Highly recommended by staff member Emma who says "This sunblock is the best I have ever tried. It is different to other sunscreens because it has no water in it so it doesn't evaporate. Skinnies lasts and lasts (tests have proved it protects your skin for up to 2 hours in the water!) Last weekend I went to a beach wedding and my pale skin, protected by Skinnies, survived hours in the hot sun without any shade. Amazing."
Most sunscreens contain 50-70% water, so they take 20 minutes to dry (while the water evaporates), and when you sweat or swim the sunblock washes off, which is why you need to reapply every 2 hours. Not with Skinnies! Skinnies dries in 2 minutes, isn’t greasy or white and you only need to apply a small amount for super long lasting protection (we use it once a day but you have to make your own mind up on this!) so it is quick drying and long lasting.
It is SP30 - even after 80 minutes in the water.
A little goes a long way. A pea size blob is all you need for your face, neck & ears for instant long lasting UV protection. It isn't white (and it doesn't get stuck in facial hair)
It doesn't contain parabens or preservatives.
Skinnies is great winter sun protection up the mountain and the best product on the slopes as it contains no water so it doesn't freeze
And it is made in New Zealand.
Comes in a handy small tube of 35mls or a longlasting 100ml tube - which is the equivalent of a 600ml tube of normal sunscreen or the BIG grandaddy tube that'll be good for the whole family, all year long.
