let’s face it, anything that gives you more time in bed is a winner.
Removing all images of badly tattooed eyebrows from your mind, getting semi-permanent eyebrows was probably one of the most high maintenance treatments that I’ve invested in. It was pricey, and as the name suggests… semi-permanent.
It was so worth it though. No more do I need to spend fifteen minutes drawing them on each day. No more am I wiping them off as I break a sweat in the gym. No more am I hiding my face when the rain starts to fall!
Need I say any more? I think not.
Whilst I’ve got blonde locks already, I’m firmly sat in the mouse category. Whilst I’d love to have a head full of highlights, the reality is my hair grows at a rate of knots and my pay packet just can’t quite keep up with that. Plus, effort. Sensing a theme here?
Getting my hair tinted with the balayage technique quite literally saves me hours and several pounds each month. Previously I would have paid an arm and a leg to have highlights every month, now I sit in the chair for a couple of hours, twice a year, and am left with super blonde locks all year round.
I won’t mention that I still go to Leeds to get my hair done as that adds more *high maintenance* to the situation…
Cheaper and quicker, what’s not to love?
Is it just me, or is the effort that’s required to have nice skin a complete hassle? First you’ve got to buff and brush, exfoliate regularly, moisturising… the list goes on. What a load of faff.
I’m SO there for multifunctional products that save time, giving me more time to be up and out causing trouble. These are my absolute favourite multi-functional products…
Glossier Balm Dot Com. This little beauty packs a punch – offering nourished lips, repaired elbows when they’re dry and cracked, soft cuticles, and some even carry a light tint. Perfect for all of your conditioning,
Lush Shampoo Bars. Perhaps something of legendary status, Lush’s offering not only cleanses your hair gently, but it leaves a delicious scent and glossy locks that other products just can’t seem to deliver. Honey I Washed My Hair is a total fave of mine.
Frank. If you don’t know about Frank yet, where on earth have you been? Starting out with a simple coffee scrub, their range is now full to the brim with wonder products for every beauty need. My favourite? Their Cacao Coffee scrub is the perfect do-more product, not only exfoliating but adding moisture and helping you tone up those hard to reach areas in a second. Plus, it smells insane.
