I don’t think I ever realised how very important sunscreen is until I lived in Dubai. The difference in skin between sun worshippers and those who darted in and out of the shade was startling, and I pretty much instantaneously decided that perfecting my tan shouldn’t be at the top of my priorities. Don’t get me wrong, I love a light golden glow, but anything deeper makes me feel a little anxious.
Thankfully, Vichy have made getting a little sun super easy with their Ideal Soleil Dry Oil in SPF50. As a rule, I only use oil sunscreens on my legs and arms, and I love that Vichy’s offering comes in a spray bottle which makes getting to hard to reach spots a piece of cake! You only need a couple of spritzes of the lightly floral fragranced oil per limb, and it easily soaks into skin leaving a lovely dewy glow. I love the fact that it’s SPF50 too – it means I can apply it in the morning and not really worry about it for an hour or two before I need to top up!
Vichy Ideal Soleil Dry Oil is currently on offer in Boots for £12.37 (was £16.50) and similar here (US)
