Australian GoldI thought the Greek sunshine would prove a good test for the Australian Gold sun protection. We were sent to try Premium Coverage 30 Continuous Spray Sunscreen and Premium Coverage 10 Lotion.

I always go for a high sun protection factor (SPF) and the Premium Coverage 30 suited me very well. Before venturing out each day I used the spray which is tinted so you can see where you have applied with the bonus of looking a little tanned. This offers UVA and UVB protection and is very water resistant which is handy for a beach holiday. My skin responded well and I didn't have even a tinge of redness.

PWT rating:

I know Olivia would go for the low protection and she didn't heed my warning to use the higher protection first so the inevitable happened – she burned in places. The Premium Coverage 10 states quite clearly low protect so I feel this one should be used with cautiously. It also offers UVA and UVB protection and is very water resistant.

PWT rating:

Both products are easy to apply, and quickly absorbed leaving skin feeling soft and shine free.

Australian Gold Premium Coverage is paraben, PABA, alcohol and gluten free and has no colouring agents or mineral oils so perfect for sensitive skin.

While we were on holiday Harriet continued using the Ultrasun Extreme 50 which was excellent needing only one application in the morning to last her through the day.

Australian Gold products are available from Cyrano Ltd.
