Sometimes I forget how much I love bags. I love the purpose a bag serves; not only to carry everything you need, but also to hide your smaller possessions from the outside world. I’m intrigued by what people carry in their bags and I know many of you are as well, which is why our What’s In His/Her Bag posts are a reader favorite.
My own bag shocks me sometimes. I don’t have a perfectly curated bag; I have a bag that is being used by a normal human, and sometimes I open it and find countless receipts and random items.
While many other things have come and gone inside of my bag over the past few weeks, there have been 3 products I’ve continued to use. Here’s a look at each and a bit of info on why I love them so much!
La Prairie Anti-Aging Eye & Lip Perfection à Porter
$160 via Nordstrom
La Prairie is one of my favorite beauty brands, and this is my second eye and lip pot I’m on. I carry this in my bag for a variety of reasons: first, the product is lovely, and second, there’s a mirror included and I like to look at a mirror versus instead of trying to use my phone’s front-facing camera. There is one portion that provides eye cream-gel and the other section is a protective lip balm. Both are designed to hydrate, and I like the lip balm best, mostly because I can feel the results of the product right as I apply it.
Avène Eau Thermale
$18.50 via Amazon
There are a few portable mineral water mists that people like, but I got a three-pack of this travel size and really like it. The only ingredient listed is water and nitrogen, so don’t think you’re getting much more, but a fine mist is a great refresher when your skin gets dry during the cold winter months, when you’re traveling, when you’re getting ready for bed or in warm weather when you need a refresh.
GoGo SqueeZ Applesauce on the Go Apple Peach
$35 via Amazon
I’m not entirely sure if this is a kids snack, but it doesn’t really matter, because it packs easily and I love it. There are a few different flavors, but I prefer the Apple Peach option. These squeeze packs are great snacks and do not need to be refrigerated. I end up stuck in traffic or running behind when I’m out and having one of these with me is great. GoGo SqueeZ packs are organic, 100% fruit, gluten, nut and dairy free, and so good.
