Protecting the skin from harmful UV rays is essential in maintaining good skin health while also reducing the risk from sunburn and lowering the risk of skin cancer. The Asda protect SPF50 anti-age facial sun cream offers the highest UVA protection with a five star rating while also offering protection against UVB rays. Certain medications and skin care products can influence your skin to become photo sensitive making it more susceptible to pigmentation and the signs of aging, this is why you should apply a sunscreen that will help you reach your skincare goals while protecting the skin even on cloudy days.

What Is Inside The ASDA Protect SPF 50+ Face Q10 Anti-Age Sun Cream?

The Asda protect SPF50 anti-age facial sun cream is enriched with Q10 (Ubiquinone), hyaluronic acid (Sodium Hyaluronate) and vitamin E (Tocopherol) to offer the skin some other skincare benefits with its high protection. The water resistant sun cream also provides 24 hour moisturising and enhances the skins natural protection against sunburn, though it is suggested to reapply after perspiring, swimming and towelling to maintain the protection abilities it has to offer. The sunscreen ingredients it contains are as follows:

Octocrylene - chemical sunscreen that provides protection from UVB and somewhat in the UVA II range though it is used to support other UV-filter ingredients and boost water resistance of a product.

Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane - Known as Avobenzone that is widely used for UVA protection, it typically is combined with other sunscreen ingredients because it is not photo-stable and loses its protection after one hour in sunlight. 

Diethylamino Hydroxybenzoyl Hexyl Benzoate - A new chemical sunscreen that provides high UVA protection and high photostability.

Titanium Dioxide (Nano) - A highly-stable physical sunscreen that provides broad spectrum UV protection (best at UVB and UVA II). 

Ethylhexyl Salicylate - UVB sunscreen filter that is with other sunscreen ingredients to enhance the SPF protection in the product.

Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine - Chemical sunscreen that provides broad spectrum protection and is photstable. It also helps stabilise other ingredients such as the other sunscreen ingredient Avobenzone.

How To Use The ASDA Protect SPF 50+ Face Q10 Anti-Age Sun Cream?

Presented in a tube with a flip top lid it is essential you apply the proper amount to the face, neck and the ears for the adequate protection to be gained. The light lotion texture of the sunscreen helps it glide over the skin easily, before absorbing quickly, to leave a non-greasy light skin feel with no noticeable white cast. I did not experience any piling or flaking off from the product when applying over serums and moisturisers but if fragrance is a problem you may not like this as it is quite strong on application but soon fades.
