A successful day at the beach starts with a well packed beach bag. Here's what we're carrying in our tote this summer...
Zinc sunscreens tend to be thick and goopy, and we're still on the hunt for the perfect one. Coola Full Spectrum 360° Mineral Face Sunscreen, Kinship Probiotic Moisturizing Sunscreen, and Sun Bum Mineral Sunscreen Spray all get good reviews and are next on our list to try.
Ditch single-use plastic water bottles and opt for a stylish canteen instead like this one from S'Well. The 25oz size "keeps drinks cold for 54 hours or hot for 26" and there are tons of color and pattern options for everyone.
Keep sunburnt lips at bay and make sure to use a chapstick with SPF. Burt's Bee's is sold in most pharmacies and with a price tag of around $4, you can't go wrong.
This lightweight, quick-drying towel from Fair Seas Supply Co. won't take up much space in your bag and is great to travel with. It's made from organic cotton grown near the Aegean Sea and can also double as a bath towel or a picnic blanket.
There's nothing better than scents that remind us of summer. Phlur's S.C. 59 is "inspired by the bold and daring surf clubs of the 1950's" and "a warm and modern twist on the classic surf scent". They offer a sample pack of 3 scents for $18-perfect to toss in your beach bag n' go.
An over-sized beach hat is both practical and chic. We bought the one pictured above in Greece last year but this one from Cuyana is super cute and made sustainably. It's hand-woven in Ecuador from Toquilla straw- "a renewable resource made from young Toquilla palm fronds that are harvested without harming the main tree".
