What's in our beach bag?
Let's be honest...if you live in Miami your beach bag is always packed and ready to go. There's nothing worse than getting to the beach and realizing you forgot one of your beach essentials so we rounded up our 10 must-have items that we always make sure to take with us for the perfect day at the beach. All the products will be linked below. What are your must-have beach day items?
Here are The 10 beach essentials we can’t live without:
Why we love it: This massive basket bag is handcrafted from 100% natural palm leaves and has double leather handles to carry it over the shoulder or as a handle bag. We take this bag with us everywhere, and we mean EVERYWHERE. It holds our beach towels, water bottles, tanning oils, snacks and all of our beach necessities without being uncomfortable on the shoulder. I think it’s safe to say it’s one of our all time favorite (and most used) purchases.
Why we love it: There's a few accessories that will not only take your look to the next level but will also be functional. If you're anything like us, you're constantly misplacing your sunglasses or having to dig for them in your bag. So here's to the accessory you didn't know you needed! P.S. Our sunglass chains also double up as mask holders because well, it's 2020!
Why we love it: Even though we love funky sunglasses, there's nothing like some classic Ray Bans that literally go with ANY outfit. We especially love these with the hexagonal lens because they add a different twist to the classic Ray Bans. It's also one of those frames that happens to look good on almost everybody.
Why we love it: This SPF gives us all the protection but no white cast. It goes on completely clear and leaves your skin looking dewy without feeling greasy. It has ingredients like Niacinamide that helps minimize the appearance of pores and reduce any inflammation or redness and Hyaluronic Acid for boosting hydration. Not to mention, it is one of the few sunscreens that hasn’t broken us out so it’s definitely an everyday go-to for us.
Why we love it: People have been raving about this CC cream for years and with good reason. It is a light weight but pretty full coverage CC+ cream that covers up any skin imperfections while providing lots of protection with SPF 50. It is perfect for those days that you need a little extra love on the skin but without the thick, cake-y look or feeling. It is infused with hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, niacin, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and vitamins, to help give you luminous and flawless-looking skin.
Why we love it: I think this one is pretty self explanatory if you can overlook the price tag. This straw hat is handmade from 100% palm leaf and it has an inner elastic sweatband that stops the fat from moving around. It will take any look to the next level and not to mention it looks good with everything.
Why we love this: Don't let the size of this speaker fool you, it packs a serious punch. Not to mention it is also waterproof and has a crazy 10+ hours of battery life.
Why we love it: I know you might be thinking a towel is JUST a towel…but no, this oversized beach towel is a game changer. It is 6 feet long so your legs will not be sticking out of the towel anymore and it is extra thin, making it easy to roll up and fit in any bag. It’s also surprisingly absorbent and dries very quickly. It’s a gem.
Why we love it: This face spray is an oldie but a goodie. Whether you want to use it as a toner before your skin care routine or as a refreshing mist throughout the day, you can’t go wrong with this one. Our favorites are the Rosewater + Aloe for a boost of hydration and the Cucumber + Green Tea + Aloe for a fresh and cooling feel.
Why we love it: This deep-bronze oil has been a holy grail product for us for way too long. It gives you an instant tan (literally the moment you put it on!) while using SPF, tea tree oil, and antioxidants to protect your skin from the sun and free radicals. It’s definitely more of a gel consistency so you won’t be feeling oily or ruining for favorite bikini or coverup. You’re only $7 away from the most perfect golden tan.
Why we love it: These water bottles are a holy grail in our daily routines. From the gym, to the beach, to our nightstand, we take these everywhere we go. They come in many different sizes and colors as well as with interchangeable lids. Our favorite combo has to be the 32oz bottle with the straw lid because there's something about the straw that just makes it so much easier to drink water throughout the day. They are vacuum insulated to keep your drinks cold for hours, leak proof, and they can handle heavy wear and tear.
