This season’s best frizz-fighting, statement-making, skin-softening essentials can be in your beach bag for $15 or less.
Burt’s Bees Honey and Shea Sugar Scrub ($13) – Don’t slather on the self-tanner without prepping your skin first. This deliciously scented scrub—which rivals scrubs five times the price—exfoliates and feels like a real spa treatment.
Sally Hershberger Hyper Hydration Super Keratin Spray ($13) – A light leave-in moisturizing spray that seals split ends, tames frizz, and protects hair from the heat. Spritz it in before blow-drying or let hair air-dry into soft, tousled waves.
Johnson’s Baby Oil Gel ($5) – Gives legs and shoulders a sexy sheen without leaving a greasy residue behind.
Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition “A Powerful Punch” Mini Nail Set ($10) – A poppy coral, tropical teal, perfect fuchsia, and deep nude in one stashable set is all your fingers and toes will need this summer.
The Wet Brush ($15) – While it’s not much to look at, this brush detangles even the thickest, most unruly hair without damaging it. Use it after showering or popping out of pool for a quick and painless comb-through.
Sonia Kashuk Limited Edition “Bright Idea” 4-Piece Brush Set ($15) – Sonia keeps stepping up her game, pairing her award-winning makeup brushes with the prettiest colored handles and now this Palm Beach-y rattan case that could—and should—double as a clutch.
Yes to Cucumbers Calming Night Cream ($15) – After a day in the sun, there’s nothing more soothing than treating your skin to a cooling, hydrating mini-facial. The grape seed oil and aloe in this lightweight lotion help repair and moisturize skin while you sleep.
