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?

L'oreal true match powder foundation, quick too apply and great natural coverage .

Boots curl cream applied after shower in the evening and hair is curly but not frizzy in the am...amazing stuff

Eyelash curlers - still surprised how many people don't use them

Scarves - make you look put together even if you're wearing gardening clothes

All clothes and accessories on hanger the night before makes the morning way less stressful.

Lipstick makes you look like you have made an effort!

ggirl Wed 29-Jan-14 21:47:22

when I use eyelash curlers -the curl lasts about 10 seconds

libertychick Wed 29-Jan-14 21:48:46

I'm scared of eyelash curlers - convinced I will jam an eyelid in them ouch

Ggirl - quick blast on the curlers with the hair dryer and it's makes your lashes super curly, make sure they're not too hot though ouch lesson learnt

ggirl Wed 29-Jan-14 21:51:43

i have tried that..lasts about 20sec.....must be my lashes

ggirl Wed 29-Jan-14 21:52:20

maybe I should try hairspray

DrNick Wed 29-Jan-14 21:52:37

I think curlers are a pile o shit too

AndTwoBits Wed 29-Jan-14 21:55:01

If i haven't time to wash my hair i use the sock bun method. Instant doneness and puttogetherness grin

Nope ggirl. You're not alone. I don't even get 10 secs out of them. The curl I get falls out of them the second I take the curlers away. I've tried lots. Believe me, lots.

LaurieFairyCake Wed 29-Jan-14 21:56:17

Men's eyelashes are straighter Nick wink

lurkingaround Wed 29-Jan-14 21:56:37

Yes, DrN, a heap.

LaurieFairyCake Wed 29-Jan-14 21:57:22

You're not doing it right, you have to have it all the way to the lash without trapping your eyelid cos it fucking hurts when you do that.

And you have to hold it for ten seconds.

What does S & B mean? I'm thinking 'shower and bugger orf' but I'm probably wrong!

Have done it all, LaurieF, buggeringly straight eyelashes.

Yonks ago, y'know, when I had time, I had them permed (who knew). God I was gorgeous. (Really). I fancy those eyelash extensions, but have neither the time nor the patience. Some day....

whereisshe Wed 29-Jan-14 22:02:58

I don't use eyelash curlers either, I'm paranoid they'll break my lashes off. And they don't seem to make that much of a difference on me...

My time savers are mostly removal of unnecessary steps / products (eg toner). Because I'm lazy, so things have to be actively useful to stay. I combine steps as well - like mixing my hair de-frizzer with my leave-in conditioner.

ggirl Wed 29-Jan-14 22:04:16

yup I've tried them all

BlueSkySunnyDay Wed 29-Jan-14 22:07:00

Hmm dont you put mascara on after curling your eyelashes, I find that holds them in place if you do it immediately.

I use this type

Unfortunately most of the decent brands do the heated wand type (probably because of the risk of people doing it after mascara and pulling out all their lashes) I cant heat the metal works but I cant get the heat right!

My tips - clinique superpowder double face powder (foundation and powder in one)

I also like the No7 bronzing pearls - if im really stuck for time I use them as blusher and brush over my eyelids too.

S&B = style and beauty!!!

Like S&M but different

JanuaryShoes Wed 29-Jan-14 22:09:11

Lovin' these ladies!

I also like 12 wonders hair stuff - conditioner, detangler and styling stuff in one bottle.

I use eyelash curlers but not sure they make a difference tbh.

randomfemale Wed 29-Jan-14 22:14:47

<<hits own head with a home baked loaf housebrick >>

Gawd I feel daft grin

CuttedUpPear Wed 29-Jan-14 22:18:12

I think S&B should be renamed to Shower & Bugger Orf

I like it
