Same for me! I "converted" several years ago; the first day I wore BE, I kept noticing that I could feel the breeze on my face - it was the weirdest thing! I just bought the sunscreen applicator. It looks like it will be excellent to pack in my park bag - freshen up my face and apply SPF at the same time. Has anyone tried this product yet?

I see many of you change up your BC pills to alter your period. My tubes are tied & I have no need for BC. Would a gyn give me BC just so I could avoid a vacation period?

Also, I LOVE the deodorant under the b00b tip. Can you use reg. kind, or does it have to be aerosol?

I don't know if you can get it in the US, but we have a drug here in the UK called Norethisterone which isn't a type of BC but it delays you period great!! I've used it for lots of vacations!!

Thanks! I just did a google search & got several different answers about whether or not it's available in US...go figure! I will check w/ my dr when I get a chance.

The Florida humidity/heat is miserable enough by itself, I can't imagine dealing with Aunt Flo too!!!

I am so glad to be of service I use aerosol deoderant under the girls- but I am sure any would work. Roll on is too "wet" for me personally.

As for the BC pills- I asked my Dr. and she would. I had my tubes tied after my twins, because once you start having them 2 at a time for me it was time to STOP that train LOL. Any ways- she said that she would but she was concerned about blood clots. I was a smoker at the time. She wanted me to stop every 2 hours and walk. So I said forget it I would take my chances.

When I travel I am often mommy/coach. So I have to be prepared for just about everything known to man. I love my shoe organizers and tackle boxes...

Ok, now a question for all of you ladies. I got BURNT bad this weekend. I have never burned in my life- I am on HRT now that I had my hysterectomy, but anyways - I had on SPF 30 and I have freakin BLISTERS on my back I am burnt so bad. So give me the magic remedies for that

You are too funny! Okay, so why blood clots? Was it the combo of BC with smoking?

Oh no! My family is all red-headed & very fair. We slather on so much sunscreen that we rarely get burnt. But, when we do--I sometimes use our aloe vera house plant. I LOVE the bottled aloe you can buy at Walmart or whereever in the sunscreen section. (It's usually bright blue or green.) It has lanacane or something like that in it. It cools your skin while the aloe heals it.

That's what I am using *sigh* I guess I will just have to wait it out- paying my stupid tax.

I believe it was because I was a smoker. That and I was just starting them like 2 weeks before my trip. I would suggest starting them atleast a couple of months in advance.

Geez! I bought a shoe organizer after reading the tips on this board and now I'm wondering if one is enough!

I like ocean potion - you can get it a walmart. or the aloe vera gel with lidocaine. Was you sunscreen from last year? after about a year it becomes ineffective. You need to buy new sunscree annually.

Actually it was from last year- you would think that being a nurse I would have thought of that LOL- I bought some new-But I think it was the combination being on blacktop and being in the water. We were at a car-wash for 6 hours. I did reapply. I am also the only one who got burnt. I found some aloe with lidocaine, and my mam suggested vinegar compresses. I am feeling much better. Thanks!

I have better luck with "skorts" - they look like a skirt, but have attached shorts underneath. I have a knit one that looks very cute, and it was very comfortable on my last WDW trip. Also, not as much to worry about when on rides, since you don't have a skirt blowing up!
The best thing I've found to wear for days of long walking around the parks are....

Drumroll please...

GOLF SKIRTS!

They have the inside shorts and are made of quick drying material perfect for Kali Rapids and Splash.

I get alot of mine from Golfsmith when they have them on sale... www.golfsmith.com
