Wow , this is amazing, thought I was the only one with a bad reaction to the new Piz Buin Formula!
Have used Piz Buin since many years great protection, am very fair skinned, burn easily, but could hang out on the beach all day no problem-- always used same cream (SPF 30) but have noticed 2 years ago, that they have added a new incredient--so the same year,on the beach,after application was 2 hours in the late afternoon sun ( 4pm-6pm)immediately noticed some little bumps on my arm appeared, which after about 1 hour spread , itchy, next morning was ALL over my body,very painfull rushed to doctor, got cortisone injection and some anti allergy pills had to take for 7 days ( No drinks allowed..)--next day rash was still going strong --back to doctor second cortisone injection--
spend rest of holiday buying expensive sun creams against allergies and crouched under umbrella with long t'shirt for protection--total paranoya,as didn't understand what is going on, what's the reason? only back home discovered was the cream--obviously to late by then TOTALLY ruined my Holiday--THANK YOU PIZ BUIN!
Pff, that was two years ago, sorry had to vent as still affected by trauma..Cream needs to be taken off shelfs now, as by the look of it is still in circulation October 2010.--Back to old formula
