Great sunscreen/moisturiser!

This is a 50+ sunscreen and great moisturiser all in one!! I can give the morning routine moisturiser step a miss which is great so as to not have to layer up too much product. Lovely and non-greasy and a good base for make-up too. Only reason that am not giving a 5 star review is that this is quite an expensive product for a small tube!!

Very light weight feels very nice on skin

Light weight everyday wear

Best spf ever!

Feel light and not sticky! I don’t leave the house without it!

Excellent sunscreen

I love that this isn’t too oily and it’s non-ghosting (as an olive skinned woman, nothing worse!). It is quite small though, and wish it came in a larger size.
