A girl’s bag is always full of surprises, nothing is left unattended to from contact cards to passport photos, keys, powerbank, and all the beauty items you could possibly think of. I happen to not be an exception to this rule because I am guilty of having way too much and sometimes way too little in my bag. However, I’ll keep it simple and give you a sneak peek of my top 7 beauty/sanitary items and why I  always have them!


1. The Body Shop Lip Butter (Strawberry): I am one of those people who is hardly ever without a lip balm. This particular one was part of a gift set and I absolutely love it, it locks moisture in and keeps the lips supple.

2. Bobby Pins: Perfect for tucking away stray hair strands and for transforming any hair style. Also, you never know when a fellow sister might need one! 


3. PCA Skin Sunscreen: This sunscreen is the sunscreen of sunscreens, it gives a lovely matte finish, very light weight and really perfect for my oily skin.

4. Zaron XOXO Sheer Tint Powder: This powder is translucent, truly compact, great for blotting excess oils and giving you a fresh look. It can literally fit into the tiniest of bags, comes with a small puff and a mirror which means you can do without a brush. A few dabs here and there and you’re good to go!


5. La Vie Est Belle by Lancome:  In English means “Life is Beautiful” which is really apt because there’s a certain confidence that comes with smelling nice. I love this particular perfume because it’s very feminine, sweet and demure. I always have a travel size perfume, some vials or oils in my bag. That way, I’m never caught unfresh!

6. Gloss in Love by Lancome: Gloss! Gloss!! More Gloss!!! I love glosses, especially clear ones because they can be worn without fuss. This gloss comes with an applicator that makes it even easier to wear, lasts long, and gives a youthful sophisticated look which I’m totally into!

7. Bath & Body Works Hand Sanitizer – Way before Ebola and Covid-19 I have had hand sanitizers in my bag because I’m a lowkey germophobe. I’m currently using this one from Bath and Body Works in Sweet Pea, got to keep the germs at bay!

There you have it, 7 beauty/sanitary items you can always find in my bag. Let me know what beauty items are always in your bag!

You will always find a facial wipe in mine!

    To be honest I had wipes on my initial list but they were more disinfecting wipes than facials wipes.

Body shop lip balms are always amazing. I currently have one in my car

    admin · March 29, 2020 at 7:40 pm

    Lol! Perhaps we should start a Body Shop Lip Balm group?

    Thanks for stopping by Olufemi!

Blotting Paper!!!!!
A book (any kind, but there just usually is a book😏and yes I know this isn’t a beauty item😌😋)

    admin · March 29, 2020 at 7:49 pm

    Oh yes! My fellow oily sister… blotting is a must! Although I haven’t owned blotting paper in years, I typically use my pocket tissue or the Zaron translucent powder.

      I literally have a mini makeup bag that contains almost everything(I’m a big bag girl😊), chewing gum, perfume, sunscreen and a hair brush.

        admin · April 14, 2020 at 10:55 pm

        Oh, it sure sounds like you’ve got everything on lock… at least I know who to turn to when I need stuff!

I usually have a mini powder set and hand cream for when it is time to shake hands.

    admin · April 14, 2020 at 10:57 pm

    Got to keep those palms moisturized, say no to crusty hand shakes.

    Thanks for stopping by Kaykay!

I definitely can’t do without my Nivea watermelon lip balm (actually my latest obsession) Body shop hand cream, miniature perfume and of course a slightly tinted lip gloss.

    admin · April 19, 2020 at 11:41 am

    Hey Evie!

    Now I’m definitely getting the Nivea lip balm, seems everyone loves it…

    Thanks for stopping by.

Those bobby pins though! Those can be literally life saving!
For me, it would have to be the bank card, lip balm and my keys. 😉

    admin · April 20, 2020 at 12:43 am

    LOL! Unsung heroes.
