Miniature Must Haves- Hands, Face and Body.

I always like to carry miniatures in my handbag for those "just in case" moments actually occur.
Being prepared for any make up faux pas or mishaps throughout the day and night.

So here are a few must haves that should be in every woman's bag at all times.

1. Nail File. I can't even begin to count the amount of times I've chipped a nail or broken one whilst out and about and always thought to myself "I wish I had a nail file or something with me" so I found these cute mini emery boards in Boots for just £2 for a pack of three.

2. Dry Shampoo. For those moments you just need to freshen up. After a long day shopping or being at uni in hot stuffy rooms and shops my hair feels deflated and limp, maybe even looking a bit greasy. Dry Shampoo will forever hold a prime spot in my handbag as it puts life back into my hair and renews its freshness. There are many to choose from; someti volumize, some for blondes/brunettes and some with sparkle or with different fragrances all to suit people's different needs and wants. These small cans of wonder price in at £1.49 in Boots or are usually on offer for 3 for 2 with other miniatures.

3. Pocket Moisturiser. Face ever feel a little dry or dull? This illuminating moisture lotion fits perfectly in your handbag and can be used to perk up your face in the morning on the way to work or liven it up after work, and even put a bit of moisture back into your skin if its feeling dry. This one by Sanctuary has a lovely scent and doesn't leave the skin feeling oily afterwards like I've found many moisturisers do. Unlike the other miniatures, this one is a bit more pricey at £13.27, again from Boots. But it is worth buying as a little goes a long way with this 75ml bottle.

4. Hand Cream. Soap and Glory are one of our favourite brands for lotions and other pampering products. We have both been crazy about Hand Food for about 5 years almost and swear by it. The almond scent of all Soap and Glory products is heavenly and this little bottle of hand cream has held pride of place in our bags and in our daily routine. It keeps our hands staying soft and supple everyday and just smells great! You can pick this up for as little as £2.50.

5. Body Butter. If you're keeping your hands and face full of life and full of moisture.. What's stopping you from keeping the rest of you soft and supple too? That's where The Righteous Butter comes in. Another beloved Soap and Glory product, both me and Kirsty have the big versions of this delicious smelling body butter and think the mini would come in useful in desperate times of need when out the house. Dry elbows or skin just feeling a bit 'meh'? Righteous Butter puts the glow back into your skin and can be purchased for £2.50, once again from Boots.

With these minutes in your bag, you'll never have a bad skin/nail day ever again!

Do you have any of these products? What do you think of them? Any others you would recommend?
