Best sunscreen for heavy sweaters? (Read 1368 times)

    Anyone want to recommend their favorite sunscreen or give a heads up if you hate yours? I currently use a Coppertone Sport spray one and it seems to just work okay. I already learned that the Walgreens brand is worse. I'm already getting a Garmin tan line and it ain't pretty. And it leaves my skin sticky feeling. I'm not always able to shower right away so I end up feeling all gross until I'm able to shower.

    I don't half-ass anything

      I really like Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock - SPF 100, 

      doesn't seem to block the pores, but I haven't tanned or burned in  a long time


      Needs more cowbell!

        Unfortunately Coppertone seems to be about the best. Are you reapplying enough?

          I have to say this.  Forgive me.  If you are wearing a heavy sweater do you really need sunscreen?  

           

          Seriously, I would be interested in knowing  what is a good sunscreen that isn't greasy.  I would rather wear a sweater than thick greasy sunscreen.

            Kunland, you live in Tennessee and it has been hot.  What do you need a heavy sweater for?

             

            Dang.  Wannabe beat me.

              I should add that the Coppertone Sport spray IS sticky...and the more you reapply, the more layers of that gluey gunk you'll be scrubbing off in the shower.  I find the lotion to be much less yucky-feeling.

                  No, I was out sweating in the TN humidity.

                    I need to get my behind out the door and get to Costco for a case of Pop Tarts and some Coppertone lotion before this happens.

                     

                    mta- and some razors too!

                      I used this one on my face and neck during my last race and liked it.

                            I like the Neutrogena ultra sheer.  But any kind you use, I would recommend not putting any on your forehead, just wear a visor instead.   That will keep it from getting in your eyes.

                                Has anyone tried the Trader Joe's spray-on?  We bought a can, and haven't seen the sun since.  Must be good stuff.

                                Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.
