Forget the bright "for kids" label slapped over the dinky, little Nivea sunscreen bottle, it is just that a label and trust me when I say your handbag, glove-box and drawer at the office, needs a blue bottle or two. Yes Nivea Sun Kids Pocket Size SPF50 will undoubtedly be the ideal choice for children (well I assume so anyway) but it is also the most wonderful, on-the-go SPF protection option that is both gentle and affordable, not to mention it won't weigh down your bag.
Ask yourself what do you want and need from a SPF? Personally I look for a high factor SPF(I never use anything less than an SPF30), both UVA and UVB protection and a lightweight, comfortable formulation and texture. Bizarrely Nivea Sun Kids Pocket Size SPF50 offers all of the above and more; yes Nivea Sun Kids Pocket Size SPF50 is a thicker than average sunscreen option but it does not clog the pores, is non-greasy, quick to absorb and waterproof to boot. If that is not enough Nivea Sun Kids Pocket Size SPF50 is suitable for both the body and face.
Now I know what you are thinking, why go for the child friendly version over your typical, find-everywhere SPF? It's simple really, the waterproof function also helps control excess oil, sweat and the general signs of humidity; as well as protecting the skin against the harmful SPF rays, Nivea Sun Kids Pocket Size SPF50 almost acts as a primer too without the need for several products. If you are a little iffy about applying a non-facial specific SPF to the face, do keep in mind that Nivea Sun Kids Pocket Size SPF50 has been formulated not only for the delicate skin of children but also babies. I can assure you that this do-it-all sunscreen will not irritate the complexion, and as such is perfectly safe even for those like myself who suffer from acne.
Admittedly I don't use this on my face daily but do have it to hand to apply to my hands and any exposed areas should the sun make an appearance. We've all been there, suddenly the British sun appears and you are left high and dry with no SPF protection, well now you have no excuse for burning or leaving your skin exposed. Let this be the Summer that you are utterly prepared and dare I say a little smug!
