AdvantagesOnly apply once a day

DisadvantagesTakes an hour and a half to work

"Sounds unbelievable doesnít it Ė only having to apply your sun protection once per day? Thatís 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 the stuff that I wondered where his mate had gone; it could have been Iceland or Alaska for all I know! Anyway I thought Iíd let my husband test it on our ..." Read review

Just Once a Day in the Morning

AdvantagesOnly need to apply it once a day

DisadvantagesTurns your clothes yellow

"***What is it?*** Riemann P20 is a once a day sun protection cream. If applied as per the instructions it will last for approx 6 hours. It only comes in factor 20. ***How does it work?*** Rieman say: The active ingredient in P20 is PABA (p-aminobenzoic acid), which is a natural substance found in the human body - it is also known as Vitamin H. When P20 is applied to the skin, the p-aminobenzoic acid is absorbed and binds to the keratin ..." Read review

Are you my sunshine?

AdvantagesOnly have to apply once a day, waterproof, high SPF, nice tan

DisadvantagesTakes a while to become active, can stain clothing, price might put you off

"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 recent-ish holidays that spring to mind) P20 does a great job at keeping my skin from burning. P20 is unusual so far as sun protection is concerned, since ..." Read review

AdvantagesNo heavy suntans to carry round, Once a day application, Tan without burning.

Disadvantages90 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 literally apply it once a day in the morning, wait 90 minutes, then that is it for the day!! She told me that you still tan, but do not burn whatsoever. As you ..."

My base layer against the sun

AdvantagesVery effective


"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 your skin at the start of the day that will not sweat out or wash off while you are in the water. Don't be fooled by the relatively low (by today's standards) ..." Read review

What us fair folk have been waiting for

AdvantagesPhenomenal sun protection from a single application

DisadvantagesStains clothing

"...is over! I was introduced to Riemann P20 by my partner, a pharmacist, after she had returned from travelling to some very hot climates. My partner's travelling companion happens to have a very pale complexion, like myself, and she used P20 throughout their adventure in places like India, Vietnam and Australia (during their summer!). To my surprise, the travelling companion did not frazzle in the Australian sun, resembling a lobster, and instead ..." Read review

Best sun protection ever?

AdvantagesOnce a day application, brilliant protection

Disadvantagesinitally 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 are ready for all day sun. I have used P20 in Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Cyprus and Spain and never once been burnt. I have been swimming & snorkeling and ..." Read review

You'll never go back to suncream

AdvantagesIt is the Holy Grail of sunscreen

DisadvantagesNo real ones

"...and tested in Denmark by Riemann & co. What sets it apart from other sunscreens is that it is a once aday lotion. You put it on your body ONCE in the morning and it will bind with your skin, giving factor 20 protection all day. Even after frequent swimming during the day it still retains about 90% of its effectiveness. No need to take countless bottles of cream to the beach. This makes it prefect for children and skiers on slopes to protect against ..." Read review

Fair skin this is the only way forward

AdvantagesGreat protection for fair skin and stops prickly heat

DisadvantagesCan stain clothes sometimes and it doesn't smell the best

"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 all. We have always used the 100ml bottles but this year we got the 200ml with the spray (new) from duty free as it was £10 cheaper than buying it in boots ..." Read review

This is the best sun protection I have ever tried

AdvantagesYou do not burn!

DisadvantagesVery 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. I tried everything, but to no avail. I could usually only stay in the sun for 30 minutes without burning. One of my friends used to always come back ..." Read review

Golden Brown


DisadvantagesPricey 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 very hard to buy, it used to be available only through mail-order and airport shops, but I believe larger Boots stores now sell it. It is made in Denmark, ..." Read review

I wouldn't use anything else.

AdvantagesOnly needs to be applied once - you don't need to carry the bottle with you!

DisadvantagesHigh price. Not to be applied if you're in a hurry.

"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 usually greasy and had to be reapplied frequently to afford any protection. I was always missing bits, as it is difficult to apply cream in public, and coming ..." Read review

The Very Pale Person's Choice!

AdvantagesEasy to apply, once a day and burn free

DisadvantagesThe 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 reapply after being in the sea/pool or if you were anywhere on a full day trip (i.e. Theme Parks) and so when we first discovered this it was a massive ..."

Sun protection at its best!

AdvantagesExcellant protection and only one coverage needed

DisadvantagesSticky 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 Ĺ before going outside on the first day I didnít bother putting it on because I think we were a little late getting up. So I just put normal sun cream on that day. By the evening however I was ..." Read review
