Lancaster Sun Sensitive Water Resistant Milky Spray For Kids SPF50+ Review

If you’re a parent or guardian, you’ll know how just delicate your little one’s skin is, especially in the sun! That’s why it’s always important to keep them safe by choosing to sit in shady spots where possible and by encouraging them to wear sun hats.

And of course, one of the most important things is to ensure that they wear sunscreen. And if you’re on the hunt for a new sun lotion for your little one, I think you’ll love Lancaster’s Water Resistant Milky Spray For Kids SPF50+


The Most Important Thing About This Sunscreen Is…

A must-have for any family, Lancaster’s sun protection for children is designed for kids over the age of three. Of course, it prioritises very high broad-spectrum protection to keep little ones safe against every single type of solar ray, but it also makes application easy and child-friendly.


You Will Love This If…

If you’re a parent or a carer, you might sometimes struggle to get your kid to wear sunscreen – we’re all familiar with the complaints that they’re too thick or too heavy. But that’s exactly why you’ll love this one; it doesn’t give the little ones any reason to grumble, all thanks to its super-lightweight and invisible-looking texture. They might even forget they’re wearing it!


The Formula:

Just like every other sunscreen in Lancaster’s sensitive skin-friendly collection, the SPF50+ Milky Spray combines Lancaster’s Full Light Technology. It targets 100% of the sun’s spectrum; yes, that’s UVB and UVA, along with infrared rays and visible light – but the formula doesn’t stop there. It also has a natural-origin Sunsicalm Complex to soothe and preserve sensitive skin against sun-induced damages.

But as this is a formula for kids, it has a few extra benefits thrown in for good measure. Its no-tears formula is fragrance-free and boasts an anti-sand performance. One of the best bits? You can even apply it to wet skin, so it’s ideal for taking on family holidays.

But it’s not just your little ones that this sunscreen looks after; it’s also respectful of the natural environment. The formula is clean, vegan, and water-resistant, plus it doesn’t contain oxybenzone, octinoxate, octocrylene, and homosalate filters. Instead, the sunscreen features a biodegradable base and centres around ocean-friendly sun filters to respect marine life.


The Texture

The sunscreen has a lightweight, milk-like, liquid mist texture that is slightly noticeable to the touch once blended in, but it isn’t heavy or irritating.


The Finish

The SPF mist blends in with ease for an invisible finish.


How Should You Apply It?

Suitable for use from three years of age.

Shake well before use. Spritz a generous, even layer all over the body before sun exposure, and work into the skin. To apply to the child’s face, spray into the palm before blending into the face.

How Often Do You Need To Reapply?

To maintain protection, reapply every two hours, and also reapply after excessive sweating, towel drying or swimming.


What’s Special About The Bottle?

Just like the rest of the Sun Sensitive range, Lancaster’s sunscreen for kids comes in an eco-conscious bottle that’s made from at least 50% post-consumer recycled plastic, while the outer box is made from responsibly sourced paper. But that’s not the only cool thing about this sunscreen’s design. It also comes in an easy-to-use spray bottle that allows for quick and fuss-free application, which is especially perfect for wriggling, hard-to-tie down tots!



Vegan and cruelty-free. Dermatologically and paediatrician tested.
