    Hi

    I have problems with suncream but have found that the ones that are less likely to cause a reaction are:

    Simple

    Cliniques city block spf 40 for face/neck and chest (very slight colour-beware of wearing a white top if you put it on your neck and chest)
    http://www.clinique.co.uk/product/16...-40/index.tmpl

    and Bare Minerals Powder SPF. This is slightly coloured and comes in 3 tones (is not meant to transfer but takes a bit of getting used to)

    Generally though I prefer to wear a hat, etc rather than rely on a suncream but that is just me

    ash, if you can't find anything else, get some baby sunscreen at Boots. I use this on hot hols (no particular brand, as long as it's for babies.)

    I love Vanicream for sensitive skin spf 60- it's only physical sun block ingredients- zinc oxide and titanium dioxide.
    You can get it online at a number of places or in the drugstores- not sure about your area but it's a great sunblock if you can get it.

    Have a great vacation!
