    Worst sunscreen I have ever used. I wanted to love it as the ingredients provide great coverage, but it was oily and sticky- NOT cool and dry. When it did finally seem to dry, a light graze of my fingers over my skin took off what was there-- it looked like my skin was peeling off. So disappointed!

    Hi Julia,
    Thank you for your feedback on SunSense Clear Gel SPF 50+.
    We are sorry to learn of your experience.

    Due to the gel nature of the product, it does not absorb into skin the same way a cream does. We would like to hear more of your experience, and we would ask that you please take the time to contact our Customer Service team on 1800 033 706 or at so that we may further assist you.

    Great product. Goes on well, feels great - ideal for wearing when going to work. Please bring it out in a larger bottle - becomes very expensive for whole family to use.

    Please bring this out in a larger size bottle - I found it didn't spread well and I used 1/3 of a bottle just on my arms, shoulders and lower legs.

    I have very sensitive skin and I had little trouble with it, although while I was applying I thought I might be peeling as it took a layer of (dead) skin off.

    One warning - it does take off nail polish.

    My review of the SunSense Clear Gel is as follows - I really like the fact it is a gel and not a cream. Rubs in fantastically, nice it is not greasy and no white faces after application. The smell is a little off putting, reminds me of antiseptic hand cleaning gels. I found it caused no skin irritation whatever and was very happy with the sun protection in offered. Definitely a good product.

    Love the non-greasy texture of this. Once the alcohol smell disappears (very quickly) the fragrance is lovely. A bit ouchy on the face, as alcohol-based sunscreens are, but otherwise great for general non-water use. Thanks for the opportunity to try it.

    Thanks so much for the chance to try this product. The strong chemical smell on first applying didn't last and changed to quite a pleasant fragrance.
    Not having to worry about white bits here and there is a plus. I did have a sticky feeling on my hands after applying but I guess that means my hands are protected too.

    Thanks for the trial, its always great to try a new product. l found it very easy to apply to the skin, great for kids when there in a hurry. l found the smell a bit strong but it didnt last long. My family and l didn't get sunburnt which was great. l think 40min water resistant time was very short compared to other sunblocks bar that l thought it was great to use and felt great on your skin.

    Thank you for the opportunity to trial you sun screen product. I found the gel to be easily absorbed, leaving no messy white streaks. However the first time I used it on my face I found my eyes reacted with a stinging sensation to the chemical type fumes that are present when first applying the gel to the skin. So I would advise caution putting it on children's faces. The chemical smell is strong when the gel is first applied but I didn't find a lingering residual smell, it does, however, give a more clinical feel to the sunscreen. The coolness of the gel while a bit of a suprise when first used, was quite refeshing. Most impotantly I didn't get sunburnt.

    liked the product,both my husband and i used it .the gel is far better then other creamy types but the addition of a fragrance would enhance the product

    I found this product very good and helps when in the sun to stop me from getting very sunburnt
