The Desk Edit.

As bloggers, we spend an awful lot of time at our desks. Editing photos, replying to emails and writing up posts. I spend a couple of hours a week at my desk, so all the products I keep on hand, are specially picked to provide hydration, refreshment and general prettiness..Jo Malone here’s looking at you…
Firstly, clean hands! I spend ages tapping away at my keyboard then rubbing my face in frustration so it is important to prevent germs from spreading. Just a small blob of Soap & Glory Hand Maid is perfect for keeping pesky germs at bay. It smells lovely and sinks into the skin almost straight away. 
Caudalie Beauty Elixir has been a staple of mine since last year, and it has prized place on my desk. Whenever I start to feel a little worse for wear, or tired, a quick spritz of this and I am completely refreshed. It smells amazing and really hydrates my skin. 
Botanics Refreshing Eye Roll-On is a life savour! I get quite puffy eyes, especially when i’ve been staring at a computer screen for hours on end. So just a quick roll..obviously..of this under each eye works wonders. 
For my lips I use Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Lip Repair Balm*. It has a really thick, creamy texture which feels slightly strange at first, a little product definitely goes a long way when it comes to this lip balm. It leaves my lips feeling so soft and hydrated. 
Origins Super Spot Remover is one of my favourite spot treatments. It really drys out and tightens the spot, which to me, means it is doing something! I only use this product when i’m staying in the house as it leaves a sort of…white, crusty coating on spots, sounds attractive I know, but hey..needs must.
Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede Candle is included in this post as it never moves from my desk, and just looks and smells amazing!!!!!! 
What products do you keep on hand? Any desk side heros?

    I too love the EA Lip Balm. Mainly on my desk, I keep lip balm, hand cream and cuticle cream as I suffer from dry hands and lips.

    Really interesting idea for a post! I normally just keep hand cream and hand sanitizer on my desk, need to look into that Caudalie Beauty Elixir. Sounds like something my skin would need!
