The Edit | Summer Beach Bag Essentials!

Today I thought I'd share some of my beach bag essentials with you, I never really take too much with me but these are some products that are a must-have for me when I'm at the beach. Obviously a towel, sunglasses and flip-flops etc are necessary for the beach but I didn't bother to include them because they're pretty self explanatory!




Hand Sanitizer/Wipes - I always have a hand sanitizer with me wherever I go, so I like to take one with me to the beach. Not a must-have for everyone but I like to have one 'just in case'. And a mini pack of wipes are always handy to have.

Perfume - A perfume or body spray is great to take to the beach with you to ensure you smell good all day. If you don't want to take the full bottle with you then you can buy a Travalo, it's very easy to use and it's much more bag-friendly!

Evian Face Spray - I love to use these face sprays to refresh my skin when it's getting hot and your face might be feeling a little sweaty (nice).

Sun Screen - Obviously whenever you go to the beach you need a bottle of sun screen with you, it's best to apply it about 10-15 minutes before you head out but top-up throughout the day as not all of them are water-resistant.

Lip Balm (with SPF) - Lip balm is something I find myself struggling to leave the house without any time of the year, but it's definitely something you should take to the beach with you. It's surprising how many people forget to protect their lips from the sun, so make sure your lip balm has SPF in it! One of my favourites is Softlips.

Salt Spray - Your hair may not be looking its best on a hot day, so spritz some salt spray in your hair to give it that 'windswept' look. There's lots of different ones out there, from L'Oreal to Bumble and Bumble.


What are your beach bag essentials?
