Solar Buddies have been designed as roll-on, mess free and reusable sunscreen applicators.  Top up with a sunscreen of your choice. Child Friendly and invented by two South Wales mothers who were worried about how their children would be able to independently apply sunscreen in school to protect themselves from the sun, so they decided to do something about it.

I was sent these Solar Buddies applicators to try out and you know what they are brilliant!  For £8.99 I think these are worth their weight in gold. Simply fill them with your favourite sun cream and you have a really very easy to use sun cream applicator that even a 3 year old can use easily and smile whilst doing it!

Tip: We have found this works better with a slightly thicker sun cream as it became a little runny with a thinner one, but the beauty of this is you can easily try different ones out to see which works best for you and your child.

As my kids school now require them to take sun cream in when it’s a sunny day, this ensures they can put it on themselves (really easily) and stay sun safe.

You can buy them here for only £8.99 for one or £17.99 for two Solar Buddies and 2 replacement heads, it’s great value!

This is such a great way to get Children to wear suncream, my girls are independent and love doing things themselves, but it can easily go wrong straight from the bottle
