Beauty Insider: this week's hottest beauty buys
This year has seen a long awaited sophistication finally arrive to serious grown-up sun care.Yeah, we all know the importance of SPF, but practicality shouldn't have to include being bitter about parting with your hard earned cash on something that's just a bit meh! Good quality tanning lotions aren't cheap so why not invest in something that does the job but also looks and smells good at the same time?
The hottest buys this season all focus on satin finishes, non-sticky textures and easy to apply formulas cutting out the white streaks and sand in hard to reach places.
Nuxe Sun range promises 'ideal protection, total Glamour' and their Milky Spray (face and body), SPF20, €20, doesn't disappoint. (It's Insider's favourite all-rounder).
Garnier Ambre Solaire Dry Mist, sprays at all angles and has mattifying powders (music to my ears!) SPF50 €22.99
Lancaster Satin Sheen Oil, with Tan Activator Complex for a 'faster, deeper, flawless tan' (ooh, er!) SPF30, €30.50
