My homegirl, the fiery red-head, introduced me to Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen. She said it was da bomb, and she was so right.
There's no chemicals or fragrances, in this stuff, yet somehow it makes water bead on your skin, like Rain-X for people. When exposed to UVA/UVB rays, the bottle changes colors and screams obscenities at you. And most importantly, it's the first sunscreen I've used which doesn't irritate my already temperamental and blotchy rosacea face.
We use the Blue Lizard Australian Suncream Baby version on our entire family, and anyone else who happens to come over and need some protection. I am constantly compelled to force it upon everyone I know. And being that it's from Australia, I was looking forward to getting all the Blue Lizard I could handle when we moved here.
Imagine the shock and disappointment when I found out that no one in Australia has even heard of Blue Lizard Australian Suncream. Apparently, Blue Lizard is from freaking Tennessee, as in the, "The Stage is Set for You" state. Huh? Should someone be offended that they didn't name it "Blue Lizard Tennessee Suncream"?
On a separate note, which actually is just more of the same-- I have arthritis in my 36-year old foot, which eventually I will need to have taken under the knife. In the meantime, my arsenal of pain relief includes Salonpas (they're from Costco, so you know they have to be good), and a pain relief cream called Australian Dream Arthritis Cream, which of course, is made in Kentucky.
Looks like Australians should be proud that companies want their products to seem Australian. I bet my cousin would like these products, she's American, but wants to be Australian-- we balance each other.
