These are the products that I always keep in my purse and refuse to leave the house without! It might seem like a lot of stuff, but I like to carry a bigger “black hole” kind of purse most of the time. Almost all of these are probably really obvious and what every girl keeps in her purse but I thought it would be fun to share!
Lip Balm/ Chapstick- My lips are always really dry so I absolutely must have chapstick or a good lip balm on me at all times! I really love the little Vaseline Lip Therapy in the “rosy lips” shade. It is really tiny and easy to throw in my purse, but is the best for moisturizing dry lips!
Lipgloss- I love to throw a neutral shade of the NYX Butter Gloss in my purse before I leave home just in case I need to retouch throughout the day, or just want to enhance my appearance when I am not wearing any makeup at all. I have said this so many times on my blog already, but I love the NYX Butter Glosses!
Hand Lotion- I cannot live without a good hand lotion! I love the ones from E.O.S. and they are a great size for traveling! They make my skin feel moisturized without leaving them greasy or sticky at all. The scents are also amazing! I also keep travel- sized one from Gold Bond because it works really well and I am high maintenance (lol).
Origins Zero Oil Mattifyer- I mentioned this product in my recent favorites blog post and it has become a permanent addition to what I keep in my purse! This is a liquid to powder formula that you dab onto your skin (with or without makeup) and it instantly mattifies any shiny or oily areas. This product has been a life saver especially in the summer heat. I also like to keep tissues (if I do not have blotting sheets) in my purse as well just in case.
Travel- Sized Perfume- This is another obvious one, but definitely something I need to have with me! I like to throw in a couple of roll- on perfumes just in case because they are easy to apply and a more subtle way to put on perfume in public places.
Bobby Pins/ Hair Tie/ Hair Clip- Again these are pretty obvious but, especially with the heat, I like to have these on hand just in case my hair is giving me a hard time and I just need to get it out of my face. Also, if it is on the windy side, I like to use these to keep my hair from getting stuck in my lipgloss!
Non- beauty products that I also keep in my purse:
- Hand Sanitizer (the mini ones from Bath & Body Works, of course)
- A travel- sized first aid kit that has band- aids, Neosporin, etc.
- A few packs of disinfectant wipes
- A pen and a Sharpie (you never know when you might need one!)
- Gum/ mints
