As a lifelong fan of Neutrogena, when I decided to venture out of my comfort zone and try a new sunscreen, I valiantly picked up a 110ml tube of Cancer Council Everyday Sunscreen. Small tubes are also available.
One of the best features of the Cancer Council sunscreen is the fact that this product is made in Australia. This lotion is very light and non-greasy and can be easily squeezed out of the tube. A small dollop is adequate to cover the entire face. A white dollop can be gently rubbed into the skin in clockwise and anti-clockwise motions. The lotion is smoothly absorbed into the skin leaving behind radiant and supple skin without any residue white marks on the skin. Quite moisturising, this sunscreen does not dehydrate the skin and therefore does not require the application of a moisturiser before the sunscreen is rubbed into the skin.
The sunscreen tube is emblazoned with a declaration that the sunscreen is SPF30 and UVA and UVB resistant. A beautiful yellow daffodil marks the back of the tube, a symbol of hope for a better future. The instructions on the back of the tube states that the sunscreen should be applied liberally and evenly to dry skin atleast 15 to 20 minutes before venturing outside into the sun. One teaspoon of the sunscreen should be applied to each arm, leg, front of body, back of body as well as face, neck and ears. This sunscreen resists water for two hours. Cancer council recommends application of the sunscreen every two hours.
If you have sensitive skin, test a small dollop of the sunscreen on a small area of your skin to test for irritation. Discontinue use if rash or skin irritation occurs. In cases of serious rashes, seek medical assistance. The storage instruction dictates storing the product below 30 degrees. This sunscreen is suitable for the whole family.
Another excellent aspect is that the sales of this product help in serving philanthropic causes like funding cancer research, patient support and education. So when you buy this product you also contribute towards a benevolent cause.
Valued at $11-$15 for 110 ml, Cancer Council Everyday Sunscreen is available in two colours.
