      The brand bought is "Native Tan". I smelled the spf 15 in the store before I bought it. It smelled like coconut. I even rubbed it on my arm to test consistency. It seemed good. But I just now tested the SPF 25 (I bought two spf's) and the 25 smells like, well, just like sunscreen. It doesn't smell like coconut, but it doesn't totally stink.

          Okay, I'm going back on my comment. The SPF 25 STINKS! The SPF 15 smells good. I am going to return the 25's and look for more 15's.

            i am so sorry! thats stinks(literally-haha)!

            I got really cheap (around $6) for a big 16 oz. bottle of suncreed called No-Ad at Walmart. Its nothing fancy but you get a lot for your money and it just smells like regular sunscreen!

              The 99 Cent Store sells No-Ad sunblock for a dollar. The big sizes! I almost got them, but they are too big to carry to Cabo.

                holy cow I cant imagine a bigger size- i thought the ones i got were huge! I know this is a little more than 99 cents- but today at target the suntan lotions were cheaper- about $5 for Banana Boat- and then they also have the Target brand kinds that were about $4. just a thought-good luck!

                  If they were huge, then they are probably the same ones!

                    Hi Ladies,

                    I think I am going to ship a box of stuff to Mexico prior to the wedding. I have heard the risks about shipping to Mexico, so, I called DHL the other day to get specific instructions.

                    She told me that Mexico is tricky and have a lot of funky rules & regulations. Probably why some stuff never makes it. They have weird rules about shipping clothes or fabric, etc. She told me that when I fill out the commerical Invoice to list EVERY item with, quantities, a detailed description, cost and (**IMPORTANT**) make sure to write at the bottom.

                    "No Commerical Value"
                    For Custom Purposes Only"
                    Gifts for Wedding guests
                    Not For Resale

                    (and then put your contact information)

                    She also told me to have a contact name on the label (I am going to ship to Mariana at Dreams and send her an e-mail that it is coming) and she said to allow at least 5 days. I am going to allow 3 weeks, since I'm paranoid :)

                    I am going to use my company account number and reimburse them. That will give me a big discount.

                    I got an estimate from DHL and one big box weighing 10lbs with insurance was around $200 from Orange County to Cabo.
