#TCFTurns5 Giveaways: Winterize Your Handbag with Ricola

Winterize Your Handbag with Ricola

As the seasons change, so do our handbags (at least for me!). I swap out or put in my bag items that are necessary for winter (yeah, I know, I am in Cali, how much winter could I have?)! I switch out or add in my lotions, lip balm, and of course, cough drops. I wish I was more ready than I was this time last year, cause… I was wounded for my blog anniversary party! LOL.

I have switched to my new Koret handbag, added in my must haves for winter weathers and now, I got my tools, my essentials and today I add in a new one!

Did you know that Ricola, the “leading manufacturer of soothing herb drops from Switzerland,” has added a new product to its line? They have this new “Extra Strength” option for powerful cough relief, just in time for me to winterize my handbag!

Winterize my handbag? You betcha!

Winterize Your Handbag with Ricola

This is how I have winterized my handbag:

  • Switched to my new Koret bag– Chic and sophisticated boo!
  • Snatched up my Perlier Shea Butter Hand Cream (this is AMAZING)
  • My Starbucks after coffee mints– I love these. Actually, I love Starbucks anything…
  • My Neosporin Lip Health Daily Hydration Therapy with SPF 20. No chapped lips here!
  • Tissue please! You never know!

And now, I add my Extra Strength Ricola for those pesky moments- I NEED TO BE READY. I cannot be loading up on medicine the day of my party… I CANNOT. It was such a fog…

  1. I carry a tube of Eucerin Aquafor with me at all times, as well as some tissues. And, of course, I swap my summer lipsticks for my sultry winter colors! 🙂

  2. Hmmmm. How do I winterize my handbag? I make sure I have a small jar of vaseline. I use it as a lip balm and to take away the ash on my elbows. That’s about it. I’m very minimal about this stuff.

  3. Tissues, my little Eos lip balm, cough drops, my Starbucks gift card pre-loaded, and plenty of hand sanitizing wipes! Because why is it sick folks love to get more close during flu season? Have to keep yourselves protected!

  4. I always keep hand lotion in my purse, and lip gloss. Winter= cracked, blistered, bleeding dry skin. Gold Bond lotion is the best for me, but any lotion will do!

  5. I add an additional antibacterial from Bath and Body Works (kill bacteria and smell good), Kleenex, Skin So Soft Hand Cream from Avon (non-greasy and soooo moisturizing), Vaseline Lip Balm or Baby LIps, Peppermint, Vitamin C

  6. I always add a pack of tissue for the winter, can’t be walking around dripping about the nose. The winters are harsh here in Cleveland so these Ricolas will come in handy in my handbag.

  7. I can’t say Ricola is my number one favorite, but they do hold steady at the #2 spot. I keep a purse full of everything. I actually did a what’s in your purse bingo game for brunch! I have emergency carmax, cough drops, shoes etc.

  8. Tissues! Hand Sanitizer! It’s not sexy, but I do my best to avoid picking up any winter germs. I also add Carmex (tried and true), a hat I knitted last winter (only for emergencies… I get severe hat hair), and everything goes into a handmade brocade bag by Avril’s Designs.

  9. I’m an actor and a singer so taking care of myself during the winter is crucial, especially now when I’m in a performance. So I’ve winterized my purse by carrying my favorite Honey-Lemon Ricola’s, tissues, hand sanitizer, tea bags, mints, The Body Shop hand lotion and chapstick and an extra pair of gloves.

  10. I carry chapstick,peppermints,tissues,Ricola really are my favorite cough drops I like the honey lemon ones best and I carry antibacterial sanitizer.

  11. Hand sanitizer, tissues, lotion and chap stick! My husband and kids have the flu right now. I’m the only one not sick. Hopefully will stay that way! Thx for this great giveaway!

  12. I always keep some type of lipstick or lip balm, tissues and mirror. I also keep a tweezer and dental floss…and lately I carry my black fingerless gloves…I change handbags a lot…and I just transfer these to the next. Thx!

  13. DEFINITELY a good hand cream- a bit pricey, but L’Occitane brand is the best! Also lip balm and a tissues pocketpack.

  14. I winterize my purse by making sure that if I’m not currently carrying a large shopper-esque tote bag, I switch over to one in a dark color. I then make sure to add these must-have essentials of: heavy hand and body creams, beanies to protect my curly kinks from the harsh weather, stacks on stacks of lip balms and glosses, Kleenex packs, peppermints & throat drops, and hand sanitizer.
