This sunscreen is so good you'll want to wear it every day (even if you hate SPF)







Dermatologists and skincare enthusiasts always recommend a daily dose of sunscreen, but you'd be forgiven if you left it out of your morning beauty routine.


Suffice to say, until recently, SPF formulas were far from ideal. Whether you choose high-end or high-street products, it can be hard to find products that aren't sticky or greasy, burn your eyes, or leave a gray cast on dark skin.

Of course, sunscreen is there to protect you, but that doesn't mean you have to compromise. Why should you wear sunscreen during the day?


As the UK slowly starts to embrace the idea of ​​wearing SPF sunscreen year-round to protect skin from cancer-causing UVA rays and prevent common skin problems like dark spots and fine lines, it's fair to say Australian Skincare

- Fans Know more than a thing or two about must-have skin care products.


After all, they get more sunlight than we do. When Australian sunscreen brand Ultra Violette landed on Space NK last year (followed by Cult Beauty and Sephora), the hype was justified.

From lightweight sunscreen serums to hydrating face creams, these products have earned five-star reviews, and for good reason: They're unlike anything skincare enthusiasts have tried before.


What is the best SPF value for oily, combination and dry skin? I started with the Ultra Violette Super Supreme Screen Hydrating Facial Skinscreen SPF50+, £48. A quick chat with friends, family, and co-workers revealed that many

people are unsure about SPF 50 (it's one of the highest factors and provides great protection) because they're worried it will look chalky or feel heavy on the skin. This makes this sunscreen completely different.


It's hydrating enough to double as a moisturizer and primer, but light enough that it doesn't leave a white cast (reviews agree). It takes a two-pronged approach to target dark spots and hyperpigmentation, and adds brightening

vitamin C so you don't need to apply another serum underneath. If you prefer fragrance-free products or have sensitive skin, try Clean Screen Sensitive Skinscreen SPF 30, £32, which has become my go-to (and I'm pretty picky).


This is a mineral sunscreen that reflects UV rays off the skin to ensure it doesn't turn white.

Two or three pumps work quickly, and the best part is, you don't feel like you're wearing anything at all. I apply it on top of my moisturizer for an extra boost of hydration, but it's so refreshing that you can use it on its own.


If you are prone to acne or have overly oily skin, you will definitely love this. For anyone looking for a tinted sunscreen, look no further than Ultra Violette Daydream Screen SPF50 Tinted Veil (£38). 16 shades offer a pop of

color, combining your favorite tinted moisturizer with high-performance sunscreen.


Like the other products, it doesn't feel like a typical sunscreen and more like a daily moisturizer, making it easy and enjoyable to use. The range also includes a hydrating lip balm, £16, which comes in four colors (because

your lips need sun protection too) an oil-controlling mineral SPF, £34, which tame shine, and a hand and body sunscreen, £27. Need to reapply SPF? It's important to reapply sunscreen every two hours to maximize its effectiveness,


especially on sunny days outdoors, says skin care expert Holly Thaggard, founder and CEO of Supergoop! However, I admit that Ultra Violette may not be the cheapest sunscreen brand on the market. TikTok users are raving about

the affordable Garnier Ambre Solaire Super UV Face Fluid (£7.99) and Eucerin Sun Oil Control Face Protection Sunscreen SPF 50+ (£16) for oily and blemish-prone skin, which are available on Amazon and Boots Available.


Dermatologists also recommend the Altruist Dermatographer Sunscreen SPF 50, which is a steal at £4.99. If you wear makeup or don't like applying sunscreen with your hands, I would recommend Garnier's Ambre Solaire Sensitive Face Sun Cream Mist SPF 50 for 8, recommended £04. It is cheap, commercially available, and easy to replenish.
