Below, we’ve rounded up some of our summer sun cream recommendations, so whether you’re off on a summer holiday, or you just want to stay protected at home, read on to find out which product you should buy.
Tropic Skincare Sun Safe Body Sunscreen
If you want to treat your body during your summer getaway, the Tropic Skincare Sun Safe Body Sunscreen is a great solution. This water-resistant cream is enriched with a soothing cottonseed extract, argan oil and vitamin E, which means your skin is not only protected against UVA and UVB damage, but it’s also hydrated, nourished and soft.
Ambre Solaire Face Protect
When it comes to summer skincare, Ambre Solaire is a brand you can trust. With a non-greasy, light formula, the Face Protect SPF30 sun cream is great for the whole family. This cream is easy to blend, and won’t leave you with white patches, and is great for anybody on a budget who wants to protect their face on holiday or at home during the summer months.
Sisley Sunleÿa Age Minimizing Global Suncare
This cream provides UVA-UVB protection, and has age-minimizing ingredients to help fight against wrinkles, brown spots, loss of firmness and general skin damage, so is a great choice for anybody who wants to stay young. However, starting at over £100 for just 50ml, this cream is definitely a more luxurious choice for those with a bigger budget.

This P20 cream is a perfect solution for an on-the-go lifestyle because each application lasts up to ten hours.

Calypso Sun Protection All School Day Long
If you need a lighter sun cream solution for your kids, we recommend using the Calypso Sun Protection Cream, which offers day-long SPF40 protection. Although we wouldn’t recommend applying sun cream just once per day in usual settings, this product is great during school term time when you want to ensure your childrenare protectedfrom the sun during their lunch breaks and sports classes.

With a new formula, MALIBU’s Protective Lotion is a great solution for the whole family and offers SPF30 protection.
