Ladies, do you you carry around a small supply of toiletries in your purse? I find that I keep a small, nylon case filled with "emergency" items I may need throughout the day: toothbrush/paste/floss, anti-bac. wipes, lip balm, lotion, eye drops, etc. I have a small Walgreens in my purse!!!

What about you?

I only keep makeup and hand sanitizer in my purse but I keep some items in the console of my car- I have a mini deodorant, tiny perfume spray, a bag of mini floss picks, hand lotion, a small tube of Neutrogena sunblock, and hand wipes.

You all must be young. I used to carry makeup with me, not anymore - I start out w/makeup on and that's how it'll look for the rest of the day, lol. I do carry my Blixtex/lip balm and hand sanitizer which I believe is pretty necessary these days.

well, I don't mean makeup-that's a whole nother thing entirely!! If I'm wearing makeup, then I have blotting powder, lip gloss, a black pencil, and mascara to reapply later.
I'm talking just normal items you may need throughout the day. Lip balm is pretty much necessary.

I like the way you ladies think!

In my car: sunblock (it's a stick, and won't melt in hot weather)
hand-sanitizer (wipes or liquid)
moisturizer
In my purse: another tube of sunblock
moisturizing lipstick
sunblock-based powder

Other than that, as w/Flamingo13, the makeup I put on in the AM is the only make up I use during the day.

I use all travel-sized items, so they don't take up much room. Washing or vacuuming the car, I always replentish the stash! Easy ~

I assume makeup doesn't qualify as toiletries, which I carry too much of.

I do have a toothbrush, toothpaste and mouthwash. I also carry germX, and couple of those other things I might need in case my Aunt surprises me or something.

In my desk at work, I keep more toothpaste, toothbrush, and deodorant along with perfume (cheap knockoff stuff). I keep deodorant there, because some days when I get about halfway to work I can't remember if I put any on or not, so I have some when I get to work.

I also keep germX and sunblock in the car.
