ConsSlight greasy feeling to skin, alcoholic content!

Context and Price I am a little bit obsessed with sun tan lotion. During the summer months, and on any vaguely sunny days any other time of the year, you will usually be able to find some sun tan lotion either in my bag or within three metres of me. Like rats in London, but far more useful. It's...

☼ Don't you just love the summer, it lift's the spirits; the days are longer and out comes the sun products. Whether you are going abroad or staying in the UK there will be times when the sun becomes strong enough to burn your skin not a wise thing to do at any age. I used to be one of the...

I've already done a review on the Calypso After Sun spray and I am a huge fan of their products. It's that time of year again, and we are off on Holiday at the end of June. I've already started shopping for Holiday bits and bobs and one of my necessities is Calypso Dry Oil spray. My holiday is...

“Brilliance!”

published 25/08/2014

ProEverything!

ConsNone at all!

One thing I have never really given a lot of though to in the past if I'm honest is suncare. I am very pale skinned and only been sunburnt once in my life and that was when I was a child (up until a few weeks ago that is!) because I never liked the sun much (in the past) and didn't worship it and...

I have a good array of sun care products in the house that I replace on a yearly basis, and due to the lovely weather we have experienced over the last month or so, I have brought a couple of extra products in as I love being out and about in the sun, but I am also extremely aware of protecting...

ConsNone, unless you don't like coconut

Whether you're heading off for a holiday abroad, or holding out hope that Britain will one day surpass itself and provide a few days of glorious weather, you need to be prepared for the sun. I'm not against paying for a decent product with a high sun protection factor, consider it an insurance...

“Don't burn in the sun”

published 13/10/2001

Procheap, effective

Consnone

When I go away, I always take my calypso dry oil spray with me. I couldn't leave the house without it, especially going abroad as I burn easily. Calypso is quite cheap really compared to some other sun tan sprays. They are different prices, as it depends on what factor you buy. They range from £2...

I live very close to the beach (lucky for me) and often take advantage of this and sun bathe regularly in the summer. We all know the risks of getting skin cancer and have experienced the irritation of getting burnt, so we all must take the neccessary precautions to prevent the above from...

It is virtually impossible to ignore the dangers that accompany sun bathing without suitable protection, risks such as premature skin aging, and skin cancer. Thus finding a sunscreen that blocks the suns harmful UVA and UVB rays is vital to anyone wanting to stay safe whilst enjoying the sun. I...

I tan quite easy abroad and generally use factor 15 suncream to protect my skin. I had been told though to use dry oil on the last couple of days of my holiday to really bring out my tan. I bought this dry oil for £2.99 which compared to alot of suncreams and dry oils is relatively cheap! Its in...

The Calypso kids dry oil spray for body and scalp protection is very convenient, quick and easy to apply, and not just for the kids. If you have fair skin it is ideal. I burn very easily, and have not burnt at all after using this product. I don't even have to be too particular about reapplying...
