I only trust Zinc Oxide sunscreens for my skin and for the ocean. This one is sold at REI, goes on smooth, isn’t oily, and doesn’t turn my skin white:
Badger Sport Broad Spectrum SPF 35 has positive qualities, such as reef safe and not absorbed by the skin into the bloodstream like some large non-mineral name brands. However, it uses non-nanoparticle zinc oxide and can be visibly seen when applied. I apply it every 1-2 hours when running in day time. Badger also has a facial stick and lip balm as well.
Consumer reports just did a big story on sunscreens, it is worth a read. Trader Joe's spf 50 was rated the best spray while while coppertone ultra guard spf 70 was one of the better lotions and inexpensive, relatively speaking.
Another for Sun Bum!
I love the face sticks too! Less mess and cleaner for the face. I have both the regular and the zinc stick and I love them both! The zinc needs a little rubbing in of course 🙂
