The world is in disarray. From increasing natural disasters to the ongoing public fascination with reality TV stars, it is easy to say the world is not a stable and safe place anymore. Have you considered what you would put in your emergency bag to keep your skin happy and looking good? I have. Check out what is in my go bag below, and please give me feedback on what you would add or subtract for your go bag.
I should say this would also work for the horrors of camping. Yes, that’s right. I dislike camping. But, should you find yourself willingly in the wilderness or evading zombies you are going to want clean skin….
Garnier Micellar Water:
This product does a pretty amazing job of keeping your skin clean and refreshed.
At a price point of less than $10, it is super easy to always keep some on hand and it comes in a travel size. It’s alcohol free and fragrance free so you won’t look like a zombie with red and inflamed skin. This Micellar Water will remove all of your makeup and make you feel like you are still in a civilized place.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask:
This is the world’s most amazing product at making my lips feel soft and protected all night long. With an awesome strawberry scent (available in 4 different yummy smells) this lip mask locks in moisture and saves me from chapped lips. A must in good times and in bad. This product comes from Korean beauty company Laneige, and there is really nothing else like it on the market. Full of Vitamin C/ Berry complex and a unique Moisture Wrap technology that has a time release of the product to keep lips soft and hydrated all night long. No matter the conditions.
Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Gel:
Leaves my skin plump and soft even in the most adverse of conditions. Filled with Hyluronic acid this gel creme will hold in moisture while locking out the stresses of the day. A hydration miracle worker, this would be in my bag for anytime in an emergency.
Neutrogena Wrinkle Repair Cream:
This one step day cream contains Retinol to combat lines and wrinkles, SPF 30 to save the sun damage, Hyluronic acid to hold in Moisture and a Glucose complex to help cells turnover quicker. I have been through 30+ bottles of this cream although it doesn’t do anything for my dark spots I do like that it has SPF built in, works well under makeup and it’s quick.
Soft Lips Lip Moisturizer:
Always have one at hand. ALWAYS. SPF 20 to protect you from the sun. Vitamin E to soothe lips, smells like heaven. This stuff glides on but isn’t sticky or
waxy or oil slicky. I carry it literally everywhere I go. This is one of those products that I break down in tears if I can’t find in Walmart. If you ever wanted a product that is perfect and smells great this is it.
L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara:
This is my daily go to product. It is an exact dupe for the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara at a fraction of the cost.
It gives me big, beautiful lashes in no time flat. The brush is amazing and I can actually get all of the little lashes at the inner corner. Takes my hamster lashes to ostrich length in no time.
Pair this with the Voluminous Primer for lashes that seriously won’t flake or smudge all day long.
These are just the basics in my bag. In an emergency I may not have time to have my foundation perfect, but I will have perfect protected skin and lashes that go on for days. What is in your emergency bag?
