Bonjour lecteurs! The Summer holiday is upon us and I am sure you will spend more time than ever out and about with your little ones! I have been loving spending some time in the garden with Baba! En plus, we tested a super cool product to help with sun protection! Indeed, have a look now at our new Solar Buddies Review. And because you might fall in love with its smart concept, you can also win a Solar Buddies Single Applicator worth £8.99. Have fun playing with our new giveaway peeps!
Solar Buddies Sunscreen Applicators
Solar Buddies are more than a sweet name! Indeed, le concept est simple!
Designed by two mums, these refillable applicators allow you to use a sunscreen of your choice and help your children being more independent with it.
It is a pretty cool idée! You fill your applicator with some cream of your choice and because of its small size, you can pack it every time you go and out and about.
Exit the sticky hands at the beach with this cute roll-on sun cream applicator!
We tested this award-winning product for you and here are our thoughts!
Our Solar Buddies Applicator
We received our Solar Buddies Sunscreen Applicator a couple of weeks ago and it has proved very useful so far!
It is very cute and super child-friendly with its shape. Baba also loves the cool colours (you can go for a pink bottom for girls).
It is light and super easy to use.
How To Use it
C’est très simple!
- Remove the applicator head
- Fill the bottle with the sunscreen of your choice
- Close it again
And now, the big question is… Can children really use it on its own? Well, oui!
Baba is only 3 and yet he loves the independence of it.
Actually, he liked it so much he was even very eager to help us in the process of filling it up too!
More than 1 kid? Get several and label each one 🙂
Solar Buddies – Such A Clever Idea!
I can’t believe nobody thought about this before! Solar Buddies are such a good idée!
Not only it means your child can be more independent, but it is so handy for all the famille!
Initially designed as a product to help teachers apply sun protection to their pupils (with the ‘No Touch’ policy that many schools have these days), it is now a key summer item for families!
We absolutely love ours.
Refillable, (I wish the head was not so wobbly upside down when you fill it up though), it is so easy to use!
What We really Loved With Solar Buddies
- it’s reusable and so child-friendly
- the applicator provides my Baba with some independence (still, make sure kids apply it all over their body)
- no more leak in your bag (you know, when your sun cream opens up…)
- the roller head runs smoothly and no more messy hands (no sandy hands either on the beach!)
- you can also buy applicators in packs if you have more than one child
- it’s so small you can pack it in any bag
Solar Buddies Review – Le Verdict
I tell you now, our solar Buddies applicator is a real succés! We have been using it each time we were out and about and I can not wait to take it on our next trip to the beach.
It is super cool and easy to use.
More importantly, it is fabulous for Baba to stay protected while he is at the nursery.
I don’t know about you, but Baba is always on the move. Before Solar Buddies, it was sometimes a mission to make sure he was entirely protected.
It would take me forever to apply all the cream and make sure I did not miss a key body part. He can sometimes be in a rush to go back to play…
But we never had this problème with this super sweet gadget. Baba loves doing it himself and each application gives him some good protection.
It also teaches children about the importance to protect their skin from the sun!
Furthermore, at a retail price of £8.99 (it gets cheaper if you get a pack), it is a super practical product you want to get ASAP!
