Murad Essential-C Sun Balm Broad Spectrum SPF35

We have our fingers crossed that the sun hasn't quite gone down on summer yet - and (ever hopeful) we're keen to share our discovery of this really nifty, take-it-with-you-anywhere sun protection, which you could frankly fit into a clutch bag and still have tons of room to spare. It's absolutely brilliant for topping up sun protection when you're out and about - face, shoulders, décolletage, and any especially vulnerable body bits. Swivels up, swipes on and then blends easily with a finger (no chalkiness), and is nicely moisturising. It features antioxidant vitamins A, C and E, and a new-to-us broccoli extract 'to stimulate the skin's natural defence against UV damage'.

Here's hoping for an Indian summer and the chance to use this a LOT...!
