SunBum SPF 15. It smells amazing and I never burn on it (and I am very fair-skinned)

Our go to sunscreens: Neutrogena and/or Blue Lizard

Makeup melts off my face at WDW, but if we go out in the evening, I wear BareMinerals or sometimes Clinique.

I just switched to Equate (Walmart) Baby Zinc. It's on the “recommended” list from the EPA Working Group. I used it on my face, neck, and chest when we were at WDW for 10 days in early September. I applied it every morning. No sunburn. Not even a tan. And this one seems to not cause much of a white caste like some mineral sunscreens that I’ve tried.

Yes, those ears often get cooked! I also recently gave up my boyish haircut and started buzz cutting my hair at home myself. And that means I need a completely solid hat covering my head when I'm in the sun.

Women don't look at me anymore. But they actually stopped looking at me when a toddler became my constant companion, so it's all good. (Actually, it's more like my toddler is the lead in the show, and I'm her sidekick. )

Neutrogena....works well and feels "dry" not like you are slathered in something sticky.

Anything zinc oxide based for me and my wide brimmed hat. As a RN in Orlando I see WAY too much melanoma--which puts me in the paranoid category.

I can get away with Olay daily moisturizer. 15 or 30%. And I carry it in a different small container to reapply. But I’m not there in the summer. I apply to unwilling teenage DS, mostly his ears and under eyes- sentative kids.

This is what I use on myself. Works better than anyone out there for me.

As for make up with the right primer, my Tarte clay foundation stays all day. I use a finishing powder (again tarte but the tinted powder) and then set with Urban Decay's setting spray. I can go all day with maybe a hint of powder brushed on after swimming.
