Sunscreen for the Face
Posted 06 July 2008 - 07:36 PM
So this year I spent 30 mins in store, trying to choose a good sunscreen that is safe for the face.
I decided on Coppertone Oil Free won't clog pores, sunscreen...it's safe for babies too!
Well I have used it 3 times, and I have broken out worse then I ever have in my life! My skin look terrible!
I usually have slightly dry, but clear even skin. But now, it's all red, blotchy, uneven toned, and covered in zits!!! Really bad, and its very very oily now!
GRRR!!!! I'm so mad!! Seriously!
It's going to take weeks to get my skin rebalanced, and until then I have no sunscreen to use!
What kind of sunblock do you ladies use on your face? Do you break out from it?

I have used Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion SPF 55 for 2 years and I really like it. It smells really good, protects me from the sun, looks smooth under my make up. I don't know if you tried it or not, but it doesn't break me out ( I have oily sensitive skin and used to have acne).

Have you determined what in sunscreen is breaking you out?
Maybe one of the new spray on ones would be less clogging?

|I use Aveeno positively radiant moisturizer with is spf 15uva/uvb as my every day moisturizer. They also have a spf 30 that I use on my face and neck in the summer.|
|Katana, since every sunscreen is causing you to break out, I think it might be because you are not washing it off properly. Since most sunscreens are water resistant, you must make sure to use a really good oil based cleanser.|
|Clean & Clear Oil-Free Morning Glow Moisturizer with SPF 15 works wonders for me.|
Thank you ladies for your replies!

Maybe finding a face moisturizer with spf? Makeup brands with spf products never broke me out... not like actual sunscreen.

Shiseido sunscreen is a physical sunblock (it's got titanium dioxide and zinc dioxide as active ingredients) so I think maybe I've been reacting to chemical sunscreens because they actually penetrate my skin to work... and I've checked, and most sunscreens out there are chemical sunscreens.

Sephora: Peter Thomas Roth Instant Mineral SPF 30: SPF 16 & Above
its kinda pricey, but you put it over your mu and it doesnt make it cakey or change to the color or anything. and most improtanly: it doesnt make you break out!

i currently use Vichy, a sunscreen named "capital soleil". i really like it, although it tends to make me look white.
