so far i'm so problematic with finding suncreens that wont break me out. i have sensitive oil acne prone skin. any suggestions?
Try using physical/ mineral sunscreen. The best I´ve tried is the HELIOCARE 360 MINERAL SPF 50
I used Biore Aqua Rich eatery essence SPF 50 is really good, light none greasy effective
I found that coola organic mineral sun silk creme has very good ratings and does not have very irritant/acne ingredients except for Cetearyl Alcohol (score of 2 for acne). I bought it on revolve because I couldn't find it in other stores. It's a bit pricey
MagiX Face Perfector by Avon. Its nongreasy, a few acne ingredients. It's been the only one that I have found that has been affordable. I can't afford to spend $30-40 dollars on a small tube of sunblock I will be using daily and finish in a month. It cost $8.99
I have been using the elta MD UV Clear Broad Spectrum line of sunscreen. I have tried the SPF 46 for acne prone skin types and have also tried the SPF 40 that is more moisturizing. These products have been made fragrance free, oil free, paraben free, sensitivity free and noncomedogenic. I have never had irritation or breakouts because of these sunscreens!
Hey! The Dermalogica solar defense booster seems to have 0 acne aggravating ingredients, but it is expensive. Haven’t tried it but might if I don’t find a cheaper similar product.
Have you tried LimeLife Perfect Sunscreen?
try COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream / Some By Mi UV Shield Daily Mild Sunscreen
These are sunscreens I have found so far with 0/0 acne/irritant ingredients, though I have not yet tried them myself:
(0/0) Cinere Matte Finish Sunscreen Cream for Oily Skin
(0/0) Aveeno POSITIVELY RADIANT SHEER DAILY MOISTURIZER SPF 30
(0/0) DRMTLGY Broad Sprectrum SPF 45
Best of luck in the sunshine!
MAKEP:REM UV Defense Me Blue Ray Sun Gel is good ! There is a cream too depends on what type of sunscreen you like
The skin and bare it , drmtlgy broad spectrum, DMK Soleil sunscreens seem fine. I’ll update if I find another. I search products with no comedogenic/irritating ingredients.
I have normal to dry skin. I am also acne prone and this works really well for me and it doesnt have a white cast.
Its from Krave Beauty and called The Beet Shield. There is one 3 and then the rest is all 1s and 2s. Hopefully this works out.
Supergoop Superscreen! Really nice daytime moisturizer with SPF 40! 0’s across the board :)
it may not have all zeros (zinc oxide could potentially irritate some people’s skin) elta MD UV clear 46 is generally well tolerated
I like Le Roche Posay Tolerian spf 30. It is rich and emollient but soothes my skin with out feeling greesy, clogging my pores or leaving a white cast. It is however a chemical sunscreen and so on days my skin can tolerate it I use cerevae which has an added mineral sunscreen but for some reason burns around the eyes.
Girls I did not know how important a face sunscreen was until I noticed I was breaking out because of it! I looked up several sunscreens at my local Walgreens and found that “Neutrogena sensitive skin mineral sunscreen broad spectrum spf 60+” has NO ingredients level 5 or above!!! I’m trying it out today. When I applied it made my face ghost white so I massaged it in very well and it went away. It contains 100% mineral actives and it’s water resistant up to 80 minutes, but of course reapply every 30min or so.
Elta MD UV Clear all the way. I have very sensitive, rosacea, acne prone skin and have tried many sunscreens. Elta MD is the only one that has never made me break out.
