“Not so Good”

Written on: 02/05/2021 by EzraRyker (6 reviews written)

Not only does it spray on clear, it doesn't stain your clothes at all (unlike it's rival P20 which turns clothes, bedding, and anything it touches, a horrid yellow colour)… Read Full Review

“It is water resistant”

Written on: 16/04/2021 by FainaCaspian (5 reviews written)

It is also water resistant and I am told that it only requires one application. The sun cream's texture felt a little more greasy and grainy compared to our usual brand soon as it was rubbed, but a good 5 minutes later, it was fine… Read Full Review

“lotion was more grainy on their skin”

Written on: 30/03/2021 by EloraGrace (5 reviews written)

The first suncream is for kids with 40 SPF (high protection). The sun cream's texture felt a little more greasy and grainy compared to our usual brand soon as it was rubbed, but a good 5 minutes later, it was fine. The kids said that they felt the lotion was more grainy on their skin… Read Full Review

“Calypso - Cheap effective sun protection”

Written on: 15/02/2015 by Bunnybear (2 reviews written)

I love this range of products. Purchased through Home Bargains, I bought Sunfactors 30 and 15 spray oil for my recent holiday in Mexico last month. I used this product everyday and used both bottles whilst away. I didn't burn even though the sun was hot everyday of our holiday and even gave protection whilst I was in the pool. The scent is of coconuts and really quite pleasant. The key is not to think that sun protection is the same for each skin type. I always view normal sun exposure before… Read Full Review

“Best I've ever used, never burned once and I have fair...”

Written on: 24/07/2014 by Marmaris2014 (1 review written)

I have very fair, freckly, typical Scottish skin. Our whole family used Calypso Sun cream in different factors whilst on holiday in Turkey. The temp was in the late 30s to early 40 degrees every day. I have used all the more expensive creams and burned. None of my family had any sunburn whatsoever using Calypso. It is fantasticly waterproof and only had to be reapplied twice the whole day and considering our 7yr old and 14 yr old were never out of the pool (factor 30). No sunburn… Read Full Review

“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

FANTASTIC PRODUCT - WHICH GUIDE PROPERLY TESTED IT.

Hi I just thought I would report this review as completely misleading. I am a WindSurfer and spend up to 3 hours in the water windsurfing intensively. I have use the calypso clear protect oil and never have I been burnt. It’s a fantastic product. The which guide rated it very highly. And they have also written an article saying you should never trust an all day product because it rubs off. I suspect this is what has happened?

“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
