Favorite Sunscreen
Coopertone Sport - it isn't just the best smelling sunscreen.

Growing up on the beach, I was taught to always wear sunscreen.  No other sunscreen excites my anticipation for summer like Coopertone, and my favorite is Coopertone Sport.  And no, it's not because of the iconic logo below.
I love the smell of Coopertone, and it always worked..  I rarely was sunburn, and when I was it was I didn't reapply or wear it in the first place.  This Sport Coopertone is the spray kind, which is great for many reasons, the biggest for me, that I can put it on myself.  But, do not put this on when you are #hunting until after you have baited your crab lines, or make sure you have something to wash your hands with thoroughly if you are fishing.  The minute you touch your bait with sunscreen hands, is the minute you no longer catch anything.  The crabs and fish can tell the bait is tainted, and thus, your day ruined.
Sport Coopertone comes in almost every spf you'll need.  I start with 15 spf at the start of the season, and then graduate to 30 spf the tanner I get.  Depending on your skin type, you may need a higher spf.  If in question, choose the higher number.  No one needs to look like they are turning into leather.  
This sunscreen has many other fantastic attributes:
  • Like I said before, you can put it on all by yourself, but be diligent.  You do need to rub the spray in.  Otherwise you will burn.
  • Since I am active in the sun, this also protects you even after you sweat.  Always remember to re-apply!  You should re-apply every 2-3 hours depending on your activity and the heat of the day.  The more you sweat, the more often you should re-apply.
  • It smells like summer.  Is there anything better?  
Stock up.  If you are like me, you tend to go overboard coating Coopertone.  It's better to be safe than sorry.
Happy Hunting and Gathering!

  1. Um, Coopertone? How about Coppertone? I can understand one typo but not the misspelling through the entire article. Spell-check is your friend.
