Summer Beach Beauty Essentials!

by Mel | Dec 09, 2015

Hi TGs!


I'm all about the beach at the moment - Sydney has had the most amazing weather! I've been going every weekend and sometimes, even in the afternoon during the week! I don't just like to swim and hang about in the water though. My favourite thing is taking a ball down to the beach, like a soft one, and doing "count to 10". Basically you have to have a group, and one person hits the ball up with their hand, and someone else has to hit it up again when it comes down. But coz you're in the waves, it's REALLY HARD to get it sometimes and it's so funny!


Coz I'm loving the beach so much I thought I'd share my fave beach beauty essentials with you. I always have these in my bag!

Hair brush 

Wet Brush Detangling Hair Brush in Pastel Green, $14.95 

I love these brushes because they make detangling my curly hair really easy. The bristles bend so there's almost no pulling happening! 

Everyday Clear Spray

Banana Boat EveryDay Clear Spray SPF 50+, $16.99

It's so so important to keep re-applying sunscreen so you don't get burnt. I like these mist ones because they're really easy to get on, so you can quickly get out of the water, dry off, mist it on, and they dry pretty quickly so you can get back in the water in no time!

Scunci Hair Ties

Scunci Active 6pk Knotted Ponytailers, $6.95

When I get out of the water my hair looks SO GROSS, so I like having a cute colourful hairtie to sweep it up into a messy bun. Then it looks really cute!


What are your beach essentials? And have you been swimming a lot in this lovely hot weather?

    I always wear a cute beach dress over my bikini because it is so easy just to put on and off after I go for a swim. I am really into those Turkish towels at the moment too! Some of my other beach essentials include sunscreen, a hairbrush and my awesome Sunglasses!
