“Tan-tastic!!!”

published 11/07/2004

Only apply once a day

Takes an hour and a half to work

Sounds unbelievable doesn’t it – only having to apply your sun protection once per day? That’s what Reimanns P20 claims. It was recommended to me by a policeman who said his mate (who had even fairer skin than me) never burnt his entire holiday. It was after I forked out nearly twenty quid for...

I have really fair skin that burns easily, and don't usually get a tan. In fact I often avoid direct sun, being quite happy to sit in the shade or wait until the strong sun has passed before venturing out. However, when holidaying somewhere where that isn't practical (Mexico and Florida are two...

Stains clothing

Summary - Great protection (factor 20) from a single once-a-day application - Allows the skin to tan giving a natural, subtle colour - Not noticeably affected by swimming and contact with water only (does wash off with soap and water) - Costs around 18 pounds for 200 ml (which sounds expensive...

90 minute wait, occasional staining,

RECOMMENDATION I was recommended this product by a stranger whilst I was perusing the vast choice of suntan creams. She noticed I was fair skinned and told me that I must try P20 as it is an amazing product that will make me never want to use other creams again. She said you only need to...

Smell

Riemann P20 once a day sunblock is my first line of defense again the effects of the sun. I do not use it on its own as I always top it off throughout the day with a factor 50+ sun cream as well. The best way to think of this product is that it acts as a base layer forming a protective layer on...

“Best sun protection ever?”

published 29/07/2003

Once a day application, brilliant protection

initally expensive, may cause staining

I was recommended this stuff by a friend several years ago. I thought it was a bit expensive, but tried it anyway. I have been using it ever since. As it only has to be applied once a day, 90 mins before exposure to the sun, it was a simple matter of putting it on, having breakfast and then you...

I have used P20 for 5 years now and I have never burnt despite being in the Caribbean, Greece and Mallorca all at the top of their seasons. I struggle to get a tan but not with P20 I get a lovely colour. My other half goes very brown and he loves it as he goes very dark without getting burnt at...

Easy to apply, once a day and burn free

The smell isn't the best but fades quickly.

I am a very avid traveller, although I also one of the palest people you are likely to meet (good Celtic stock). With this in mind I am always happy to find a product that will help me out. Riemann's is a superb example. When I was younger and we would take family holidays it was a pain having to...

You do not burn!

Very expensive.

All of my life I have been prone to sunburn. I put this down to a combination of two things: the first is that I have very pale skin, with freckles and moles; the second is that I did not have my first holiday abroad until I was 18. Year after year, I would go on holiday and always burn terribly...

It is the Holy Grail of sunscreen

No real ones

IF YOU BURN EASILY IN THE SUN THEN READ THIS. Sorry about the loud opening, but this is important! You may have seen P20 before in Duty Free on your way to a nice hot holiday, but totally ignored it, knowing you already have a stock of suncream in your bags and thinking it might be totally...

“Golden Brown”

Convenient

Pricey and takes a while to take effect

With all the excellent sunny weather we have been experiencing recently I thought I'd let you in on this product, I am joking about the weather of course! This must be one of the best kept secrets on the sun cream market and I only came across it through word of mouth. Indeed you will find it...

I have used Riemann P20 Sun Filter High Protection for about 4 years now and wouldn't use anything else. I have fair, freckly skin and can only sit in the sun, even in the UK, for about 10 minutes before burning. I have tried many different sun products in the past and found that they were...

“Sun protection at its best!”

published 28/03/2005

Excellant protection and only one coverage needed

Sticky at first

If like me you are fair skinned and burn easily this product is essential! I tried it in July last year on our two week holiday to Malta. It claims to only need one application and prevent burning. Here is my experience with it: As it needs to be put on 1h ½ before going outside on the first day...
