Ultrasun’s new tinted SPF30 gel formula


Ultrasun Tinted Face SPF30 50ml

We have the world launch of a contemporary approach to sun and skincare: Utrasun’s Tinted SPF30 Anti-ageing Face Formula!

This really proves how serious Ultrasun’s commitment to UVA and UVB protection is alongside their understanding of our need for a modern day solution. So, they’ve created a lightweight, easily absorbed, once-a-day formula. The airless pump applicator literally keeps the product safe to use for years, even when opened. Plus, the bottle won’t leak or spill when used for travel. One 50ml pump will last for about three months, when applied every morning. Remember, in extreme temperatures or with unavoidable prolonged exposure you may need to re-apply. 

So who will love it? This product is for anyone looking for a more lightweight, mattifying formula, rather than the original untinted version’s richer texture.

While SPF30 has a cream texture, Utrasun’s Tinted SPF30 Anti-ageing Face Formula is gel-like with oil absorbing ingredients. These elements mean the gel would definitely suit both combination and oily skin, but also any dry skin in hot or humid weather which leads to sweating. This new formula will also be great through the menopause as it would absorb perspiration caused by hot flushes. As if that wasn’t good enough, there are also anti-ageing ingredients squeezed in!

The tint is of the level of a tinted moisturiser, and as it is more of a gel texture is a colour enhancer. This actually improves your natural shade, giving warmth and a more even finish. However, very pale skin may wish to blend in the original SPF30 untinted as this will give a softer shade. 

Men and non make-up wearers will love this too as it is skin enhancing, rather than covering. If more cover is required you can re-apply after around five minutes. The time given ensures the SPF has settled and will be undisturbed by further make-up or skincare. However, I think the ease with this new product, in terms of use in hot weather, is its forté. Someone younger or with combination skin will love it on its own, whereas, older or dryer skin will love it in hot weather in conjunction with a hydrating anti-ageing serum such as Algenist, Skinesis or Gatineau. 

The result? A glamorously easy way to use SPF! 

Enjoy x

    Hello Alison,I really like this tinted SPF but find it dry’s into my skin as I’m applying it. I regularly exfoliate & am currently using aqua memory range during these warm month’s as I like light textures as I’m going through my own glowing moments(51yrs old). I also find that my make fades by mid day or goes patchy,I’m using bal/brighten & Laura’s primer,so please advise me what I’m doing wrong. Thank for yr honesty when on air.

    I have just suffered a heavy cold and had a terrible cough. I am told all the time I have really lovely skin especially for my age which is 65 and I do take care of it. I have no wrinkles.I have noticed yesterday that I have developed red patches on the top of my cheek bones under my eyes which I can only think are broken veins due to the pressure of coughing so much and blowing my nose. I have various eye products, Liz Earl, Elemis, Gatineau, Prai. What do you recommend I do to get rid of these blotches as it is upsetting to see them.
