With the weather recently being so hit and miss I've been caught out in the sun protection department. The kids have gone off to school in their Winter coats but by lunchtime the rain has cleared and it's baking hot and I worry that they're not protected from the sun. I don't have enough bottles of sun lotion for them to keep one at school so when it's looking like a nice day they usually have a covering and then one of them takes the bottle so they can apply another coating at lunchtime. I can rely on Hanna to do this but I know Sam won't. So when I received some Ultrasun suncream to try out it couldn't have arrived at a better time. As it's a 'once a day' formula all I need to do is apply it on the children in the morning and it will protect them all day and I don't need to rely on them to apply their own at lunchtimes.

The cream went on nicely and wasn't thick and greasy like many high protection creams and being non staining is a bonus when the school uniform is a white polo shirt. Although the cream is not perfumed it did have a pleasant scent. I tried out the aftersun on myself as an alternative to the Avon aftersun that I use on a daily basis as a moisturiser. I don't like heavy creams that make my face feel greasy and the Ultrasun aftersun didn't disappoint. It was very light and rubbed into my skin easily and didn't make my face feel sore or tight like it has done with many moisturisers. It's probably a bit of an extravagence using the aftersun in this was as it's quite expensive but I shall now be saving the rest for when I go to the Glastonbury Festival in a couple of weeks when hopefully my skin will be in need of a bit of soothing after over exposure to the sun!
