Share your favorite sunscreen/sunblock!

Recommended Posts

There are so many choices, it so hard to figure out what works and what doesn't. What do you use for your face and body? What do you recommend for the oily prone?

I have very sensitive, oily, acne prone skin on my face.  I find that if I use nomral sunscreen on my face I turn into a pimpled, oily mess.  I use neutrogena daily lotion healthy defense instead.  You can get it with spf of 30 or 45, I usually use just the 30. I find that its light and my skin absorbs it quickly, therefore, leaving less oil!!  As to the body I usually use what ever is on sale and cheapest!

i too have very sensitive skin, and i find that the baby sunscreen that i use on my 10 month old son works the best for me, and walmart has it in the baby section in travel size bottles.

i have extremely dry skin so I use a clinique moisturizer with spf 45 for my face and my body is usually a spray since I feel it applies easier and with less grease

I use neutorgena untra sheer body mist has an advance sunscreen that covers almost all UVA/UVB rays and it comes in high spf formulas.  The mist is super fine and it feel like NOTHING once its on.  Non greasy - absolutely gorgeous.

 

 

I break out on my face from chemical sunscreens so I use the Josie Maran Protect Spf 40 facial sunscreen.  It is amazing for my combo skin as a moisturizer, sunscreen, and makeup primer.  And only contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as thier sunscreen ingredients...which are advanced ingredients in terms of sun protection and also natural minerals.  It is non greasy and does not leave any white cast at all.

I bought it at the pharmacy here in NJ, i think Rite Aid, and i just bought a Coppertone 50 with Zinc Oxide in it at Rite Aid the other day since i have been jogging by the ocean every morning and i am getting WAY to tan...and wanted higher coverage. I wont put the coppertone on my fave, so i use that on body and Blue Lizard on face. I you dont have Rite Aid, try a health food store, they always have the natural products that are chemical free :)

I also like Aveeno Sunscreen for my body and sometimes my face depending upon where I'm going. Shiseido has a nice and light sunscreen for face.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
