Worst Sunburn i have ever had. Do not buy!
I purchased this product from coles. it was a factor 50.
I am very stringent in applying sun-cream for myself and children. We went to the beach which wasn't the hottest of days. We were only there about 3 hours and we applied the cream regularly. I have the worst sunburn i have ever experienced and couldn't go out of the house for 4 days as i couldn't were underwear or clothes as i was just too sore. I am on the 6th day and i am still sore and peeling. When i lived in the UK we used to go on holiday to enjoy the sun and i have never had real...
Disgusting this is cancer council sunscreen
Both my husband and I used this sunscreen liberally whilst out at the beach for 2 hours. We were both burnt despite the application. Thankfully we had applied another brand to our 20 month old toddler who did not get burnt. This sunscreen is going in the BIN! Will never buy again.

Cancer Council Ultra SPF50+ applied more than recommended, yet we all still burned
This item should not be on the shelves! We purchased this as it was on sale, in future we wont be making that mistake again. We all applied this product generously and well within the 2 hours recommended yet we all still badly burned to the point of blisters! My wife used another companies SPF50+ on her face which completely protected her face but the rest of her body is severely burned with blisters
Should not use if you live in any climate with heat
Here I am thinking I’ll enjoy a nice summers day in my backyard. I apply the spf 50 sport sunscreen, wait 30 minutes because I I’ve been caught out by that trick before. Go out in my garden thinking I’m going to be well protected by the lotion, I am very wrong. Two days later I’m applying prescribed steroid cream because I have 2nd degree burns to my back and legs. If anything this sunscreen magnifies UV, definitely do not recommend.
In Noosa and using Ultra 50+. My wife had burnt shoulders despite detailed thorough application. I got badly burnt so was particularly cautious today. Now I’m even worse. I have never left poor reviews of products but this is a warning to those looking to purchase this. I’m binning the $50 spent on a variety of these products and going back to Hamilton, a product I never should have left but thought Cancer Council would be the absolute best. How wrong I was. Just glad it was me and not my 3 year old and 4 month old sun.
Please do not use! Horrible rash on my son's face.
We have the Cancer Council 50+ sunscreen and it has left my son with a horrible rash on both his cheeks a day after using said sunscreen - he looks like he has slapcheek it's that bad. His skin is red raw and bumpy. I'm horrified and I'm kicking myself I didn't read any reviews before purchasing. It's going in the bin. Please don't use this on anyone especially your children.
Problems when trying to use..Will not purchase again.
I carry sunscreen in my excursion pack to top up protection periodically during the day..
Two years ago I got caught short when on two occasions the 50+ roll on would not apply. That's 2 failures. The manufacturer replaced and a bit more after I returned to Australia.
This year same again with the 50+ Active Dry touch. The pump would not deliver product as it had congealed inside. This was extremely annoying particularly as it was thrice burnt and now forever shy of using Cancer Council sunscreen again. Replacement product was offered but declined
Do not buy Cancer Council sunscreen
I recently went to Sumatra and bought the Cancer Council Watersport 50+ sunscreen. I got fried for the first two days and then started using my friends’ sunscreens - 3 different brands. I did not get burnt again. This is a terrible product. It is astonishing that the Cancer Council gives their name to a product that could increase your chance of cancer.

Questions & Answers
I applied Cancer Council 50+ yesterday afternoon and inadvertently rubbed it into my left eye. The stinging was painful and I was unable to open my eye for several hours. I did wash it out with water which helped a little. However this morning my eye is still not right and my vision is blurry. What can I do?
I am using Cancer Council SPF50+, particularly on my arms when I play golf.
This season I have had a sharp reaction: blotchy red marks, skin irritation, itchiness. In previous years I have used a different brand with NO reaction at all.
Is it the Cancer Council sunscreen? I don't know, but can't think of any other possible source. It has been persisting for a month now, and has barely eased after I stopped using the sunscreen and took to wearing long sleeved shirts.
Next stop is to see my doctor.
having purchased Cancer Council 50+ sport sunscreen as the usual brands of Ego and Hamilton that I buy were not available I have been disgusted and appalled. Used it for the first and last time yesterday and got extremely burnt whilst outdoors and not in direct sun for a little over an hour. I have had the skin condition of vitiligo for most of my life, 42 years so the lack of protection was especially damaging. I would like to know why this product is even on the market given your lack of reputable quality testing, or at least clear and explicit warnings at point of sale.
