The Suncream To Avoid
Last year, we told you about the Which? study on Sun Creams. There were two that were found to be inadequate for sun protection. One of them was an absolute shocker - Boots Soltan Protect and Moisturise SPF 30. I am glad to say that this year it passed, and we can only assume that Boots took note of Which's findings and improved the formula.
You can read last year's findings here.
Unfortunately, there is one Sun Cream that has made the Which? 'Don't Buy' list for the third year running, and that's the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Protective Sun Lotion SPF 30 180ml*.
Which? have found that this Hawaiian Tropic Sun Cream provided significantly less protection than claimed. This Cream is obviously tested before it hits the shelves to international standard, however, Which? reckon you are putting your skin at risk of burning when you use it.
Check out these three top scoring (according to Which?) Sun Creams, all under £5: Aldi's Lacura Suncare Moisturising Sun Spray SPF30* £2.79, Tesco Soleil Light Sun Lotion SPF30 200ml* only £3.50 and Morrisons M Sun Care Protect & Nourish Sun Spray SPF30* on special offer at £3.21 (normally £3.50).
