Green People Sun Lotion Review
Middle man has sensitive skin. I thought we had cracked his issue last year with a low factor sun cream applied often, but on our trip to Turkey this year he came up in a rash again as did little man. I was therefore excited to be given the chance to review Green People Organic Children Sun Lotion and Aloe Vera After Sun Lotion. They aren't cheap, with the sun lotion retailing at £16.95 and after sun at £10.50. But as I don't want my children coming out in a rash I am willing to pay this if it works. The idea for the company was born out of a desire to treat childhood eczema and skin allergies. They state that it is an organic secnt free sun lotion SPF25 which is made without parabens, alcohol (ethyl alcohol, ethanol), lanolin, methylisothiazolinone, methylchloroisothiazolinone, phthalates, artificial perfumes, petrochemicals and colourants to bring you the purest children's sun lotion that nature can offer.
Last week we had a couple of sunny days so I got the chance to try the creams out. The sun lotion is quite thick and does require some rubbing in, however, I am pleased to say that both my boys were fine with it so I will be continuing to use it. The after sun again needs a bit of rubbing in but less than the sun lotion. I must admit that I don't usually use after sun so I will need to use this a bit more until I am convinced that it is worth spending £10.50 on.
The company also sells a range of skin, hair and body care products. If you have a child that has eczema or allergies I would recommend that you give them a go (some products can be purchased in a trail size) I am really pleased to have found a sun cream with a medium factor that my boys can wear without an allergic reaction.
I was given the products for the purpose of this review but the opinions contained here are my own.
