I was looking online for deals but there appeared to be two different descriptions of similar bottles. One said ultrasun and the other said ultrasun once a day. Hence my query as they were the same size but the once a day was more expensive

We buy ultra sun factor 50 sports spray for ds. He is on immunosuppression medication which puts him at a high risk for melanoma and has to wear sunscreen any day there is any hint of sunshine so in this country he puts it on in the morning then can forget about it. He does tend to reapply on holiday but that is probably more our paranoia!

Any Ultrasun products we've ever used have been once a day. I use the face 50+, extreme 50+ or family 30. My brother's use the sports 30 or 50. We're just back from Florida and even my dad's bald head was fine all day with the sports spray or gel.

I'm not aware of any Ultrasun products that aren't once a day but I could be wrong. There could be new options I haven't seen or tried yet.

Coppertone sport spray is our preffered choice, we've never burnt using it and DH is very pale and from the north east he can easily burn in the UK and did at Easter!

We always use Boots Once. Lasts 8 hours which is great for parks as donít have to worry about putting it in again. Also do a water one which last 3 hours which good for water parks. 2 of us red heads and never been burnt.

Hi Rob, good choice, a survey published in Nat Geo listed Walmart's Equate sunblock as number one.

Possibly in the same article, can't remember... apparently, circa 45/50 SPF is currently the highest protection achievable and not to waste money paying for sunblock claiming up to 100 SPF.

I think you canít buy above SPF 50 in Australia for that reason.

Wow, I like it because it's so easy to put on.
Had to have a BCC removed from my face last November ( caused from when I was young ) so I have to use it here as well.
