    I'd recommend! (but avoid on the face if you suffer from acne)

    I love this suncream - the clean ingredients, the easily reused and recycled packaging. I've used it on my face and body in variable conditions. I should mention, I have olive-y toned skin, and tend to tan rather than burn, but while working in the garden (during lockdown, lol), I started to get a bit pink on my shoulders, so thought some sun protection was in order. Unfortunately my first order arrived with the tins so squashed I couldn't open then, BUT the team at Acala were so gracious in quickly shipping me more at no extra cost!

    The lotion itself is thick, you scoop it out of the pot, and it goes on like a cream rather than a more liquid-y lotion. I found that it started off looking like clown makeup, but after rubbing it in for a while it blended in with my skin (I'm caucasian so I don't know to what extent this would blend for those with darker skin tones) and was also moisturising. Anyway, it seems to do the job just fine, no more pink shoulders! I'd recommend giving it a go if you're a frequent suncream user. I have only tried this in the UK, where our weather is hit and miss, so if you were somewhere sunnier and out in the sun all day you might need something with a higher SPF.

    One downside, which may not be relevant to most, I found that it wasn't suitable for my face. I have combination skin and breakout often and very easily, so this formula was just too thick to use on my whole face, but a bit on my nose and cheekbones is fine, on very sunny days!
