Sunumbra Sport Natural Sunscreen


Summer has arrived in full force and there is no pun intended as the South Easter is blowing a gale down here in Cape Town. The problem with the wind is that you feel cold but the sun is just a harsh, so sun protection is most definitely necessary.

I have an incredibly sensitive skin so I have not yet found a sunscreen that I can put on my face without my skin reacting. This is obviously not ideal and means that I have to wear a cap when I’m in the sun, which when the wind blows, can be a bit of a pain.

While I was working on our Allergykids list of Summer Must Have products, I found Sunumbra which is a 100% natural mineral sunscreen supported with plant extracts. It sounded too good to be true but let me tell you, it is amazing. We were invited to an invitational day of Trail running and family picnic afterwards out in Paarl.  For those of you who haven’t been there, it feels like it is about 10 degrees hotter than anywhere else, so sunscreen is an absolute must. It was a perfect day for me to test out the sunscreen.

My kids are not big fans of sunscreen either especially the thicker ones as they feel “sticky” but it is not negotiable so I thought I’d try this one on them as well. It went down a treat. It soaks in quickly and leaves no white residue like most of the other sunscreens and I had absolutely no reaction at all.

At the end of a long super fun, sun filled day, there were no sunburns or reactions and my kids are more than happy for me to use it again. SUCCESS !!!
