Spring Break is here so it’s time to pack up your floppy straw hat and other fun-in-the-sun gear. Sandals? Check. Sunglasses? Double check. Cute bikinis? Check, check and check. But have you checked off your beauty essentials yet?
Don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Here are our picks for the best beauty products to pack for your Spring Break vacay.
If you do choose to wear makeup at the beach, it’s important that you’re diligent about taking it off at the end of the day. Sweat and makeup are a recipe for breakouts, so be sure to treat your face right with these cleansing wipes from Sephora – each packed with a skin-refreshing benefit.
Elizabeth Arden has created the first-of-its-kind invisible skin shield to combine pollution and UV protection with enzyme complex to strengthen skin. The formula provides sheer, hydrating protection to protect your face against all of Mother Nature’s elements.
Using a blend of olive fruit and avocado oils with lemon extract, this shampoo and conditioner combo from Kiehl’s is specifically designed to replace lost moisture, soften and repair frayed strands. It’s perfect for saving hair from wind, sun, and surf damage.
This vegan-friendly tanning oil is all-natural and will give you a deep golden glow while hydrating your skin. The SPF 6 provides protection from UV rays while the nourishing oil formula can treat dry and eczema prone skin. If you want to get a serious tan this Spring Break, you need this tanning oil.
If you’re going to head into the sun’s harmful rays, you need a good sunscreen. This high performance and non-greasy mineral lotion has a natural citrus scent and contains certified organic ingredients that protect and moisturize sun-damaged skin. So go ahead and have your fun in the sun – just remember to reapply every 1-2 hours.
Coola’s Mineral Liplux lip balm adds a hint of natural colour while protecting, nourishing and conditioning your lips. With organic cupuacu butter and mongongo oil, plus SPF 30 protection, your lips will be safe from the sun’s rays with Coola.
Aside from the oh-so cooling sensation it gives skin, we love how Clinique’s do-it-all balm helps to minimize that post-burn peeling. This oil-free after sun balm can be used on both the face and body to prevent today’s sun exposure from becoming tomorrow’s visible damage.
This mascara has all the benefits of the BADgal formula – thick lashes, full volume, dark hue – but with the added bonus of being waterproof! Its spiral brush will add volume and length while separating your lashes, all while keeping them perfect for the pool.
Vacation makeup needs to be super fast and super easy. This stick foundation glides on easily and covers with a translucent finish that allows your natural glow to shine through. It also contains a unique Greek resin that refines pores while you wear it.
The Multiple from Nars really does it all. The multi-purpose makeup stick can be used for blush, lip colour, contouring and even eye colour. Vacation makeup requires a colour product that can work for either day or night and in multiple ways, and this product is the only one you’ll need.
