As a beauty blogger it’s pretty much a given that my dressing table/beauty corner is a little over run with things. Be it make-up, perfume, moisturisers and hair care, there’s always something that doesn’t seem to have a home and is just lying around or needing to be stashed in the drawer. As such, I love anything that can help me be a bit more organised when it comes to my beauty station, if you will. When I was approached by Minky to try out their styling dock, I jumped at the chance.
The product comes in a really sleek box which gives you all of the information you need and not too much overly excessive packaging, which I really hate so instant like from me. The dock gives you three separate pots to pop your electrical products in, which is perfect for me as I currently have a hair dryer, straighteners and curling wand. The main part of the dock is soft rubber so you can instantly tell it will be heat resistant and great for popping your straighteners in whilst they’re still cooling down. I didn’t have any sort of organisation for these products before and so they were just strewn around my dressing table and the surrounding floor area…yes I’ve been known to stand on them, ouch! The dock comes with a few little bits that you have to attach yourself, but these are super easy as they just clip on. My favourite part of this is that there are two little pots on the front for keeping your hair grips, bobbles, ties etc. What a bonus as who can say they’ve ever kept a full pack of hair grips? One of them is even split into two little sections so you could keep maybe two different colours of grips or two different kinds of bobbles? SO. ORGANISED.
I was so excited when I realised it also came with cable tidies. I’m one of those people who loves a gadget but hates seeing the wires protruding from the back of the TV unit, there’s nothing worse. The cable tidies for this sit neatly on the back of the dock and you can actually pop the plug in there totally out of the way and a great way to remember to actually unplug your product! These are also removable so you bet ya I’ll be taking them off and throwing them in my suitcase to keep my dryer and straighteners neat and tidy in there when I go away. The dock even comes with a clip hook on the back so that if you’re really pushed for space you can hang the dock from a rail. It’s genius really.
It’s not rose gold or marble, but the sleek black does go with anything and I quite like it just out on the top of my side board, however you could pop it away in a cupboard if you wanted and still feel like and organised queen.
The product retails for £30 and is available here.
