@rosemarya Hi Rosemary. As I mentioned, I believe in a different thread, I too positively abhor the way sunscreen feels on my skin. As much as possible I just stay in the shade. We have been in the Caribbean a couple of times and both times I chose resorts where the accommodations were strung out along the beach, and there were palm trees. I only used sunscreen when I went in the water. I am fortunate because we have a very rustic cabin on a lake in Maine but we are on the west shore so from noon on the dock is in shade from all the tall pines. I never have to wear sunscreen up there.

I finally found Obagi for my face, which is very sensitive to chemicals. It is a physical, not chemical, sunscreen without that chalky look. Colored like makeup, it comes in warm and cool tones and Is used as you would make-up. Not gooey or oily at all. It is expensive, but lasts a long time. Plus I watch for sales. For my body, I prefer the powder aerosols. Again, not sticky. I try to stay out of the hot-sun hours, so don’t know how effective my choices would be in that situation.
