Whether you need a beauty touch-up midday or needed to get out the door 10 minutes ago and don’t have time to make breakfast, we all have moments when a few quick fixes would do the trick. I’ve found the best grab-and-go products are the ones that make the greatest impact with as little effort as possible.
Andalou Naturals Ultra Sheer Daily Defense with SPF 18
This is an all-in-one face moisturizer that provides UVA/UVB protection, fruit stem cells for skin renewal and repair, plus an age-defying berry complex. I’ve been using this for over a year. That alone tells you I’m committed. It’s also really sheer and lightweight, so you can wear it under makeup or by itself.
Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner
For instant and long-lasting softness, this leave-in conditioner is the perfect hair fix. I apply it all throughout my hair, just after showering. If you have time to blow dry, great. If not, let it air dry and still enjoy extra body and weightless moisture for the day ahead.
Honeybee Gardens Eye Liner in Blue Jeans
You could have nothing but this teal-tinted pencil and not worry for a second about looking like you only got three hours of sleep last night. That’s how much of an impact this little guy has. Not only will you look amazingly wide-eyed and bushy-tailed, this is a paraben-free formula that won’t irritate even sensitive, not-ready-for-the-sunshine eyes.
thinkThin® Protein Bars
When making breakfast isn’t going to happen, these gluten-free protein bars are perfect in a pinch. Peanut Butter and White Chocolate flavors have been my favorites, because they taste sinfully delicious. They have no sugar and 20 grams of protein, so I’m full for hours. The thinkThin® Crunch White Chocolate Dipped Mixed Nuts Bars are also good. They don’t have as much protein but make for a good afternoon snack.
