This essential sun protection lotion is available to purchase from major supermarkets as well as chemist chains like Boots and Superdrug within the UK. I personally bought this becasue I needed a strong SPF factor for my pale skin and this was on offer. It cost me just less than five pounds which is about average price for this sort of product.
The product comes in a bottle which has 200mls worth of liquid protection. You can dispense the liquid by sqeezing the bottle although you may need to tap the liquid to the dispensing end as it's rather thick and gloopy. The liquid itself is white and very much like a oily body lotion. It feels cool and silky when applying. It absorbs well into the skin leaving my skin feeling protected from the sun, moisturised and healthy. It also improves the way my skin looks as it gives a slight glistening effect to any dry areas too. Once applied it doesn't make my skin greasy or slippy.
You need to apply this just prior to going out into the sun and at regular intervals thereafter. It needs to be reapplied after any activity like swimming, exercise or if the lotion has been rubbed off my clothing or towels.
I'm happy with the level of protection this lotion offers me. I also like that I can use the lotion on my face and neck as well as all over the body. That versatility means I don't need to invest in a seperate SPF face cream. I also like that the lotion doesn't smell obviously like a sun lotion and rather more has a delicate, gender-netural, fresh fragrance much like a high quality body moisturiser. It means I can apply this on any occasion and not just when I'm on holiday or sunbathing!
The bottle has two labels on it which are printed with a lot of helpful advice about caring for your skin in the sun and how to use the product. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes a high SPF factor sun cream. It's suitable for both men and women.
