Teva sandals

"I use No7 Stay Perfect now after switching from Clinique." leccybill

13 July: Travel special 

Speedo Sculpt Watergem swimsuit

 

Price: from £15, John Lewis

Mumsnetters say: "I've just bought the Speedo Sculpt Watergem. It has nice big, adjustable straps, but looks really stylish. It gives you a nice shape even if you are trying to hide a few pounds." Only1scoop


"I second the Speedo Sculpt Watergem." StarSpotter

"I usually wear Speedo swimsuits for lap swimming. I'm not particularly huge of nork but find them supportive enough." leedy

St. Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower lotion

 

Price: £14.50, feelunique

Mumsnetters say: "I found it really easy to use. OK, the standing there for three mins wasn't great, but I used the time to tidy the bathroom and comb conditioner through my hair." SorrelForbes


"I like it. It builds up gradually and I've never had streaks - unlike with other brands." CharlieSierra

"Pale-skinned strawberry blonde here. St. Tropez Gradual Tan is the only thing that doesn't look orange on me." Lambzig

Dulux paint in Timeless
