Sudocrem Sunscreen Mousse Review

Given the lack of sun, we just sampled some indoors to give it a whirl.  It is getting close to the time we need to think about kids sun protection but the weather is just not playing ball at the moment!

It was easy to apply; it rubs in well with an even coverage.  My usual brand of factor 50 for my boys tends to turn them completely white and it usually does not shift even with a thorough rubbing in!  So this was a welcome change, as I know when it is sunny I can now send them outdoors without pale pasty complexions resembling Casper’s best buddies!!!

But one thing that lets it down for me is the smell, I love sunscreen to remind me of holidays and this is fragrance free.  No exciting fragrance, just an indifferent sort of smell, although this does make it more suitable for children and babies sensitive skin.   If there were perfumes in the mousse it might irritate them.  So it certainly would not put me off buying it myself, especially as my boys had no adverse reaction to it.

“Lovely, love this on me!” Youngest proclaimed

I think this is a good sunscreen to buy, as Sudocrem is a reliable trustworthy brand, which we used lots when my boys were younger for preventing nappy rash.  Plus a HUGE bonus is that this mousse is more water resistant, my boys love paddling non stop when they are on the beach so I know they are going to be okay and not need constant reapplications.  Especially as getting them to come back for more when they are happy playing is not so easy!

To find out more head over to their website and you can also purchase it online from Boots currently on offer for £10.00 (usually has an RRP of £15 so bit of a deal there!).
