We’ve all been through the arduous process of breaking in a new pair of shows, it’s painful! Whether you have just bought a new pair of shoes or not, when you’re on the go all day, you will inevitably get a blister now and again. Having a packet of blister plasters in your handbag could save you a lot of pain and discomfort and also prevent an infection starting. Compeed are the most famous blister plasters. Most pharmacies will also have their own brands which are equally as good.
Make sure you are prepared for an unexpected meeting or night out by carrying a good lippy in your bag.
