Some people feel naked without jewelry; we feel naked without a plethora of beauty products in our purse. So, we thought it only necessary to reflect on what products we truly need to cease the day. No matter we’re running to the spin class, grocery shopping in TriBeca or bouncing between meetings, the following items will keep you looking, smelling and feeling fresh, ready for anything the day brings. (And surprise, you need way less than you think).

Summer is approaching and so is New York City Transit B.O.

Made with all-natural ingredients, essential oils and coconut milk, these wipes deliver real results (Buh-bye, perspiration!) and smell so good you’ll want to eat them. Plus, they conveniently fit in any sized purse.
Glossier Lip Gloss
As the saying goes, “As long as your lips are shiny, you don’t need any other makeup on your face.” This Lip Gloss is formulated with Vitamin E, so it will enhance and nourish your lips by giving them pure shine without any other color or glitter. This is the perfect lip product to carry around because whether you are doing errands or handling work meetings, with one quick swipe across your lips, you’ll look sophisticated and put together.
