Dior Bronze (2018 collection)


We'll keep this short. After all, you want to get back out there into the sunshine. (And who can blame you?)

Heaven-scented with exotic white floral monoi oil, these are pure joy to have in your beach bag. The smell alone – never mind the texture – encourages diligent application, which is of course the key with suncare. (Keep it topped up, always.) Even better, it has subtle shimmering highlights so that skin looks better from the moment you apply it. (Especially if you've self-tanned beforehand or – and it's almost unavoidable at the moment – already picked up some colour.)

Of the four-product range, we've a couple of favourite finds: the meltingly deliciously-textured Beautifying Protective Creme Sublime Glow SPF50, which is just fab for faces as it features not only broad-spectrum UVA and UVB filters, but has an antioxidant and a preventive anti-dark spot action. (Water-resistant, too.)

Our other fave is the wonderfully moisturising Beautifying Protective Milky Mist Sublime Glow SPF 30, which spritzes onto skin, sinks in beautifully and has an exquisite light-reflecting, pearly finish. (Again, water-resistant.) Alongside these, find a trio of other tan treats: an SPF30 facial product similar to the SPF50, a spritz-on tanning oil with an SPF15 (we would rather not go that low, even on bodies), and a sublime after-sun.

All glorious to use – whether you're in Penzance or Positano. (And isn't it AMAZING living in a country where everyone has a tan...?)
