With summer winding down and the long Labor Day weekend approaching, we’re planning on soaking up that summer sun and heading to the beach before the season ends. To prepare, we turned to one of our favorite celebrity moms and co-founder of The Honest Company, Jessica Alba, for what she packs in her beach bag. Read along for more from this mom mogul!
Guest Editor: Jessica Alba, Co-Founder of The Honest Company.
Bug Spray: I love our bug spray because it safely repels using organic essential oils (and made without DEET)! It smells so good and is super easy to use – a warm weather must.
Sunscreen: Gentle and effective. Done and done. My beach bag is already stuffed enough, so I go for products that the whole family can use. I’ll give my girls a snack or popsicle while I slather them with sunscreen and reapply throughout the day.
Lip Balm: Our organic lip balm is everything! They are perfect for everyday use, but especially great for summer when my lips get extra chapped. It utilizes Shea butter and aloe leaf extract and comes in three yummy flavors.
Hand Sanitizer Spray: My kids love this stuff – it’s so easy to use and smells great. The quick-drying formula helps kill germs and bacteria and the bottle is perfectly purse-sized.
Wipes : I call these “cheek to cheek” wipes because they work just as well on your own face as they do your baby’s bottom. They wipe down sticky fingers, clean up spills, easily remove makeup, and are great for keeping sandy feet out of the car! My beach tip: stick a travel pack in the ice chest for a quick and easy cooldown.

For expecting and new moms, getting a good night’s sleep can be a challenge. Chances are your jammies will need a refresh so that you can keep as comfortable as possible all night long.
