A $15 sunscreen offering the highest level of protection is fast becoming a summer essential across Australia.
Bondi Sands, an Australian brand known globally for its range of tanning products, has just released a new lotion that’s ideal for wearing under makeup.

The product, which comes in a 75mL tube, is sold at Priceline and The Chemist Warehouse and Coles supermarkets.

The purse-friendly lotion comes laden with skin-nourishing aloe vera as well as vitamin E.
On top of this, it’s paraben and sulfate-free and promises to deliver four hours of water-resistant coverage.
The scent-free formula also offers UVA and UVB protection.
Exposure from UV radiation (ultraviolet), the sun’s natural radiation, can create damage ranging from ageing to skin cancer.

Additionally, Bondi Sands says its suncare range is formulated without oxybenzone and octinoxate, chemicals which are believed to cause coral bleaching.
To celebrate the launch, Australian model Steph Claire Smith recently partnered with the brand.
According to a report by News.com.au, Steph previously admitted she’d used brand’s sunscreen oils – all of which have an SPF30.
Top tips for using SPF
- Put sunscreen on clean, dry skin 15 to 30 minutes before you go out in the sun to allow it time to interact with your skin. Re-apply it just before you go out – you’ll increase the amount applied and be more likely to get the stated SPF benefit.
- Cover all parts of the body not protected by clothing (don’t forget your ears, the back of your neck, the backs of your hands and the tops of your feet).
- Apply it evenly, and don’t rub it in excessively – most sunscreens will absorb into the outer layer of skin and don’t need to be rubbed in vigorously.
- Re-apply at least once every two hours and after swimming or exercise.
- Think beyond the beach and pool – use sunscreen whenever you go outdoors for a significant amount of time, such as to the park, a lunchtime walk to the shops, playing sports or gardening.
- Store your sunscreen at a temperature of less than 30 degrees Celsius. If you leave it in the glovebox of your car or in the sun, it may lose its effectiveness. Keep it in the esky with the drinks, in the shade or wrapped in a towel.
- Don’t use sunscreens that have passed their expiry date as they may have lost their effectiveness.
