Is there such a thing as too many pouches when you travel? Never. This stripey collection feels like the perfect addition to my summer travel arsenal for long weekends at the beach and last-minute getaways. ($38) – Berit, senior editor

My favorite new addition to my handbag is this sturdy and beautiful glasses case that I picked up for £5 when I was last in London. So cheap! I bought two: the iris floral above and another with . - Pavia, CEO

My favorite beauty shop has launched their own line of clean products, including a decadent sugar scrub, silky oil spray, and hand-poured candle. The lip balm (a personal favorite) is both nourishing and light. Made with argan oil, shea butter, vitamin E, and chamomile flower oil, the compact size and attractive case have made it an instant addition to my carry-on bag. (From $7) – Berit

This eco-friendly brand just made my spring cleaning/summer shopping easy. Fair Harbor makes chic, durable swimsuits made from recycled plastic bottles. But they don't stop there. The company ,also offers a program called the where they will send you a prepaid shipping label to send them your old, sand-filled swimsuits to be recycled and given a new life. (Bonus: If you sign up for the program, you’ll receive a 10 percent discount code for each swimsuit you send, up to 30 percent off.) ($98)— California, editorial intern

I’ve been test-driving this Merino wool T-shirt, which claims it can be worn for weeks without a wash. I haven’t gotten to that point, and I’m not sure if I ever will, but from wearing it on multiple days between washes in the hectic (and often uncomfortable) environment that is NYC, I’m impressed with its resilience. It’s odor-resistant, temperature-regulating, fast-drying, and wrinkle-free — all of which help with the sweat I work up while commuting and traveling. And it’s stylish — the fit is comfortable and the material feels lush. The website advertises it as a solution for over-packers (who needs five shirts weighing down your suitcase when you can have one?), and while I certainly wouldn’t forgo more stylish pieces, I would certainly feel good packing it as my only T-shirt on a short trip.

The other day I met the founder of Golde, the company known for their nutritious , who shared the story behind her new product, an anti-pollution face mask made with superfoods like spirulina, chlorella, and mango. It comes in a powder that, when mixed with a little water, forms a nice and tightening gel. I tried it, and it's now going into the regular product mix. ($34) – Pavia


My favorite brand of sunscreen just came out with a genius summer beauty product: the first eyeshadow with SPF 30. While this is probably the last place I'd think to put sunscreen, the area around the eyes is the most sensitive skin on the body and thus the most impacted by harmful UV rays. The eyeshadows come in four summery shades, and I will definitely be adding them to my makeup bag for no-brainer beachy makeup. ($24) — California

Know what would go really well with that super-cheap sunglasses case I listed above? This really expensive — and really beautiful — silk blend caftan inspired by Carmen Miranda and made by Brazilian swimwear designer PatBO for their Resort 2019 collection. ($650) — Pavia
