I usually buy one of the spray ones.  I can get a 2 pack at BJ's for a pretty good price.  Normally it's banana boat or coppertone.

Nothing.  I'm not fond of baking chemicals into my skin.

Neutrogena oil-free stuff daily. (The kind that is safe for face.)

And Banana Boat if I'm going to the pool or beach.

Any recommendations for an alternative?

I don't wear sunscreen often, but when I do it's usually just whatever was inexpensive.

I do. I use whatever I can find cheapest. Banana boat baby is my favorite....the one that seems to do the job best.

Whatever is on sale.  I burn very easily.  Sadly so do my kiddos.

There are sunscreens with natural ingredients but they're expensive and I'm not sure how effective they are.

I use nature's protection, a tan.  I get it by tanning gradually at the beginning of the season.  I stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., sometimes even 4 p.m.  I eat foods that are rich in lycopene (tomatoes), vitamin D, omega-3's, healthy saturated fats, proanthocyanids (found in wine, red/purple grapes, blueberries), and astaxanthin (found in pink colored seafood/fish.)  This variety has been shown to help the skin ward off or fight UV damage.
