Funnily enough Consumer Reports put out the results of their sunscreen review that I got this week. Their top performing spray was actually Trader Joes brand, followed by Neutrogena Sun defense, then Hawaiian Tropic Island Sport. As for me, I'm finishing up a can of Up & UP (Target house brand) that's been well rated over the years.

Admittedly, I'm horrible about remembering to put on sunscreen. A couple years back, my wife started giving me the sniff test when I got home (she's brave...) to see if I was wearing sunscreen. But I typically use the Up & Up spray-on, SPF 30 or 50. I'm sure the coverage isn't as good as a thick, mineral-based lotion, but I like that I can just close my eyes and spray my whole face.

I grew up in Houston and one thing I remember being so excited about was discovering a Bullfrog sunscreen+bug spray combo. Given that mosquitoes are the National Bird of Texas and there's just a little bit of sun in the Bayou City, this was a godsend.

Update: tried solar sleeves for the first time today. I like the compression aspect and that my arms weren't sweaty, but I had on black sleeves and it was pretty warm. But they definitely blocked the sun! And apparently I forgot to put sunscreen on my hands... Oops.

I use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer 100+ lotion or spray, whichever the pharm has when I need to restock.  Prefer the spray because it keeps my hands dry, but both work great.  Also wear a bucket hat to keep my follicly challenged head, ears, and neck from being exposed.

I use the Walmart brand, Equate, I think it is, spray suncreen.  The 50 spf sport. Usually buy them in the big can, or the 2 pack of smaller cans, pretty cheap compared to the name brand stuff.  It works well and is easy to apply.  I spray everywhere I can and spray extra on the back of my right hand (not my golf glove wearing hand) to put in on my ears, forehead, etc.

I use a 30spf before I leave the house.  I then use a spray at the turn.  What ever brand I can find that is sweat resistant

NO-AD sport works great for me.  I find it modestly less greasy than some other brands, they almost make sunscreen sticks (looks like deodorant) if you don't want to get your hands greasy mid-round, although its not as easy to apply and you go through it faster.

I like the concept of solar sleeves but don't like the fit. I have tried the one size fits all and the sized ones. The sized ones work better given my arm proportions but still feel that they are too tight in the bicep/upper arm area, but too loose in the wrist/lower forearm area. I guess I have weird proportions, pretty big upper arms with tiny wrists.
