I have finally found a sunscreen (Vertra) that does not irritate my face or drip in my eyes when I sweat. It is made for surfing so, it is waterproof and does not wear off easily. I used it while paddle boarding today and I am going to head to the surf shop to stock up...it is awesome.

Good to know. Now if I could find a nice sensitive sunscreen for the kids I'd be in business.

The only downside is that the sunscreen is clearly visible. This is good and bad...good because you can see if you missed a spot but bad because it looks a bit like you are wearing make-up.

Nice, I'll give it a shot. We've been using Sun Bum for the last couple years with excellent results and it's been my favorite so far.

I use Banana Boat Sport "cool zone" PF 50 lotion. Sticks to your skin and is waterproof. Did a lot of kayaking and the stuff really works. However, if it gets into your eyes rinse with cold water.

The best sunscreen I've found is Image. It absorbs quickly and feels like a regular lotion without the suncreen feel and smell I hate. It's the only suncreen I'll wear on my face.

I've been searching for a good sunscreen with no nasty chemicals, and tried a lot over the past 10 years (EWG's web site is a good place to start for this). This summer, I stumbled upon Block Island Organics SPF 30 and plan to keep using it. It's expensive (a little less than the Image products, from what I can see) but good.
