Pros:

Cheap and gives good protection against the sun.

I have to start this post by apologising to all of our readers not living in the US or being on their way there for a sunny vacation. CVS is a chain of stores only found in the US and this sun lotion is from their own brand. I bought it because it was the cheapest sun lotion there was to find while on vacation in Miami. I simply refuse to pay 30 dollars for a bottle of sunscreen, which is a standard in my native Denmark and had no high hopes for this cheap alternative.

The package promises you water resistant protection for 80 minutes, and urges you to reapply the lotion every second hour. This lotion is very light, sinks in relatively fast and has a nice smell. It protects well against the sun (so well that I was lying in the beaming mid-day sun for 2 hours straight and got away with a very light tan using the SPF 30) and it is cheap. So I truly recommend it, and hope that all of our lovely readers will go to a nice and sunny place this summer!
