“Rubbish. Don't buy. Unless you want sunburn!”

Written on: 17/06/2014 by Moorishidol (1 review written)

This was about as effective as wearing no sun protection whatsoever. Got very badly burnt on my first day of the holiday in not especially hot weather in gran canaria. I used the SPF20 one day long product. Purchased from sainsburys. The clear lotion itself goes on very well and sinks into the skin very quickly, no need to rub like other creams. I am olive skinned and rarely burn. But compared to my partner who was wearing Piz Buin one day long sun cream I looked like a lobster at the end of… Read Full Review

“NOT Recommended”

Written on: 04/06/2014 by Elizabethn1954 (1 review written)

Having used once a day products in the past and had good experience we know how to use them and were confident we did so this time, but having just come back from 10 days in Egypt, our experience with this products was bad. Normally I would use a lower factor, 25 or 30 but wanted to be sure in this weather so went for the 40. This was a mistake, both my children and I burnt quite badly using this and had to switch to another. We had to either stay in the shade or cover up and I felt very bad… Read Full Review

“F40 calypso once a day kids”

Written on: 07/08/2013 by zarzar13 (1 review written)

Purchased this calypso f40 once a day kids lotion as my daughter has a solar allergy and comes out in a terrible itchy rash in the sun and the doctor suggested a once a day application sun cream as it is thicker (although she is also on tablets) we are currently spending 5 weeks in Malta and the temp is around 36 most days. What I did do was reapply every few hours for the first week to get used to it as her allergy is pretty bad but 2weeks in we really are using once a day (with a little more… Read Full Review

“DO NOT TRUST !!!”

Written on: 10/06/2012

Have just returned from our holiday in Gran Caneria and had purchase the Calypso factor 40 suncream for children as I had read many reviews on the product and overall sounded very good. I followed the instructions and all the advice I had read applying it all over making sure nothing was missed and leaving for 20 mins before getting dressed. The first day my son spent most of it in the pool apart from comming out for a drink or lunch which was all in the shade. I was little apprehensive but… Read Full Review

“Children's once a day range is no good for children!”

Written on: 30/05/2012 by Laurs2 (1 review written)

I bought this for my children (suitable for kids range) as they don't like to be topped up on sun lotion every few hours. I thought it was a great idea, although only protects up to 6 hours, so isn't really once a day. The 3 of them broke out in a rash, I thought it was sun related at first (prickly heat) although non of them have suffered with it before. Spots on the body and hives on their face. I didnt think it was particularly cheap at £13.99 but have now had to buy f more sun cream, I… Read Full Review

“Calypso once a day”

Written on: 23/08/2011

I have just returned from Turkey where the temperature was higher than 40C every day. I normally use P20 or Ultrasun as I have fair skin. This year I purchased 200ml of Calypso from Home Bargains for £5.99, about a third of the price of the other products. The results were just as good, so in future this is all I will take on any foreign holidays… Read Full Review

“I have black skin and I suffer from eczema and the sun...”

Written on: 11/06/2010

I have black skin and I suffer from eczema and the sun makes it worse. Calypso sun lotion and spray are brilliant as it rubs in like a lotion and does not leave a white residue on the skin. It will sting a bit if the eczema is a little sore at the time but it soon goes and doesn't make my skin worse. I use it all over as well as on my face. I find factor 30 in the lotion is a bit too heavy and irritating to the skin although i am going to try the factor 30 in spray this year. I used to not… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/06/2010

I have very fair skin and burn easily. I bought Calypso Once a Day as an alternative to P20 as it was so much cheaper and have been really happy as it works just as well as P20 for a fraction of the price! It's easy to apply and really does last all day with only one application, I have not been sunburnt since using this and would highly recommend it, this is the only sun protection I will be using from now on… Read Full Review

Ok sorry i have not actually used this product but i have just purchased 2 bottles of 20 and 1 of 40 and was a bit concerned when i read about the fake bottles with sticky labels on instead of the bottle being printed so i called linco care the makers and they have assured me that they do use sticky labels

“I used the Calypso Sun Once a day application sun lotion. ”

Written on: 24/05/2010

I used the Calypso Sun Once a day application sun lotion.
It really does what says on the box, fragrance free, clear non staining liquid is quickly absorbed leaving no residue or greasie sticky skin .Apply it after your morning shower and go and have your breakfast, 45 minutes later your ready to head out in the sun all day and no need to reapply. It says factor 20 but I think its a little higher than that. I have tried other products which were much more expensive and this one really is the… Read Full Review

I've seen these Dry Oil Sprays sold in Matalan, Poundstretcher and in various chemists in the past, I'm sure they are still regularly available.

Written on: 05/05/2005 by Maverick999 (14 reviews written)

Both my partner and I were burnt using a counterfeit product claiming to be Calypso Sun Care Cream. The way to check if your bottle is legitimate is:

Linco (Calypso) logo and application directions etc are printed on the bottle!

Where as the counterfeit bottle has stick on labels back and front.

Linco (Caylpso) top has a smooth edge top.

The counterfeit top is scored down the length… Read Full Review

My new stock from Linco Care Ltd Manchester has a single label that wraps the bottle. The Cap is smooth.

so you were sold and used a fake product.... why then review it as if it was the real one? you have made sure that the product is now at a lower reivew level because you had not used an "original" product?
<br/>
<br/>i am sorry you had problems but you should not have reivewed as Calypso!

Linco did have an issue a couple of years back when their customers in Cyprus were getting hold of imitation products from somewhere else. This was quickly rectified.
<br/>
<br/>Most of the products so have the designs printed straight onto the bottle, however with a few products the designs are printed onto labels, this is most likely due to the bottles being used for more than one product.
