9 New Essentials For Freshening Up On The Go
Mascara running, armpits sweaty, edges nowhere near laid? No matter how you leave the house in the morning, something’s sure to get out of place by the time you’ve sat through three conference calls and need to head out for your potentially life-changing lunch meeting.
Or maybe you’re one of those unicorns who’s disciplined enough to get a workout in in the middle or her work day or you want to look your sexiest for date night (after you run 12 different errands). Whatever occasion calls for sprucing up, freshening up on the go is easier than ever with the latest slew of products to hit the market. Here are a few of our favorites for making sure your pits, pearly whites, and everything else on your body are its freshest.
If most of us had a choice, showering would win hands down when we’re feeling a little icky. But when exercise is life (and so is finding a boyfriend) sacrifices have to be made. Though we wouldn’t exactly call this showerless cleansing mist a sacrifice. The mix of coconut water and mimosa flower leave skin feeling and smelling as fresh as it would post-shower. And you can feel great about choosing this product over your usual water-heavy cleansing method since its completely recyclable, sustainably and ethically sourced, 100% vegan, and contains no parabens, silicones, or sulfates.
We love cleansing with coconut oil but it’s not the most portable thing to carry around. Well it wasn’t, until St. Ives created a line of cleansing sticks made with 100% natural coconut oil. All you have to do is splash your face with water, swipe the stick across your face, massage, rinse, and go. And at 1.59 ounces, it’s perfect for your work bag or carry-on.
Let’s be honest here, removing eye makeup is the devil, especially when it comes to waterproof products. But these makeup remover pads make the process as simple as a swipe, plus they’re kind to sensitive eyes so you won’t get that stinging sensation that usually comes when you take off mascara. And these pads are great for touching up mess ups without wasting a whole makeup remover wipe.
Looking for another way to feel shower fresh without the actual shower? This body spray is your best bet. Plus the floral scent is just enough to refresh without being overpowering.
Refresh your pits without the mess with Dove antiperspirant dry sprays which are completely invisible and leave no white marks on 100 different colors. We especially love this revitalizing mix of cucumber and green tea.
Sometimes toilet paper doesn’t cut it. And for those times there’s Summer’s Eve cleansing cloths which will leave you good as new down below with a balanced pH to boost.
If you’re one of those people who has to brush after every meal, why not do it with a natural toothpaste? This one from Schmidt’s is infused with CoQ10, goji and pomegranate extracts, organic aloe leaf juice, magnolia bark extract, and vitamin E, to freshen breath and whiten teeth.
Don’t want to carry your moisturizer with you? No problem. This facial mist is strong enough to hydrate after washing on the go, but the inclusion of rose water also soothes skin. This mist can also be used as a primer and to set makeup after applying.
