Some of you may remember this post where I spoke about baby Violet and her sensitive skin. Well it’s been a few months since then and after a lot of trial and error I have to say Violet’s skin is doing a lot better. You can still see the main problem areas on the inside of her arms but all in all Violet’s skin is a lot healthier then it was back in September.

The last of few weeks since Violet started walking it feels like all she ever wants to do is escape. Luckily for me we have the perfect spot for her just outside the back door and her sisters love to play baby sitters so most of the time Violet spends her days walking up and down the path that runs along the back of our house only stopping for food or the occasional nappy change.

At the moment she is going through a phase where she refuses to wear a hat so right now sunscreen is really important but with her sensitive skin this is sometimes a little problematic.

She looks so damn cute in pair of bug eyed Louis Vuitton’s  but cute doesn’t cute it up here so we really had to find a sunscreen that was right for her skin.

A product we love to use in our family is the Hamilton Sunscreen range. My husband actually introduced me to the hamilton range a few years ago when he was in the navy. He use to spend weeks at a time on the ship out at sea and was vigilant in applying sunscreen and one of the things he used was hamilton everyday face sunscreen. Now that we have kids we seem to spread own a fair bit of the Hamilton range and we have recently discovered Hamilton Sensitive Skin Sunscreen, Hamilton Family Sunscreen and Hamilton Toddler Sunscreen.

I’m really loving the fact that Hamilton does a whole range of sunscreen for different age groups and skin types. We have been using the toddler sunscreen for Violet and Josceline, the family sunscreen for Effie and myself and the sensitive sunscreen on hubby’s post chemo skin.

Hamilton ticks three big boxes for me. It’s 30 + , has no fragrance {I always use to get headaches} and it is water resistant for four hours.  We spend a lot of time in the pool up here and making sure we have a sunscreen that is 30+ and last a decent amount of times is a huge factor for our family.

Our family has been through so much this year and ever time I hear the word cancer it makes my whole body shiver. Over 1800 people die from skin cancer related diseases every year and I can’t bear the thought of my children going through life not being properly educated about the dangers of the sun and how important it is to look after your skin.

It’s so simple and all it takes is a few minutes of your time before you leave the house. If you could spend a few minutes a day protecting your skin and save yourself the heartache of being effected by cancer then.. why wouldn’t you wear sunscreen?

Want to try it too. Well I have a three pack of Hamilton Sunscreen to give away to one lucky ready. Perhaps it could be yours. All you need to do is leave a comment below telling me What do you look for when your purchasing sunscreen and how important it is to your family?

This giveaway is open to Australian residents only and will be open until 5pm on Wednesday 14th December. The full terms and conditions can be found here.
