You're not the only one mate. I normally take factor 50 sun cream to festivals and burn like a bastard anyway. I swear I must be like the world's whitest man :lol:

You are supposed to reapply it every few hours anyway.

I recently got some Nivea expensive shit that is weird though, not a cream but more like a thin liquid and smells like Jaegermeister. I started spraying it on and had to stop and work out if I had decanted a bottle of jäger into it to smuggle it through the customs or not :p it worked though so jäger might be a brilliant sunscreen.

Exam tomorrow. Shitting bricks. Never been this nervous about an exam, especially considering I've done more work for this one than for most. :s

Not to spoil your parade, but sunscreen is pretty much useless from SPF15 upwards.

SPF2 blocks 50% of the UV
SPF15 blocks about 95%
SPF30 blocks about 97%

:P

Yay for being half Iranian. I rarely burn, and if I do then it just heals into a tan within a day or two. Never had bad sunburn, even in well over 40C

I always reapply it every hour or so, plus I buy suncreams that are specifically for your so it actually sinks in as opposed to going all greasy and rubbing off. Despite being ginger and very pale I don't actually burn much due to being careful.

I burn/tan. Deffo taking the highest factor cream I can find. Thought about going topless to even out the possible farmer's tan...
