For body, I need a spray. I generally purchase from Banana Boat Kids (which you can find at drugstores or drugstore.com) because of the high SPF and the fact that it’s water resistant (though I still apply again after an hour or so of constant swimming). I also use this myself because it’s so fast and coats easily. It’s everything I need and completely functional with my lifestyle.
For face, I tend towards sunscreen from a stick. I personally use Murad Sun Balm and for my kids I go with Coppertone Water Babies Sunscreen Stick so that it doesn’t run in their eyes but still protects.
Now, let’s get vain for a second. Everyone has cellulite somewhere. If someone tells you they don’t, they are lying. A bit of glimmer can deflect those not-so-cute dimples and for that I go for Kate Somerville Body Glow Sunscreen (Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus). It’s way too expensive to use constantly for all over body, so I keep it on the parts of me that need the most assistance (read: butt, thighs, upper arms).
