SUN DAY facial UV defence

All day everyday protection to keep skin safe.


SUN DAY facial UV defence

Broad spectrum, so your skin stays protected from both UVA and UVB rays, applying this water resistant SPF50 should become as much of a habit as brushing your teeth in the morning. Guarding from sun damage and free radicals that cause premature ageing, it also works hard for your skin with hyaluronic acid to hydrate, the tropical and unique banana flower extract to calm and prebiotics that provide the right environment for your skin to flourish and stay healthy. As you enjoy the updated subtle scent of a berry-kissed summer breeze, it glides onto the face and sinks in immediately, leaving no trace of white chalkiness. Plus, we’re incredibly proud that it carries the Protect Land + Sea logo, which means it’s certified reef-safe.

  • Benefits

    The sun might feel good on your skin but prolonged exposure isn’t doing it any favours. What’s more important to know is that UVA and UVB rays attack your skin regardless of whether the sun is out or not, so it’s vital you always wear sunscreen. UVA rays can also bounce off reflective surfaces, so even if you can’t feel them, they’re unavoidable. That means there’s even more reason to protect your skin from elasticity and collagen breakdown. Enter our everyday hero, Sun Day. With a lightweight texture, feel-good scent and the perfect consistency, it makes applying makeup on top a dream. Think of it as a primer with benefits. Also protecting from free radical damage with antioxidants like hibiscus and banana flower extract, this sunscreen keeps skin protected on every level. You can thank us later!

    Our heroes:

    Our Heroes
    Hyaluronic acid

    A moisture magnet of an ingredient, this won’t let moisture escape and clings on to anything you apply that hydrates the skin too. Combined with aloe vera, your complexion will be smooth, plump and feel ultra fresh.

    Hibiscus extract
    An antioxidant that fights free radicals from causing inflammation and damage, such as crumbling collagen, it also helps to boost elastin production. It’s also high in vitamin C to promote brighter-looking skin.

    Plant polymers
    Rather than using silicone to create that flawless smooth finish, we use plant polymers that help the formula roll and glide onto skin.

How to use

After cleansing, toning and moisturising, apply generously all over your face making sure you don’t miss out the skin around your hairline. You don’t have to wait around to put your makeup on but leave it 15 minutes before you go outside. If you’re planning to increase your sun exposure or intensity, reapply every two hours and immediately after swimming, bathing or towel drying. And always avoid having your face in direct sunlight – wear a hat and sunglasses to protect your skin from any harmful UV rays.

This is my new favourite sunscreen. It melts into skin fast and moisturises deeply without leaving behind an oily residue, a grey tone or causing breakouts. It's so substantial, I now skip my moisturiser and serum and just apply this after cleansing in the morning.
