Yummy Lotion Sunscreen

My friend Catie recently posted on her blog, that in the summer she loves using Hawaiian Tropic Dark Tanning Oil in her bath...for that beachy summertime smell!

I am not a bath I thought I would give their lotion sunscreen a try. I bought this one at Target...and does it smelly YUMMY!!! I think because of the "sheer touch" is really light and feels like your putting on lotion instead of sunsreen. So now after I shower, I lather this goodness on and smell like I am in a tropical paradise.

Let me know if you decide to "go on a tropical getaway" :)
