Poolside Essentials | #MiniSummerEdit2019






Hello loves,

Now seeing as my Mini Spring Edit was such a success and a lot of you seemed to love it I thought I would a Summer Edit. I'm going to do it just like my last one so it involves Beauty, Life and Style. There might be 4 posts in this mini series instead of 3 as I had another post idea pop into my head so I thought I would add it in.

This post is going to be based on my Poolside Essentials as I know a lot of you are going on holiday in the next few months. Although Josh and I haven't got anything booked we are hopefully going at the end of September so I will be using these poolside essentials for when I do go away.

Suncream:
Probably the most important product for the poolside is suncream. I like to use SPF 30 all over my body and on my face and I top myself up throughout the day. Now I do use an oil too to get the most out of my skin but I use that over my SPF 30. This is just a cute little travel size from Nivea I like to have in my hang bag during the summer months.

Deodorant:
This might not be an essential for everyone but if I'm going to the beach or going for lunch whilst by the pool sometimes I like to freshen up during the day. I change up my deodorant all the time so at the moment I'm using the Sure Invisible {Pure} and this is perfect as it doesn't leave white marks on the underarms so win win!

Sunglasses:
These are such a necessity on my handbag and to be honest I carry them with me all year round. My sunglasses are prescription anyways as I like to use them when reading and also walking out and about. I find if I don't wear sunglasses then my eyes tend to water a lot from all the squinting! I've had my sunglasses for about 2 years and I brought them from Specsavers as part of the Tommy Hilfiger range.

Book/Magazine:
I could read several books throughout my holiday so having something to read is a must have. I love light-hearted romantic books when I'm away so I recently finished the Sophie Kinsella I've Got Your Number novel and this is exactly the poolside read I like. A full review will be coming soon on the blog.

Anti- Bacterial Hand Gel:
A bit OTT I know but I seriously hate germs especially on my hands and I carry anti back EVERYWHERE with me. I even have one in my car and on my desk at work. Sometimes I use anti-bac gel to just freshen up my hands if they are hot or if I'm going to lunch and I just want to give them a bit of a clean from all the sun cream I've been using.

Beach Towel:
Well this very much a must have in my beach bag but I am the sort of person that likes a pretty looking beach towel so this one with a MASSIVE watermelon on is exactly my style and screams out summer. I brought this from Tesco last summer but they have plenty of new ones this year.

Perfume:
Like deodorant this is not really a must have in everyone's beach bag but again if I want to freshen up when leaving the pool for lunch or taking a walk then a spritz of perfume does the job. This one in particular from New Look is perfect to throw in the bag and it's not too expensive either that I don't want to use it. I also mentioned this one in my June Favourites post too.

Lip Balm:
Finally a little savour for my lips is Vaseline or some sort of lip balm. The sun really dries my skin up so I like to keep them hydrated and soft all day long. I find sometimes Vaseline can go quite soft in the sun but if you keep it in the shade you will be fine. Also the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream is another savour for the lips but sadly I ran out of this and haven't repurchased yet.


What are your Poolside Essentials?

Lots of love Chloe x

  1. I don’t go anywhere without hand sanitiser. I think a book and sunglasses are absolutely essential. I could spend hours just reading by the pool!
