I am winding down two fab-u-lous weeks at the beach, and noticed myself loving these 5 products, and wearing them everyday. Ironically, they can each be purchased at the drug-store, and are all less than $12! As you embark on your own sea-side adventures this summer, I highly recommend packing each of these in your beach bag!

1. Rimmel BB Cream :: This is my favorite beauty discovery in a long time, thanks to the recommendation of my amazing wedding photographer and friend, Anne Almasy! This BB cream delivers the perfect amount of coverage and luminous glow, while keeping my face matte. I use it on days when I am in a hurry {most days!} because it replaces my moisturizer and also contains SPF. It is the ultimate multi-tasking product and costs a mere $6.99!

2. Physicians Formula Shimmer Strips :: In my opinion, this is the much more affordable version of Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick {which I have used and loved for years}. This multi-colored shimmery compact can be used as a bronzer, blush and eye-shadow, and adds a perfect glow on top of sun-kissed skin. I added a little of this to my cheeks and eyelids each day and evening while at the beach, and loved the effect.

3. L’oreal Sublime Sun SPF 50 :: My skin tends to be on the oily side {especially in humid weather} and can break out easily. I have been pleased with this sunscreen for my face {and used the spray-on version for my body} this beach trip, as it has thoroughly protected my skin from burning and has kept my face break-out free. I layered this under the Rimmel BB cream for the beach, and loved the effect of the two together for combining intense sun protection with some coverage!

4. Maybelline Baby Lips with SPF :: My lips can easily get sunburned, and this formula kept them soft and burn-free the entire vacation. Love the feel of this moisturizing balm!

5. Essie “Sunday Funday” Nail Polish :: I mentioned this pretty shade on Monday’s nail polish post. This was my “signature color” this vacation for both my fingers and toes, and I absolutely love it! It is the perfect coral-watermelon shade, with a small touch of glitter. I will be wearing this color a lot all summer!

Stylishly yours,
