What is the BEST WATERPROOF sunscreen?

My kids spend a lot of time IN the water, but their faces and shoulders get way too much sun. I've tried a few different sunscreens that claim "waterproof", but it seems they need something that really stays on and protects for more than 15 minutes.

  • I know, and it still runs in their little eyes even though its says waterproof. I like to use the giant chapstick thing. Its sunscreen and it is very thick.
