Review: Boots Soltan Invisible Dry-Touch Transparent Suncare Spray SPF50

I promised I'd come back and do a proper review of this once I'd used it, so here we are.

The product: Boots Soltan Invisible Dry-Touch Transparent Suncare Spray SPF50 (also available in SPF 8, 15, 30). The blurb says: "A 100% transparent spray which disappears instantly into your skin leaving no white marks or greasy residue."

Disappears Instantly?: Not quite - I did apply this and wait a while before dressing. It does soak in quickly - you have to rub this in quickly to get it all over your skin as the liquid evaporates very very fast.

Leaving no white marks or greasy residue?: Again, not quite - the predominant delivery liquid in this is alcohol based and therefore evaporates swiftly, but there is a small amount of grape seed oil in the product to lightly moisturise which does leave the skin slightly greasy, but no more than a regular body lotion and certainly nothing like a regular sun cream which is full of oils and moisturisers. The liquid itself is completely clear so definitely no white marks. I did notice some discolouration on my white top the other day from the sunscreen I assume, I have always noticed that SPFs do tend to make white cloth turn yellow for some reason. However, that day it was really hot and it could have also been sweat!

The smell: Is like sun screen. The smell does fade pretty quickly though, and what little remained was easily overpowered by perfume.

As I mentioned in my previous post, Boots Soltan has a 5 star UVA rating as well as the varied SPFs, which is good news for the skin.

This product is my saviour - as I said before I hate suncream because of the way my skin reacts to it but this has been brilliant, and has replaced regular moisturiser in my daily routine whilst the weather is this warm. Light enough to wear everyday, not just on the beach, I will never fear sunny lunches out in the courtyard at work again!

Boots Soltan Invisible Dry-Touch Transparent Suncare Spray is available from Boots, currently on a BOGOF deal, for £11.99 for the SPF50.
