Sunday Sun Day Volume XI: Australian Gold SPF 30 Lotion with Instant Bronzer Review

Press Sample (Affiliated Links)

Australian Gold makes so many wonderful sunscreens and sun care products, but I think that my favorite is their SPF 30 Lotion with Instant Bronzer. I stopped tanning years ago in order to avoid incurring any additional sun damage, and more importantly in order to avoid skin cancer. Living in Los Angeles means that one gets lots of sun year round, and it means that one must be vigilant about protecting one's skin. This particular sunscreen not only protects my skin from the harmful rays of the sun, but it likewise gives me a nice bronze-kissed glow. My dermatologist advised me to always wear protective clothing and an SPF of no less than 30. Therefore, I never step foot outside of my house without wearing sunscreen.

According to Australian Gold,

This broad spectrum sunscreen formula protects against UVA and UVB rays. Fortified with Kakadu Plum fruit - a native Australian extract, it provides the highest level of Vitamin C of any fruit on earth. Kona Coffee infused bronzers deliver instant bronze color for a beautiful glow even on your first day at the beach!

They further advise:

Spending time in the sun increases your risk of skin cancer and early skin aging. To decrease this risk, regularly use a sunscreen with a broad spectrum SPF value of 15 or higher and other sun protection measures including:
  • Limit time in the sun, especially from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m.
  • Wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats and sunglasses.
  • Protect yourself from UVA/UVB rays while your skin is enriched with an instant bronzer infused with Kona Coffee to deliver a radiant, sun-kissed color.
  • Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB Protection
  • Kona Coffee infused lotions provide immediate sun-kissed glow
  • Kakadu Plum Extract provides highest level of Vitamin C
  • Water Resistant 80 minutes
  • Australian Gold signature fragrance
How to Use: Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply after 40 minutes of swimming or sweating, and immediately after towel drying. Reapply at least every 2 hours.
My arm has a subtle bronze glow that neither oxidizes to an awful and unnatural orange, nor does it bleed everywhere.
