Ive been covering for 35 years, Started with Inoxa, then Estae Lauder, clinique and now I use microskin. The microskin is the first cover I have been able to use without fear of it rubbing off. It also isnt affected greatly by sweat. I live in (North Queensland) I can swim , sauna , spa and do pretty much anything and it stays put all day.
It takes a few extra minutes to apply but I am slowed as I need to get up really close to my eye. It is alcohol based and can cause some skin dryness b ut that is sorted by the right moisturiser. Getting it off requires a removal spray and a soapy wash. I can easily do this while the tv ads are on .
IMO get your young fella into the habit now and it will just become a normal part of his life.
