Consumer Reports, an American magazine, tested 22 major brands and found that in general the less you spend, the better quality the cream is, reports the Daily Mail.

It concluded that the most effective were the creams which cost the equivalent of less than 88 cents per ounce.

For example, La Roche-Posay sunscreen that typically sells for 24 dollars was not as powerful as No-Ad, which retails at 7 dollars - less than a third of the price.

Overall the three best buys were among the cheapest: for an SPF of 30 Up and Up Sport was voted the best, which it sells for as little as 5 dollars.

For an SPF of 45 No-Ad with Aloe and Vitamin E was the best whilst at 50 SPF Equate Baby came tops. The cream sells for around 5 dollars.
