Hi EP,

Yes, my family have used it in the past. It does quite definitely work and I would definitely recommend it. You need to put it on and let it soak in for about an hour before you go in the sun. It is then sweat and water resistant. Because its only a once-a-day, I think its definitely worth the money - plus peace of mind.

In the past, if you got it on your clothes you would get yellow staining, but I think they have changed the formula in recent years.

Some of my family are allergic to normal sunscreens and so use another make called UltraSun (available online at ultrasun.com) - they do a factor 20 and a non-allergenic factor 17.

Enjoy the sunny weekend all!

Thanks for the link re ultrasun - as I am allergic to a lot of cosmetics and I am also doing TW and marathon with EP I will have a look at this.

Seems to do the job ok Evil Pixie and you can offset the expense against the once-a-day thing. The only concern I had is that it only refers to one type of UV (a or b - can't remember) from memory and it uses some chemical that other sunscreens proudly claim not to use!

That said i have used it windsurfing in the Med where you are getting v.v.exposed all day long + have sun reflected off the water and i have been fine. It's also totally non-greasy which is the best bit.

there are waterproof and sports orientated sunscreens pix, think of the stripes that cricketers have - i think that may be sunblock - so if u are really worried may be worth getting some for mouth, nose etc - try outdoor sports shops particularly for the overseas trekking stuff as peeps who do that will be in same boat as u trailwalkers !

Tried P20 about 3 times. each time I've got burnt. Not overly impressed with it.

P20 was used by some guys in the MDS last year with no ill effects. SD, did you apply 45 mins before going into the sun?

Egypt, Thailand and even Windsor 2 weeks ago. Always applied at least 1 hour before, but got burnt each time.

My boyfriend burns easy. He used P20 in Sri Lanka. Its good stuff.
It did however leave yellow staines on his white t-shirts.

EP -thanks for this thread - I have typical Celtic freckly skin that burns SO easily -

because of this I tried P20 before the Blackpool halfmarathon - it was an extreme challenge -

90 degree sun, no shade, wind -

P20, used as directed, protected me 100% - enough said, I'm convinced.
