I've tried all sorts of different kinds of sunscreens and have yet to find one that doesn't end up feeling gross on your skin. Anyone know of any that are not ridiculously expensive but are effective and goes on more like a lotion?

  • We really like Banana Boat Natural Reflect... I even use it on my face under my make up with no problems.

  • We like the spray on Coppertone. I always rub it in and then wash my hands... feels fine once it dries.

  • I just recently started using Banana Boat Sport Cool Zone. It feels like a lotion and absorbs very quickly with no greasy feeling afterwards.

  • The spray-on or stick kinds feel less greasy to me than the creams or lotions.

  • It might be too spendy for you but it's worth it Netrogena is my favorite. it's like 10 or 13 dollars for a decent size tube.
