I don’t know about you, but I love packing my beach bag ready for a day of laying on a sunbed and paddling in the sea.


Here are my favourite products from my beach bag whilst in Mauritius, and why I love them!





Hawaiian Tropic Protective Dry Oil Spray – this is my all time favourite summer product! It has a lovely tropical coconut smell which I adore, and it always leaves you glowing. My ultimate holy grail.


Nivea Sun Protect & Moisture Sun Spray – shhh, don’t tell my mum, but I haven’t been the best with sun cream this week! I rarely tan, let alone burn, so I just use this on my shoulders and chest, the places that are prone to burning, to protect my skin.


Piz Buin After Sun Lotion – I seem to always be buying this stuff, probably because I love using it so much! Moisturising using this after sun lotion feels amazing and really helps your skin to recover from the drying-effect of the sun. It also has a tan intensifying plant extract to help double the production of the skin’s natural tanning!


Malibu Hair and Scalp Protection – being blonde and fair, I’m always weary of my scalp burning when I’m out in the sun, so this spray is perfect! It’s not greasy at all, and is definitely a handy little product to have in your beach bag.





Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream – I use this as my every day moisturiser and have done for quite a while now. It’s so important to moisturise when you’re spending all day in the sun, so the way this products locks in moisture for all-day hydration is perfect, and it always leaves you feeling fresh.


Body Shop Shea Lip Butter – this lip balm leaves your lips feeling soft and smooth and I’m constantly re-applying it for hydration and a gorgeous shine.


MAC Angel Lipstick – this was one of my little duty free purchases as my one at home has almost run out, and lipstick is the perfect touch when wearing less make-up during the summer. I love nudes and light pinks, and usually either wear Angel or Pretty Please. I decided to go for Angel whilst in Mauritius as it has more colour and less shimmer than Pretty Please, perfect for summer!




Now time to relax and soak up the sun!


Do you have any products you swear by for beach season? Let me know!
