Top 5 Beach Bag Essentials | Boohoo

Top 5 Beach Bag Essentials | Boohoo
Although summer is clearly coming to an end (we're currently experiencing heavy downpour here in the UK), many of us still have a holiday to look forward to. And having just booked a very last minute return holiday to Kos, I thought it would be appropriate to share my top 5 beach bag essentials, along with the online place to shop for your beachwear.

Come late august the high street's beachwear offerings are frankly dire. And whilst many of us are eyeing up the stores latest A/W collections, I for one have a very large Boohoo holiday wish list! I've always relied on Boohoo for holiday wear. They have a holiday shop filled with holiday essentials all of which are very reasonably priced. 



1. SPF
You’d be a fool not to lather up with SPF. There is so much choice on the market from gel, creams and sprays, waterproof and all day formulas so make sure you pick something best suited for you. Remember SPF is your #1 holiday requirement so invest money into your protection and pack a body, face and lip SPF. My favourite brand of sunscreen is Piz Buin. It’s lightweight and non greasy.  

My skin gets parched after sitting in the sun and a hydrating mist does the job of taking that tight feeling away. My top choice is thAvène Thermal Water Spray, its soothing and anti-irritating. It is also great for helping to treat sunburn and prickly heat - and I can't stress how horrid this is.

Pack a beach cover up to throw over your swimwear. But remember you can still catch the sun through sheer clothing, so take cover under a parasol and pack a floppy hat!

Any bag should contain hand sanitiser. Need I tell you why? Soap & Glory offer the best antibacterial hand gel. It smells like grapefruit, dries quickly, isn’t sticky and costs just £2.50.

On holiday I’m a book whore, that may be little crass, but true, last year I read 4 books in the space of 7 days. So I always make sure I've packed my favourite paper back, or picked up a glossy magazine (or two) in the airport. On my trip to Greece back in June I read ‘I Let You Go’ by Clare Mackinstosh in less than 24 hours - highly recommend you give it a read, especially if you liked 'Gone Girl'! Any good book recommendations, leave them below.

Where do you shop for your beachwear and bag essentials?
