I’d usually look for sun protection after booking a holiday, but DIOR’s latest Dior Bronze releases are actually inspiring me to book one! Yes, you read that right, I’m excited about suncare. But this isn’t any old sun collection, it’s DIOR, and if anyone can make suncare luxurious, it’s them.
Just in time for the summer season, three new Dior Bronze suncare formulas have been revealed, and yes, they’re all as beautifully scented and skin-enhancing as the rest of the range.
But, before I shine a light on the new innovations, here’s a quick rundown of everything you need to know about the luxurious range…
Why choose Dior Bronze?
It’s a suncare library unlike any other. Not only do the formulas offer protection against UVA, UVB rays and free radicals, but they all have lavish textures and a spectacular sun-kissed scent.
The range is split into three categories; Sun Protection, which contains SPF formulas in varying textures to shield and enhance your skin; Aftersun, a crucial step in any suncare regime, Dior’s Monoi Balm takes pride of place in this category; and, last but not least, the Self-Tanners, a collection that helps you keep that summer tan you’ve become attached to.
Dior Bronze is for anyone who wants to look and feel their absolute best in the sun. There’s no white cast in sight or clinical packaging, just sublime textures that instantly beautify your skin and makes you feel like a million dollars. It also helps that the packaging will make you the definition of ‘poolside chic’.
#1 DIOR Dior Bronze Beautifying Protective Oil Sublime Glow SPF15
When it comes to suncare, I am all about oils. Not only are they easy to apply, but they instantly make your skin look glowing and healthy.
Some brands get SPF oils all wrong by making the formulas too runny or wet-looking, but DIOR has hit the nail on the head with their Beautifying Protective Oil Sublime Glow. Not only can the formula be used on the face, body and hair but it melts into skin with ease, leaving a satin finish with a radiant sheen that catches the light beautifully.
The SPF15 provides skin with protection against UVA, UVB rays and free radicals (fairer skin types will benefit from using a higher SPF, like the milky mist below), while an innovative Tan Beautifier Complex will help prolong your glow. If you have fair skin you may benefit from a higher SPF filter, and luckily, the product up next has just that.
Something else to note about the Beautifying Protective Oil is how you apply it. The oil has a spray mechanism that works 360 degrees, so hard to reach areas won’t be left unprotected!
#2 DIOR Dior Bronze Beautifying Protective Milky Mist Sublime Glow SPF30
If oils aren’t for you, DIOR hasn’t forgotten about you. For those that prefer more of a milky texture to their suncare, look no further than the Beautifying Protective Milky Mist Sublime Glow SPF30.
Milky can often mean messy, but not in this case. An elegant diffuser that works at 360 degrees creates a beautiful mist of hydrating protection that means no part of your face or body is missed – finally!
Just like the Beautifying Protective Oil you can expect protection against UVA and UVB rays, however, this time at a higher protection level thanks to its SPF30 filters. This formula also contains both the Tan Beautifier Complex and the delicious Dior Bronze scent we all know and love.
Another reason to choose the Milky Mist is the subtle light-reflecting particles that are infused throughout it. Thanks to these, the skin will glow after application and have a soft, satin finish.
#3 DIOR Dior Bronze Monoi Balm After Sun
Sometimes, aftersun can be a bit of an afterthought. But, I can assure you; once you try the Dior Bronze Monoi Balm After Sun it’ll be all you think about. Believe me; I am sat at my desk applying it right now.
Not only does it smell like sun-drenched Polynesian flowers, but the formula has three actions: soothing, moisturising and tan-pro-longing. What else could you ever want from an after sun?
The rich, non-sticky balm is enriched with monoi extracts, which rehydrate the skin and compensates for dryness caused by the sun, while the tan-prolonging action helps boost and extend the longevity of your tan, so that your skin looks gorgeous and glowing, long after your trip.
