As you gear up for the sunny season, it’s important to have the right essentials to keep you protected, comfortable, and prepared for anything that comes your way. The best part? Many of these must-haves are FSA-eligible, allowing you to maximize your healthcare funds. In this blog post, we’ll explore a selection of FSA-eligible products that are perfect for summer. From first aid kits to sunscreen, eye drops, bug bite relief, and hot/cold packs, these items will help you make the most of your summer while staying safe and healthy.

1. Small Compact Mini First Aid Kit (FSA/HSA Eligible)

Accidents can happen anytime, anywhere, but with a small compact mini first aid kit in your bag, you’ll be prepared. This FSA-eligible kit contains essential supplies like band-aids, antiseptic wipes, tweezers, and more. Its portable design makes it suitable for diaper bags, purses, cars, and travel. Be ready for minor cuts, scrapes, and bumps, ensuring that your summer adventures continue uninterrupted.

Review: Great all in 1 kit to keep in a diaper bag or purse. It has everything you might need for scrapes and cuts. The pockets are small so they only hold a few items each and can be difficult to get things out of for some people. – Amazon Customer


2. Supergoop! Play Everyday SPF 30 Lotion (FSA/HSA Eligible)

Protecting your skin from harmful UV rays is a top priority during summer. Supergoop! Play Everyday SPF 30 Lotion is an FSA-eligible, reef-safe, broad-spectrum sunscreen that’s perfect for sensitive skin. This water and sweat-resistant sunscreen provides reliable sun protection for both your face and body. Apply generously before heading out and reapply regularly to keep your skin shielded from the sun’s rays, reducing the risk of sunburn and long-term skin damage.

Review: y husband recommended this and I was very skeptical- especially when I saw the price. It is amazing! It is soft, light, smooth! I never worry putting it on my family ages 2-40, always feel protected. I will never buy another sunscreen again. Excited to try the other products in this brand in the future. Amazon Customer

3. Refresh Plus Lubricant Eye Drops (FSA/HSA Eligible)

Summer activities and exposure to sun, wind, and chlorinated water can leave your eyes feeling dry and irritated. Combat dryness with Refresh Plus Lubricant Eye Drops, available in preservative-free, single-use containers. These FSA-eligible eye drops provide instant relief and much-needed moisture for dry eyes, ensuring your vision stays clear and comfortable all summer long. 

Review: I had been using other drops due to the very dry climate where I live and they did not offer the relief that these drops do. The individual packs minimize the chance of bacteria in the drops as they are a one time use. My eyes feel better with these.Amazon Customer

4. Nature's Willow Bug Bite Balm Itch Relief Cream (FSA/HSA Eligible)

Pesky bug bites can put a damper on your summer adventures. Soothe the itch and irritation with Nature’s Willow Bug Bite Balm Itch Relief Cream. Formulated with menthol, this FSA-eligible cream provides fast and effective relief for bug bites. Keep it handy in your bag or at home to alleviate discomfort caused by mosquitoes, bees, or other insect bites, allowing you to fully enjoy the great outdoors. 

Review: e and mosquito bites do not get along. A couple good scratches in and the bites turn into a hot mess. This product keeps me from scratching and alleviates the pain. I recommend if you’re sensitive to bites, and are going somewhere where you can’t help to get bit up!!!Amazon Customer

5. Old Bones Therapy Hot/Cold Gel Pack Bundle (FSA/HSA Eligible)

Summer activities can sometimes lead to muscle aches, strains, or even minor injuries. Be prepared with the Old Bones Therapy Hot/Cold Gel Pack Bundle. This FSA-eligible bundle includes two reusable gel packs in different sizes, perfect for targeting pain in your knees, shoulders, back, neck, and more. Use the gel packs cold to reduce inflammation or apply heat to relax sore muscles, providing quick relief wherever you are. 

Review: reat design and well made. Feeling relief from a situation with two herniated discs. Big help supporting my weakened lower back stability and hot and cold packs are fantastic. Can’t say enough good things about this product. I recommend always start and finish with a cold sequence per instructions on the packs. Heat feels good but if used at all should be in between icings in my opinion to do the best job of reducing inflammation. Excellent product!
