Hi, buy it at home. From what we saw it has been on the shelf a while & is more expensive, also there is little variety.

I always take my own SPF 30 from Australia. One thing which is more expensive in Bali is definately sun protection lotion and you will most certainly need it!

Have a fantastic trip!

Bring your suntan lotion from home.

Not so for mossie repellant. Autan is a local brand that is effective, cheap, and readily available.

You'll find if you look in the likes of Boots or Superdrug in the UK, you can usually pick up half price or BOGOF sun lotions. Or somewhere like Wilkinsons or even Poundland/world makes it much much cheaper to buy it in the UK. Quite expensive in Bali for a tiny bottle.

It's not just about being able to buy cheaper.

The quality of the local stuff is NOT good. It will not meet the standards for UV rays.

Buy at home definitely.
