    Does P20 have an expiration date. I was given some at a travel show a year ago I think, might be longer. Couldn’t see a date at first glance?

    I probably should have asked the dermatologist. I could drop her an email I guess :smile:

    P20 for me also. It's expensive if used in the right quantities but it does a great job of letting you be out most if the day without burning.

    but seriously - as someone said above, you need a lot of the stuff. You need to put on “far too much", then do the same again.

    ''twas me. You'll notice that I fish. What you might not notice is that I do it in the Tropics. With proper application of a very high quality SPF 15* cream I'm out all day and return unburnt and very lightly tanned after a week. A standard tube (100ml) lasts me c3 applications of just hands neck and face. If you don't look slightly ridiculous for about 20 mins then put more on!

    *Note that SPF is a logarithmic scale, so a 15 gives 93% of the protection of a total block cream.

    This thread, and midlife crises, has spurred me on to go back to my childhood and get some of those fluorescent coloured sunscreens. Quite fancy the orange and the blue could cover my urge to do the Smurf thing. Not sure I’m as good looking as @ianrauk though.

    I don't need to block out all Sun, just give myself more protection than I usually use cycling (i.e. None :blush: ) without getting blinded by the stuff if I perspire a bit! I'm not especially fair skinned nor prone to burning unless I use nothing in mid summer!

    I've got that Rosacea condition (Dr speak for looks red but otherwise no idea) so have been wearing a peaked 'chav' cap for the last 15 years. Still got rosacea.

    See a dermatologist, this is what I've been diagnosed with. On antibiotics to clear it, although I'm to.d it'll come back. Reducing alcohol and spicy food meant to help

    I don't do caps, chav or otherwise, so won't be going that route :smile:

    Me too 3 alternate days of patch testing the following week and then April biopsies of my sinus membranes. All this and I hate even going to the GP!> Cannot say I am not getting my monies worth out of the NHS.

    It would be worth emailing your Derma, I have a 3" patch on my neck from Cycling without protection she called it Photosensitivity did have a technical term but cannot recall it I thought it was shaving rash to be honest. There are certain things Perfume in particular that are supposed to set off Rosacea they might have a good idea for the best cream to use.
