I have quite a busy life and therefore I’m on the go quite a lot. Because I’m on the go such a lot, I collected quite a few essentials over time. For today’s post I thought it’d be nice to show you guys which products I take with me in my bag when I go somewhere. If you’re interested in finding out which products I’m talking about and why I take them with me, make sure you keep on reading!
Let’s start off with a very obvious essential: a lipbalm. I tend to have pretty dry lips all year round, so I can’t leave the house without having a lipbalm by my side. I have quite a lot of lipbalms and I like altering between the ones I have, but one of my favourite ones for on the go is the Rosebud Salve in Minted Rose.
The reason why I prefer taking this one with me is because it’s also amazing for dry patches. So if my elbows (for example) are dry, I can put a bit of this balm on it and I’m good to go.
I also always have one of my Baby Lips with me, preferably one from the Dr. Rescue collection. This because I really like tinted lipbalms and this range is just my favourite. I think tinted lipbalms are perfect for on the go because they give you moisture as well as a pop of colour.
Next up are some blotting sheets. I got mine off of Ebay because I think it’s rediculous to pay lots of money for sheets like this. I mean toilet paper works just as fine, but that’s just a little impractical to take with you in your purse.
Because I have quite oily skin blotting sheets are an essential for me. I can’t live without them. Whenever I feel like my skin is getting out of hand I just grab one of these sheets, press it against my face and the shine is gone. It’s way easier and quicker than using powder.
I don’t always take a perfume with me when I leave the house, but when I do I usually take the Zoella Let’s Spritz Fragranced Body Mist with me. This is my all time favourite perfume. If I don’t know what to use, this is the perfume I go for.
I like this one for on the go because it’s not too heavy, it goes with every mood and it’s appropriate for every occasion. If that doesn’t make it the perfect on the go product, I don’t know what does.
Another product I just need to have in my bag is a hand cream. My favourite hand cream is the The Body Shop Pink Grapefruit Hand Cream. I’m quite picky when it comes to hand creams. I want them to be super moisturising, they need to be light weight and they need to sink in very quickly. To top that off it has to smell great too.
This hand cream is all of that and more. It’s super light weight, it sinks into the skin super quickly and it smells absolutely amazing. I also really like the way it makes my hands feel like new. It makes my hands so incredibly soft, I love it!
My last on the go essential is my MAC lipstick in Peach Blossom. If you ever see me wearing a nude lipstick, there is a 90% chance it’s Peach Blossom. I think Peach Blossom is just the most versatile and most amazing nude lipstick in the world. It goes with every look, it’s appropriate for every occasion and it feels really, really nice on the lips. I love it!
And that concludes today’s post. I hope you enjoyed reading it and be sure to let me know which products you can’t leave the house without!
