Is there such a product (spray on sunblock for face)? I have acne prone skin so I avoid touching my face at all time so I'm looking for a sunblock that I spray on my face after a long day at school/work -- to protect my skin while driving home.
Any recommendations?
Thanks!

I know cosmedix does one called reflect. It uses Titanium Dioxide and no zinc however. I used to use it but have opted for zinc oxide base products since it gives more broadspectrum protection. I'm not sure if you can get zinc ones as sprays since it can be quite thick.

I also used one by nivea (for the body) which was nice and didnt make me break out. However I have to admit I couldnt just spray and leave it. I still had to rub it into my skin, therefore touching my skin was unavoidable. Its the only way to get it all evenly spread over the face.

Some stuff Ive read have even said spray on sunscreens arn't good since some ingredients are not good to breathe in. They recommend to spray either in your hand, then rub on face, or concentrate on certain areas of your face then rub in. Perhaps the experts can chime in on that one.

Paula's Choice has a chemical one, but they always advise not to use a spray directly on the face as you can easily get it into the eyes.

Thank you for the wonderful replies. After reading what was posted, I guess I should not be looking into purchasing a spray on sunblock on my face. My question is, what do you lovely folks put on your face after a long days work (or school) to protect your skin from the sun during the car ride? Thanks!

Im a fan of invisible zinc ESP moisturiser, (ESP= Environmental skin protector).Its the only one I like from IZ, the others Im not a fan of. I've tried so many sunscreens and this comes a close HG. Its also a physical sunblock so you can easily apply it over makeup etc at the end of the day.

Hi
I use a powder sunscreen to top up before the drive or a couple of layers of a mineral powder makeup with SPF in it.

If you want to avoid touching your face, why not buy a regular sunblock and some cotton pads and just gently apply it on your face. Devita would be really suitable for this as it goes on sheer so you won't have to incessantly rub your face.

I wear makeup to school (or to anywhere to be honest; acne scars and acne) so I'm afraid putting on regular sunblock even with a cotton pad would smudge my makeup.
I might just sweep on a layer of mineral makeup right before I head out to the car.

As for the Devita sunblock, do you know what their spf is?
