Must Have Monday - What's in my beach bag?
Hey Ya'll!! So, if you follow me on twitter, instagram or facebook you know that I am currently in Cabo and loving it! It's our first family trip since having Camden, so I am soaking up every second! The wifi isn't too great here, so excuse the quick post today. I did, however, want to give a little run down on what I have found extremely helpful in my beach bag since I arrived. Of course its stock full with a ton of other essentials, but here are some must haves I had to share.
Mustela Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Mineral Sunscreen: This stuff is amazing. It goes on like a lotion, and quickly absorbs. This has been my go to since I have been here. Not only is it good for babies, but I've been using it too. It has the best ingredients you can find (only titanium and zinc oxide), plus its paraben, PABA, fragrance, phthalate, and phenoxyethanol free! No junk or gunk in this. It's also hypoallergenic and has been given the top approvals from a slew of dermatologists and the Melanoma Institute. I seriously love that its not super thick and doesn't leave a paste on your skin for hours. Water and sweat resistant up to 40 minutes!
Mustela Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Mineral Sunscreen Stick: Benefits of this are the same as above, but I love this for my face. I've been freckle free thus far :) I've also been using their new hydrating spray (its not in my bag as its for after sun and up in my room). It's made with jojoba oil and leaves a non oily feel and amazing fragrance to your skin! It's the perfect cooling effect after a nice day in the sun. Also great for momma or baby :)
Ray Ban Polarized Aviators: I literally live in these. Being in the California sun, it is a must to have amazing UV protection in your sunglasses. The Mexico sun is no different. These guys are super durable (I drop them daily) and the polarized lens is a must in protection.
My Zoobug Sunglasses: I love these new glasses made for younger babies. They come in 7 different colors, and is 100% UV protected. The frame is made from flexible, light memory plastic with soft cushioning rubber arms to make sure they stay on. Zoobug's quality is fantastic, which is ideal for those holidays that require good quality sunglasses.
Plum Organics Stage 2 pouches: Great for a hungry lunch on the go. If you use the spoon it comes with you can attach it to the end, which is even more efficient for travel!
Kai Deodorant: This stuff smells so fresh, and is great for beach or pool time. It's an aluminum free deodorant that contains chamomile and Vitamin E too, which is a plus.
Honest Baby Wipes: I've been using the travel packs in the bag, great size for all the clean up.
iPlay Sunhat: Cute on the baby, and a must have to protect their sweet skin!
