I thought as long as it was left unopened it was ok - once opened it has a 3 year lifespan?

there's no real use-by date, opened or not - it does get slightly less protective over time, and opening the pack & exposing the top to more air will possibly speed up the degradation

but you can safely use it 5 or 10 years after opening, just monitor its effectiveness and re-apply more frequently as needed

anybody who says differently is either talking out of their backside or else has a vested interest in getting people to throw away perfectly usable sun cream

A vested interest? Such as what? Owning L'Oreal shares by stating what is actually correct? You even contradict yourself in your statement!

put it this way if you want a layman's explanation: SPF 50 today will still be SPF 45 in 10 years' time

So now you are speculating with a non-scientific answer. Congratulations!
As sunscreen ages (or is exposed to too much heat and moisture), its other ingredients degrade and interact with one another, leading them to lose some of their sun-blocking properties, Imanidis said.

"[But] after all this, the sunscreen does not completely lose its properties," he said. "It may lose its potency to some extent, but it's still a sunscreen."

For example, a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 55 might age into a sunscreen with a 40 or 30 SPF over time, Imanidis said. The SPF number refers to how long a person can stay in the sun without getting sunburned. If a person normally gets sunburned in 10 minutes, then with SPF 30, they can stay out 30 times as long, or 300 minutes (5 hours).

I think I seen this for only £3.99 in Savers.

Also Which? recommended the SPF30 of this as a good buy.
