|The trick is to pack lightly...it is quite a trick.|
- Kiehl's Eye Alert : caffeine for tired, puffy eyes - this stuff really works, and fast, too. I have yet to encounter anything better, but it has lasted quite a while so far, I'm pretty certain I'll be stocking up on exactly the same product when this one runs out!
- Dental Floss : for obvious reasons, and sometimes not so obvious...cleaning teeth for that perfect smile, yes, but also an option to create FX scars on the fly.
- The Garnier Pure SOS Pen is brilliant at making inflamed zits fade into oblivion: again, a staple and trusted product that I will certainly buy again, and again, and again... you get the picture.
- A tiny tube of approximately two applications of sunscreen for face...always in my standby kit for any emergency sun-protection. This is where samples can come in handy. I have stashes everywhere!
- Alcohol swabs : for sterilizing just about anything, but mostly brushes and cream products like lipsticks, blushers and whatnot.
- Lipbalm with a high SPF: I don't always use this, but great when our indoor shoot sddenly becomes an outdoor shoot!
- Individual eye drop: more hygienic than those tiny bottles, and ideal to quickly flush the eye if necessary.
- Tiny tube of lash glue : to stick on just about anything...
- And what is not in frame is a small collection of plasters: not always necessary, since most sets have either a first aid kit, or a medic, but there have been time when these have been handy.
- I also have a small stash of individually wrapped toothpics! We may not always have time to floss, and I sometime need to dart in and quickly dislodge sesame seeds and the like...
|The smaller the products, the better|
I keep these in the smallest of sizes in a tiny plastic container, and it doesn't leave my kit. When we have a large set, or need to travel from set to set without a chance to simply go back and forth to my station, I need to be sure to pack a good standby kit, and this Emergencey Box stays with me!
