The sun came out last week and I couldn’t find any sun cream!! Managed to find a pocket one to cover Jack in. It was a whole new experience, last year he sat patiently while I did this, this year it involved wriggling, wrestling and lots of no, no, no!
Luckily I had bought a couple of hats in Mothercare for Jack but need to buy cream for Jack and his two half brothers.
As usual their are deals everywhere on kids/baby sun lotions.
Boots and Sainsbury’s are selling Nivea 200ml (various types) at 2 for £13. Morrisons have £2 off. The best deals though are in ASDA, just £5 a bottle and Tesco in their buy one get one free deal. On the high street, Superdrug is also less than 1/2 price working out roughly the same as ASDA and Tesco.
Ambre Solaire is in the 2 for £13 deal in Boots and included in Superdrug’s better than 1/2 price deal.
Banana Boat kids is in Superdrug’s 1/2 price deal along with the aloe vera after sun gel. I love this, being a gel it goes on nicely and is lovely and cooling. In Boots the kids and baby varieties, along with the after sun gel are buy one get one free.
I’ve always bought the Boots Soltan lotions. Just to confuse you, they have some in a 2 for £11 deal and a selection are on a £4.50 or £5.50 offer.
Superdrug’s Solait range includes baby and kids. These are also in the better than 1/2 deal.
Morrisons also have a selection at £3.50 or 2 for £6.
Hats and stuff
Don’t forget their hats, if you can persuade little ones to keep it on. It’s a bit hit and miss with Jack. I’ve bought a couple of nice hats for Jack from Mothercare which were really good value. One for out and about and another for paddling in the garden or at the beach.
Popped into JoJo Maman Bébé yesterday. Just love the stuff in there and bought Jack this towelling pull-on for the garden and beach. Found a 10% discount code while shopping so saved some money :). Code is MTF51 and can be used in-store and online in April.
Last year we bought a kids’ gazebo from ASDA to cover the paddling pool, as usual, good prices in ASDA.
Enjoy the sun next week if you can !
