Why do I need to use a sunscreen?

Sunscreen 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 sunscreen 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 sunscreen?

You’re not the only one that’s confused when it comes to physical and chemical sunscreens. 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 for oily skin

The texture of this sunscreen is a little too greasy and thick for me (I have oily skin type), and it would leave a white-cast on the skin. I gave this sunscreen to one of my dry skin friends, and she absolutely loves this product. She puts on make up everyday and sometimes, as she told me, she just used it as a primer and worked like a charm. Anyway, great product, but not for oily skin.

Holy grail sunscreen!

This was recommended to me by my dermal therapist and I cannot love this product more! Glides into my skin & sits beautifully under make up. Zero irritation, so light, barely feels like you’re wearing anything. Amazing price point for such a great product.

Perfect sunscreen

Prior to this I was using a super expensive facial sunscreen by Eve Lom, I'm as pale as they come and i use retinol so sun protection everyday is a must. This sunscreen out performs more expensive ones by epic amounts, it's very liquidy so you have to be careful but it sinks into the skin in a few minutes and dosnt cause your face to be super shiny like most. Will always have at least a couple of these on hand

One of the better SPF's

The main thing I like about this is that it has not broken out my acne-prone skin. I don't mind this sunscreen in terms of the feel of it but apply at least 15 mins before you put makeup over it to let it sink in properly.
