Summer Essentials

This all-in-one protective cream enlists castor oil to protect the hair from sun damage while olive oil and other fatty acids condition and reverse the drying effects of saltwater and chlorine.

Spend hours in the sun and still feel ultra fresh with this safe mineral-based roll-on deodorant that blocks odors and dries instantly without any residue.

Soothe congested post-sun skin with this purifying spray toner. It uses witch hazel to heal overworked complexions and green tea to balance breakouts and reduce existing inflammation.

If your day includes some beach volleyball or seaside yoga, you need to have Côte Protective Base and Top Coat on standby to protect your painted fingers and toes. It acts as a UV absorber, which protects colored nails from fading and becoming brittle.

This cruelty-free and organic tinted balm with SPF 15 is lightweight and allows for buildable coverage and easy reapplication.

Stop sweat pimples and opt for this lightweight formula that has been clinically tested to prevent clogged pores and breakouts.

On hot beach days, we reach for this light, vegan fragrance to spritz away the smell of sweat and sand. Its trifecta of salty ocean notes, jasmine and specialty mint makes it super versatile.

Nourish dry hands, rough elbows and chapped heels with this luscious body cream that’s free of parabens, artificial coloring and mineral oil.

Stash this ultra-light cooling mist in your bag to give your face and a body an instant refresh. It uses cactus extract to provide redness relief from sun-drenched skin and aloe vera and prickly pear to detoxify the body of pollutants and other environmental toxins.

Keep your products easily accessible and protected from spilling and leaking in your bag with this water-resistant, tropical-printed pouch.
