We spoke to these real parent testers to get their review...

How did this product make your life easier?

Georgina: The roll on makes it so much quicker to apply to my 10 month old baby who is now walking so he can be very wriggly and more difficult to pin down while I open a cream bottle, squirt in my hand and then apply to him. Rolling it on allows me to be able to do it all with one hand while I have the other hand to rub in. It is also super thin and absorbs so quickly for a factor 50 which is nice as most of them are quite thick and take a lot of time to rub in which, like I said earlier, with a 10 month old isn't always easy! I was able to apply it to my little boy's arms and legs in less than a minute. It's also a nice size and can fit in the nappy bag!

Stephanie: The roll on applicator makes life as a mum much easier as my baby likes the sensation and thinks it’s very amusing which means he is more compliant when I am trying to put cream on him and wriggles less. It's also a very high factor so I feel confident that he has good coverage from the sun for a long period.

Katrina: Wow! What a great product, this couldn't have been delivered at a better time - we started using the same day and haven't stopped! It's great, the design is perfect, the size is great to fit in an already crammed changing bag! It's also been handy for my 7 year old to put in his book bag for school and the design makes it easy for him to apply on his own, so I can be confident that he is protected from the sun at school too. Very quick and easy to apply on my very wriggle 7 month old as well. Great product, love it!

Would you recommend this product to other parents?

Katrina: I've already recommended it to many mum friends with kids of all ages! The design is brilliant and the actual lotion inside it easily applies and easily absorbs into the skin. The roller ball moves about easily and it's a real handy size for carrying about. I found it great for all three of my kids, ages 7 months, 4 year and 7 years!

Stephanie: I would definitely recommend this product to my mum friends as the roll on application makes things much easier. It’s a lot less messy than a spray. Some of my mum NCT friends saw me using it and immediately wanted to get some as they could see how easy it was to apply. I also like the size as it fits easily into my bag.

​Donna: I would love to recommend this suncream as it is nice and small and compact for a day out and easy for kids to apply to themselves. Leaves no greasy sticky residue and soaks in quickly for them to enjoy the sun safely all the time.

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?

Georgia: The formula is very smooth and feels like a moisturiser when applying, doesn't make me want to rub my hands on a towel after to get the excess cream from the cracks. I only apply factor 50 to my children so with some brands being very thick and bulky the child gets very agitated with how much you have to run the cream in, especially when putting cream on their face.

Katrina: As a huge fan of child's farm I was very excited to try this product and I have used their sun cream before. I will continue to buy this product as I found it great! A definite winner in my opinion! The lotion is smooth and doesn't feel heavy on the skin and doesn't feel like it's clogging up their skin either.

Donna: I would choose the product to win as it is so easy and gentle on a child's skin and does a great job protecting them from the sun's harmful rays. I loved most that it sank in so quickly leaving no stickiness or greasy residue after applying like most suncream do after applying. So quick and easy to apply also.

What changes would you make to this product?

Donna: There’s not much I would change about this product as it seemed to do a perfect job. If I had to change one thing it would probably be to make it cheaper for the parents that struggle with finances so it was affordable for everyone. I would certainly purchase this product again.

Zoe: There is nothing I would change for children. I’d very much like it if there was a grown up version with a nice scent (preferably coconut). I did use this and loved how it quickly sinks into your skin and leaves it feeling very soft. As someone with very sensitive skin it is a great product to use.

Stephanie: It can be a little bit sticky once you have applied it so perhaps it would be slightly better if the formula was a bit more dry to touch once it has been rubbed in the skin. When I pick up my baby after application I end up covered in sun cream too and it goes on my clothes. But overall a very good product.
