UV A = Star Rating
UV B = Factor 50

You want a High Factor with a High Star Rating - thereby protecting against UVA and UVB Sun Damage.
UVA prematurely ages the skin.
UVB can cause skin cancer.

You should (IMHO) go for top protection if you can afford it (Factor 40 or 50 - with a 5* Rating). Factor 30 at a minimum.
Factor 30 with a 5* UVA Rating will have worse UVA protection than Factor 50 with a 4* Star Rating (the Stars is worked out as a ratio of the UVA to UVB protection).

Thanks. Had no idea there was a star rating. Though until this year, I've never actually bought the stuff!

I'm curious, do you know what this would be?

I just googled and found it. No mention of star rating though, but does mention both A and B...?

Only 3 Stars - in the Product Description on the Superdrug page.
However looking at the back of the bottle on the Photo on the Superdrug page, it does have 4 Stars there.

Very unhelpful by Nivea to be honest... In store you should be able to find it on all the suncream bottles on the back

If it's 5 Stars, it's usually pretty prominent as it's an objective way of measuring protection (and companies will want to show off if they have 5 star protection) as opposed to the very subjective by Nivea: Immediate protection from UV rays.Enhanced UVA/UVB filter system. Marketing BS stuff

Thanks. Looks like Superdrug branded stuff has 50+ and 5 stars and isn't too pricey, so guessing that's a good bet?

Any idea if kids stuff is suitable for adults too, or if it's just another marketing thing to get you to buy both?

Exactly the same - use the kids stuff for yourself too. If anything, children's products undergo more rigorous testing and so are safer. Plus it'll encourage your children if you are all sharing the same thing Only things to be aware of is not to buy shipped directly from China (as if you would, but anyway...) buy from a UK retailer as it'll have passed EU testing verifying their claims. The other thing to be aware of is that different products will have different levels of 'greasiness' / 'whiteness' / 'transparency' and also different rules about applying whilst in water ('Water Resistant') although they usually say to re-apply the cream immediately after leaving the water anyway.

I'd be more than happy to use Superdrug own stuff.

Good to know, thanks for the help. I'll have to test some for greasiness and whiteness then I guess!

And assuming your username is based on the TV series - excellent taste
None left in Durham - they only had 6 apparently
