Rated 5 out of 5 by Paula1 Great sunscreen
I use this sunscreen, which I apply liberally and after swimming, whilst on my holidays abroad and when I'm sailing in the UK. As a result, I have a lovely gentle golden tan and my skin is beautifully soft. More importantly, however, I feel this product has helped to protect me to a certain extent from the sun. Needless to say, I also wear a hat, sunglasses and always cover up in extreme heat, especially in the middle of the day. The only problem is that it's not waterproof and if like me you spend a great deal of time messing around in the water, keep your head and body beneath the surface and you you should be ok!

Rated 4 out of 5 by jenny74 Good product
I think this is a good product for someone with medium to dark skin, however I think someone who is very fair and uses it to sit out at the beach all day will still get burned. That's exactly what happened to me. It did not provide enough protection for an entire day out in the North Atlantic sun -which comparatively speaking is not that strong. I have fair to medium skin and have spent every summer on the beach since i was a child but I still burn quite easily. It is definitely not something I would recommend for the face and neck area, but if you want to get some color on your body than this is a good product-it truly does allow you to get brown without too much redness-at least in areas that are already somewhat acclimated to sun exposure.
It smells beautiful and is very hydrating and moisturizing. i would definitely repurchase if it wasn't so expensive.

I was very unsure about this product with no SPF. I am fair skinned and do bun, although go a nice honey shade if I work at it! This cream is amazing, after a week, I have a beautiful golden tan. Make sure you reapply if you go into the sea/pool, as it is not waterproof, and this was the only time I had a slight burn. This is the only reason I've not given the full 5 stars. Expensive but worth it. Aftersun is very good along side this product.
