Brilliant, bargain sunscreen
I have melasma and so use a high SPF sunscreen 365 days of the year on my face, come rain or shine. I am continually on the lookout for a good value sunscreen with spf 50 & 5* UVA protection which doesn't feel heavy, sticky or leave a telltale white cast on my skin and this is the best I've tried in ages. This is a fantastic buy for such a big tube (it's meant for face and body), and I use it every day - I've decanted a bit into a dinky pump bottle for in my handbag as well and it hasn't caused any breakouts or sensitivity (after ~ 1 month of consistent use). I just apply it onto bare skin, or sometimes mix a squirt of foundation in with it if I fancy a tinted moisturiser effect - for my normal/combination skin this is plenty hydrating enough without anything else underneath. I'm not sure if it's been reformulated again since the previous reviewers 'sheep farmer' comment about the scent, but it smells just fine to me :-)

Excellent product, bought on BOGOF 2010, used in Egypt and across Usa in very high desert temperatures, no smell, not at all greasy and provides superior protection if properly used. My partner and I have different skin types and it worked for both of us. Much better than some of the well known brands. I will definitely be buying this again.

No offence to sheep farmers!!!
I used to be a total advocate of Mark's suncream, and encouraged friends and family to try it. It gave excellent sun protection, even the lower factors, and smelled divine. So this year I bought off the shelf on a buy one get one free, and jetted off to the sun. I have just spent three weeks smelling like a sheep farmer. This new formula is really greasy, and smells horrible! Really horrible! It still protects from the sun, but that is as much as I can say positively about it. It ruined my sun bathing experience, and my clothes, and my husband wasn't coming anywhere near me if I wore it. I had to buy another brand at resort prices. Not a happy shopper! Bring back the old formula, please M&S, it was so lovely!!!
