    In Cyprus we used Boots own brand kids factor 50 once a day which gave up to 3 hours water protection and 6 hours normal protection. It did its job beautifully.

    But...

    It's like plastering yourself in lard everytime you put it on. It's so thick it's hard to rub in and you can see residue sitting on your skin. And it stains clothing terribly.

    So I'm looking for alternatives please.

    I don't know if it is available in the UK or not but Banana Boat and Coppertone both make a spray on SPF50.

    Yeah my sister in law swears by P20 but I'm not sure about using it on an 8 year old's skin.

    Since moving to Florida we have been using this brand......No Ad Sunblock SPF 50 Sport.



    It was recently rated as one of the best for protection and one the of greatest sunblock values. You can find this at Wal-Mart and Kmart.

    Ambre Solair factor 50 spray - its a clear one and leaves no marks, i got fed up on the stains on dd's light clothing in the summer. Have you seen those turquoise ones for kids? I cant look at the bottle without thinking about the stains it must leave!
