Lancaster Sun Sensitive Luminous Tan Oil-Free Milk SPF50 Review

Do you want to keep your sensitive skin safe in the sun without sacrificing a sense of luxury – and without having to worry about the impact on the environment? If the answer to this question is ”yes”, then you’re going to want to hear about Lancaster’s Luminous Tan Oil-Free Milk SPF50. As part of their Sun Sensitive collection, it will care for delicate skin while maintaining broad-spectrum UV protection. Read on to find out more…


The Most Important Thing About This Sunscreen Is…

As a part of Lancaster’s updated Sun Sensitive range, the Luminous Tan Oil-Free Milk is a high-tolerance SPF50 formulation specially designed for sensitive skin. Not only will it offer high broad-spectrum defence against both UVA and UVB rays, but the skin-quenching formula also cools and comforts even the most sensitive skin. Consumer tests show that 94% of people felt that their skin was efficiently protected after the first test, while after two weeks, 100% of people said that their skin felt soothed, and 98% said the skin boasted a delicate, progressive glow.


You Will Love This If…

If you’re a fan of Lancaster’s ultra-luxurious sun care collection (it was a firm favourite of Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco, no less!), then you can enjoy the same addictive summer scent and highly sensorial textures, while knowing that your skin’s skin’s health – and the health of coral reefs – are still prioritised.


The Formula:

Lancaster’s patented Full Light Technology protects against UVA/UVB/Visible light/Infrared rays. At the same time, a natural-origin Sunsicalm Complex soothes skin and protects against sun-induced skin damage. And, of course, their iconic natural-origin Tan Activator Complex still laces this sunscreen. Made with sweet orange, it ensures a luminous and even tan by stimulating the tanning process and promoting the diffusion of melanin in the skin.

But that’s not all! Lancaster’s sunscreen contains 40% fewer ingredients than some of their previous Sun Sensitive formulas. The clean, no-nasties lotion is compliant with Yuka and Sephora charters. It’s also respectful of the natural environment: the formula uses ocean-friendly filters that are non-toxic for marine life while still promoting your skin’s health and safety. As a result, you won’t find oxybenzone, octinoxate, octocrylene or homosalate filters. It has a biodegradable, water-resistant base, too.


The Texture

Lancaster’s sun lotion for the body has a really lightweight, liquid milky texture that you can smooth over and massage into larger areas with minimal effort. And let’s not forget about the summer scent that subtly lingers on the skin once smoothed in!


The Finish

Lancaster’s sun cream blends in really quickly and easily to leave a non-oily, invisible finish.


How Should You Apply It?

Apply a generous, even layer all over the body before sun exposure.


How Often Do You Need To Reapply?

It’s recommended to reapply every two hours to maintain protection and also reapply after excessive sweating, towel drying or swimming.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

Held in a vibrant matte orange tube, the sunscreen instantly screams Lancaster – it’s the iconic, positive colour that fans of the brand will recognise straight away. Not only is the tube perfect for popping in handbags and beach bags, but it also makes application easy and breezy. Lancaster’s updated Sun Sensitive collection is making more of a step towards sustainability, too; the bottle contains a minimum of 50% post-consumer recycled plastic, while the boxes are made from responsibly sourced paper.



Vegan and cruelty-free. Dermatologically-tested.
