Spray-sunscreen

Ok, anybody else tried spray-on sunscreen? I tried it just for fun and I couldn't figure out how to get it on my face. I wound up (don't laugh) putting on my swim goggles and just spraying my face down.

How does everybody else do this?

I spray in on the palm of my hand and then wipe onto my face.

It says in the instructions on mine to spray onto my hands and wipe onto my face.
I don't like spray ones since they get caught on a layer on top of body hair and then you have to pat it down by hand anyway.
The best one I've used so far is the gel version. Goes on like liquid and evaporates very quickly.

I recently bought a CVS brand one. Yep spray on hands to face. I think it works well. I havent had any sunburn. But spray well on your arms and stuff, since there might be circle blotches in most places and not everywhere.

Everything is spray on these days. Wife buys spray on butter(margarine) and spray on salad dressing. I really don't see how this is making an improvment in my quality of life.

This thread reminded me to pick up more bug spray tonight. Maybe this time I'll try that bug repellant/sunscreen stuff.
