We love the fresh tropical scents of this SPF 30 lotion, plus the fact that it rubs in easily without feeling greasy and won’t run into your eyes. Don’t dig smelling like coconut or piña colada? It comes in an

For less mess:
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen SPF 100+

Our trail runners love the dry, no-fuss application of this sunscreen because it doesn’t hold dirt mid-run. And when you get really sweaty, it doesn’t sting your eyes. But don’t be misled by the high SPF: There’s little difference in protection between SPF 50 and SPF 100. So slather on a lot of lotion, as you would a lower SPF sunscreen, to ensure you stay covered.
For peace of mind:

Dermatologists will tell you that UV rays can cause damage even on cloudy days, but how many of us runners really heed the warning? This bottle may change that, however, as it goes from milky white to a shocking blue when exposed to UV rays. Inside, the sunscreen itself is a runny lotion that spreads onto skin effortlessly and dries quickly. It’s also reef-safe, using zinc oxide instead of harmful oxybenzone or octinoxate.
For value:
Coppertone Sport Clear SPF 30

Cheap and readily available, it’s hard to pass up a tube of Coppertone. This new version is a clear gel that feels cool when you apply it and rubs on easily—and won’t leave any white streaks when you slather it on in a hurry. Limit this one to your arms and torso, though, because we had a little get into our eyes on an exceptionally sweaty run, causing some stinging for the next hour or so.

For a dry feeling:
Coola Mineral Body Sunscreen SPF 50

A thick, mineral-based paste, this Coola takes a little effort to rub on, but has a dry, non-glossy finish. Plus, it stays put when you’re really sweating hard on a bright summer day. We like that it blocks the sun for our long runs, but also has plant-based ingredients we can pronounce—like red raspberry seed oil and prickly pear extract.
For no streaks:
Badger Clear Zinc Sunscreen Cream

This new zinc cream rubs in easier than other zinc formulas we’ve tried in the past and doesn’t leave a white haze on stubble and arm hair. Plus, the new formula bears a seal as Protect Land + Sea certified, meaning it’s been lab tested to show it doesn’t have chemicals that harm coral reefs, nor any of the harmful ingredients like oxybenzone that can be absorbed into your bloodstream.
For a fine spray:

There’s no shortage of ultralight sunscreens now, but a new one we like is from this Malibu, California company. Its mist is so fine you barely feel it on your skin and don’t need to rub it in—15 minutes later, when you head out the door, you’ll forget that you actually applied any. (They offer an SPF 50 version, which will leave a slight sheen because it has more of the chemicals that protect you from the sun.) It also doesn’t use any artificial fragrances, but is available in lightly scented versions of citrus or white sage.
