How does it affect your skin?
Staying Power
Does it smell good?
Water resistancy
How easily is it absorbed?

"Not quite the best, but v good. Ambre Solaire Spray"

PRICE
£15 if you believe shops, but I remember a few years back when all lotions were £6, before they doubled the price overnight and started the 241 offers. Price fixers!

Buy on two for one or even better, support Wilkinson who do it around £7 - the honest price.

PRODUCT
A slightly yellow coloured, slightly oily spray. The bottle is good to hold but becomes slippery with product. The pump spray works reasonably well and a relatively fine spray is achieved. There is a clear section on the bottle so you can see what's left - clever.

HOLIDAYING ALONE?
When I went to Crete alone I had to apply cream to the wall and rub my back on it. Now they have a spray you can put it all over yourself without resorting to something resembling erotic dancing in a bathroom.

PERFORMANCE
The product leaves an oily sheen on your skin which tells you where you've applied it, to be fair, but looks sweaty to strangers! I have never burned using this but still tan slightly. Rarely do I need to reapply as it stays on well. I am the sort who burns in about 30 mins on a hot day and have fair skin. It feels like you're using a lot but the reality is the bottle lasts a long time in Britain! I am pleased I don't have to get it all over my hands, bottle lotions are awful for that.

I've given an absorption score of 5 because it isn't sbsorbed as such and doesn't need to be. It lands on your skin and stays there.

OPINION
If they could fix the oily sheen this would get five stars. Thankfully they have - it's an aerosolised product in a can. But this is pretty good if you can't get the new one, and compared to bottles of slimy lotion it's well worth 4 stars.
