Vacation Essentials

Sandy beaches. Sun-kissed glow. Fresh coconut drinks. You guessed it, the holiday season is finally here! 2017 is closely coming to an end and you’re probably wondering which beauty essentials to pack for your holiday beach vacay. Here are Baniku’s’ hottest trending beauty must-haves in your suitcase.


  • Waterproof eye makeup

If you will be wearing any form of eye makeup such as eyeliner and mascara, having waterproof makeup will secure your look and avoid the makeup from floating away in the ocean, leaving a cry-face running mascara – don’t do that to yourselves ladies!


  • Face Illuminator

We all crave and live for the goddess sun-kissed glow that can be achieved and heightened by face illuminators / highlighters. The tropical heat and humidity at the beach makes liquid face illuminators the best fit in securing your desired glow. Some illuminators in the market are Cover FX Custom Enhancer drops available @ideal_accessories_Kenya Instagram page, NYX Born-to-glow liquid illuminator and Maybelline’s Master Strobing liquid illuminating highlighter.

  • Powder Foundation

Ever since its invention, the powder foundation has been a life-saver for beach-goers.  Powder foundation is basically a foundation that comes in powder form.

This must-have product provides a lightweight feel on the skin as well as keeping the oily-shine at bay. Grab a Black Opal Loose Powder, Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder or Flori Roberts Cosmetics Crème-to-powder Foundation to achieve a shine-free look.

2. Face/SkinCare

  • Cleansing Product of your choice

Whether it’s cleansing towelettes / wipes, a face wash, or micellar water – your everyday cleanser of choice should be added to your travel bag as a definite beauty essential, and here’s why. Just because you’re traveling doesn’t mean that you should neglect your skincare regimen. In fact you should be more diligent in taking care of your skin. Cleansing removes the gunk and oil from your skin after a long day on the beach to reveal a clean, fresh face.

  • Sunglasses

Shield your eyes from the sun’s rays while adding a fashionable chic staple to your travel must-haves. Sunglasses come in different sizes, frames and colors. Knowing your ideal sunglasses frame type is key to successfully accentuating your facial features.

3. Body-Care

  • Broad Spectrum SPF

You cannot go to the beach without applying sunscreen. Sun Protected Factor or SPF is basically the measure of how well your sunscreen can protect you from UVB rays hence the different SPF levels such as SPF 15, SPF30 & SPF 50. Some of the sunscreens available in the market include Nivea Sunscreen SPF 30, Yves Rocher Sunscreen SPF 30 & SPF50, La Roche-Posay Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid and many others.
