I am obsessed with sunscreen so I jumped at the chance of testing out Dr Sam’s Flawless Daily Sunscreen. It joins Sam’s existing and already celebrated cleanser and moisturser and is set to be a big success. Here’s what you need to know.
Dr Sam is a big advocate of sunscreen and I am there with her. As far as I am concerned it is the first and most important step in anti-ageing. In order to make it a part of daily life, finding the right formula for you is key.

This is a lovely product and I have been using it every day for a couple of weeks now I think. But before I get into my thoughts on it, I just wanted to share something interesting that Sam has said about the use of sunscreen.
She says, “it’s now proven to not only prevent future premature ageing but to actually improve existing wrinkles, pigmentation and texture. Because it turns out if you free skin up from the ‘distraction’ of needing to protect itself from UV rays, it gets down to the business of repair.”
Although I had never thought about the use of sunscreen in this way before, it makes perfect sense to me and is a really convincing argument when it comes promoting its daily use. If you use SPF, your skin can focus on repair instead of defence. Excellent!
Dr Sam’s Flawless Daily Sunscreen – My Thoughts
The texture is really lovely. Although fairly thick as it is dispensed, it quickly melts into the skin, disappearing really quickly. It leaves my complexion looking glowy and fresh, and my foundation glides on perfectly over the top.
I love the stuff. Good work Sam!
