My eyes are pretty sensitive as it is, but I did look it up. Interesting

Follow up.. I bought the Burts Bee's Peppermint foot lotion and a pumice stone. The peppermint lotion isn't greasy and I am not wearing socks to bed, I'll report back in 5 days about the condition of my feet.

I like the Neutrogena with Helioplex dry touch spf 75 or spf 100 spray.

What do you women recommend for sweating between the legs and panty line area? Everytime I am outside in the heat I sweat so much down there that I feel like I have pee'd in my pants. I have tried using powder but that doesn't seem to help.Any other suggestions? TIA

Can anyone recommend where I can find a good glasses strap to secure them? My eye doc sells the ones that are more like nice necklaces (my DD calls them grandma straps lol) and are not really meant to be durable.

The glasses are polarized and when I'm wearing them, I can't see my cell phone or digital camera screen, so I need to constantly take them on and off. Ugh, it's so frustrating, anyone else have this issue?

Thank you!
You can buy black cords that when attached have a small Mickey head on each arm of the glasses. I think I paid around $4

I second this! Any Neutrogena sunscrean with Helioplex works great. In fact it is recommended for anyone who takes meds and the med says to avoid sunlight. My DH uses it and it's great!

True! My doctor is the one who told me to use it, in the highest spf I can find. Around here Wal Mart, CVS, Walgreens, and Target all carry it in the spf 100.

I have dreams like you, no really! Just much less touchy-feely. They mainly happen somewhere warm and sunny....

Try some antiperspirant spray. I think they make some specifically for all over, but I would think any can of regular spray would do. Spray some between your legs (I would avoid the ******l area) and that might help. I also recommend skirts for this reason. Usually the airflow is a little better. That may not help if you don't wear skirts at Disney. They also make sweat wicking shorts you can get at sporting goods or golf stores you can try. HTH!

I have a skin condition called PMLE, basically I lose tolerance to uv over the winter and need to build it back up. If I get too much uv before I build it up I get a horrible prickly rash. Before I was diagnosed I had 2 vacations nearly destroyed by it. When helioplex came out my dr told me to use it and it has been a lifesaver! So far every vacation I have taken over the winter have been rash-free using it!

I just bought new wet skin version for when we start going to the pool. I also love the cooling mist for when it is really hot out.

By the way, last time I looked neutrogena had a $2 off sunscreen coupon on their website. Sometimes target also has a coupon on their website and youvian stack them.

Where did you buy this Mickey head cord? My sunglasses are a bit loose fitting when on top of my head and I was going to pick up a cord now. However, I'll totally wait for a Mickey one if I know where to find it.

Another vote for baby powder -- been using it for ages and ages and always works fine.....
