Vichy Ideal Soleil Invisible Hydrating Mist (£18.00)
An undeniably discrete and efficient sun protection spray, this contains no alcohol but is brimming with glycerin for optimal moisturisation all day long. It also contains emollient agents and Vichy Thermal Spa Water to leave skin refreshed, hydrated and protected simultaneously. The hydrating spray dries in seconds, leaving an invisible finish on the skin, meaning it's an absolute pleasure (rather than a chore) to apply.
That’so Pure Sun All In One (£18.95)
This incredibly innovative buildable dry sun oil provides either SPF20, SPF30 or SPF50 depending how much product you apply to the skin. All you need do is wait a little between applications, ensuring you’re safe to step out in the sun for longer. What’s even better is that the formula also includes ingredients to stimulate melanin production as well as a tanning activator, to ensure you get a golden glow with minimal sun exposure. This is the future of sun protection.
Bioderma Moisturising Anti-UV Mist (£9.00)
Somewhat of a game-changer, this lightweight mist is the first of its kind to land in the UK. A rehydrating mist that will prevent skin-ageing and shield the skin from harmful UV rays, it provides an instant dose of freshness to the skin. Enriched with a patented complex which stimulates the skin to rehydrate itself continuously, the invisible mist also contains a sunscreen patent which reinforces the skin’s own defense mechanisms. All you need is four spritzes across the face to boost skin and ensure protection throughout the day - making it easy to top up when you're out and about without having to remove makeup. I would advise that this isn't worn alone though; take it with you on day trips as a top-up and definitely don't apply it when on the beach.
Piz Buin Protect & Cool Refreshing Sun Mousse (£9.00)
If you hate the feeling of applying creamy, runny lotion over your hot and sweaty skin, then you’ll be pleased to know this is a cooling and refreshing alternative. When spritzed onto skin the bottle delivers a light and cooling foam that absorbs effortlessly, leaving skin feeling fresh. The slightly crackling sound and bubbling texture makes applying sun protection fun - so definitely one for the kids too! Free from alcohol, the hydrating formulation is instantly absorbing, non-greasy, non-sticky and doesn’t leave white marks.
Vichy Ideal Soleil In Shower After Sun Oil (£13.00)
After suns are often overlooked, but they're actually an incredibly important addition to your summer suncare routine. When sat in the sun skin can become dehydrated and damaged, so an after sun can inject an essential amount of moisture and goodness while preventing peeling. If you're not keen on lathering a cream all over your body, then try this lightweight in-shower oil which works super fast even on wet skin. Either apply the oil direct onto dry skin, or massage into exposed areas while you're washing in the shower; skin is left smooth without any greasy texture.
Vita Liberata Phenomenal Marula Self Tan Oil With SPF50 (£39.00)
Introducing the world’s first self tan dry oil with added SPF50 sun protection. This beautifully packaged dry tanning oil contains certified organic ingredients condition and nourish the skin, offering a skincare regime while tanning and protecting. East African Marula Oil provides superior anti-aging and hydrating benefits (it’s four times more hydrating than Argan Oil and contains four times more Vitamin C than oranges,) as well as Tahitian Monoi Oil for healing, skin repair and additional moisture locking. It glides over skin to offer a beautifully bronzed result, while offering high performance sun protection simultaneously, meaning you’ll never have to go to the beach looking pasty pale again.
