“BBC Watchdog tonight!!!”

Written on: 19/06/2013 by ramsbrook (1 review written)

Applied this cream on holiday last year. Suffered severe facial swelling, yellow head rash and dizzyness. Tried to sue, they tested it, said the cream was fine and I was abnormal!!! Also said they have had no other complaints in 2010 and 2 in 2011 regarding this cream, which I find hard to believe. Intrigued to see what Watchdog says tonight!… Read Full Review

Hi there.
I hope you don't mind me commenting on this. I'm a writer for the women's magazines.
Would you be interested in sharing your experience of the sun cream in order to raise awareness and help stop it happening to other people?
You would also be paid a fee.
Thanks!

“Itchy, bumpy rash - AVOID”

Written on: 13/06/2013

I used this for an afternoon's sunbathing in the garden - in the UK so we're not talking all that hot! Just applied to arms, neck, upper chest and face. By the evening I started to notice a few itchy bumps of the insides of my elbows. The following day there were a few more. Within 48 hours I was covered everywhere I had applied the cream with an itchy lumpy and blotchy rash. It was insanely itchy. Bought anti itch creams which didn't really work, then tried antihistamines which reduced the… Read Full Review

I have just had same reaction after returning from holiday 4 days ago. My arms, neck, chest & arms are a mess with lumpy blotches, red itchy spots that bleed bcz I can't stop scratching. Went to chemist & advised to mix E45 cream with a few drops of pure tea tree oil which I apply morning & night & E45 itch cream at hand during the day for when the itching starts again. My 3 week holiday in Turkiye was marred by this condition & it is only now starting to ease a little. I was also using factor 15 and will never ever use Piz Buin sun creamin my life again.

I also used Piz Buin 1 Day Long factor 30 lotion on Sunday 3rd June. I intended to cut the grass so covered my face,arms and neck. Before I'd finished I thought how hot I felt but put it down to the physical task . That evening I developed a hot,itchy bumpy rash. By Monday morning I was in extreme discomfort so went to the doctor. I was prescribed a strong anti histamine but didn't link it to the sun lotion-after all you put it on to prevent sun burn! By Monday morning my face was very swollen,hot and very itchy. I put ice packs on my face to relieve the pain/itch. I went back to the Doctor who put me on steroid tablets-st ill not linking it to the lotion-until I went onto the Internet."Helioplex" was added about 5 years ago and since then many people have had an adverse reaction to it. They have contacted Johnson and Johnson as have I. As yet with no reply. I can't understand why they still have not put a warning on and advising to do a patch test before using it. I would advise anyone to steer clear of this product.

Find this hard to beleive, I have very pake majorly sensitive skin (hubby often jokes that I'm allergic to myself!) and I have used this for the last 4 or 5 years and never had any reaction or burning with it. On the other hand I can't use ambre solair, any shops own brands or banana boat. Seems like you got very unlucky.

“Piz Buin Tan Intensifier ”

Written on: 13/06/2013

On a suggestion by a friend as I am very fair skinned and blonde with a tendency to burn before tanning, I purchased this product a couple of weeks ago just in time for the sun. I used the lotion over the week on the Wednesday & Thursday at which point I felt more than see a rash on the back of my neck. Thinking nothing of it (passing it off as a heat rash) I used the lotion again on Saturday (08/06/2013). While I was out to lunch with a friend, she politely pointed out that I was breaking… Read Full Review

“Brilliant Product”

Written on: 12/06/2013 by KaLouby (1 review written)

Myself, my husband and two daughters have used Puz Buin for over 6 years. We all have different skin types and have never had any problems. It provides excellent protection - we've never burnt and have been to some very hot countries. It is easy to apply and smells nice. We have used all types of the product ranging from SPF30 down to SPF15. I'd like to add that none of us have suffered any adverse reactions… Read Full Review

have you tried the new recipe once daily type? It contains oxy benzone which many are allergic too. I was the same having tried wide rnge of products so was very surprised to suffer terrible rash with this type of Piz Buin. Just patch test...just in case.....

We haven't used the new recipe Once Daily type, but use the In Sun Moisturising Sun Lotion a lot, which also contains oxybenzone. I'm with you though on patch testing. Better to be safe than sorry....

Written on: 13/06/2013

I had used it last year, as I had ran out of the cream I had been using, so when I developed a rash, I didn't think of the cream. Four weeks later I was in collecting a prescription and decided to ask the Pharmacist what he thought it was, as I'd had very little relief from it! My arms were full of little red blister-like lumps, which, with all the scratching, had been broken, which made them very sore aswell! but my chest was really terrible, which i'm assuming, was because that area of skin is alot more tender, as its not open to the elements all year round? The Pharmacist took one look an said "wow! That's just nasty!" When i explained I got it sunbathing 4wks previous, but had used really good cream with a high factor 30, he said it was a 'sun' alergy...despite the fact that i've been abroad 4 times previous to this without anything remotely like that happening! . He gave me antihistimines and a tube of daktacort. Now, just last week, we had beautiful weather so I decided to go to a coastal holiday town for 3-4dys. I bought Piz Buin Allergy Lotion 30, thinking i'd got the 'newly developed' sun allergy covered! Lol!, used it on the Weds, 4.20am Thurs i'm up scratching like crazy, by 8am...there was the 'oh so familar' little water blisters! Again, didn't think of the cream untill tonight! Watchdog had it as their closeing subject! Does this suncream cause rashes! I just Couldn't believe it! So, I Googled it! Lol! which has taken me to this site with your, and ALL the OTHER posts! Watchdog will be going into this in next weeks program. I live in N.Ireland so I dont know if all the UK regions are showing it, but i'm sure it would be available online...I CANT wait!

