Just in case you can’t guess from my arty pool picture, I call it the floating beauty empties, I’ve just got back from a very hot – nearly two weeks – in Majorca.
And, rather than give you the lowdown of the new AW/13 beauty trends, I thought you might be interested in what sun care products my little family used and finished every last drop of on holiday. Here goes…
1 Nivea Sun Protect & Refresh SPF30, £8.49, the OH and myself used this from stepping off the plane and we didn’t burn once.
2 Soltan’s Once Kids 8 Hour Play Suncare Lotion, SPF50, £15.99 currently £7.99, applied on the kids and on my heat rash before we hit the beach everyday and the protection lasted pretty much till the second long stint in the sea.
3 Lancaster Sun For Kids Invisible Mist Wet Skin SPF50, £21, perfect for spritzing on the kids while on the beach as it works even if they’re still wet and it dries in seconds. Quick – tick. Clear – tick. Posh – tick.
4 Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Sun Defense Stick SPF50 High Protection, £15, a total unsung beauty hero as this little stick makes it easy to cover vulnerable areas and does not melt or crumble in the heat, which trust me, a lot of other sun care sticks do, do!
5 Garnier Ambre Solaire Sensitive Advanced Face & Body After Sun, £9.99, don’t be put off by the ‘Sensitive’ tag as this after sun is amazing and can be used by the whole family. How can I tell? Erm, this was the one holiday product that you had to fight to get your hands on!
