Following on from my post on SPF, here i will now review two facial sun creams by two supermarket giants. First up is Tesco Ultimate Sun protection( Its written like a stamp, Ultimate in bold, just to show you how really ultimate it is! READ IT AND WEEP)
SPF 30 High protection.

For some messed up reason Tesco decided to reformulate this product, from an easy squeezy container to a “Sports pack” umm ok. They also changed the ingredients( insert pissed off smilie here)

It is £3.00 for 75 ml which i think is a great price. So lets get to reviewing my lovelys

I love the price, its readily available and it doesn’t have a white cast leaving you looking like you bathed in baby powder that so many sunscreens do.
It has a pleasant smell, not too clinical and its not greasy and absorbs well. You can use it in place of a moisturiser and no dryness.
What i dislike– the packaging, its now in a weird sports pack that looks like an astronauts space food container or a massive packet of a male contaceptive device.
They also changed the ingredients- wahh and put in more stuff that i can’t pronounce.

Baring that all in mind i give it 2 Thumbs up and it is a staple of mine.

I heart it *strokes space food/condom pack*
