Handbag Beauty Bits

Handbag Beauty Bits
Amongst the receipts, train tickets, chewing gum and tangled headphones you'll find a small supply of beauty products in my Zara Mansur Gavrielesque bucket bag, that I ensure are always on hand when I'm out and about. Needless to say you won't find anything particularly groundbreaking, but shareworthy nevertheless...

The Body Shop Glazed Apple Hand Cream £4.00
Whilst I understand I must use hand cream on a regular basis to protect against the wear and tear of everyday life, I often forget to drench my hands in the stuff. So in a bid to do so, I bought myself the best smelling hand cream available, glazed apple. Unfortunately no longer available (Christmas range), this hand cream from The Body Shop not only smells intoxicatingly good, it's moisturising (although won't cut the mustard if your hands are like sandpaper), absorbs instantly and is non-greasy.

Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Powder £12.00
I'm not one to touch up my makeup throughout the day and although I don't have particularly oily skin, my t-zone does have the tendency to get a little shiny and when it does, I like to mattify with Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Powder. The translucent pressed powder is housed in a slim compact with a mirror and applied to the skin it doesn't interfere with my makeup and leaves my skin shine free and smoother in appearance. The compact comes with a sponge, which I have been using up until now. However, it's looking a little grubby and needs replacing with a travel friendly brush - any suggestions? 

Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Liquid Lipstick in Serenity £9.50
I won't harp on. We all know how much I love this liquid lipstick from Gerard Cosmetics. To put it simply it's an one-swipe wonder, offering an opaque, comfortable, seriously long lasting nude pout. And not only has the price been reduced from £11.50 to £9.50, there are now 11 shades to choose from online at Beauty Bay *squeals with excitement*. You can read my full review with swatches here.

LUSH Honey Trap Lip Balm £6.75
Besides the fact I sometimes struggle to get the screw tin open, I have no complaints. Firstly, LUSH Honey Trap Lip Balm smells incredible due to its formulation of honey, peppermint, vanilla and white chocolate extract and secondly, it works! The rich balm leaves my lips smooth and moisturised. 

Chanel Mirror £26.00
My Chanel mirror was a gift from Mum to me Christmas just gone. And since it's arrival, it's taken pride and place inside my handbag. Why? A mirror is essential and it is Chanel after all... 

Carex Fun Bubblegum Hand Gel £1.45*
Now for something else sweetly scented, Carex have released a few "Fun Editions" of their hand sanitisers. And having just recently made my way through their Strawberry Laces hand gel, I was thrilled (yes thrilled) to receive their Bubblegum edition. And boy, it smells just like blue bubblegum balls. Now it's essential to have clean hands on the go and Carex hand gel kills 99.9% of bacteria so ideal before and after tucking into a Five Guys burger and fries! Carex fun editions are available at Boots and Superdrug as well as Supermarkets. Carex also have a bubblegum hand wash to match, which I can imagine works a treat at encouraging kids to wash their hands. 

Tangle Teezer £10.60
All hail the detangling kings of the beauty kingdom the Tangle Teezer. The brush fits snugly in the palm of my hand and handbag and ever since my first Tangle Teezer purchase back in 2013 I very rarely reach for anything else. No matter what your hair type, this brush reduces breakage, splitting and damaging whilst making detangling less of a pain. 

What beauty bits do you carry with you?
