Winter Handbag Essentials
Winter is a time for giving, a time for sharing, a time for caring. With all the festive merriment filling the air sometimes it’s easy to forget to look after yourself and what essential products you should have safely packed away within your handbag! But fear not, Mozimo have compiled a list of winter handbag essentials you need to get you through the colder seasons.
First of all, you’re going to need your handbag. We’ve been lusting over the Peter Kaiser Anke hand bag, in it’s rich brown leather and reptile style finish, ever since it landed on our desks. This Peter Kaiser bag is in a beautiful doctor’s style with ample space inside to store everything you need for the day ahead. The bag also features a great range of storage compartments and pockets within – to keep all your belongings organised complete with a quirky hinged clasp for keeping everything safe!
The most important thing to protect in colder weather is your skin, as the weather changes and becomes even more wet, windy and cold your skin will start to feel the effects of the elements in no time, so be sure to make an investment and get yourself a new hand cream. The Balance Me Super Moisturising Hand Cream is ideal to protect your hands whilst keeping them soft and supple throughout the seasons and is packed full of gorgeous ingredients such as Shea Butter and Sweet Almond Oil. The Super Moisturising hand cream is not only brilliant for dry and problem skin, but also smells divine. Receiving nothing but positive reviews by beauty bloggers and industry insiders alike, and with prices starting at only £7.50, it works out to be a lovely treat which works wonders. You’ll notice your lips will also start to feel the chill a bit more and start to become a little drier around the colder seasons. We love the Korres Lip Butters which come in an array of flavours and colours. Once again packed full of friendly ingredients, the Korres lip butters not only keep your lips supple and protected but also add a hint of colour to your every day make up look.
To keep your complexion fresh and banish the appearance of those tired looking eyes (from all the Christmas shopping, of course) the favourite of many make up artists and celebrities of all ages is the coveted YSL Touche Éclat concealer, which adds a radiant touch of illumination to your skin and banishes all those signs of fatigue and tiredness in an instant. To keep your hands feeling fresh and clean on the go we are loving the Bath and Body Works hand sanitizers, which unfortunately are not available in the UK (yet), but you can still pick them up on eBay for around £2 each. They come in an array of exciting scents and colours and are the perfect size to pop in to your bag. They’re also perfect to help clean your hands when out and about to help avoid getting the dreaded winter flu! Finally, a spritz of Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb perfume, which we’re sure is on Christmas wish lists everywhere. This delicate and floral scent depicts notes of rose, orchids and jasmine and is the instant ‘pick-me-up’ fragrance for anyone on the go! If you’re feeling a bit worse for wear after a hard day running errands the Flowerbomb scent instantly acts as warming and delightful smell to freshen your mood. If you find the larger bottle a bit too heavy for carrying around on a day to day basis, you could pick up a smaller perfume atomizer for a few pounds and add some of your favourite fragrance to that, which makes it a much more hand bag friendly size and weight!
