When was the last time you gave your handbag a proper declutter à la Marie Kondo? Set some time aside this week to refresh your purse: toss out those old slips, get rid of those expired spa vouchers and remove any other unnecessary bulk. Swap them out for multitasking beauty products that’ll perk your spirits right up instead.
Beauty doesn’t have to be bulky, so we’ve rounded up our favourite handbag essentials so you can keep up with your beauty routine, even when you’re on the go.
Sisley Paris Floral Facial Mist: This mist isn’t just an ordinary mist. It moisturises, tones and soothes tired-feeling skin after a long day. It takes up barely any room in your bag and helps remove make-up.
Prai Beauty Ageless Hand Creme: Ingredients such as shea butter, hylauronic acid and macadamia oil make up the formula of this super-moisturising hand cream. It absorbs easily into the skin, leaving no residue, and helps fade the appearance of age spots. A must for every handbag.
Origins Super Spot Remover Acne Treatment Gel – 10ml: This dynamite definitely comes in a small package and we love how quickly it works. Pop this acne treatment gel onto that looming, pesky pimple and dry it out before it has a chance to ruin your day. It contains 1.5% salicylic acid that helps keep your pores clean and free from excess oil.
Clarins Total Eye Revive: The best disguise for tired eyes and it’s so easy to use! Apply three strokes of the product under each eye, from the inner corner to the outer corner, using the cooling cryo-metallic tip, and watch your eyes transform before, er, your very eyes.
Dior Addict Lip Tint in 541 Natural Sienna: Lip tints are probably the most versatile lip products because of how buildable their formulas are. The more you apply, the more intense the colour becomes. Keep this shade in your bag to add a pop of colour and refresh your make-up look throughout the day.
Miss Dior Rose N Roses Hair Mist 30ml: Now your hair has the opportunity to smell like Miss Dior too! This special hair mist has notes of the exquisite Damask Rose, Grasse Rose, geranium, Italian mandarin and white musk. It’s the ideal handbag size as a 30ml and we love that each spritz protects your hair from environmental elements.
