The "just in case" products

When I wrote about the four products that never leave my handbag, it got me thinking - what are the products I can't live without in my bathroom? Obviously, there are my foundations, my cleanser, my mascara, but I automatically thought of those products that, although you mightn't use them regularly, are always somewhere for me to use at a moment's notice. Call them the emergency, life saving products in my collection.

There are some days where a bit of tinted moisturiser and a coat of mascara can get you through.

Especially as the weather is getting warmer, it's important to make a good base so you don't discover at 10:30am that your foundation has already completely disappeared.
