I have normal / combination skin. I have tried many different sunblock (Vichy, Shiseido, Lancome, Clinique, Anessa,Dior .... ) but I still haven't found my HG one Crying or Very sad The Lancome and Vichy ones are too oily and they open my pores! The shiseido one is strongly water resistance and it's hard to take off even though I use their complimentary cleansing oil!

I am looking for something light, but yet not too drying. I have found out that the following ones have good ratings:

1) Clarins - UV Plus SFP 40 (Anyone knows if I can find it in the Clarins Counter in Vancouver?)
2) Kiss My Face - Face Factor SPF 30
3) Dermalogica - Solar Defence Booster SPF 30

Has any one tried them before?
Any comments on them? Thanks!

Hi Appledaily,
I haven't tried any of the products you've mentioned, but I my dermatologist recommended La Roche Posay SPF 60. I am prone to breakouts and have sensitive skin, I found this product to be moisturizing and doesn't plug up more pores and lasts all day until I wash it off. If you want something lighter, I believe they also make an SPF 40. You can purchase the product line over the counter at some participating Shopper's Drug Marts. The price was about $30 and a 100ml tube lasts forever. Hope this helps.

Second to this, I always buy few tubes of La Roche Posay SPF60 whenever I go to Ireland as it is not yet available in the UK.
