Today I am SO excited to be sharing something very fun with you! If you know me, you will know that I am finishing up my PhD which has a clinical and a research component (More FAQ’s answered HERE) . But.. I live very far from my university and placements which means lots of driving/commuting for me.
So my purse and my car are where I have spent a LOT of time in through my degree. So, here I am sitting in the car on my drive to campus last week, and reaching over for something in my purse and I had a great idea. I thought why not share with you guys, WHAT IS IN MY PURSE?!? What are some of my must-haves in the car when I am on the go?So today, I am sharing my absolute necessities that I do NOT leave the house without any given day. I actually have a small pouch in my bag at all times, with these goodies.
Something I keep in my purse ALL the time is a a small pouch with my essentials below!
My Favourite Hand Cream
Okay.. so its safe to say that on the days I have left the house with Liyana and forgotten to pack diaper rash cream, this was my natural replacement. Because I have one in every purse!! I have been using Naturalene’s Much More Than Bees Wax Skin Care Line by Greeniche for about 4 years now and I am obsessed with them. I keep different sizes of the cream in my purse, car and around the house.
What do I love about it, you may wonder? Well, first its one of the best skin care products I have used! Second, I love that it is unscented and free of artificial colours given how crazy my allergies are. I appreciate that it is rich and creamy but NOT oily… who wants oily hands while driving!? And.. I particularly love that it is made from natural products like jojoba oil (You all know I LOVE jojoba oil so much that I use it as a moisturizer at night.. read about that HERE), vitamin E, Aloe Vera, Chamomile and natural Bees Wax. YUM – sounds amazing right? You absolutely HAVE to try it! Its so good, I have used it even as a diaper rash cream on baby girl and now use it also as part of her after-bath moisture. I told you.. its everywhere in my house 😉 I also took it to the beach and the cottage last weekend, just in case we had sun burns or any other minor cuts etc.
So heres the deal, I love wearing matte lipsticks. But to get a matte lipstick to look incredible, you need smooth, unchapped lips. My lips, on the other hand are quite the opposite. ENTER – this god sent Naturalene Lip Balm by Greeniche . It is SOOO moisturizing without smearing all over my face like some other lip balms and gives a beautiful base to my matte lipsticks.
It is made with all natural, certified organic ingredients like sunflower seed oil, hemp seed oil, vitamin E, rosemary extract and aloe.
It comes in a variety of flavours like vanilla, strawberries and cream and mango tango and they are all gluten free!!! All of
these together in this magical little tube are essential for me, especially in the dry southern ontario weather! I mean, everyone needs one of these in their purses. I also use mine before I go to bed at night so I wake up with super soft lips, ready to take on the world!
On the days that I don’t have time to apply lipstick, but still want smooth soft lips – I have found myself reaching for Naturalene’s All Natural Lip Shimmer. I especially LOVE the colour ‘Sparkling Wine’ because its this pretty nude colour that makes your lips look fuller but not overly shiny, without seeming like you are wearing lipstick. There are also some other fun colours like Polished Pink and a clear lip shimmer as well.
It is again made with all the same ingredients at the lip balm, but has the extra oomph of a lip gloss to it. On days, where I don’t want to do much, I use this with mascara and a touch of blush and thats it – I am all done!
Sunscreen and Sunglasses
Any season of the year, I am ALL about wearing the sunscreen and sunglasses. Gotta protect that skin, right?
Swell Water Bottle
Hydrate, Hydrate Hydrate.. Did I say Hydrate?!?! I have a not-so-secret kitchen cabinet dedicated to water bottles… and it makes drinking water so much more enjoyable!
