Calypso Sun Cream Review*


Calypso Sun Cream 20 APF Calypso Sun Cream 40 SPF

I was sent two bottles of Calypso newest sun cream product under the ‘once a day’ range to review. The first suncream is for kids with 40 SPF (high protection). It is also water resistant and I am told that it only requires one application. The other bottle is for adults with 20 SPF (medium protection), water resistant and becomes active after 15 minutes.

As a family we have our own favourite sun cream brand which we have been using for years but we decided to give this a go. With a spat of glorious sunny weather the last few weeks, we were able to test the sun cream a couple of times. The prices for these sun cream are very reasonable without compromising on the quality or or effectiveness. Price ranges from £5.95 to £10.77 depending on where you buy it.

Personally, I found the smell very fragrant and coconuty. It made me feel like I was already on a vacation by the beach somewhere even though I was still at home. The sun cream’s texture felt a little more greasy and grainy compared to our usual brand soon as it was rubbed, but a good 5 minutes later, it was fine. The kids said that they felt the lotion was more grainy on their skin. We did not get sunburnt and somewhat I felt that it did a better job as I felt it the sun cream’s presence more on my skin and the sun cream was not absorbed. Will we use it again? Yes of course, or I will, but the kids would need some convincing.

Here’s the full range of the suncream.
