In partnership with AZO Products.
Congratulations!! You have carried half your wardrobe in a tote bag for long enough and have finally made it to girlfriendhood, earning the drawer at your boyfriend’s place. You know what that means? Your nomadic existence is officially OVER. You don’t have to put a clean pair of underwear in a plastic bag and shove it to the bottom of your purse! You don’t have to make an excuse as to why you’re carrying around mini bottles of all of your skincare products anymore!! YOU CAN ACTUALLY CARRY A MICRO BAG LIKE ALL OF THE INFLUENCERS DO!
The news can be overwhelming, we know, and after months of dreaming of this day, it’s normal to now be drawing a blank. You’re probably thinking: “I fought for this drawer for so long — now what in the *world* do I stock it with?”
But don’t sweat — we’ve got you. Ahead, we’re breaking down exactly what to stock in your drawer-away-from-home.
Spare Pair(s) of Underwear
Let’s start with the basics — you need clean underwear to keep on hand for the nights that you sleep over. Now, it’s important to note that these are not meant to be sexy at all. They are purely functional. You wear your sexy underwear on your date, and when you get home, you slip into something more comfortable for you to lounge around in. (AKA the boy briefs you buy in bulk because they don’t dig in.)
AZO(R) Boric Acid Suppositories
Not to put you off your lunch, but let’s be honest — things can smell a little funky below the belt from time to time. (Especially if you and your S.O. have an ~active sex life~.) These AZO(R) Boric Acid Suppositories balance yeast and bacteria that can cause you to feel less-than-fresh. You can insert these whenever you notice an imbalance in pH or odor, then feel refreshed — and your boyfriend won’t be the wiser.
Deodorant That Doubles As Perfume
While we’re on the subject of stank, this rosy deodorant smells so good, it can double as a sweet-scented perfume, too.
Mini Skincare Set
Don’t schlep all of your skincare products to your man’s house. The easiest way to ensure your face is looking top-notch is to pick up a travel kit of your go-to brand. When in doubt, go simple — this set from Mario Badescu is good for most skin types.
You may think that a hair brush is a better thing to place in your sacred space, but if you’ve got limited real estate and can’t fit both, opt for the hair ties over the comb. They work for washing your face and pulling your hair back when it inevitably looks like a rat’s nest the morning after.
AZO(R) Dual Protection
You know those mornings when you wake up and just *know* you feel yeast issues? There’s nothing worse than having that feeling at your boyfriend’s place. If you’re not someone who always remembers to use the bathroom after sex (hey, it happens to the best of us) Dual Protection is the move for you. It’s formulated to help protect both yeast and urinary tract health *. (Win!)
