Skin care and makeup must-haves for a summer resort

My trip to Hawaii was fantastic!  Since Japan is pretty cold right now, I had to make a huge adjustment to my skin care and makeup when I got to Hawaii.  This is a round up of some products which are essential to me when I travel to a summer resort.
I did a summer must-haves post a few years ago. My summer resort must-haves are a little different, since it assumes that I don’t need to look “work appropriate”.  These are not the only products I brought with me on vacation. These are the products that I brought specifically because of the weather.
Makeup
BB cream or tinted moisturizer
I like a little coverage even when I’m on vacation, and I also like to look effortless. A BB cream or tinted moisturizer is the right product for me.  Right now, I like the Martha Tilaar Caring Colours BB cream, a local Indonesian product I picked up while I lived in Jakarta.
 
Eyeshadow that I can swipe on with my finger
I picked the L’Oreal Infallible eyeshadows in Forever Pink and Sahara Treasure, and the Maybelline 24 hour Color Tattoo in Barely Branded. I don’t need a brush to apply these, and they look great just by themselves.
Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Creme Brulee
These were super popular in the beauty blogger world a while ago, and I picked one up in Hawaii. This is another easy product which gives a little bit of color to my lips. I’m looking for a pink-peach one to pick up next – any suggestions?

Skin Care

Broad spectrum spray sunscreen
This time, I bought Neutrogena Wet Skin SPF 85+ because I wanted a sunscreen that I could apply even if I was sweating or wet from the ocean.  It is a little bit hard for me to find spray sunscreens in Japan!
As I mentioned several times before, I apply sunscreen quite rigorously because I don’t want to tan, but unfortunately I did while I was in Hawaii.
A light eye cream
I like to bring a light eye cream to help recover from sun damage.  This is the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair eye cream. It is a light gel which absorbs easily into my skin.
Hair products
Dry shampoo
This is the L’Oreal EverStyle Energizing dry shampoo. I like to use dry shampoo to give my hair some volume at the roots. Dry shampoos are hard to find in Japan.
Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray
When I’m in a summer resort, I like to go for a beachy wavy look. I apply dry shampoo to my roots and this surf spray to the ends of my hair.  This gives me the summer-y look that I want.
I really had a great time in Hawaii, and I am preparing blog posts sharing some of the places I went.  I hope that I can go back to Hawaii soon!
What do you bring when you go to a summer resort?
