Some people are built to be outdoors. They are outdoorsy. They like to hike up big hills and cook over campfires and poop in the woods. I am not one of those people.
I am the opposite of outdoorsy. I am indoorsy. I get sunburned and mosquito bitten whenever I leave my house. In fact, it is kind of shocking that my ancestors lived outdoors just 10,000 years ago.
As a result of my evolutionary deficiencies, I very closely follow developments in products that promise to protect me from nature.
For instance, last year I purchased a box of Vitamin B1 patches designed to protect me from bug bites. These patches were no match for the combination of my mosquito-loving skin and Trinidad's wet season. They allegedly worked for several Amazon reviewers, but definitely not for me. I wore up to four patches at a time, but I still looked like I caught a weird tropical pox.
I'm going back to Trinidad in January and I'm ready to try again. Not with the patches. Those were a disaster. This time I will target my other enemy: the sun. These sunscreen wipes may prevent me from dying, making them an excellent gift.
If you buy me these sunscreen wipes, I will happily send you a picture of me at the end of my Trinidad trip to show you how well they worked. This could be gratifying, or it could be hilarious. Either way, you win.*
