I may have to try something other than the Neutrogena Dry-Touch (although I just finished buying two bottles). My eyes have been watering all day - and I don't think it's the smoke.

Any suggestions?

I tried a tiny sample packet of a product which worked well for me but it's about $30 for 4 oz.
It's MD Solar Sciences 50 Mineral Moisture Defence body (just read "body" on the packet but used only on my face). Anyone here use this product?
Going to try some others recommended here, like Lancome. Most products make my eyes burn.

Are you avoiding your eyes and eye lids when you apply the products?

It's the chemical sunscreens that make your eyes burn. I've switched to mineral sunscreens. No burning eyes, even when I apply it to my upper eyelids.

I’ve used neurogena tinted moisturizer with sunscreen for a few years now. Light coverage and it doesn’t melt off in the southern heat.

I had to give up the Neutrogena Dry Touch, when I applied it next to my skin. Just couldn't stand the eye watering and stinging. And I didn't put it near my eyes, or at least I didn't put it on my eyelids or anywhere near like that. DH says it melts and drips down from your forehead but it doesn't really get that hot up here so I don't know.

I'm sure I could use it for short periods but I just couldn't do it as an all-day thing. What are some examples of a mineral sunscreen I could try? Having seen what DH is going through with his sun damaged skin I'm really wanting to change my daily routine and use sunscreen all day long.

I'm pretty sure I mentioned these earlier:
Supergoop's mineral version
Eau Thermale L'Avene
I liked these two the best so far of the ones I have used and also have over 15 SPF.


Coola Mineral - this one isn't great for darker skin tones, it takes a lot of rubbing in, and it is super mattefying which is bad for me.

My local natural pharmacy has a ton of them, but I do not have time to test them all to see if they leave em ashy!
