Hello everyone.

Summer is around the corner, with new SPF policies from the FDA this year, Sunscreen is getting more and more important for our daily skincare routine!

But do you hate the oily feeling your sunscreen gives you? It's important to find a good sunscreen for yourself, and one that you like, otherwise it takes HUGE dedication to apply sunscreen on every morning.


I have tried many sunscreens through out the years, but it's so hard to find one that I like. Either they are too oily on my skin, or they leave a white cast.

What is your favorite sunscreen, or would recommend to me?

I love La Roche Posay. It's very light, effective, and sinks right into your skin. Shiseido is also good.

hi,

The application of best sunscreen would fail when one wants to enjoy swimming in the sun or on a beach as water washes it off. The consequence is tanning of the skin and sun burn. Aloe Vera for skin in the form of Gel Or Creme is the best remedy to treat sun burn it cures sun burn and tan much faster and in a natural way than any other chemical product.

CeraVe has new sunscreen out...SPF 30 and 50 with ceramides. I have some and will try it for the first time tomorrow. I don't think it has avobenzone in it , which is a plus for me because my eyes swell up when I use it. I use the regular day lotion with SPF 30 during the winter/late fall/early spring months and I am hoping that this is as good as that.

I am a 23 year old male with sensitive/combo skin and I find all natural sunscreen to be right up my alley. I just started using Eminence's Vanilla Day Cream SPF 32 and I like it. It smells AMAZING. It's light, hydrating, and full of helpful naturals for facial skin. You can get a nicely priced travel size/sample from Buynaturalskincare.com, they sell genuine Eminence products. (I paid $25 for travel size). Don't be fooled by those who say Eminence products wont hold up either. People say they don't contain preservatives but I actually called Eminence up and confronted them with this notion.

Eminence guarantees their products to have a 12-15 month shelf life. Every product contains trace amounts of salicylic acid, soy proteins, and lecithin to preserve products. Just keep em out of the sun and your good.

Other natural sunscreens to look at are...

Pratima Neem SPF
Burnout SPF
Eminence Bright Skin SPF
Eminence Persimmon & Cantaloupe SPF
Eminence Tomato Day Cream
Devita Solar Protective Moisturizer
Snowberry SPF 15
Cosmedix Reflect
Cosmedix Serious Protection

Which La Roche Posay? I own two different ones and had samples of the others.

LRP Hydraphrase UV 30 is a moisturizer with sunscreen. I use the Canadian version. I also have the melt-in cream spf 60 that is heavier and better suited for dry skin. I use this on my neck.

I also have Shiseido cream spf 50. Must use oil based cleanser to remove.

All mine are Canadian. (US versions might be different.)

Hey girl, I just tried the sunscreen. I didn't like it, it leaves a REALLY white cast on my skin, let me know if you liked it, cuz I LOVE CeraVe.

I'm looking at solar to polar right now. anyone with acne prone skin tried this one? also looking at pratima'a neem SPF and the eminence vanilla SPF 32. I ruled out devita after thorough research bc I'm afraid it won't be enough protection. I don't want any sun getting through. I want to buy two different sun protection products: one for the beach and one for everyday. i am very oily, sensitive and acne prone. i hate the way all sunscreen feels, but i use tazorac and my skin is so thin that it will burn in 2 minutes on a cloudy day. i alao have hyperpigmentation issues. I can't use chemical blocks because they cause itching burning and redness to my face and eyes. right now I'm using elta md clear SPF 46. I also have Marie varonique, but I find it a bit heavier than the elta. last summer at the beach, neither MV or Elta broke me out, but my face did have a tan by the end of the week. maybe if I add the new colorescience sunforgettable powder on top it will do the trick. I've used jane iredale sun protection powder before and although it didn't break me out or cause irritation, so much powder is not a good look for a 36 year old with fine lines and early wrinkles like me. any thoughts? I know a lot of you are out there right now searching for your HG sun protection. please excuse typos as I'm on my iPhone...

My current favourite is the NCN sunscreen, "I'm Covered".

http://ncnskincare.com/sun-protection-c-12/icovered-day-cream-spf30-2-oz-p-206

I started using it this winter and like it. I think it will be beneficial to a variety of skin types. My skin is very dry, so I use a moisturizer underneath it. If you have oily skin, you could likely use it on its own.

I haven't put it to the soccer field test yet, but so far it seems to be working well !

Hi missyickes, I don't know if you noticed the Elta MD clear has 7.5% Octinoxate in it. That is considered a chemical sunscreen even though it has 9% zinc also. If you want an all physical ss you can use Elta UV physical broad spectrum SPF41. It has 9% zinc and 7% titanium dioxide. I use this one and like it a lot.


Here is a review I did on another thread last year about some of the sunscreens I have tried. Good luck with you search.

I do want to add that I recently order 4 more tubes of the Burnout CC and it seems to be tackier then usual. I even opened a different tube to see if it was just that one tube. Has anyone else recently ordered Burnout and noticed this?

I have become a bit of a sunscreen junkie the last couple years and Burnout CC is one of the ones a like a lot because it doesn't feel too heavy on my skin and I don't tan when I'm out in the sun for long periods of time.

Here are some of the other sunscreens I've tired and what I thought of them.

Best feel on skin
1.Zo Oclipse sunscreen & primer- but at $65 a ounce it is highway robbery.
2. Clarins day screen high protection- has only TD no Zinc but really nice feel on skin
3.Devita- I like the feel but can only use on days I won't be in the sun long. I still tan very easily with this on.
4.Pratima- I like the feel but since I don't wear makeup it seems like to get the correct dosage (amount) I have too much color/tint on my face but this might just be because I'm not used to wearing foundation. I don't really like the smell either but it has grow on me.
5.PCA skin weightless protection SPF 45- I love the feel of this but it does have 9% zinc & 7.5% octinoxate. So that will be a knockout for some people. Plus I did tan with this also so not good for all day sun.
6.Elta UV physical broad spectrum SPF 41. I really like this one. The feel on my skin is one of the best.


