People in englisch speaking countries don't use the word "cream" to describe any type of lotion or skin care, so it wouldn't really make sense for them to do it here. Shrug

If it was for that, I don't think they would use the terms day cream, night cream, anti-ageing cream, bb cream, and so on which they do. Derpy confused

I guess, it's meant to be a universal term for all kinds of products, that protect you from the sun. After all, there is more available than 'just' cream. You can also get oil, spray, lotion, gel, foam...

This also gets reflected in some English-German dictionaries. There, you will find "Sonnenschutz" or even "Sonnenschutzmittel" as the most appropriate translation. Makes sense. After all, there is no way of telling, if someone talking about "sunscreen" refers to a cream or something else. Thus, translating it as "Sonnencreme" would be too specific. The broader term "Sonnenschutz" leaves more room for variation.

Also, according to the Oxford Dictionary, the term "sun cream" actually does exist in English. It is just uncommon to use it.

Hearing the term I would rather associate it with the protective covers for your car windows rather than the lotion. Since my last post, I started some research on that subject, and apparently it's called sunscreen because they categorize those protective lotions by two types; sunscreen absorbs UV rays whereas sunblock prevents them from entering, sun cream and lotion could refer to either. AJ hmm

RE: the english Laberthread (the fine british way!)
Before i spoke english in 2017 for the first time, i always thought i could never learn this language. i always thought i would be to dumb for that, but in 2016 i had finally the motivation to learn english. i watched mlp fim in english and i also, watched a lot of english youtube videos in 2016 during that time. it took me a while to understand the english words and sentences, but after a while i was finally able to understand this language. and one year later in 2017 i was finally ready, to speak english for the first time and it was great. i made youtube videos back in that time, because i thought this could be the best way, to find out how good my english really is and it was very good. i am still so glad that i had the motivation, to learn this great language and i am also so glad that i taught it myself.

... even in english did you fail with the punctuation. Seems hopeless; but, i can say, that even a lot of americans can't even write english good enough - and no, i don't even try to look at other things like grammar or writing mistakes from your text. The only thing what i can say is: that you wrote "too german"... And that isn't a bad thing.

Another evening, another day done. Eeyup There are a lot of tests coming up for me in the next few weeks, but it's ok, it's getting close to the exams. And the good thing is, I don't have to go to school on friday! Cheerilee awesome Only learning at home, which I always prefer because I learn better at home than in school. And the weekend will be nice, because on friday, the UCS AT-AT is finally launching! Cheerilee awesome It's brutally expensive, but I can't help myself, I waited for this a long time! Pinkie happy So, enjoy your evening, guys! Twilight smile
