What brand of sunscreen can you recommend?

I need something good for our hot texas sun.

I'm on my last bottle neutrogena (sp)

and i want to try something else.

Year-round for my face I use Paula's Choice Essential Non-Greasy Sunscreen SPF 15. For the rest of my body, I use either Ocean Potion or Rite Aid Brand, they both have Parsol 1789.

Paula's site is at www.cosmeticscop.com. You can also buy her products at a small discount (& free shipping if you buy 2 or more items) at www.getthatglow.com.

I highly suggest Aloe Gator. This stuff works almost too good. When my husband and I went to Hawaii for our honeymoon we bought some there. We spent hours snorkeling without reapplying this stuff and were amazed. When we got home a week later we were teased mercelessly about staying in our condo the whole trip because we came back just as white as when we had went.

pep, I discovered the gator sunblock on our recent trip to florida and I love it also; I bought a few extra tubes cause we don't have it in Canada.

I'm using Neutrogena's 45 SPF. A little goes a long way and it's not greasy. Most of these are so greasy I can't handle it. The Bare Minerals makeup I wear also is a sunscreen (titanium dioxide). Then I wear hats too - you can't be too protected, I say!

I use Blue Lizard for myself and my kids. It has both zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in it. You can get it on drugstore.com and some other websites. I heard a dermatologist recommending it on some program last summer.
