Protecting our children’s skin with Garnier sun cream campaign

Protecting my children’s skin is one of my top priorities when the sun decides to come out to play, {up there with keeping them hydrated, of course}. Tots 100 have teamed up with Garnier for their Sun cream campaign and they have some pretty cool sun cream products that I had personally never heard of before, so I’m going to share them with you guys.

Now before you get all judgy, I know it’s almost October and the sun coming out to play around this time of year can be pretty slim. However, here in Northern Ireland, June, July & August can be pretty gloomy months for us and surprisingly {and unbeknown to me as to why} September & October can be quite lovely for us, weather-wise…..sometimes. Plus, there have been quite a few families that I’ve seen on my social media feeds jetting off to a cheeky little sun, sea and sand holiday before the most festive time of the year pays us a visit. I’m not jealous at all. I promise, {I’m totally lying!}.

So, joining in with Tots 100 and Garnier’s sun cream campaign I’m going to share two product with you guys, firstly I’m going to talk about their wet skin lotion. The Garnier Ambre Solaire Wet skin lotion, unlike a lot of other sun cream lotions out there, can be applied to your child’s skin even when wet. Other sun cream products have been known to provide less protection when applied to wet skin so Garnier has created this unique lotion that allows you to apply it to your child’s skin fresh from the pool whilst still providing a high level of sun protection.

The second product I’m going to share with you guys {and quite personally I think it’s a genius idea!} is the Garnier Ambre Solaire Anti-sand spray SPF50.
garnier-ambre-solaire-kids-anti-sand-spray-spf50-hrI just love the idea of this product because let’s face it, we’ve all been there, haven’t we! On the beach, sun beating down, a wet child coming out of the water onto the sand and trying to get the sand off the limbs of a child can be a stressful job {and quite painful too – do you remember the days your parents tried to wipe the sand off your legs and toes? I do!!}. So, for Garnier to create this super cool sand repelling {whilst providing sun protection} product is pretty cool in my book.

I know which two products I’ll be making sure are in our travel cases on our next sun-fueled day trip or family holiday!

Disclosure: I was compensated for my time for writing up this post by Tots100 and it’s a collaboration with Garnier’s Sun cream campaign.

    I may have to try this myself as I took a severe allergy to some Nivea suntan lotion myself this year.
