That was over 2 years ago. Pretty sure they have changed their products by now.

Not for me as I'm a brand snob where sun protection is concerned ( Nivea or Ambre Solaire). Good price for those who are not thou so heat added

I was the exact same but never considered the star rating - worth a read http://www.manchestereveningnews.co.uk/whats-on/family-kids-news/sun-cream-warning-factor-uv-13216139

We've used Nivea for years as a family, switched to Soltan for a trip to Spain last week. Super stuff - goes on without the residual greasiness of Nivea and did it's job protecting us. My wife's super picky when it comes to sun cream and she's a convert.
#13
Wife won't touch anything but Soltan screen. SPF50 in Egypt for 3 weeks never had an issue. Pity to see there doesn't seem to be any offers on it this year though. It's normally at least buy 1 get one half price. Going to be a costly one this year.

I used to be but when buying for my little boy noticed that both Nivea and Ambre Solaire are only three star even on their factor 50!
#15
Looks good. Do these suncream fit for kids ?
#16
most big brand names which are like £8+ only seem to be 3 or 4 star UVA as where quite a lot of own brands are 5 star and a lot cheaper it's not all about the name and the factor you need to be looking at the UVA star rating especially if your buying it for children.

most nivea are only 4 star UVA so not that great for the price you pay
#18
Good price but isn't the 'Once' suncream less hassle to have to keep putting on? Obv reapply if going in water etc but at least not every 2hrs........
#19
That's pretty worrying. Mum had skin cancer. It was removed but she was told never to go in to full sun without protection. I got the boots stuff due to SPF, 5 star UV, and lasting several hours. Anyone know if it was one soltan product that failed or all those tested?

I stopped using it a few years back as I found it just didn't work as well as Nivea. Was getting burned through it / wasn't lasting. Seems a false economy to me, and you can get offers on the branded stuff if you keep a look out.

if the report is true then the 30SPF was reduced to 20SPF

20SPF re-applied several times every couple of hours (as recommended on the bottle) would still give excellent protection in most situations

perhaps not on Mars

I have sat in many dermatology clinics.

SPF 30 is the minimum you should be using (Or - if you don't care about yourself, the minimum you should be using on your children).
I would recommend SPF 50 though, especially in the 'heatwave' days or mainland Europe.

It's also worth remembering 3* UVA at SPF 50 has more UVA protection than a 5* UVA at SPF 20.

To be honest, any SPF below 30 should be banned from the high street as it is falsely reassuring.

That's because Boots invented the rating system... they would struggle not to be 5* :D

that's just silly

SPF 20 gives fantastic protection

it all depends on the situation

perhaps somebody is just going to have a few drinks in the full European sun for (say) 3 hrs

SPF 20 applied once then again 2 hrs later will give perfect protection

Well the above link is to a 2015 article. I found a more recent one here that found an Avon product to fail. Further of a worry is this from the same article "In 2016, Which? tested four ‘once a day’ sunscreens to see whether they’d really keep you protected all day long. We found that none of them were up to the job – the average drop in SPF after 6-8 hours was 74% – that’s the equivalent of an SPF30 product dropping down to just SPF8. If you use a ‘once a day’ sun cream, you should reapply it regularly, as with any other sunscreen." The Soltan I'd been buying was also a supposedly (!) long lasting cream. Phfff. I can only hope things will be OK. Mum avoids the sun when she can and apart from making sure she has her blummin Soltan cream on, I try to get her to wear a hat too. Still not good reading knowing how inportant this can be and the false claims the manufacturers are making.

you'd have to be a bit thick to think an 'apply once per day' suntan protection cream would work well if only applied once

of course: all SPF creams need to be re-applied regularly, whatever the claims on the tube

I'm trying to hunt down research articles with evidence, but this is from - arguably - a world-renowned dermatologist:

http://www.skincancer.org/skin-cancer-information/ask-the-experts/does-a-higher-spf-sunscreen-always-protect-your-skin-better

(Summary: "The importance of using both UVB and UVA protection cannot be emphasized enough. For patients who really wish to know “how high should I go?” I suggest products with SPFs no lower than 30 and no higher than 50")

it all depends how long you are going to expose your skin to the sun, and the strength of the sun

both factors you seem to ignore

But you also ignore the fact that most people only own one bottle of suncream. Most of the country don't have a cupboard full of SPF 15, SPF 30 and SPF 50 - and able to decide (correctly) which is suitable. Most people will own one bottle and use one strength. You should not stock your cupboard with SPF 15/20. Of course you might have a range of suncreams and be able to choose correctly, most people won't.

SPF 50 won't do any harm. SPF 15 will in the wrong situation. Just buy SPF 50.

we've got about 50 different bottles of suncream :)
#34
Any proof of that, or did you just make that up like 95% of stats? I'd rather bet the average household has multiple bottles of the stuff.

If I'm popping out for 30 mins and I want not to burn, a Factor 10 would only be the equivalent of 3 mins without any protection. An hour in the midday sun with a Factor 15 is only the equivalent of 4 mins without. It's all about coverage and timing.

A minimum of Factor 30 is overkill and more importantly not needed.
#35
Boots dont sell fresh suncream, It has 12 month shelf life if you look at back of packaging, they pack it up send it back to Warehouse for storage, then gets sent back for following summer. god knows what age the bottles are

12 months from day of opening.

Try Ultrasun on QVC. More expensive, but, much better & you only apply ONCE a day, doesn't matter how many times you're in & out of the water. Plus, most other sunscreens are off by the following ur NOT, with Ultrasun. Honestly, it really is worth every penny. You spend all that good money on a fab holiday, but, then, scrimp on your Sun Protection. You won't regret it. The only regret you will have is WHY DIDN'T I TRY THIS YEARS AGO. Enjoy your hols!! X

Check out ULTRASUN. They have all the evidence & information you could wish for. The MD IS ABI CLEEVE. She's lovely & you can also find her on QVC!! Ultrasun Spf Sun Creams all the way. They do soooooo many different ones too. X

Nivea kids suncream made my daughter come out in a really bad rash, it's something in it that makes it waterproof that has a bad reaction with some children, Aldi suncream for kids was fine and a 1/3 of the price of nivea.

It depends what you prefer. I used a Soltan Once a few years back, and it was very heavy with an almost grease-like consistency.
I did activities and was sweating a lot. It wasn't a nice feeling having that stuff on my face. I prefer to reapply a lighter sunscreen every few hours.
