"The most embarrassing thing in my beauty bag? That would have to be diaper rash ointment. It's the most amazing thing ever if you have dry elbows and heels or chapped lips, like I always do. But of course I bury it at the bottom of my bag because it's a weird thing to have." -- Mary D.
"I have a leftover track from my weave that I had done a few weeks ago in my purse. It's not so much that I'm embarrassed, as it is other people feeling extremely awkward every time I open my bag and they see all this hair stuffed in there. You never know when that extra piece may come in handy." -- Tiffanie P.
"I've had horrible allergies my whole life, complete with under-eye bags, nasal drip, and occasional bad breath. My doctor suggested using a tongue scraper, and I've been hooked ever since. I know it sounds gross, but what's grosser is all the germs and gunk that get stuck in your mouth. It might be embarrassing, but my mouth has never felt cleaner." -- Cassie W.
