9 Summer Bag Essentials

What's the most important thing you can have in your summer tote and why? Sunscreen. It does more than protect against sunburns, it protects against long-term effects that are not always visible, like skin damage and skin cancer.

Summer has just begun and the kids and I have already enjoyed many outdoor activities creating amazing memories so far. With much of the fun and busy summer still ahead of us, it's important that I have all we need to enjoy our sunny days. Whether we're headed to the beach, water park or the pool, I take my tote that's filled with all my summer essentials. I have everything I need from sun protection to my water-proof camera so that I can capture some awesome photos to look back on.


Outdoor summer activities can be hosted in different locations and under different conditions and Banana Boat® has some great products that offer multi-skin benefits, like water-resistance, ease of application and comfort to best fit your needs. Whatever sun scene you and your family choose, Banana Boat® has you covered.

My favorite product is the Banana Boat® sunscreen stick. This wonderful little stick makes it so much easier to apply sunscreen to our faces and hard to reach areas.

  1. Sunscreen  - A variety of Banana Boat® forms & SPF levels
     to insure proper protection.

  6. Hair brush - A must have for those with long locks.
