Four Beach Bag Beauties We Can't Do Without!

With summer in full flight it's time to grab your togs, roll them up in a towel and hit the beach! Welllllll... not quite. Gone are the days where hitting the beach was that simple. With the sun being enemy number one we need to make sure our bod is loved up from top to toe before we set foot on the sand.

So... what are our beach bag must-haves? They're ones recommended by you! Yes, all four products below have reached Top Rated status. Which means they've been tried and tested by Kiwi women in New Zealand conditions. And we couldn't ask for a better recommendation that that!

Check these out...

Neutrogena Beach Defence

We really can not bang on about this enough, but sunscreen is so important. For us it's a number one must-apply no matter what the time of year. In summer, however, it's a re-apply situation and the higher the SPF the better. Don't hold back on the amount you use either. A good six or seven teaspoons, minimum, is required. And be sure to slip, slop, slap throughout the day. 

La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL

Sometimes the sunscreen you use on your body doesn't work for your face. If this is the case for you then you may well love La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL. This fluid soaks into skin like a dream, doesn't leave a greasy feel, and it does a fantastic job of protecting your face from the sun's rays. 

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Lip Protectant

Between eating and drinking and bouncing about in the waves it's easy to overlook the importance of protecting and nourishing your lips. Chapped lips are uncomfortable but burnt lips are horrible. Stash a lip balm in your beach bag, like Elizabeth Arden's Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick, and your lips will thank you for it.

Goodness Be Cool Mist Toner

To be honest, this is more of a 'why not, let's get luxe' step than anything else. But when you're covered in sea salt and sand, and sweat has beaded your temples, a little spritz of a cooling toner is just the ticket, and Goodness Be Cool Mist Toner gets the tick from us... and Beauty Review members too!

So will your beach bag be featuring any of these beauties? Are you already a fan of these hotties? What other beauty products hit the beach with you? Get chatting!

I love the Goodness Be Cool Mist Toner, don't need to go to the beach to use it. I have also used the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Lip Protectant stick which is really hydrating on lips.

All great products - although haven't been able to get to the beach this summer as I had a total hip replacement and was housebound for a bit! Now our summer here is pretty much gone lol

I don't need to be going to the beach to be carrying sunscreen around with me. If I'm going out for more than a couple hours walking about town I'll have sunscreen in my bag, as well an spf lip balm.

Sunscreen and lip balm always.

Always sunscreen and a bottle of water.

Sunscreen is a given, the LRP is probably the best facial sunscreen that i have used. Ever. A bottle of water and coconut oil in my hair.

24th February, 2019

Last time I went for a day at the beach I took sunscreen, the goodness mist which I love, and a chilly bin full of great food and cider lol. I have the LRP sunscreen but not tried it yet.

24th February, 2019

I need a bottle of water with me as well and a hat if it wasn't a windy day.

24th February, 2019

I never go to the beach but I'd love the Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Lip Protectant. It's looks gorgeous.
