I used this cream on Sunday and even today I am still so itchy with the same angry red rash, which I would liken to a very severe prickly heat sensation? I used the 1 day long factor 15 which I brought new on Saturday. I thought it was just me having a bit of a bad reaction so I am really shocked to see that so many people have e-mailed after suffering the same problem! I have used Piz Buin for years, but I won't touch it again.

I also had an allergic reaction to this product. Having thrown the box and leaflet away, I have been trying to find an ingredients lists - and can't even find the product on the Piz Buin website!
My rash continued to get worse even after stopping using the cream and the Spanish doctor gave me antihistamine and steroid tablets, which have worked. Taking the steroid tablets was horrible, but an improvement on the rash!
I have never experienced any allergic reaction to any products before… Read Full Review

My husband and me have been using this product for quite a few years and we thought it was brilliant - that is until this year when we ran out of tubes of the older formula. In April this year we started on the new formula lotions and I developed a raised rash on my forearms and chest which has now spread to my upper arms. As I have Lupus and my husband wasn't affected I naturally thought I had a lupus flare-up although I had never been affected by the sun before.
I checked the tube of Piz… Read Full Review

I used Piz Buin once a day for thre first time in April on a holiday in Egypt. That evening i noticed my face and body was itchy but showered and thought nothing of it. The following morning I could not open my eyes. My whole face had swollen and i looked like i had been in a fight. I had slits for eyes, Marge Simpson lips and what looked like cauliflower ears. I had an all over red itchy rash that looked like tiny pin pricks.The pharmasist took one look at me and said suncream re-action.I had… Read Full Review

I am trying to work out why I am covered - and I mean absolutely covered - in a red rash. I was concerned that I may have developed an allergy to the suncream I was using, or to sunshine itself. I am appalled to be online looking at the number of other Piz Buin users covered in a similar sounding rash. Like many others I bought Piz Buin as I consider it a brand to be trusted. I haven't used it for a few years, and I utterly regret buying it. I ended up staying out of the sun for the last 2… Read Full Review

As numerous other people have said in their reviews this product now seems to cause a severe rash in some people including my son. We used it many times in the past without problem but last year, 2009, it caused my son to suffer from a very itchy rash. In short avoid… Read Full Review

I used to absolutely love Piz Buin sun cream. It is non-greasy and was a reliable sun screen. Unfortunately, I would now say DON'T RISK IT! Piz Buin have changed their formula and the product now gives me a severe itchy and very sore rash for a week after use. The rash spread over most of my body. I would pass it off as being 'just me' but after 2 weeks of holiday, my husband (who has the least sensitive skin ever!) also developed the rash. It was only on his ears whereas mine spread all over… Read Full Review

I too have had the same reaction, only on the areas I put the cream. I have just returned from the pharmacist and she said that the ingredient that is likely causing this reaction is methylparaben. It is also in other suncreams so check that out when you are buying others..
I hope this rash goes down!… Read Full Review

I also have had problems with the 1 day long cream, i tan very easily and never suffer from prickly/heat rash. However on moving to Australia i thought that i should protect myself more and started to use 1 day long cream. i used it on my arms, chest and neck (thank god not my face). Everything was fine for a couple of days then i came out in a red raised rash thats very itchy. At first i put it down to a heat rash, but nothing seemed to budge it. It was only talking to people about it, when… Read Full Review

I have been using Piz Buin for many years and having suffered from very sensitive skin all my life i was relieved that i had found this product until this year. I bought the allery lotion 30 with the soothing aftersun and have been in agony since using. Raised red patches, hard sore lumps and bumps and very itchy on my face, neck and shoulder and legs. I am taking anti histamine at the moment but will have to seek medical advice if things haven't improved in a couple of days. Please, please… Read Full Review

I have used Piz Buin 1 Day Long sun lotion twice. I tan easily and do not have sensitive skin. I have used other Piz Buin sun creams before. The first time I used it was in August, 2009. I developed a severe rash over most of my body, which was extremely itchy and aggravated by the heat (not good if you are in a hot country). At that time, following a visit to the hotel doctor, it was believed that I was allergic to the anti-malaria tablets I was taking and that they were the cause of the… Read Full Review

My husband and I both suffered from severe allergic reaction to this on our summer holiday this year. My husband, who has more sensitive skin than me (I've never suffered a reaction to anything), suffered the worst - its worth noting that it seems to take a few days for the reaction to occur - we thought at first it was prickly heat but it soon became apparent that it was an allergic reaction. I thought I'd escaped till the last few days of the holiday when I came out in itchy rash too. We… Read Full Review
