Australian Gold Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30 Review

[simple-author-box] The Australian Gold Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30 is a broad spectrum lotion that will protect your skin from a variety of bad UV rays that can attack you while you’re out in the sun.

While you think you’re getting a golden tan, the sun is actually damaging your body.

SPF lotion is vital for protecting yourself from sunburn, which is never fun. It’s also meant for long-term protection. Even if you don’t burn, you’re still allowing the sun’s rays to do its damage.

Sun damage can have a huge impact on your skin later in life. It might not be a concern now, but it will be later.

Australian Gold

The company has crafted this formula over their 25 years in the business. They provide unrivaled sun protection that doesn’t involve animal testing or extra chemicals.

They want you to smell amazing and look great while you’re out in the sun. The company created their products to feel good on the skin, too. You won’t feel sticky or oily when using their products.

Broad Spectrum Protection

We’ve talked before about the sunscreen and sunblock chemicals that are needed to protect your skin properly. UVA and UVB rays are attacking your skin as soon as you step out the door.

Even if it’s cloudy outside, the rays are filtering down through the clouds. That’s why weather people will always tell you to avoid staying outside even if it’s cloudy in the summer time.

Sunscreens will protect the body by dispersing the sun’s harmful rays with the use of chemicals. They’ll only block UVA rays. Sunblock will repel the UVB rays using a physical protection in the form of minerals.

Most companies understand the difference between sunblock and sunscreen even if the general public does not. They’ll list their protections on the side of the product.

In this case, the Australian Gold SPF 30 lotion is broad spectrum, which means it protects against both UVA and UVB for the best protection possible.

Signature Fragrance without Heavy Chemicals

The company has a variety of scents that they’re known for around the pool, so to speak. They have citrus oasis or cocoa dreams. This lotion is from their cocoa dreams collection of lotions.

Great Ingredients

The SPF 30 lotion has great ingredients aside from the protection level it gives to those playing in the sun. It’s made with Kakadu plum, tea tree oil, and aloe vera.

These ingredients have properties that will moisturize and nourish the skin while giving you the ultimate in sun protection.

Water Resistant for 80 Minutes

When you’re at the beach or the pool, you need a sunscreen or sunblock that will keep your entire body protected while in the water itself.

You don’t want to come out of the water every 20 minutes to reapply sunscreen. Water is a reflective surface, so without the proper protection, you’ll end up with a chest and face that is bright red.

Over time, that will result in a huge amount of skin damage.

If you come out of the water and towel dry yourself, you’ll still need to apply more lotion. It will last for 80 minutes against sweat and water, but not wiping it from your body.

It’s important that you reapply as necessary to keep yourself protected out in the sun all throughout the day. Many people find themselves using lotion in the morning before heading out the door, but they don’t reapply as often as necessary.

Light Bronzer

The lotion has a light bronzer that will look great on your skin – especially if you are very light and headed to the beach for the first time this season.

The bronzer gives a light golden glow to your skin, which will make you feel less white and pasty on the beach with everyone else.

The light tint has been known to ruin clothing if you’re not super careful, though. Always apply it and rub it in until it’s absorbed. Once it’s absorbed into the skin, you won’t have to worry about the color rubbing off on your bathing suit.

Non-Greasy Application

This lotion won’t leave you feeling incredibly greasy like some suntan and sunscreen lotions. You can use this when you’re not going to the beach, too.

Apply it 15 minutes before you’re going to be in the sun. That will protect you for hours as you shop, take a hike, walk your dog, ride your bike, or stroll through the park.

Any outdoor activity where the sun will be beaming on you directly means that you should be using sunscreen or sunblock.

Even if the sun is hidden, the rays are doing their job through those clouds.

Australian Gold Lotion Sunscreen is an SPF 30 lotion that will protect you for hours in the sun as long as you reapply it frequently to stay fully protected.
