One of the things that I used to look forward to when I was young were our family summer trips. We would often get together with my mom and dad’s friends and go to the beach. We’d load up our van, prepare our sandwiches for the road, we’d go to the grocery to stock up on chips and drinks, and as soon as we get to the beach, it becomes a test of patience because our parents wouldn’t let us dive in to the waters immediately. We had to change into our swimming gear, pile on loads and loads of sunscreen and wait for an adult to accompany us. At the time it definitely felt like torture, especially the sunscreen bit because hello – I just want to feel the sand on my feet and the salt water on my skin – it was a challenge to stand still while I had sunscreen slathered on me haha.
These days though, I find myself more and more concerned about my skin and my hair – two elements that take a beating whenever summer rolls in and summer getaways abound. I always stock up on sunscreen, a hair oil of some sort to stop my hair from drying out and an insect repellent haha! I have a few getaways planned with friends and family for the summer so I’ve been preparing my summer kit – and while I was doing so, I thought hey, why not share these with my readers? YES guys, I am giving away a set of products which I think are essential for any summer getaway (or even to use everyday, given our tropical summer heat haha)! Included in this giveaway are the following:
Sowell Dry Hair Comb
I hate walking around with dripping wet hair at the beach haha, that’s why when I saw this, I thought this would be perfect for all of you beach babes – it says the microfiber hair brush will shorten your hair’s drying time.
Skin Genie Healthy Sunscreen with Insect Repellent, Mousturizer and SPF75
While I do love a good tan, I am afraid of the damage the sun causes on our skin. It’s important to always apply sunscreen and this is great because it works as a insect repellent too! You can stay out at night, have a romantic stroll along the coast (yihee) or party the night away without having to worry about insects biting you!
Beach Born Sunset Spray
We should always take care of our crowning glory – split and frayed ends are a no-no; and frizzy and dry hair is not nice to look at! Spray this to protect your hair from the heat and sunlight!
Farmstay It’s Real Aloe Gel Mist
After a couple of hours at the beach, this refreshing face mist is definitely going to be a treat! I sometimes keep mine in the fridge so it’s extra cooling and I have been loving it.
Sooperbeaute Lip and Cheek Rolly in Darling
I think when you are at the beach, it is best to go with minimal make up and give your skin a chance to breathe. I thought a lip and cheek tint would work really well and this one from Sooperbeaute is easy to use, very pigmented and lasts a good number of hours!
Blue Floral Travel Pouch
Of course, you’ll need somewhere to put all of these in so I am also giving away this really nice, very helpful/functional travel pouch. I have a few of these – one in the car, one for my planner supplies and one that I use as a medicine bag and I am sure you will like this as much as I do!
