Choosing the best Sunscreen for your lifestyle

Choosing the best Sunscreen for your lifestyle

veryone likes to spend time outdoors, but with one of the harshest climates in the world, Australians need to be particularly careful. At Ego, we found that when you choose the best sunscreen that suits your lifestyle, whatever it may be, it maximises the chances of you using sun protection and incorporating it in your skin care regimen. The reality is that we have one of the highest rates of skin cancer worldwide and about two in three of us will be affected during our lifetime,1 so we need to be wearing sunscreen everyday.

The SunSense Sunscreen Breakdown

At Ego, we formulate our sunscreen based on the types of lives that our customers lead. No matter your occupation or day-to-day needs, we’ve got your back. The ingredients of the bases used in our sunscreen will differ depending on the affect that the sunscreen needs to achieve.

Here is a breakdown of our SunSense range to help you choose the best sunscreen from our range for you. These are the people we had in mind when we formulated and created them. Which one(s) are you?

The Super Parent

Keeping your entire family protected is your top priority. You’ve always got everybody’s needs covered and the Esky packed with an assortment of everyone’s favourite foods. Your first-aid kit is renowned around the neighbourhood and you’re the pillar of every family outing. You’re a world of patience and your kids are your pride and joy even when they’re fighting you on everything, from food to wearing a hat. Even though you’re fantastic at handling all the stresses that a family brings, sometimes, you just wish it was that little bit easier to keep everyone happy.

Choose the best sunscreen for everyone in the family, we made the SunSense Ultra SPF50+ for you.

SunSense Ultra is one of the sunscreens within the range that has recently acquired an updated formulation with an oil-in-water formula for a lighter skin-feel. This makes the application of the sunscreen a much more enjoyable experience for everyone. No more complaining about that yucky sunscreen feel. This might be one thing the kids won’t fight you on. But if they don’t like Ultra, try SunSense Junior, formulated to suit even delicate baby’s skin and available in a convenient roll-on packaging that they can master fast.

The Sports Addict

You’re fit and healthy and you like to keep it that way. If there’s an outdoor activity, you’re there, especially if water and swimming is going to be involved. You demand a lot from not just yourself, but also your equipment and of course, your sunscreen needs to adhere to your rigorous and sporty lifestyle. You know you have to reapply sunscreen often, but you’d just rather not worry about it for as long as possible, especially not in the middle of an hour’s gym session, a footy game or a netball competition.

SunSense Sport SPF50+ is the best sunscreen for you.

SunSense Sport SPF50+ was created with sweat, water and sand in mind. We made sure that our Sports sunscreen provided better water-resistance and reformulated so that it’s easier to reapply an even layer for the ultimate sun protection. This way, you don’t have to worry about whether your sunscreen is providing adequate protection every half an hour (still reapply every 2 hours though, but you know that).

The Sensitive Skinned

Your skin is hard to manage. There’s no two ways about it. It turns red and itchy and flares up with a range of common skin care ingredients. With such sensitive skin, it can be hard to choose the best sunscreen, especially when it seems impossible to find the perfect, non-irritating formula with even the most basic skin care.

SunSense Sensitive SPF50+ and SunSense Sensitive Invisible SPF50+ were made with your skin type in mind.

At Ego, we really strive to cater towards people with skin conditions and problematic skin. We understand the frustration of flare-ups and skin irritation. So we created our Sensitive sunscreens with as little known irritants as possible. These sunscreens contain only physical blockers to minimise irritation from chemical UV absorbers.

The Multi-tasker

You are a busy, working girl and you just need to get stuff done. Everything you do has a sense of purpose and efficiency. Life’s too short to not optimise and sometimes you just wished that you could make more time so that you can live life to its very fullest.

SunSense Daily Face SPF 50+ was formulated to save you time

If you don’t have time for a full face of makeup everyday, but you still want your skin tone to look even, the Daily Face has a sheer tint to help even things out and leaves your face feeling matte and elegant. That way, you don’t have to spend too much time in front of the mirror, leaving you more time to get on with life.

The Makeup Wearer

You wake up early in morning because you know that your makeup routine is going to take you at least half an hour, possibly more if a bold lip and a blinding highlight is involved. And you know what. It’s worth it. You look flawless. But if you can save a step here and there to reduce your skin care routine so that you can use it to perfect that winged eyeliner, you’ll take it.

The SunSense Moisturising Face SPF50+ is for you.

Moisturising Face does exactly what it says it will. With a moisturising base that contains Vitamin B3 (nicotinamide) and Vitamin E to help maintain healthy skin barrier function and improve appearance of skin texture, this sunscreen is a multi-tasker and could save you a step in the morning.

The Skin Care Fanatic

You take your skin seriously. The latest skin care trends, you’re on it. You look at the ingredients list of your products and you expect every step of your skin care regimen to work hard. Your sunscreen should be no different and do more than just protect your skin from the harsh UV rays. It isn’t just about the sun protection when you choose the best sunscreen.

Our Anti-ageing Face SPF50+ and Anti-Ageing Face Matte SPF50+ are perfect for you.

A dual-action formula, this sunscreen provides not just sun protection but also contains AHAs for anti-ageing action. This sunscreen contains all the benefits of a SPF50+ broad-spectrum sunscreen plus alpha-hydroxy-acids to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With added benefits of Vitamin E (an antioxidant) in the formula, this sunscreen works to protect and also improve the appearance of skin tone.

The Outdoor Worker

Mate, you just don’t want to be burnt while you’re working. You’re outdoors all the time. You’re not fussed too fussed about skin care, but skin cancer isn’t cool. But heck, you don’t have time or patience to rub a thick, viscous lotion all over your body that takes ages to sink into the skin. You find it hard to choose the best sunscreen.

We created SunSense Clear Mist to suit your needs.

The formula is cool and dry, not to mention quick drying. Water resistant to combat the sweat and fragrance free, this is a no-fuss formulation that just gets the job done. Use Clear Mist for super easy and quick reapplication.

Ego tries to be as inclusive as possible and answer to our customer’s needs. If none of these sunscreen sound like they’re for you. Leave us a comment of what you want out of your sunscreen, so that we can take your needs into consideration or let us know which sunscreen wearer you are!
