Do you have a preferred golf sunscreen?

monkeyboymonkeyboy Lefty Boomers Posts: 737 ✭✭✭✭✭

Something that does not run or sting when you sweat, lasts most/all day, not greasy, no need to reapply.
I typically use a higher quality 50+ spf on my face, then a 50+ sports sunscreen on arms and legs.
Hate having to reapply during the day as my hands stay greasy for some time.

    I've been using Bull Frog for years. I always put it on before I leave the house to let it set in, then I'm good to go for my round...

    Ditto on BullFrog. I like the alcohol based. seems to dry fast and not make me feel "creamy".. ugh, I hate sunscreen. I'm as pale as it gets so it's a must

    I use Banana Boat spray (usually SPF 30). I try to spray it on at home before we head to the course so it is good and dry by the time we get there. As hot as it is here, and as much as I sweat, if I spray it on while waiting to tee off, it never dries. I have a very dark complexion for a white guy, and I hate using sunblock, but my RN wife insists. If I had my way, I'd just use it on my tattoos. I hate the stuff.

    the neutrogena face+body roll on stick. checks all the boxes listed by OP. still have to reapply occasionally if it's a really hot, sweaty day, but it's a no mess, no fuss application that doesn't leave greasy hands. love it!

    Tried the Coppertone sport "dry" this year. Does what is says, but can be expensive.

    I don't have a favorite but as I live and play in 100+ degree summers I always use it and reapply it several times during a round. I typically buy whatever Kids sunscreen that is on sale. Something that is 50+ and doesn't burn my eyes.

    I use bullfrog as well. But I use the kind that has the built in insect repellent. If I need to reapply I do so at the turn and wash my hands. I hate slick hands when gripping the club. But most times I do not feel the need to re-apply.

    ThinkBaby or ThinkSport are my go to (pretty much the same but priced differently...)
    Currently using Obagi Sun Shield for the face, neck & ears and really liking it.

    I've been a fan of Blue Lizard sunscreen for a few years now. Need to apply before the round because of the creamy feeling it leaves on the hands, but it does really well on hot days when I'm sweating a lot.

    Started using Blue Lizard this year, getting more serious about sun protection. It is creamy as stated so need to wipe hands after applying. I agree it works well even when perspiring. I reapply at the turn.

    Neutagena baby 50 for the face. Zinc and titanium. Absolutely the best sunscreen for the face. ( Or any that has those two ingredients.) Since it's baby rated it will not sting. This came on a recommendation from a dermatologist.

  • jdc944jdc944 Members Posts: 65 ✭✭

    I buy the spray on equate 50 spf at Wal Mart. It is supposedly ranks very well on effectiveness and it is cheap and easy to apply. She said it has been tested by the experts on Good Morning America, Today, or some such show. So I am using sun screen and listening to her, so it earns me points.

    Neutrogena 55 or 70. Apply before leaving the house and again at the turn. Then wipe my hand off with an iced hand towel and good to go.

    Another vote for Blue Lizard. It can give you a "pasty" look if you apply it thickly and don't really work it in, but it works...

    Use spray or the cream from Banana Boat in the SPF50 Sports version, I find it last longer and doesn't disappear in sweat etc and doesn't Sing either. Got introduced to it years ago when I sailed, found you could apply before a race and it would last the 4+hours of the race . It certainly last a full round of golf

    I've become a big fan of Skin Sunscreen Golf- it's non-greasy in the tube, and you can apply it between holes and just wipe off your hands without messing up your grip.

  • proguyproguy Members Posts: 888 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Mineral based sunscreen are the best. Scent free is best for people with skin issues.

    Blue Lizard seems to work.
    It’s none of the things you listed as desired, but then, those sunscreens don’t really work all that’s runny and you want to put it on b4 your shirt. Let it dry a bit.

    Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Spray has done me well. I spray it on and don’t even have to rub it in so I don’t have to get it on my hands and then in turn on my grips.
