6. Lip Balm & Breath Freshener
You might think why are we talking about Lip Balm & Breath Fresheners. They’re not expensive or really important items. If you think that, you’d be wrong. These small, inexpensive items have a very big impact on your life. Here at TGB we like to cover all the bases. However small or big, regardless of price. If you really think about it, at one point or another these items have come to save you at certain points in your life.
Breather fresheners come in different options, chewing gum, mints, spray and strips. Its totally your choice which you go for and you already know they can come in different flavours too. We’ve all been in the situation where we have been for lunch or dinner, had a delicious meal and to be honest your breath smells. Last thing you want is to go back to work or go on a date with smelly breath. Breath refreshers to the rescue. It’s simple! It also helps a lot if you’re a smoker, everyone hate smokers breath. Just remember chewing gum in a meeting or on a date can be considered rude, so in certain situations you may want to think about mints or strips, it’s more discreet.
A Lip Balm is to moisturise and protect your lips especially from the outside weather. So they don’t get dry or look disgusting. Last thing you want is chapped and crusty lips. Walking into work or on a date like this is totally embarrassing. Carry a lip balm with you, problem solved. Its small and easy to carry, on your person or in your bag. They come in a range of different options and these days a lot of brands have made lip balms specifically with men in mind. I would recommend trial and error when choosing a lip balm for you, avoid anything with glitter, they aren’t for men. Avoid cheap products that will just make your lips worse.
So don’t get caught without your Lip Balm and Breath Freshener, as at one point in the day you wish you had them. The good thing is as they are so inexpensive you can buy multiple ones and keep them on your person, in your bag, at work, in the car, at work and thats what i do. This way I’m never caught off guard. Remember always be prepared.
