Handbag ESSENTIALS!

Tuesday, April 23, 2013


I was never really a person who used to carry around the same things in my bag. I'd always just take whatever rubbish was in there and hope there' be something in it if I wanted it! However I literally take these three items everywhere with me now.

Soap & Glory Hand Maid Gel
An anti-bacterial hand gel is an absolute must for my handbag and this one smells so good!! I put some on even when I don't need to just so I can smell it aha. Its the perfect size for travelling around with and its just such a great item to keep your hands clean while out and about!

Korres Lip Butter in 'Guava'
I seriously love these lip butters, so gutted that I lost my Pomegranate one. They have a really velvety smooth feel to them, non greasy and super hydrating on the lips. I always find myself needing some sort of lip balm when out and about and this one does the job perfectly. A little pricey at £7 but so worth it in my opinion.

Sanctuary Hand Cream
I've only recently discovered this after going through some gift sets that I got for Christmas; at first I thought nothing of it and just chucked it in my bag because I was in need of a hand cream. However after trying it out I probably wouldn't go for any other. It smells gorgeous as do all Sanctuary products and leaves hands so soft and smooth. This is certainly not greasy, it soaks in so well, yet moisturises amazingly. 

What are your handbag essentials?

  2. I love Korres lip balms, there must be a curse with the pomegranate ones though because my lid cracked when I went to Paris and it's ruined :(
