    By now, everyone pretty much knows the drill: sunscreen is the most important formula you can slather on your skin. It protects from harmful UV rays that can result in long-lasting damage including sagging, wrinkles, sun spots and skin cancer. The only catch is that you need to wear it every single day. To be honest, we opt for a tinted moisturiser with lower SPF in winter. But when spring hits, we get serious again. Our focus turns to finding a formulation that absorbs quickly, works under make-up and delivers some serious protection.

    When a member of our team said a dermatologist had recommended this affordable formula – and that she absolutely loved it – I was intrigued. I’d tried the cream version last summer, but it was too heavy for my combination skin. This gel formula glides on and absorbs quickly – I barely felt like I’d applied anything at all. I’ll be adding this to my summer holiday suitcase.

    This is a beauty staple in my skin wardrobe. I love that this creamy formula feels hydrating, but sinks in quickly. It never gives my skin a shine, so it works well under make-up and is a cinch to re-apply during the day too. I just dab it over my face if I’m out in the sun. My routine most mornings is to wash, tone, apply antioxidant serum and then smooth this sunscreen all over.

    I am super-sensitive – I even react to some mineral sunscreens, but this clear watergel formula felt great on my skin. It sinks in really fast, which meant I could apply make-up straight away. And I really like that it contains antioxidants, such as vitamin E and aloe leaf.

    This sunscreen feels more like a serum. I love the way it glides on and leaves skin with a glow – but not a sticky one. In addition to broad-spectrum protection, this mineral-based formula also has hydrating ingredients, and antioxidants like vitamin C. So I really like that while it protects, it’s also helping my skin look and feel better.
