I'll share one if you share yours..

The sanctuary four day moisture oil scrub... No need to moisturise after using scrub.

Take two bottles into the shower? Not me! I just want to scrub my legs and go...

So what are your time savers ladies?

Moisturise feet. Wrap feet in cling film. Put socks on. Leave for evening. = soft feet.

Not actually speedy. As very slippy. So you can't actually do anything.

Ancient mascara makes an ace eyebrow brush.

Big kid- I just imagined you in this airy gorgeous French looking room sigh white carpet, skipping about and hanging up your clothes ...

Then you said it was tiny and ruined it grin

Huge spare room confused it's tiny? MY spare room.

I leave the house at 5.45 while DH does mornings (so I can pick the DC up early). I've started sorting all my clothes on a Sunday, hanging up in huge spare room, scarves, shoes, underwear the lot. I did it so I wouldn't aka ds2 who is in our room but actually I look miles better too - I'm wearing clothes from the back of my wardrobe as I am not in a rush and grabbing my usual stuff.

I put moisturiser on before I run out then makeup once I've got to work. Stops me getting wind blown. and I had my hair cut short!

Dry scrubbing is the future!!!

JanuaryShoes Fri 31-Jan-14 14:29:03

Foxy - I never thought to put it on when dry. What a great tip! It's even better than I thought. I have the skin of a baby (well, isn) grin

I bought the 4 day sanctuary body scrub yesterday. Tis marvellous. Put it on dry skin and scrub til you're all pink and peeled, then add a bit if water, scrub again and rinse off. Absolutely no need to moisturise and skin is like silk. I keep touching my elbows, boggling at their smoothness!
I also wash my hair in the evening and go to bed with wet hair. Wake up in the morning and its already 80% dry.

Is this thread about time saving or soap dodging?

Summat smells in here wink

I loved the sock bun video. I am going to try that.

Thank you smile

DrNick Thu 30-Jan-14 00:05:37

Er... Leave exfoliation stuff on side of bath?

DrNick Thu 30-Jan-14 00:04:06

Ew. Dirty hair for a week

Liberty I do that, accessories, scarves (and even underwear) all ready the night before. I really does make you seem very put together.

I'm liking the idea of the Sanctuary body scrub. I never have time to moisturise!

Jude76 Wed 29-Jan-14 23:04:50

Nail varnish: I just fill in the chips till the weekend.

Jude76 Wed 29-Jan-14 23:03:13

Dry shampoo and straightens. Makes one wash last a week. Oh the shame. And wet wipes. And perfume.

Shaky Wed 29-Jan-14 22:59:05

I'm another one who would like to know what a sock bun is please.

My tip is do NOT buy one of those hair curling wand things. They are fucking lethal. Yes it gives you lovely curls BUT you will also endure many burns. I burnt my head, my fingers, my ear and melted part of the hair clip that was keeping the uncurled hair on the top of my head. I was even wearing the one protective, allegedly heatproof glove they provide.

However, it is possible that I just wasn't doing it right.

sassytheFIRST Wed 29-Jan-14 22:41:06

Ana Matronix? Cor.

I'm a curler of lash. Works for me.

If you have bobbed or longer hair and want messy or curls, leave it wettish after washing, fling mousse and salt spray at it then wrap it v tightly in one if those turban jobbies while you do makeup, breakfast etc. then take turban off, don't brush or touch it but blast dry with a diffuser.

Well Corygal I would say <preens> but I can't really since I threw the things away and am obviously unpreened sad

Corygal Wed 29-Jan-14 22:33:48

CuttedUpPear - now that's pure glamour.

RonaldMcDonald Wed 29-Jan-14 22:33:40

I'm unsure that I would have wanted to have my eyes 'pop' on my wedding day

Boring but speedy:

- Eyebrow threading (3 min once a month)
- Eyelash and eyebrow dyeing (10 min ditto)
- Aussie Leave in Conditioner (20 secs daily)
- Scent (5 secs daily)

Crafty and speedy:

- attacking blackheads when in public loos. The vile lighting exposes them a treat. Saves wasting precious home time on an uninspiring job.
- applying face mask and deep hair conditioning before doing housework. Saves hanging about time, plus nice sweat worked up hoovering makes the gunk work more.
- a double-sided sponge from poundsaver that lets you exfoliate once a week without having to get out of the bath to get the scrub you forgot.

Shower and bugger orf - brilliant! Let's get on to HQ...

twoboots Wed 29-Jan-14 22:31:26

this works for me, but its not speedy, its the only way i get any results with a curlet

mascara + bobby brown shimmer brick in bronze is my speedy minimummake up, people dont tend to ask if i'm ill when i wear it!

McFox Wed 29-Jan-14 22:26:13

I agree with curlers and a quick slick of eyebrow pencil, it works wonders.
