Sunsense Sun Protection Ultra SPF50+, 500ml
Great for the kids
I use this on the children and they only need one application - so great for sunny school days and trips. If on holiday they'd need an extra application especially if in and out of the water, but generally good, soaks in quickly, isn't sticky and doesn't leave white residue.
I also use it myself, I'm fair skinned and again generally one application is fine. I give it 4* rather than 5 because when using on my face it is quite greasy.
Would buy again.

Best suncream I have ever used
My family and I used this whilst on holiday in Abu Dhabi and we all really liked it. It feels like silk to put on and sinks into your skin really quickly. No horrible white residue but you could tell it was providing protection as water formed small beads on the skin indicating an invisible layer of protection. Even my kids put it on without too much complaining! None of us burnt the whole time we were there. I've tried many other products in my time (cheap and expensive) and will only use this brand in future.

Great family buy.
My young children are frequently allergic to creams and I was reluctant to pay the higher price for such a large bottle in case this was the case again. I need not have worried. It soaked in without rubbing and didn't leave a white sheen on the skin. We didn't have to reapply as frequently as with other creams and it didn't leave you feeling sticky. The only downside was the pump action made it hard to pack between flights or on the way to the beach as it kept coming back up with half a twist. We would certainly spend the extra and get this again next time as it survived our round the world trip and offered great protection even in Australian sunshine.

It really works
I used this and Sunsense's Sun Factor 50 for Face while in California, and both products worked brilliantly. I swam in the sea and spent some hours on the beach and didn't get burned at all.

Fantastic family sunscreen
I purchase sunsense after lots of research. We were travelling to Egypt with our two children, one of which is a very fair red head. It absolutely lived up to expectations.
The children spent all day in the water. I would apply on the morning, then after lunch, once they had dried out and again in the afternoon. They never burned and they were very happy not to be dragged out of the water to have sunscreen applied every hour. A lot of children were burning as it was intensely hot, despite the once an hour applications. This is also a light cream that absorbs easily, unlike most high factor lotions.
My only gripe was the design of the bottle, the pump dispenser would not stay locked, so it was difficult to transport down to the pool or the beach and obviously its large and heavy. It would be nice if sunsense did a mid size say 300ml. As 150ml is not enough but 500ml is a little too much. But if you are looking a fantastic sunscreen that actually works you can’t go wrong with this product.

My children always complain about the stickiness of suncreams and hates putting it on but they didn't seem to complain about this one when we were on holiday this year..
