Five handbag essentials for power women on-the-go
Whatever it is you do for a living, a 21st century power woman is never without her trusty handbag – so here’s a handy list of handbag essentials that you should never be without!
Figs & Rouge 100% Organic Pomegranate Balm – £3.71 – feelunique.com
This Figs & Rouge lip, face and body balm is nourishing, moisturising and easily absorbed. 100% certified organic, it’s an excellent travel balm, plus heavenly scented and beautifully packaged. A favourite of Emma Watson, who loves organic skincare, Figs & Rouge balms also come in Peppermint & Tea Tree, Rambling Rose, Coco Vanilla, Wild Cherry and more delicious flavours.
Oral B Satin Tape Mint – £2.10 – Boots
We all agree that girls should never be without some sort of breath freshener and Oral B Satin Tape is said to be the best dental floss ever used. Unlike thin, stringy floss, the soft tape makes flossing completely pain-free. Perfect for food-in-your-teeth emergencies – it’s better to have a quick floss in the loos than turn up to a meeting after lunch with something stuck in your teeth – because people really won’t tell you!
Soap & Glory Hand Maid Antibacterial Cleansing Gel – £2.50– Boots
If you’re a woman on the go, chances are you commute. With public transport comes the added worries of hygiene – how many others have held onto that same pole for dear life? A simple solution – your hand sanitizer is your best friend! This fruity and floral scented mini-sized one from Soap & Glory is perfect for travel use.
Elastoplast Disney Princess plasters – £3.19 – Boots
We love heels, but heels don’t love us – a woman on the go likely has the evidence to prove it! Soothe those blisters with these cute Disney Princess plasters.
Creme de Pistache Hand Creme – Laura Mercier – £13
Moisturising your hands is just as important as your face, but we often forget. Keeping a hand cream in your bag is not only a welcome reminder, but Laura Mercier’s version, a deeply penetrating that leaves skin velvety smooth, inspired by the delicious aroma of pistachio desserts, makes moisturising your hands a wonderful treat!
