It’s a long weekend here in Canada as we celebrate its 150th birthday! That being said, I’m sure most of us plan to be outdoors as much as we can this weekend, provided the weather is nice. One of my favourite summer activities is going to the beach, so today I thought I would share with you my beach bag beauty essentials!
While I don’t really wear makeup to the beach, there are still some things that fall into the beauty category when it comes to packing my beach bag:
Sun Bum SPF 50 Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion*
I’ve talked about this sunscreen on the blog before, but it’s my current favourite! It doesn’t feel greasy on the skin and smells good. The formula is water resistant for up to 80 minutes, making it a perfect option for the beach!
Garnier Ombrelle Weightless Tinted Lotion*
This tinted lotion gives me a bit of coverage while protecting me from the sun. It’s SPF 60, which is awesome! It’s hypoallergenic and fragrance-free so it doesn’t break me out either. Also, like the Sun Bum sunscreen, this one is water resistant for up to 80 minutes as well.
Bumble and bumble Surf Infusion
This spray enhances my natural waves for a more textured look. It’s lightweight and a lot less drying than the original formula.
Sun Bum Coconut Sunscreen Lip Balm*
The sun is very drying on my skin, including my lips so I like to bring lip balm with me. This tube is super convenient to use and takes up virtually no space in your bag. Also, your lips can get sun-burnt, so this lip balm contains SPF 30 to protect your lips from the sun. The coconut scent is also perfect for summer!
These ponytail holders are from Shoppers Drug Mart are great at keeping your hair up and off your face. You can’t really see them in your hair and they won’t give you a ponytail bump! I like using them on a daily basis, but they’re also great to have on hand at the beach.
As for the bag, it is the Quo Tropical Summer Small Clutch in ‘Palm’* and can be purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart. I love the print so much and it’s big enough to hold everything!
