Can someone please tell what the best sun cream is for a child aged 6?

We have always found the Aldi stuff to be very good.
Its also well rated for UV protection which is very important

Ironically, most supermarket own brand sun cream is the highest rated – and also the cheapest…
Agree with Huw on Aldi, but you can get some good ones from Sainsburys, ASDA and probably the rest of them too. I know for sure that ASDA’s own brand and Sainsburys is 5-star rated for UVA – ideally you’re looking for 5-star UVA and factor 50+ to provide the highest level of UVB protection. With both combined, that offers the maximum amount of protection from both harmful elements.
The indicator is on the back of the bottles – and goes to a maximum of 5 stars – interestingly, some of the main and more expensive brands – Nivea, Ambre Solaire etc. are only 3-4 star rated.
You can also get sensitive or moisturising versions depending on preference.

Anything that has the full 5 stars out of five on them. I found the roll on ones from Superdrug to be excellent. And really affordable, and the kids Enjoy putting it on themselves as it’s kinda fun to paint yourself green

Babyganics works pretty well for our kids. They both have pretty sensitive skin that gets irritated very easily.
