August was a big month of running as I continue to train for the Chicago Marathon. I ran 272.77 miles, which is a lifetime high for me! I have some pretty strong runner tan lines from a summer of high mileage and something that I am not very great about is wearing sunscreen for running.
I have tried the spray-on sunscreens for ease of use but just do not like how sticky they make me feel. I have used traditional lotion sunscreens and find that many leave me with streaks of white that run off as the sweat comes.
I had a renewed dedication to sunscreen when someone told me to get a strange spot on my ear checked out. I hadn't given the area much thought but made an appointment with the dermatologist. Thankfully, the spot is benign and nothing to worry about but how many times had I used sunscreen on my ears? Probably never.
The opportunity to try Sawyer Stay Put SPF30 sunscreen came at a perfect time!
Sawyer sunscreen. It feels and applies like regular body lotion, which is a product I use daily. The lotion itself is white but disappears into skin without that strange white residue that many sunscreens I have tried leave.
The Sawyer Sunscreen also dries quickly. I usually apply it within 5-10 minutes of leaving my house to run and I don't feel sticky or greasy.
I have had some tough, long workouts this month and the sweat has been running off me. The Sawyer Sunscreen has lasted through a lot, including my personal best half marathon in Madison a few weeks ago!
I have been impressed with the product and have continually used it all month. I have thrown it in our bag for lake activities too. My kids and I went fishing with my dad last Friday and we were wearing Sawyer:
Another important factor for me are breakouts. Sawyer hasn't led to an increase in breakouts which is always a nice thing :)
You can get Sawyer Stay Put Sunscreen Lotion on Amazon.
More information about the Stay Put Sunscreen Lotion can be found on the Sawyer website.
