Garnier Ombrelle Ultra Light Advanced SPF 50 Weightless Body Lotion and 100% Mineral Lotion SPF 50+ for Kids ~ #Review

Summer is finally in full swing.  We are out more often - going to parks, beaches, and camping.  Summer is short so I have planned out their summer holidays.  Of course, before we head out I make sure we all have sun screen on.  I gather them up all in a small basket and set it on the stairs that I know where they are.  It also reminds me to put on their sunscreen and lately I am also carrying one in my bag especially if I know if we are gone all day.  Lately we have been using Garnier Ombrelle Ultra Light Advanced SPF 50 Weightless Body Lotion and 100% Mineral Lotion SPF 50+ for Kids.





Both sunscreens have lightweight and runny, milky texture.  It dries super fast, leaves no odor, and leaves no greasiness on my skin.

I absolutely love using the Ultra Light sunscreen.  I use it all the time.  It is one of my favourite sunscreens to use all over my body. It feels like I am not wearing sunscreen at all.  My hands feels like I have been using a chalk so I would just wash my hands to wash off the powder feeling.

The 100% Mineral Lotion for Kids leaves my skin looking palely white which I don't mind but unfortunately it makers up the inside of the car.  To protect fabric or leather inside the car, try to cover the seats with your beach towels!

Natural sunscreens are more and more sought after by Canadians.  In fact, doctors, dermatologists and  pediatricians are also recommending natural sun filters more often as an ideal form of sun protection for children. Being conscious of its consumers’ needs and their preferences, Ombrelle is thrilled to launch its first 100% mineral lotion for kids. It is the most gentle and delicate sun care ever created by the brand.

INNOVATION
Enriched with titanium dioxide, a sun filter of natural origin, this lotion’s formula offers a high protection that helps prevent sunburn.  Offered in SPF 50+, Ombrelle’s new mineral lotion provides a  broad-spectrum protection that is highly effective against UVA and UVB rays. Created specifically for the delicate skin of children, this sunscreen will protect even the most sensitive or prone to rashes skin.

DID YOU KNOW? 
There is only two natural ingredients in mineral sun protection - zinc and titanium. While some natural sun lotions utilize a combination of these two ingredients, Ombrelle only uses titanium, as it provides more efficient protection against UVA and UVB rays.

  5. I didn't know there were two ingredients that make a sunscreen work, if you will.. I haven't tried this line yet, but it sounds great - I prefer a lotion that doesn't feel like it's on!

  15. I didn't know that Garnier made an SPF 50 lotion. I like a sunscreen that's light weight and fast drying , so this would be a good one for me.

  16. We will still need to protect our skin this fall. I know we have had some nice days here. I am right out of sunscreen so I think I will give Ombrelle a try this time.

  19. SPF 50 is always good news. Thanks for an honest review I do like the sound of this one, lightweight and dries quickly. The kids one I don't like so much, knowing kids they'd never manage to sit still on a towel and I wouldn't want that all over my car seats, nor the kids car seats. :-)
