Time saving beauty solutions
Why is it that the times you really need to visit the beautician for a wax, a tan or a pedicure are the times you’re ridiculously busy, or short on cash? It’s beyond annoying, right?
Luckily, we have a few quick, easy and affordable solutions to help ensure you get your beauty needs sorted (and still stay on top of your Christmas shopping and end of year drinks), without having to deal with the stress of trying to get to the beautician. All you need is some hard-working products that can help give you salon-quality results at home – no appointment necessary!
Quick and easy at-home… hair removal
If you find yourself dealing with rebellious brows, fuzzy underarms or a bushy bikini line, but the pre-Christmas party season has left you short on time and cash, don’t fret. Simply stock up on a few of Veet’s easy-to-use products to help you achieve effective, salon-quality hair removal results, in the comfort of your own home. To wax your brows and upper lip, we recommend Veet High Precision Facial Wax & Care – an ingenious tapered wand that features precision facial wax on one end and a soothing aftercare cream on the other. Veet EasyGrip Ready-To-Use Wax Strips are perfect for waxing your underarms thanks to their EasyGrip tab, which makes waxing the somewhat-awkward area fast, easy and most of all, effective. For your legs, opt for Veet EasyWax™ Electrical Roll-On Sensitive Legs & Arms Refill, or use the smaller refill specifically designed for your bikini area. Both are formulated with the same ingredients used in salon wax and leave your skin feeling smooth for up to four weeks.
Quick and easy at-home… gel nails
If your nails are more ‘manky’ than manicured, it can be a little disheartening – especially when you put so much effort into making the rest of you look so nice. If you can’t afford to tend to your fingers and toes in salon, reach for the Rio 14 Day UV Gel Clear Polish, instead. Applied over the top of your favourite nail polish (that’s right, any polish), the clear gel reacts with UV light to create a super strong high gloss layer that protects your polish from chipping for up to 14 days.
Quick and easy at-home… fake tan
Did you know that achieving a gorgeous faux glow is actually really simple to DIY? Le Tan Wash Off Bronze is an instant self-tanner that dries completely in just 60 seconds. Better yet, it’s transfer resistant and won’t come off until you wash yourself with soap and water – which means that you won’t need to worry about looking streaky or patchy, rain, hail or shine! Who said a home tanning job was hard work?
Quick and easy at-home… blow dry
Sometimes the thought of blow-drying your hair at home seems like such large chore, it makes you want to spend money that you just don’t have. Well, we’re here to tell you that your budget can breath a sigh of relief – and it’s all thanks to products that can make your life a whole lot easier. Cedel Blow Dry Faster Heat Protector is designed to reduce blow-drying time while simultaneously protecting your hair from the heat. This means that you won’t have to waste what precious time you do have struggling to dry your mop, and your hair will be in better condition so you won’t need as many trips to the hairdresser, either!
Quick and easy at-home… tooth whitening
Spending time and money in the dentist’s chair trying to whiten your teeth might not fit in with your festive season schedule (or budget), but the good news is you can carry on your smile brightening work from home. Cleverwhite Dissolving Whitening Strips dissolve on your teeth while whitening them, in less than 10 minutes! That means that you can get your multi-tasking magic on and prepare dinner or put on a load of washing while brightening your smile!
