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.

Shady Rays Signature Series

Hey guys! I’m back with another look at Shady Rays sunglasses! For those of you visiting my blog for the first time, Welcome!, you can read my previous reviews on Shady Rays Sunglasses HERE 1 and HERE 2.

Summer is here and that means plenty of time spent outdoors. When I head out on my runs (or when I know I’m going to be in the sun for most of the time, I’m always sure to grab one of my pairs of Shady Rays. You know I’m all about that Incognito look (still my favorite pair), but this time around I thought I would change it up.

Summertime Running is HERE, and that means hot and humid weather and SWEAT! It’s hard to keep cool, especially when it feels like you’re running through a bathtub, what’s a runner to do?

Enter Buff USA Coolnet UV Headbands

BUFF makes great products, I own two (2) of the large “neck gators” that I use throughout the winter to keep my face and neck guarded against the cold. And I also use those gators in the summer while on my motorcycle to keep bugs from entering my luscious beard. However, these gators are thick and protective against the cold but don’t breathe for summer-use.

The BUFF Coolnet UV Headwrap is the solution! The fabric is lightweight and breathes well in the hot summer heat. The Coolnet UV headwrap, when wet, provides an amazing cooling relief to the skin. I like to wear mine under my hat, and then slide it down onto my neck once I start to feel the heat.

The Coolnet UV headwrap also doubles up and provides protection from the suns harmful rays! So it’s a win-win when it comes to BUFF!

Overall Rating

Overall, I’m standing on a solid 5-star rating. I wish I could find some sort of flaw, but these are hands down a must-have for summer running!
