Like most people I’m a sucker for the end of season ski sales, and a couple of seasons ago I picked up a good deal in the form of a pair of Head Vector LTD boots. They fitted me pretty nicely straight from the box but as the following season wore on they packed down to the extent where there have been days when it’s felt like my feet are racing around on a private little adventure of their own inside the boots.

We reckon this is the best suncream for skiing.

It's not something you usually get excited about; in fact it's usually something you begrudge paying too much for, forget to put on, suffer awkward leaks or spillages, and then wash off by mistake in a slush tumble. It's suncream - absolutely critical for spring skiing, but not an awful lot of fun.
