In case the name “ Azsungoddess “ doesn’t already give you the impression that I like the sun, let me make it clear – I love it! I spend plenty of time every day either running, walking or both outdoors. Add in pool time, and it’s fair to say that sunscreen is a staple in my life.
I had never heard of Sawyer Products until recently. I have not been super picky with my my sunscreen – but in general I don’t like it when it’s too thick, greasy, or has an overpowering scent. I use SPF 30 pretty religiously, and I think I still get a nice tan with that.
The first time I tried it, I slathered it on myself and my son prior to hitting the pool. I was immediately impressed with the way it absorbed into my skin and didn’t sit on top. Turns out, there is an actual reason for this!
Instead of holding lotion in the top two layers of skin, Sawyer’s” Stay-Put” SPF 30 sunscreen uses a special technology to bond the sunray absorbing agents deeper into the skin, penetrating where other sunblocks simply can’t reach. This formula was engineered to spread the same volume of lotion over a larger cubic area of skin, requiring less lotion per area of skin and producing a more comfortable, breathable feel. Also, with new FDA regulations in place, this sunscreen also does not contain Avobenzone . Using this compound can make the product less effective in preventing sunburn and compromises its quality.
Sawyer comes in both SPF 30 and SPF 50. In several sizes, all the way up to a gallon pump!
The final test was going out for a longer run in the crazy hot Arizona sun. I was out there for over an hour in somewhat humid temps. Even with a ton of sweat, it didn’t come off until I took a shower. If you want something different, give this one a try!
