They clean brushes brilliantly, are inexpensive and perfect for travel. Store then in a small Ziploc bag to prevent them from drying out. (Face Secrets Make Up Brush Cleansing Towelettes, $5.49, SallyBeauty.com)
Peeka-Bu Intimate Mirror
OK, so I admit I was a little perplexed by this one when I first stumbled across it, but its actually very handy for grooming, bikini waxing and trimming the area -and those hard to see places! (Peeka-Bu Intimate Mirror, $24.95, BigDaddyBeauty.com)
Mane n Tail Hoofmaker Hand & Nail Therapy
Mane n Tails hair care line is a godsend for dry, damaged and coarse hair. They also make amazing hand cream, based on a formula to protect horses hoofs.
