I think it’s fair to say that currently, Scotland is enjoying it’s allocation of summer weather. For the past three or so weeks, it’s been nothing but blue skies and increasingly warmer temperatures, and I have to say, I’ve been absolutely loving it! To be honest, I don’t normally apply a dedicated SPF when I’m in the UK – all my moisturisers are at least SPF 15, and that’s normally more than enough for the paltry sunlight we get, but I have to say, the day before the Margaret Dabbs’ SPF 30 Sun Defence for Hands, I spent basically an entire day driving around with the window down – by the end of the day, my whole right hand and lower arm had sunburn!
Thankfully it was nothing too serious, but it was kind of shocking, so, you can imagine, when a sunscreen specifically designed for hands popped through the door, it felt like fate! Margaret Dabbs’ is the authority on everything hands and feet, so I couldn’t wait to try the sunscreen. I have to say, I’ve never even thought about having a formula specifically designed for hands, but, considering everything they go through, it makes a tonne of sense!
Packaged in a sunny yellow bottle, complete with spray nozzle, I’ve actually been keeping the SPF 30 Sun Defence for Hands in the side door pocket of the car. Every time I get in, I give my hands (and arms, if I’m wearing a shorter sleeve) a quick spray, rub it in, then carry on with my day. It’s so easy and convenient to use, and if you live somewhere with more than Scotland’s couple of days of sunshine, I feel like this is a real must-have.
Unlike most sunscreens, Margaret Dabbs’ doesn’t feel heavy, or leave skin with a sticky film. Instead, it’s super lightweight, and a quick spritz is all you need for full protection. The formula is also fortified with pure Emu and Argan oils which means your hands get a does of nourishment and well as protection. I’m also a big fan of the scent – Mandarin and Geranium oils means it smells beautifully spa-like, rather than the usual giveaway coconut. It’s such a genius little product, and it’s become part of my routine every time I get in the car – if, like me, you spend a whole lot of time driving around, you need to try this!
Margaret Dabbs’ SPF 30 Sun Defence for Hands is priced at £22.00 and is available here.
