In honor of the Labor Day holiday I have decided to dedicate a feature to beauty that requires very little effort on your end. Products that will have you looking and feeling your best without you barely having to lift a finger. I am sure most of us have a beauty routine or product that takes a long time or a lot of effort to do. For me to blow dry my hair it takes an entire hour. Some days I just want something effective and simple something I can do without breaking a sweat and I can think of no better way to celebrate Labor Day then to devote it to products that require very little labor.
