Beach Beauty Essentials

Sydne-Style-beach-day-essentials-cvs-hairbrush-white-sunglasses-embellished-tunicThis past weekend, I had a birthday celebration with my friends at the beach. Being a Pisces, I’ve always been drawn to the ocean—and there is no other place I’d rather be in 90 degree weather! Before heading to Venice, I popped into CVS to get all my beach beauty essentials. They have everything you need to fill up your fave tote—which is especially helpful when you’re running late for your own party! And as a CVS Beauty Club member, I even got $3 ExtraBucks Rewards for my birthday.

For hair, a brush is a necessity. I loved all the fun colorful options at CVS (and my birthday ExtraBucks covered the cost). On the East Coast, the Atlantic ocean provides natural beach waves. But with the cold Pacific, I rarely take a dip. So I fake it with a sea salt spray.

Then for lips, I’ve been obsessed with cherry Chap Stick since I was a kid. I’ll sometimes layer a nourishing balm on top for a subtle pop of color. I also bring makeup wipes since I often find leftover mascara from the night before suddenly appears in the heat.

I hope my essentials help you when you’re packing your beach bag! And make sure to sign up to be a CVS Beauty Club member for savings all year… and for some birthday ExtraBucks on your special day.
