I'm good about putting it on when I know I'm going to be in the sun for awhile.  I've also taken to wearing a baseball cap as well because my nose burns so easily.   How about you, are you good at remembering to wear it?  Have you switched to a face moisturizer that contains sunscreen?

I'm not so good about it. I do put it on all exposed skin before I go out on the bike because I know I'll end up sweaty and sticky anyway; and if I know I will be in the sun all day I wear an ultrasheer face sunscreen. But I usually don't put it on before I go out to water the garden etc. or wear it all day everyday. (at least for gardening I have a SPF50 long sleeve shirt that I wear sometimes) I have Rosacea and even the ultrasheer sunscreen will cause a flare up if I use it everyday...or maybe its what it takes to remove sunscreen causes the flare up. Because of the Rosacea I don't use a moisturizer with sunscreen either.

I wear sunscreen on my face every day - and on my other exxposed areas if I am going to be exposed for prolonged periods.

I think you should visit the website MenPro, it's very helpful!
