    Aldi Sunscreen- be it Valu or be it dangerous?

    Bought a bottle yesterday for 3.49, is it any good? Has anyone used it already? At that price you'd be mad to be shelling out for Nivea/amb solaire/Garnier at 3 times the price

    Doubt if they can lie about the SPF value so should be good to go.

    Don't be fooled by the the HIgh SPF the longer you can roast myth

      Have heard that it's actually better than some of the leading brands. Somebody (I can't remember who, as usual) mentioned recently that it's more breathable, so it doesn't form a seal, which can result in rashes for some people.

          Sorry Chips. In 1997 Ireland moved on.

          I know something that will blow your minds. I can't tell you and I can't tell you why I can't tell you. You'll know soon and then I'll be confirmed right.

            Does it sink in or are you going around like yerman.

                I just did a quick Google and there's absolute no hard evidence to support this assertion at all - there's only one study that had incomplete results and certainly nothing definitive. The last major study (done in Australia over a period of 10 years) showed that correct use of sunscreen prevents melanomas.

                You should delete that misinformed rubbish.

                  In that case nighttime should come with a health warning. No sunshine means no vitamin D which obviously means cancer!

                      So what do you suggest? Don't wear sunscreen?

                      If you have a link to the peer reviewed, scientific paper backing up your opinion (and not an article that summarizes it) then I urge you to post it here.

                          I've never bought brand name sunscreen. Often times the off brand stuff is made in the same factory as the name brand.

                              Correctamundo. Although, "made in same factory" does not always mean "made to same standard"
