Rated 4 out of 5 by AnnieBaba Great protection but ruins swimwear
I am in my late 40's, am a natural strawberry blonde with blue eyes, very fair sensitive skin and freckles. In strong Greek sun (August), this cream, applied two-three times a day with swimming (rather than several times for standard SPF 50 suncream) gave me my first ever golden suntan. Friends/colleagues were envious! I usually either burn or would have to put on so much standard suncream that I came home virtually white and people wouldn't know that I had been on a Sunshine holiday.
The only drawback(and the reason why I award 4 stars instead of 5) is that the two new black tankinis that I bought for my fortnight's holiday turned white/grey from the product. I could not wash it out even with detergent in the washing machine after returning home. Due to the protection offered and the lovely tan, I have bought more bottles but cheap swimwear.
Please can we have 150ml bottles. I have to take quite a few bottles of the size available for my holiday and presumably larger bottles will reduce the cost ml for ml.

I listened to the presentations about this sun protection cream and decided to buy it. I have been gong to Malaysia and Singapore for 34years, I am a natural blonde very fair skin that freckles and burns very easily in the shortest time in the sun. I have used most types of sun creams and lotions over the years and never got a nice tan, I have burnt on several occasions. This last 6 weeks I was over in Malaysia Singapore and Thailand I had my 3 Grandchildren with me one i
s very fair and suffers with excma, I used only Ultra sun on us and I have got the loveliest tan I didn't have to lay in the sun it was swimming and walking and just everyday things. I won't use anything ever again . It did not irritate my granddaughter at all.

Use this for me EVERYDAY so really need larger sizes - litres would be ideal for me as need for medical reasons. All family use ultra sun though lower SPF for them and we all love it, easy to put on and does last, even for Irish white skin and freckles!
Need larger sizes please litre or 500ml in double or triple bottles - its amazing how much of 100ml bottles I use in a year.

I've been wearing the factor 30 for the past couple of years and it's fine, although I always reapply when I'm sitting in the sun. I bought the factor 50 as I was going abroad in August and I knew it was going to be very hot. On my first day, I discovered that this product had separated and resembled curds and whey. Consequently, this went in the bin - both were the same - and I had to buy a high street brand that I could have got much cheaper at home. To say I'm annoyed about this is an understatement. I won't purchase the factor 50 again. I'll use factor 30 and constantly reapply.

I can't praise this product enough. I first started using Ultrasun about three years ago and used the factor 30 which was very good and prevented me from burning but earlier this year I was prescribed a medication which can react with the sun possibly turning your skin orange or grey so I had to use a sun block.! I went up to factor 50 and I have not had a reaction. I use Ultrasun every day instead of a body lotion and the facial factor 50 instead of a moisturiser and have got the best tan I've ever had. When asked if I've been on holiday I say no I'm just using Ultrasun factor 50. I got the TSV of the higher factor when it was on auto delivery and get the duo in between. The only way it could be improved is to come in a larger size. I see that there is a 150 ml duo but this is on wait list and I need another order now so I can't wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by camelions Excellent product
Used this on a tropical holiday in June/July, applied once in the morning, no burning, got a beautiful golden tan, still there two weeks later, hubby used ultra sun 30, use 50 face as a day cream as I am lucky enough to have an opened top car. Still use 50 on body & face everyday in this gorgeous weather, which is why tan is staying golden brown. Could not believe how well this product worked in 36 degree sunshine. Would and do recommend to everyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dee10 Best ever sun protection
Used this set I am fair with freckles and burn so have to use sun protection. I have used lots of different brands , and found then to sit on my skin , and mark my clothing . Ultrasun is not sticky or irritating to my skin and dry on the skin. It was perfect for a resent holiday , Is brilliant for babies quick to apply and one application my grandchild now has her own bottle after using mine when on holiday I have purchased more to ensure we a good supply for the family. Well done QVC a hero brand

Rated 5 out of 5 by bryanfan IT REALLY WORKS
Bought for my husband to try as none of the other brands available have worked he has no melanin in his skin so burns within minutes. Ultrasun 50+ is ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC he still would never sit in the sun but usually just walking round outside means shirt sleeves down collar up and wide brimmed hat even doing that he would still have burnt areas on his arms and backs of his hands would be very sore and burt but this year thanks to Ultrasun he hasn't had any problems and its not too heavy or greasy no smell or perfumes so will be using it from now on will always watch out for offers from QVC for it
