Even though it might not feel like it today (thanks to lashings of rain and rather low temperatures) we’re still grasping onto the last legs of summer, so I’ve been keeping a tube of Vichy Ideal Soleil SPF50 handy for whenever the sun decides to peak out.
For someone with sensitive skin like mine, Vichy’s Ideal Soleil is the perfect answer for sun protection. Where some lotions can feel too thick, or give me hives, Vichy’s offering feels like a light body lotion to apply. You only ned a quick squirt to cover limbs in the sunscreen, and I love the light fresh fragrance. It immediately sinks into skin, and doesn’t leave me feeling dry or weirdly sticky. Instead, my skin feels soft, smooth and moisturised, and it is left with a lovely sheen. Since the SPF50 is quite high, I don’t feel the need to reapply every two minutes, instead I can enjoy a few hours out in the sunshine, without worrying about waking up lobster red tomorrow!
Vichy Ideal Soleil is priced at £16.50 and is available here.
