I’m good about protecting my eyes, and always make sure to wear a hat to protect my noggin, but sunscreen is always last on my mind. I blame my childhood. Do you remember those moments just before getting to the beach when Mom would lather you up in that smelly greasy lotion? You know, the kind that sand immediate stuck to and made you feel like a walking piece of 60-grit sandpaper? Yuck.

Sawyer Sunscreen boasts a non-greasy, non-chemical smelly easy wear, that’s sweat-proof and tough against the sun’s UV rays. That’s why when the chance presented itself to give Sawyer Stay Put Sunscreen a test I was eager to see the difference.

First Impression

Out of the tube, Sawyer looks like your normal sunscreen, nothing new here. However, the sunscreen doesn’t have a greasy feel in your finger tips, and goes on super smooth and easy.

I typically lather up my arms, exposed parts of my neck, and my legs just before heading out in the sun. I have found that the skin-feel is light and comfortable… in other words, I have no idea it’s there.

As you can see, when I run I sweat, a lot. Knowingly that Sawyer Sunscreen stays in place and doesn’t wash away is comforting when I’ve got miles to log and plenty of sunshine to do it under.

Good for more than just Running

My family and I like that Sawyer Sunscreen isn’t loaded with chemicals, goes on buttery smooth and doesn’t immediately wash off from sweat or swimming.

We use Sawyer Sunscreen for Running, Biking, Swimming, Mowing the Yard, Hiking, and just being out in the sun for long periods.

Overall Stance

It should seem like a no-brainer that I’m standing on a solid 5-star rating for Sawyer Stay Put Sunscreen. It does exactly what it says on the label, and you can’t get more honest than that!

Best of all, you can order your Sawyer Sunscreen on Amazon in a single handy squeeze bottle (shown above) or a massive jug if you really need to lather yourself up!

Do yourself a favor and give Sawyer a chance, but don’t take my word for it, see what other BibRave Pro’s have to say!
