    I will definately try this new product and will report back. Aruba Aloe is a great product but their prices have gotten way too high. I remember when it was the cheapest sunscreen on the island, many years ago. Does anyone remember a line of sun products from Holland that had carrot juice in them? They no longer carry the line on the island, but it was the best sunscreen/tanning product I have ever used. It glided on like silk and gave you an amazing, glowing tan. I believe it also had walnut oil in it. Anyone know what I am talking about?

    YES i bought that product too.
    I havent seen carrot oil in any sun product in a long time.
    Must be because I am buying 15 and aerosol.
    Will have to do some googling!

    Ok Andrea...I googled and I googled, and the only reference I found to this product was at Beauty Naturals, but it said it was no longer available. I have sent an e;mail to their customer service department and will let you know when I hear something. It is called "Tropical Brown" and is all-natural.

    The sun in Aruba is VERY strong! I'm fair skinned as well and burn easily. Try to stay in the shade as much as possible. The sun is the strongest from 11 a.m. till 5 p.m. Wear a hat and sunglasses. I protect my shoulders as the sun can hit them strongly. Also, make sure not to miss a spot when applying sunscreen! Like edges of clothes, ears, top of feet etc. Be extra careful the first three days until you get a feeling for the heat and sun. Having an ugly sunburn can ruin some of your vacation time. Have fun!

    I've been using Australian Gold for years now, it works well as a preventive, everything from 4-50 spf, and there are a few of their tanning oils that actually do have carrot oil in the blend. Nice dark tan, I know what you mean Andrea.
    And thanks for all the feedback on the I Love Aruba stuff. I was initially wondering if it was like the Aruba Aloe line, but it would seem it's only sunscreen and such.
    Don't think we'll be buying any of that.
    Sorry cindy o, no reason to buy it, so I guess I'll never know.

    That store I LOVE ARUBA sells everything, it was just a matter of time before the sunscreen products were coming.
