Try using physical/ mineral sunscreen. The best I´ve tried is the HELIOCARE 360 MINERAL SPF 50

This has pore clogging ingredients I just ran it through my data base – Mariacamilarv 2019-11-02

Hi, I use this on acnegenic skin and although it has one acne causing ingredient this has worked really well for me. Avoid Heliocare for definite - this broke me out on my face and neck. I'm currently – ninadaymn 2020-07-05
biore has dimethicone! avoid – vdorocket 2021-02-24

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

it has dimethicone, a silicone. its rated 1 comedogenic. def not for acne prone skin – vdorocket 2021-02-24

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!

The SPF 46 is good the SPF 40 has Isopropyl Palmitate which is pore clogging – Mariacamilarv 2019-11-02

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.

This product has polysorbate-80. Despite passing the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR), there are concerns about this ingredient as it was found to cause cancer in animal studies. – calico15 2021-02-12

This product scored ZERO for comedogenic/irritants...according to this website. – ER-2021 2021-10-05
The correct name of the product is Superscreen Daily Moisturizer. Their Vitamin D spf also scored ZERO for irritants/comedogenics. – ER-2021 2021-10-05
@vdorocket are silicones not comedogenic or an irritant? If so then why was this product rated ZERO for comedogenic/irritants? – ER-2021 2021-10-05
correction - the vitamin D spf is not rated zero. my bad. but the moisturizer spf is zero! – ER-2021 2021-10-05

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.

girl it has 8 pore clogging ingredients ! – vdorocket 2021-02-24

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.

it has 4 pore clogging ingredients, even if rated 1 or 2, still really bad for acne prone skin – vdorocket 2021-02-24
