For those that have been partly used, look for the “open jar” symbol on the packaging saying how many months you can use it for after opening.

READ THE LABEL: When buying sunscreen, look for a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 30 to protect against UVB, and at least four-star UVA protection.

Don’t be put off by a cheaper price tag. Aldi’s Clear Sun Sprays, 200ml, are £2.99, and claim to give five-star UVA protection with an SPF30 or SPF50+.
