The Kind Of Beach Bag Spills You Need This Season | Clozette

The summer season is synonymous with beach outings. The call of the waves and warm sand just seem to be louder when the weather is hot. And just like any other vacation, you need to be armed and ready for your beach trip. We’ve got just what you need. Ahead, the kind of beach bag spill you need according to your personality. 

The Style Conscious

You’re the type to always have your whole look on point and ready for a snapshot. Of course, you need your camera handy for taking those shots. But you also need a CC cushion (with SPF!) to make sure your face base is perfect for that photo op.

And because you’re detail-oriented, you never forget even those that seem like little things — like your hair! You need something that’s quick and easy but very effective. So make sure you have the Pantene Summer Limited Edition Shampoo and 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner in your bag for a quick primping. The shampoo and conditioner are formulated with cationic polymer, 80% more key conditioning ingredient and Pantene Pro-V complex that repair hair damage and make hair healthier, stronger and shinier in just three minutes. Plus, isn’t the limited edition packaging just so chic?

The Sporty Spice

You lead an active lifestyle and your mind is always set on “go.” So get your action camera ready for jetpacking, skimboarding or any other fun thing you’ll be doing under the sun. Make sure you’re protected from the harsh UV rays, of course, by conveniently spraying on a sunscreen.

Since you’ll be moving a lot and the weather is hot, your hair is prone to dandruff and greasiness. Keep your hair and scalp fresh and clean with Head & Shoulders Limited Edition Anti-Dandruff Shampoos in Cool Menthol (for men) and Lemon Fresh (for women). The shampoos make sure your hair and scalp are grease- and dandruff-free and protect your hair from the sun. The refreshing cooling sensation of the menthol variant and the invigorating scent of the lemon fresh variant are great for staying cool in the heat.

The Luxuriator

You’re all about the luxe life, even at the beach. You see the time off in nature as a way to indulge, rejuvenate and get ready for your busy life in the city. So go ahead and take the opportunity to relax on your own terms. Bring your favourite snack to nourish your body. Do a quick spritz of a facial mist for a quick pick-me-up.

Also, make sure your hair is detoxed and refreshed with the Herbal Essences Bio:Renew Volume White Grapefruit & Mosa Mint Shampoo and Conditioner. The products have 0% parabens, glutens, colourants and silicones, which is great for taking care of the hair. Plus, it has an invigorating citrusy scent that’s perfect for waking up the senses and revitalising the spirit.

The Beach Bum

Your definition of the beach is “home.” If there’s one place in the world you’re most at peace and comfortable in it’s by the water. All you need on top of that is a good book to indulge and get yourself lost in for hours, sunscreen to keep your skin protected from the sun’s damaging rays, and the Rejoice Perfume Fresh Shampoo and Conditioner for hair that has a scent you’ll remember good beach days by. Aside from having an exquisite new summer scent crafted in collaboration with an international perfume expert, the products hydrate and soothe the hair.

Stand a chance to win a beach bag power-packed with hair care essentials from Pantene, Head & Shoulders, Herbal Essences and Rejoice worth approx. SGD100! We're giving away two sets. Head to our Facebook or Instagram for details!

If you're part of the working girls club, you know that it's always a challenge to maintain that professional, polished look when you're trying to finish tons of tasks. At times, you only have a few moments in between meetings to touch-up your makeup and style. The best thing to do is to arm yourself with some time-saving beauty pieces in your arsenal! Check out this month's upcoming beauty launches that can help you look and stay polished throughout your busy day.

Benefit Cosmetics Hello Happy Soft Blur foundation


A matte, full coverage foundation may be long-lasting but it's a bit heavy and occluding for everyday use. For usual days at the office, it's best to opt for a lightweight foundation that still offers a decent coverage. In this arena, we find Benefit Cosmetics' Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation to be very promising. The formula is said to offer weightless coverage that evens skin tone and blurs imperfections. This "feel good" foundation will be released by June 21, so keep a lookout for it!

Men in makeup

There's no denying that the recent years have paved the way for more men in makeup to be given the spotlight.

MAC Cosmetics, meanwhile, said that 7% of their customers are male. It's about time brands re-think their marketing strategies and start including men in their priorities of people to reach.
