The Best Beauty Products to Keep at Your Desk

The Best Beauty Products to Keep at Your Desk

We all need some beauty rescue at the office from time to time.

Exposure to screens, dehydrating air-con and even just the general stress of day to day life can play havoc with our skin and wellbeing. And with party season upon us, now more than ever we want to look and feel our best for after-work events and the inevitable early starts that follow.

At ELEMIS HQ, deskside beauty is nothing new. A sore neck means a massage with Instant Refreshing Gel while you read through emails; a surprise breakout means a dot of Herbal Lavender Repair Mask while you take a conference call. Whether you’re dashing to a meeting or preparing for a dinner party, having a deskside arsenal of beauty heroes helps you soothe your mind and refresh your skin in an instant.

New to the in-office skincare game? We had a nose around the office to see what our beauty aficionados are keeping on hand this party season…


Among a vast array of yet-to-come products, Team NPD had nail varnishes, S.O.S Emergency Cream, mists and more.

Soothing and comforting, our S.O.S Emergency Cream is an ambulance in a bottle, providing a fast hit of hydration for inflamed, irritated skin. A layer on top of hungover or tired complexions is ideal to help re-balance and repair and also works as a great base for makeup.


Absolute Eye Mask, a vast array of perfumes and tubes of Herbal Lavender Repair Mask were popular in this part of the office.

Enriched with precious extracts of Rose and Mimosa, use Absolute Eye Mask to counteract dullness and dehydration around the delicate eye area. Simply apply sparingly around the eye contour, leave for 8-10 minutes and remove with moistened cotton pads for a brighter, revitalised look.


Located where air con can play havoc with drier skins, Team Finance love a daily spritz of Rehydrating Ginseng Toner followed with an application of Pro-Collagen Marine Cream or Hydra-Balance Day Cream and a touch of Tea Tree S.O.S Spray where needed.

Our cooling Tea Tree S.O.S Spray has powerful anti-bacterial properties to fight infection and can be used on the body to deodorise, on hands and work surfaces to sanitise, or dotted on congested skin to purify and disinfect.


Focusing on bodycare and emotional wellbeing, Team Spas & Salons had bottles of body oil, Instant Refreshing Gel and toner on hand.

Perfect for a 3 o’clock pick me up, our Soothing Apricot Toner helps calm and tone skin, whilst the refreshing scent uplifts and revives. Spray generously over cleansed skin or with a cotton wool pad before moisturising and applying makeup for a fresh and radiant complexion.


Tubs of vitamins and boxes of tea sit alongside Quiet Mind Temple Balm and Cleansing Micellar Water for Team Marketing, while Hydra-Gel Eye Masks are a pretty ubiquitous sight on a Friday afternoon!

Clinically proven to instantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks provide a skin-tightening effect that’s ideal for quick party prep. Simply apply the clear masks to the under-eye area and leave on for 20 minutes.
