Though the time for whipping out the factor 30 may still be a little way away, as the scouts say…’Be Prepared’ and prepared we are, with the very first sunscreen review of 2011!
Though February might seem slightly premature for sunscreen, one of our Beauty Resource ladies was recently holidaying in St Lucia when she discovered this little gem – Lancaster Sun Sport Multi-zone Cream & Stick SPF 30.
This product features a rollerball sun protectant for eyes, lips, ears, nose and other delicate areas and then in a separate compartment there is a sun cream which can be used on larger areas. The tube is small and perfectly formed so you can easily pop this into a pocket or handbag and one of the most fantastic features of this product is the fact it is also sweat and water resistant. Lets see what else Debs has to say about her new holiday holy grail:
‘This tube was easily the most useful of all my creams whilst away on holiday. It is small enough to fit into a handbag and the rollerball is great for quick and easy application to the face, neck and decolletage. Particularly appreciated the sweat resistant factor as it ensured my chest area (which can often be sweaty and is prone to burning) was fully protected.
In terms of texture the cream also scored top marks. Some creams with SPF 30 can be extremely thick and difficult to rub in but this is silky to touch and absorbs rapidly into the skin. Though I would usually be reluctant to part with £21 for what some may consider to be a small amount of product, after 10 days of continuous usage in the St Lucia sun I still have some product left! Would say this product is worth the price and it will definitely be joining me on my next holiday. Overall would mark this product 9/10 .’
