Your 9-5 Survival Kit: 11 Beauty Essentials to Keep at Your Desk

Let’s face it, a lot of time during the week is spent working at a desk. Feeling fresh, approachable and put together allows any task to be tackled with confidence. Here are 11 beauty essentials that will help you conquer your work week while looking and feeling your best!

1. Hand Sanitizer

Let’s start with the obvious. Your hands touch millions of surfaces throughout your workday, and you are bound to come into contact with unwanted germs. Hand sanitizer mitigates catching germs that could be harmful to your health.

2. Eye Drops

When subject to staring at a screen for hours on end, your eyes can get dry, red and itchy in protest. These eye drops provide instant relief so you can carry on with your day!

3. Hand Cream

Your hands are one of the hardest working parts of your body! Don’t let them go uncared for. Get soft and hydrated skin with a soothing hand cream in a light scent.

4. Gum or Breath Mints

Keep your mouth feeling clean and your breath fresh by having gum on-hand. Working in close proximity to others makes this a requirement!

5. Lip Balm

A basic lip balm is an essential to keep your lips hydrated and refreshed throughout your day. This balm is a simple mixture of Swedish beeswax and shea butter for ultimate moisture.

6. Sole Serum

Wore an uncomfortable pair of shoes to work? We’ve all been there. Instead of struggling through your day in pain, use this amazing serum to ease foot pain and discomfort.

7. Hairbands

These soft and stylish hairbands are gentle on your hair and on your wrist. They are sure to make a statement with all the available colors and prints!

8. Illuminating Powder

Have you hit the 2 P.M. makeup slump? Looking dull and tired? Apply some illuminating powder to add a highlighted sheen to your face. You will look bright and awake in an instant.

9. Tinted Lip Balm

Heading outside for your lunch break? Add some SPF protection to your lips while adding a dash of color with this tinted lip balm.

10. Liquid Lipstick

Big presentation today? Feel confident and poised with a swipe of this liquid lipstick before heading into the boardroom.
