Top Five: Summer Essentials

Summer Essential Products Top Offers
Batiste Dry Shampoo As the weather warms up, things can start to get a little sticky, and it's easy for hair to become limp and  lank. I find Batiste the perfect way to give my hair a new lease of life, freshening up my roots and adding a touch of volume. The tropical version has a Coconut & Exotic scent which is perfect for summer-time and smells just like holidays!
Mitchum Anti-Perspirant Deodorant Every woman needs a deodorant she can depend on, and this is mine; I know it won't let me down and I can wear what I like without fear of the dreaded sweat patches ruining my favourite top or dress!
Cutex Nail Polish Remover In the summer months, I like to keep my toenails (and fingernails) in tip-top shape as you never know when they'll be on show! This means re-painting them every week, for which a good nail polish remover is a must. I don't tend to stick to one brand, simply choosing from what's available at the time.
Garnier Ambre Solaire Sun Cream I burn really easily, so suncream is a must-have for me. I've used Garnier's Ambre Solaire since I was a child, so the smell really reminds me of summer picnics and playing in rivers, and as an added bonus I'm not allergic to it! Especially with children in the house, it's a good idea to have plenty of suncare on hand.
Impulse Body Spray Even with the best deodorant in the world, it's always best to be safe in my opinion - you never know when there's going to be a competitive game of frisbee or an impromptu trip to the swimming pool, so a quick spritz of body spray is perfect to cover up any less-than-desirable odours and keep you smelling sweet.

Recently, I was contacted* by the lovely people at mySupermarket, a fantastic free website that makes it really easy to compare prices on loads of health and beauty products. They have a range of helpful features, including Swap and Save, which suggests similar products at better prices, and Savvy Buys, products which are currently better than 30% less than their average price over the last year. You can also set up Price Alerts so that you receive an email notification when selected products are on offer - really handy if, like me, you like to stock up while things are cheap! As well as helping you track down health and beauty top offers, mySupermarket also offer exclusive cashback on selected items, meaning you get paid for using their money-saving service - that sounds like a win/win to me!
