Beach Bag

No beauty editor would dare brave a day at the beach or pool without the right sunscreen and other skin-saving must-haves. Here’s an inside look at what NewBeauty staffers just can’t be without. 

1 / 7

Maui Babe Browning Lotion, $14, ulta.com

“Tanning lotions typically leave me pretty burnt, but this coffee-scented one works wonders when you apply it to your legs (just be sure to apply sunscreen first!). It leaves skin glistening, golden and never red.” – Liz Ritter, Executive Managing Editor

2 / 7

Glossier Soothing Face Mist, $18, glossier.com

“I always have this in my beach bag. It refreshes and soothes my skin after hours of being exposed to the summer sun.” – Leiana Briganti, Digital Coordinator

3 / 7

Sisley Sunleya Age Minimizing Sunscreen Cream SPF 50, $300, net-a-porter.com

“I am a die-hard fan of this nonirritating, never chalky antioxidant-rich sunscreen. My face never sees the sun without a layer of it. (Hint: it works wonders under makeup, too!)” – Elise Minton, Executive Beauty Editor

4 / 7

Avene Ultra-Light Hydrating Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 Face, $24, drugstore.com

“I waited years to find the perfect face sunscreen and this one finally fits the bill. The matte finish it gives my skin is key—I don’t feel or look greasy, and it doesn’t leave white streaks behind. It also provides a water-resistant shield from the sun’s rays, which you really can’t go the beach without. Trust me, this one is a winner.” – Brittany Burhop, Senior Editor

5 / 7

NARS the Multiple in Orgasm, $39, sephora.com

“I always feel confident when I know I have this multipurpose stick close by. I like to dab it on my cheeks for instant dewiness or swipe it on my lips for the perfect beach pout.” – Danielle Fontana, Editorial Intern

6 / 7

Murad Water Resistant Sunscreen, $30, murad.com

“When I hit the beach, finding a sunscreen that won’t leave behind pesky white streaks is a must, which is why I pack this one from Murad. The broad-spectrum SPF 30 protection and waterproof and easy-to-apply formula make this a beach bag must-have for me.” – Margaret McGriff, Senior Web Editor 

7 / 7

Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance Lotion Sunscreen, $7, target.com

“This is one product that I always have in my beach bag. It glides on skin supersmooth for an easy application that isn’t greasy or sticky. I love the tropical scent, too, which always makes me think of summer.” –Leah Goldblatt, Editorial Assistant
