Eucerin Sun Kids Spray Review

It’s July.  It’s summer.  We should be thinking about sunhats, sunglasses and sun cream.  Yet just last week I had a conversation on Twitter about whether it would be acceptable to put the heating on . . . Thankfully things seem to be improving though!

Eucerin Sun Kids Spray

Much as Ben loves the summer, it doesn’t particularly love him and he suffers from hayfever, an allergy to nettles, random outbreaks of hives or blotchiness and is allergic to most sun creams we’ve tried.

Being “a ginger”, as we affectionately call him, Ben is more susceptible than most to catching the sun.  He’s well trained in wearing a cap and sunglasses and does so without complaining (or even really needing to be reminded most of the time).  He’s also really good at having his sun cream on (as are the girls if I’m honest.)

Whilst the girls seem to be able to tolerate any sun cream we slap on them, Ben’s skin is infinitely more sensitive and so far we’ve only found one or two brands which don’t seem to irritate his skin.  (And even less which don’t ruin clothes!!  Every summer I seem to destroy t shirts and dresses with that horrible yellowing from sun cream)

Eucerin Sun Kids Spray

Before we went the whole hog and covered him in Eucerin Sun Kids Spray, I sprayed a bit on his back, where he wouldn’t be able to reach, just to check that it didn’t inflame his skin.  There was no reaction whatsoever, though a friend commented that sometimes this is the case until the sun cream interacts with the sun?  I know with Ben though that when I’ve sprayed test patches on his arm before either in the shop or at a friend’s house, we’ve known pretty quickly if it didn’t agree with him.

Thankfully, we’ve finally had some proper sunshine this weekend and have been able to fully test out the Eucerin Sun Kids Spray on Ben’s skin and I’m pleased to say there was no sign of any reaction what so ever!  A win!

Eucerin Sun Kids Spray

Eucerin Sun Kids Spray is free from perfume, colourants and parabens and certainly seems to suit Ben’s sensitive skin.  It’s also extra water-resistant which, as any parent knows, is vitally important when it comes to protecting kids’ skin in the summer months!

    I use this one on my youngest but she never had dry skin and eczema that bad like my oldest. I bought nivea for our holiday.

    I have never heard of Eucerin before, my little girl has sensitive skin too so I will have to try her with this xx

    sun cream is so important at this time of year, especially with the current heat wave. Perfect timing for this and great it is high factor too #TriedTested

    I've not heard of this brand before but will have to give it a go as my youngest's skin is a little sensitive and he suffers with a small patch of eczema. #TriedTested

    The whole yellow suncream thing is horrible!! My husband is also an affectionately named ginger and my son is super fair so this would be great.

    I'm definitely checking this out as I do worry about the amount of chemicals I'm smothering on my toddler #triedtested

  9. July 19, 2016 / 8:07 am

    Good to know about this if my little ones ever get sensitive skin…. Child's farm sunscreen is also supposed to be good for sensitive skin xx #TriedTested

  10. July 19, 2016 / 8:47 am

    so important at this time of year isn't it. This sounds like a better option than most as a lot of them a full of all sorts of chemicals #triedtested

  11. July 19, 2016 / 10:07 am

    I have never heard of this make befire – being ginger I'm nit good in the sun either! #triedtested

    Oh I have never heard of this brand but it sounds great for kids suffering with sensitive skin. My boy is a ginger too but he is quite lucky that his skin seems to tolerate all different brands of sun cream xx #TriedTested

    I hate ruining clothes with sun cream! I apply sun cream to my eldest, make her wear a sun hat but also try and keep her in the shade as much as possible (put her water table in the shade usually helps). For my 5 week old I will be sticking to keeping her in the shade this summer, we love our snooze shade for her pram #triedtested

    Slip,Slap, Slop. Slip on a T-Shirt, Slap on Sunhat, and slop on Sunscreen a high factor. Be Aware of amount of time spent in the sun, limit it. Cool refreshing drinks etc.

    I love any kind of kiddie spray. It's so much easier to just spray them down rather than getting them into a big bear hug to do it! Lovely pics!

  18. July 19, 2016 / 4:39 pm

    lots of liquid, stay in shade and high factor sun block, avoid 11am – 3pm where possible.

  19. July 19, 2016 / 5:26 pm

    I've never heard of this brand before so good to know its great for little ones with sensitive skin, my nephew has a lot of reactions to suncream so it's worth bearing it in mind for him.
    Love your photographs xx

  20. July 19, 2016 / 5:44 pm

    Sun cream is a must! And a sun hat, I always make sure my suncream is waterproof especially when we are at the beach.

    Thanks for featuring my review this week Colette! It's so tricky finding suncream that suits sensitive skin isn't it!

  31. July 22, 2016 / 12:09 pm

    I am exactly the same with lotions, creams etc and I find it really hard to find one that doesn't cause a reaction #triedtested

    Poor Ben! My dad has very sensitive skin and can only ever found one brand of sun cream he can use. I'll have to mention this one to him to try out 🙂

  39. July 25, 2016 / 12:35 pm

    We are exactly the same with monkey and I've lost task of all the different sun lotions we have tried!! He has eczema so it's really tricky, to find one with a high factor is impossible. Have entered so fingered crossed. Thanks for hosting #TriedTested

    I always worry if I put enough sun cream on L, I like that this one with high factor always gives you the re-assurance

  41. July 26, 2016 / 7:58 am

    Sun cream and sun hat and lots of cold drinks

  42. July 26, 2016 / 9:26 pm

    Suncream, hat and water in their own little rucksack so that everyone has their own

    My daughter has eczema and quite sensitive to what goes on her skin so many thanks for recommending this product. As for sun healthy tips, lots of fluids and to limit time spent in the midday sun. Heatstroke in a child is awful.

    Sun cream and a hat on all the time and plenty of water

  45. July 28, 2016 / 3:17 pm

    When going on holiday I like to have a beach tent, high factor suncream, a SPF swim suit and a hat with brim and neck flap. Always try to stay out of mid-day sun and drink plenty of fluids

  46. July 29, 2016 / 12:33 am

    Lots of sun cream applied regularly, and make sure lots of water / liquids are being drunk.
