best non-comedogenic sunscreen for acne prone skin??

Recommended Posts

Guest grace028

I am going away soon to somewhere hot and i really want to be able to wear sunscreen on my face without breaking out!!

Can anyone recommend a good oil-free non-comedogenic sunscreen ( at least spf 15) that will not break-out my acne prone sensitive skin!?

Thanks!

For me personally my mineral makeup is my sunscreen. It gives great sun protection, you dont need much, it looks natural, gives some coverage and it not too expensive.

As for body sunscreen - id go for a light milk, with the least amount of perfumes etc as possible. Ella Bache here in Australia do a great face sunscreen but they are not so cheap.

I enjoy the moisturizer in my signature (the one I wear during the day). It has SPF 15, is very gentle, a little goes a long way, and hasn't broken me out. It's a little pricey, but worth it, IMHO.

I use Olay sensitive skin with SPF 15. it's very effective, and doesn't affect acne. I add about 2-3 drops of jojoba oil to it.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock is my favorite. It has a fragrance, but it has a matte finish and has never broken me out (more than usual, anyway)

The loreal bare minerals is SPF 15 i think, and if you are in Australia - I use Purecover and this has sunscreen as well. I think bare escentuals is also SPF 15. Most mineral makeups are - its the minerals themselves that protect from the sun!

I wanted to try that but isn't it just oxybenzone etc. that has been proven to be way less effective than a typic zinc based one?

Try Olay Complete Defense moisturizer spf 30 for sensitive skin then I use Physicians Formula talc-free mineral face powder with spf 16,I love the results.It really works on my skin.
