For an Oceanside Day Trip
Once your feet sink into the sandy beach, the last thing you want to think about is tending to your your skin and hair. Fill your beach tote with unfussy products that will work in concert with the elements around you, like sea salt hair spray (for applying while air-drying hair after you've taken a dip in the ocean), spray-on sunscreen, and cooling spray. Catch the drift—or wave, rather?
For Your Seventh Summer Wedding
A good summer wedding is an hours-long marathon of refreshing, bubbly cocktails, questionable dance moves, and, of course, that whole "marriage ceremony" part. With all the activity, you will want to pack a small shoulder bag with long-lasting formulas (and, for the hopeless romantics, like us, waterproof eye makeup) that you won't have to worry about constantly reapplying.
For Going From Stage to Stage at Your Favorite Music Festival
From Øya in Norway to Blissfield in the U.K. to Lollapalooza in Chicago, you've likely got at least one highly anticipated outdoor festival on your agenda this season. Convenience is key in this scenario—you'll want to ruthlessly streamline your things so that you don't waste any time digging around in your bag while you're trying to have fun. Wipes and stick applicators are your best bet for these all-day and all-night affairs.
For Hiking and Camping
Your hiking backpack stash is incomplete without essentials like bug spray and something that will keep you feel fresh. Layer on your sun-care before you get going for the day so that a sunburn doesn't end up slowing you down later.
