GN-Shield UV Expert, SPF 50, €37, Lancôme, available in selected department stores nationwide
I am fanatical about being 'SunSmart' and wearing sunscreen all year round. It is vital to protect our skin and prevent premature ageing. I love this because it is a non greasy moisturiser and my make-up glides on over it. The size is perfect too for carrying in my handbag.
1 hour tan, €7.99, Cocoa Brown, available in selected grocery stores and pharmacies nationwide
It is so easy to use. It is a coloured mousse so it goes on very easily with a tanning mitt, avoiding any tell-tale streaks. It also smells delicious, leaves a natural glow and wears off evenly. I have very fair skin, so use this on my arms all the time and on my legs in the summer.
Essential Extracts, Coconut Milk Hand and Body Lotion, €1.25 (300ml), Marks & Spencer, available in selected M&S stores nationwide
Coconut is one of my favourite fragrances, so I am instantly uplifted after I use this product. Even after swimming this seemingly light lotion is effective at rehydrating my skin. Best of all, it soaks in extremely quickly and is terrific value for money.
