Summer is coming to a close (but not before my birthday next week, of course). For those of you returning to or starting at a new school, may these last few weeks of summer sun be good to you.
I wanted to share the items I've carried with me all summer. They've been essentials for a good three months and I'm a bit upset that I'll have to retire some of them soon.
Huge thanks to DedCool and Herbivore Botanicals for sending me these amazing products. First we'll start with DedCool's Chazstick, which I talked about here. It's a lot bigger than your average Chapstick and its application is super smooth. I always kept one in my little Glossier bag and one by my nightstand. I ordered Chazsticks 03 and 04.
Herbivore Botanicals also sent me a facial oil that hasn't left my side all summer. It's their amazing Orchid facial oil. I am in love with the floral scent! I'm also digging travel/sample sizes because they make portability less of a hassle.
As I've said before I'm not a huge make up gal, but I do like to have some light coverage from time to time. My powder from Body Shop (shade 065) gives me a great sun-kissed glow and pairs excellently with the Glossier skin tint. When I carry the powder with me, I also have my Sephora powder brush.
In addition to all the other things I carry with me, I've also got a couple bobby pins, some rings, my glasses cleaner, and maybe a roll-on perfume if I'm feeling fancy. Recently, Libertine Fragrance sent me one of their perfumes in the scent Sex & Jasmine, so that's always tossed in my bag too.
I started using the Glossier resealable bags earlier this summer and I haven't looked back. They're hassle-free, easy to throw in your tote, and can hold all of your small items that would otherwise be lost in your bottomless bag.
These are just some of the various essentials I carry with me 24/7. What's in your bag?
