I ordered the Alba stuff I have from http://www.drugstore.com . That being said, I believe I saw some at my local Rite Aid the last time I was in there. They weren’t there when I first ordered those products (I tried them 1 or 2 years ago)… however I think local stores may have some of their lines. You can just check around and see if any of your local stores carry them. Sorry I couldn’t be of more assistance. I hope that helps.

I would either go with Neutrogena which goes on super light and doesn’t make you glow or try anything Clinique. Clinique is known for having great makeup with UV protection.

One of my dermatologists recommends her patients use the Neutrogena 15 everyday as the higher SPF can cause breakouts.
My new dermatologist recommends Blue Lizard.
I say if you find something you like, stock up! You should be reapplying to your entire body every 4 hours.
I used to live and work in the Bahamas and was in and out of water 12 hours a day with other researches and they swore by NO-AD, and I totally thought it was icky.
I guess I am just not willing to spend $30+ a week on suncreen, because you should be using an entire 8 oz tube of the stuff for a week.
I’ve also heard that suncreen is an ocean pollutant. So now I am torn. I’ve started to wear clothing with SPF when on dive boats and a hat.
Best of luck and please report back with a review of the Clinque suncreen.

Ok, I tried Clinique today and it smelled weird. I also tried about 8 other kinds of Sunscreen! I went to the Nordstrom makeup counter and sniffed Keils, PTB, Shisheido, and about 5 other kinds. All came back with the same "ick it smells" verdict.
Bobbi Brown has a "sea spray" sunscreen in 15 spf. I loved it! But alas, 15 spf is like, nothing in the Dominican REpublic. A wonderful option to consider when I go to the lake though.
I ended up testing, buying, and LOVING Lancome’s Absolue Soleil Premium product. It was $38 (eek!) but smelled good and completely (and i mean completely) disappeared into my skin. i put some on my neck 20 minutes ago and i’m all "what sunscreen?" so, definitely worth it for a once in a blue moon occassion. I just love it. It’s light and fresh but not overpoweringly stinky. http://www.lancome-usa.com/sunbody/sun-protection/absolue-soleil-premium-bx-spf30-body-cream.htm
Thanks for everybody’s input! I put my sniffer to use today.

I like Arbonne’s sunscreen:
I like their baby sunscreen too, but I’m not sure if it’s waterproof or not.
