6 Halloween Essentials

Holidays October 18, 2017

Spooky season is officially upon us! We’re so excited to attend Halloween parties, watch a few scary movies, and indulge in a sweet treat or two. While we’re getting our costumes in order, we’re also building a survival kit full of Halloween essentials that’ll make our lives easier. From Pepto-Bismol to makeup remover, here’s what we’re stocking up on before the big day.


No matter how careful you are, eating a few sweets too many is common. We recommend stashing some antacid, like TUMS or Pepto-Bismol in your medicine cabinet. Both soothe nausea and stomach aches, letting you enjoy Halloween before it ends too quickly.


If you need a quick fix for uncomfortable shoes or an itchy costume, grab some Band-Aids in a few different sizes. They’re also handy for minor cuts, scrapes, and burns, which are inevitable if you’re Trick-or-Treating with a little one.

Hair Spray

Halloween calls for crazy hairstyles that are sure to impress. When we need extra hold without leaving our locks crunchy, we turn to Aussie Instant Freeze Hair Spray. Spraying your hair as you style sets everything in place; your hair will last through any scary encounter.

Allergy Medication

As much as we love Halloween, it falls right in the middle of allergy season. Don’t let a runny nose, itchy eyes, or constant sneezing get in the way of your Halloween fun! Keep symptoms at bay with allergy-fighters like Allegra, Zyrtec, and Claritin.

Baby Oil

Next up on our list of Halloween essentials is baby oil. Baby oil is perfect for removing makeup, body paint, and cosmetic glue before they clog your pores and cause breakouts. It’s more gentle than most makeup removers and cuts through even the most full coverage makeup in one swipe.


Once you remove your makeup, you should still cleanse your skin after all the festivities are done no matter how tired you are. You wouldn’t want to start off the holiday season with breakouts, would you? We suggest using Cetaphil Gentle Cleansing Bar for an extra deep clean.
