Facial sunscreens are not the most exciting skincare product – actually, your sunscreen is probably your least favourite product, right? It’s always a risk switching to a new SPF product, because there’s always a chance it might not agree with your skin. It might be too thick, it might not absorb how you’d like it to, or you might not like the smell. Well, we’re coming to the rescue with our best-selling SPF50 facial sunscreens in time for summer:


asap moisturising daily defense spf50 replenishes essential moisture while providing broad spectrum protection from harmful UVA/UVB rays. Effective anti-ageing ingredient Hyaluronic Acid improves hydration in the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Meanwhile, super-replenishing antioxidant Niacinamide helps to improve skin elasticity and the appearance of pigmentation.

★★★★★ Great protective moisturiser 

“I have tried many SPF moisturisers and all of them have reacted badly with my skin until now. This product does not leave any greasy residue. It absorbs quickly and gives me peace of mind that my skin is protected and will not break out as a result of using it. This is my new all time favourite daytime moisturiser.”

★★★★★ Excellent buy

“I am in my mid 50’s and for years have avoided using sunscreen as they always left my skin greasy and caused breakouts. In fact most moisturisers caused the same problem. I tried this product expecting more of the same, but have been using it for several weeks now and no breakouts. I so pleased to finally find a sunscreen that not only protects my skin but moisturises it as well. Thank you Alpha H for another fabulous product. I will never stop using it.”

★★★★ Beautiful Product

“I was advised by my beautician to use this product with the Vitamin C powder which I do and I really lovely it. It is thickish and white but once massaged in it doesn’t leave anything visible on the skin. I’m not keen on products in tubes as it is difficult to get the last of it out but it is such good value, as is all the Skinstitut range, that I will certainly stick with it.”
