Yes does any one have a good sunscreen that they could recommend i have tried using the coppertone SPF15 that says on the cover that wont clog pores and wnt cause breakouts. But i have alot of redmarks and everytime i put it on my face it seems to make the red marks redder.

for how long have u been taking Accutane ? is your skin very dry ?

I started to get really Dry after 20 days of taking Accutane, didnt put on any moisturizer since day 1 (BIG MISTAKE) so when I got very dry (couldnt even smile) I run to the store to look for some good moisturizer. I couldnt decide between 5 different moisturizer , so I bought them all .

"Coppertone Oil Free Faces SPF 30 non comedogenic" = made me break out + experienced a rush.

"Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture SPF 15" = did nothing but burn my face.

"Neutrogena Oil Free Formula Sensitive Skin" = didnt work for me.Got more red patches and little bumps.

"Clinique Moisture in Control Oil Free Lotion" = broke me out like crazy.

"Eucerin Extra Protective Moisture Lotion, SPF 30 " = left my skin dried out

"Neutrogena Healthy Defense SPF 30 Daily Moisturizer non comedogenic (Medium Tint)" = so far so good, didnt break me out , doesn't make my red marks look redder(they looked better after just1 time of using it.

My only complaint is that it forms small clumps if not blended right, also I wouldnt recommend the tinted version (the medium tinted has a weird brown color that looks like a fake tan ! Other than that its a great moisturizer (specially for sensitive acne/prone skin)
