I live a pretty fast-paced lifestyle.  Im always zooming from place to place - from home, to Annabelles day care, to the gym, to SWIISH, to meetings, to Channel 7 and back againall in a day!  To say I need to be preparedwould be an understatement.  Ha ha! 

With all that whizzing around, oh no!moments are inevitable.  You know what I mean. Spinach in the teeth, a broken heel, a sudden coffee spill which, by the way, only ever happens when youre wearing a brand new white shirt.  Am I right?

For me (well, for all of us really!), oh no!moments are literally lurking around every corner.  Thats why when NIVEA sent me their new Protect & Care deodorant to try, I thought – why not create a pack to get out of these sticky situations, with the ultimate combo of protection and care – genius! So here’s my ten pack essentials:

  • NIVEA Protect & Care Deodorant
  • NIVEA Crème
  • AVON Ultra Colour Lip Crayon
  • Portable phone charger
  • Hollywood Tape
  • Party Feet
  • Hair spray
  • Paddle hair brush
  • Elastoplast Blister Plasters
  • Wet wipes

I still remember this one particular oh nomoment when my flight was delayed FOR 5 HOURS.  And lets just say this airport was far from Sydneys International shop and dinestyle. That wasnt the stressful part though No, the stressful part was when I looked down at my phone and saw I had only 1% battery left!  I instantly felt my stomach churn.  No phone calls?  No social media?  No EMAILS??  Oh nowas an understatement.  Ha ha!

Anyway, thats how the portable phone charger made the cut.  As for the deodorant?  That one speaks for itself.  I know Im not the only one whos left the house in a hurry, only to realise theyve forgotten to put on deodorant.  Theres seriously nothing more embarrassing! 

Deodorant was always going to be part of the pack, but after trialing NIVEAs new Protect & Care’ deodorant, I knew it could only be this one. NIVEA have really gone one better and added elements of NIVEA crème to their new deodorants to moisturise and soothe skin.  Lasting up to 48 hours, this is one deodorant I know I can rely on to keep me protected all day long.  It feels super gentle on your skin and leaves your underarms feeling so soft and smooth.  I am loving the double duty!

The next item is the NIVEA Crème mini.  Having dry skin is definitely not ideal and if youre not prepared, things can get uncomfortable quick.

As for the brush and the hairspray?  This is one I learned from my hair and makeup glam squad.  If youre ever running late to an event, these two items can help you take your hair from fine to fab in seconds.  Simply take a section of your hair and brush upwards from underneath while spritzing a little hairspray.  Repeat this for multiple sections of hair until you get the volume youre looking for.  So easy!

Theres a reason behind all of the items in my NIVEA Protect & Carepack.  Blisters, unexpected spills, last minute meetings…  Yep, this pack will be sure to save me from countless sticky situations.  The best part is, it can do the same for youFOR FREE.  Yep, thats right.  Thanks to NIVEA, ten lucky SWIISH readers will have the chance to win one of my Protect & Carepacks – oh, and did I mention all items come in a personalized monogramed beauty case from Mon Purse? Each individual pack has a value of $170. Not bad, huh?
