7 essentials every woman should carry in her purse
By Brittany Anas
If you’re like us, your purse is filled with gum wrappers and a lot of stray receipts (which you’ve been meaning to organize before tax day). Take a few minutes to clear out the clutter from your purse and make room for the essentials — from beauty supplies to those little things that you always find yourself digging for in that cavernous handbag.
You can find all of these essentials at Drugstore.com, where you’ll earn up to 5 percent Cash Back on your purchase when you shop with ShopAtHome.com.
- Evian spray: This is our go-to beauty-in-a-bottle fix. If you’ve ever wished you could preserve that “fresh face” you leave the house with in the morning, you’ll want to give this mineral water spray a try. Mist it on your face to help set your make-up in the morning, and then give your skin a quick spray a couple of times during the work day. It works to hydrate and wake up tired skin and keep you glowing throughout the day.
- Lip exfoliator: This $3 secret weapon from ELF will come to the rescue if your lipstick isn’t reapplying evenly because your lips are chapped. Simply remove your lipstick, give yourself a quick exfoliation, apply chapstick and reapply your lipstick. This exfoliator is infused with shea butter, Vitamin E, avocado and grape and jojoba oils.
- A stamped envelope. Tuck one in a side pocket of your purse. That way, you won’t have to stop and buy an individual envelope or yet another book of stamps when it dawns on you that you need to mail out the HOA check or send off an expense report. (Why can’t everything just be done online, already?)
- Tide to go. Nobody will ever know that you dribbled coffee on your blouse on your way into work. These pens are a great way to zap stains before they ever settle in.
- Burt’s Bees Aloe and Witch Hazel Hand Sanitizer. Unlike the alcohol-based hand sanitizers, this one is made with Witch Hazel, an astringent and antispetic that won’t dry out your hands. It also has Aloe Vera for added smoothness.
- Small notepad and pen: For when those genius ideas strike or your need to write down a reminder.
- A supply of quarters: You’ll find yourself wanting some loose change the next time you’re at parking meter or trying to use a debit card at a convenience store that has a $2 minimum for purchases made with cards.
