I had read some great reviews about this product so decided to give it a whirl. However, similar to other sunscreens this makes my face very oily. Works great for the rest of the body. I'd recommend this product for multiple reasons as it is reef safe, provides great protection from the sun & even though it appears pricey it balances out by lasting longer. I need to find something else for my face as the oiliness caused breakouts, so no go for my face.

Skinnies SPF 30 Sungel Review
Where to buy?
Great sun protection, and a little goes a long way. Just found that it runs into eyes, and really burns. Also very oily, and make up doesn’t sit well on top op the sunblock.
Bought after recommendation from a friend. It was reasonably pricey compared to other sunscreens. Used quite one bottle which I quite liked and repurchased for an overseas trip. Used on an extremely hot day in intense sun, was somewhere with not a lot of shelter so reapplied often but unfortunately got very very burnt.
Skinnies sungel is like a sunscreen concentrate - it does not have excess water added and a little goes a long way. It has a slight light brown/yellow colour, but goes in the skin clear, so you don’t get any pastiness. You use a pea sized blob per body area, so you don’t need a lot. It has a tiny bit of a silky-type feel - not greasy, more like a body oil feel. Your skin is left with a slight sheen which looks lovely, and your skin feels nicely moisturised. Totally effective as a sunscreen - I’ve never been burned while using this and I have very fair skin. The 100ml tube lasted me a whole summer.
I got this years ago when it first came out and loved it then. Finally bought it for this summer and a little bit really does go a long way. It’s not sticky like other sunscreens where I have to wash my hands immediately after. It’s super smooth and soft. Love it.
Tried this upon recommendations and I did not like it at all. The sunscreen is very think and when rubbing in it gets very oily which is hard to remove off your hands. It sat on top of my skin the entire time but due to the stickyness the sand stuck everywhere and i had to scrub my legs etc when getting home to remove the sand and sunscreen. Also we could see ourselves getting burnt within the first 30mins of being in the afternoon sun which is very abnormal us me.
I mainly use it on my body as I have a different sunscreen for my face. I also use it on my daughter. I find that a little goes a long way. I have sunburned easily my whole life and have tried many different sunscreens. I never burn when I'm using Skinnies so I'm completely sold! It spreads easily, absorbs well, and is sweat proof. I would happily recommend it to anyone.
I bought this about two months ago. Did a patch test which was fine but when I used it on my face for the first time it stung considerably around my nose and eyes. And it felt like I had a layer of Vaseline on my face all the time until I washed it off. I never go a day without sunscreen and this cost me over $50AUD (incl. postage) so despite my better judgement I persisted for around a week. After a few days of stinging skin and stinging, watery eyes that settled down but I started getting massive pimples and clusters of black heads. I previously had some cystic hormonal acne that I had pretty much got under control through internal and external treatments and the only change I knowingly made was this sunscreen which, is still hanging around several weeks after stopping. Despite the fact that it is supposed to be non-comedogenic i have to assume it was caused by this. I emailed them a couple of weeks ago about my experience but have so far received no response. I’m not saying this is a bad product there are lots of great reviews and it’s probably great for others. I’m just saying if you are sensitive and/or acne prone please be mindful, it’s a fairly expensive product if you get stuck with a face full of acne and sensitivity and most of a bottle of product you can’t use.
we found this by mistake, fantasic sun cream, we use it just for our faces and you really do need just alittle bit. my daughter does surf life saving and we use this all the time and never have to worry,
I love the texture of this sunscreen. It is so creamy and glides into the skin nicely without leaving white residue. It is non irritating and absorbs well. I wouldn't buy second time just because I don't like ingredient list. Only a personal preference.
