Whether you’re headed to the cabin, beach or backyard bbq this week, don’t leave home without these sunny essentials:
Neutrogena Free & Clear Sunscreen SPF 50  ($13) – Ultra-light, water-proof, sweat-proof, oil- and fragrance-free, this clean and simple facial sunscreen is for all of you sensitive types—or anyone in need of utterly effective yet inexpensive sun protection.
Bobbi Brown Beach Fragrance  ($67.50) – Sand, surf and Hawaiian tropic in a bottle, Bobbi’s cult-favorite fragrance never gets old. A perfect gift for your holiday hostess, too.
Champneys Mediterranean Bliss Shimmering Body Oil  ($11) – Smooth this dry body oil onto shoulders and shins for a subtle gold shimmer and a hint of summery fragrance. It’s rumored to be popular on the set of Pretty Little Liars.
Bobbi Brown Crystal Lip Gloss  ($18) – Never underestimate the power of a shiny, clear lip gloss—an always-appropriate, girl-next-door shade that will complement every bathing suit and sundress in your closet.
Butter London 3-Free Lacquer in Snog  ($14) – The name might be British, but this punchy pink-red is about as all-American as nail polishes come. It’s also the only accessory you’ll need all weekend.
Kate Somerville 360 Self-Tanning Towelettes  ($48) – Give those pasty limbs a boost before you hit the beach. Swipe one of these individually packaged wipes over skin at night and wake up with a bronzed bod. Bonus: Works beautifully and totally safe for face, too!
Skyn Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths  ($15) – Wash away the day (and never again go to bed wearing makeup – tsk, tsk) in a single cooling, deep-cleansing and hydrating cloth. No water and minimal effort required.
Boscia BB Cream SPF 27  ($38) – If you haven’t tried a beauty balm, summer is the time. A skin-perfecting, hydrating yet mattyfing multi-tasker, this one is also smartly packed with sun protection for flawless coverage.
