Desk Drawer Essentials

Desk Drawer Emergency Products

Beyond the makeup bag, keeping a small, permanent arsenal in your desk drawer in the office is perfect for emergencies—the unexpected post-work drinks, the huge meeting you completely forgot about, the suddenly-blasting heat system that’s left your skin itchy dry and irritated. A spritz of skin mist or a oil rub re-invigorate and re-inspire you in a way that yet-another flat white can’t. So why not make your office drawer a mini sanctuary?

WIPES

De-grime and moisturize all at once with these delicate, cloths; in a pinch, you can also clean your computer screen and sunglasses, wipe away smudging eye makeup, and more.

FACE OIL

When the 4pm slump hits and you’d normally pile on makeup, run a little face oil between your fingers and gently pat into your skin (avoid mascara and other makeup, though if it smudges, the oil makes the smudge easier to wipe away). It’ll revive and renew your makeup in a way that’s nothing short of miraculous—as it infuses your skin with moisture, plumping and smoothing lines.

SUNBLOCK

You wash your hands all the time; assess any older person’s hands, and you’ll see they suffer disproportionately from sun damage. So every time you wash your hands, rub a little SPF between the back of your hands. This one not only protects, it beautifully moisturizes.
