Handbag Essentials for Spring Days Out

Handbag Essentials for Spring Days Out

This spring, make sure you have all your beauty handbag essentials when you head for days out. We have selected our favourite minis’ to fit into your bag, so that you can still look your best no matter where you are and what you’re doing. What’s more, they are also great for taking away with you on mini breaks, so you can carry more beauty products with less luggage!

Our Favourite Mini Beauty Products for Days Out

With spring in full bloom, and sunshine on the way (hopefully!), we can start to enjoy being outdoors and going for days out with family and friends. Of course, we still want to look our best no matter what we’re doing, so packing your handbag with beauty essentials is a great way of ensuring that you always look fabulous. Plus, as they’re mini products, they are super lightweight so you won’t even notice they’re in there (until you come to realise your lipstick needs topping up!)

Add this mini hand cream to your handbag for intense hydration throughout the day. Hand Chemistry is renowned to be one of the best brands when it comes to caring for the skin on our hands, so this mini version makes us so happy! If your hands are feeling cold or slightly dehydrated, then pop this on straightaway to nourish and prevent damage.

A hairbrush is something we can often forget to put in our handbags, but if you're heading out for the day, it's an absolute essential. Although it might be sunny outside, being in England can bring gusts of wind that leave our hair tangled! This mini brush from Kent is super gentle on the hair but very strong with knots so will leave you with smooth and soft locks,

Don't forget to keep your lips looking lovely on your day out! This trio of mini lipsticks from DuWop is so adorable and the colours are absolutely gorgeous. They adapt to your perfect shade based on your individual colouring. We especially love how lightweight and hydrating they are, which means that you won't need a mirror to apply them - perfect for days out!

Keeping a mini lipbalm in your bag can ensure that your lips don't get chapped throughout the day. We love this one from Korres, which has a light and creamy texture. The pale colour won't stain your lips either so that your lipstick colour shines through perfectly.

Keep this mini perfume in your handbag for when you need a beautiful burst of fragrance. This one from Salvatore Ferragamo contains floral and fruity notes to uplift your mood and keep you smelling lovely. It is also an absolutely gorgeous bottle, so will look good on your dressing table at the end of the day!

On days out, you never know when you'll need to freshen up, so make sure you keep this hand sanitiser from Cowshed in your bag. It smells of Orange and Peppermint, which will keep you uplifted and balanced. Cowshed products are formulated without any nasties too. This sanitiser contains no alcohol, which will keep your skin healthy and hydrated.

Sometimes on days out, you can get tired towards the end, so this treatment from NEOM Organics will help to keep you uplifted. Just rollerball the treatment onto pulse points and behind the ears to perk you up. It's infused with Grapefruit, Rosemary and Lemon, so will lift your mood and give you a great burst of energy!

This is one of Caudalie's bestselling products and its no wonder why. You can use it both in your skincare regime and throughout the day to keep your skin hydrated and fresh. This mini version is great for keeping in your handbag for boosting your glow and keeping your complexion looking radiant and beautiful.

This "everything" balm from Elizabeth Arden is the most multipurpose product we know. It helps soothe minor skin irritations, sunburn, mosquito bites and so much more! This mini version of the original is so perfect to slip into your handbag and pull out when an emergency strikes!

Do not forget your sunscreen! We always advocate wearing an SPF everyday, but it's especially essential when you are spending time outdoors. This small bottle is great for both face and body, and is completely hypoallergenic and free from parabens; making it great for sensitive skin types.

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
