It's obviously a good price for the product.

Please make sure you consider whether SPF15 is suitable. Also make sure any product you use is 5* (UVA). This is 5*. However a 5* UVA on an SPF 50 product is a far better 5* than a 5* rating on a SPF 15 product.

I would argue this product (SPF 15) should be banned in the U.K. as it falsely reassures the Public that SPF 15 is adequate. It's better than nothing, but it gives low (or arguably the lowest possible 'medium') protection.

We raise taxes on smoking, but we don't ban stuff like this, when we can reduce skin cancer rates by banning SPF15

This is the best cream iv used in years hope it’s this price in my local
Only problem with aldi (and lidl) is that they only have stock in once a year so once it's gone it's gone. it's £1.79 full price if I remember correctly (I bought all mine back in April)
Great product. Such a sensible price. Quite shocking how much some companies charge for a similar product.

in your opinion!

Yes, my opinion it should be banned.
The British Dermatology Association advise to only use SPF 30 or above for that reason though. I've made my point and fair enough if you want to go against their advice; at least everyone can make their own informed decision regarding the suitability of SPF 15 suncream. You have to be pretty skint to risk the extra ultraviolet radiation that SPF 15 guarantees instead of at least SPF 30.

The spray version ruins white tees, hopefully the lotion doesn’t do the same.
No idea what this is like but the spray stuff is vile
tend to agree anything below 30spf is just a bit pointless
Poundland for a pound sell 100ml tubes but sometimes run out

Well it's obviously depends how long you're in the sun rather than just the factor of protection
Sun in Uk is so rare like rain on desert;)
Whilst not disagreeing with the experts, it's worth remembering that a higher SPF does not necessarily give more protection, it protects for longer. If a lower SPF cream is used then more frequent application is required.
Great sin cream this. I work outdoors for 8 hours and use this and it protects me all day. Im pale skin too. Cant fault it.

Completely wrong. All sunscreams, no matter the SPF, ideally should be reapplied every few hours. Higher SPF means... more protection. Also, research shows people are not particularly good at applying a good/even layer of sunscreen, which halves the effectiveness of the SPF. So... if you're wearing SPF 30, your actual protection is 15 and etc. SPF 15 is not an adequate/sufficient amount of protection to prevent sun damage.

Used to use factor 15 here in garden and factor 30 abroad but now it's 30 here and had to buy factor 50 whilst in Turkey in April as 30 wasn't adequate I felt I never burn, keep re-applying and know when enough is enough.if I do happen to run out of Aldi suncream I buy ambre solaire from home bargains

Dear annoyed, it was not my intention to mislead or cause harm to anybody, but the problem is the number of sources available to check.

I'm pretty sure nobody would accept an unintentional comment on HUKD as a valid medical opinion.
