Most of us are always looking for ways to easily stay perfectly groomed. Easier said than done! If you have the perfect tools to hand, it does however make the job much easier.
Hand & Nail Tools
I have quite an issue with rough cuticles. I like to ensure I moisturise them with oil or a balm. I’ve found multi-tasking oils to be well suited to the job. Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi Usage Dry Oil* has been perfect as I can moisturise my cuticles without my fingers and hand feeling greasy. I can go about my doing ma thang minus greasy, slippery fingers!
An alternative I’ve recently found that I love is The Body Shop Wild Argan oil Miracle Solid Oil*, £8. Why you ask? Firstly it is super nourishing with a balmy texture, it doesn’t turn into oil in contact with skin but remains balmy and really moisturises my cuticles. Secondly, I love how portable it is. With oils, you always run the risk of spilling it all over your bag, whereas this solid oil in a tin can be carried around in your handbag to be used anywhere, anytime. Bonus – it smells incredible. I’m rubbish at describing fragrances, so I won’t even try, but please go to The Body Shop and just have a try of this. You will not regret it!
Nail clippers are an essential for me. I can’t do nail scissors, they just don’t have the same kind of stability (yes, I am aware that I’m not marrying my nail clipper…). I’ve been loving the Ted Baker Nail Clipper*, £6. It’s compact and precise so helps me to trim my nails how I want. It changes from squares to ovals to even squovals!
Eyes are the first thing others notice and we put so much effort into our peepers! To ensure all the efforts are not wasted, you need to prep and groom the eye area to perfection.
Eyebrows – they frame the eyes and add definition to your face. I keep mine well shaped and groomed with a pair of tweezers, like these beautiful Ted Baker Tweezers*, £6. They are sharp and do the job perfectly. I love how elegant and pretty they are. I use my Boots No7 Magnifying Mirror, £11 to help me get all the stubborn brow hairs.
I love long, defined and volumised lashes. Achieving this with just mascara is quite difficult so meet my friend, the Ted Baker Eyelash Curler*, £8. This helps me to give a real lift to the roots of my lashes, which helps my lashes look and maintain the length and curl!
So that’s my beauty tools collection to help stay groomed.
