I received this Coppertone sunscreen from BzzAgent to review. BzzAgent is a word-of-mouth program where you sign up, take surveys about your lifestyle (just quick questions), and every so often you will get chosen to participate in a campaign. When you receive the product, you “Bzz” about it through social media. I received this sunscreen from Coppertone to test out!
Since it is now summer, I was happy to get some sunscreen, especially since this is called “Clearly Sheer”. So many sunscreens are heavy and smell terrible. Because I mainly wear sunscreen when I’m out for a run, I definitely wanted something lightweight on the skin, because I sweat like a beast out there! 🙂 I also haven’t tried any spray lotions, so I wondered how that would work. I admit to thinking it would totally get clogged in the can, but that is not the case at all! The spray sunscreen works REALLY well- it has an SPF of 50 and it almost “mists” out of the can. It was so easy to spray on, especially on early race mornings when I’m dashing out the door.
I’ve gone on some long runs wearing this sunscreen, and even though I’m sweating, it doesn’t wear off from it. I’ve never returned sunburned from sweating off the sunscreen, so it does last on the skin.
Both sunscreens smell good too- not overly chemical or cloying. I think these would be great choices for those who are sensitive to scents.
Of the two varieties, I prefer the bottle of Clearly Sheer over the spray can sunscreen, just because I feel like I am getting more even coverage. There’s more “control” in the application, at least for me.
Overall, I’m very happy with this sunscreen and will continue to use it. I even packed one of the small bottles in my race bag! 🙂
