It’s been a LONG time since I did a post for all the fisherbabes out there, but I thought this would be the perfect time to discuss some of my favorite products that I LOVE for all those trips where running water may not be a luxury that is afforded. These products are also great for camping or in those particular situations where the bathrooms are so EEEEWWWWYY that they do not require an explanation…you all know which ones I mean!! Britney Spears may love to party barefoot on nasty infested bathroom floors, but this diva does not!!! So the following products are ones that I have found to be essential to ensuring that I still feel like princess even when sitting in the outhouse!!
1. Neutrogena Make-Up Remover Wipes
These are THE BEST make-up remover wipes that I have found on the market yet!! I have tried many, many different types of these wipes, but the Neutrogena brand has always been gentle and refreshing. These wipes are the best because they are resealable and very gentle. They do NOT need water to work as they are pre-moistened. PLUS, you do not need to rinse your face after using them. Therefore, these are the the MOST portable wipes that I found so far!! I even use them at home!!
2. CoverGirl Lip Stains
I LOVE THESE STAINS!!! They really stay on!! I think they speak for themselves, and I even wear them when we go out because I know that I will not have to refresh them at all!! I really can just slide some chapstick on my lips throughout the night and be done!! This is really important when you’re on the water, because you still want to look pretty but who wants to take out a mirror or a compact. That’s just silly!! These are great because you put them on in the morning before heading to the lake and you’re done!! I suggest slicking any type of chapstick with a sunblock over the top for an all day dose of sun protection AND a nice sheen!!
3. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock
I am a huge fan of this sunblock because I have very sensitive skin. As I previously stated, I have used Neutrogena for many years because I know I can always count on the gentleness of the product. This sunblock is really great because it comes in protection up to 100!! Plus it also doubles as a great under makeup moisturizer!! Its dry touch which means its not at all greasy and great feeling on the skin!!
4. Clinique SuperBalanced Make-Up
This is my favorite type of make-up for all kinds of reasons. First of all, it feels great on the skin because YOU CANNOT FEEL IT!! It’s the first makeup that I have found that really feels like you are wearing nothing when you have it on. It also stays on great all day!! I like to mix it with a moisturizer (50/50) and set it with a light pressed powder when I am on the water. I mean I LOVE to fish…but I wanna look pretty when I do it
5. Colgate Wisps
These are great. They are pocket sized and can fit right into your tackle box. They have a bead of freshness in the middle and little bristles to clean and freshen after a meal in the boat…I mean every fishin’ diva knows that we are all so awesome that there is always a chance their boat mate might try to steal a kiss!! Better be ready girls!!
6. Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant
Princesses have to smell sweet at all times. Close your ears if you are reading this guys so you can keep thinking girls don’t sweat!!
Even if you do not need prescription strength deodorant, this is a smart buy. It allows you to wear those layers and layers of clothing without worrying about sweating!! Plus, if you are some place hot! hot! hot! it takes care of you in your bikini!!!
7. Green Rootine Dry Shampoo (Sephora)
I LOVE DRY SHAMPOOS…and this one has the brush attached. How Convenient!! This shampoo cleans and refreshes hair without the use of water!! We all know weight limits are a problem when you are flying into a great fishing location. You cannot afford to bring along extra cosmetics and hair supplies. However, this does not mean we want to look like old hags by the end of the week. This dry shampoo comes in two different colors (light and dark) and works so well to refresh hair mid week!! Beautiful hair and big fish…what fisherbabe could ask for more!!
For all you blonde fisherbabes like me, I also want to suggest a cheap alternative. Sometimes, if I do not have time to shop before leaving, I will just throw some loose translucent power in my bag with a brush. This works great for blondes and gives you a quick lift and the appearance of a highlight. Plus, its quick and cheap!!
8. Smooth Away Hair Removers
Ok Girls…I saved the best for last. This thing is a miracle!!! They really do work and come in sizes that fit perfectly for legs, underarms, and the bikini area. I HATE not being able to take my razor and shaving cream along with me on the trip. But the weight restrictions suck. PLUS I never like to put chemicals into the lake that aren’t ABSOLUTELY necessary. This product ensures a sexy, goddess like hair-free body even 4 days into a 10 day (running water-less) fishing trip in the wild!!
Ok Girls…there you have them – my all time favorite products to keep your inner princess happy the whole time you fish.
Guys – I apologize for the girlie post, but even you guys should use the sunblock!!! Have a great rest of your weekend!!
Happy Shopping ~
