Parasol 10 + From £16.19
Parasol 10 is a unique silicone based lotion specially formulated for skin that tans easily. Thanks to its extreme durability to water and perspiration, it is ideal for use when swimming.
Parasol UVA/UVB filters provide 10 times more natural protection against UVB rays as well as helping to protect against sunburn and long term UVA induced skin damage, while still allowing tanning.
An Active Anti Ageing System including herbal extracts may help reinforce the skin's natural UV rays defences against fine lines and wrinkles and neutralises cell damaging free radicals.
Parasol is enriched with moisturisers to help prevent peeling and to leave your skin silky smooth. And because it doesn't leave sticky residue, it is ideal for sandy beaches.
Remember you can still burn:
The right protection:
Young children, especially under three years, should not be exposed to direct sunlight and care should be taken with children playing in the water, as water reflects sunlight increasing the risk of sunburn.
It is essential that you select the right protection product to protect you skin from the sun's ultra violet rays.
There are two sunrays that can cause damage to your skin - UVA and UVB - and which are attributed to sunburn and premature ageing.
When you are selecting your sun protection product it is important that you choose the right sun protection factor number (SPF) for your skin type.
A SPF is a measurement of the UVB rays and identifies the sun protection time. To calculate your safe sun tanning time simply multiply your own natural protection time by the SPF number.
For example if your skin burns after approximately 15 minutes exposure to the sun without a sun protection product then multiply this time by the SPF.
15 minutes x product with SPF 10 = 150 minutes of protection.

Very quick delivery. This sun protecter is so good!! I tried it through recommendation for myself and husband and so glad I did. Have been buying it now for about the last 8 years. We holiday in Cyprus in the hottest months and it really does protect you from burning. Just make sure you follow the instructions when applying. Would definitely recommend! The added bonus is Factor 10 once opened is last 48 months.

once you start using this product you will never use any other sun cream.
only need apply once a day
dries in quickly
great to rub in your hair
and fantastic to use as a moisturised on your return from the sun as it stops you from peeling. factor 10 is great but somepeople might need a higher factor say 15 or 20 and as for the kids well think of all the above points.
Now all my friends who have ever being on holidays with me are using it since they saw for them selves the results.

I've bought this sunscreen for years and love it. It's a small bottle but all you need as you only apply it once a day. It's a fine oil which is lovely. I've tried other once-a-day creams from the shops and they are not nearly as good. Some are like emulsion paint to apply!

I have been using Parasol Factor 10+, Factor 20+ and Hair product for several years and I go abroad regularly.
The product is easy to apply, lasts well (applied once per day) , is not sticky or greasy and leaves the skin feeling soft.
The only downside is that, when used on the face (there is a separate face product) it irritates the eyes.

Absolutely brilliant - go abroad four times a year and Parasol products are top of my list.
