Why do I need to use a sunscreen?

Suncream is the best anti-aging product that exists, as it has the ability to prevent and protect against major signs of premature ageing. UV exposure is one of the most significant ageing factors that is under your control. The effects of the sun are powerful and range from sunburn to collagen breakdown, and scarily can even lead to skin cancer. Although you may only feel that it is important to use sunscreen when you’re on holiday, it's also crucial to include this step in your daily skincare routine. Whether you’re in the office, picking up the kids from school or going for your daily walk, by integrating a broad-spectrum suncream daily into your routine, you can enjoy youthful-looking skin for many more years to come.


What causes sunburn and sun damage?

The UV light that reaches your skin daily consists of both UVA and UVB rays. UVB light is strongest during the summer and is the primary cause of sunburn. UVA light is consistent all year round, penetrates deeply, and causes damage without sunburn. Integrating a high-SPF sunscreen that advertises broad-spectrum protection, UVA protection, or a PA+ rating will safeguard your skin with daily use.


What’s the difference between a Physical and Chemical suncream?

You’re not the only one that’s confused when it comes to physical and chemical suncreams. Let us break it down for you. A physical sunscreen, as its name suggests, creates a physical barrier between the sun and your vulnerable skin. Physical sunscreen formulas remain on the surface of your skin and do not absorb. However, a chemical sunscreen does the exact opposite and penetrates skin and is absorbed by the deeper layers of your skin. Chemical sunscreens soak up the damaging rays, like a sponge, to prevent them doing any damage.

Not all it hyped up to be

Packaging was beautiful. The pump at the bottom is odd so you have to hold it in an awkward position to pump it out. Texture is very thick and doesn't spread well over your face unless you use HEAPS. Love that its spf 50+ though. Also when you open the lid, the product is only 3/4 full so for the brand and price I probably wouldn't recommend. It may depend on your skin type but my make up sit...

Love it

I wear this everyday! So light and hydrating and goes under makeup so easily. It genuinely doesn't feel like a sunscreen, more like a moisturiser that makes it such a natural step in any skincare routine!

Did not love

I bought the supersize version of this as I was looking for a more cost-effective sunscreen compared to Ultra Violette. I was disappointed to say the least! It works fine as a sunscreen but I found it quite greasy and sunscreen-like to apply, and it left my face a disco ball level of shiny. I have normal-oily skin which normal isn't an issue when it comes to a daily sunscreen. After a full day wor...
