"My protection."

I am really careful when it comes to being out in the sun and always ensure my children use high factor sunscreen. I usually buy a spray especially formulated for children with the downside being that these sprays can leave marks on clothing. On the other hand I like to use Ambre solaires clear protect spray for me as it doesn’t leave any marks either on my skin or clothing.

Ambre Solaire makes a range of sun protection products for all types of skin needs. The clear protect spray comes in several SPF levels and I opted for the highest available 30. It is designed for fair skin that is already tanned. My skin is quite fair and I am prone to burn if I am not careful.

The spay comes in a white plastic bottle with a clear strip down each side to enable you to see at a glance how much of the product is left. The spray nozzle is protected from dirt with a pull off plastic cap. The information on the bottle claims that this spray will leave no white marks, something that really appeals to me! It contains nutriflavones and vitamin E, both of which help to keep skin moisturised. This spray is also very water resistant according to the bottle.

I prefer to use a spray whenever possible as I find it makes reaching areas such as my back easier. The spray nozzle on this bottle works well and I had no problem getting it to spray even when the contents were getting low. It can also be sprayed at any angle .

The spray itself is not actually clear but a pale orange colour. It is difficult to see once it has been applied and does appear clear. It has a pleasant enough scent although is not as noticeable as other Ambre Solaire products I have used. The spray is really light with no sticky or greasy feel. It is quickly and easily absorbed and as promised, doesn’t leave any marks on my skin. I tend to reapply the spray every few hours and always after swimming.

I have several t-shirts that still bear the stains of sunscreen use from previous summers. However true to its claims this spray has not left any white marks on my clothing. This is a huge plus for me.

The most important element in using sunscreen is how well it protects you from the harmful effects of the sun. I took this spray to Australia and Singapore last year where the sun was very strong. I am please to say that it gave me excellent protection and I managed to avoid any sun burn. I have also been using it on the few hot and sunny days we have enjoyed this summer and it has protected me as promised. I did manage to turn a little too pink last week end but that was my fault for forgetting to reapply!

This spray is widely available and is on a half price offer in Tesco at £7 for a 200ml bottle.

    The clever comment here has to be "protection from WHAT"? If course for those travelling abroad, where there's a better chance of seeing the suin this it is, ours travelled with us and remained, well, unopened - NO SUN! R.
