sunscreen experiment

It is the time of year to buy sunscreen, especially for redheads.  Of course, the two sunscreens I determined in 2015 that do not destroy our clothing are no longer easily available.  So I had to start again.  I bought the below sunscreen, hoping it would be OK. I blobbed some on my shirt, inside the O, as above.

And it is a winner.  After washing and drying, I cannot tell any change inside the O.  It is white when you put it on your skin, but if you rub it in, and then it is fine.  It is not too oily and so far does not sting my eyes.  So this will be the sunscreen for the summer.

    I’ve never tried that sunscreen. I use Neutrogena – the one this goes on dry. It’s not greasy. I’m a brunette with fair skin. Usually forget the sunscreen! I hate having to use it.

      Our problem is that we need sunscreen, and the iron in our water and most sunscreens permanently stain our clothes.

        When we lived in southern Saskatchewan 60 years ago, the water there had so much iron in it that if we were gone for a few days, the toilet bowl turned orange! When my parents came to visit, Mom said she was sure the water was so hard it rattled when it went down! I still smile at that thought!

        Ours does too.
