I would like any recommendations of sunscreen that people use that they know does what it says on the bottle. I try and cover up as much as possible and wear a hat (bald) where I can but sometimes I like to get at least a little sun. I also do a little boating.


I know there has been some media recently around the rated warning on the bottles that are not doing what they are supposed to so thought I would ask what people are using.

I have just moved to fruit of the earth - block up - sport SPF50

Two weeks ago I went fishing and applied sunscreen around 8am, my watch was annoying me so I removed it around 10am, I did not re-apply and was fine everywhere bar my watch strap.

IIRC Consumer recommended the Smart365 lotion from thewarehouse. Cheap too.

Have used Cancer Society and it's fine. From memory the higher SPF+ versions don't quite match what they say on the container (according to Consumer here) but at 30 or 50+ it's not a worry.
