Once A Day TanOnce A Day Tan

Passed the Waterpark testBradley Parker-Smart20 Apr 24
I tried the 15 SPF once a day tan & protect on a recent holiday to Tenerife (April) I thought it was an unusual consistency when I first started using it. But easy to apply. I applied liberally, wanting to make sure it was on correct. You do need to use more than average I would say, compared to say a lotion or a dry mist The major test was a day in Siam park, with 4-5 hours spent in the sun/water/sheltered queues around an hour shaded lunch break. I could still feel that there was protection there, which was very impressive considering the aggressiveness of when you get blasted by and land in the water on the rides (of which I must have gone on around 15 across the day - go on a Sunday if you want a tip, seems to be reasonable) I used it throughout the rest of the holiday on my body. I noticed that if you try to reapply, it does not seem to go very well at all, and you get sort of bits forming, which i suppose is telling you that the protection is still there The 15 SPF protection is a bit low for sustained sunbathing. I have ordered 25 SPF for next time, but will probably use a non-once a day variety and re-apply after a pool session!

It worksAnne Neville27 Nov 23
Switched a few years ago to this product after paying lots more. Love how it goes on the skin smoothly and protects all day. Lovely deep golden tan that seems to last longer. The price is right too.

Once a day ..all day!!Hazel Whiteside-Smith27 Jun 23
This product is amazing (once you’ve got past the initial “smell” !!) does exactly what it says in the tin..protects you all day..it’s as good but lots cheaper than other once a day lotions I’ve been using it for years and have never burned once ..even in very high temperatures..I’ve tried to persuade others to use it but they don’t seem to think it can be any good!!! IT IS & I go a lovely colour..wouldn’t use anything else

Great Product - Great Service !21 Jun 23
Easy to apply - gave my wife and I a great deep tan, loved the fact we could apply at the start of the day and lasted and protected us well all day, even though we were in and out of the swimming pool. No burning whatsoever ! Ordered in the afternoon and the two products were delivered next day - at a very competitive price - postage was free - Bonus! Thank you - have used your company twice now and will continue doing so in the forseeable future.

Love Calypso once a day, easy to apply, doesn’t leave any marks on clothing, very effective. And a very good price too. Normally start off with 20 and then progress to 15 once tan is established. Would definitely recommend

Really works!06 Jun 23
I love that you put it on in the morning and can forget about it all day but DO remember to put plenty on EVERYWHERE! Doesn’t dry your skin out..leaves it feeling soft and silky It’s very reasonably priced compared to other ONCE A DAY products I’ve used CALYPSO for years and never had a problem…would (& do)recommend it to everyone ! Give it a go..you won’t be disappointed! (or sunburnt!)

One of the best suncream on the market. My family burn very easily and did two weeks in Florida without a single burn. Rubs in easily and doesn't leave any greasiness.

It works...James21 Jun 21
Does what it says on the product keeps you protected for up to 10 hours and very easy to apply so you are protected straight away. We took Three 200ml bottles on our 14 day cruise to the Caribbean and it worked out just fine and even after being home now over 3 weeks the tan is still there and has only just starting to fade... perhaps we need another holiday ? Calypso take note!

  • Ensure your skin is dry.

  • Apply generously where applicable and smooth in gently.

  • Allow to dry before getting dressed.

  • First time users should reapply after 10 minutes.

  • Leave on the skin 15 minutes before sun exposure to allow the sunscreen to bind to your skin.

  • Showering and toweling will remove the product. Do not rub.

  • Do not exceed exposure to the sun for longer than your skin type allows, taking into account the strength of the sun.

  • Avoid contact with eyes. In case of contact, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.

Description

Our Once a Day Tan & Protect combines UVA/UVB protection with melanin boosting ingredients to increase the underlying process of tanning within your skin, providing a more uniform and longer-lasting tan. The water resistant formula provides all day UVA/UVB protection and ensures a golden and natural tan, with 0% self-tanner.

Looking for a Once a Day product in another factor? The Once a Day sun protection range is available in SPF10 to SPF50+. You can also try our convenient Once a Day Sachets to stay protected when you’re on the go.

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. It is the measure of the sunscreen’s ability to filter UVB rays. You should consider your skin type, hair colour and location when choosing an SPF product. If you're not sure what SPF to choose, visit Be sun ready to find more information.
SPF 15 is available from:

Your Questions Answered

Children are more susceptible to UV-related skin damage than adults. We obtain most of our lifetime's sun exposure as children and teenagers. It is known that sunburn during childhood can lead to severe skin damage in later years. You should use a specially formulated high factor product for children, such as our Once a Day SPF40 or our Sensitive Sun Lotion Spray SPF50+ and ensure it is re-applied, especially after swimming and towelling. Ideally, children should be covered up with loose clothes and wide-brimmed hats. Most importantly, children under 6 months should be kept out of direct sunlight.

Yes! They keep their effectiveness by binding more strongly to the skin, so they last longer. Our Calypso Once A Day range is rigorously tested to ensure that even after 8 hours of wear, it still offers the SPF on the label. You should be extra careful to apply enough of the product and make sure all exposed skin is covered. However, please remember that even water-resistant Once A Day sunscreens can still be washed off if you spend a long time in the water or if you dry yourself with a towel, so you might need to reapply.

Yes you can. All ingredients in the Calypso product range have been approved as cosmetic ingredients.

This product does not contain fake tan. Instead, it features a tan enhancer formulated to accelerate and extend your natural tan, helping you achieve a radiant glow.
