*Entries close 9am Weds 18 April*.

We've been asked by the folks at Garnier Ambre Solaire to find 3 MNers and their child(ren) who would be able and willing to go along to a special event in London on Wednesday 25 April from 10am – 5pm. The event is designed to showcase how much or how little sun lotion we apply and how much we should be applying.

Attendees will be asked to apply lotion as they would normally and then to be filmed in a special tent using a special camera which can highlight all the bits which have been missed and analyse where more lotion (or less) is needed.

The team at Ambre Solaire will then make a film about the day and this will be shown on Mumsnet, and other media channels as required - please note there will be a big promotion on the back of the film so please only apply if you are happy to star in this film and have your child(ren) filmed and be seen!

Ambre Solaire have asked that children be filmed wearing beachwear (shorts or swim suit, a T-shirt & sun-hat) and for at least one Mumsnetter to wear beach style clothing too (though you won't need to travel to the event in your cossie!) so please only apply if you are happy to do this or happy for your child(ren) to be filmed.

The team at Ambre Solaire will then make a film about the day and this will be shown on Mumsnet, and other media channels described in the full T&C's.

This is a chance to learn about sun protection for your family - and we would also want you to add your feedback to a thread on Mumsnet to share what you have learnt.

In return for attending each Mum will receive a gift box of Garnier products to the value of RRP£100 and lunch will be served. You will also receive up to £150 in travel expenses.

Apologies - we realise this is a normal school day and that this may mean older children will be unlikely to be able to attend. We are looking for a mix of folks to attend - maybe you could come with pre school-aged children. The event is only suitable for children who are aged 3+years.

This promises to be an amazing event with a few surprises during the session - as well as an opportunity to learn about skin protection in a unique way.
If you'd like to attend please add your details and complete the following questionnaire here.

No purchase necessary. Entries close 9am Wednesday 18 April 2012. Offer open to UK & ROI residents only, aged 18 and over. See full Terms & Conditions here.

Thanks frothing"... Then make that 5ml. We used to pump sunscreen into a teaspoon and show the kids that was the amount to use for each limb etc. to make the point. A tablespoonful and the poor nippers would be drowned in the stuff! smile

Not everything is a capitalist plot to get us to spend more money. Maybe you would like to read what Cancer Research UK say about vitamin D and sun protection?

Once you have got your dose of Vitamin D you should cover up and use sun lotion.

I have entered, I think it will be interesting.
