I was overwhelmed by the choice available at Boots. I have fair skin and tend to burn quite easily. Rather than get one on the Shop's own make, is it worth investing a bit more into something like Piz Buin? Please let me know of any that work well for you?

Ultrasun is the bomb.

I use Nivea Factor 30 - the milk kind not the clear spray. I find the clear stuff quite harsh on the skin and the time I used it I burnt as I had missed a patch. I have fair skin and burn easily but a good slosh of factor 30 throughout the day works well for me.

I really rate Aldi Calypso once a day factor 20- it's like a gel and low factor but none of us freckly fair ones in my family seem to be burning, it's great stuff.

Ultrasun. Is indeed The Bomb.
It works and I'm not allergic to it. And no more slapping lotion on ever 20 minutes.

SunSense is great. It's Australian so very effective. Also low allergy risk. It's often prescribed by GPs for eczema suffers.

I was also going to mention ALDI calypso factor 20. It's a once a day gel and I just slather that on in the morning and top up with my FL suncream <hides> because it doesn't fucking stain clothing or whichever brand. I haven't used any others for years.

Aldi's own brand is a which best buy, it has better uva protection than nivea and ambre solaire (5 stars versus 3 stars) and it's cheap so you can use it liberally.
Ultrasun is also great but more pricy.

Ultrasun too, usually you can get good offers on QVC or TK Maxx

I like ambre solaire, doesn't stink too badly and not greasy.

Unless you are made of money, not boots! Wilkinson, home bargains, b and m, superdrug.

I'd be wary of buying something like sun cream at TK Maxx. Their toiletries are often old or expired stock, and that's not a risk you want to take with sunscreen.

Non greasy
