I use Cotz by Fallene. My dermatologist recommended it. It has titanium and Zinc in it. It is a true 60 spf. None of the other sunscreens can compare to this one except few others with metallic emulsions. Using long sleeved shirts and pants and a buff also helps.

Apparently, most sunscreens contain avobenzone or butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane, if you have high iron in your water (which I did from a bad water-heater) this chemical will react with the iron in the water and leave rust stains on your clothes where they have touched the sunscreen. So I put sunscreen on my neck it rubs off onto my shirt I wash the shirt and bam rust stain. Anyway, they say you can use a sunscreen with titanium oxide or zinc oxide instead of avobenzone and it won't happen.
Similar issue happens on the boat when rinsing with some well water.

Not sunscreen but I have to mention how much I like Jungle Juice. It's 98+% DEET and works like a charm. REI carries it. Ain't no bugs on me.
