Find out which beauty essentials we keep in our bags

Tote bag, handbag, backpack or travel bag — we know you’ve been wondering which beauty heroes we keep in our bags. Allow us to satisfy your curiosity with a sneak peek into our host of everyday companions, drumroll please… 

Woman apply lip balm

Sunnier days are almost upon us and that’s why we’re taking the Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Hue Drops with us everywhere — along with our house keys, of course. Packing a punch of skin-brightening radiance, this buildable bronzing serum works to refine texture over time just like its well-known sibling.   


Sorting out your overnight bag? Deck out your evening and morning skin care routines with glow-enhancing heroes from La Roche-Posay. Dim the lights in the room (but not on your complexion) with the La Roche-Posay Mela B3 Serum, a tone-evening serum formulated to minimise the look of dark spots and post-acne marks. Come sunrise, seal in the radiance-bestowing power with help from the La Roche-Posay Anthelios UVMune 400 Invisible Fluid SPF 50+ Sun Cream. Boasting a hydrating, lightweight texture (thank you, thermal spring waters) this skin care staple shields your complexion from harmful UV rays that could undo your hard work from the night before. 



What great responsibility it is being the friend with the toiletry bag filled with must-have essentials. A dew-ty we take rather seriously around here, mind you. Reporting for radiance from the very first step, the Bioeffect Facial Cleanser offers an innovative gel-to-milk formula designed to gently dissolve make up, SPF and dirt on the surface. Made to quench skin’s thirst and support the barrier thanks to hydrating ingredients like squalane and soft Icelandic water, your routine will be off to a refreshing start.  




…And of all the bags, your make up bag need not be forgotten. Enter: Saie’s Slip Tint Concealer, the multi-tasking marvel that’s ideal for practically any and every look. True to the fabric of the brand’s formulas, this barely-there but always noticed staple offers medium coverage that illuminates the look of dark circles and cancels out redness. With up to 12 hours of staying power, it’s safe to say your on-trend Office Siren look won’t need any touch ups in between meetings.  


We guess only one question remains: which beauty hero do you plan to bag today?
