In recent years, the beauty industry has really embraced technology, as evidenced YSL’s latest eyeshadow palette featuring Facebook blue. As a proud techie, I’ve also been fascinated by the ways that technology has helped people like me learn about makeup, whether it’s by watching makeup tutorials or learning about BB creams through online research. And hands down, my favorite tech device is my iPad.
Along with a few other essentials like vintage sunglasses and sunscreen, my iPad has been my constant companion this summer. But after my latest adventure in the city, I noticed that the back of my iPad had some tragically visible scratches. With a beach trip and plenty of other jaunts in my future, I knew it was time to get serious about keeping my MVP device protected. Here are four summer-bright iPad cases (including one exclusive Birchbox number!) worth checking out. Think of them as SPF for your iPad.
- Echo Design Clearly Cool Beach Set, $38
These transparent carrying cases are brand new to the Birchbox Shop, and I’m already in love with them. The pink and orange colors are perfect for summer, and the durable plastic provides much-need protection against sand and water. Best of all, you can still use your devices while they’re safely zipped inside.
- BAGGU® Case for iPad, $28
It’s no secret that Birchbox is a huge fan of BAGGU®—we all have a serious girl crush on founder Emily Sugihara. BAGGU® makes iPad sleeves made out of recycled materials, and I’m a fan of the striking cobalt blue number.
- DODOcase Essentials, $70
For someone who yearns for the feel of reading a book while using an iPad, DODOcase iPad case provides a happy solution. Handcrafted in San Francisco, the sturdy case is made through an old-fashioned bookbinding process. I love the pop of cheerful color, as well as the eco-friendly bamboo.
- robinson FLIP E-TABLET SLEEVE, $225
An iPad case in Hermes orange? Yes, please. Tory Burch’s iPad case oozes elegance with its rich color (equestrian orange) complemented by the simple gold Tory Burch emblem.
How do you protect your tablet or smartphone?
Now that you have your iPad safely stored away, make sure to grab some colorful beach towels before your next seaside jaunt!
