I am always looking for the next big thing in sunscreen, and…
Because I treasure our Canadian summers so much, I tend to spend almost every day from May to September outside, if even for a little bit. And because I have very fair skin, sunscreen is a must. But why is it always so greasy??? Well Coppertone CLEARLYSheer Sunscreen is changing the game.
This lightweight non-greasy formula comes in a typical white lotion/cream, face lotion with a thinner consistency and a continuous spray. These have a bit of a light citrus scent, not like a typical sunscreen, they are all water resistant (up to 80 mins) and come in SPF 30 and 50.
I tested all three over the weekend at a pool party and… I didn’t burn! YAY! But more than that, I didn’t feel greasy when I got out of the pool. The Face lotion was really nice and light, great under makeup and didn’t make my eyes tear up. The sunscreen body lotion had a similar feel to other lotions but it dried down a lot quicker and didn’t leave a white cast.
The winner of the three for me was the continuous spray. The nozzle made application easy (it let off a light, even spray mist) and after it dried I couldn’t even tell I was wearing sunscreen.
I’d say all three of these are YES in my books. Between bike rides, pool parties and scuba diving, I go through a lot of sunscreen and Coppertone is usually what is in my bag because it’s reliable and consistent. This new sheer formula just makes me love this brand more!
