Hello, Gorgeous!: So, you're sunburned...

Sunburn happens to the best of us. Sometimes, if you're my hubby, it happens to you on the second day of your honeymoon.

When we got to Hawaii, we were told that the sun is REALLY INTENSE there, so we'd better put on that sunblock! I had gone tanning a few times to avoid looking pasty in my dress, so I had a base color, but Hubby had the delicate glow that comes from working in an office. Even with SPF 30, he was lookin' pretty crispy two hours later.

Sadly, the Walgreens in Honolulu was really far away and we didn't rent a car, so he had to go without his precious after-sun nectar:

We bought him another kind of aloe, but it just wasn't the same. No other after-sun lotion comes close to the generic Walgreens product with tea tree oil. It's a huge 16 oz. bottle for only $6.29, so nothing compares to the price, either.

And if you don't live near a Walgreens, don't fret! You can buy it online, though you should probably have it on hand before you get fried. So maybe buy it now.


  1. I really hope "Hubby" doesn't become his official blog nickname...

  2. You just wait and see, little sister!
