Beach bag must-haves

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -  Before you hit the beach this summer, make sure your beach bag is well-stocked. Lifestyle expert Val Lodato showed us some must-have gear to tote to the shore.

First- What to wear? We picked Barbara Gerwit's Tunics. These colorful, soft, comfortable and figure-flattering tunics come in fun prints with great embellishments.

This line also carries matching beach bags. The fashion-forward totes are large enough to hold your purse, a beach ball, towel, sunscreen, and shoes. They also come in colorful prints.

If you're too modest for a bikini or tankini, or you simply want more coverage on the beach, check out Commando. The original raw-cut invisible underwear brand now has a fantastic reversible swim wear collection. Commando's sexy surfer swim shirt is an updated take on the rash guard category. It has a figure-flattering silhouette and UPF50+ sun protection. There's a wide range of solids and fantastic prints.

Now to make sure the contents of your beach bag are in good shape. A great place to store your beach essentials is inside one of those insulated food bags. PackIt has bags that are freezable and keep contents cold for up to 10 hours. The sandwich bag is great for sunscreen, makeup, and, of course, food to snack on at the beach!

Speaking of sunscreen: Sparkle Screen is a really cool innovation for girls and women. It's a sweet, fruity-scented, natural sunscreen that's loaded with antioxidants, and a non-metallic, cosmetic-grade glitter. It packs an SPF 30 and comes in Strawberry or Kiwi Pear.

Tangle Teezer is the perfect on-the-go brush! It's ideal for wet hair, as it doesn't tug, pull or tangle.

Staying glam at the beach is a cinch with Benefit cosmetics waterproof eye makeup! The line includes waterproof eyeliners and BADgal waterproof mascara. This eye makeup won't smudge or budge and usually lasts up to 24 hours.

Finally, the key to feeling and smelling fresh is a purse-sized perfume spray! Calypso purse sprays are light, yet purposeful with sweet summery scents, including: Mimosa, Figue and Casablanca.
