What Products Are On My Desk?

Since I've now offically finished my first year of University which feels pretty crazy i've been at home and trying not to spend money or go shopping! So i've been at home and these are the products I have on my desk and use throughout the day so I thought I would share them with you.
So there is only 5 things I have with me and none of them are make-up items! When I know i'm not going to be going out all day I tend not to wear make-up which I always think is good to give my skin a break.
Carex Hand Gel in Grapefruit and Lime - I always have hand gel with me, i've found since I have acne prone skin I hate my hands feeling dirty and I try not touch my face a lot throughout the day, this definitely helps. I also always use it before I put my make-up on. 

L'Occitane Cocoa Flower Hand Cream - I really like this hand cream because it's not greasy at all. I just re-discovered it the other day and I've been using it so much since, plus it's a really nice size. 
Caudalie Beauty Elixir - This product is so raved about at the moment and I have to say I love it. I was a bit unsure at first since I have oily skin but it doesn't make my skin look oily at all instead it makes my skin and make-up look fresh throughtout the day. 

The Body Shop Tea Tree Blotting Tissues - I love these to use in the middle of the day, I think they are a must have for anyone with oily skin. 
Carmex Lip Balm - I do love this lip balm but I'm really trying to use this up. I always have lip balms on me and I really want to finish this one since I don't think I've ever finished a lip balm which sounds crazy!

So that's the products I use throughout the day. I also thought I would share with you my current favourite candle.
I got it from Sainsbury's and I think it retails for £8 but I think I got mine half price. It smells of coconut which I love but it isn't overpowering and just a nice clean scent. It also has 3 wicks and burns so nice and even. I'm definitely going to get some different scents. 

What products do you use throughout the day?

    1. It's the lip balm that just keeps giving! Haha, I love the blotting sheets because they remove the oil but not my make-up!

  5. I like this post idea! It's a bit more interesting than your average WIMB or favourite products post. I have a big tub of The Righteous Butter and a bottle of vitamins, the rest of my desk's packed with papers, a typewriter (don't ask), a teapot, a cafétière and a few different kinds of tea. I have one more exam until my first year's done (it happened so fast...), so I'm still on the caffeine.
