Beach Essentials: New Products for Face, Body, Hair and More!

Thursday July 5, 2012

With the warm weather in full force, what better way to cool off than going to the beach. Of course, a trip to the beach is never as simple as throwing a suit and towel into a bag. There's your makeup, your skin and your hair to think of! The wind, sun, and humidity can melt your makeup or give your hair a bad case of the frizzies. That's why we're here! We have a whole whack of fabulous new summer products to help you keep your cool! 

For Your Face 

With the summer heat, having a face full of layered makeup isn't exactly desirable. Lighten up with BB Creams, or hybrid products that do double duty. Try: #1 L'Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream (C$16.99, available July 2012), #4 Benefit Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow Brightening Makeup (C$42.00, available August 2012), #5 Covergirl Wetslicks Fruit Spritzers (C$7.99), #6 Shiseido Makeup Lacquer Rouge (C$30.00, available October 2012)

A day at the beach can be rough on your makeup. Try waterproof or long lasting options that promise to keep you looking your best, no matter what the weather. Try: #Chanel Rouge Double Intensite Ultra Wear Lip Colour (C$36.18), #Covergirl Lineblast 24HR Liquid Eyeliner (C$10.99), #7 Clinique Lash Power Mascara (C$18.00), #8 Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25HR Foundation (US$7.29), #9 Tarte Amazonian Clay 12Hr Blush (C$ 33.00).

For Your Hair and Body 

Before stepping out to the beach, get your skin its softest with: #2 Rocky Mountain Organic Sugar Scrub (C$21.00) and #1 Olay Quench Plus Touch of Sun Body Lotion (C$10.99) which also contains a gradual sunless tanner! Once you're at the beach, don't skimp on the sun protection. We suggest bringing #8 RoC Soleil Protexion Invisible Touch SPF 30 Atomizer Spray (C$24.00) with you.

If hummidity reeks havoc on your hair, try some soothing hair care stylers. Pick up: #4 Garnier Fructis Style Sleek & Shine Sleek Finish 5 in 1 Serum Spray (C$5.49, available July 2012) #5 Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Humidity Smoothing Milk (C$5.49, available July 2012), #6 John Frieda Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Hair Serum (C$15.99), #7 Herbal Essences Touchably Smooth Anti-Frizz Creme (C$4.99). Post-beach, add any needed texture and wave to your hair with #3 Marc Anthony Amplifying Texture Spray (C$14.99).
Your Purse Essentials

2. eos Everyday Hand Lotion (C$3.99) comes in a cute, spherical shape and smells ah-mazing!

I try to take as little as possible to the beach. In a small draw string bag I put in sunscreen, refillable ice water in bottle with a thermal cover, wipes, a small brush, a small amount of money, hair tie, towel and lip balm with an SPF. I try not to wear make-up so I get an even tan without smears.
