Rated 2 out of 5 by Tommynada Never again
I got a large tube if this in a TSV and opened it on my holiday two weeks ago, I was wearing a dark top and even though I had waited over half an hour the white marks still appeared and it was not easy to remove. Although I didn't burn I will never buy this again, I had a different brand with me in the same SPF and used that instead. Ultrasun used to be the only brand I would buy but more than one of the products have let me down now.

I bought this product as part of a TSV kit which is no longer on QVC for me to add this review to. My comments, therefore, only relate to the SPF 30 cream.
The product was very effective at protecting against the sun (25c-29c) and was not greasy on the skin after application. However, it was very thick to apply and had a nasty smell similar to emulsion paint which my husband and I did not like.
Something to be aware of: My husband was left with large, patchy burns on his chest after covering up with a T-Shirt for only a short period of time. We surmised the cream had been totally absorbed into the cotton leaving him later unprotected. It appears to come off easily with clothes contact so you'll need to re-apply. Not something we expected for such an expensive water resistant product .
The cream has also stained all his white T-Shirts and my swim cover ups. They are now all tinted yellow with yellow patches around necklines and arm seams, even after washing.
I don't think I will be re-purchasing this sun tan cream in the future.
