I have the palest skin in the
universe. There really cant be many paler person that me. I
am truly glowing white with a pink undertone. Often described as an
English Rose - mmmm not so sure but luckily I do have good skin (you
watch I will come out in the most humungous zit on my face now)
My two children appear to have
fair skin but one seems to tan quite easily - although he is prepared to
take his top off at the first ray of sunshine. My other son likes
to stay covered which is probably just as well as he like me seems to go
from white to red to a slight hint of brown.
I saw this picture of this
little lad on a beach and thought how painful and uncomfortable sunburn
is. The disturbed nights, the extra upset the child has to go
through after a lovely day out and to be honest - its the parents fault.
I am guilty of my child getting a bit of sunburn when you haven't
realised you have missed a bit but I think often its the non
continued application of cream that causes the issue.
Usually I hate suncream.
I hate that feeling of having the thick cloggy liquid smothered on your
skin coupled with the heat ensuring a beautiful sweaty glow without
have always made sure my children wore cream and although I gave them
some to take to school I am fully aware it stayed in the bag but I know
I have given them the right message.
When I was given the
opportunity to sample the sunsense range I was excited as I do like to
try different ones to see if I will magically find the one that feels ok
to put on regularly and thus result in me actually staying white or the
ever hopeful chance of a little brown seeping through but the pain of
sunburn would not be part of my summer.
The 125ml bottles of toddler
milk and Ultra milk came in a very handy handbag suitable size of 125ml.
The flip lids allow for a controlled measure to come out rather than
ending up with a whole handful you don't know what to do with.
I am so far impressed. I
have put it on my face, arms, neck, shoulders and chest and so far I am
feeling it has absorbed well and feels really quite nice on my skin.
The other thing I hate about many suncreams is that the person putting
them on ends up with exceedingly sticky hands. not so with this -
I would consider not having to wash my hands before eating a sandwich.
My son let me put some on him
and he said it was ok (that's not bad then - take that as a
The lip balm has gone down a
treat here with everyone wanting to wear it - I think they have realised
that blistered and cracked lips is not a good look for Summer. It
feels so smooth and I feel that my lips are being cared for.
The other important factor
with suncreams and this one in particular is the scent. Not offensive in
the slightest. A delicate scent which does not overpower in
On doing a little research
about suncream I really want to make sure you know and remember that you
MUST keep reapplying suncream. It does not work all day.
Once is not enough.
I will definitely be buying
sunsense products from now on as its so easy to use and feels good.
So remember to put on your
suncream as you don't want to have panda eyes like this poor lady.
