Well summer is finally here in canada. I'm looking for an spf of about 30 as well as an spf of 8-10 so i can tan.

1. So, what kinda of sunscreen do you guys use?

2. Is there a sunscreen with lotion in it already that doesn't make your face shiny?

3. Do you use the same sunscreen on your face as on the rest of your body?

I live in So Cal (and thus sunscreen daily is an absolute must) and the only one I've found that doesn't increase my propensity to breakout is Clean & Clear Oxygenating Ultra-Light Moisturizer. It's only 15 but works pretty well for every day. I think this is the best one on the market for oily skin. Neutrogena and Oil of Olay have me breaking out like crazy despite their claims of being non-comedogenic and oil-free.

I would try to avoid tanning on your face if I were you and minimize the tanning on your body. Seriously, wrinkles and sun damage are much more expensive and difficult to reverse than acne.

Hi, I am in Canada too. For the past couple summers I have used Coppertone Oil-free sunblock (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=27880&catid=12101) which I find really good. I use it on my entire body including my face. It is NON-GREASY (very important), and it doesn't feel like you have a "film" on your skin. It hasn't caused any breakouts (it says "won't clog pores").