“First time that this has caused a massive reaction!”

Written on: 07/06/2013

I normally use Piz Buin on my holidays or when sat in the sun in the garden, no problems before and I have always enjoyed their products. But I tried the 'Tan Intensifier' last Saturday and, within hours, had a terrible reaction on my arms. Small blisters the same as 'prickly heat', having said that I have dark skin and normally have no problems in the sun at all. I checked the ingredients and, sure enough, they have this new 'technology' which incorporates the same Oxybenzone ingredient that… Read Full Review

“AVOID.....NOT WORTH RISKING YOUR HOLIDAY”

Written on: 06/06/2013 by Zobo15 (3 reviews written)

I brought this product because I thought it was a good make, forgot to check any reviews before using. There were 4 of us on holiday, 3 people used it all with different skin types. After 24 hours all 3 that had used it had rashes all over our faces and bodies. I have never reacted to any creams before, but the other 2 have had this type of rash with waterproof sun creams. It was horrible. Small spots that turned into water blisters that itched, especially at night. So we had to be really… Read Full Review

I'm currently on my honeymoon being kept awake by the same rash after using this cream for the first few days. I'm now in Rome going insane with it 10days later. It cannot be poor luck as one commenter has put when clearly there are a large number of allergic cases with this cream. I will be complaining the moment i get home and suggest all same rash sufferers do too. Clearly this 'reputable'company has been 'lucky' that people haven't complained enough!

Thanks Johnson & Johnson for giving this "stunningly tres chic" rash for my holiday of a lifetime in Italy. Killing the romance springs to.mind!

Have had major reaction to Piz Buin factor 15 sun cream.. Rash all over my face, extremely itchy and raised bumps. Unfortunately it's not the first time, I had slapped this cream on all over a few years ago in Cyprus and suffered the same rash all over me which took about a month to go, up scratching every night and totally ruined my holiday! This time I reached for the same cream (my husband loves the product with no ill effects) and put some on my face as I was burning sitting in the sun… Read Full Review

“Best Sun Protection”

Written on: 19/04/2013

My husband and I have been using this for about the last 8 years and have never burnt. We always allow at least 30mins before we go out in the sun and get a gentle even tan during our holidays. I loved the spf 20 but this is discontinued so we start on the spf 15 and go down to spf 10 the second week if there isnt a heatwave. It smells lovely and spreads extemely well over the skin. Having read the other reviews-it seems most bad reactions come from the spf 30 so maybe thats where the problems… Read Full Review

For the last number of years myself and my husband use Biz Buin 1 Day Long lotion on 2 sun holidays a year and any bit of sun we happen to get at home. It is brilliant and we never burn. Our daughter, who is fairskinned and redhead was using other products and burned and blistered. She started using this a few years ago factor 30 and never looked back. She goes on adventure holidays, water rafting etc. and only uses it. Our problem is that we use Factor 10 1 day lotion or if… Read Full Review

I applied this on my first day of being abroad on my own. That night I started to develop a rash on my back that was getting itchier and itchier. In the morning I woke up absolutely covered, head to toe, even my ears, in small itchy blisters. I spent the day in bed with lots of water, fruit, air conditioning and frequent cold showers trying to get better. After 2 days of this and no improvement I decided it was time to get myself to the hospital, where they looked shocked and gave me steroid… Read Full Review

As with most previous comments I to came out with a rash similar in characteristics to 'prickly heat' all over my body. It can only be the Piz Buin one day long SPF 30 product. I have no allergies to anything else. Ruined my holiday in Lanzarote. But have been helped by the hydrocortisone foam and Kalamina Lotion bought from the pharmacies here in Lanzarote. I have taken pictures of my rash. Did someone say they needed some pictures to supply evidence?? Happy to help if so… Read Full Review

I recently purchased this sun cream and applied one application to my chest and arms. At first all seemed well but within 24 hours I started to come out in a rash on my chest which then spread to my arms over a further 24 hours. I visited my doctor who agreed I had an alergic reaction and advised me to take antihistimine tablets and cream. One week later and the rash was no better and the itching had intensified. With the tablets and cream not having any effect and by this time I was in… Read Full Review

The first time I used this suntan lotion was last year, on the second day of my holiday I developed a terrible rash , I didn't associate it with the cream at first I thought it was due to something I had eaten , or something I picked up from the pool, I couldn't sleep for the next 2 months , after spending about £80 .00 on medication , & numerous visits to the Doctors it eventually disappeared not realising it was the suntan lotion that had caused the reaction I tried it again this year… Read Full Review

Your story sounds exactly like mine. I had a mysterious rash last year.. even had food testing done as was racking my brains what could have caused it! It took 6 weeks of torture before the rash eventually disappeared. On Saturday 18th Aug, I put Piz Buin on my arms, chest and top of back. When i woke Sunday morning.. I was covered in the same rash on all the areas I put cream on!! Devastated but glad at least that I now know the culprit. The doctor prescribed me anti-hestimines & itch cream... both of which are useless.. so now on steriods. Hopefully these work.. Has your rash started to die down??

I so wish I had checked this review site out before I bought this. Am on my 2nd week of a holiday in Gran Canaria. I bought Piz Buin 1 day long sun cream in factor 30 and factor 15. Week one with factor 30 I developed a great tan, probably the best I have ever had and was really pleased. I am fair skinned and can burn easily and this cream was just great. Then week 2 I switched to factor 15 and within a day I have developed a terrible rash, big lumps and bumps all over me that itch like mad and… Read Full Review
