Like so many of life’s extravagances expensive sun cream seems quite unnecessary, until you try it.
Having sampled Sisley’s luxurious creams last summer we concluded that they smell better, rub in quicker, feel nicer and offer a much more natural kind of protection than the cheap stuff on the high street. And that’s before we mention the virtues of the slightly-Eighties striped packaging, which is such a perfect expression of haute French chic.
None of this, sadly, comes cheap, but then you wouldn’t expect it to.
