Official City of Miami Beach products

First they bring you fireworks, and now they are bringing you… sunscreen? Affirmative, and just in time for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim too. The City of Miami Beach is celebrating its 100th Anniversary with their own line of sunscreens and a launch party that was attended by Emilio Estefan just to promote it. According to their website, it is the “Official and Exclusive Sun Care Product Line of Miami Beach” and made with what is to become the “signature” fragrance of Miami Beach.  A portion of the proceeds are dedicated to cleaning the city’s beaches. Well played, Mayor Philip Levine. Buy products here.
