30 Personal Care Products That Just Make Sense To Have On Hand In Summer

TikTok is obsessed with this minimalist time-marked water bottle for a reason, y'all.

1. A set of reusable silicone Nippies , a cult-fave nipple cover that reviewers love for its seamless fit and the way it stays put even on the sweatiest of human days without budging. Fun tops and dresses with funky straps have officially entered the group chat!!

Promising review: "If deciding between the lightest and the medium color, go with the lightest. If you're deciding between the lightest color and olive, get the lightest one. I'm East Asian with light skin but dark nipples. I saw a review that said to go with the darker shade to match your nipple shade. My nipples are darker than olive, but my skin is light and I didn't want to wear something too in contrast with my skin.I got the olive (medium) color and wore it for 5 months. What I found inconvenient with the olive (medium) shade is that for any kind of thin white t-shirt, they show through the shirt as visible circles, and it was an inconvenience always having to wear a tank top underneath light tops. It sort of betrays the purpose of going bra- free, if you have to wrap yourself in layers instead (and layering in summer is torture).I saw that reviews with the lightest color Nippies had no issues like this. So after my first pair wore out, I ordered my second pair in the lightest color. And sure enough, the Nippies did not show through white shirts anymore. The layer of Nippies combined with the shirt surprisingly prevents your dark nipples from showing through the t-shirt.TLDR: if you have light skin & dark nipples, and are a white shirt enthusiast, buy the lightest Nippies. Your nippies & headlights won't show through your shirts." — Audrey Kim

2. A set of cooling patches to soothe a MYRIAD of summer woes, including and not limited to sunburns, itchiness from bugs and poison ivy, and even dehydration headaches.

Promising review: "Just buy them! Just buy these to have on hand! Trust me, as a Mother of 4, you’re going to want them! My 3yo daughter is still cutting her molars so she will randomly have days where she is super hot and feverish and I pop one of these on her forehead and she loves it! She’s slept all the way through the night with it on, which is amazing given the fact that my kids usually won’t ever keep an ice pack on their skin for more than the 15 seconds I try to hold it down on them before they can escape! Ha!I also used these on my 9mo old after he took a big topple. He somehow didn’t grab it off! If I kept him distracted he forgot about it.I’ve even used these on myself when I got a burn on my arm! It worked wonders. The burn hurt when I took it off but didn’t hardly when it was on. I purchased another more expensive brand with Mickey on them and this is comparable but a lower price so I’ll just be buying these from now on. LOVE!!" — Rachel & Austin Holt

3. A set of Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier packets , an electrolyte drink mix infused with potassium and vitamin C you can stir into your water to help speed up hydration and help restore energy levels when you're dehydrated from exercise or spending too much time in the sun. (Or, if we're all being real honest with ourselves, chugging enough coffee to make the Starbucks mermaid weep.)

Promising review: "I suffer from extreme dehydration - extreme to the point where I am hospitalized and can easily finish off 2 bags of IV fluids in a ... Sold for life on this product. I suffer from extreme dehydration - extreme to the point where I am hospitalized and can easily finish off 2 bags of IV fluids in a matter of an hour. Even though I drink plenty of fluids throughout the day - for some reason by body apparently has trouble absorbing that it needs to STAY hydrated. After my 6th hospital stay for dehydration within 3 months, I said there has to be SOMETHING that can HELP. I researched, researched, studied and researched more. LiquidIV and a few others were purchased in order to test and see what fit the bill. LiquidIV is by far the best. Since taking this steadily for 5 months, no more hospital stays for dehydration and let alone can exercise and play softball without suffering with cramps or the shakes. The taste is fantastic, which is a subtle lemon/lime flavor and isn't "oily" as some of the other products that are similar (the ones where you drop them into the water to mix). So good, that I have made nearly all my friends, coworkers and others firm believers of this product.Definitely worth the purchase - you will not be disappointed." — Juan

Revlon oil-absorbing volcanic face rollerReviewer using Revlon oil-absorbing volcanic face roller

4. The Revlon oil-absorbing volcanic face roller is extremely popular on the internet. You simply swipe it over your face like a magic wand, and it makes excess oil disappear. It is much more convenient than using blotting strips, and way less wasteful than fancy powders that need a ton of blending work.

Promising review: "Oh my gawwwd First off, if you have extremely oily skin, this. is. it. I was so tired of getting blotting powder/wipes. It felt wasteful and always left residue on my face. I saw this on tiktok and NEEDED it. It was back ordered but then I got an email saying it was in stock and I was SO excited. Not only is it affordable, but it's washable which helps you save money and be less wasteful. The packaging wasn't over the top exciting, but it provided you all the info you needed. (It felt like the holy grail had been delivered to my front doorstep.) After my first use, I was in love. Now, it doesn't pickup everything but it does make it more matte and gives you a natural look. I am so excited this product exists and I already feel more confident." — Kelsey B.

