Lidl Cien Sunscreen: Wouldya?

By Beaut.ie | May 4 2010 | 46 Comments

Glue guns, bedazzlers, bird feeders and all the kit I’d need for a fully-featured kayaking experience are things I’ll happily buy from Lidl.  Shizz to protect me from skin cancer? Hmm, I’d be a bit leery.

I will put my hands up and say that while there is an element of snobbery to that, I do also want my suncare to come from a company that actually specialises, invests and researches in this area. And while Lidl’s versions do assure us that they have both UVA and UVB protection and that that they “carry the ‘Institut Dr Schrader’ quality stamp for added peace of mind,” I’m still not keen.

But if you are a more trusting soul than I, then here’s one you lot might find interesting for facial protection purposes, and it’s a mere €2.99 for 100ml, which is rather good value, I think you’ll agree. I like how they’ve whacked an anti-ageing claim on to it – by the by, all a moisturiser needs to do to claim magic anti-ageing properties is to add sunscreen into the mix, so this is like saying it’s an anti-ageing anti-ageing product -  but it’s got factor of 25, and it’s suitable for face and neck, so if it suited you, could be an extremely cheap pick for summer usage.

Tell me, ladies, am I a snobby wagon for eschewing Lidl for my light-weight La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL, or do you agree with me?
