LaRoche-Posay Anthelios. Been using it for years. I use a lot of their products. Pricey, but very good. I will warn you, though, that the face formula can cause some eye irritation, so take care to keep it well away from your eyes.

Run far away from any sunscreen that contains Oxybenzone and most do.

Hawaii just banned all sunscreens with this chemical because it destroys reefs. This was signed into law.

It also has been linked to testicular and prostrate cancers in men.

We use Beauty Counter.

I have very pale and very dry skin that will burn within 10-15 minutes without sunblock.

I generally tend to avoid the sun and being out in it but when I have to I like the following sunscreens:

MD Solar Sciences Mineral Creme Broad Spectrum SPF 50 (works well and has moisturizers)

Neutrogena Hydroboost SPF 50

Neutrogena Sport SPF 70 (when I know I'm going to be doing a lot of sweating)

Okay so i use the neutrogena spf 70. But is it true the higher the spf, the more white spots you get when putting it on? Example when i put the spf 70 on, you see it doesn't absorb it that well and its like i got lot of white residue on it.


However if you use a lower one like a 15 or 30 or 45, would that mean less of those residue? But its also not as strong though? Has anyone her used spf 30, 45, 70, 80. 100 and can tell the difference? Does one leave more residue the higher it is? Because im looking to buy another bottle because im running out and i thought okay get the spf 70 again but now im actually thinking maybe get the 100? Or is that going to leave even more residue? The thing is i have a ton of red marks from acne and i dont want the sun to make it even more worst than it is.

Default Sunscreen use

I have been wearing a face cream with spf in it for a long time, I’m 41 and definitely wish I’d been more careful with the sun. I remember getting sunscreen put on me at the beach or the pool as a kid but that was about it. I wasn’t getting sunscreen put on me just for going out to play or soccer practice. I have a 3 yr old and 5 yr old and I guess I should be putting sunscreen on them every time they leave the house but I don’t.

I’ve heard people worry about sun exposure when they are in the car, in the house or in an office that has windows. I get it, I have had skin cancer, the sun is bad. But putting sunscreen on can suck. Putting it on two squirmy kids who don’t want it on sucks. When are scientists going to come up with the pill or vaccination that protects us from the suns harmful rays?

With how dangerous the sun can be it’s suprising that sunscreen or a hat or stay home in the dark are the only options.

Does anyone else share my sentiment on this? The sun is not going away. People need to live lives. Is thick gooey messy cream ever going to go away and make way for something better?

This might not be a beauty issue but spf is talked about here a lot.

I can't use sunscreen, so I just cover up and wear a hat instead.

I totally understand the discomfort of wearing sunscreen. I hate it personally because it feels like something is on my skin and if you are using zinc type to avoid chemicals, it is even harder to deal with because it's chalky and thick. One day I put some on and didn't have time to really blend it in (yes it takes a lot of time) and I rushed out of the house only to have people staring at me in a strange way, finally looked in the mirror and saw that I looked like a Halloween ghost. It is important to protect your skin from the sun's rays these days especially with the ozone layer damaged and looking like Swiss cheese. The ozone used to protect us but now it is full of holes and the sun is getting hotter and brighter, not my imagination. We do need to protect our skin, if you can wear a hat and carry an umbrella, also wear long sleeves, it may protect you but the party line still is to wear sunscreen every day even on cloudy days. I also do hope that they would come up with a pill or vaccination so we don't have to deal with sunscreens anymore - I rotate different kinds of sunscreens so I don't get exposed to any ingredients for too long. It's also a pain to remove it at night, too - you can't just splash water on your face, it has really irritated my skin all the trouble to remove the sunscreen. You have to use a cleanser but my skin is really sensitive so I just use Pond's cold cream, then I use a toner on my nose and chin, and apply Pond's dry skin cream on my entire face, that helps a lot, better than cleansers that seem to strip moisture away.

They do make "fun" spfs for kids, maybe make it a fun experience for them. They didn't have sunscreen when I was little and I remember having sunburns on my arms. I also wished I had used sunscreen more in my younger years. I worry about the sunburns I had when I was little, too and all the years of being in the sun and feeling the heat on my face and just pushing through, no sunscreen on my face, ah well, nothing I can do about the past now.

I use Biore's Watery Essence on my face and the back of my hands/forearms every day. It's out of Biore's Japanese line and you have to order it online, but it's the best facial sunscreen I've ever come across. Soaks right in with no cast and it feels like you're wearing nothing at all. On days where you might want a bit more makeup-like coverage, Australian Gold's tinted sunscreen is also great, but as someone who doesn't wear foundation daily I find it a little bit much for me personally. During the day, I touch up with Pixi Sunscreen Mist by spraying some in my hands and patting it on my skin. I keep a bottle in my desk at work.


Remember that just putting on sunscreen once in the morning is not enough! It's also not enough to rely on SPF in makeup or daily moisturizer.
