Rated 5 out of 5 by girlwonder1 never without this
amazing as a primer / make up base. leaves a lovely youthful Sheen not A greasy shine like cheaper facial sun lotion products. i use this everyday Im outside regardless of weather after applying on a morning you can see you do not have to reapply as the lovely Sheen is still present . some days i dont even need to wear foundation or a bb cream just a little concealer under eyes and am done. i buy A lot of my beauty products from qvc and chop and change ranges quite a bit but always have this and will never change to another facial spf. i use a moisturiser on top only on very cold days .

Rated 3 out of 5 by MoggiesRGr8 Good sunscreen for 'normal' conditions
I am generally pleased with this product as it does stop you from getting burnt in 'normal' UK weather conditions however, if you are going to be out in very hot sun all day (ie in 'extreme conditions'), or you exceed you 'sun account', you will need to reapply - as explained in the leaflet that comes with this duo. I did use this product while on holiday in mainland Europe recently when it was very hot and decided to test out the once a day claim. I was out in the sun all day and applied Ultra Sun liberally before breakfast, more than 30 mins before going out in the sun. Unfortunately, on day one, my cheeks got a bit burnt so I stoprped using it and switched to a very high factor sunscreen that I plastered on regularly! Ultra Sun is simply too expensive to keep reapplying as you would a standard sunscreen. Being fair skinned (with lots of freckles), I will continue to use this in the UK but I would definitely not rely on it for once a day application in hotter climates, preferring instead to use a high factor sunscreen that I will have to re-apply. This is the only way that I'll feel confident that I will be protected.
Unlike some reviewers, I am not able to wear this instead of my usual daily moisturiser (from Liz Earle's range) as it makes my skin feel tight so I still have to put moisturiser on top. I find that it doesn't take that long to sink into the skin and doesn't feel gritty or sticky at all. It does make a good base for moisturiser/makeup and your makeup doesn't slide off.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Zara100 What a Pity
The Ultra Sun Face 30 spf was included in last months TSV. This was the first time I had used any Ultrasun on my face and was really disappointed as my face has reacted with huge & painful spots & boils.
I have not changed any other product on my face so it's looking like the Ultra Sun Face Formula is not for me which is a pity as I have used the body formula's which were great.
I wonder if the Face Sensitive Formula would be an option for me but Im hesitant to try it as I don't want further breakouts.
I will continue with the Body Formula's but for me, the Face Formula is not an option. What a shame!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gillyflowerxxx At last something that works
I have fair skin but want a tan, I suffer with prickly heat and horrible rashes over my neck and upper chest area, this year I took the plunge and purchased Ultrasun and it works.
In fact I thought I was over the initial rash time and used another cream and the rash was back so I used Ultrasun and all was well.
If there is a down side its the cost, I am unemployed so this layout is huge for me but we only have the one skin and Im worth it!!!

I think this is the best moisturiser for my skin, let alone the protection it gives me. I am 72 years old and have lived in the tropics when I was a young girl. I wish they had this product then! As I had an oily skin, any sun products I have used in the past, brought me out in spots. Consequently, I abstained and have got some sun damage. However, even though I'm ancient, I still like to look good and protect my face from further damage, even though I don't sit in the sun anymore. By using this product, my skin feels moisturised and firmer than before. I use it all the time now and I find my makeup lasts all day without the need of a primer. Please please, keep it going through the winter months as I am a pensioner and can't afford to stock up but would hate to run out as I don't want to use anything else on my face. Thank you Ultrasun for such a wonderful product and thank you QVC for bringing it to our attention.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Purespirit7 Dubious ingredients
I love QVC apart from STILL providing little or no product (ingredients) info on personal use products! (Frustrating)
SPF protects against UVB NOT UVA, which is the one that burns you and damages skin.
Too many chemicals/alcohol content for me.
Prefer natural based sunscreens.
Would not have purchased if ingredients known prior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alyssia Non greasy and no spots!
This was my first time using Ultrasun, I used to use Decleor but was attracted to the once a day application and it really does work. I've got slightly olive complexion and usually get a lot of spots, this hasn't happened and didn't happen when I returned home either. Its fantastic, I didn't burn at all and one 50ml bottle lasted me 11 nights.

I was keen to use this product as I drive a open topped car exposing my face to the sun each day. However after using it for three weeks my cheeks are bright red with lots of raised lumps under the skin. I have now stopped using this on my face for a week and my skin is beginning to calm down with the help of decleor neroli oil.
