It was our first day and we got absolutely burned really bad 2nd degree burns! even after using their cream! It clearly doesnít work. It spoiled our first few days and I was really worried about my younger teens skin as sheís pretty pale at the best of times.

I honestly think Iíve been a bit traumatised by it and donít think weíll ever go back now.

They should be told.



This was taken 4 days later. Iím still pealing now nearly 3 weeks later.

I wouldnít mind but it wasnít even that hot 20/21 degrees.

Same for us was 20 degrees was the coldest day there and we were shivering but still put loads of that cream on as it was sunny and knew could burn and we all fair skinned.

My nose blistered and still not recovered nearly 3 weeks later.

We would go again as really enjoyed the day but I wonít be using their cream again will buy some reef safe cream just for that day if needs be.

Hi,

If you Google search reef safe suncreams there are loads to choose from I use Ultra Violette which you can buy from a few places including cult beauty

Luckily I sprayed our faces just before we left our room otherwise our faces wouldíve burnt too. Just wish Iíd sprayed the rest of us. Or taken the spray. Iím still a bit annoyed at myself for not doing that. 🙄 my girls chests and shoulders were even worse.

Should see my legs they are still the same. I look ridiculous as the lines so defined because of the wetsuit. 😂

Does anybody know if any reef safe SPF 100 is available?
My mum had skin cancer a few years ago so won't risk anything below 100 when she's in Florida.

And after this thread there's no way I'm letting her use their own offerings!

Same happened to us a few weeks back. We were super vigilant with applying it but all got burnt on any skin not covered. I did not even swim with the fish. Seriously regretted not wearing our own. I saw 2 lifeguards there with banana boat in their waist band so they obviously don't use it either.
