Delph Sun Lotion SPF50

Reviewing this has been tricky for two reasons; firstly I'm no expert on the technicalities of suncream and secondly this bloody English summer which seems to have arrived early in May and then dwindled to humid grey.

Delph Sun Lotion SPF50Still 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.
