As another pale skinned, gingery haired, easily burned person have found the spray Banana Boat sport factor 100 is great and have now used it in a variety of very hot sunny and humid places and had no problems.

Another vote for Ultrasun. I was a bit dubious at first as no matter what Ive used Ive always burned or reacted to the ingredients. It can be quite expensive but so worth it, have never burned whilst using it and no stains at all on clothing.

No idea what brand(s) we use but they will be SPF 50 and we take ours with us so we can put some on before we go in to the sun (rather than have to go shopping later).

One of the things I hate about going somewhere sunny is having to put on suncream - such a chore. Have to do it though.

We will get some of these when we are over there as they are really convenient. Not cheap though.

July 2017 I used "No Ad" no-ad/ spf50 and the spray type, I didn't burn at all, the type about not showering to avoid open pores etc is good advice.
I bought it in WalMart

We use UltraSun and would never go back now - We have the factor 30 Family one (which is a cream) and the factor 20 sports one (which is more like an oil/gel).

We have never burnt while using either, and the biggest bonus for us is that we have never needed to reapply throughout the day. Some mornings I was applying my suncream at 6am and it still lasted me all day.

It is expensive, but well worth it.

we use ultrasun 50+

yes it's a bit more pricey but we used this in '17 and it was brilliant! wasn't cakey (although i think i would have preferred if i'd gotten the face cream for my face as it felt quite heavy there) went on and didn't feel sticky at all. I'm super pale and burn at the slightest mention of sun, so for this to hold up all day in florida heat was excellent.

we made sure we all showered at the end of the night too to wash off sun cream as blocked pores can lead to prickly heat

Another ultrasun fan, best I've used.

We use the sports gel 30SPF, it's slightly thicker than the bottle of 20 we had previously. I prefer it to the cream.

Gorgeousshop had some good prices a few days ago, not sure if it's still on offer. They regularly send out money off codes too. Ordered from them a few times for various things.