5. A SoCozy Curl Spray Leave-In Conditioner in a spray bottle is beloved by kids and parents alike. This lightweight formula is designed to be sprayed in your hair before bedtime to prevent bedhead frizziness and tangles by restoring and detangling curls. But a lot of parents also swear by it for detangling after afternoons in the pool or adventures at summer camp!

Promising review: "Beat product for curly girls. This stuff is fantastic for curly girls! I spray it in my daughter's dry hair in the morning, run my fingers through her ringlets (never ever comb or brush curly hair dry), then clip the top back. It smells amazing, and the price on Amazon is better than other national retailers I've found it at. The price is worth it. Minimizes frizz and keeps curls soft and natural looking. My daughter has soft/fine thick hair." — Carolyn Smith

7. If you shave any areas in the summer that you didn't pay much attention to in the winter, you may get razor bumps, ingrown hair, or razor burn. Tend Skin Solution can help alleviate pain from these conditions.

Promising review: "Hairy women rejoice!! I have wanted to try this for some time as I've heard amazing things. Finally pulled the trigger as it's swimsuit season and ingrown hair and razor bumps plague my bikini line and my thighs, particularly the backs of them. To be honest, I get them everywhere I shave, my lower legs and armpits as well but they are especially bad in my nether regions. This hasn't been a huge deal as the last couple years I was holding onto my pregnancy weight so I've wanted to be more covered anyways, but I lost the weight this year and ditched the swim shorts to hide my upper thighs/bikini line. I'm unfortunately pretty damn hairy due to a hormonal imbalance, so my hair is very course and I'm very prone to all sorts of razor burn issues and ingrown hairs. Used this for the first time after shaving the other night, and I was instantly afraid that it would give me razor burn. My skin is super sensitive after shaving and the alcohol in this stuff STUNG, bad. Alas, I did not get razor burn from it and it actually dried up 4 ingrown hairs that Ive had for weeks within a couple hours. It has been a few days and I'm applying per the instructions. For the first time ever, I'm almost bump free and haven't had a single ingrown hair or pimple like razor bump form. Where has this been all my life??" — Amazon Customer

A white umbrella attached to a chair shading a laptop on a table Reviewer who attached the umbrella to a car seat on the beach to shade a child

9. A "sport-brella," which is an SPF 50+ maneuverable personal umbrella with a universal clamp that'll latch onto any chair you own. Boom, instant shade no matter where you've parked your human self, whether it's the porch, the beach, or the park.

Promising review: "Perfect for watching your kids sporting events! I live in Florida and have two children in sports that I spend countless hours going to practice and games in the hot summer sun... I quickly learned to get a clip-on fan and umbrella to help stay cool, but the small sporting goods store umbrellas only ever seem to work if the sun is directly over your head, not coming from the side, or roasting your back or neck.Finding this Sport-Brella (XL) was like a gift from above... it is bigger, blocks more sun, and most importantly, can be adjusted into all kinds of crazy angles to block the sun from whatever direction it comes from. It is also more durable than previous sport umbrellas I've used in the past.I'm sold on this... it costs a little more, but well worth the investment if you need to spend a lot of time at games and practice." — Wolfshanze

Promising review: "Fragrance/Parfum & Phenoxyethanol* Feels Amazing, my girlfriend got me hooked on it a while back. But, after doing some research and noticing some changes to my skin, we realized that some of the ingredients can be very harmful. Mainly, fragrance/parfum and phenoxyethanol, *a potential neurotoxin and common allergen, were of great concern. Maybe if it was more natural and eco friendly, I would give it 5 stars. Before learning about the harsh chemicals found in this product, I was very pleased with it." — Zaid

a reviewer's hand holding the bug spray bottle

14. A plant-based bug repellent that is DEET-free and able to repel mosquitos for up to six hours without repelling all the humans in your general vicinity. This repellent has a lovely lemon eucalyptus smell, unlike other popular repellents.

