  1. Mikayla (verified owner)

    I’ve also tried the fluid but my dermatologist reckons the gel is the best. Pigmentation is down to a minimum. If used every day it is a game changer.

  2. Sigrid (verified owner)

    Always a favorite!

  3. Husein (verified owner)

    Great product, good protection

  4. Vanessa (verified owner)

    After trying endless sunscreen products, I finally discovered Heliocare. I am a runner and I find this product gives me full protection, even when sweating or in wet weather. It is great for sensitive eyes as well.

  5. Maireschka (verified owner)

    I absolutely love this product! I’ve used it for years now as a moisturiser. It’s light and absorbs well. I got my whole family hooked too.

  6. Nastasja (verified owner)

    This product is an absolute delight to use. It feels more like a moisturiser than a sunscreen. It leaves my skin with a dewy finish, instead of a white cast so typical of most sunscreens. I apply it to the back of my hands as well as the product is absorbed quickly. One of my favourites.

  7. Lynnette (verified owner)

    Gives my skin an amazing Glow😊
    Im hooked for life!
    I get asked about my skin all the time
    Heliocare is the best Suncreen by far!

  8. Sarika (verified owner)

    This is a regular purchase. Have tried different brands and other heliocare sunblocks, but always come back to this product. Reasonably priced and perfect consistency.

  9. Nadia (verified owner)

    Have been using this product for a few years and would highly recommend it! Its the best sunscreen on the market in my opinion!

  10. heloise (verified owner)

    I buy this product for my daughter. Love this range.

  11. Samantha

    Undoubtedly one of my favorite sunscreens.
    It also smells wonderful!! I really like how it makes my skin glow and feel.
    Really, genuinely value for money!

  12. Karishma (verified owner)

    Great sunscreen, just do not use it near the eyes.
    Causes a burning sensation.

  13. Sarika (verified owner)

    This has a great texture and skin feels moisturised after applying it. I like that it’s noncomedogenic and affordable as well. Has become a regular purchase.

  14. Husein (verified owner)

    The only sunblock my family uses. Great protection!

  15. Karishma (verified owner)

    Great sunblock however it burns my eyes if I rub my eyes forgetting that I have sunscreen on my finger tips.

  16. Tanya (verified owner)

    Still my trusty go-to after years of use. Nothing beats it’s, plus it’s a great product under makeup. No white greasy texture or runny texture like others. So it works as a makeup primer too. Love!

  17. Prianka (verified owner)

    Literally the best sunscreen I’ve ever used. Its not sticky and does not leave a grey cast over my skin. It also works great under my makeup and doesn’t burn my eyes!

  18. ellouise (verified owner)

    excellent product does not make my skin feel oily or shiny and helps a bit to hide any redness.

  19. Mpho (verified owner)

    This sunscreen was prescribed by my dermatologist. I love it although it does leave bit of a white cast. It’s not greasy and gives a smooth finish.

  20. Reginah (verified owner)

    The best sunscreen ever, it’s so smooth I like it

  21. Juanri (verified owner)

    Been struggling to find a sunscreen that doesn’t make my breakouts worse! And so fat so good!!

  22. Patricia (verified owner)

    There are sunscreens & then there is Heliocare Advanced Gel SPF50. When applying it for the first time I said: “where were you all my life?” For years I struggled finding the right sunscreen & this one is perfect – whether it’s morning or during the day after sun exposure. No greasy look like most products & it smells really great.

  23. TrishaN (verified owner)

    Love this product, it glides easily on the skin and is perfect for combination/oily skin as it doesn’t clog up the pores.

  24. Mmetja (verified owner)

    The best sun protection for me. The sunscreen is not greasy, does not clog my pores, and absorbs quickly. Additionally, it does not leave a white cast on my face.

  25. Harsha (verified owner)

    As someone with oily skin I enjoy that this formula is not greasy, sinks in quickly, and still allows you to keep your natural glow. It also does not leave any kind of white cast behind on your skin.

  26. SARAH (verified owner)

    Love that this comes in a duo-pack. I’ve been using this SPF for years and with good reason, non greasy, sinks into the skin beautifully and gives you such a nice, healthy glow :)

  27. Rathishan (verified owner)

    Great product, non greasy and a good primer for make up. Been using it for about 8 years now, no complaints.

  28. GERDA (verified owner)

    I Love this sunscreen
    It is the only sunscreen that does not make my face oily or shiny, it does not clog my pores. My makeup goes on beautifully on top of it
    I use it every day, rain or sunshine and it last me two months

  29. Shaunees (verified owner)

    Best spf ever, can’t stop using it even though I use and trial other spf’s

  30. Kate (verified owner)

    The only sun cream I use and trust on my face. Light-weight and keeps my face feeling protected and fresh daily.

