Asda kids lotion spf 30
On a recent family holiday, we had to ensure we had creams for the whole family. Although I have never used the Asda range of sun products, the sun cream was recommended by a friend whose son suffers from eczema, and since grandson had mild eczema when very young, I thought it would be a worthy option.
The product claims to :
* Be extra water resistant
* Dermatologically tested
* Suitable for sensitive skin
* Provide up to 30 times the skin's natural protection
**How does it do this?...**
The product contains a range of ingredients to ensure it is suitable for delicate skin which is not acclimatised to the sun. UVA and UVB filters provide protection against premature skin ageing, there are moisturisers to prevent skin drying and Vitamin E to protect against skin damage.
**Product and Packaging...**
The cream comes in a 200ml plastic bottle with all of the information and instructions on the back. It has a flip up/down lid and the cream is dispensed by giving the bottle a bit of a squeeze. The cream itself is white and thick with a very faint floral smell which surprised me as I thought it would be odourless. Because it is a thick cream, a little does go a long way and it takes quite a lot of massaging into the skin before the cream is fully absorbed.
**How to use it...**
It is advised that the product is applied 15 minutes before sun exposure, 15 minutes later and then every 1-2 hours especially after swimming.
There are a number of warnings most of which are common sense, and which include:
* Avoid contact with fabrics as the filters could stain
* Avoid the midday sun
**Price and Availability...**
The cream costs £5 for 200ml and is available instore and online
Asda will apparently refund money if not satisfied with the product so it's a win win situation!
The product conforms to all of the European regulations about UVA and UVB rays and our use of the product has convinced me that this will indeed be true.
It does take some rubbing in but once absorbed it prevented any burning and kept his skin moisturised- not even any redness or heat rash. Because he has sensitive skin we did try out the product before we came away and even when used and applied in the sun, there were no adverse skin reactions.
Reasonably priced, and effective, I would recommend this
Thanks for reading
