5 Items In Our Beach Bag This Summer

July 6, 2024

While it feels like a long time coming, hot temps have finally hit the West Coast. We were greeted with sunny skies and warm weather this past long weekend, so we headed to the beach. These items in our current beach bag keep us ready for a day out in the sun. —Vicki Duong

yves rocher. No day spent outdoors is complete without our daily sunscreen ($30), and the one of Yves Rocher has quickly become a go-to. Infused with natural botanical extracts, this sunscreen protects and nourishes your skin, leaving it soft and hydrated. Its lightweight, non-greasy texture makes it perfect for daily use, ensuring comfort without clogging pores or causing breakouts. 

friday harbour. A good beach blanket is the ultimate accessory for any beachgoer, offering both style and functionality. Friday Harbour’s Cloud Towel ($98) provides a comfortable and spacious oversized surface for lounging, picnicking, or enjoying a day by the water. It’s antibacterial and made with sustainable materials that add comfort, while its sand-resistant and quick-drying features ensure easy maintenance and a hassle-free experience. Best of all? It can be machine-washed.

sorel. Part of keeping cool and staying chic in the summer is the right pair of sandals. We are loving these Sorel’s fisherman platform sandals ($160), an ultra-comfy leather strappy choice that pairs well with your casual beach fit and sundresses alike. These sandals are not just comfortable, they are versatile, adding a trendy lift to any outfit while ensuring stability and cushioning.

dermalogica. Get your skin beach-ready from head to toe with the Clarifying Bacne Spray ($35) from Dermalogica. Formulated with salicylic acid and soothing botanicals, this spray targets and treats bacne, reducing breakouts and inflammation. Its convenient spray design allows easy application, ensuring even coverage on hard-to-reach areas. 

bonlook. A must-have for your beach bag and daily handbag alike, a good pair of sunnies not only gives you a Hollywood glam look but protects your eyes from the sun’s harmful rays. We love the Henriette style ($199) from BonLook, a classic square metal frame with an oversized fit and designed in collaboration with with Canadian actress Sara-Jeanne Labrosse.
