Your Beach Holiday Essentials

Finally, the summer season is upon us. Whilst sitting on a roof terrace with a cocktail in hand is delightful, nothing quite compares to getting lost in the calm of a sea breeze. Whether you opt to stay in the UK or travel further afield (maybe you’re in need of some long-haul travel essentials!) this season was designed for a beach getaway.


The reality of this does somewhat require some preparation, especially when it comes to your beauty routine. The humidity, exposure to UV rays and longer days mean you need foolproof essentials you can trust. That’s where we come in. Tried and tested by Sophia herself, it’s time to discover Code8’s Beach Holiday Essentials.

The mantra ‘less is more’ has never been more relevant. With the sun shining, you are sure to have some added natural colour (even if a little on the rouge side) and golden hour will have us all looking like a bronze goddess. Our essentials are the key to enhancing the natural effects of these warmer days, keeping your look effortlessly you.


Radiate Beauty Balm with SPF 15. The perfect base product for these warmer days. Wear as a skin enhancer and protector thanks to a formula that boasts SPF 15 and Argan Seed Oil. Massage one to two pumps into your skin to instantly boost your natural glow.

Bronzer Summer Glow Powder. Apply a dusting of bronzer across your cheekbones, forehead, temples, chin and the tip of your nose to enhance your natural tan, ready to really capitalise on those Golden Hour moments that when at the beach, are on a-whole-nother level.

5Secs Express Lip & Cheek Tint. Combining the hydrating and reparative benefits of a lip balm with the colour effect of a sheer lipstick, this is the perfect beach getaway essential. Apply to the lips, cheeks and eyes for a subtle colour pop.

The formula contains film-forming agents known to provide a persistent, long-wearing quality, perfect for a day of relaxing on the shore. Vitamins E and A also defend against UV damage, paramount when exposing yourself to the sun for prolonged periods of time.

Why settle for travel minis when all our products are under 100ml? Sophia intentionally designed all the vessels to be compact, perfect for those on-the-go, or in this case, seeking some escapism.
