We are all busy women; we always have something else we can be getting on with. In the mornings I always find that I am slightly rushed for time. If I want to leave the house with my best foot forward, then I find I have to spend a lot of time on my morning beauty routine. Some mornings, something has to give and I have left the house not always feeling my best. I have found these 9 things have helped solve this problem.
These 9 beauty products I have tried that realty have saved me time in the mornings. They are great to have to hand so you can still leave for work feeling your best even if you pressed the snooze button to many times.
Co-Lab Dry Shampoo
Every women needs a bottle of this to hand for those mornings you need to freshen up your hair but do not have the time to style it. It is a lifesaver once a month for me! They have a wide range of fragrances so you can find anyone to suit you.

Filorga Foam Cleanser
The only skin care product you need in the morning. A gentle product that removes make up, cleanses, mmoisturizes and combats aging all in one bottle. Plus, it feels so soft on your skin you will love it.

Ciate Speed Coat
I like painting my own nails, but I am not patient when it comes to the drying process. I think I can count on one hand the times I have manged to avoid a smudged nail, even after 45 mins of waiting for my nails to dry. My problem was solved when I started to use British nail polish brand Ciate. After applying this speed top coat my nails are touch dry after about 1-2 mins. It really works!

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
Doubling up as a concealer and a highlighter this magic stick comes in every shade to suit your skin tone. Feeling light on the skin while being easy to blend makes it great tool when you do not have the time to put a full layer of foundation on. You will still look radiant!

Fekkai Blowout Primer
A quick spray for your hair. The purpose is to prevent breakage of your hair, leave it smooth and speed up blow drying time. Every minute helps in the morning.
Burts’s Bees Sensitive Night Cream
If like me, you are a victim of overly sensitive skin, you will love this product. I can often find throughout the night my skin breaks out. If I cleanse and apply this before I go to bed I tend to wake up with an more even complexation.Hence saving me time in the morning as I do not need to apply complete coverage with make-up.

Living in the desert heat can make you hair extremely dry. This shampoo and conditioner is sulphate and paraben free, thus helping keeping your locks looking fabulous, meaning less time styling in the mornings!

Love this multi-tasking pencil, it lines my lashes, lids and brows. Easy to use, great to do on the go as you just need one pencil to brighten up your eyes to hide the fact you have just rolled out of bed.
