As our holiday approached I had already purchased our P20 SPF 20 Sun Protection as we have used it previously and love it. However I did have concerns with the children as both are fair, although Joshua (aged 2) more so.
So when I was given the opportunity to try out P20’s new products the SPF 30 and SPF 50 I really jumped at the chance.
Here is the low down of the P20 Sun Protection Range:
- Spray or lotion
- P20 products are clear and quick drying
- They have photostable UVA and UVB filters
- Just one application gives you 10 hours reliable sun protection
- P20 retains its long lasting protection even with frequent swimming
- no added fragrance, colourants, parabens or preservatives
So how did we find it? …. Fantastic! The SPF 30 & 50 both came in a spray bottle for super easy application and we found that once it had soaked in you couldn’t feel it. We coated both children first thing in the morning and with temperatures of 32+ we did make the decision to reapply after lunch as both children never got out the pool! Even though we made that choice it was still far better than re-applying every hour like you have to with most other products!
The product does have a smell (although not offensive) when you first apply but after the product has sunk in after a few minutes the smell had gone.
Bethany’s face did get a little red from the sun however this was entirely down to a pre-teen knowing best and not applying to her face! … so this was by no means down to the product.
I really do worry about making sure my skin and that of the children’s is really well protected especially as they are really fair and I have LOTS of moles, however I did feel that this product ensured we were protected as much as possible and that for me alleviated a lot of anxiety.
We loved the fact that even though we used P20 SPF 50 on Joshua he still tanned a little without burning which was fantastic.
The Riemann’s P20 range is not the cheapest on the market but for us a little went a long way so in the long run it was certainly no more expensive than any other product. We are due to go away again shortly and we will be ensuring that the P20 is packed!
Thanks Riemann P20 for yet more fantastic products in the range!
