Must-haves…

  • Mineral Sunscreen -Lavera Sun Block SPF 40 Neutral Sunscreen (thick, mineral sun protection, whitening, but actually waterproof- perfect for hiking, snorkeling, and even beach-sitting!)
  • Insect Repellent – Skin So Soft BUG GUARD Plus Picaridin Insect Repellent Towelettes (easy to apply in the right amount and smells pretty good)
  • Natural Deodorant – Tom’s of Maine Natural Long-lasting Care Deodorant in Apricot (great, but perhaps not enough for a day-long trek through a swamp apparently)
  • Hair Conditioner sample packets – DHC has some generous hair care samples (4 Free DHC Samples with Every Order.)
  • A basic razor – I brought a disposable razor (shame on me), but non-disposable works too
  • A wide brim fold-able sun hat – found one at Nordstrom on sale (so useful in hot sun!)
  • Large sunglasses (really helps keep the delicate eye area protected from sun)
