Best Kids Sunscreens & Beach Bag Essentials

Best Kids Suncreams

Practical, portable and effective: our three best suncreams for kids and a few must-have items for carefree beach and pool days.

The Lightweight Gel: Ultrasun Family 30 SPF
£19
This gel glides on like water and rubs in instantly. It’s great too for really sensitive skin and lasts ages, plus there are no nasties in it. A firm Mr Fox favourite.

The ‘Clean’ OptionClarins 100% Mineral Suncare Milk for Children 50+SPF
£21
Concerned about the toxicity of chemical suncreams? Clarins has you covered. Unlike most 100% mineral sunscreens (which get a bad rap for being too thick and sticky) this goes on beautifully, smells great and is loaded with soothing aloe vera and olive.

 

The Wet Skin Spray: Lancaster Sun Kids SPF 50 Sun Mist
£15
Continuous spray makes application a cinch, especially to top up after a splash in the pool or a race to the sea.

For Mucky Hands: Mrs White’s Travellers’ Organic Hand Sanitiser
£15
Because you never know when you might get caught short. And it’s a handy size to slip into your hand luggage too.

For Dry Skin or Parched Lips: Weleda Calendula Weather Protection Cream
£11
We keep this to hand at all times. Pure beeswax and lanolin form a natural protective layer which is great for great for delicate skin. Particularly useful for blustery British beaches.

For Bumps & Bruises: Pommade Divine, Nature’s Remedy Balm
£28
Antiseptic and anti-inflammatory – this soothing little number comes highly recommended for bumps, chapped skin, grazes and burnt bits.

For Itchy Bites: Para Kito Mosquito Bite Relief
£9
All natural and heaven-scented, this soothing roll-on gel will combat the itch and scratch for all the family.

The Insulated Bottle: S’well Santorini Textile Bottle
£25
Apart from the health benefits of using real stainless steel over plastic bottles, S’well insulation also keeps cold drinks cold for hours on the beach.

The Lightweight Towel: Hammamas Mint Hammam Towel
£25
The definitive beach must-have, these thin, 100 percent cotton towels roll up tight and double as a sarong or coverall for a quick beach bar bite.