Ok choices

1. Nia 24- I like that it has niacin in it and it feels ok on my face. It does have a lot of silicones in it. This doesn't have a high content of zinc so you need to decide if that is something that you are ok with.
2.Blue lizard- ok but leaves my face shiny.
3.Goddess garden face or body SPF 30-I didn't see much difference between the two they are both some of my favorites for the body but not for the face. They do have a Baby SPF 30 with 20% zinc but the texture of it on the face is bad.

These were greasy and I couldn't even keep them for use on my body
1.Vanicream SPF60
2.Eco logical SPF30- wouldn't even come out of the bottle and if it did it was like pure oil. May have just been a bad bottle but don't want to try it again.
3.Badger

Keep in mind I have oily skin and the last thing I am looking for is a moisturizing SS.

Thanks CookieD! Awesome info. I forgot that Elta MD Clear is a chemical SS. It causes minimal redness on me, and because it doesn't make me break out, I consider that a small price to pay and keep using it for everyday. I like the skin-clearing ingredients in the MD Clear, but because of the redness, I don't want to buy another bottle. And it's not going to be my beach SS this year, either. I will def take another look at the Elta physical SPF 41.

I'm also going to look more at Burnout CC for my possible beach SS.

I, also, did not like Vanicream at all.

Have you tried any Epicuren products? The only one that looks promising to me is the Zinc Oxide Sunscreen SPF 20 which has 17% zinc oxide. It also has Niacin in it. If it were a higher SPF, I'd have already bought it, I think. Then again, the best sunscreen is the one you will actually wear, so...maybe I will look at it again for an everyday SS.

You are right Havana. I did mean Marie Veronique. I have never tired Pratima. Sorry about that.

Pratima is wonderful! It's untinted and does not leave a white cast. Sinks right in. Not heavy or greasy. Only downside is they charge quite a lot for shipping.

My other favorite is the Marie Veronique Face screen. This one is tinted. You can use it in place of foundation.

I've tried NIA 24 - it's ok. I just didn't like the heavy silcone feel. If you like the feel of primers on your skin you might like it.

Burnout...ugh, didn't like it. Left a white cast on my fair skin and felt heavy on.

Badger...very greasy and lumps of zinc in it.

Hi missyickes, I haven't tried any Epicuren products but the line itself gets pretty good reviews on EDS. I think that 17% zinc is a good amount. There are some higher but that's a lot more then most. I like Elta physical feel on my face a lot more then Burnout. It is not tacky feeling at all but it is a mix of zinc and t.o. so you have to be ok with that. I did try Suntegrity 5 in 1 sunscreen also. It is 20% zinc but will probably be too moisturizing if you have oily skin. It was for me. I liked the feel of it on my skin but my face would get that shiny look to it. I ordered a product called Solarex MD invizinc for the beach. It is a mix of both zinc and chemical sunscreens but it is certified waterproof for 8 hrs. That means I can swim and snorkel all day without having to reapply. I haven't tried it yet but will before I go an vacation later this year. Since I will only use it on vacation I am not worried about the chemical part because I won't be using it for long periods of time. If it doesn't work out I can still use Burnout but if you are going on vacation someplace humid this sunscreen gets really sticky. At least it did for me last year on vacation. So bad so that I need to rethink that last sentence.

Hi everyone, I'm new here, this is my first post. How did I not know about this Forum??? Smile

Well I found this post based on a search for a new mineral sunscreen. I've been a devoted Devita user for years, but just found out that they changed their zinc and people are having texture problems. I was ready to order a new tube when I stumbled upon that info. I'm really bummed because this was the perfect sunscreen for me. I still may buy it and see how it performs, but I don't have high hopes.

It's so hard for me to find a mineral sunscreen that doesn't clog my pores and break me out. I can't use anything with silicones or Shea butter. I had used Juice Beauty prior to Devita, but it never absorbed. It always left an oily residue on my skin and it was difficult to apply makeup over it.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I'm going to read through all of the above posts and see if I can find one with an ingredient list that works for my sensitive skin.

I use Purple Prarie sunscreen (20% zinc)and add a dash of liquid tint to it. I've tried Marie Veronique zinc sunscreen and like this better at a fraction of the cost. About the best price on a high % zinc sunscreen around. Never forget, unless your using the correct amount of sunscreen, which most do not, your not getting near the protection you think you are:

The dose used in FDA sunscreen testing is 2.2 mg/cm² of exposed skin.[49] Provided one assumes an "average" adult build of height 5 ft 4 in (163 cm) and weight 150 lb (68 kg) with a 32 in (82 cm) waist, that adult wearing a bathing suit covering the groin area should apply 29 g (approximately 1 oz) evenly to the uncovered body area. Considering only the face, this translates to about 1/4 to 1/3 of a teaspoon for the average adult face. Larger individuals should scale these quantities accordingly.

I love love liquid sunscreens. My two current favorites are kiehls spf 50 and lrp anthelios ultra light spf 60.

The best sunscreen applied on is clarins spf40 but since it doesn't seem to have good uva protection, I don't buy it.

I thought I was going to try the Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral Powder Sun Protection Brush SPF 50 as an added protection to a liquid SS, but I keep reading reviews that say the SPF 30 has a better feel/look....

Active Ingredients: Titanium 22.5%, Zinc 24.5%

Hi, Last summer I used the same one and higher SPF. I've found that in the summer, when feeling very hot, the LRP Hyraphrase SPF & others from the same brand, run into my eyes and burn them.
