I have been using sunscreen over Dan's moisturizer for along time (i'm a big believer in using SPF every day, no matter what). Ive been using the one Dan recommends, olay for sensitive skin SPF 15. I still highly recommend using it, BUT, for some reason when I used it over Dan's moisturizer it always ended up getting in my eyes and stinging the hell out of them towards the middle of the day. I know it was Dan's moisturizer (plus extra jojoba) because I experimented with different combinations of sunscreen and of other moisturizers (cetaphil, cerave, etc). and my eyes only stung when I used most SPF lotions over Dans. I really like Dan's moisturizer, so I decided to find an SPF that wouldn't burn my eyes, instead of switching over to cetaphil. I finally found it! Its called "Burn Out" Zinc oxide Eco-Sensitive SPF 32. Im pretty sure it was all the chemical sunscreens that burnt my eyes, cause this one is 18.6% zinc oxide, and my eyes have been perfectly fine. However, even better than my eyes not stinging, the ingredients are AMAZING...ive never seen a sunscreen with better ingredients. There are no pore clogging ingredients at all. Its pretty sweet. I'll update this thread if I end up breaking out or decide its a bad SPF in the future, but right now I have high hopes. I got it at wholefoods.

Thank you. This looks like it could be a good sunscreen for the summer when we need a waterproof version. Keep us posted how you like it.

Still using it, and its been really great! I really like the high level of Zinc Oxide only. It makes my skin really matte, which is good because I use like 7 drops of Dan's jojoba oil with the moisturizer lol. Also, Zinc oxide topically is clinically proven to help with skin healing (not specifically with acne, but I'm sure it transfers over at least a bit). No eye burning either!
