Let’s take a moment to break down the best and worst of the summer season. The pros: We love the constant excuse to relax and unwind under the sweet summer sun, take trips to the beach, lounge by the pool and wear flirty sundresses and sandals. And the cons? Well, unfortunately, summer brings with it a host of beauty woes—everything from increased sweat to sun-damaged hair to parched skin. To help you keep these less-than-ideal factors at bay, we’ve rounded up our top six drugstore beauty buys for summer. Add this collection to your daily beauty routine, and your body will be prepared to handle everything that the heat throws at it! Click through the slideshow below to get the scoop and see how our team is making the most of each product.
To continue celebrating all things summer, we’re also giving away a tote bag filled with our favorite beauty products from Procter & Gamble (plus a few other goodies to get you through the season)! In the tote bag, you’ll find Olay Fresh Outlast Body Wash, Olay Regenerist Luminous Overnight Gel Moisturizer Mask, Herbal Essences Wild Naturals Rejuvenating Shampoo and Conditioner, Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant, a portable radio and speaker, striped beach towel and straw hat. To enter, leave a comment below telling us how you’d use one of these products in your beauty regimen this summer. Check back here on this post on July 6 to see who the winner is. Open to U.S. residents only. Winner will be selected at random on July 6, 2015 on this post.

Olay Fresh Outlast Body Wash ($23 for a pack of 2)
“I can’t stand the idea of lathering up with body washes that are high in sulfates and other harsh chemicals, so I was really excited to give the Olay Fresh Outlast Body Wash a try! It contains ten times more moisturizers than other soaps I’ve used; plus, I love the sweet scent. It’s especially great for hydrating your skin post-sun.” – Taylor
