    Can I please have your comments on various sun lotions that you may have used in the past.

    On our recent trip, we used Boots Soltan lotion spf50 and Avon's sun spray spf20.

    The Soltan dried white and actually stained a lot of our new white tops which we weren't too pleased about.
    The Avon spray dried with a sticky feel to it.

    I use Neutrogena's Ultra. It's dry, and absolutely not sticky (I cannot bear sticky) and has SPF factors up to 70. It's a little pricey, but you can pick it up in most pharmacys or Publix/groceries.

    I can second this recommendation. :yes:

    But do not get the spray. I found it to be very greasy...I was super slick! Ewww

    I've not found the spray to be greasy, but you make a good point Foreverducky. There are two forms. I use the lotion, for the most part.

    Piz Buin all the way for us. It doesn't sting those of us that have excema and doesn't sting the face. Doesn't stain clothes and smells gorgeous too. Buy it *off season* for bargains. otherwise it can be pricey.
    We have tried them all and this is the only brand that doesn't inflame the excema.
