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 swollen appearance of the rash but did nothing to make the bumpy, pimply quality go away. It's now 5 days on, I have still got the rash. I am trying to cover up as best I can and not scratch. Oh my goodness, AVOID AVOID AVOID - or at the very least do a patch test. This rash could ruin a holiday! I will never use Piz Buin again. I never write reviews on products - can't be bothered normally, but had to make an exception for this awful suncream.
