The Ladies Lounge- My top wash- bag suggestions.

The purists may disagree, but in my book wash-bags, toiletry cases, cosmetic pouches are all the same thing. They serve interchangeable purposes and only slightly differ in size.

I like my cosmetic cases to be fairly compact and travel friendly. When not travelling, the smaller ones are usually perched on the vanity, stocked up with all the daily essentials, so that they are all in one place and I don’t have to trudge through my full-and-messy drawers everyday.

Here are my top wash-bag/ cosmetic case picks. Most are classic, conservative and elegant. An occasional one may be fun and quirky.

Understated, yet a looker
