Reviews for SPF 30 Sun Gel

  1. Jerry

    As a surfer I spend alot of time in the water,this is the best sunscreen I have found ,and I’ve try’d alot. Had problems with other sunscreens causing irritation to my eyes,this is great no problems at all,will recommend to my other surfing buddies.

  2. James

    Haven’t had full use yet, but so far so good. Like the branding and company purpose

  3. Guy

    Fab product. My only criticism is the containers are fiddly. Unscrewing and rescrewing with product in hand is simply not very practical. But LOVE the products generally

  4. andy

    For a guy the smell is good, non greasy, and felt great – so much better than other brands…

  5. Elma

    Very happy with the product, packaging and price point, have already recommended it

  6. Darrell

    I have already recommended it! The service is excellent and the products do what they say they do! I hate the feel of heavy or greesy creams that don’t let your skin breath – all the products I’ve tried have been unintrusive in that they are light and once rubbed in disappear!

  7. Christopher

    I like the products and have already recommended them to others

  8. Simon

    Having used it I’m impressed by its lightness (not sticky or oily) and Its absorption. You don’t feel as if it’s there, but it does give great protection from the sun. I’m not usually moved enough by any product to leave feedback, but I am by this. I will definitely be reordering.

  9. Russell

    Great suncream and not too greasy

  10. John

    Probably my biggest negative was trying to read the information on the containers. The writing was very small and the colours used did not help me>

  11. Andy

    These products do the job they claim to do really well.

  12. Danny

    I first discovered Lifejacket Sun Creams via a promo by Red Paddle Board, after ordering a small 30+ and 50+ I found them to be exactly as described, the highlighs for me were; Non greasy application, no need to wash hands after application and they do not run into and sting my eyes when sweating doing outdoor activities unlike other creams.
    I have subsequently bought a Rash Vest which not only looks great but fits well and gives me all the protection I need on my SUP.
    It is also quite exciting recieving your new purchase, what will be in the box/bag, personal note from Jono, never had one of them from Bezos!

  13. Andrew

    Love you stuff… perfect to tuck away on my paddle board

  14. Owen Kieran

    The product is good, it is easy to apply and soaks in quickly. My only improvement would be to have a clip lid as opposed to a screw top. When applying I’ve had some leakage from the bottle when laid down. Other than that I can’t fault it

  15. Kris

    Purchased as traditional sun lotions make my skin greasy and spot prone.

    Highly recommend Lifejacket, applies like a sun lotion but completely non greasy & pleasant scent.

    Stops me getting scorched as well!

  16. Nigel

    Always looking for a good waterproof sun gel, well I can stop looking, this stuff is just the best, it rubs in brilliantly, protects my skin from the sun and smells ace, what’s not to love. Will definitely be having some more. If I use all this it means one thing, the weather is great.

  17. Phillip

    Excellent moisturiser and sun cream. Good on and absorbs really well, 100% non-greasy. Package fits through the letterbox too.

  18. Jonathan

    Great value, service and personalised feedback

  19. Tom

    You’re awesome , your mission is so personal but so relevant whilst being so under appreciated by men. Thank you for persevering in getting your message out to the masses through such excellent products.

  20. Jane

    I think the product is very good

  21. Andrew

    This product left my skin feeling great, not at all greasy and soaked in really well. Definitely recommend!

  22. Jane Bothwell

    Very good product and it is NOT greasy,
    which for my personal use ( Golfer ) is very important

  23. Matthew

    A product that offers the protection I need, that is deigned for men, is easily absorbed and non-greasy – what’s not to like.
    I had originally bought for use when on my bike but now use it all of the time. Will definitely buy again and will definitely try other products – would happily recommend.

  24. Marie

    love the bright modern packaging.

  25. Gordon

    Not only are the products up there with the best, the packaging is great as it can be used for other things (like going camping or a day hike). Also the hand written note makes it a more personal experience

  26. Paul

    I find this sun gel is great for everyday use, I have facial hair and this evaporates off and doesn’t leave me looking like Santa, highly recommend. Look after your skin fellas.

  27. John

    Quick delivery, great packaging, perfect product at reasonable price

  28. Matt Bennetto

    I have a life long hate of putting on sun cream, especially if I can’t wash my hands, this is different, feels great not greasy , very impressed- would recommend, the sun seems to be getting stronger, finally I am using the right protection.

  29. Tony

    Great sun protection, & unlike every other sunscreen I have used, this one doesn’t sting your eyes when when you get a sweat on. Well done Jono & team.

  30. Greg

    Great company ethos, I believe in the mission and I’m really impressed with the service too. The products have been well thought out and formulated too so it’s a nice change form being just all about the image. I also like to support smaller businesses and will happily recommend good experiences to others to help them grow

  31. Jonathan

    Love what you guys are about – from your mission, to the products, to the service. Well done.

