What I have in my beach bag?

Summer is finally here! Now its time for tanning, going to the beach, swimming, barbecues, and much more! I decided to do a post about what I have in my beach bag and I'll post reviews of the main products. I have so many it would be such a long post, plus it would take forever! I hope that everyone will enjoy this post! (: I will first list all the products. After I will review.

In my beach bag:
Breathe: Delight Lotion
Tampax Pearls
Aveeno Sunscreen Spray SPF 45
Ipod & Headphones
Stride Gum*
The Heartbreakers (Book)
Cell phone
Kanka (numbing stuff for braces sores)
Blush Brush*
Mini Stila Convertible Color*
Burt's Bee's Lip Shimmer*
Clinique SPF 40 Moisturizer*
Physicians Formula Eye Shadow Palette*
Hair Tie*
Bobby Pin*
Clean and Clear Blotting Sheets*
Neutrogena Healthy Blends Oil Controlling Powder*
Color Science Sunforgettable SPF 30 Waterproof Powder*

When this symbol * appears by some of the products it means that these are in my make-up kit for my purse or bag.

Tampax Pearls:
I put these in my bag because you can never be too sure when your period will come. These are easy to insert and the round plastic tip makes it comfortable. You can get these in scented or unscented. These tampons are my favorite because they are easy to take along and they are easily inserted.

Aveeno Sunscreen Spray SPF 45:
This sunscreen is fantastic. Not only does it have SPF 50 and is waterproof it keeps working as long as your in the sun! In AZ the sun is very intense. For instance you can stand out there without sunscreen in the sun for 5 minutes and get sunburn. Its not fun. Ever since I have been using this sunscreen I haven't gotten burnt once!

Mini Stila Convertible Color:
I got this as a free sample when I was at Sephora one day. I like to use this as a touch up to my make-up. Like after I am done going swimming and want to fix my make-up I use this. You can use it as blush, eyeshadow, or lip color. I mostly use mine as blush. It goes on cream and then rubs in as a powder.

Burt's Bee's Lip Shimmer:
I have the color Champagne. This lip shimmer protects your lips from getting sunburned and wind burned but adds color to your fabulous lips. Its creamy and soft and has a minty smell. Plus it doesn't taste to bad either. I have been using this product for about 2 years now. I love every bit of it. I have over 5 different colors out of the many Burt's Bee's have.

Clinique SPF 40 Moisturizer:
Once again this was another sample I got when I was shopping at Clinique. I wouldn't buy the big size of this moisturizer because I already have a cheap moisturizer that works just as well. I love this product though because it has a high SPF in it and I just reapply when I think my moisturizer has lost its use.

Clean and Clear Blotting Sheets:
These blotting sheets are my savior! I have oily skin and I can fix it in the morning but as the day processes my oily skin comes back. So when it does I just pull one out and gently blot my face with it and it removes all the oil. They also have a very fresh clean scent.

Neutrogena Healthy Blends Oil Controlling Powder:
This powder is a translucent one that I use after I use the Clean and Clear blotting sheets. I like to freshen up and make my skin look flawless again. So I just brush some across my face and it also prevents oily skin.

Color Science Sunforgettable SPF 30 Waterproof Powder:
This powder I bought online at DermStore. It works as a powder that hides blemishes and gives your face a pretty shimmer. I like this product the best because it is waterproof and has a great SPF in it! I always like making sure my skin isn't getting harmed by the sun! The one I bought is small but I got it for 14 dollars and the big size is 30 dollars. Its a lot of money but I seriously think its worth it. First by the small size and if you like it buy the bigger size. If you don't like it you can always return it for a refund.

Hope that these tips and reviews help you in the summer!
