For a sunscreen designed for long periods of activity, Supergoop’s PLAY Everyday sunscreen is still somewhat lightweight. It absorbs quickly and, while slightly thicker than other formulas in Supergoop’s product line, isn’t too greasy. Note that this product contains a very faint rosemary scent; while not overpowering by any means, men who prefer unscented products may find it off-putting. The large pump bottle makes it a great product for families.
