These days, what woman wouldn’t call herself a girl on the go? Whether it’s rushing from a class to a party, the office to a dinner, or some other combination of work and play, there’s no doubt life only gets busier from here. If your schedule is jam-packed, chances are your bag is, too. Which got us thinking: It’s about time we reevaluated what comes with us literally everywhere. From double-duty beauty to big fixes in small packages, we’ve rounded up our favorite on-the-go products — and managed to keep it to a minimum (because overflowing totes aren’t exactly functional or trendy).
The Do-It-All Lip Fix
Pick a lip product that offers the color of lipstick but the protection of balm: Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Colour Balm makes it so you have everything you need in one, rather than taking up precious purse space.
Your Go-To Hand Healer
Don’t get caught far from home with itchy, uncomfortable hands and nowhere to turn. The Body Shop Mini Hemp Hand Protector hydrates with hemp seed oil and is dermatologist-approved for the driest skin.
The Skipped Shower Solution
There comes a day when every woman thanks her lucky stars for dry shampoo. Oscar Blandi Travel-Size Pronto Dry Shampoo Sprayeliminates the need to choose between being on time and having great hair no matter where you are.
If you’re one to put on makeup in the car (but never while driving, of course!), a light and easy-to-blend foundation will speed up the process and leave less evidence of your shortened beauty routine. Try a cream base with long-lasting hydration like Maybelline Dream Smooth Mousse.
Keep a small bottle of anti-frizz serum handy like L’Oréal EverSleek Sulfate-Free Smoothing System Frizz Taming Crème Serum for silky, flyaway-free hair. Crisis averted.
The Clean Slate
KORRES Pomegranate Cleansing & Make Up Removing Wipes are formulated without harmful chemicals or harsh toxins and will have you squeaky clean whether you’re travelling or simply planning to head to the gym after work.