Promising review: "Exaggerated safety concerns with this product (and why your own oil might not work) Personally I find this product works very well and I'm happy to have something naturally derived instead of DEET. I understand why people looking for a natural product would like to know what it contains. The most likely reason for warnings about eye irritation and keeping away from flame is that it contains 45% ETHANOL. Have you ever sprayed vodka or isopropanol in your eye? It would be irritating. And yes, it's flammable. The company probably hasn't paid to test the product on children under 3, so they have to tell you not to apply it to them. And just like coca cola will not give you their formula, this company has their own recipe that they don't disclose for financial reasons. If the information isn't on the label, surely Amazon can't "require it" in the description.**Questions about ingredients**The material safety data sheet says it contains 30% oil of lemon eucalyptus (naturally derived) and 45% ethanol. The other ingredients are listed as a "buffer" so probably something to keep the pH at the right level. If you look at the Q&A on the Repel website, many many people have asked about specific ingredients and the company will give a yes or no answer. According to the website, the product does NOT contain: fragrances, petroleum distillates, dyes, formaldehyde, perfluorinated compounds, Bronopol, DMDM hydantoin, BHA, Boric acid, Triclosan, Parabens, PEG, phthalates, urea, Quaternium-15, Propylene glycol, Butylene glycol, sulfates, soy, nuts, milk, eggs, or gluten.**Here's the problem with buying your own lemon eucalyptus oil.**Yes, the active ingredient comes directly from lemon eucalyptus citriodora oil. But in nature, the main component of the oil is citronellal and as the oil ages, that citronellal slowly turns into p-menthane-diol (PMD). PMD is the compound that is effective for repelling insects. This PMD is found only in small amounts in "young" oil, it must be harvested from older leaves/twigs and/or the citronellal is turned into PMD under mildly acidic conditions. You don't know how much PMD is in the aromatherapy oil you buy, so it might not be very effective.I am not associated with this company at all. I am a scientist who also cares what I put on my body. I was ready to buy the essential oil rather than this spray but I can't be sure it has the right ingredients to repel insects. If someone comes out with an essential oil with a measured amount of PMD, I'd be all for it. For now I will stick to Repel, because I don't think it contains any unsafe ingredients and I know it will work." — J B

A reviewer in a gray sweatbandA reviewer photo showing the 10 colors the sweatbands come in

15. A set of wickaway sweatbands that are popular for quickly stopping the sweat from stinging your eyes, or worse, from leaking sunscreen into your eyes.

Promising review: "Too tight for my small head I have been searching high and low trying to find the best replacement for my favorite workout headbands that seem to have been discontinued. These looked very similar and had good reviews so I bought them to try. Sadly I sent them back because they were too tight on my small head, not very well made and the fabric of the headband itself has ZERO stretch whatsoever. I found them cheap and uncomfortable. I guess this really is a case of getting what you pay for. If a lot of headbands on the cheap is what you're after, these might be for you, but if you have a big head, lots of hair or want higher quality/more stretch, take my advice and keep looking. See my pics for comparison with my favorite headband (darker grey on top)." —

16. If you're looking for an invisible sweat shield that won't irritate your sensitive skin, this Vanicream clinical strength anti-perspirant is perfect for you. It's free of dyes, parabens, and formaldehyde, and completely unscented.

Promising review: "Finally, an aluminum and baking soda free deodorant that works. I don't care about the "naturalness" of a deodorant. I care that it doesn't irritate my skin and works, and I really, really prefer unscented deodorant. I am angry that women are apparently "not allowed to sweat," and finding an effective women's deodorant that doesn't have anti-perspirant aluminum is seemingly impossible.I suffered for years from smelling like onion and having pimples in my armpits while using anti-perspirant deodorants with aluminum. I then spent an absurdly long time going through "natural" deodorants that didn't have aluminum, but gave me horrible side effects, or just plain didn't work. I can't believe how much junk there is out there in the "natural" sphere. Baking soda is NOT good under your armpits, and gives a ton of people (including me) a horrible rash. Those Crystal salt stick deodorants don't work at all, and milk of magnesia/magnesium based deodorants did not help me either.I used men's Old Spice Deodorant with no aluminum, but they are so strongly fragranced, and the company doesn't offer any unscented aluminum-free products. Finally I found this Vanicream: a sensitive deodorant that works and doesn't have a strong smell. Apparently this is the only alternative to rubbing lemon on your armpits *rolls eyes*." — Fobetta Ophowerse

We put it on her car seat and on her stroller when we go on walks. I’ve even propped it up on our desk when I’m working and holding our daughter. The three speeds are great: low usually offers just enough of a cool down and high is very impressive because it’s fast and quiet. The lights we didn’t really need but has been a nice feature to have. Our daughter hates going in her car seat and this helps to distract her sometimes. Plus, since we live in Florida we have to wait to go on walks until later in the day and the light lets us be seen easier. Overall, it’s a great and I’d definitely recommend!" — EmLe

Promising review: "Great for Daily Use This past summer, my husband took me tubing down the Rio Salado for four hours in the Arizona summer sun. I slathered on sunscreen before and applied it again religiously every thirty minutes or so, but there is no SPF strong enough to protect the kind of white that glows in the dark.I tried a dozen other remedies while I was recovering from the burn. I didn't make it to this cream until I had started to shed bits and pieces of me everywhere. That was in June; my legs are still two toned (white and red).I still have the same tube of cream that I bought five months ago, and I use it every day on my hands and face just as my regular moisturizer. It leaves my skin feeling moist but not heavy. I like it.There is a sharp, unfamiliar aroma to the cream, but it doesn't mean that it has gone bad or anything.
