2 adults and 1 child. The child will wear spf 30 malibu once daily spray all day with a uv sun suit. 2 adults will wear it on their backs the first day and P20 spf 15 spray the rest.

Where are you going and why only spf15?

Depends where you are going? You need more than one day with spf 30 on your back. I never come down from a 30 if abroad. I tan well.

Child should really be on a 50 not a 30.

Everyone should be on 50. Sorry to be a bore.

last year I used about half a bottle of sun lotion per person per week. Spf 50 for kids and myself, spf30 for some parts of dp (spf50) for his back/chest

We are just back from a week with two kids and used 2 X SPF50 Nivea spray bottles, 1 X Nivea tube for their faces and 1 X Nivea wet skin spray for top ups.

The adults used 1.5 X 250ml SPF 30 bottles. Adults tanned. Kids were quite pale and just look a bit "healthy" now

Not Nivea. Neutrogena. Sorry.

They recommend that even creams sold as once-a-day are reapplied, because they can and do rub off.

It sounds as if you are olive skinned or darker and not going anywhere particularly sunny. I'd allow a bottle per person, and then buy more as needed.

I've just bought a multipack from Boots - got 3 bottles of Soltan (factor 50, 30 and 15) and after sun which I reckon will do us for the week (2 adults 1 child here).

We used shitloads in turkey for 2 weeks. 6x200ml tins of nivea spray, 4x300ml trigger spray nivea, 4 or 5 x 200ml Aldi spray stuff. 2 adults and 2 kids in over 40 degree heat so we were in and out the pool a lot. It needs reapplying every 1-2 hours and I wouldn't trust all day stuff. We had mostly factor 50 but the last few bottles were factor 30.

Never trust once a day suncreams, they do rub off. Lengthy deliberate sunbathing is also not smart.
