Do you struggle to find the right sunscreen for your sensitive skin?

Finding the right sunscreen can be problematic if you suffer from skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, skin rashes due to prickly heat or polymorphic light eruption and allergies to perfumes.

If sensitive skin is becoming a tiresome condition to live with on a daily basis, it may feel like a complete nightmare to be out in the sun.


It is recommended that the use of a good quality broad spectrum sunscreen which offers the highest SPF available is important for individuals suffering from sensitive skin conditions.1

If you do suffer from sensitive skin, it’s time to help reduce your risk of sun damage, by exposing your skin to Less Ultra Violet (LUV) radiation. The, UK’s Best LUVed sunscreen2 SunSense offers the highest UV protection available in Australia3. SunSense is designed for all ages and skin types, making it ideal for sensitive skin.

SunSense Sensitive SPF 50+ is suitable for very sensitive skin because it contains physical blockers, rather than chemical absorbers and offers UVA and UVB broad spectrum protection. It is also free of lanolin, fragrance and colour, therefore minimising the potential for irritation. SunSense Sensitive SPF 50+ offers 4 hours water resistance and contains vitamin B3 to help improve skin tone and texture.4

If you have sensitive skin we would recommend you patch test on a small patch of skin on your forearm for a few days. If irritation occurs, wash affected area and discontinue use.
