Everyone loves the salty surf effect the ocean leaves on your hair and skin after a fun day in the sun, but sometimes you have to shower that off. Luckily Masion Martin Margiela has you covered with their 'Beach Walk' scent that combines bergamot, coconut milk, lemon, pink pepper, and musk notes.

This tiny, twist-up sun block is still one of our favorites on the market. Not only will its compact size fit in any beach bag, but it's oil-free so it won't clog your pores and the stick formula doesn't give you that streaky white mess situation.
