5 best beach beauty products

What are the best beach beauty products, and why do we need to take with them us? You might think all you need is sunscreen and a bikini for a day at the beach, but the truth is, you need a lot more if you want to stay looking and feeling like a true beach goddess. These are our essentials we wouldn’t be without…

Don’t forget….

…the detangling spray

With salt water, sand and a whole lot of sun, hair can become seriously tangled and dry. Don’t forget to throw a detangling spray in your beach beauty bag each day. We love the TIGI Bed Head Beach Freak Moisturising Spray which helps to soften strands and keep them looking healthy and soft.

Don’t forget to pair your detangling spray with an equally detangling brush. We love the Tangle Teezer Compact Styler, which is small enough to fit in your bag yet still manages to brush out any knots in one swift swoop. Plus, this gorgeous flamingo design is perfect for tropical climes.

…the SPF

This is an absolute essential product you cannot forget to pack. As you’re at the beach, choose a waterproof sunscreen such as the Ultrasun Very High SPF 50 Sports Spray. Not only does it have broad spectrum protection (learn more about that here), but it’s both waterproof and speedy to dry, so you can wade into the water soon after applying.

If you’re never out of the water, make sure you pack the Piz Buin Wet Skin Sun Spray in your beach beauty bag. It can be applied onto wet skin and still provides incredible protection.

If you’re a beach beauty but hate the feeling of sand sticking to your sunscreen, you will love the Vichy Ideal Soleil Anti-Sand Cream. It protects against both UVA and UVB yet has an ultra-dry finish which prevents sand from sticking to it.

…a matte primer

A day at the beach calls for minimal makeup, but we can’t compromise on a mattifying primer. Sunscreen, sweat and water can leave the complexion looking fairly shiny, which is why we love The Ordinary’s High-Adherence Silicone Priemer. Blurring the complexion for a poreless and smooth finish, it’s also oil-free and keep the skin looking matte all day long.

…a cooling mist

It can get seriously hot while you’re sunbathing, which is why we never forget to pack a cooling mist in our beach beauty bag. We love the Lumene Lähde Nordic Hydra Arctic Spring Water Enriched Facial Mist, which contains purified Arctic spring water and mineral-rich Nordic birch sap to replenish lost hydration and keep moisture levels within the skin high.

Spritz throughout the day whenever you need a cooling and refreshing boost.

…a waterproof mascara

We don’t always want to leave out wearing mascara, especially when wearing no other makeup. Just a little flick of the wand and your eyes appear brighter and more awake. A day by the sea however requires a waterproof formula; beach racoon is not the look we are going for.

One of our favourite formulas is the MAC False Lashes Waterproof Mascara. It has an incredible 12 hours of staying power and gives the lashes a lengthened and volumised look. Plus, the oil-resistant formula coats the lashes for a soft and silky feel so it doesn’t flake or crumble away.



Skincare Specialist

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
