I use Pipette which is gentle because meant for babies. Only issue is it leaves your skin dewy or feeling like there is a moisturizer sitting on top of your skin.

Paula's choice DEFENSE ESSENTIAL GLOW MOISTURIZER SPF 30. My HG đź‘Ś


FlailingatLife62

This looks nice but I haven't tried. How does it compare to the resist age defense tinted spf30? I like that one, but the tint was a little too pale and pink for me. Looked kind of calamine-y on me.


Lovisa_s

Sorry for a very late reply! It looks strange at first but then it soaks in. Im light olive skin tone and medium olive in the summer. I haven't tried the resist age..

Thank you!

I tried several past year (mainly for body) and found it is the octisalate/octocrylene that was giving me horrible rashes. I finally tried Blue Lizard Sensitive Mineral Sunscreen and no rash. It probably won't be good under makeup, though.

I LOVE Blue Lizard. I never burn when using it. Including when I'm in Hawaii or Florida (I'm pale and from up North). It works well under makeup because it creates a slightly tacky base that ends up blending with the makeup. YMMV of course.

I can’t use avobenzone or oxybenzone sunscreens on my face without it giving me a rash. I gave up on chemical sunscreen until I realized that I had a chemical sunscreen from an asian beauty box that never bothered me. So I looked up Korean and Japanese sunscreens, which contain active ingredients that American sunscreens don’t. That being said I ordered some Biore Aqua Rich from Amazon and it didn’t bother my skin at all! Unfortunately, I have yet to find a physical sunscreen that doesn’t apply a white cast or tint my skin some weird shade of orange.

Hands down favorite is skinmedica tinted mineral sunscreen. It’s the only one I actually *like* using. Minimal white tint on brown skin, super light, and great additional ingredients.

Laroche Posay makes descent mineral sunscreen.


FlailingatLife62

oh yes i 4got abt lrp. they have a lot of good ss's.


mom2bre

I can’t use anything with oxybenzone - only sunscreen that says “no tears” for kids or that has zinc or titanium dioxide. Hope this helps!


Ube_booty

AnalystNo3227

Been using this one for years and it’s the best. Just use moisturizer first and then put the tinted sunscreen on after

Not sure which you mean by Neutrogena sunscreen since they have so many, but I like their Clear Face Break-Out Free sunscreen for avoiding acne. Normally, it is the carrier ingredients required for SPF formulations that cause acne.

My HG sunscreen is Avene Solaire mineral (I use untinted and it doesn’t leave a white cast on my light skin but they do make a tinted version). I often get it on sale from Ulta or directly from the Avene website.

Bioderma has some really nice mineral ss's for acne / clog prones. Photoderm Nude Touch spf50 (a nice liquid tinted mineral) - gives a nice glowy-satin matte finish, non-drying but also non-comedogenic. Very sheer, just adds a nice sheer tint. I order online from Care to Beauty or Frenchcosmeticsclub. Or the Photoderm Covertouch spf50 if you want coverage. Thicker lotion, very pigmented, high coverage. A bit draggy, can skip pores if your skin is dry or has a lot of texture, but high coverage. However, because it's high coverage and tinted, it;s harder to find a match and I think it only comes in 2 colors. I prefer the NudeTouch because I usually use mu over my ss anyway, but if you are looking for a one step tinted mineral that works like a good coverage foundation, this would work. Another great option is the It! Cosmetics CC cream spf50- the oil free matte version is FF and mineral. They also have a regular formula CC cream that has a less matte finish, but it has fragrance and I'm not 100% sure it's mineral only. The regular cc cream is actually more cosmetically elegant and has a lovely skin like satin finish, but the fragrance in it irritated my skin. The Matte version is quite matte - a little too much for me, but if you are super oily it would work well. Bonus: the It! CC cream comes in lots of colors. I think Neutrogena just came out w/ a new spf30 mineral tinted in about 3-4 colors. I haven't tried it yet.

Pipette is good but, like someone else mentioned it dries down rather shiny/tacky. I always set it with a little bit of loose powder and it's fine.
