I used Piz Buin for the first time on a recent holiday. Bought the regular factor 15 and used this with good results for the first few days of holiday, spending up to 7 hours in the sun without getting any redness. I then used the one day long SPF 10, after just 2 hours in the sun I had the worst sunburn I have ever had. It looked as though I had been using no suncream at all!! Luckily I did look in the mirror after 2 hours, as if I had trusted it to last the six hours it says on the tube the results could have been a lot worse. I also got a red lumpy rash, but due to the sunburn I stopped using the cream and the rash subsided after a few days. It's scary to think that you put on your suncream trusting that it will work, only to find you have been lying in the sun unprotected.
