For the record, I carry so much stuff in my handbag and not just my top 5 must-haves essentials but since we’re here to discuss that, I’m going to give you a peek of what my top products are. Products that pretty much live in my bag just because they make my life so much easier and convenient. Excited? Because I am!

1. U by Kotex Heavy Flow Ultra Thin 32ct

The lady stuff. You know know, pads, liners and what not, for those just in case moments. I’ve been a fan of U by Kotex for a while now and it’s the brand I know I can count on (and spend money on with no regrets).

U by Kotex + Kleenex Slim Pack

So imagined my delight when I saw that Walmart was doing an exclusive special offer on U by Kotex and Kleenex Slim Pack! Perfect. I love a good deal and this product is a necessity for me, so of course I had to grab their Ultra Thin double pack featuring their 3D capture core, which prevents those embarrassing moments we all wished we didn’t have to deal with at one point.

That being said, I have a huge pads stash of U by Kotex (including their Lightdays liners) since I believe in ‘always be ready for Aunt Flo.’

5 must-have essentials U by Kotex

2. Kleenex Slim Pack

Tissues! They’re handy for those little messes especially if you have a little bean like mine. Pocket size ones are the best, although I’m not shy to bring a whole box either. Just saying. Get yours → HERE.

3. Petal to the Metal Lip Service Lip Butter by Drew Barrymore (Flower Beauty)

This next pick is a no brainer. A lip product is a definitive must-have in my handbag. And recently I found the perfect one to carry around with me this season, this gorgeous lip butter from Flower Beauty, Drew Barrymore’s own makeup line. I’ve been dying to try at least one of these lippies and was so stoked to finally get one.

4. Summer’s Eve Cleansing Cloths in Island Splash

I always make sure to bring 2 or 3 of this cleansing cloths and I bought a pack (16 individually wrapped cloths) for just $1.67 at Walmart and couldn’t believe how affordable this was. I paid more than this from a different store before. What gives?  Anyway, now I know where to go to stock up next time. Wipes are a big deal especially if I’m out and about. I hate public restroom. There I said it. But there are just times when you gotta go when nature calls. And I never go without this stuff. Never.

5. eos Hand Lotion in Cucumber

Last, but definitely not the least, is this cute everyday hand lotion from eos that keeps my hands from drying out while on the go, especially now that the weather is starting to get colder. The last thing I want is wrinkly or pruney-looking hands. Definitely not a pretty sight.

So, what about you? What are your top 5 must-haves essentials in your handbag? Let’s compare notes.
