LisaP is right, I use Avon Skin So Soft SPF 30. I am blonde with loads of freckles and burn in about 3 minutes. I put on the Avon before we leave in the morning. We go snorkeling or swimming, usually on a catamaran. I try to stay in the shade on board the cat, but even so, the Avon is the only thing that I don't burn with. I've used Banana Boat, Ban de Soleil, and some other pricey things, but for me, Avon works the best. My detmatologist cringes when I tell him I'm going to the Caribbean as I have actinic keratosis constantly, but I do my best to still enjoy the sun and stay as safe as possible. Just pace yourself trying to tan, it can't be done in a week
