Nivea Sun Kids Sunscreen with SPF 50 PA ++ Review

Hello Ladies and Moms,

This is the latest sunscreen from “Nivea” which is specifically made for kids, but can easily be used by ladies. I bought this for my baby and have used it a couple of times and here is what I think about it.

Nivea Sun Kids Sunscreen with SPF 50 PA++ Review

Product Description:

Nivea Sun provides immediate protection against sunburn, long-term skin damage and helps reduce the risk of sun allergies. Very water resistant.

How To Use:

  • Do not expose young children to direct sunlight.
  • Apply before sun exposure enough to give a visible layer before rubbing in, let it dry then reapply to ensure adequate coverage and no missed areas.
  • Even when protected avoid intensive midday sun (11 am-3 pm).
  • Apply generously before sun exposure and reapply frequently especially after swimming and toweling.
  • For young children wear protective clothing (cap, t-shirt, shorts) and apply high SPF-sunscreen on sun-exposed areas (face, arms, legs).

My Experience with Nivea Sun Kids Sunscreen with SPF 50 PA ++:

I picked it up at the strong behest of the shopkeeper.  He was like, “this is one of the fastest moving products in my shop, my mom also uses it,” etc., and now I wonder why?!

The product is nice as in the packaging. It comes in a flip lid so that makes it easier to take out and it does not spill, but I do not like the fragrance. It smells a bit like a medicinal product or maybe like typical sunscreens. Second, since it is slightly cream or rather light yellow in color, it leaves a tint on the face when applied. So, people with my skin color may find it difficult to use as it puts on a layer of application on the face! But my daughter is kind of fair and it works fine on her.

About the protection, I have not noticed anything major about it on myself, but again, for my daughter, it works well. She goes out in the sun more than me and it has managed to keep her protected without causing any rashes, breakouts, etc.

It claims to have a very high SPF with both UVA and UVB protection. So, that is a plus. It is also moisturizing in nature, lightweight in texture, and gets absorbed easily and yes, it is water resistant! I have tested it.

Here is a swatch:

Here you can see a light tint on the skin.

Pros of Nivea Sun Kids Sunscreen with SPF 50 PA ++:

  • Does not contain any irritating or harmful chemicals.
  • Safe for children, so will be safe on your skin too.
  • Gives adequate protection.
  • Packaging is nice.
  • Contains high SPF with UVA and UVB protection.
  • Water resistant.
  • Moisturizing in nature.

Cons of Nivea Sun Kids Sunscreen with SPF 50 PA ++:

  • Smells like typical sunscreens though the smell fades away in a few minutes.
  • It leaves a layer on my skin.
  • This is the first sunscreen I got for my baby, so cannot compare it with other baby sunscreens, but for adults, there are many better products available that give great value for lesser price.

Will I Repurchase Nivea Sun Kids Sunscreen with SPF 50 PA ++?

Not for myself, but for my baby – yes, I may.

4/5 (as per a baby’s product).
