How had I lived without this for so long?!

Ultrasun - SPF 30 face
Here in Belfast we've had the most fantastically gorgeous weather over the last while and it got me thinking about SPF. When the sun is out I've always applied plenty of sun cream with a high SPF (even as a teenager it beat listening to my dads nagging) It was only when I read that the incidents of skin cancer in the UK each year currently exceed those of lung, prostrate, colon and breast combined that I started applying an SPF to my face and neck every single day.
The only one that's really worked for me is Ultrasun. This stuff is genius! It only needs to be applied once a day and gives 8 hours protection. That one little thing was reason enough for me to buy a bottle but there are soooo many other things that make this better than normal sun cream;

The texture is fantastic and blends easily (yep, even the high SPFs)
It's moisturising so can be used in place of a regular moisturiser
Protects against UVB (the rays that burn) and UVA (the rays that age the skin)
Fragrance free
The face version includes anti-aging ingredients
Once opened the products can be used for 3 years - most other brands can only be used for 12 months after opening
Absorbed quickly so you aren't left with a horrid greasy residue
Even though I have acne prone skin this hasn't caused any breakouts

At first glance Ultrasun seems quite expensive but when you consider that this is only applied once every day instead of once every couple of hours each bottle lasts ages. As soon as I discovered the brand I was like How have I not heard of this before?!? I mean why on earth have we all been faffing about with a regular sun cream when this is available?!

I have received a sample of this, and i also like it. I like the fact it's not greasy, so I use it for my face!

I saw it a few times in TK Maxx, it could be a good ide to stock up if you se them as well :)

Ms Bubu I spotted it in TK Maxx last week but the queue was MASSIVE so I didn't bother getting it. Kinda regret it now cos I called in to get a few bottles today and there were none left :(

I've seen it in TKMaxx too. Also on QVC.
Iget soooo hot that my faces just looks like a bucket of water's been thrown over me(!) and anything I've put on my face tends to get wiped off!! Sadly, I tend to just give up.
