Since its inception in 1978 Institut Esthederm has been at the cutting-edge of sun protection skincare. It takes an ‘avant-garde’ approach which allows consumers to enjoy the sun while counting on its advanced formulas to strengthen their skin’s own ability to protect itself.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rrose from This WORKS!!! I’ve been using this product exclusively for my Mediterranean holidays for the past 4 years and I have never burned once! It does what it says in sun protection and has a lovely creamy texture that is easily absorbed into the skin. In fact I use it on my face as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Caolan from Worth the Price I find the story and differences of Institut Esthederm really interesting. Obviously they do not label their products by SPF rating but rather by sun rating. I bought Moderate Sun as we moved into summer. I have previously used the white bottle, which stops you tanning, at a time when I was quite tan averse. I am very pale and I just don't react very well to the sun generally. With this product, you're meant to get 11 days worth of tan after four days, due to how it activates your melanocytes. I'm not a scientist, so I can't tell you if this is rubbish or not, but I can tell you that I haven't burned but I am a nice kind of golden colour. The texture and scent of the product are lovely and if you are looking for a sun cream that both protects your skin and allows you to tan, I would recommend that you give this a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Docdani from Lovely smell and good protection I bought this to try out a new sunscreen and I am very happy with it, it smells lovely, works well on my skin (it looks and feels hydrated) and I feel it allows for a great tan-so all in all an excellent purchase, despite the relatively steep price I’ll definitely recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Abigail S from Serious boost to my tanning ability & skin tone! I've never tanned well. Used this on holiday with a friend and had the most even, dark tan I've ever had. Fully converted ever since. Not only does it help you tan, but I've found it improves skin elasticity & moisture as well. It also soaks in quickly and isn't greasy. I love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Banksyramone from The best sunscreen I was recommended this many years ago and it’s simply the best sunscreen on the market. I never burn, it smells great. It’s the best sunscreen I have ever used. I am also a fan of the after sun and the facial sunscreen. The oil is also good. Honestly buy it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Genevieve1000 from All tan and no burn! I used this while on holiday in the US over the summer and developed a gorgeous tan. I don't usually burn but it does happen and with this I didn't at all. It's got a nice, subtle scent. It's expensive but worth it and lasts well. A little goes a long way. Will repurchase this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KAS from The best yet! This is honestly the best Si care I’ve used to date. Don’t tend to burn but slow tanner and I’m nervous of burning or damaging. So wear a high factor. I do have sensitive skin to sun and most creams. Can’t even tell I have this one on except for the gorgeous scent. Summer luxury also first time in years I have a watch mark. I have already ordered the face cream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kazzaroo74 from Leaves you with a great tan! Smells divine, great application and coverage, leaves you with nourished skin (so you don't get that snake skin effect as soon as you land) and a tan for several months after. I'm allergic to lots of sun creams so I was relieved to find I didn't react to this. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Janetc from Lovely texture and fragrance Bought this to use in Turkey in strong sun but I did have a tan so decided to go for the moderate sun. Loved it, nice to use and no burning. Have bought more for my next holiday. Very easily absorbed and doesn’t stain white clothes. Would recommend all the range

Rated 5 out of 5 by May05 from Perfect protection I purchased This for my August holiday to Italy after recommendation by the assistant. I am fair skin, burn easily and slow to tan. This was the perfect choice. I applied before I went out every day. It applied beautifully with subtle fragrance. I did not burn and slowly got a lovely tan. In fact, I still have tan now which is unusual for me. I would definitely purchase again, well worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TrudiT from Best sun lotion I have ever bought. I have used this sun lotion on a few different holidays and can honestly say that it is the best sun lotion that I have ever used. It is easy to apply and since using adaptasun I havnt burnt or peeled. My tan lasts longer and goes a lovely colour. I would recommend adaptasun and it’s now the only sunlotion I will ever use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sophiet from Great! I used this whilst away om holiday and I usually suffer massively from prickly heat and this is the first time in years that I didn't! I didn't burn (apart from on the spots I had missed...). The cream itself goes into the skin really nicely, doesn't feel tacky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by _raven_ from Perfect I love the whole range of these sun lotions. The strong sun one is perfect for the summer months and I use this moderate sun lotion in the spring and autumn when the sun rays are not as strong and damaging. I like the lightweight formula and a delicate smells it leaves on my skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Onerachel from Great suncream range I have fair freckly skin and blonde hair which tans slowly and can burn easily. I find choosing suncream quite tricky because I want a tan but also want to protect my skin from burning. This was recommended to me by a shop assistant and I am so pleased I tried it. I've used it in the UK, Europe and Asia and have never burned and get a lovely tan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ali chick from Good cream I am very fair skinned and have to be careful in the sun or I would burn to a crisp. I tried this this year as I have used other institut ethstederm products in the past and liked them. This is a good cream and I didn’t burn in the Greek islands in the middle of summer once. My skin felt healthy and hydrated when I came home too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Samie from Now everyone knows my secret! This is a fantastic dedicated suncare range. I tan easily and use this in the Uk. I’m always asked if I’ve been abroad and how I got such an even tan. Now everyone knows!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CJ 1 from Amazing I have trouble catching the sun, either just burning or not even catching it at all. I’ve used this product for my last couple of holidays, and for the first time in years, actually have a golden tan. I’ve never got burnt using it, and love it. It smells divine and I won’t use anything else. It is worth the money and an amazing product. I have the face sun cream too which is also amazing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GordyUK from burned every time i've used it I really wanted to love this product. Its gets great reviews, and the concept is sound, but i've now tried this range 5 times, in 5 different locations over 2 years, in different sun strengths from California, to Cape Town.. EVERY time i've used it, i've burned and this is despite using it prior to going away, generously while in the sun and the blue bottle of after sun (which is good btw). I can't try it any more times, sorry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Muffin92 from No sunburn here! Bought this to go to Australia; it was high summer and I didn't burn once, went lovely and brown and felt moisturised all the time. Only downfall is the price tag for the amount you get though, but so so worrh it, I also love the oil!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lou_tag from Wow best tan I have ever had! I bought this for a trip to Turkey from the Glasgow store. Was told not to expect any colour for about 4 days and she was absolutely correct. Best overall colour even my legs tanned and that never happens. I didn't burn - I'm blonde and have blue eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cookie5 from Favourite sunscreen I have been using this product for a few years now, tried other sunscreens as this one is quite expensive, but I have always gone back to it. Very easy to apply, great smell, leaves skin feeling moisturised with exellent protection, will not go in the sun without this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elena2 from Amazing product!! I used this product for 5 days holidaying in Spain. I developed a deep tan and I didn't burn at all in 33degree heat. I usually would buy SPF suncreams from highstreet drugstores, but not anymore! It did not make my troublesome skin breakout either which is an added bonus. I love this product and will continue to buy it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Steffi from Leaves a bitty residue I'm sure it's a good cream but after application everything that touched my skin made the cream go into little papy bits. I ended up cover with little white bits all over. Horrid and won't be used again. I'm very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jessjess123 from Great for pale skin I am pale. I find it really hard to tan without burning. Since using these products (moderate for body and 'strong' for my face) I get a lovely golden tan and don't peel! I spend peak hours under an umbrella but we have just been to Ibiza and it was 30degrees and I am brown! Best investment for pale skin!!
