I’m sharing #Aveeno®advocates in my life as a sponsored series for Socialstars™.
While summer is supposed to be the season that we unwind and spend a bunch of time on the beach reading chick lit under a huge floppy hat, in reality, it’s more like one of the most constantly on-the-run, busiest times of year. I feel like this year especially, I am really struggling to find a balance between work and play. I am doing a lot more freelancing than is usual for me in the summer, which means that if I want to fit in some downtime to catch rays while floating around on my giant inflatable swan (this is not a joke, I love that thing, haha), I am constantly rushing around to get things done.
So, because of the madness that is my life during the summer, I keep a little “on the go” kit in my car that takes me from work to swim & sun to a dinner out, all without leaving me looking and feeling like a total mess.
First things first- something I firmly believe in carrying around with me whenever possible… face wipes! These Aveeno Positively Radiant makeup removing wipes have a cleansing oil-like consistency and remove makeup easily and gently. They are perfect for cleaning up any eye makeup that may have ran or smudged at any point in the day and just generally making my skin feel a million times more fresh.
Any long-haired girl in their right mind would never leave the house without an elastic and some bobby pins, however, I am often not in my right mind and I am constantly forgetting these (most especially in the times that I really need them), haha. Having them in the little kit that stays in my car makes my life so much easier when the water or humidity has turned my hair into a fluff ball. I like to stash a hairbrush in there too for when I’ve gone for a swim- as much as I wish it did, my hair definitely doesn’t make for cute, unbrushed messy buns, haha.
Other absolutely must-haves: a snack (I’m one of those people who just can’t do life if I haven’t eaten in a while), concealer (because no one needs to be seeing my dark circles, obviously), q-tips (so good for quickly cleaning up smudged makeup), a facial mist (my skin driiiinks these right up) and sunglasses.
Last, but definitely one of the most important things in my whole on the go kit, is the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15. Moisturizer + SPF combos are my favorite, because it means I save thirty seconds of my life every morning and don’t need to carry around multiple products during the day when I need a reapplication. Like every other Aveeno product ever, this is super gentle and my dry skin absolutely loves it. Not only do I keep this on hand when I’m out of the house, but I also have a separate bottle at my vanity for use every morning!
What would you consider your “on the go” essentials?
