The fourth of July means that we get two of our favorite summer activities packed into one day: 1. gorgeous fireworks and 2. endless BBQ. But as much as we would love to dive straight into the deliciousness of it all, we’ve got to be prepared for everything from stains to sunburns. To gear up for Independence Day festivities, we’ll be grabbing these products so our totes are prepped:
1. Supergoop!® Antioxidant-infused Sunscreen Mist with Vitamin C: We couldn’t leave home without the SPF—especially since we’ve had our fair share of painful sunburns. To keep application extra easy, we’re opting for this lightly-scented sunscreen mist.
2. twistband Birchbox Nautical Hair Tie Collection: Before our hands get sticky, we’re getting our strands out of our faces (and, err, the barbecue sauce) with these cute perfect-for-the-season hair ties.
3. Herban Essentials Towelettes: It goes without saying that hands are the main utensils at most summer picnics. We’re sanitizing pre and post-meal with these all-natural towelettes. Not only do they smell great, but they’re also perfect for wiping away that summer sweat.
4. The Laundress® Stain Solution: No more worrying about white shorts and mustard stains. We’re pouring some of this biodegradable stain solution into a spray bottle for super spot cleaning on-the-go (the sooner it gets on the offending mark, the better a chance you have of getting it out!). Plus, the plant-based formula is non-toxic and allergen-free so you won’t have to worry about using it near your grub.
