“SWOLLEN RASH AND YELLOW HEAD HELL, RUINED MY HOLIDAY”

Written on: 17/06/2012

Only applied to my face and chest. My skin went lumpy and red, then 1000 yellow heads appeared on my chest and face. The lower part of my face swelled up. Never had a reaction before to sun cream so I am taking legal advice. Just so glad I did not apply it to my kids. My cream was LOT 0392V, so if you have any bin it… Read Full Review

“another one gets the rash”

Written on: 20/05/2012 by yorkygirl (1 review written)

I used to use this before and it was a revelation - put it on when you get up and your okay in the sun all day. but they changed the formula and I'm now another one to get the rash from it. not to be underestimated, it's a killer itch that stops you sleeping and spoils your holiday. luckily I was in gran canaria and the chemists sell a great cortisone mousse, but I needed to use it for a week and a half to get rid of the rash and itching completely. if you're going to try this for your holiday… Read Full Review

Hi, I am so relieved to see your comments re: piz buin 1 day long. I did not piece this jigsaw together until yesterday, and wondered tonight am I alone! I used this lotiion last September during a 2 week holiday in Corfu. Have use P20 numerous times in the tropics and caribbean before with no issues and on my very fair skin, have faired ok. chose this product entirely because I was sick of the yellow stains from P20.
cannot tell you when exactly, but within a few days developed a horrific unsightly rash, which in the heat itched a hell of a lot! We also had been advised by our rep, because of the multitude of Mosquitos to use a well named brand of repellent, being told it was the only one which would work! coincided with application of piz buin one day long unfortunately!
I took the mosquito repellant to blame and continued to blame the rash, the itch and the ugly appearance as being from the mosi product.
it was miserable looking like you had German measles!
this weekend past I have put the same piz buin on my arms, neck, upper back as I was out gardening. Did not do my face or legs as I wore 3/4 trousers. fine on the Saturday I did it, but by Sunday tea time, I thought I had prickly heat, which is not me! (apart from the issues in Corfu). By Monday early hours I was like a cat on a hot tin roof itching, and did not know what to do with myself! by Monday morning... omg! My face around my eyes and cheeks were so swollen I looked I had aged 20 years and had facial sagging! My skin was so raised raw looking and itchy to my arms and upper chest and back of neck. (exact places cream was applied to!) I had to go to work as I had a meeting! had to apologise as my eyes felt almost closed at times and I was very self conscious!
As the morning wore on I realised it had to be the piz buin as I had exactly the same reaction as in Corfu. The only difference was the facial swelling issue with my eyes and cheeks! As a nurse I know allergic reactions etc, may present as mild in the first or second instance but a further instance could react in anaphylaxis! Not saying it would for me or you, but just be aware! This product is not good for some people at all! I have just googled to see the range of issues people have had and feel relieved to know other people have had the same issues and commented! Hope this helps someone else too!

I done this review over a year ago now and people are still using it and getting a red rash . Please please do not use it . If you are looking for a SPF use palmers SPF 15 in my eyes it's the best, and for less than £6.

I cannot praise this product enough I was sceptical at first but it works! We were in 34 degrees heat and there wasnt a sign of sunburn at all. Especially brilliant on trips out such as fun cruises etc applied before you hit the sun and thats it,fabulous darling! True my skin is trouble free and has been subjected to the sun for shall we say \"a good few years\" so I cannot fault it.

Used this product for one day. After about an hour i developed bright red rashes down both arms with raised, itchy skin. The same rash later developed on my stomach and legs. I do have sensitive skin but judging by the other reviews on this site I am definitely not in a minority of people to have experienced this condition. One of the other two people in my family to use it also developed the rash which lasted for an uncomfortable three days and ruined my holiday. I didn't get burnt but it… Read Full Review

I have suffered the same! I discovered piz buin once a few years ago and swore by it. For the first time as a redhead i returned from holidays with a wonderful tan. Last year however I developed an itching, raised rash over my entire body. Never for a moment thought it was connected to the sun cream until this year year when the same happened but with a more extreme reaction, ended up having cortisone injection. My face was so swollen and puffy. Spent the remainder of my week indoors with the air conditioning on. Two holidays messed up by this terrible to reaction. Off to my GP to see if he can help!

Written on: 05/07/2011

Piz Buin 1-Day Long Lotion and After Sun are terrible products. I applied it for the first time ever over a week ago, just for one day. Over the following week, I have suffered the most horrendous rash and swelling. I had to seek emergency treatment from a GP, as the swelling was pretty bad around my face and neck. The rash has been absolutely unbearable - I have never experienced pain or itching like it and I have distinct discolouration/scarring on my legs where some of the rash has… Read Full Review

I would like to add that this product did actually do the job it was intended for (I did not get sunburnt!); however, the pain it has caused me is just not worth it. Since the review I posted above, I have contacted Johnsson and Johnsson and they are being very helpful in investigating the bottles I used and are providing me with detailed information to take investigation further with a Dermatologist. I shall post further on the outcome!

I used this product over the period of a 5 day holiday: I thought it would be fine, why wouldn't I (although it is worth pointing out a do have quite sensitive skin)...And then after the first day a had a 'bobbley' feeling face and the backs of my ears were hot and raised. I thought it might be food, and since I didn't have any other cream, and it was 40 degree heat almost everyday, I continued to use the product (stupidly). I've since come back, and the rash behind and all over my ears is… Read Full Review

Why are the manufacturers continuing to market this product when so many people are suffering an allergic reaction when they haven't been prone to sensitive skin previously? I wrote to them last year to complain after my husband's holiday was ruined after using this product and the only response received was that I had to return the product and received a replacement hypo-allergenic cream in its place, which we would not think about using. Such a shame as we have used piz buin products in previous years with no adverse effects. I agree with the reviewer, it isn't worth taking the risk of using this product
