When SunSense asked me to write an article about my experience with malignant melanoma I hesitated a bit at first.
I was nervous about sharing my story on a large website rather than on my own blog, but to be honest it didn’t take too long before I gave myself a stern talking to and came to the conclusion that if my story could help encourage others to be more sun safe and thus prevent them from developing skin cancer, then I should do it!
I admire SunSense as a company and the great job they do in educating the community on the importance of protecting themselves and their families against sun damage. I also genuinely love and use SunSense sunscreens on myself and my family on a regular basis, not just when they are gifted to me. It was these two additional factors that helped make the decision to share my story on the SunSense website even easier.
SunSense is a trusted Australian brand of sunscreen with so many different options available to suit every body. Whether you are looking for a spray, a roll on, a cream, a lotion or a gel, whether you want a sunscreen specifically for sensitive skin or specifically for your face, SunSense has one to meet your needs. SunSense even have an anti-ageing matte finish SPF 50+ sunscreen with an invisible tint which is one of my favourites!
All SunSense sunscreens are fragrance free, dermatologically tested and suitable for sensitive skin. they also all contain Vitamin B3, an ingredient that is showing impressive benefits to the skin.
All SunSense sunscreens meet my needs for a trusted, effective, easily absorbed, broad spectrum sunscreen with a very high SPF.
As a result of the above, rather than being nervous anymore, I’m actually excited about being featured on the SunSense website and I sincerely hope that it encourages everyone reading the article to be more sun aware and sun safe than I used to be. Learn from my childhood mistakes!
