My Hair And Body Essentials To Get The Salon Look At Home

As a mum, I am aware of all the time restraints I have when it comes to actually making myself look presentable. I mean, when I'm slumming it at home, I'll scrape my hair back and my face probably won't even see a lick of eyeliner never mind a full face of make up. 

When I'm going out though, it do try to actually make myself look less zombie-like, but having 3 children that take up most of my time and take an absolute age to get ready themselves, it is hard to find the time to look after myself and make me look like the 29 year old young mama I am. 

I mean, who actually has time to sit in a salon for 3 hours with foils in their hair, spend days on end waxing, or doing a full on contour everyday, as I sure as hell don't. 

It's taken a while to find my style, my look and my preferences, and my sensitive skin causes me so much bother too, but eventually, I've rounded up all my favourite products, all those products that help me look presentable in the shortest amount of time.
