If my sunburn from this weekend is telling me anything, it's that summer is fast approaching. Also that I need to wear more sunscreen. Soon my weekends will be filled with beach trips and boat days, so that means it's time to stock up on some travel-sized summer essentials.
Here are a few of my favs:
1. Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray, $15 Sephora
I love myself a beach wave. Now with my new shorter 'do, I crave texture more than ever to keep it from falling flat. This spray makes you feel and smell like you just came from the beach (in a good way!)
2. Pixi Lip Balm Set, $28 Birchbox
I love these fresh lip balms. They provide just the right amount of color (not too opaque) and tons of shea butter moisture to keep your lips from drying out in the sun.
3. Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow, $27 Birchbox
I don't know when dewey skin became a "thing" but I love the look. Be warned -- there's a fine line between looking "sweaty" and "dewey," so use sparingly!
4. Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye, $20 Sephora
If you know me, you know that I never leave home without my eyeliner (even during races). So you can trust me when I say that this liner is one of the best. It's easy to put on (it's basically a felt-tipped marker), and it lasts allllll day.
5. Eucerin Intensive Repair Enriched Foot Creme, $9 Amazon
Summer means sandals, and sandals means your feet better be looking good. Even if you're not into pedicures, I think we can all agree that cracked feet isn't a cute look. Skip the salon, and pick up some of this miracle foot creme.
6. Moroccan Oil (.8 oz.), $14.80 Nordstrom
I use this year round, but it's especially great for warding off frizz in the warmer months. Bonus: it smells great and isn't sticky.
7. Bobbi Brown Beach Fragrance, $25 Sephora
I usually like more musky scents, but in summer I opt for something lighter. This one from Bobbi Brown is perfect -- airy, fresh, and beachy.
8. LA Fresh Travel Lite Antiperspirant Wipes, $2.49 Birchbox
#RealTalk: I sweat. A LOT. Sometimes there just isn't enough antiperspirant in the world to stop me from melting in the 100-degree summers here. These little wipes are great for preventing embarrassing sweat stains.
Don't forget the sunscreen!
