I am really a big fan of Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock because it dries quickly and doesn't leave your skin looking greasy. It is perfect for the beach because the sand doesn't stick to it.
I also love spray sunscreens. They are great for applying sunscreen to kids quickly and reaching that hard spot in the middle of your back without anyone's help! I recently tried the cooling version which I found quite refreshing on a hot day.
But there is one last problem that I had not conquered until recently. Every time I put sunscreen on my face, it makes me break out. Grrrr. I know my skin is sensitive and all but I use lots of exfoliating and blemish removing products so as you can imagine I get quite annoyed that this continues to be a problem . But you have to put sunscreen on your face, so in the past I have used facial or tinted moisturizers containing a high SPF. There seems to be something that chemists do with sunscreen when it comes to a facial product that makes it less clogging to the pores and that results in no more blemishes for me! Up to this point the highest SPF I have been able to find in these formulas was a 25. Luckily Neutrogena has come to my aid with their Ultra Sheer Liquid Daily Sunblock available in a 55 SPF and a whopping 70 SPF (that's the one I'll be using!). They don't really market this as a face only product, only claiming on the label that it "layers invisibly under makeup", but I think they would really have a hot commodity on their hands if they did. I have been using this product for a couple of weeks now and it had not made me break out once! I feel confident in recommending this for those of you out there with sensitive skin. This formula is also waterproof. Lastly, it only costs $13.00 which is a fraction of the cost that similar products from La Mer and Chanel command at the department store counter. It's a win win situation!
One last thing. I know you hear it all the time, but please add sunscreen into your daily routine. It will seem normal after a while and you will be so happy you did. I keep a bottle in my purse at all times, just in case. And I am going to start keeping some in the car too, you never know when it will come in handy! XOXO
