    Sunscreen

    I love the fresh air and not the odor of sunscreens. Anyone using a truly odorless sunscreen? My nose sticks out so far its in the next county 5 minutes before the rest of me

    Nutrogena

    Neutrogena's sunscreen products are über $$, but far less smelly than less expensive brands that are in some cases, equally protective. Living in the high desert and swimming miles a day, I practically bathe in it before going out every day.

    I use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Body Mist spray-on sunscreen.

    I'm big on sunscreen since I've had skin cancer many times and I also am a hat person. I pack a Tilley in my Vario case and can usually be spotted wearing a Tilley hat. Baseball caps are useless which I why I go with a wide-brimmed hat which also makes for a great rain hat.

    I like the No-Ad brand SPF 50 from Walmart. It does not stink, is inexpensive, and does the job.

    My dermatologist recommended Neutrogena as well. I have always worn long sleeve everything and I still ended up getting a few spots frozen and cut off of me...
    The trick is to reapply whatever you use often. Now that I have an indoor job, my sun exposure is limited to riding my bicycles either road or MTB..

    It's the only product my derm Dr. wants me wearing after burning and cutting crap off my face/ears/neck for years now. Brim hat, no ball ball caps was another order from the Doc/. She personally uses the No-Ad as well.

    Always worked and played outdoors.
    Spent lot of time on, in, and underwater starting back the 60's. Used zinc oxide, then noskote, bullfrog & zinka.
    Now prefer NON paba (chemical based) products.
    Titanium dioxide/zinc oxide based sunscreens work best for me. Most are fragrance free.
    Neutrogena from the jawline up, because I hardly notice that it's on.
    Other products from the neck down.
    The baby stuff works well if working up a sweat. It can feel plastic like, and I have a bluish tint wearing it, but it stays put and like the Neutrogena, doesn't irritate the eyes much.
    I've got stuff up to SPF 110, and BIG sombreros.

    I've been using this also the last couple years after receiving a free can on RAGBRAI.
    On my face and neck I use Neutrogena Sport Face SPF 70.

    Thanks for the input, I did pitch the Dollar general stuff and found that Neutragena, You have to look closely for the small print that says fragrance free. So its as close to fresh air that you can get IMO.

    As an aside, if you don’t mind looking like a Power Ranger when you ride, you may not mind looking like a Ninja in the sun. https://www.hukgear.com/blogs/news/1...on-for-anglers
    These new sun protection hooded shirts are a hot item with the fishermen and those who may spend time in the sun.

    Another thing I have done is to have window tint applied all the way around in my car. It's the lightest shade available so it is legal in New York. Even the lightest shade blocks 99 percent of UV.
