My Cabana Boy
Sunscreen is an absolute must for summer fun in the sun, but what good is that bottle of sunscreen if you aren’t applying it correctly?

It’s so easy to use – just snap in any full-size can of sunscreen, push the nozzle on the handle of My Cabana Boy and it will evenly spray sunscreen across your body without missing areas on the back of your legs, shoulders or right in the middle of your back.
