These Beachy Beauty Products Will Take Your Vacation Beauty to the Next Level

Or just rehaul your summer routine with them

Shiny, soft hair and dewy skin are the dream combo. Here are seven key products to help you achieve an effortless day-spent-on-the-beach look.

The OG Golden Girl

You may be hanging out on the beach, but that doesn’t mean you want wild, untamed hair. A spritz of L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray will give your hair shape without it looking shellacked. This legendary strong-hold product’s nozzle sprays an ultra-fine mist that easily brushes out. It’s available in a convenient travel-friendly size, is unfragranced and leaves your hair looking shiny and soft to the touch without it feeling sticky or stiff. It also protects against the dreaded humidity-induced frizzies.

Beauty tip: Hold the can about 30 centimetres away and spray in quick, short bursts.

Shining moment

Get silky-soft, shiny hair without that greasy feeling with L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Penetrating Oil. The luxe hair treatment contains six precious oils that permeate the hair fibres, leaving them smooth but not weighed down.

Beauty tip: It can be applied pre-shampoo to boost nutrition, before blow-drying to protect hair from heat or on dry hair to boost shine and remove any beach-vacay frizz.

Rapid Conditioning

Sun, chlorine and salt can be hard on your hair, but with L’Oréal Paris Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner, you go from blah to fab in one minute. The formula contains 20 per cent conditioning serum with almond oil and protein.

Beauty tip: After shampooing and rinsing, apply to wet hair from below the ear to the tips. Leave on for one minute and then rinse. It’s your 60-second solution for soft, shiny hair that gently moves in the breeze.

Solid Foundations

Achieve a luminous, natural-looking, dewy glow with L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Foundation with SPF 20. It contains 40 per cent pure water for all-day hydration and antioxidants vitamin C and E to improve skin’s clarity and tone. It has a creamy texture and blends in easily.

Beauty tip: Start with a thin, sheer layer and build more coverage as needed during the day.

Lip Service

You’ll feel bare-lipped with the lightweight but intensely pigmented L’Oréal Paris Rouge Signature Matte Colour Ink. It comes in 18 shades, and the precision applicator makes it easy to apply.

Beauty tip: Apply to the centre of your upper lip and work out toward the edges, and then glide it across your bottom lip.


Get a natural bronzed look without spending time directly in the sun with the new L’Oréal Paris Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Towelettes. Each towel is infused with DHA (a colouring agent) as well as vitamin E (to help smooth and soften skin). It’s perfect for on-the-go touch-ups while you’re on holiday, dries quickly and starts to appear in two hours. It’s super-easy to apply, the look is streak-free and there’s no mess.

Beauty tip: Apply to exfoliated skin, and use sparingly around your elbows, knees and ankles. Typically, one towelette is saturated with enough product to cover your entire body.

Pump Up the Volume

If you’re in and out of the water, you want a mascara that leaves your lashes looking long, luscious and smudge-proof. With its silky formula, the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Waterproof Mascara glides on easily and has a soft brush with 200+ bristles.

Beauty tip: Twirl the wand in the tube to coat the bristles, but don’t pump it up and down; this pushes air into the tube, which can make the mascara dry and clumpy.
