This is more a post about the wonders of sunscreen sticks than an endorsement of any particular sunscreen stick, although I do like this Neutrogena one (and this Thinkbaby one and this Cerave one) — but I never knew these things existed before I had kids. I bought a baby-friendly one to stick in my diaper bag and, I must say, I’m amazed at how often I’ve used the sunscreen stick and how grateful I’ve been to have it in my bag — at least once every summer I find myself surprised to be out with the family on such a sunny day and end up using it on my face, chest, ears, neck, hands, and any scars, and then attacking my husband and kids with it (mwah ha ha). (To be totally clear, I use sunscreen every day on my face and chest, but I only apply my usual sunscreen once a day — whereas if we’re at the beach or otherwise out and about we apply it a lot more places and a lot more frequently, like every 60-90 minutes.) Because sunscreen sticks are solids they don’t leak, and although I do replace them every few years for freshness and potency, they do hold up pretty well even when they’re on the older side. This one is $8 and eligible for free shipping through Prime. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Non-Greasy Sunscreen Stick for Face & Body, Broad Spectrum SPF 70
