Used and loved by

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.”

Chuckie, Hertfordshire

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.

Reviews for SPF 30 Sun Gel

  1. 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.

  2. Jane Bothwell

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Peter

    Very good products & customer service

  7. Robert

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

  8. Craig

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

  9. Andrew

    Like the products!

  10. Simon

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

  11. Rebecca

    It’s excellent quality

  12. 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.

  13. Sarah

    Great company and love the product

  14. 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 !

  15. Kam

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

  16. Mac

    Great product

  17. Gareth

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

  18. Tim

    The product is superb

  19. 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

  20. Iain

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

  21. 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. 🇬🇧

  22. Dave

    Feels great, not greasy

  23. 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

  24. Calvin

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

  25. Rod

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

  26. 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.

  27. Chris

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

  28. 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.

  29. 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!
