1. Welly Adventure Large First Aid Kit (FSA/HSA Eligible)

The welly first aid kit is super cute and super practical. You never know what you will encounter on vacation and having bandages and anything else you need handy is a wonderful idea. Be ready for anything and make sure you still have a good time. 

Review:“This is such a cute and compact first aid kit. There are a TON of bandaids inside. The styles are great, something for even the pickiest kids (like mine) haha. Great quality bandaids, they stay on great, they are flexible and just so darn cute. Lots of other great things to have when you are traveling like ibuprofen, ointment, alcohol and cleansing wipes.”- Amazon Customer


2. Bug Bite Thing Suction Tool, Poison Remover (FSA/HSA Eligible)

Going warmer places for vacation means more bugs. This bug bite remover is a great thing to have. You just place it on the bite and suction the irritant out. It works with almost all bug bites and is amazing to have on hand. 

Review: “I am a magnet for bites of all kinds and carry topical and medicines with me at all times – so I figured this would be a good product to see if it really works. It arrived Monday and Tuesday morning I woke up with a bug bite on my arm… I used this little tool (3 x per the instructions) and documented with photos. Immediately after using, it stopped itching! And less than 24 hours later the bump / bite gone! There is a very faint red mark from using the thing but a small price to pay IMO. Bottom line: it’s awesome. I’m carrying it with me everywhere!” – Rebecca

3. Pedialyte Advancedcare Electrolyte Solution (FSA/HSA Eligible)

The worst thing is being dehydrated on vacation. This electrolyte solution is an advanced hydration rehydration drink specially formulated with the optimal balance of sugar and electrolytes to help prevent dehydration in both kids and adults. Also, the strawberry lemonade flavor is amazing and it will help you feel your best in no time. 

Review: “This is the best product on the market for hydration, PERIOD! Excellent flavor and works quickly if you have dehydration issues.Great value for your money.” -Amazon Customer

4. Banana Boat Sport Ultra, Reef Friendly, Broad Spectrum Sunscreen Spray, Spf 30, 6Oz. - Twin Pack (FSA/HSA Eligible)

This twin pack of spray sunscreen is a must on vacation. Getting burnt is a vacation ruiner, so avoid it altogether with this. This sunscreen Spray stays on in the sun, pool water, ocean water, wind, sweat, sand, and extreme heat. 

Review: “Product is so good. Daughter is able to use it easily and on her back. Smells nice and good overall cover. No grease or slime marks afterwards. Best of all no residue leftover to spoil clothes and stain.” – Amazon Customer

5. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Water Resistant And Non-Greasy Sunscreen Lotion With Broad Spectrum Spf 100+ (FSA/HSA Eligible)

Another great sunscreen option is this Neutrogena sunscreen that is 100 SPF. This has powerful protection without the greasy and heavy finish. It is amazing because it absorbs quickly and is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes. 

Review From Amazon: “I purchased this product for my husband after doing research to find dermatologist recommended sunscreen for those with pre cancerous skin on the face. He is outside most of the time and has a hard time finding a sunscreen that will protect his skin, stay on his skin, not drip off with sweat, not irritate skin, and not leave a white film on the skin. This sunscreen is the answer for all those issues. It is lightweight, stays on with sweat, no need to reapply often, not irrigating to the skin, no white film left behind, and protects really well. Thank goodness, our sunscreen search is over!”-Amazon Customer
