Hi all,

I have got some SunSense low irritant cream which is supposedly free of chemical absorbers. It does have Microfine titanium dioxide 8.5% and Diazolidinylurea and hydroxybenzoates. For some reason I don't trust it won't irritate my skin after reading the many threads of the hit and miss nature of sunscreen but so far it didnt do anything today.

So after the 4 hours when your sunscreen is no longer working properly and your not going outside again do you wash your face to get rid of the residue?

It won't hurt to rinse your skin to get the residue off. I wouldn't give your skin a harsh washing, just a gentle rinsing with warm water, maybe a gentle cleanser, to get off the majority of the chemicals.

You have to be sure to get ALL of the sunscreen removed as not cleansing properly can lead to breakouts.

A lot of people swear by OCM to fully remove makeup and sunscreen
