On the leaflet thingy I got through my door, it shows pictures of 3 types, factor 10 n 6 and another factor 10. Can't quite read the writing too well, but looks like one lot says Dry Oil, and the other says Protective oil.

Anyway, I got bothered (off me bum) and looked up the web site for ya all


you can find your nearest store from here. smile cheers.

Cooking oil is even cheaper and would offer as much protection.

HI there Horsey.... no, don't think so. they were the only one's advertised. I am a converted fan of Banana boat, after using it with the kids in Turkey last year. We used factor 50 , then down to 30. But dh likes it too, so looking to get lower factors for him.

The year before in Corfu, I used a mix of Piz buin and soltan. Mostly pb, and my skin rashed and pimpled dreadfully. Really like pin bites and stinging all over. It looked awful and felt awful. Absolutely nothing with banana boat, kept me very well covered and safe from the Turkish burning sun. 40 degs was a cool day, very hot.

Boots sell the kids stuff, as do costco etc. I bought my latest lot factor 50, buy 1 get 1 free from boots earlier this year

What on earth did I just rattle on about. <<shakes head in wonderment>>
