What's In My Beach Bag? - Australian Gold Sunscreen

Finally...nice weather in Michigan! We just had a beautiful weekend here. Sunny and in the 80s.

I'm still sporting my very pale skin from the winter, and wanted to make sure I was fully covered with sun protection while out this weekend. I did a great job protecting myself...except for my back. Never forget to put sunscreen on your back! I remembered an hour too late, and I'm paying for it with a burn. But luckily, the rest of me was well protected with Australian Gold this weekend.
I used Australian Gold Sheer Coverage all over my arms and legs, in SPF 15. It rubbed in evenly and smelled just wonderful. There is something about the smell of Australian Gold that reminds me of vacation and pina coladas. Yum. Every spot I applied this remained sunburn free. I applied once in the morning, a second coat in the afternoon, and was out in the sun probably for a total of 4 hours.

This also comes in a cute sample size, perfect for tossing in your purse or beach bag. I like to keep it in my every day purse in case of an emergency (for example: spontaneous dinner reservations out on a patio).
I also used Australian Gold SPF Spray Gel with Bronzer (both this weekend and in Florida a few month sago). Great protection with SPF 30 and even coverage. It's not like a self tanner where you have to make sure you apply even. This didn't streak at all and applied it fairly quickly. This also smelled delicious...not like self tanner at all!

One of the best things about Australian Gold (besides the smell) is the price. You can find it at your local CVS and at high end salons.
