Why do I need to use a sunscreen?

Sunscreen is the best anti-aging product that exists, as it has the ability to prevent and protect against major signs of premature ageing. UV exposure is one of the most significant ageing factors that is under your control. The effects of the sun are powerful and range from sunburn to collagen breakdown, and scarily can even lead to skin cancer. Although you may only feel that it is important to use sunscreen when you’re on holiday, it's also crucial to include this step in your daily skincare routine. Whether you’re in the office, picking up the kids from school or going for your daily walk, by integrating a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily into your routine, you can enjoy youthful-looking skin for many more years to come.


What causes sunburn and sun damage?

The UV light that reaches your skin daily consists of both UVA and UVB rays. UVB light is strongest during the summer and is the primary cause of sunburn. UVA light is consistent all year round, penetrates deeply, and causes damage without sunburn. Integrating a high-SPF sunscreen that advertises broad-spectrum protection, UVA protection, or a PA+ rating will safeguard your skin with daily use.


What’s the difference between a Physical and Chemical sunscreen?

You’re not the only one that’s confused when it comes to physical and chemical sunscreens. Let us break it down for you. A physical sunscreen, as its name suggests, creates a physical barrier between the sun and your vulnerable skin. Physical sunscreen formulas remain on the surface of your skin and do not absorb. However, a chemical sunscreen does the exact opposite and penetrates skin and is absorbed by the deeper layers of your skin. Chemical sunscreens soak up the damaging rays, like a sponge, to prevent them doing any damage.

One of the better SPF's

The main thing I like about this is that it has not broken out my acne-prone skin. I don't mind this sunscreen in terms of the feel of it but apply at least 15 mins before you put makeup over it to let it sink in properly.

Great

Great facial sunscreen. My skin tends to break out using normal sunscreen but I have never had that problem with this product. Feels so light and works well.

Perfect

First time user of the brand and absolutely hooked. The hydrating serum formulation and pipette make it feel luxurious on the skin. Its so lightweight you don't even know you're wearing a sunscreen, let alone a SPF50. Doesn't feel tacky on your skin and is a lovely base for makeup. Very excited to try the others in the range to compare the different formulations. Hope the clever ladies behind this brand release some body sunscreens too because I wold have no issues lathering up my body everyday if its as silky smooth as the Queen Screen!

Only criticism I have is that its sort of hard to get a lot of product into the pipette and you did to do a few squeezes to get enough out to cover your face and decolletage, other than that I highly recommend and will be buying again and again.

LOVE IT!

I am a sunscreen fiend and this is by far one of my favourite products. It is so light and smells much nicer than other face sunscreens I have used. I don't wear a lot of makeup and tend to be on the drier side when it comes to skin types and this gives my skin a really nice dewy finish, which I LOVE.
