SUNSCREEN.

14 posts in this topic

Every one I've tried makes me look OILY. Like big time. They feel heavy and greasy and they break me out.

Ever came across one that didn't do any of those things for you? I'd love suggestions. It would be AMAZING if it was all natural, too. I only use physical sunscreens.

Gracias. <3

My dermatologist recommended Anthelios by Roche Posay. It is pretty expensive (around 40 bucks) for a small bottle, but it is liquid-like so it lasts a long time. It is the best sunscreen for acne- does not make me break out.

Hey, all of sunscreens that I used were never absorbed by my skin and always made me look oily. Fortunately, I found a truly great one about a year ago, I can only compliment, It did no damage to my skin, it looked natural and after a long term use only improved my skin!

Good luck, girl! I have read your topic on what cheating on your diet has done to your pretty face, don't give up! You will be all right, I can feel you are strong enough.

Thank you so much. :] Your kind words mean a lot.

I looked at the ingredients for that sunscreen, and it's not natural at all. It even contains parabens. :[

Oh well, I'll continue my search for the perfect sunscreen, I know it's out there!

Well, it is probably not the most natural one indeed. Anyway, my skin is liking it and it doesn't break me out.

Let us know if you find that perfect one!

The only one that does not make me break out or im allergic too (i come out in itchy red hives all over my face) is Clinque SPF 40 (comes in lower SPF's) Face Cream. Its non comodegenic, has both UVA and UVB protection is hypoallergenic and is also oil free. It does not make me oily and is a little drying to oily skin (in a good way). I love this cream, its amazing! Its also reasonably priced as you only need a small amount. Though im pretty sure its not natural, sorry.

Good luck ! :D

I really love Eucerin. I have pretty oily skin and it seems to normalize everything.

I only use natural products on my face and body. I use the Kimberly Sayer Ultralight Facial moisturizer SPF 25 which can make your skin look oily, but if you use just a bit of powder, it turns into a nice glow! For more sun protection I use the Mexitan Tropical Sands Sunscreen in SPF 50. It leaves your skin pretty white, but it's worth it! I got that one from Amazon.com They're both physical sunscreens :) Hope this helps at all!

I LOVE THIS STUFF. I ran out of my La Roche Posay and I had to go back to my Eucerin Everyday Protection recently, which ended up breaking me out.

I used the La Roche Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid. It comes out in a liquid form that you spread/pat onto your skin, and absorbs really well. It's really oily at first but after my skin absorbs it the greasiness is gone. I have to get another bottle! This is so worth it - it lasted me a year and costs around $30. I would highly recommend this sunscreen, other than La Roche Posay's other cream sunscreens (which, on the contrary, are far from greasy) or Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Cream (which also absorb well without a greasy residue). For me it's pricey, but it's really worth it.
