Bull frog. Jell for above shoulders. Spray for arms legs and feet. I had a thingy removed last year and was using some high dollar stuff from the dermatologist that did not work.

Can't beat a Columbia long sleeve PFG shirt, buff and sun gloves. Bullfrog on anything exposed.

I like Bull Frog as well...seems to stay on better...they dont make a high SPF but those creams seem to sweat off easier on me. I also use a hat with a sunshade on the neck and ears and a sun gaiter...I have had several skin cancers removed form my head and face...should have done a better job protecting in my younger years.

Yep I have learned that clothes are better sunscreen than sunscreen. I can't do the buff though, it drives me crazy!! I go with 50 spf sport spray stuff on the face and neck and reapply a couple times.


See you on the lake and have a great day!

Baby banana boat spf 50 lotion

It has zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. That stuff stays on.

Oddly enough the Walmart Equate Sport 50 spf is highly rated for protection. I use the spray for everything exposed except for the face. Might try bullfrog for that based on the recs here.

I've had several skin cancer scares so I wear convertible pants, a long sleeve Columbia shirt, a hat with a big brim, sun gloves, and a buff. I use Neutrogena Sport Face for my face and some Coppertone Ultra Guard for places like my forearms and neck where the clothing rides up or down and gives you a sneaky burn. I reapply the face stuff during the day.

I tried one type of Bullfrog a couple of years ago - I forget which one exactly - but it had some pretty strong citrus or menthol ingredient. If I used it on my face, the aroma would irritate my eyes.

Wide brim hat, long sleeve shirt and No-Ad 50 spf for face, ears and neck.


I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I don't have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I don't have a curfew, I have a drivers license,a PU truck and I have a bass boat.

I like the NO Ad 50 because it doesn't have the crazy smells most of them do. I also use Nutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 100+, But I always wear long sleeves and sun gloves and a Simms Buff, I put the sun screen on my nose and under my eyes where the buff exposes skin, I can't stand it over my nose. Spray my feet and backs of the legs with the Nutrogena, it can be bad on your face if gets in your eyes.

thanks for all yalls input guys, I learned my wife is not a very good spray painter lmao, it look like she took a can of white spray paint and painted my back and shoulders with it missing a BIG section, I look rediclous lol, and the spray on my forehead got in my eyes, from sweat I rekon. I usually wear a hat and never spray my forehead, lesson learned.

Nutrigena I think is the brand. It's like a deodorant stick.
