It's hot and sticky and there's only one thing on our minds when in Bondi; the beach. We're keeping it cool and considered with our Bondi Essentials edit, shot on location at the newly opened QT Bondi.

1. Mecca Cosmetica - To Soothe Body After Sun Lotion
This lotion is essentially aloe vera on crack. It smells like the stuff goddesses are made of and cures pinchy skin after a day in the sun. Are you a darker shade of lobster? No problem - apply liberally and it will soothe your skin like trickling rainwater.
$36 AUD -  [SHOP HERE]

2. Waterlove Swimwear - Waterlust Slide Tri Bikini
Supporting ethical and sustainable manufacturing whilst also contributing to conservation projects for the ocean, Waterlove Swimwear is a no-fusslabel for those looking for a staple bikini. Tops and bottoms can be ordered in different sizes and come in smoking hot colours.

3. Mecca Cosmetica - To Save Face Superscreen SPF 50+
The first sunscreen for the face we've found that truly has no icky residue. A must if you're concerned about sun damage. Slides on under make-up for a fresh look. We're in love.

4. STATE OF ESCAPE - Escape Bag
The 'IT' bag for considered beach goers. Made in Australia from Neoprene and rope, the Escape bag has a timeless design that is travel friendly. It packs up flat in your luggage and has a neat inner purse to keep your phone and lip balm sand-free. They're also available in a great range of sport-luxe shades.
