Jojo Maman Bebe sun protection: Review

Please note, this is a collaborative post with Jojo Maman Bebe but all views, opinions and hat-loving toddlers are my own.

Since having children, I have been notably more aware of the effects of sun on the skin. I’ve never been a sunbather, but I also don’t bother too much with sun protection for myself. For the children though, it’s a totally different story.

Whilst I do appreciate that sun screen is very effective, where possible I prefer the girls to cover up in strong sunshine. This is sometimes easier said than done, especially for Lia who is a huge fan of hats, but often defaults to a beanie hat – even in summer – because it’s the only thing that will stay on her head.

I thought we might struggle to get Lia to wear a sunhat this year, because she does get fed up of chasing after them when they’ve fallen off. Luckily, Jojo Maman Bebe got in touch and asked us to review some of their sun protection clothing. I jumped at the chance, especially when I saw that their hats have a strap that you can tie under the chin to keep them on.

I think you’ll agree that the hats are really beautiful as well as being practical. Both girls have been wearing them constantly since they arrived. Surprisingly, they haven’t argued over them either, as they both chose the hats they liked online and then stuck with those choices when they arrived.

As well as their gorgeous hats, we chose a sun suit for Libby. I didn’t actually realise how practical this would be until it arrived. The sun suits are perfect for use in the swimming pool or in the sea – they act like a swimming costume, but they offer UV protection as well.

For Libby, the sun suit has become a bit of a go-to garment. It is easy to put on, totally unrestrictive to play in and quick to dry. I think you’ll agree, it looks great too – Libby is really proud of it. She has even worn it to nursery and to her drama class.

Now that we’ve got a sun suit for Libby, I’ve realised how useful they are for much more than just wearing to the beach. We will definitely be investing in one for Lia too, and we’ll have put them to the test in the sea soon, it’s a great excuse to head for the coast on a sunny day!

    Brilliant post and you know my feelings on wearing sun screen after my recent BCC skin cancer removal. The hats look really pretty and the fact they serve a practical, more important, purpose is fantastic.

    I actually invested in a hat today for spending my summer (and winter) days outside.

    Super cute sun suits too.

    Oh my goodness those hats are really lovely. Your girls look adorable in them, they are going on my list for my girls. I agree that the sun safe suits are great for lots of things, my girls love theirs. Libby looks very happy in hers x

    We buy the kids their swimming/sun suits from JoJo and they last so well! Jasmin is in all of M’s old ones. Love the little hats too x

    Oh they look so cute! The boys wear baseball caps…. which my eldest tilts to look cooler, even though it means the sun is still in his eyes. I feel old when I tut at him 😉
