“Nothing else will do”

Written on: 17/09/2013

I have fair skin and have to take care in the sun, but every year I get to spend 3 weeks all day everyday in the sun in Mozambique without ever burning and I still get to come home with a wonderful tan. I use it all over - remember you must apply it to dry skin at least 15 minutes before exposure to sun - in and out of the sea all day without having to reapply… Read Full Review

“Terrible product”

Written on: 14/09/2013

Bought factor 30 and used past week in Spain. Burnt to a cinder. Spoke to sun care rep at hotel who told me the alcohol in it (listed as first ingredient) dries out skin and number of chemicals in affect quality of protection when you sweat. She recommended buying a screen where aqua is listed as first ingredient. For a factor 30 I thought I was being careful but ruined my holiday. Threw rest out and will never put near my children's skin… Read Full Review

“P20 stains clothes”

Written on: 15/08/2013 by MichaelaTulipMills (1 review written)

It may protect you from the sun but it stains clothes, linen, towels even plastics. No stain remover works either. So be warned! As hotels and villa owners will likely charge you for the damage caused to their property or you will need to replace an expensive shirt ( it loves anything white!)… Read Full Review

“Absolutely Dreadful - Not what it used to be! ”

Written on: 13/08/2013 by Fee73 (1 review written)

We purchased P20 (Factor 30) for our 10 year old son to take on holiday to Turkey this year. I am absolutely horrified by the results and will be contacting Riemann directly. We applied the spray correctly and gave it an hour to soak in rather than the recommended 15 mins before going into sun. According to the instructions it provides 10 hours protection. Our son played in the pool for a few hours and wore a t-shirt between 11.30am and 3pm. The poor soul had the most horrendous sunburn on… Read Full Review

“P20/P30 Suncream”

Written on: 12/08/2013 by poppydog21 (1 review written)

My family have just been to my home in Spain and brought with them your creams P20 and P30. I would like to know what ingredient is in the cream that leaves anything white discoloured to a yellow. Both parents and children had clothes stained this way also my white toilet seat is also coloured yellowy which will not be removed with a strong bleach even. This has happened before when family came last year but I wasn't aware of it as I didn't wash any of their clothes. I soaked a new white… Read Full Review

“Used on my daughter since she was two years...”

Written on: 18/07/2013 by VLM1980 (1 review written)

I took my daughter on h first holiday abroad when she was 2 and we went to the south of France. She has blonde hair and is very fair so I was worried about sun burn. P20 is the best buy ever! For two weeks she was running about in and out of the pool and never burnt once! She is now 12 and this year I tried a different make of "once a day" sun cream as it was cheaper.....my poor daughter burnt and she actually blistered and has scares on her shoulders! I feel so guilty so don't be tempted into… Read Full Review

“Great Product”

Written on: 08/07/2013

I used this a couple of years ago while in Turkey in August. My family and I put it on 20 minutes before going outside for the day. We swam and laid under the sun for 7+ hours and got beautiful tans without burning. We all came back tan and even and looking perfectly sunkissed. I would recommend this to anyone going to extremely hot climates and who doesn't want to worry about applying and reapplying a hundred times a day… Read Full Review

“Never again”

Written on: 14/06/2013

Used this product for the first and last time, it stung my eyes and left an oily residue even after leaveing to dry longer than the recomended time. I didnt like the smell and it stained light coloured clothes and ruined them and even melted my nail polish you would need to wear rubber gloves when appying it to avoid this problem. I did burn slightly maybe I should have used a factor higher than 20. The only plus point to this product is the once a day application but the cons outway the one… Read Full Review

“Dissappointed with SPF50+”

Written on: 13/06/2013

The P20 SPF50+ did stop me burning but every outfit that I wore has been ruined as I cannot get the stains out. I followed the instructions but when you are in a hot country you sweat and then the P20 rubs onto your clothes… Read Full Review

“A new container for 2013!!!!”

