If you're no stranger to coffee breath, a chapped lip, or a forgotten tampon: Congrats! You're in great company. If you'd rather not be so friendly with these common annoyances, though, there's a mini emergency kit that fits in your purse and covers all those bases (and many more) that you need to get. Then, immediately throw one into every tote, clutch, and backpack you own.
The Pinch Provision Minimergency Kit is a kind of beauty, fashion, and hygiene care hybrid that packs single-use everyday essentials into a tennis ball sized zip-up pouch. It's all the things you always have at home (Band-Aids, deodorant, hairspray) but never actually on you, which makes all the difference when the need arises. After all, who wants to keep their bathroom counter tumbling around in their bag at all times?
I received my first Minimergency Kit as a stocking stuffer many years ago, and the multitasking personal care arsenal has gotten me through many a tough spot. My most recent save by the kit was when I forgot to buy deodorant for two days in a row. Not one to go bare-pitted, I used the kit's deodorant wipes (two packets' worth), until I could get to the drugstore again.
Pinch Provisions also customizes kits for specific events in particular — the places where you'd really rather not deal with a beauty or fashion fiasco: festivals, weddings, and a big night out (the last one's even done in partnership with Benefit Cosmetics).
