Default Sunblock, what works for you?

We are heading to Hawaii and I love to swim and snorkle but my husband gets sunburn very easily. I've tried several different brands of sunblock but haven't had much success in finding a good one. Any suggestions. Thanks

Find a waterproof SPF 30 (any major brand should do). Often these are marked as "sport" . Regardless of the directions, reapply every hour or so and immediately after coming out of the water.
Many fols will wear a tee shirt when snorkelling to help prevent burning on the back. (does not replace the sun screen however).

I like Bullfrog gel. Comes in 30 or 40 SPF, goes on easily, dries well with no greasiness. You can get a gel spray or a tube.

Thanks, I haven't tried that one, I'll give it a try.
