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 though I should trust the one a day application, although a small amount was re-applied to his shoulders but to my horror that night I realised how badly my son had burnt on his shoulders, back, face and chest, my partner and myself had also burnt using it. The rest of the holiday my son had to wear a t-shirt in the pool and when not in the pool he was in the shade, he was in alot of pain which made me feel so guilty that I even thought about this stuff and to top it off all the t-shirts he did wear had to be chucked away as this stuff does stain and everything turned yellow.

We ended up having to buy more suncream over there as obviously having to reapply ment more was used and therfore working out more expensive which defeats the object in the first place.

Will never ever buy anything like this again and always reapply throughout the day what ever it says.