  32. Scott

    Great mission with super products and a real personal feel to the shopping experience. Support the team, do good and look after yourself. What’s not to like?!

  33. Richard

    The moisturisers feel great…not sticky which is essential in Japan’s hot and humid spring / summer. Also smell great…very subtle but nice and fresh. The sunblocks work much better than any of the sprays / lotions I can buy here. Non-sticky, stay on during exercise but also wash off easily enough with soap and a body towel (essential when trying to follow up exercise in the sun with a soak in a hot spring!)

  34. William

    You always have to do better!

  35. Peter

    Your mission to combat skin cancer

  36. Peter

    Very good products & customer service

  37. Robert

    Great sun gel absorbs into the skin quickly and lasts hours perfect for the golf course and long coastal walks

  38. Craig

    Good brand and products, so what’s not to like. You’re looking after yourself and supporting a sustainable brand as well.

  39. Andrew

    Like the products!

  40. Simon

    Very happy with both products (Daily Protection Moisturiser and the SPF 30 Sun Gel)

  41. Rebecca

    It’s excellent quality

  42. Derek

    It’s the first product I have found that isn’t greasy and sticky. It gets absorbed into the skin. Not just on it.

  43. Sarah

    Great company and love the product

  44. Phill

    Happy with the products. I think it’s important to look after my skin. Most of our friends work in the outdoors. Very impressed with the presentation to British Mountain Guides last year. It highlighted to me the importance of using suntan / moisturising cream. Thank you !

  45. Kam

    Great smelling product, brand focusing male USP and great customer service.

  46. Mac

    Great product

  47. Gareth

    I have sensitive skin and eczema, and these products do NOT have a detrimental effect!awesome

  48. Tim

    The product is superb

  49. Deano

    Fantastic sun cream. Absorbs excellently. Doesn’t leave streaks through hair and gives great protection without smelling over powering. Good value. Brilliant service. 5/5

  50. Iain

    Really good product. Absorbs quickly non greasy – and doesn’t run into the eyes when you sweat… very important on the bike!

  51. GUY

    First time I’ve ever been excited to wear sunscreen! Gel works great and goes a long way. Packing and branding is brilliant, flying the sun protection flag for men. Love that all the products are crafted in the UK. 🇬🇧

  52. Dave

    Feels great, not greasy

  53. Paul

    Honestly, this is so much better than gels I have used in the past. Goes on easily, no need to rub and rub and rub, just leave it a minute and it is “gone”. Incredible

  54. Calvin

    Finally!!!!! A product for guys. Cheers LifeJacket

  55. Rod

    Game changer. I typically hate putting suncream on as it leaves my hands greasy but this doesn’t. I’m a convert.

  56. Sophie

    I originally bought this for my husband who comes up with every excuse not to use sun creams. He loves it and I actually use it myself. He is also quite hairy and thinks works fantastically for him.

  57. Chris

    Great sun protection – easy to apply, rubs in easily & nice smell!

  58. Duncan

    I’ve only used the sun protection and that worked well. Not at all greasy, which was great. Haven’t tried the moisturiser yet but looking forward to giving it a go.

  59. George

    I have recently bought a bottle of high sun gel. As a man this product is perfect!

    It’s very easy to apply (even on my hairy chest), it smells good, and I love the packaging. The bottle is pretty flat so it fits in my spongebag easily and all the advice and stories on the Life Jacket website is invaluable.

    It’s far superior than all the other sun creams I’ve used and I’ve got a strong feeling I’ll be a life-long customer. Thanks a million!

Skin science

A burning issue for men

Almost twice as many men die from skin cancer compared to women. Male skin cancer cases have exploded over the past 20 years and they’re forecast to double over the next 20 years.

It's chemistry

UVA rays penetrate your skin damaging the proteins that give your skin structure, causing ageing and wrinkling. UVB damages the outer skin causing sunburn. Together they're a cause of cancer.

Putting your jacket on

Real skincare should protect you from both harmful UVA and UVB rays. Rays touch your skin all year long, even in the winter. Apply skin protection all year round and stay healthy.

Our mission is to halt skin cancer amongst men and to do this we need to offer high performance products men enjoy using. So far, the feedback has been positive…..

“These guys have come up with a terrific product which appeals to me, and many other men who have in the past shied away from using sun creams. Easy to apply, works really well and the branding is superb.”

Simon, London

“I was keen to try the Life Jacket sun gel as I always struggle with normal sun protection due to my sensitive, eczema prone skin, but this is noticeably different. It causes me no irritation and no greasiness on my hands.”
