      Thanks for your comments! Sometimes when your at the beach you don't really want to spend 20 minutes in the shade while the sunscreen dries too right. Well there are lots of different types out there, so you can keep experimenting until you get the one that is right for you.

      This is good. I have sensitive skin and so I still get burnt even with sunscreen on, which is why it's al the more important for me to use the right kind when I'm in the sun.

      Also I, and I think a lot of others too, don't always remember to reapply it when at the beach for hours, you just get caught up with having so much fun that it ends up being the last thing on your mind!
