An all import date in every Family bloggers calendar will soon be upon us – it’s time for one of the biggest parenting blog conferences in the UK – Britmums Live 2016 is almost here!
2 years ago I hadn’t even started writing Everything Mummy – it was just a thought in the back of my head. I saw posts popping up on some of my favourite bloggers sites talking about heading off to London for a big blogging conference. It sounded incredible and it’s around then I took the plunge and started writing my own blog.
2 years later I am gearing myself up to head to Britmums Live for the second year, the past two years have been a little insane in terms of the blog and how it’s developed; as I sit her typing this I am on a press trip with my family and friends and about to announce one of my favourite cosmetics brands as my sponsor to head to the event.
With out further delay my sponsor is the fabulous Green People!
I have worked with the Green People a number of times over the past year, they are a brand I now absolutely love everything about. From their fabulous products for all the family to the story behind becoming you UK’s most loves organic skincare brand.
You can read some previous reviews on there Beauty Boost moisturiser and make up I have written up in the past just to get an idea of how much I love this brand. I have lots more projects coming up with them that I am really excited about.
For today to celebrate our partnership and with summer threatening to make an appearance any minute we are offering my readers a bundle of sun care products to protect all the family this year!

If you are heading off on your holiday soon or just prepping for the summer holidays this little bundle will sort you right out.
1/ Under-applying a sun lotion will greatly reduce its effectiveness
Charlotte Vøhtz, Founder of Green People says, “It’s really important with Children to apply a generous amount of sunscreen – 10-15ml depending on body size – every 2 hours they are in the sun. Research indicates that under-applying significantly reduces the SPF achieved and the higher the SPF rating the greater the reduction. Under-applying an SPF70 will only offer SPF8.4 and an SPF25 will decrease to SPF5.”
2/ An SPF50 sun lotion only offers 1% more UVB protection that an SPF30… Applied properly, SPF30 filters out 97% of UVB rays, while SPF50 filters out 98%. Even the highest SPF100 only offers 99% protection against UVB rays. It is far more important to apply sun lotions regularly and liberally. It is recognised that UVA rays are responsible for causing much of the long-term damage to the skin, including possible genetic damage to skin cells. The use of very high SPF sun products may exacerbate this problem by encouraging people to spend longer in the sun.
3/ Prickly heat can be caused by mainstream sun lotions which contain Silicones, Siloxanes, Trimethicones and Petrochemicals that act like cling film to prevent the skin from breathing. Green People Organic Children Sun Lotions are suitable for sensitive skin, those prone to skin allergies and who suffer from prickly heat as they are free from irritating chemicals and won’t block the pores.
