I find the contents of my purse to be ever evolving according the time of year as well as my current needs. These are five products in rotation at the moment that make me feel better prepared for when I'm out and about. And yes I have been toting these items in my recently acquired Truffle Clarity Clutch which I adore.
Squelch is a natural, scentless odor remover. This wasn't a product I thought I needed until I tried it out. It comes in this convenient and portable spray and is great for any multitude of uses like freshening up my clothes, bag or even hair when I'm on the go. Korean BBQ happens to be one of my favorite meals but the scent it leaves behind on everything can sometimes be a little overwhelming and pervasive. With Squelch, I can indulge and easily spritz away the odor instead of feeling self conscious that everyone on the train will know what I just ate. It's safe and effective and I like how it actually removes odors instead of just masking them. It doesn't stain and is really affordable so you can also easily stash a spray at home, work and in your bag.
I always have some kind of hand cream in my bag because I hate to have dry hands after washing them outside especially during the winter months. I look for hand creams that provide long lasting hydrating without feeling greasy and this one does just that. I didn't care for the scent at first but I quite like it now.
Hand sanitizer is a must because germs are everywhere. This plant based one comes in handy spray form and doesn't contain tricolsan (an active antibacterial ingredient that has been found to be unsafe) or parabens. It gets the job done without leaving my hands sticky or super dry.
The first time I ever saw skin mists in action was in Korean dramas and everyone in those has the most flawless skin even the guys. Since trying my first facial mist, I get it. This one from Tatcha is my current favorite and not just because the bottle is gorgeously luxurious. The spray itself is refreshing and amazing for boosting hydration and imparts a lovely dewy finish. The only thing I don't like about this product is probably the price.
If I may confess, I might have bought this because of the truly stunning compact but I actually love the blur perfector as well. It's a wondrous balm to kind of powder product that actually makes my skin look smooth and poreless. I actually use it lieu of powder as it cuts shine without drying out my face. And since it doesn't disturb existing makeup, it's perfect for touch-ups.
Do you carry any of these products? What are some of your purse essentials?
