Given that airports require liquids to be in 100ml bottles, it never ceases to annoy me that the standard size for bottles of suntan lotion in the UK is 200ml
The kids version that is SPF50 is £4.49 also in the buy one get one half price. superdrug.com/Sol…034

SPF50 block 98% of UVB rays while SPF30 blocks 97% of them. SPF15 block 93%.

Add to this fact that SPF50 will be much more greasy and less spreadable than SPF30. It's more important to focus on regular reapplication than worrying about this 1%. You should reapply sunscreen every 2 hours of direct sun exposure to ensure advertised protection.

who travels without registered luggage without these limitations? Do you fit all your belongings in a cabine luggage?


I have found the kids version more suitable for their sensitive skin.

Well then there must be something more to it. I wish they listed the ingridients of their products on the website as any respectable seller should. I would like to check it for alcohol content as there is often bunch of it in the cheap stuff and it isn't any good for your skin, especially if you have a sensitive type.

I ordered 2 of these anyway as they can be used on less sensitive areas of the body and they offer very good UVA protection for the price. Wouldn't put them near my face or neck area though.

Superdrug website crashing can't order
used this before and no issues. and if your only taking hand luggage on the plane then why don't you order and collect from the post customs airport store (assuming Superdrug have one ). we did this with baby formula at boots and it's cleared to carry on the plane

Not quite how maths works,

Instead of thinking of it as 97% and 98%. Think of it like this; SPF30 lets in 3% of UV, and SPF50 lets in 2% of UV. It is only the difference between those two numbers that matters here.

(2/3)*100~=67% SPF50 blocks out 67% more UV than SPF30 does.

To convert that into a usable unit, it means if it takes you 2 hours to burn with SPF30, it would take you 3 hours to experience the same amount of UV with SFP50, all else being equal.
Its actually £4.50 on its own so adding 2 to the basket - half price is £6.73 still...

The "same ammount" being neglectable. You sure twisted it to fit for your purpose. Why don't you go for SPF100 then if it block twice as much as SPF50? Wouldn't it be better?

SPF30 slows down burning by 30 times so 1 hour in the sun without protection = 2 minutes with the sunscreen
SPF50 slows down burning by 50 times so 1 hour in the sun without protection = 1 minute and 12 seconds with the sunscreen
SPF100 slows down burning by 100 times so 1 hour in the sun without protection = 36 seconds with the sunscreen

As I said you should reapply every two hours so just think if 4 minutes of sun exposure (spread over 2 hours) after which you should reapply are going to make any difference at all.

The ammount you apply and reapplying is far more important than the SPF factor. SPF50 might be better for people that don't follow these guidelines but people that do will be better off even with SPF15.

"Higher SPF values offer some safety margin, since consumers generally do not apply enough sunscreen. To evaluate SPFs, testers apply two milligrams of sunscreen per square centimeter of skin. But in everyday life, most people apply from only 0.5 to one milligram per square centimeter of skin. Consequently, the actual SPF they achieve is approximately 1/3 of the labeled value."

Oh and btw I noticed since moving to the UK that there are "once a day" sunscreens here. They are simply false advertising and you have to reapply them just as often but people still fall for it. That's a shame.
Used Morrisons own this year in Cyprus... still there now... £3 a bottle... great stuff and 5* UVA too... amazes me why people waste money on Nivea and Piz etc..
Prices have hopped up to £4.49 overnight apparently?
