Solved my prickly heat problem!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ultrasun SPF 30 Family Super Sensitive 500ml (Misc.)
For my past few holidays abroad, I've suffered with horrible prickly heat across my chest, which has really put a damper on each holiday. I heard about this product online and decided to try it out of desperation, despite it being pricier than other suncare items. I can safely say I came, saw and conquered Costa Dorada this year without a hint of prickly heat.
For the complete story, I also used the Ultrasun aftersun (including for a week before the holiday on my chest to 'prime' it for sun exposure, although the warm weather in the UK this summer has made that less of an issue). While on holiday in Spain for 10 days in 30 degree humid conditions, I applied the suncream daily in the morning before going out in the sun, once and only once per day, and took almost daily antihistamines (Benadryl instant allergy relief, to be specific). It's possible that it was the combination of products that worked for me, but the Ultrasun cream definitely left my skin feeling much healthier than other suncreams have, and once a day was more than enough to avoid burning, even with pool and sea swims. With factor 30, I tanned gradually and safely each day and was left with a great tan by the end of the 10 days. If you want to tan more quickly, it might be worth grabbing some of the factor 20 sports Ultrasun to switch to after the first few days.
The aftersun is pretty much spent after 3 weeks of daily generous use, but the 500ml super sensitive doesn't even seem dented after 10 days of solo daily use. Well worth it for an itch and rash free summer holiday!
