We’ve just come back from a (mostly) warm and sunny week camping in Weymouth. I seemed to have packed about 4 different sun creams or sprays in our luggage to cater for both myself and N, but one that we both like using is from Green People.
I’ve tended to use the Green People sun lotion in the past for N because I found it didn’t irritate his skin like other sun creams. We’ve recently been sent the new children’s un-fragranced spf 30 sun lotion.
I’ve never been one for using factor 50 sun lotion (we never go abroad to hot enough places to warrant it), so the new factor 30 is great. It’s the maximum I’d use in the UK (the previous one we used was spf 25). The mere 1% extra UVB protection that spf50 has over spf30, makes you wonder why you’d need the extra.
We just slap on sun lotion as and when needed, and don’t worry much more about it. I do generally prefer a spray for reaching other places that I can’t do myself, but thicker creams feel a bit more safe in that I know how much we’ve put on and where.
The Green People sun lotion soaks in really quickly and doesn’t leave skin greasy. N’s quite happy to put it on himself which is always reassuring. Although his skin seems less sensitive now, I like the fact that it’s organic, has soothing Aloe Vera and Chamomile in and with no chemicals it’s marine friendly. If you tend to buy ethical products it’s worth trying out.
A 150ml tube tends to last all summer when I send it to nursery with him, so the rrp £16.99 is good value.
