Let’s face it, the weather in the summer wasn’t exactly the weather we were hoping for, was it! We were sent some shades for our car so we could tell you what we thought but, to be honest, with the weather so rubbish I kept forgetting to fit them…until we had some sunny days and then I’d be annoyed with myself that the kids were sat in the back seat squinting and moaning about the sun in their eyes #mumfail
So, when we went on a bit of a holiday jaunt to Scarborough, I was very pleased with myself that I remembered to take the shades with us and even more pleased that the sun was SHINING on our journey up (this was the last of the sun that we saw for whole holiday though – ha!).
I’ll keep this brief as how much is there to write about car shades really? We’ve had various ones in the past; they ping off, you lose the suckery bits or they only cover part of the window so there’s still someone moaning about the sun in their eyes…which is why we really loved these from Car Shades UK as none of these things applied.
You order ones to fit your specific make of car and they send shades for each of the back passenger windows, those little triangle windows at the rear (if your car has them) and ones to fit the rear back window too! They fit the windows exactly and you can still use the passenger windows with them fitted, and are shady enough whilst still allowing you to see out!

*Our set of car shades were sent as a freebie, but as with all our reviews, we would rather go on a long car journey with three kids endlessly whinging for snacks and asking if we’re there yet (mine had eaten all the sandwiches 30 minutes into a 5-hour journey 😬), than write anything other than our honest opinion!*
