Anthelios Dermo-Kids with La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water

So the sun is shining WOO HOO and everybody is in great form - sure isn't Ireland absolutely beautiful when the sun shines?  Of course this sends most of us scrambling for a bit of sun protection - I am using a high factor because personally I am scared of wrinkles (vain I know) but a lot of people are trying to protect their little dears from the sun's rays which can be so damaging on children's skin especially when we are not used to it.

I have a 3 year old nephew and apart from being adorable (seriously the kid is adorable), he also happens to have very sensitive skin.  Like myself he is half ginger so sun protection is really important for his skin, but he is allergic to most sun lotions.  When his mam first put sun lotions on him he broke out from a rash - which she thought was a heat rash - these were sun lotions specifically made for kids and he still broke out in a rash.  If he didn't break out immediately the most they could get was until the end of the day and if the lotion wasn't washed off the poor mite was covered in a rash. Madness especially when the lotions that were being used were specifically for kids.  Every product for sensitive skin and for children had been tried and all of them broke him out in a rash.

So the sun shining was a bit of a nightmare, he needed sun protection but it broke him out.   La Roche- Posay to the rescue.  My sister in law picked up Anthelios Dermo-Kids with La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water and miracle of miracles (I expect nothing less from  La Roche-Posay at this stage) it was perfect, it didn't break him out even if they didn't wash it off in the evenings. 


I am a huge fan of La Roche-Posay. It never lets me down, so I was delighted that it worked out perfectly for my nephew (without my urging might I add).   Anthelios Dermo-Kids with La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water has Ultra Protection against UVA rays, Anthelios exclusive filtering system with Mexoryl ®SX and Mexoryl ®XL ensures it also has been tested for resistance against water, sand and sweat and whats great for my nephew it has been tested under dermatological control and under pediatric control so that it's safe on the most sensitive skin types.   It's easily absorbed which is great when you have a squirming 3 year old trying to jump around and play.

The range has two different products - a spray (very easy for the beach) which has a RRP pf €22.50  and the Lotion which has a RRP of €20.50.  This has been a bit of a saviour and if I am being honest I nicked a bit of this myself (SPF 50 will keep my face looking wrinkle free) so it's great for the whole family.   I am thinking that the spray will be great for himself cause he refuses to apply any kind of sun protection so if I could discreetly spray it on him it would stop me having to endlessly apply aftersun after he gets burned (happens every freaking year).   Long may the need for Anthelios Dermo-Kids with La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water continue.  

When we were out and about in Penneys on Sunday the little cutie took a hat and put in on his back "I'm a snail" he said as he got on the floor, we took the hat off him and told him he couldn't be a snail with no house to which he replied "Now I'm a Slug".   You can't argue with that kinda genius from a 3 year old.
