I use the stick sunscreen. It's very thick but has never made me break out. Either Kiss My Face, CeraVie, or CVS' store brand. It seems to work well both as sun and wind protection for me.
I use bag balm regularly for my hands. It definitely has a unique smell. You'll smell like you just came from a farm. Not sure I would want to put it in my face and smell it all day. Other people near you might comment on the smell as wellBag balm is good for hands, feet, lips. It has a unique smell. Dermatone was at the Snowbound show. I use aquaphor before Vaseline due to petroleum in the latter.
They were at the ski show. They look nice, and come in both balaclava and face mask (no hood) styles as well as 3 different weights. The lightest weight was part merino, part tencel (I think?). I was tempted, but they only come in black. @marzNC did buy one though, so at that point I decided to wait for her feedback first. I like that the mask style is made to lap over the helmet in the back if you want, preventing drips down the neck.
I've used Chap Stick for some of the really cold/windy days. Chap Stick (the brand) has a similar consistency to a sunscreen stick...and similar protective elements. Definitely thick, but I also have yet to break out from using it. I think due to the cold air, my skin actually needs that much moisture and protection.I use the stick sunscreen.

I got Small. It's being shipped so I haven't actually tried one on yet. First chance to test it out will be at Wolf Creek in December.
This sounds very interesting...I'm looking forward to checking yours out at Wolf Creek, so I can decide if I want one before I head to TSV.I got Small. It's being shipped so I haven't actually tried one on yet. First chance to test it out will be at Wolf Creek in December.
Helped a lot to handle one to feel the material and get an in-person demonstration and explanation at Snowbound of the concept. The fact that it can be put outside or inside the helmet is not obvious from the website pictures. There is a clip at the back.
I got the medium weight version of the facemask, as opposed to the balaclava version. The lightweight facemask has metal to shape around the nose (like a health mask). The medium and heavy weight versions have the magnet that gets glued to a pair of goggles. Comes with two magnets and can get a kit with more glue (think superglue) and two more magnets. Can't put it in the washer/drying because the magnet will stick and then pull out of the fabric, so needs to be hand washed.
wow-that looks like an awesome choice! I will give that a whirl, but will still layer a heavy cream underneath.I use this combodana mask. It's thin but the softshell is lightly fleece line enough to vent extra moisture so I don't fog up. But keeps warm&some moisture to keep skin from freezing. Also sun protection.
