Sun protection while riding

Every sun-protecting lotion I tried comes off with sweat (living face and hands feeling oily). So I just wonder what everyone is using... (I have sensitive skin, so don't have too many choices).

Sorry, I can't help with sunscreen. I get the highest SPF I can.

Have you tried BullFrog sunscreen? It has done well for me even during sweating.

Thanks, folks!

Roadyy - didn't try one, will look into the option.

Dustbunny, in a ring the brim doesn't help all that much (especially with the neck). I try to use long sleeves and gloves (well, I use gloves always anyway), but face and neck are still unprotected in certain parts of arena. :)

I just picked up Neutrogena's Sport Face sunblock not too long ago, and like it so far. But then, we aren't sweating too much yet.
Last week I was ambushed by a swarm of mosquitos while lunging my colt. They only bit where I didn't have the sunscreen on, so if it repels insects, too that is a real plus in my book!

I wear long sleeves, pants and a cowboy hat everyday. My hands and face are tan and that's it. No oily feeling, it won't wash off, I put them on in the morning when I get up and that's it. :)

They are a bug and sunscreen company. I use it when out on the water fishing and swimming with very few reapplying times. We have been swarmed with skeeters in some of the back water and hear them buzzing, but never any landing. It doesn't leave the oily residue as it feels like it dries into the skin.

Another trick I learned is to keep bounce dryer sheets tucked into my shirts at the shoulder, shirt and pants pockets and under a hat if wearing one. I'm not sure what it is in them that deter them, but it has worked for me. Heard about it through some co-workers who fish in the swamps here in Fl and they swear by them. They always have a box of them on the dash of the truck. Lol

I've had good luck with Neutrogena, and I sweat a lot. (I inherited that lovely trait from my dad.)

I forgot this was only needing sunscreen when I posted about the skeeters. Lol sorry.

The Bullfrog products really do work and seem to last awhile while sweating.
