Very Large Collection of Sunscreen Type Things

Sunscreen.jpg

I started very, very tentatively packing for Singapore this evening---which is to say that I kind of assembled a bunch of stuff in random piles on my bedroom floor---and I kept putting sunscreen-type things in a corner together before I realized that oh my god, I have, like, fifteen different sunscreen-type things to take to Singapore. And also: wow! This means I am going on vacation! 

In the illustration above, we have three actual sunscreens---made by Coppertone, of course, which was chosen purely because it smells like summer---in various SPFs and different formulas (lotion! continuous spray! waterproof! for faces! won't make you break out like a pizza!)

Then we have some Clarins fake tan, which, if you ask me, is the best fake tan there is, and Jergens Natural Glow for Face, Jergens Natural Glow for Face plus SPF20 (which I use as a moisturizer most days) and Jergens Natural Glow for Body, because the body is an entirely different beast from the face and will not stand being messed with.

Aaaaaaaaand, this is as far as I have got with my packing. Or rather: "packing." Can you tell I found a new Target today?

Ha ha, that is a LOT of sunscreen. Like, you could put that picture on eBay and I bet someone would bid!!
Beware of the spray sunscreen... you still have to rub it in or you'll get burned in streaks. Learned that one the hard way!! Why the crap don't they make things that actually work the way they are featured in commercials??

I have something similar at my house. Only I tend to buy the 42-oz bottle that I never finish, only to misplace. I go and buy another 42-oz bottle and lather, rinse, repeat. The problem is, I've heard it looses it's SPF effectiveness after a year (don't know if that's true or not).

i have to say that my favorite sunscreen is the neutrogena dry touch.

i am totally using that same jergens you have there in the back. it's made my arms and feet very tan but sadly nothing else.

Gotta watch that Jergens Natural Glow!! I decided to start my summer fake tan last week and ended up with orange ankles as a result. They are certainly glowy. The really sad thing is, I do this every year.

Have fun travels!

Ironically, I just took a break from packing for a trip to Europe and while reading this, I've been reminded that I've completely forgotten to pack sunscreen!

Have a wonderful trip! You have my sympathies on the packing front.

I was traveling in Rome for a few days without sunscreen and I got badly burned, next time packing a few tubes just to be safe.
