Beauty Bag Essentials for Labor Day Weekend (and Beyond)


Before you shake the sand out of your beach tote for the last time, there’s still one more (official) weekend of summer revelry to be had. So make this a great one, with our newest beauty products (aka “the keepers”) that have earned a permanent place in our weekend bag.

Restorsea Reviving Cleanser:  As tough on removing stubborn eye makeup as it is gentle on beach-baked skin. This cleanser will soon be migrating from our weekender to our gym bag.

Tarte Park Ave Princess Bronze & Glow Matte Bronzer & Cheek Tint: This multitasking wonder is a dual blush stick and bronzer that imparts a sun-kissed glow that makes you look as if you’ve been out paddleboarding all day (when you were actually slicked down in SPF and huddled under an umbrella reading Marisha Pessl’s addictive new novel, Night Film).

Intelligent Nutrients Bug Repellent Perfume Serum: Insect repellent may not be a year-round sort of thing, but this blend of organic essential oils doubles as an earthy perfume (one friend said, “You smell like a yoga teacher—but in a good way.”)

It Haircare Surf Spray: We first tried this Surf Spray when it arrived in our Fab Fit Fun box. This particular seasonal gift box has sold out by now, though there’s still time to sign up for next season’s goodies. But this spray (which you can snag on ), gives shape and texture to fine locks.

Sun Bum SPF 30 Pomegranate Lip Balm: Unlike other lip balms with SPF we’ve tried, this one offered serious protection without drying out our lips. On a more superficial note, the monkey wearing sunglasses never ceases to make us smile and the taste had us licking our lips all day long.
