I love Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Lightweight Body Lotion SPF 30!! It’s light with an SPF of 30, but very moisturizing, and has a hint of scent that smells like coconut!

I ‘m going to get serious criticism for this , but I very rarely use sunscreen . Especially not when I’m at home in Canada 🙂

Doesn’t matter how cloudy and cold the weather tends to be up here in Canada the majority of the year, you really need sunscreen! I don’t wear sunscreen if I’m only at home all day and getting no more than like, 20 minutes of partial and random sun exposure, but if I’ll be leaving the house for more than half an hour, even if I’m spending most of my time indoors after leaving the house, I’d wear sunscreen.

I don’t currently have one, though, for my face or my body. I can’t find any good large sunscreen bottles for the body that contain zinc oxide, they all seem to be chemical only. And I’d rather not be forced to reapply every two hours on a normal day. And I haven’t found one for my face that contains zinc and that doesn’t break me out or make me shiny. Uhg.

I have! I’ve had no problems using it (oily, kind of acne prone skin) although I’ve heard that it can sting really sensitive skin.

I use neutrogena sunscreen. Very light weight and dries quick. Never feel sticky! Spf 45 is what I am using, but they are also available in spf 60. Combat both UVA/UVB!

i love neutrogena too! its one of the best i think and its very inexpensive. now they even have an SPF 90

yeah i used to love their sunscreen too, but then i found out that they test on animals.. guess i’ll have to find a new HG sunscreen

I’m currently using Sheseido Extra Smooth Sun Protection Lotion. I was using Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunblock, but the controversy of Oxybenzone made me toss it.

I love cliniques sunscreen! it leaves a non greasy feel and doesnt break me out! I use the spf 50 face lotion everyday 🙂

Because I’m so fair and I get bad heat rash (I’ve been told the kind I get is probably the sunscrean reacting with the sun and my skin, which causes a lot of redness and big tender itchy welts), so i have to use senstitive sunscreen, I was recommended Piz Buin Allergy SPF 50. I tried it last weekend and it was brilliant, no lumps, redness or itching.

i know the question was about body sunscreen, but for my face I’ve just recieved Elizabeth Arden 8 hour sun defence cream SPF 50 in the post, which is oil free as I have spot prone skin, so I’m quite interested to try that out.

Michelle Phan has her IQQU sunscreen which is apparently amazing and you can wear it over top of makeup and reapply without messing your makeup up obviously it’s for the face (I’m sure you can use it on the body?)

But otherwise I ADORE Hawaiian Tropics LOTION sunscreen in the cream coloured bottle. It smells amazing and doesn’t feel like sunscreen when you put it on and moisturizes your skin! It’s glorious and it’s not suuuper expensive!

aveeno’s continous protection! it’s amaaazing!
kinda thick but after it melts in it’s great!
my cousins even noticed how non greasy and non sticky it was just make sure to rub in well.
it’s spf 100 too!

I use Aveda’s Daily Light Guard with SPF 15.. I don’t actually use it every day, but just when I’m on vacation and in the summer. I actually really like it because it doesn’t have a sunscreen-y feel, and I like the Aveda scent 🙂

I love La Roche-Posay sunscreen in SPF 60. It’s lightweight, non-greasy, and very long lasting.

The whole Lancaster Tan activating range! AMAZING stuff! A shimmery, silky lotion that makes my milky white skin tan in NO time, without ANY redness. Pricey, but definatly worth it!

I use Aveeno baby SPF55 and then layer that with Neutrogena SPF70. I find that since baby sunscreen is thin it blends better, plus my derm gave me a sample so I assume its okay 🙂

I don’t use any but I am looking into facial sunscreen atm!
Christine I have a dark skin tone, would it be okay to use SPF40 everyday even though the weather is constantly changing where I live? Or is it too much? Thanks! 🙂

STill looking for recommendations, since everything’s breaking my skin out! Right now, I’ve settled for mixing a TINY amount of Cetaphils SPF 50 with my Clinique moisturizer in the morning. If i use too much, I break out, but if i use a teeny amount, the moisturizer helps me cover my whole face with it, and I can use it on my body, since I don’t really care about getting infections/irritations anywhere but my face.
