Garnier Ambre Solaire Kids Protection Lotion SPF30 200ml
Garnier Ambre Solaire Kids Protection Lotion SPF30 200ml
Price: £4.79

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice kids sunscreen, 25 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This has a very slight, but nice, smell; which reminds me of tinned apricots. It seems to stay on the skin well, especially when playing in water.

Be warned that it is quite liquid, and so may surprise you with the speed that it flows out of the bottle. Make sure your cupped hand is ready to catch it!

I like the design of the flip cap, which seems nice and secure, yet is easy to operate.

It leaves a slightly milky, oily residue on the skin and takes some time to absorb. So, if you want a sunscreen that will leave your little ones grease-free (for immediately putting them in the car for the trip to nursery, for example), or that leaves your own hands grease free, I would recommend one of the other lotions, such as Garnier Ambre Solaire Kids Protection Lotion.

The version we have has 30 Sun Protection Factor (SPF) for UVB radiation, with a three star rating for UVA radiation protection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice sunscreen, easily absorbed, 25 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is more liquid that other sunscreen products in the Garnier range. It is therefore easier to pour and rub in. It is absorbed quickly and leaves the skin soft.

The smell is mild, and okay.

I like the design of the flip cap, which seems nice and secure, yet is easy to operate.

The version we have has 20 Sun Protection Factor (SPF) for UVB radiation, with a three star rating for UVA radiation protection.

It’s a pity there isn’t a version stronger than SPF30.

Garnier Ambre Solaire Kids Wet Skin Lotion SPF50 150ml
Price: £4.79

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for little paddlers, 24 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This sunscreen is easy to apply, even on wet skin. It’s great for the paddling pool or beach.

It leaves a slightly water repellent residue on the skin, which is a little oily at first, but soon gets absorbed. Even so, if you want a sunscreen that will leave your little ones grease-free very quickly (for putting them in the car for nursey, for example), I would recommend one of the other lotions, such as Garnier Ambre Solaire Kids Protection Lotion.

The version we have has 50 Sun Protection Factor (SPF) for UVB radiation, with a three star rating for UVA radiation protection.


Garnier Ambre Solaire Protection Mini Lotion SPF50 50ml
Garnier Ambre Solaire Protection Mini Lotion SPF50 50ml
Price: £3.39

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice sunscreen, 21 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Garnier sunscreen is reasonably non greasy and easily absorbed, leaving your skin feeling clean and soft. The smell is fairly mild and not unpleasant.

The version I used has 50 Sun Protection Factor (SPF) for UVB radiation, with a three star rating for UVA radiation protection. There are some products with a 50 SPF and 5 star UVB protection, which, assuming the accuracy of claims and testing, would offer even more protection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and clever, 20 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I’m impressed by this, as, more importantly, is my five-year-old. Included in the kit are a colouring book and felt pens, including two “magic” pens, which erase the colour from the other pens, so can be used to add white markings and patterns. Admittedly, this is not very impressive on its own. But when the pages of the colouring book are coloured in and then scanned with the free Bic DrawyBook app, the app will turn the page into an animated scene of the story.

For example, one of the pages includes a picture with an uncoloured rocket. The child colours the rocket and then scans the page and the app shows the page as an animation with the coloured rocket blasting off, complete with narration and sound effects. It’s all rather clever and great fun.

By the way, the app also includes a version of the story that can be used without the colouring book. That version isn’t quite so impressive, but it will still allow hand-drawn objects to be scanned and integrated into the animations.

The story itself is simple, but fun, and includes some educational facts about the solar system.

I’ve tested the app on an old iPad and an Android Samsung tablet. It seems fine on both, although there have been a couple of occasions when it closed without apparent cause. Also, be prepared to pay around with the app to find out how it works. It’s pretty simple once you get used to it, but I found the instructions ambiguous in places.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good battery charger, 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This charges the batteries fast,taking about one hour. The lights that indicate the charging are clear and effective. There is a very slight high-pitched sound when the batteries are charging, but it's barely noticeable. I've used this charger with other makes of battery without any problems. The supplied Energizer batteries are good, and retain their charge well if left unused for a few weeks after charging.

Having owned it for a few months, I am happy to say that the charger and the batteries continue to work well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvelous CD collection, 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very good collection, especially considering the cheap price. These ten CDs give a wonderful coverage of Birgit Nilsson's repertoire. A couple of the recordings are live, which is noticeable in their recording quality, though this doesn't diminish their beauty. There are no notes, and limited track details, but for this price I don't mind.


Eco Touch Waterless Car Wash Kit
Eco Touch Waterless Car Wash Kit
Offered by Eco Touch UK
Price: £10.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for a quick clean, 18 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This cleans the car well and doesn't leave any residue or staining on plastic. I've had one bottle for a few months, and it is lasting well. I've used it on two cars, one old, one new, and have no complaints.

It leaves the car fairly shiny and is quick to apply and buff. It's not quite as good as a proper wash and and polish. Likewise, the shine and water repellent beading from this product doesn't last quite as long. But for a quick clean, this is a good product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Charming book, 18 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
What a charming little book! The story is a simple tale about a young girl, Polly, and her puffin who wait for their father’s trawler to return to harbour. There is enough going on in the story to captivate young children – my 3 and 5 year olds where totally engrossed over the two nights I read them this bedtime story. It’s also a story that parents will enjoy reading. I particularly liked the descriptions of the storm, with the boat masts jangling louder and louder, and the way that Polly’s mum quells Polly’s tantrum. The story also manages to include a few nice facts for the children to appreciate – the oily coating on the puffins’ feathers, for example
.
As well as the story, the book includes a few pages of activities, recipes and rhymes. The illustrations throughout the book are delightful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice, non-greasy, easily absorbed lotion, 18 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Applying sunscreen to young children can be a real pain, especially when trying to get them ready for nursery. I’ve tried many lotions that leave messy layers of white grease on my hands, or on the child’s face, legs or arms, from where it smears to eyes, carpets, car seats, door handles, everywhere.

This Garnier sunscreen, though, is great. It’s non-greasy and easily absorbed – your hands feel clean and soft after applying this. The smell is barely noticeable, and is the pleasant scent of holidays.
