“Useless product left me sunburnt ”

Written on: 13/08/2017 by 204Gentry (1 review written)

Easy to apply but doesn't protect at all. The factor 50 left me very sunburnt I will never use any Soltan products again. I spent most of my first week covered up under a sun shade in pain. Does not do what it says on the label! Very disappointing and seriously concerned about the damage to my skin. I am very careful in the sun as I have a fair skin and I have never been sunburnt before. Disgusted that this product is being sold. Buyer beware, seriously you cannot trust this product to protect… Read Full Review

“What has happened to Soltan sensitive suncream ?”

Written on: 11/08/2017

I have used soltan sensitive sun cream for many years so naturally bought it for this years holiday, imagine how I felt when after re-applying it as you should it went into elastic like blobs on my skin and also transferred to my swimsuit, which I then had to wash really carefully to get the white residue off. that wasn't the worst though because I have used it over the years to stop prickly heat which it did but I don't know if it has been changed but my prickly heat flared up. I stopped using… Read Full Review

“Worst cream ever”

Written on: 12/08/2016 by Kalebg40 (1 review written)

I bought solan sun lotion factor 15 because it had 5 stars. I was told it was one of the best on the market by a boots assistant. Taking her advice I bought 4 lotions and the hair protection product too. When I got on holiday and used the lotion, the first application was fine but when I re-applied after drying off from coming out the pool, it was absolutely disgusting, the cream from underneath the second application went all lumpy and the more I tried to rub it in the worse it got, so… Read Full Review

“Burnt all over ”

Written on: 05/04/2016 by Zoey111 (1 review written)

I am really disappointed to say that, despite following all guidance for application both the solan SPF15 and SPF30 have led to sunburn on two of us whilst on holiday. Red blotchy patches of burn all over regardless of the fact we applied regularly and once we had been in the water. I have chosen to use soltan this year as it is cheaper than creams I usually use and also boasts an admirable level of uva/uvb protection. I have relied heavily on other products in very many years of travelling and… Read Full Review

So glad to have my concerns confirmed. We have just arrived back from Spain after one week in the sun highest temp 26 degrees and my husband and I are full of red blotchy patches of burn of which I have never experienced in forty years of sunbathing. First and last time will ever use this brand of suncreams again. Boots seriously need to look into ingredients/chemicals in this cream.

“SPF 30 burnt all over!”

Written on: 04/03/2016 by Dariani156 (1 review written)

DO NOT BUY! We applied this lotion correctly, reapplied regularly including after going in the water, and are left with red patches and sunburn all over. It is also very irritating to the face. Not only is it not water resistant, it is not sweat resistant which is ridiculous for a sun tan lotion. Any sort of sweat or even movement renders it useless. This is not protective and is damaging, and Boots should not be allowed to advertise it as a sun tan lotion. It is a runny white ineffective cream… Read Full Review

“HORRENDOUS!”

Written on: 22/09/2014 by Avah481 (1 review written)

Don't, Don't, Don't buy this if you want to wear your clothes more than 'Once'. On arriving home from holiday with all my 'Soltan Once' stained clothes, I tried to remove the dirty yellow staining with a wash in stain remover in the washing machine. The staining was still there and so I tried actually bleaching the previously, white garments. DISASTER as this turned all the original 'Soltan' staining BRIGHT PINK. I finally ( as a last resort ) washed on the hottest wash with a MUG FULL of… Read Full Review

“Soltan spray sun cream”

Written on: 07/09/2014 by UrijahMcDougall1949 (1 review written)

I applied factor 50 on my face last week and now have a bad reaction. It has made my face red, sore and itchy. It's so sore I can't put anything on as it stings so much. Would not recommend or use this product again. If 50 factor can do that I worry about the lower factors and for children as we'll. it was the small travel bottle I bought in July this year but only used it for the first time last week at home. Never again!!!!… Read Full Review

“Soltan Stains Clothes”

We've just returned from the Caribbean where we were using Soltan factor 50. We're in complete agreement with other reviewers about the staining problem with this product. All my white shirts are ruined & there are noticeable stains on light coloured clothing. Do not use this product and come on Boots do something about it… Read Full Review

“Stained my pool”

Written on: 22/04/2013 by Lesgascous (1 review written)

Clients renting our french house used Soltan once whilst bathing , the end result is that we are now faced with an immovable green stain around the waterline of the pool? I contacted boots to ask advise and they told me to use dandruff shampoo to clean with! We have now band the use of this product at the house , not only has it decked a new swimming pool it has also been responsible for staining of sheets and towels. Comments from boots have been totally unacceptable!… Read Full Review

“Stained Clothes”

Written on: 21/04/2013

I really like most boots products but have been let down by various Soltan products. As others have said, it stains light coloured clothing and won't wash out, leaving yellow marks around arms and neck lines especially. I am looking for an alternative this year, which is a shame as I am an utter boots devotee, but I must agree with my husband, who is refusing to buy this again for this years holiday. It does give good protection, smells nice and goes on well and evenly but I just can't risk… Read Full Review

“Worst sun protection ever experienced”

Written on: 09/04/2013 by Molly1981 (1 review written)

I bought the family pack of soltan creams (factor 15, 30 and kids 50) to take on our honeymoon, along with a bottle of P20 and a bottle of piz buin.. I've tried all different sunscreens over the years and always found them effective enough to ensure I never actually burn, until now! My husband started off using the Piz Buin and I used the Soltan. Our first day at te beach I followed the directions on the bottle and applied the cream generously, reapplied regularly, went for a swim in the sea… Read Full Review

Traceyproctor's Response to Molly1981's Review

Written on: 07/06/2014

I wish I had read this review before using the factor 50 on my 8 year old (holiday in Tenerife). I am totally devastated at the state of his skin I had him in a protective sun top and shorts and his only exposed areas were his forearms and legs. I stopped using it after 2 days and used a sun cream recommended by a skincare advisor at our hotel. But the damage was done. He is incredibly burnt and has blisters up his forearms. I totally trusted the Boots name. I am shocked, devastated and ashamed. Please avoid this sun cream.

“No more prickly heat with Soltan's new sensitive cream! ”

Written on: 12/08/2012 by Hellsbells1 (1 review written)

If prickly heat has blighted your time in the sun then it's time to breathe a huge sigh of relief as Soltan introduces a sunscreen which really does stop the on set of the awful symptoms. Try it - you'll never look back. Just returned from the best holiday I've ever had with the deepest tan ever too! I feel reborn. Thank you Boots. Please do not take your prickly heat sensitive cream out of production… Read Full Review

I bought soltan sensitive for myself as have used in the past without a problem, and the soltan kids once water play. We used all as it instructs you to on the bottle (and more!) and it ruined clothes as stains a horrid yellow colour, and we all burnt and blistered!wouldnt ever use again! Spoke to boots as I felt was serious they should know-was given a £75 gift card! We bought Nivea after the troubles and had no problems-didn't stain clothes and didnt blister!my advice-you pay for what you… Read Full Review
