A Sunny Haul

I'm not sure how much you can tell from photos, but i'm naturally quite pale. I rarely tan and factor 30 is the lowest I could ever go without baking myself to the crisp. Fed up of coming home burnt or not looking like i've been away, i've made it my mission to go all-out this year with the sun products in a bid to save my skin and embrace a tan.

First to enter my basket was Piz Buin's raved about sun creams. I've read up countless reviews on Piz Buin's products but couldn't justify the near-£20 price tag per bottle. However, sun creams are currently half price in Boots (yay!) so I just couldn't resist. I took home the SPF 30 1 Day Long bottle and the SPF 30 Tan Accelerating oil spray to top up later on if I need it. I'm thinking that I should probably get another bottle of the 1 Day Long as i'm travelling for 2 weeks and I don't want to run out.

Next was the Nivea Sun Protect lip protection. I hate hate hate having dry or burnt lips so this is an absolute must. This is something i've always gone back to, it's by no means a miracle product but it does the job. The SPF 50 Garnier Ambre Solaire is for my boyfriend as he burns even easier than I do. I thought he could use it on the most easily burnt places and smother the factor 30 everywhere else. Simples.

Whilst the next two products are perhaps not essentials, they're pretty damn close. Not only does After Sun feel amazing after a long day in the sun, it also prevents peeling thus making your tan last longer. The Magicool spray feels amazing and will no doubt be well loved in busy Paris or boiling hot Venice. Again, i'm debating getting another bottle, but i'm conscious of not having enough space in my backpack.

I'm planning to do posts all about my trip soon, so if you have any suggestions feel free to let me know.

What sun products do you use? Are you going away this year?
