any suncreen that contain Zinc oxide or titanium dioxide as their active ingredients. i wouldnt buy anything else if it doesnt have those ingredients. they are heavy and do leave a slight white cast but they provide the most protection :)

Elta Md makes awesome sunscreens. Uv physical is my favorite. It is oil-free and water resistant for oily skin.

I order mine on sunscreendeals.com

they have a variety of suncreens so you can find one compatible with your skin type :)

It sort of depends what spf you are looking for. If you want a lower spf there are more options for oily skin but I found it very hard to find a high spf sunscreen that wasn't oily. I was about to give up my search thinking no such thing existed as a high spf sunscreen that wasn't oily but then I found La Roche Posay fluid extreme spf 50+ and that's pretty good! I don't feel like I'm wearing sunscreen, my skin is no oilier with it than usual :)

I use Neutrogena's Ageless Intensives Tone Correcting Daily Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30. High spf but it's surprisingly super light. A little goes a long way.

I've tried several of the Neutrogena with spf and they are all very good. I'm trying to get away from the ingredients to avoid, but I've been unsuccessful in attempts to go organic. So for right now, I have to stick to this one. Gives a nice tone which I think has something to do with the vitamin C in it.

(I have oily/acne prone/combination/very sensitive skin)

I like the sunscreen sprays by Neutrogena or Banana Boat when my skin is oily. They can be drying because they're alcohol-based, but sometimes that's a good thing :)

Banana Boat Natural Reflect line works well for oily skin. It is thicker to touch, and you need to spend more time rubbing it out to a thin layer.
