We were sent the sun creams for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are our own.
I’ve mentioned the Childs Farm brand a few times here on the blog and talked about my love of it. I find that they make great products for babies and some of you may also recall the large media coverage they received when someone claimed it worked wonders on her child’s eczema. I decided to give it a go on Jack’s and it did reduce it by quite a lot so when they offered me the chance to review their new range of sun creams, I had to give them a try.
This review has been a while in the making as it seemed for a while we wouldn’t have much decent weather to try them out in – but the weather must have heard my prayers and these recent heatwaves have been the perfect time to try them out.This new sun care range is suitable for those with sensitive and also eczema-prone skin . They are a new formula suncream, spray and roll-on aimed at children who suffer from skin complaints during warm weather – which is equally suitable for adult skin. Sounded perfect for trying on Jack’s sensitive skin and also Olivia’s baby soft skin. It is available at the Childs Farm website or Boots online, plus Waitrose, Asda, Ocado and Boots in store.
But how is the Childs Farm suncream different? Developed for sensitive and eczema prone skin the gentle, unscented formula offers long lasting protection using organic filters to block damaging UVA and UVB rays.
In a user trial of 100 children with medically diagnosed eczema, aged between 0 and 18 months, 89% of parents said they would recommend the Childs Farm sun cream products to other parents of children with medically diagnosed eczema; 94% of parents said the products were easy to spread and 87% said that they were easy to absorb.
Now I must admit I wasn’t sure how to approach this review. What can you say about sun cream? After discussion with Steve, here’s our thoughts on the three new items in the Childs Farm range.
This cream is a 50+ SPF sun cream, water resistant UVA and UVB with very high protection. We’ve been using this on extremely hot days – especially when the kids are in the paddling pool. I want to make sure they’re fully protected and this cream claimed to offer very high protection. Did it work? Well my children haven’t had any sunburn whilst using it and unlike some sun creams which can be too thick, gloopy and hard to handle, this was easy to apply – even Jack can apply it carefully without too much mess. This retails at £12 and is available from Boots, Waitrose, Ocado, Amazon and childsfarm.com.
Now you can probably tell how much we’ve been using this sun spray as we even managed to lose the lid before I managed to take photos, oops. This has been a staple in our nappy bag for quick top ups as we are walking around the village and is lasting well, despite the consistent use. Again it is 50+ SPF, high protection and retails at £12. It is available exclusively in Boots stores nationwide.
Finally we tried the 70ml 50+ SPF Roll-on sun cream which retails at £10. This was the one we started using last but has already made it into daily rotation. Jack always applies this before he goes to school and this is great as it really gives him some responsibility. He can apply it easily without any mess and can control exactly how much he is applying which is great. With two children to slather in sun cream every morning, it is so handy to know that I can let Jack apply himself whilst I can oversee him and apply sun cream to his sister. This is available exclusively in Boots stores nationwide from 2018; you can find it in the baby and child aisle.
