ELLA BACHE: Suncare Formulated For Australia’s Harsh Climate


Suncare is an important step to include in your skincare routine. Whether you are indoors for most of the day or out and about, sunscreen should be one of your top 3 priorities. Other 2 includes hydration and staying indoors away from the sun where possible. The Ella Bache suncare products have been formulated to protect our skins from the harsh Australian climates. It doesn’t mean that we should only apply sunscreen during summer time, but every single day of the year—rain, hail, cloudy or shine.

Great SPF50+ BodySaver Lotion 130ml $49* (discontinued)

The great spf50+ bodysaver lotion is a 4 hour water resistant sunscreen lotion suitable for face and body, with a UVA/B broad spectrum protection. It is enriched with lanolin, macadamia nut oil and squalane derived from olive oil to help keep skin feel soft, moisturised and hydrated. It also contains a range of super-fruit antioxidant complex of pomegranate, cranberry, grape seed and vitamin E that is said to enhance skin’s protective barrier.

The bottle has an easy pump dispense, which I prefer as this is easy and less messy for application purposes. The sunscreen has a light but rich texture, non-sticky feel, smells fresh and not a typical sunscreen that has an overwhelming chemical harsh scent. Be warned, this product has recently been discontinued and has been replaced.

Active Lotion Great SPF50+ 130ml $39*

The new active lotion great spf50+ is the replacement from the previous great spf50+ bodysaver lotion (can be used for face and body, minis the eye area). They contain the same ingredients, but a few tweaks have been made, like it is $10 cheaper, it now comes in a soft squishy tube, making this more suitable specifically for water sports and not just leisurely going to the beach or the local pool.

Just like the previous product, this has a fresh scent, non-sticky feel and lightweight that absorbs quickly. It keeps skin feel moisturised and hydrated and best to top up every 4 hours to continuously keep skin protected from the sun and uv rays. This product can be used from 12 month old babies and over.

Great SPF50+ FaceSaver Lotion 50ml $49*

The great spf50+ facesaver lotion is perfect for everyday as the final step in your skincare routine or a step before makeup. It is enriched with shea butter, vitamin E, green tea and antioxidants great seed extracts to hydrate and help enhance skin’s protective barrier. It is lightweight and contains high protection, smells just the same at the other body suncare. It leaves a fresh, dry matte finish that is non-sticky and no white cast often seen in other branded facial sunscreens. It has been formulated without parabens or alcohol.

Overall, I have enjoyed using these new sunscreens. I much prefer the discontinued body lotion only because of the package. The face lotion have since been incorporated into my morning skincare routine and it’s been great without any breakouts. You can find the full range of Ella Bache’s suncare online and in store at David Jones, selected spas and via: nationally.
