The Cotz tinted facial sunscreen works well for me, spf 50. Their sensitive one is also good, spf 40 and not tinted. I use either of these under makeup. They also, last time I looked, have a low amount of bad stuff in them according to the Environmental Working Group.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch sunscreen meets all of those requirements. I usually buy the SPF 30 but I like the SPF 45 also.

Thanks Atlantis, I looked on Amazon.com but I only found SPF 85 in the Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch. Are there lower SPF versions (which probably don't have as much white stuff in them)? Maybe I should look somewhere else?

Another question - stupid maybe but I've just started thinking about wearing some sunscreen every day. Which would you put on first, out of the shower? Moisturizer or sunscreen?

I buy it at Target, Walmart, or Ulta. I've seen it at CVS and Walgreens too.

Here are the lower SPF versions on amazon:

SPF 30 https://www.amazon.com/Neutrogena-Dr...nscreen+spf+30

SPF 45 https://www.amazon.com/Neutrogena-Dr...nscreen+spf+45

See how you can buy just 1 SPF 30, but the SPF 45 comes in packs of 2? That's how they're sold in every brick-and-mortar store also.

Edit: I see that on amazon if you want just 1 it has to be SPF 55, and you have to buy 2 of the SPF 30.

My skin is oily, so sunscreen is enough of a moisturizer for me, but according to https://www.paulaschoice.com/expert-...-products.html you would apply sunscreen last.

More info about whether to apply sunscreen or moisturizer first: https://thebeautybrains.com/bbforum/...oisturizer-etc.

I don't know that it's been mentioned yet, but what kind of skin do you have. Oily? Dry? Sensitive? Do you have issues with redness? Wrinkles? Hyperpigmentation? You can find sunscreen that works with all kinds of issues.

EltaMD is wonderful. They have a specific facial line and you can get it in tinted and non tinted.

At 7,000 feet in NM, definitely want sunscreen. Thought 30+ SPF was best until my dermatologist said it's more important that the sunscreen contain Titanium Dioxide or Zinc Oxide but do I want metals absorbed into my skin?
