COMPLETE THE REGIME
This natural moisturiser with sunscreen SPF 15 is light, moisturising and outstanding for use in the harsh Australian sun and when swimming. True to the Simplicité range, this powerful combination of 17 freshly extracted, medicinal grade plant extracts provide a natural, yet highly effective moisturiser with sunscreen. This product has been designed to provide all the wonderful skin care benefits you'd expect from Simplicité while still protecting you from the sun. It's a light moisturiser with sunscreen SPF 15 - it's sensational for sensitive skin, it's non-greasy and it won't congest your pores!
You may think if the SPF is ‘higher’ then your sun protection will equivalently rise too. However that isn’t the case. While an SPF 15 will block around 93 percent of UVB rays, doubling the SPF to 30 will block 97 percent. That’s just a 4 percent increase – for what would appear to be double the dose.
For ‘higher’ SPFs, those of SPF 50 and more, there is only a one percent increase, never enough to reach 100 percent. Dermatologists say there is no real difference between using an SPF 15 or 30 and using SPF 50 or greater.
SPF levels are also a gauge of how long it takes to become sunburned compared to how long it takes to burn without wearing sunscreen. If you generally take 20 minutes to burn, an SPF 15 should allow you to go 300 minutes before burning. However it is not all recommended nor is it safe to go 300 minutes in the sun before putting on more sunscreen. Ever.
- Apply liberally 15 minutes or more prior to sun exposure and reapply every 2 hours or sooner if swimming.
- Avoid sun exposure between 11am and 2pm. Always wear a hat, effective sunglasses and protective clothing where possible.
- Apply again after swimming.
- Perfect for even the most sensitive skin.
- Safe to apply to infants and young children. Avoid applying to children under 2 years of age. Keep very young children out of strong sunlight.
This sunscreen is th Review by Felicity Plunkett
This sunscreen is the first I've used that is not irritating to my skin or eyes in one way or another, and it has a wonderful texture that allows me to apply makeup without its sliding off. Since we ingest the chemicals we put on our skin, it makes a lot of sense to me to avoid them, yet sometimes a sunscreen is important, too. I highly recommend this one.
Another star product Review by Jo Phillips
Another star product from Simplicite! I have very reactive and sensitive skin, no sunscreens seemed to work for my face for every day protection. This gorgeous lotion applies more as a cream, absorbs quickly without leaving a white sheen. It has a light scent which disappears quickly and has never caused me any irritation even though I use it all around my eyes. It feels like I am just putting on a nice moisturiser and it is so pleasant and effective I use it everyday as the final step in my skin care regime. My kids are also happy to put it on their faces everyday without complaint! This is definietly my HG facial sunscreen.
The down side is cost in comparison to other sunscreens however a little goes a long way. In my view the formula is also without comparison and I believe it is well worth the money. For beach use it does need to be reapplied after swimming as per the directions. None of the family has burnt since we began using this product at the start of the summer.
