NIVEA Sun Protect & Refresh {Review}

 With the summer sun starting to make it’s appearance and the school holidays just around the corner what better time to start thinking about protecting my families skin against the harmful rays and risk of sun damage.

Roo is very much like Mr Boo in that her skin tans very easily and sometimes it can be easy to forget that she requires sun protection.  Tigger and myself on the other hand are have very fair skin and require high factor sun protection.  We tend to burn so easily so we have to make sure that we are covered in sun lotion before we head out any where.  Whilst we are slapping on our factor 50+, Mr Boo and Roo are applying at least a factor 30, just because they tan instead of burning their skin still needs protection from UVA/UVB rays and sun damage.

NIVEA Sun Protect & Refresh

    I’m like you I need factor 50, I’ve got milk like skin, which when it sees the sun just turns me into a lobster & blisters.

    I sat in the garden, crocheting for half an hour over the last weekend with my factor 50 on but was still a bit red when I came in. Most of my children & hubby tan real easily, but that bit missed me out & because I’m so white most of the time I look silly if I put fake tan on. So white I am & white I’ll stay!
