When hitting the beach you don’t want to be loaded down with a bunch of products – better to keep room on your beach bag for fun stuff like books, magazines or frisbees!

Shoppers Drug Mart is an amazing one stop shop for all your beach beauty essentials! Here are a few things I think you should pack with you for a day of fun in the sun.


Obviously sunscreen is an ESSENTIAL! I can’t stress the importance of wearing sun protection daily, but especially when you’ll be out in the sun all day. Apply sunscreen generously at least 30 minutes before exposure to the sun and be sure to re-apply often throughout the day; especially after sweating or swimming. Try: Sunthera 3 Sheer Lotion ($10.99).


Speaking of sun protection, be sure to bring along those sunglasses! This is one of the beach beauty essentials you definitely can’t leave home without. Your eyes are especially sensitive to the sun’s rays so be sure you’re protecting those precious peepers! Choose from a variety of Stylize Sunglasses ($14.99 – $22.99).

Cleansing Cloths

You might not think of cleansing cloths on the list of beauty beach essentials but these handy wipes are perfect for a day at the beach. Not only do they work to fix makeup mishaps, but they’re a great way to refresh yourself on a hot day. Use them on your hands and feet too for sand that’s hard to remove. Try: Life Brand 3-in-1 Cleansing Cloths ($8.99).

Hair Elastics

Nothing can be more annoying than a windy day at the beach with your hair in your face. Be sure to have a bunch of hair elastics handy so you’re not spending your time removing hair from your eyes or your mouth! Pick up the Stylized No Snag Hair Elastics ($7.49).


For me, lipstick is definitely on my beach beauty essentials list! Just because you’re enjoying the outdoors doesn’t mean you can have fun with makeup too! Pick a lipstick or gloss that’s easy to apply and comfortable to wear on your lips. Try: any of the Joe Fresh lip products (prices vary).

Nail Polish

Here’s another product you might be wondering about. I included this on my list of essentials for the beach because I think spending the day outdoors and by the water is a great opportunity for a quick nail touch up! Obviously this activity is likely weather dependent – unless you’re going for the textured look! Try Quo By Orly polishes ($9.99)

Oil Blotting Sheets

When you’re spending your day outdoors, you’re likely to get a little bit shiny. While some shine is nice for that natural looking glow, being able to see someone’s reflection in your forehead is never ideal; especially if you’ll likely be taking beach selfies! Instead of lugging around a powder for touch ups, oil blotting sheets are the perfect way to get rid of excess oil with ease. Check out Life Clear Action Oil Absorbing Sheets ($7.79).

So there you have it, a list of some of my beach beauty essentials! What are your beach essentials?

You can conveniently pick up all these products (and many more!) at your local Shoppers Drug Mart.
