WHY CHOOSE THIS ONE?
I purchased this clear protection spray from Garnier Ambre Solaire for this year’s holiday.
I always buy several sun sprays and tend to take different types of sun protection, especially as my husband sometimes likes a different brand than my favoured products.
This year we were in agreement that we wanted to try this clear protection spray.
My husband found this spray easy to apply and he liked the way it spread easily and didn’t show up on the skin. He also appreciated the fact that it doesn't feel at all greasy.
However, I found it rather difficult to spray. This is more due to difficulty with hand action owing to muscle weakness than a fault with the design but because of this I will try to remember in future to choose a spray that I find much easier to use.
It is easy to apply to the skin once sprayed.
I will say that I thought it had a strong alcohol smell, which I didn’t like.
It worked in terms of sun protection. We were in the sun a lot, lounging about on our sunbeds but neither of us were sun burnt. And this was in the hot and strong Cyprus sunshine.
I think if the correct amount is applied and frequently then this spray protects well.
I did find that after using this for a few days my skin felt a little irritated. My skin is sensitive and I think this product is a little too strong for my skin which is on the sensitive side.
I think this product does its job. It doesn't feel sticky or greasy on one’s skin and it is easily absorbed but I would prefer a spray that’s easier for me to use and one that is perhaps a little gentler.
It is water resistant which for us an advantage; we can’t sit still for too long and like to go from lounger to pool to lounger to sea.
It has an SPF factor of 30.
I can’t remember where I purchased this sun spray but it was in a supermarket and on offer.
I paid around £5 for the spray.
