If you’re a woman, you should have more than just toothbrush and a tube of toothpaste on your bathroom counter. To ensure that you keep yourself as clean as possible, you need more than just facial cleanser. Here are the 5 absolute must-haves:

Wet Wipes
Wet wipes are an absolute must-have in the bathroom because they’re so useful. I always prefer to go with baby wet wipes because they’re gentle enough for you to use on the face. Wet wipes are great to use when you want to wipe off the first layer of makeup before using a makeup remover. They’re also great for a quick rub down on the face if you’re in a rush.

Coconut Oil
An absolute must, a bottle of coconut oil in the bathroom will go a long way. You can use it to give your hair a quick treatment, clean your mouth out, remove your makeup and the list goes on. My favourite is to smother a generous layer over my face before bed and wake up with really smooth skin. Also, no eye makeup remover is better than coconut oil.

Hand Wash
I’m a firm believer in washing your hands after doing anything in the bathroom. Plus, who would be against having clean hands anyway? It’s good to have a bottle of hand wash on your bathroom counter anyway because after getting your face all done up with foundation and etc., your hands could definitely do with a good cleaning.

Melvita L’Or Rose Firming Oil
I think every woman should have this in their bathroom because we can’t run away from cellulite as much as we want to. Not too oily and packed with ingredients that will help firm the skin, this oil will also reduce the appearance of the orange peel effect.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist
I love giving my face a quick spritz with this Vitamin E Face Mist by The Body Shop. Not only is it refreshing but its extremely good for your skin. I would suggest spraying before applying your usual moisturizer. The bottle is also small enough to chuck in your handbag, so that you’re able to spray and refresh on the go!
