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.

Great SPF

Lovely SPF for everyday. The tint is a little pink for me so I will likely get the untinted version next time. Though you cannot really see it once it has blended into the skin. Has a strong SPF smell and is a watery texture.

No sheen or smell

I love that this product doesn’t have that awful sunscreen smell and doesn’t leave my face shiny. It’s easily to apply and I find it doesn’t get flaky when I layer over other products. Best sunscreen I’ve used.

Part of my everyday routine

I have very acne prone skin, mainly caused by hormones and stress. As I was changing to a different contraceptive I was really scared about my skin flaring up. As the acne cream I was using made my skin sensitive to the sun, I needed a moisturiser with a high SPF in it and this was the best I could find! Smooth on the skin, does leave the skin slightly tacky but what do you expect from an spf
