I am 40 years old and spend time on my PC doing surveys, entering competitions and looking for the best deals on the internet (which I am very good at finding!). I also love travelling, particularly staying at 4-5 star hotels at bargain prices.

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 can imagine I was very sceptical, but having had many hot holidays and always burnt I thought what the hell, and bought some.....
P20 comes in a 100ml or 200ml screw top plastic bottle. It costs roughly £10 for 100ml and £20 for 200ml. This may seem expensive, but actually is good value when you really only apply it once a day. It can be purchased from several outlets that include: Superdrug, Waitrose, John Lewis, Lloyds pharmacy, Bodycare, Savers, Wilkinsons, Semi-Chem, and most airport duty free shops (at a reduced price for 200ml bottle only). It can also be purchased online at www.pharmacy2u.co.uk and other places I'm sure.
P20 is a once a day sunfilter, which is simply not like any other product. It is a truly amazing product which is a well tried and tested product to protect from sunburn while allowing a gentle, slow golden tan to develop. It provides high sun protection (factor 20) and is still 90% effective after swimming.
It is a unique product as it needs to be applied only once a day, 90 minutes before exposure to the sun. There’s no need to re-apply the product, so you can simply get on with enjoying yourself, and not have to cart round heavy, messy bottles with you. (Easy-to-follow instructions are provided with each bottle, which MUST be adhered to for product to work).
One handy, lightweight 100ml bottle is usually enough for one person for one week.
P20 is non-greasy and fragrance free once dry, the only downfall is that it can stain clothing, if you're not careful.
INGREDIENTS OF P20
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 in the skin, a process that takes 90 minutes. Amazingly P20 gives high protection (SPF 20) against the sun’s burning UVB rays but still lets through some UVA rays to allow you to tan. The result is a golden tan without the burn.
To use P20, apply each morning in an even layer to clean, dry skin, AT LEAST 90 minutes before exposure to sun or swimming. (Once absorbed, P20 retains 90% of its protection even after swimming.) Do not use any moisturiser, talc, etc. before using P20 as it will stop the product binding to the keratin of your skin.
If all of this still makes you sceptical (like I once was) then why not go to their website www.p20.co.uk where you can get a FREE 10ml sample sachet.
I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO STANDARD SUN TAN CREAMS AGAIN, AND MY ONLY REGRET IS THAT I WISH I KNEW ABOUT THIS PRODUCT YEARS AGO.....
