Naturally Cool Kids Competition

I won two Naturally Cool Kids winter products back when I first started blogging in November, you can read more about it here.  I must say back then I was impressed, my boys did not have any reaction to the products, they were easy to apply to their skin and really helped them.  So I am quite excited Naturally Cool Kids were happy to host a competition on my blog.

With the prospect of warm weather looming, well we did have a rare nice day today, its time to start thinking about stocking up on Suntan lotion and protection against any flying bugs that take a fancy to us!  Usually I just waft them away with my hand, but youngest has a small flying bug phobia, so it was with great interest I found bug bands on the Naturally Cool Kids website.  They look pretty trendy and with natural oils deter those biters without chemicals.


For an RRP of £3.95 with 100 hours’ protection, they would be perfect if you planned on taking the kids camping!  I wish I had these available to me back when I was doing Camp America I was eaten alive by mosquitoes, I do not know what is was about me they liked so much, but they could just not get enough!!!  I would have gladly filled my giant rucksack just with bug bands and left everything else at home if it meant I had been left in peace.  You can even wear these bands on your ankles!

The Sunshine Armour Sun Cream (£15.95) sounds like it would smell divine, using natural ingredients including aloe leaf and organic liquorice extracts, coconut and apricot kernel oils.  I have to be careful applying sun cream to my youngest especially on his face, his eyes water and go puffy if it gets anywhere near them, so I like the sound of a very natural product.

They also have a Cool ‘n’ Soothe After Sun Lotion (£9.95) which you can always use on your own skin!  If you are like me and have a habit of making sure the children are ALWAYS covered in Sun Cream, but failing to do yourself.  But either way this would be a welcome treat for the whole family after hitting the beach.  Your skin could be cooled and soothed!


So what have Naturally Cool Kids kindly donated to my prize stash… well they are going to send one winner a Summer Care Pack, consisting of sun cream, after sun and pair of bug bands and then three lucky runner ups shall win a pair of bug bands each.  If you would like to enter please complete the rafflecopter below and this competition will close on the 5th of May.

    I think its really great to find a range of products that look like they will be kind to skin.  I know from experience how horrible it is to be smothered in sun lotion all day and insect repellent at night, my skin really doesn't like it...so yeyyy for kind products!  It would be great to try them!

  34. Love the cheek & lip protector, 100% natural is always good, my gran used to make something up for me when I was little, being very fair skinned & a red head I burn quite easily, only wished I know what it was, as it was made from herb etc. I used to use it on my shoulder & nose & if it was a really hot day or we was at the beach them Mother would cover me in it, as far as I remember it was colourless, but it worked I very rarely got burnt as a child.

  41. The bug band cos I'm allergic to repellent (not sure if my little one is yet) and we're going away soon so this seems like a good idea especially as it doesn't need to be applied to the skin.  Great compromise to prevent any possible problems.

  142. I like the sound of the After Sun cream being very natural. My son is a red-head with the whitest skin, he's my little Milky Bar kid! I have to slather him in factor 50 ( my three other children simply go berry brown in the sun!) but poor Jordan has terrible rashes if the sun hits him, even with the factor 50, so after sun is so important to soothe his poor skin. xxx

    Definitely the bug bands. Why haven't I heard or seen of them before? Bites have made my holidays a misery for years. Apparently we all get bitten but only some of us get the reaction to the bite which makes us itch. I was told this by a doctor when he was treating my son who also suffers, whereas my husband and daughter do not.
