Sunscreen That Doesn't Burn Eyes?

My sunscreen is oily and after a long day of fishing it mixes with skin oil, migrates around and eventually burns my eyes when it gets there. It doesn't rinse off easily without soap and freshwater when I get home.

Is there any brand of sunscreen that is soothing to the skin and doesn't burn eyes or smear glasses so much?

-----

SUNBURN TIP: my face got burnt to a crisp fishing in SD Bay for 10 hours last Tuesday. Places are blistered and bleeding now. The most soothing ointment I have found so far is the gel from a fresh piece of an Aloe Vera plant. It's comfortable going on, it softens burnt skin and it dries in a way that is comforting.

The only place I use sunscreen is my lower legs and tops of my feet. Not much chance of sunscreen migrating to my eyes from there. Everywhere else is covered up - long sleeve SPF shirt, wide brim hat, face buff usually just around my neck, and sometimes fingerless gloves.

It's called a BUFF. I don't use suntan lotion except once in a while on my legs, the rest is covered by long sleeve quick dry UV protection fishing shirt, Buff and a hat that covers forehead as well as the side and ears. Also use gloves

When I dive in mx, the protected areas restrict the type of chemicals you can have on you in the water.... my dive master turned me on to sun bum... this stuff is wonderful. I put it on my hands and face before every fishing trip, and clothe the rest of my skin.

Sun Bum Premium Sunscreen Face Stick, SPF 30, 0.45 oz. Stick, 1 Count, Broad Spectrum UVA/UVB Protection, Paraben Free, Gluten Free, Oil Free https://www.amazon.com/dp/B007MV4BQY..._9ZcjBb5322WAM

AloeGator. Been using it for over 30 years. Make sure you get the original aloe gel version and not the white cream version.

FEEDBACK: Headhunter works good. Cool, soothing, spf 50, doesn't sting the eyes. It's a relatively small portion for $15, so I'm using it on my face, and using up the regular sun block anywhere else.

Haven't tried Sun Bum yet. That's on my list next.

Banana Boat Kids is about 1/3 the price. It's on my list too.
