Revision Skincare Intellishade Broad Spectrum SPF 45

First things first when it comes to getting ready for a beach day: SPF, SPF, SPF. This tinted moisturizer from Revision Skincare combines the principles of sun protection and anti-aging into one in either an original or matte finish. The formula gives skin natural, healthy looking coverage that also helps to reduce the appearance of any existing lines or wrinkles.

Neutrogena Wet Skin Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45+

This choice of sunscreen has quickly won us over with its powerful coverage, water resistance (after all, it's specially formulated to power through water and sweat), and how it feels on skin. Unlike most sunscreens, which tend to leave skin feeling greasy with an oily residue, Neutrogena's wet skin formula goes on smooth, leaving skin with a satin and uber-soft finish.

It's also packaged conveniently in TSA-approved 3.0 fluid ounces, making it the obvious choice for your travel needs (if you're jetsetting to a more exotic beach).


Fresh Sugar Tulip Tinted Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15

Let's not forget that our lips need lovin' too, when it comes to sun protection. It's not news that Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment has been a cult favorite product, but its Tulip tint is a universally flattering shade of blushed pink - perfect to glide on over lips on a sunny day for a hint of flirty color (backed by SPF 15).

Laura Geller Baked ImPRESSions Bronzer

Looking for a water resistant bronzer, by chance? Among Laura Geller's famous baked products, this adorable seashell shaped bronzer creates a matte finish but feels silky during application - and one that lasts all day. It can even be applied on already wet skin.

The bronzer comes with a mini retractable kabuki brush that you can conveniently bring with you on the go.

$38.00 at Laura Geller

NEUMA neuVolume Surf Lotion

Prep or boost your beach waves with this aptly titled surf lotion, which contains a blend of botanical oils and extracts to moisturize hair and add volume.

What makes this product special is its proprietary Phyto Colour Complex and Phyto UV Shield, which protect hair against UVA and UVB oxidation to keep hair color vibrant - brilliant!

$24.00 at Hair Envy

FINN & CO. White Sand Luxury Fragrance

There could not be a more fitting travel-friendly fragrance for a beach day as White Sand. The luxury fragrance oil is inspired by the classic white tee, and evokes a sporty but sexy spirit with its hints of honeysuckle, mandarin, and a touch of salt. Plus, on top of doing a typical fragrance's job of making us smell good, it's also infused with jojoba and apricot seed oil to nourish skin.

We love the brand's tomboy-ish but sleek packaging and that it's products are completely paraben-free.

$42.00 (10 ml rollerball) at FINN & CO.

Kiss My Face After Play Air Powered Creme

After all your efforts to get a nice tan, maintaining it is another thing, on top of making sure skin is soothed (and not damaged). Give this new product from Kiss My Face a go - the playful, whipped texture goes on easy and the natural coconut scent is delicious. Made with a powerful blend of ultra-moisturizing aloe vera, coconut water, and coconut oil, the creme is gluten free, vegan friendly, and contains zero parabens. Your skin will thank you for this nourishing, natural treatment.

$8.99 at Kiss My Face

Giovanni Cosmetics 2chic Brazilian Keratin & Argan Oil Ultra-Sleek Touch-up Hair Towelettes

Pack these now and your hair will surely thank you later. These touch-up towelettes are designed for on-the-go use to revive hair with shine and to prevent frizz.

Simply run a towelette through hair (dry or damp) to replenish your beachy tresses. It's gentle enough for use on skin, too, as a quick pick-me-up.

$6.99 (10 towelettes per box) at Giovanni Cosmetics

Korres Yoghurt After-Sun Cooling Gel

If you've unfortunately gotten burnt or your skin is now irritated from its exposure to sun, let this cooling gel by Korres come to your rescue. The soothing gel is made with real yoghurt and gentle enough to relieve stinging and hot skin (can be used on both face and body).

Our favorite way to use it: keep the gel refrigerated for a maximum cooling sensation upon application.

$23.50 at Sephora

Serena & Lily Tide and Pool Montauk Beach Towel - Lagoon

We couldn't help but include this genius beach towel from Serena & Lily in our beauty roundup. One side features 100% cotton terry velour, and cotton terry loop on the reverse, to dry and cushion skin with the softest touch. With two designs (a vibrant, perfect-for-summer print and skinny white stripe against a soft lagoon blue), this plush towel absorbs water quickly to help you dry off - and dries quickly too to give your skin a superbly comfy surface to lounge on.

The towel measures 40 x 67”.

$98.00 at Serena & Lily
