It’s the time of year where everyone is buying sun cream products and it’s always so hard to decide which brand to go for. As a redhead who got burnt often as a child I am completely overprotective when it comes to the children and their sun exposure so much so that I tend to buy the most expensive brands of sun lotion – when they’re on promotion.

I also wear sun lotion to protect against premature ageing caused by the sun and protection against premature skin damage as well as safety protection against harmful uvb rays.

When I was given the opportunity to review the Aloha UltraLite sun cream range I was a little dubious. Could a sun protection lotion do the job for Dave, the kids and I, all for less than £3 a bottle at standard price? I have never known sun cream to be so cheap so I just had to try it.

Review: Aloha UltraLite Sun Cream
Aloha Sun Cream range

What is the Aloha Sun Cream range?

The sun care range comes in Aloha SPF 8, 15, 25 and 40 for kids. This gives a great selection of factors and means that the children, Dave and I all have our own factors of preference – Dave choosing lower ones and the kids and I always using the higher ones. Kids sun protection is just so important and part of our skin care regime we’ve had throughout their lives.

The Aloha sun protection applied really well to my skin, was easily absorbed and wasn’t a greasy lotion – two things I like to see in a sunscreen! It also smells really nice and works well – we re apply every couple of hours out of habit anyway but none of us got burnt at any point when wearing it – definitely the main thing! It’s also water resistant and the kids version is tinted slightly blue which makes application that bit easier.

Aloha UltraLite sun cream is available from Savers stores with an RRP from £2.99 and also has an aloe vera Aloha sun protection after sun gel in the range and spray versions too.
