Olay Complete SPF 15 - Sensitive skin is the only sunscreen that doesn't break me out.

I don't know what lotion you are talking about.

As for red marks, it's hard to get rid of them but AHAs and BHAs seem to help.

I've been told by my derm that the best sunscreens for coverage when dealing with red marks are the ones that are mineral based; either with zinc or titanium. I am using the megan gale sunscreen which is also a moisturiser but its pretty thick. I might try another brand soon. Clinique do one that feels light but it is very $$$$.
