We all have those days: you hit the snooze button one too many times only to end up running (super) late for an early meeting, the school run, or a 7 a.m. yoga class. Instead of scrambling to put yourself together, keep a stash of products ready for whenever you need to fresh on the move. Not sure what products to keep on hand? We’ve picked three beauty saviours from our very own brand ARROW that fit perfectly inside your handbag/gym bag/glove box, so you can get ready – fast – wherever you’re going.
The epitome of double-duty beauty is a dual lip and cheek tint – it’s an easy way to instantly liven up your complexion with minimal effort. While, technically speaking, the ARROW BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm is just what it says on the tube – a lip balm – we’ve found that its colour-adjusting formula is also great at adding a pretty flush of colour to your cheeks. The high-tech formula adjusts to your unique pH to create the perfect, just-for-you hue. Plus, it’s packed with nourishing ingredients like mango seed butter to hydrate and protect your lips and skin. Its totally finger-friendly, meaning you don’t need to keep a bulky brush on hand to apply it. Just swipe it straight onto your lips from the tube, or dot onto the apples of your cheeks and blend towards your hairline using your fingertips.
How to look bright-eyed and busy-tailed, even when you’re not? While mascara might be your first thought, it turns out that taking a minute to pay attention to your brows can do wonders for making your whole face look more wide-awake and put-together. The ARROW SCULPT Tinted Brow Gel takes just seconds to apply but adds shape and definition to unruly or sparse brows, helping them to appear fuller in moments. Just run the brush through your brows, using short upward strokes, to achieve your desired effect. The best thing is that the hard-working formula will stay put through even the sweatiest of workout sessions, so you can trust that your brows will look polished all day long.
As the saying goes, never let ’em see (or smell!) you sweat. Thankfully, with the odour-busting ARROW PROTECT Aluminum-Free Deodorant, they won’t. Formulated without aluminium or alcohol, it won’t clog pores so you can re-apply as much as you need throughout the day. The zesty scent (a mix of pink grapefruit, mint leaf, and ginger flower) not only neutralises odours but it’s an instant mood-booster – helping to rejuvenate your body and mind, no matter where you are. Bonus: it’s compact size is ideal for throwing in your work bag, gym bag, or handbag for last-minute refreshers.
