works!"patsy georgy09 Aug 22
Don't know how I would manage without this sun protection. Fair skin, freckles and a red head! I put it on in the morning and quite happily can go out without worrying about burning. I even get a light tan (never tanned in my life before, I have had nasty burns before though!) No need to buy very expensive sun block, this works so well.

Great value , brill"Christine10 Jun 21
SPF6 is getting difficult to find now, it all seems to be 15 and above. But 6 is fine if you have a good tan and require little protection. I got 3 bottles of this so will last me a while

Calypso Press and Protect Sun Lotion SPF 30

Press & Protect

Sun Lotion

Read 5 reviews

Calypso Press & Protect offers UVA/UVB protection and helps prevent premature ageing. It is a light, non-greasy and water resistant formula with gentle moisturisers that replenish the natural oils lost by exposure to the sun, wind and water. Photostable, the lotion maintains its level of sun protection.

Our Press & Protect Sun Lotion SPF30 has been recommended by many independent sources including Which, who chose it as its “Best Buy Sunscreen” in 2014 and 2015. A unique Press & Protect Chart appears on the back of the packaging, which can be used as a guide to ensure you are applying the correct amount of sunscreen to adequately protect your skin from the sun.

Prefer an oil to a lotion? Try our Dry Oil Spray for instant all over body and scalp protection.

  • Always apply generously to all exposed areas 20 - 30 minutes before sun exposure and rub it thoroughly into your skin

  • Reapply frequently, especially after perspiring, swimming or towelling

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

  • Ideally do a patch test before use

Questions & Answers

What do SPF levels actually mean?

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor and represents the sunscreen’s ability to protect your skin from the sun’s rays in addition to your skin’s natural protection. Depending on your skin type, hair colour, eye colour and location, you may be able to stay in the sun for 10 minutes without burning.
If you apply a sunscreen with SPF30 this means that you can stay in the sun 30 times longer than you could without sunscreen. However, you must use sunscreen as directed and ensure enough sunscreen is initially applied (35ml) for maximum coverage. Higher factors should not be used to increase your time in the sun, but to increase your level of protection.

Do I need to apply sun cream when it is not particularly sunny or hot?

Yes, sunscreen is still required. Even when the sky is overcast, UV radiation levels are still at 80% of their normal levels. The temperature can be deceptive - a breeze can keep you cool, but it doesn’t affect UV levels. Look up the UV index for your area to make sure you’re using protection when you need to be.

Are more expensive sunscreens safer?

According to Cancer Research UK, this is not true. They claim: ’Cost is no indication of better protection. You may simply be paying for a brand name. All types are tested and the cheaper brands are just as effective if used properly.’ Calypso Press and Protect Sun Lotion SPF30 was found to be one of the cheapest and most effective sun creams and was chosen by Which? as its “Best Buy Sunscreen” for 2014 and 2015.

Are your products tested on animals, and are they suitable for vegetarians and vegans?

We’re pleased to say that we don’t test any of our products on animals. What's more, we don’t buy ingredients that have been tested on animals by another manufacturer. So you can buy Calypso confident in the knowledge that your sun care is cruelty-free.
All our products are suitable for vegetarians. However, some contain ingredients like keratin (made from sheep’s wool) or beeswax (made by bees) that vegans may wish to avoid. If you have any questions about animal ingredients, please get in touch.
