Great stuff!
By dave from Robbinsville, NJ on February 14, 2009
Bought this in Hawaii after getting too much sun. It seemed to work really well and I liked it so much, I tried to bring it on the plane. They confiscated it and now i'm trying to find some online back in New Jersey. it was [$] in Hawaii, but that was a smaller bottle.

I would recommend this item to a friend.
