Thanks for posting this link. I didn't know about this site and I have been checking out places to buy Sofina. Just concerned if it will remain stable with my MMU.

I'm thinking MMU will be fine as it seems to be mineral/silicone based. If anyone else wants to double check that for me the ingredients are here

It's OK Smile that one's in the Avene high protection range and that's deemed good for MMU use.

Would you consider the Sofina price from the website expensive? I don't know how much it should cost. Also, what's more expensive, Sofina or Sunkiller? I'm currently using Sunkiller, but I've heard so much rave about Sofina that I would love to try it out. I got my Sunkiller for about $6.

lynn, from what website were you able to order Sunkiller for $6? I'm in the US and haven't found a site for that price.

Marci,

I bought it from an import shop here in Thailand. The bottle is small though...only 27ml. I'm not sure if it's the same size in the US.

Sofina is more expensive than Sunkiller for sure. I would say the price at Bobodave is quite good considering it includes shipping. I have CPed for quite a few members here and I guess buying from Bobodave is cheaper though I don't know how much it would add up to in USD. Wink

Sunkiller is definitely cheaper. The sunkiller in singapore goes for about $15sing. thats about $10 usd before shipping.

i've helped CP before and would be happy to do so. Sunkiller is rather drying though. when i apply it on my body, my skin starts to feel dry and itchy.

Hmmm...I'd love to give Sofina a try. I have really dry skin, but so far I haven't had any problems using Sunkiller on my face. As for my body, I haven't found a sunscreen that doesn't make me break out with eczema yet Sad I think I'm gonna stick with Sunkiller for now as I go through my sunscreen so quickly that I'll end up spending so much money each month on sunscreen!

P.S. What is CP?

I thought CP stood for "custom purchase", where someone buys for you specifically product(s) you are wanting and sends it to you (like in the case where products might be available overseas but not in the US, or huge money savings for someone to buy it locally overseas and send it to you in the US).

I just ordered samples of the nuance and lucent from bobodave Very Happy Cant wait to try it! The samples are really cheap.

To those oilier skinned girls, have you gotten clogged pores from this?

lynn--i use both the sofina and the sunkiller. to me, the sofina and sunkiller clearwater are very similar. I would say save your money and keep using the sunkiller. I also have the sunkiller skintone milk (thanks to CK of course) and i actually like that a wee bit more than the sofina, and think the skintone milk is better for those with combo to dry skin.

carol--my skin has evolved from uber oily to almost normal now, and i have had no problems with clogged pores from the beginning. just make sure you use a proper cleanser to remove the sunscreen. I use a cleansing oil.

Kristen

thanks! please do share on the shipping cost when you get it.

it's sad that we have to pay for the samples though. i can get fancl samples for free (the ones they are selling) as the SAs are very generous here.

I just placed my order through bobodave's website for Sofina....I've been wanting to try it after reading all about EDS, so now is the perfect time! I also ordered a couple of other items, as I'm sooooo prone to hyperpigmentation. The shipping was free, but I did have to pay for using paypal. I'm wondering also how Sofina will do with my breakouts, which are becoming fewer (thanks to all the new products I've been introduced to on EDS!), but still occur here and there. My skin is supersensitive, so I'll post if I have problems with Sofina. Thanks for the info on the free international shipping! Razz
