When you're feeling a little grimy after spending all day in the sun and sand, give yourself a quick rubdown with Ahava Refreshing Body Spa Towelettes ($7). It's like a face wipe for your entire body — it'll leave you feeling clean, soft, and hydrated.
Whether it's eye-searingly bright on the beach or dusky during cocktail hour, a vibrant manicure and pedicure are the perfect attention grabbers. China Glaze Nail Polish in Glow With the Flow ($5) isn't just superbright, but it also glows under black light (totally fun for the club)!
It's time to stop skipping out on SPF just because it smells bad . . . because you no longer have that excuse. Coola's Cucumber Mineral Face Sunscreen SPF 30 ($36) has a refreshing cucumber scent and a flawless matte finish, ideal for sweaty climes.
Waterproof Mascara Topcoat
If you're obsessed with your eyelashes, you know that switching to a waterproof formula can leave you with a disappointingly drama-free fringe. Not so with NYX Proof It! Waterproof Mascara Topcoat ($7). This genius product lets you apply your favorite mascara, then lock in your look with just a few strokes.
Multipurpose Makeup Palette
Even if you're a beauty junkie, you don't want to lug around a huge bag stuffed with tons of different cosmetic compacts. Urban Decay's Naked on the Run Palette ($54) contains everything you need (except concealer) to create a variety of looks and suits a wide range of skin tones.
If your sun-kissed glow is more like a painful red burn, you can still come home from your trip with a radiant tan. St. Tropez Bronzing Mousse ($32) is easy to apply and looks like the real thing, due to the formula's muted green hues that cancel out any Oompa Loompa orange ones.
