With summertime headed our way it’s time to reevaluate the “essentials” we carry in our purse. Plus, who doesn’t want an excuse to start looking for some new lip balm, moisturizer, and maybe even a bold nail polish? As we head into the next warm season, I’ve got a list of summertime purse essentials to keep you calm, cool, and…glamorous.
This is one of my favorite lip balms to ever hit the shelves. Not only does it roll on the lips smoothly, it also comes in a wide variety of colors to give you a little tint and shine. This product promises smoother lips after one week—and I can personally attest to this magic formula. The best part about this product is that it also contains SPF 20, so you don’t have to worry about sun damage.
Warmer weather means more time to spend outdoors. Whether you enjoy walking, running, or just simply hanging out in the summer breeze, having a good pair of headphones is an absolute essential. SkullCandy offers a variety of headphones with different colors, designs, and fits made especially for your listening pleasure. Not to mention, a good new pair of headphones could be a perfect workout incentive!
There’s nothing worse than a painful and red sunburned face. Not only does it look awful, but also it’s horrible for the aging and health of your skin. Finding a moisturizer that’s both hydrating and protective is key to keeping your skin healthy all summer long. This Aveeno face moisturizer offers SPF 15 coverage, in addition to a formula that helps skin glow while reducing dark marks on the face.
This is the perfect solution for a red and splotchy face due to hot weather. The formula is designed to refresh the skin’s complexion, bringing your face back to life with a natural glow. According to Sephora, the spray can also help reduce perspiration, ocean salt, and pool chlorine. The Evian Mineral Spray is also available in a small travel size—perfect for carrying in your everyday purse.
What would summer be without a bright new nail polish? The Dolce & Gabbana nail lacquer is not only bold, but is also designed to be long-lasting. It comes in many different colors so you can dare to be adventurous this summer! My personal favorite is the Passione-magenta, one of the shades that is closely related to this year’s Pantone color of the year—radiant orchid.
