Summer is upon us and it’s time to head to the beach. But before you do, let’s make your life easier.

“Product Of The Year” is the world’s largest consumer-voted award for product innovation, and it’s backed by votes from over 40,000 consumers. Michele Bellisari, the founder of #SoooBoca Lifestyle, is here to give you some of the best of those products for your beach bag.

"We love going to the beach this year, we've been here forever and now we have some great projects to share with you," said Bellisari.

First up - sunscreen.

"This product is called Honu, and it's SPF 50. It was inspired by the Honu sea turtle from Hawaii. What's really cool about this product is that it has a little arm on it. The message behind it is to 'protect our shells' like the turtles. So, it gets hard to reach spots like your back, shoulders or neck," said Bellisari.

Of course, you're going to want to stay hydrated.

"The #SoooBoca gals love anything that's low in calories and this drink is 100 calories per can. They have three different flavors - their dry one, their rosé one, and their pear flavored on," said Bellisari.

If you're spending the day at the beach, you're going to be hungry. Here are some snacks that run from healthy to sinfully delicious.

"These are the Oreo thin bites. Listen, who doesn't want a cookie sometime when you're at the beach? What's nice about the White Cheddar Popcorn is that they're gluten free, they're healthy, they're crunchy and a great addition to any snack bag that you're going to take to the beach," said Bellisari.

And last, but not least, something new from tic tac.

"So now you've had all of this, and you're ready for some tic tac gum. They've got cool watermelon, cool tropical, fresh mint and spearmint," said Bellisari.
