Children are particularly vulnerable to the harmful effects of the sun. What’s more, sun exposure tends to be highest during childhood and that can lead to premature skin ageing effects in adulthood. Children’s skin therefore needs to be protected against harmful rays, which is why Garnier Ambre Solaire, have developed a range especially for children, containing the patented high technology filtration system, Mexoplex for reinforced protection against UV rays, to prevent sun damage due to UVB rays and premature skin ageing caused by UVA rays. The kids range is water and sand resistant.

What we say:
‘We recently went away for a surfing holiday so it was a great way to test the Garnier Ambre Solaire Kids SPF50. As a family we spend a large amount of time at the beach, so I need to know that my son is properly protected, especially being blonde. The first obstacle with applying sunscreen to kids is getting it on them – as most parents know, we know it’s good for them, but they usually hate applying it. The spray nozzle, therefore, is a great addition and gets a fair amount onto them in each spray. He’s also in and out the water, so I always look for a water resistant option – I advise trying it on yourself to see how effective it is. From my point of view it worked really well, not running into your eyes and actually working for up to two hours of surfing time.

‘Garnier’s Ambre Solaire Kids SPF50 has a nice texture and is quite light for a water resistant version, which often tend to be very oily. They claim it to be sand resistant too which is a good thing considering small folks love covering themselves in it from head to toe. The smell is fresh and didn’t seem to offend my son who is very quick to say if he doesn’t like the smell of things. The only downside to this product: avoid white clothes as it does stain, leaving white board shorts yellowed. Will definitely be stocking up on more of this product, which works well for families who spend a lot of time being active at the beach.’

The spray sunscreen is the best. I used it these holidays and the kids loved it. Very convenient and no mess….easy to use and not oily.

Top on my list


Sunscreen is always top on my list when it comes to my two very busy toddlers..they love to play in sun and I hate to see them suffering from sun damage, garnier sunscreens as they are light and non-sticky..

Dont have my own kids, but babysit a friends. This product is a must and is so gentle on the little ones skin. Great protection and peace of mind.

Will definitely be trying this sunscreen on my 16 month old daughter who just loves to swim and be outside!



Keep a baby younger than 6 months out of the sun altogether whenever possible. When that’s not feasible, be sure to protect your young baby/kid with sunscreen from the sun’s harmful rays. If you do use a chemical-based sunscreen, do a patch test first to make sure your child won’t have a reaction to it
