“There is an immense amount of satisfaction in feeling that you can take a daily plunge, of play golf, or enjoy any other outdoor sport, without dread of being burned to actual discomfort by the broiling sun and parching daily wind. Hinds Honey and Almond Cream seems to be more generally in use for this particular purpose than anything I know of.”

Happy Fourth of July!
