‘’Help us end Sun Poverty with our Escentual Sunscreen, our community initiative to ensure that kids have access to high quality broad-spectrum sunscreen to create healthier, happier futures.’’ - Kate, Escentual Beauty Team.


Why You’ll Love Our Sunscreen:

  • For every one bought, one will be donated.
  • You will be helping making a difference to school children’s lives.
  • Broad-spectrum.
  • Invisible finish.
  • Water-resistant for up to four hours.
  • Suitable for use after 6 months of age.


What You Need To Know:

We’re on a mission to help end Sun Poverty - and you can help us by joining in with our #SunPoverty campaign; with your help in 2021, we've donated over 20,000 sunscreens to school children in the U.K who are eligible for free school meals, through our buy-one-donate-one scheme. But it doesn't stop there, next year we hope to donate even more!

We want to continue to educate everyone about the importance of wearing quality broad-spectrum sunscreen, so we’ve made sure that this SPF formula ticks every box; it offers 4-hour water-resistance, it’s hypoallergenic and fragrance-free, and of course, it’s broad-spectrum. This means that it protects against both UVA and UVB rays (which are the cause of everything from sunburn to photoageing and harmful skin damage). And yes, UVA rays can even penetrate through clouds and windows!

Our chemical sunscreen also helps to look after skin further with antioxidant vitamin e and skin-soothing aloe, which offers anti-inflammatory and skin-quenching benefits.


Why It’s Escentual:

There’s never been anything more Escentual (pun intended!) than our SPF50+ sunscreen for kids and adults alike. Here at Escentual, we’re incredibly passionate about teaching people about the importance of wearing sunscreen so everyone is better equipped to help keep their skin safe and healthy in the sun.

But not everyone has easy access to affordable broad-spectrum sunscreen, but we want to help change this through our #SunPoverty initiative. For each of our sunscreens bought through us, we’ll donate one to a child eligible for free school meals because every child should have the right to access broad-spectrum sunscreen.


The Best Way To Use It:

Apply 20 mins before sun exposure, so that the sunscreen has a chance to soak into the skin properly. Take care to apply a generous even layer, ensuring that you don’t miss any parts exposed to sunlight (areas that are often forgotten about are the under eye area,eyelids and the inner corner of your eye socket, along with the ears, neck, and back of the neck. Reapply every two hours to maintain a high level of protection, taking care to reapply after excessive sweating, swimming or towel drying.


The Sustainable Side:

The cap is recyclable and the bottle is also recyclable once the label and clip have been removed. Alternatively, you can reuse the carabiner clip.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Sunscreen Fab Sunscreen, love what escentual are doing with their Sunscreen campaign! Easy to use, goes on nicely and most importantly leaves no trace of it on your skin! As an Asian woman, it is a sturggle to find a good suncream at a good price and one that doesn't leave white cast either! So glad I found this 1 star taken off as I'd love to be able to buy a bigger bottle! Other than that it's great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent concept ease of use Hello my name is sharon but everyone calls me shazza, I am giving an honest review of this product, I first came across this product. On escentual web site and the concept of clipping this sun cream factor 50 to a handbag for ease of use was a brilliant idea and it’s ease of clasp meant it would clip on any handle or size bag you wanted even a child’s school bag or beach bag, I specially liked the idea of buying one and then another from escentual would be donated free to schools etc where ever it was needed most, well done escentual, In today’s current climate we also have to look after our skin, especially delicate skin, it’s becoming clear that we can’t sustain high temperatures and each year we seem to be breaking all weather temperature records so the usually factor 30 in my opinion although some sun cream is better than no cream!!! Isn’t enough so this little bottle of genius is factor 50, I gave this product to a friend to try who has extremely sensitive skin and burns easily especially on her nose area, the lady in question was going on holidays and would give it a try for me, and as I suspected, the report was an amazing product, it did exactly what it was designed for, ease of use clipped onto handbag, product itself was considered as excellent, not thick and takes forever to rub in not heavy either on delicate areas such as face, and nose, the factor 50 gave a wonderful sense of protection, it was reported the consistency was soft smooth not like products of a high factor looking and feeling like emulsion paint, not at all, it glided on the skin with ease and as quoted by my friend she didn’t look like Casper the friendly ghost, at last a product that gave amazing coverage and protection and ease of use, and lasts, and the ease of use, makes this little bottle of wonder my top product especially in our unpredictable weather we have these days . Well done escentual, good job
