Very High Protection
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and represents the sunscreen’s ability to protect your skin from the sun’s rays in addition to your skin’s natural protection. Depending on your skin type, hair colour, eye colour and location, you may be able to stay in the sun for 10 minutes without burning.
If you apply a sunscreen with SPF30 this means that you can stay in the sun 30 times longer than you could without sunscreen. However, you must use sunscreen as directed and ensure enough sunscreen is initially applied (35ml) for maximum coverage. Higher factors should not be used to increase your time in the sun, but to increase your level of protection.
Yes, sunscreen is still required. Even when the sky is overcast, UV radiation levels are still at 80% of their normal levels. The temperature can be deceptive - a breeze can keep you cool, but it doesn’t affect UV levels. Look up the UV index for your area to make sure you’re using protection when you need to be.
According to Cancer Research UK, this is not true. They claim: ’Cost is no indication of better protection. You may simply be paying for a brand name. All types are tested and the cheaper brands are just as effective if used properly.’ Calypso Press and Protect Sun Lotion SPF30 was found to be one of the cheapest and most effective sun creams and was chosen by Which? as its “Best Buy Sunscreen” for 2014 and 2015.

I am a freckly type and this provides effective block but doesn't make me look like I've got a sweat on! I've used it for some years and have only ever been able to buy it online. Cheap too and it smells nice. Yes - I would recommend this to a friend
