Non-Greasy Sunscreen?

14 posts in this topic

I currently do not use a sunscreen but I would really like to, I am just really not sure which one to use! In the morning I do not use benzoyl peroxide on my face so it can get quite oily after several hours, Also I would like to be able to mix my sunscreen with my moisturizer so I can do both in one job.

So can anybody recommend a non greasy SPF only sunscreen? I don't want any which has a moisturizer in it as well.

Thanks! :)

Sunscreen has to be in a base when it's packaged, which is basically lotion or moisturizer...so there is no such thing as a "no moisturizer" sunscreen.

The most elegant sunscreen formulations I've found are CeraVe AM and Elta.

Oh okay yeah I didn't think of that but yeah you are right haha, thanks for the recommendations!

I've heard clinique is really good but I was hoping to get a few more brands to consider.

AM: Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Foam Wash, Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion, Cetaphil DermaControl Oil-Absorbing Lotion (SPF30)
PM: Cetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Foam Wash, Tactuo (Epiduo), MUAC 10% Mandelic Acid Serum
Extras: Diane 35 (since July 2 2013), Borghese Fango Delicato Mud Mask (2x/week), 25% Mandelic Acid Peel (2x/week)

The best ones that are non-greasy contain zinc oxide or titanium dioxide as the main ingredient. They go on a little thicker and take more rubbing in, but they dry completely matte.

I'm from Australia too :)

I was using the Hamilton Everyday Face sunscreen. It's SPF 30 and matte. It is tinted though (but the tint doesn't show up on my skin at all even though I'm pale). You can get it in Priceline if you're interested. I really liked it when I used it. The only reason I stopped was because my skin was so dry on the regimen (so in my opinion it doesn't work well if you have very dry skin). Now I use the Neutrogena moisturiser with SPF 15... to me it's not ideal but it's better than no SPF...

And we can get Clinique skin care products here! Any Clinique counter should have them so just ask about it when you're next near one.

We don't have CeraVe though - which is annoying because a lot of people seem to love it judging by what I've read on the forums.

Let me know if you find a good sunscreen!!

I use cotz sensitive suncreen. It doesn't seem to give me a negative reaction as in cause more blemishes but I'm thinking of trying Burnout eco-sensitive since it's more natural and my skincare is natural ATM , the cOTZ one isn't oily , it applies and feel a little watery-oily but the finish is pretty matte

I love Andalou Naturals I have a matte untinted Beauty Balm cream with SPF 30 I love it totally not greasy. Every time I put it on it's like a healthy shield.
