As the seasons change and the sun makes a very welcome reappearance, it’s time to refresh our bathroom as well. You’ll find everything you need to get ready for summer at Mini U, whether you’re enjoying a staycation or an escape further afield.
Here comes the sun
The arrival of warmer days means digging out the sunscreen, for ourselves and the little ones. Sun cream typically lasts for about 2 to 3 hours before it should be reapplied and factors like sun intensity, sweating, swimming, and towel-drying can affect the longevity of sun protection.
The shelf life of sun cream varies depending on brand, formulation, and storage conditions. Most sunscreens have a shelf life of about 2 to 3 years, but check the packaging for an expiration date. If it shows signs of changes in texture, consistency, or smell, it’s probably time to let it go! Storing sun cream in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight can help maintain its efficacy and extend its shelf life.
Take Mini U away with you
Recent news suggests that some airports will be lifting restrictions on carrying liquids in your hand luggage this summer. If you want to play it safe, you can pop the Mini U Miniatures Travel Set into your carry-on, as each bottle is only 100ml and complies with current restrictions. Each Travel Kit includes a Tropical Berries Hair & Body Wash, Honey Cream Shampoo and Honey Cream Conditioner in a travel-friendly size, conveniently stored in a re-useable wash bag.
Prevent hair nightmares
A day of splashing in the pool can lead to lots of tangles. It can be tempting to ignore them, but a generous spritz of our Fresh Apple Detangling Spray will help to ease out any tricky knots at the end of the day. Combing through damp hair with a wide-toothed comb and our nourishing Honey Cream Conditioner can help to prevent damage and keep hair soft and shiny.
Bath bombs aren’t just for the bath!
Our kids have had a great time using their favourite Mini U bath products in their paddling pool. Our children’s bath bombs are designed for the bathtub but they will joyously fizz and bubble away in your paddling pool as well.
Keep hold of your empty bottles too – they can be reused as free water toys before they go in the recycling bin!
