I use a high sun factor on my face most of the year.  In the summer I am guaranteed to remember to apply my factor 50 but in the winter I will admit it is a bit more hit and miss.  The sun has finally decided to show its face and I have had to stock up on sun protection to have enough to last myself and the children and not forgetting the hubby the duration of the summer period.

As well as the level of sun protection I can also be influenced the scent of a product when making my purchase.  Last year I discovered Malibu had the most amazing scented sun protector offering UVA and UVB protection that is supposed to last for the whole day (8 hours), has a SPFof 50, is water resistant, has a dry feel and is photostable.  It is as if they have bottled the aroma of a tropical holiday, I simple do love it as do my daughters who now refuse to wear their children’s factor 50 in favour of this product.

I normally reapply every few hours if I am visiting a hot climate to make sure I have as much protection as possible.  It is also suggested that the product is reapplied after swimming in case any of the product has rubbed off.  The product soak into the skin well and gives a light sheen but isn’t greasy to the touch and leaves the skin feeling silky soft too!


Do you use a high sun factor on your skin?

  1. High factor suncream is so vital. I hate sewing poor kids red raw because a parent hasn’t reapplied. The one problem I have in certain climates with Malibu is the fragrance as I found it attracted mosquitoes.

  2. I do use it but not half as much as I should. It’s amazing really, we are all really careful making sure are children our protected against harmful sun rays we often forget about ourselves…which is really silly.

  4. This sounds lovely, I’d love to smell all tropical while lying in the garden..! A spray is so much easier for me also as I have problems with my arms and find spray a lot easier to get all over skin x
