If you’ve got a hot date coming up and want to look and feel your best, you’ve come to exactly the right place. I’ve gathered together a list of four beauty essentials you need to take with you! Each beauty must-have in this line-up is multi-purpose and the perfect size for popping into your handbag for date night so you can discreetly refresh in the bathroom throughout the evening.
Whether you’re off on a blind date or you’re getting ready for a romantic night with your long-term partner, add these beauty essentials to your bag for stealthy top-ups at any moment…
1. The Nourishing Hand and Body Cream
Date Night Essential: Antipodes Delight Hand & Body Cream.
Multi-purpose Benefits: Hydrates and nourishes your hands and body.
Dry hands or scaly skin? You’ve met your match. The Antipodes Delight Hand & Body Cream moisturises and softens all over your body thanks to its nourishing antioxidant-rich formula.
If your skin is prone to feeling dry or rough, the Antipodes Delight Cream will leave your hands feeling silky soft – ready for any hand-holding and up-close moments! Its 100% natural formula works to replenish skin, so it’s supple and thoroughly moisturised – you have avocado oil, macadamia nut oil and marigold bloom oil to thank for that. The formula is super nourishing and doesn’t feel at all sticky.
2. The Rosy Lip and Cheek Stain
Date Night Essential: Benefit Floratint – Desert Rose Tinted Lip & Cheek Stain.
Multi-purpose Benefits: Adds a diffused kiss of rosy colour to lips and cheeks.
You’ll have perfectly flirty flushed lips and cheeks until the end of your date when you remember to pack the Benefit Flora. The travel-size buildable tint slots easily inside your bag, so you can whip it out whenever you feel like your blush or lip look is beginning to fade.
Loved worldwide since 1977, the rose-tinted Benetint will add a sheer finish of deep pink to your lips wherever you are, thanks to its handy in-built doe-foot applicator.
3. The Refreshing Face Mist
Date Night Essential: Bioderma Atoderm SOS Spray.
Multi-purpose Benefits: Refreshes makeup, sets your makeup, soothes skin irritation, cools skin in the heat, hydrates your complexion, and strengthens your skin barrier.
Suitable for use on both the face and body, the Bioderma SOS Spray is a must-have for date night if you have dry or atopic skin – there’s a reason why it has ‘SOS in its name’.
You can keep the spray stowed away safely in the bottom of your bag, so you can take it out to refresh and calm your skin during flare-ups. So, if the restaurant aircon is wreaking havoc on your sensitive, dry skin or you just need to cool down when you’re overheating, you’ll have this close to hand. Whether you use it on your face or body, Bioderma’s milky spray will leave skin soothed, comfortable and free from tightness and irritation.
4. The Refreshing Dry Shampoo
Date Night Essential: Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk Spray.
Multi-purpose Benefits: Refreshes locks, volumises, reduces grease and shine, and neutralises odours.
If it’s been a few days since you’ve last had a chance to wash your hair, or maybe you’re worried that your voluminous bouncy blow-dry is going to drop midway through your date, you need the mini Klorane Dry Shampoo.
As the world’s first-ever dry shampoo, you can trust that the iconic Klorane Oat Milk Shampoo will either clean up oily roots and neutralise any odours or add a little extra oomph to your hair throughout the evening. Plus, its mini size makes it easy to carry discreetly!