Written on: 08/06/2013

I have used P20 for at least 10 years with no problem apart from the staining, which is well documented & disappears once dry However the makers have brought out "a new & improved container" it is disastrous, it now has a flip lid to allow the liquid to be poured, it just pours out and the outer cap has been replaced by a snap on lid from the screw variety, I would suggest that you keep your old bottle and continue to use that, I have gone through more P20 in a week than I previously did in 3… Read Full Review

“SPF 50+ P20 Spray - So Far, So Good”

Written on: 09/04/2013 by snapdragon777 (2 reviews written)

As a very fair-skinned person who's going to live on the equator for a while, I'm testing out a good few sunscreens. So far this one scores highly, although I've only had a chance to test it on a British sunny day, not an African one! I've tested carefully for the other issues people have mentioned - irritation, oiliness, staining - but didn't find any disadvantages that would outweigh the light feel, all-day protection and high SPF. In detail: I didn't react, so I assume some people are… Read Full Review

Have you tried Ultrasun? This is a top end once a day product at a similar price point and doesn't leave any stains! Recommended by professionals also. thesuncareshop.com has a great range at good prices with the added bonus of uk delivery!

I used P20 about 8 years ago for all the family when abroad and it was excellent. I have just purchased P20 spf10 recently and it is not the same as the original formula. It is sticky and has stained and ruined a pair of expensive white trousers. Really disappointed with it and have recommended P20 to others but will no longer recommend it or buy it!

“Amazing!”

Written on: 24/02/2013

I have fair skin and easily burn. Over years of holidaying I have used every sun cream, high factors and often applying and yet still burn. I was very wary about using this lotion once a day and I could not believe it, not once did I burn and I was in and out the pool and never thought twice about reapplying. I even got a brilliant tan! Def recommend this!!… Read Full Review

“All Day Sun Protection”

Written on: 21/12/2012

I recently used P20 Factor 20, I applied it myself to my legs and arms, then to my husbands back. I suffered a violent reaction on my hands, I was left with red bumps, which were so painful, both hands felt as if they were on fire, and my skin felt really thin, a week later I have the remains of the blisters as evidence and hard callouses as if I have been burned. I was in Grenada and managed to get some cortisone cream from the pharmacy, which did certainly calm it down. I will never buy this… Read Full Review

Cusochris's Comment

Written on: 10/06/2013

Omg the exact same thing happened to me. I thought it was because I seem to have a lot of allergies, but clearly I'm not the only one to react. I don't usually do patch tests over 48 hours like they tell you to, but my husband suggested I do cause the lotion goes over a large area of skin. I rubbed in the lotion on the back of my hand and initially just felt a slight burn and itch which seemed to ease. Twenty four hours later I woke to find large chemical type burns over the area I rubbed the lotion on. I must have rubbed the skin off of the blisters when I washed first thing and the result is a number of very sore and hot scabs, which are unbelievably sore to touch and when I move my hand. It scares me to think what could have happened if I had used the lotion over the rest of my body.

“What's happened to P20?”

Written on: 11/08/2012 by mj73 (1 review written)

I am so disappointed. After years of using P20 and singing it's praises to everyone I will never use it again. Used it on holiday this year, hadn't been abroad for a couple of years so was unaware that the formula had changed and boy has it changed. Left a really oily film on skin, whereas previously it left no residue on skin after application. It's stained all our light clothes to the point that I have had to throw all the white items away as it's totally ruined them. This was never a problem… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/01/2013

I used this years ago and found it very good even in the heat of August in Tenerife, so when i was going to New Zealand I decided to try it there> I was doubtful that it would work as well there as there is little ozone rotection but it worked every bit as well and I didn't burn once! I did notice that it was more oily than previously but did eventually dry off. I would use it again and recommend it but there is the slight drawback of white items getting marked but it wasn't too bad.

“Riemann P20 stained our swimming pool”

Written on: 14/07/2012 by eddieF322 (1 review written)

Recent visitore used Riemann P20 sun cream every day, and swam in our chlorinated pool, which has a white-painted wall which runs up asnd over to provide a white outline about a foot wide around the pool. From day 2, the waterline was stained a brown/yellow colour, and this required vigorous scrubbing to remove. This had to be done every day, to the point where we basgan to become concerned about the paint thinning. Immediately our visitors departed, the problem ceased.

Just came back from a week in Turkey with a case full of stained clothes. We have used P20 in the past but this year found clothing stained easily, also bedding and towells. I still have stains on my hands and fingernails. I would not recommend anyone to use this if you want to wear light coloured clothing, buy an alternative… Read Full Review
