I’m sharing #OBelievers in my life as part of an o.b.® sponsored series for Socialstars™
We have all been there, enjoying a nice day at the pool, relaxing and soaking up the sun. And for whatever reason, you go to reach for an essential and you don’t have it. Be it that you were pushed in the pool by a funny friend and your makeup is smearing, it’s so hot that you want to pull your hair up, or the unthinkable happens, you’ve started that oh so fun time of the month. So you have to pack everything up and head home. Well that drives me nuts. I like to be prepared for every single situation.
I’ve ran into one to many situations where I have not been prepared. So no matter where I’m going, even if it’s just down to the pool, I have a “If only I had this…” bag. And today I’m sharing what’s inside of my pool day essentials bag. It’s easy to toss a small makeup bag into your back pack or just carry it with you.
I feel like it would be irresponsible to talk about soaking up the sun by the pool without reminding you to bring your SPF. You want to protect yourself from the sun, nobody looks cute as a bright red tomato. Especially if you’re super pale like me, you want to be sure to reapply every 1-2 hours.
2. HAIR SUPPLIES
So you’ve been sitting by the pool for a few hours. You’re enjoying yourself but you’re luscious locks are falling limp and maybe you’re thinking of taking a dip? I know for me, that means my hair needs to go up. If it doesn’t, when I jump in, my hair is going to turn into a tangled mess so I must have hair ties and hair pins with me at all times.
3. LIP BALM
Whenever I have been laying out in the sun for an extended period of time, my lips get super dry. Bringing a moisturizing lip balm with you to the pool will prevent the dry out.
4. REFRESHING FACIAL MIST
It’s hot out there. And sometimes we don’t want to jump in the pool to cool off. I like to keep a facial mist with me. You can apply this bare faced or over sunscreen and makeup for an instant cooling boost. Bonus, you get some moisture.
5. MAKEUP WIPES
Remember that friend who thinks they’re funny? Maybe the jokingly push you in the pool and now you have mascara tears and raccoon eyes, not cute, am I right? Keeping makeup wipes in your bag will help you with the clean up.
6. o.b. PRO COMFORT
Like I said, I need to be prepared for everything. I’ve been in situations where the that oh so fun time of the month hits and I am completely unprepared. The quarter in the bathroom vending machine just does not work for me comfort wise. So I keep o.b. Pro Comfort tampons right in my bag. Not even just as a pool day essential but all the time. I know I’m not the only one who has been there, so let’s just put it all out there, we don’t want to just be prepared we also want to be comfortable.
Our bodies are all different, comfort is going to mean something different for you than for me. What I love about o.b. Pro Comfort tampons is that they help stop leaks by expanding all around to fit each unique shape. They’ve got awesome Fluid Lock® grooves for locked in leak protection. And being that they’re extremely compact, they create less waste.
What would be in your pool day essentials bag?
