One of the things I always forget to buy when travelling is sun cream, whereas often I have to pay an arm and a leg when I buy it abroad. I therefore thought I would have a look into the prices of sun cream in a number of different countries. The prices are based on estimates and averages and might vary from shop to shop, however I hope you find this useful.

€11.58
Paphos (Cyprus) – more expensive in the touristy areas
€13.20

€9.85
