Still on those hot days I dowsed myself in this Sunblock Lotion from Delph and that's what I'm basing this review on. To wear SPF under make-up with SPF in it or not? Sometimes doubling up can actually reduce the amount of protection you have and sometimes it doesn't. I tend to risk it when the make-up has a low SPF as I usually use Clarins Anti-Wrinkle SPF30 in the mornings. But when the sun is properly out I want something more on my face. I can see the damage to my skin from too much sunbathing when I was younger and now I want to keep the damage and wrinkles at bay.
I've been using the Delph SPF50 on my face under make-up and my exposed bits of body - meaning mostly my decolletage. I can confirm that these bits have not changed colour at all when I've remembered to use this - but have noticably browned/reddened in the sun when I've forgotten to apply it. Used under make-up I had no problem with application afterwards - no peeling or blending problems and I've even patted it very gently over the top of my make-up and then powdered when I've realised I've got no protection on my face on a rare sunny day.
Not greasy, waterproof and does the job at an incredibly reasonable price.