  31. Natalie (verified owner)

    Looooove! First ever face sunscreen I’ve been recommended & wow! Definitely staying apart of my skin care routine for good!
    An added bonus to this product, not only is it not greasy & provides amazing protection, it smells like absolute heaven & puts the biggest smile on my face when applying it in the morning.
    Packaging is also so beautiful 🧡

  32. Lynner (verified owner)

    The ONLY sunscreen I wear. Light-weight and non-greasy. Plays well under make-up (no pilling or slipping). Smells great, and protection is amply sufficient for the South African climate. Highly recommended!

  33. Khutso (verified owner)

    Highly recommend this product !! It blends in to your skin really easily , does not leave a white cast nor an oily feeling . I’ve just ordered my second one

  34. Amy (verified owner)

    I used this sunscreen for the first time just over 3 years ago and I’ve never looked back. It’s super lightweight and doesn’t leave that oily, sticky feeling that sunscreen usually does. The coverage and protection is great and an added bonus is it smells divine!

  35. Ruth (verified owner)

    The best sun screen ever. It keeps the skin dearly protected against harsh environmental conditions. It does not even leave excessive oil on skin like other sun screens.

  36. Deserise (verified owner)

    Lovely product. I try to use it everyday. I just can’t use it near my eyes.

  37. Audrey (verified owner)

    LOVE this product… it absorbs quickly and I know that I am using the best there is. I just cannot put it anywhere near my eyes.

  38. Faeeza (verified owner)

    It’s a great sunscreen not as oily as your regular sunscreen.
    Applies easily with no white cast

  39. annemieke (verified owner)

    I finally found THE spf! I can’t go without it

  40. Eshcha (verified owner)

    I am obsessed with Heliocare! I am so glad that I’ve added this SPF to my product rotation. It absorbs quite quickly and hydrates my skin so well. I reapply my SPF every 2-3 hours and this SPF doesn’t leave my skin greasy.

    A must-buy!

  41. TrishaN (verified owner)

    There is not enough words to describe how awesome this product is. This is an everyday must use product. It is so silky smooth when applied on the skin and it does not leave a residue and is not oily on the skin. I use it before my makeup and the protection is fantastic. I highly recommend this product as it keeps my skin glowing.

  42. Alanis (verified owner)

    This SPF is an essential in my skincare routine. No white cast, goes on effortlessly & leaves my skin glowing. I have repurchased this product countless times and will continue to do so. Fantastic product.

  43. Sabina (verified owner)

    This is one of my favourite SPFs. I love the texture, it doesn’t feel like I’m putting SPF on, it doesn’t leave any white residue or smell like your generic SPF. MY GO TO!

  44. Liezl (verified owner)

    This is the first time applying sunscreen as part of my routine and so far I am happy with this product.

  45. Deserise (verified owner)

    I recommend this product. It does not clog pores and just glides on. However if I put it on too near to my eyes my eyes starts burning and gets very teary. But, otherwise it is a great product.

  46. Michelle (verified owner)

    This is by far my favourite Sunscreen! It goes on easily and doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy and gives a beautiful glow. Used it for years now and wouldn’t use anything else. Price is great and the product lasts a long time. Love it!

  47. Shaunees (verified owner)

    This is truly one of my favorites, I always keep an extra of this even when I try other sunscreens, this SPF has a lovely texture that just glides on and keeps the oil at bay during the day. Such great protection!

  48. DerryAnn (verified owner)

    This is by far my favourite SPF. It smells amazing, has a beautiful texture and doesn’t leave a white cast after application. It also doesn’t cause me to breakout and sits perfectly under makeup. Will keep repurchasing because I love it!

  49. Yvette (verified owner)

    This is my favorite spf. I have tried others but haven’t found one I like using more. It really works. This is the first summer that I haven’t had pigmentation from the sun.

  50. Ashmita (verified owner)

    This is the best sunscreen I’ve used. It’s not greasy, it doesn’t leave the skin dry or with a whitish tinge either. Highly recommended!

  51. LAURA (verified owner)

    This is my favourite sunblock to wear, as long as I’m not putting makeup on over it. Great for outdoor exercise & going to the beach! Also, great price point.

  52. Annika (verified owner)

    I used to only use the Lamella SPF 50, but was searching for a more affordable option, and now I will only use this, love the texture , glides on so easy
    New favourite suncreen :)

  53. Maxine (verified owner)

    This has to be my favourite purchase! Love the formula and slight cirturs scent. Makes my skin super radiant !

  54. Natasha (verified owner)

    Great year round product to use, doesn’t feel overly or leave a overly dry texture of feeling. Not great under makeup and my eyes have a bit of reaction when I get it too close. Can recommend if you don’t have overly sensitive eyes and don’t where foundation ect. everyday.

  55. Sascha (verified owner)

    My husband has ginger hair and freckles and is 54 years old swears by this. He uses this for MTB, out in the bush wherever he has a small version in his car. Its not greasy and perfect for him and we have gone through many many brands.
