There are certain beauty products that, packed into your purse, really do make life easier. And we’re not talking about those roomy totes. We’re talking about your every day, already-filled-to-the brim work purses, briefcases, clutches and crossbody bags. Which is why we love the following pocketbook-friendly emergency essentials.
1. A Sunscreen That Won’t Mess Up Your Makeup
This facial sunscreen spray is great because you can spritz it right over our makeup—no rubbing required.
2. A Tiny Bottle of Dry Shampoo
Be prepared to get rid of the greasies the moment they strike with a travel-sized bottle of dry shampoo. A fragranced one will fix a stale hair scent in seconds.
3. Blotting Papers
These blotting papers come in three shades: Translucent, Natural, and Warm Beige. They are also two-sided: you use the matte side to blot away shine, and the powdered side to add some additional touch-up coverage. Genius.
4. A Small Bottle of Scent
When your scent wears off, freshen it up with Kai’s super-potent Perfume Oil (go easy when you apply). Plus, it’s so small it will fit right in your front pocket.
5. A Lip Balm with SPF
Midday chapped lips ruin any chance of a decent reapplication of color. Fresh’s treatment has done wonders for my super-dry lips—I never leave home without it.
6. Discreet Deodorant
Lavanila’s adorably packaged, travel-sized non-deodorant looking deodorants are perfect for your purse. And you get three great scents to choose from: Vanilla Coconut, Pure Vanilla, Vanilla Grapefruit.
