My absolute favorite go-to sunscreen is Fotoprotector Solar Fusion Fluid by a Spanish “cosmeceuticals” brand called ISDIN.

On my face lately I’ve been liking Kiss My Face for Face & Neck (but I’m always open to trying out the perfect sunscreen for my face). But on my body I use Coppertone for babies. I have to use a baby sunscreen on my body because I have a sun allergy and get really itchy otherwise.

I have a closet full of different types and strengths of spf- I love Neutrogena products. We go through it so quickly, I tend to buy whatever is on sale. On my face I like to use a bb cream or tinted moisturizer that has a 15 or 30 spf. I find that regular sunscreen on my face makes me break out and also ends up running in my eyes and stinging.

I have super sensitive skin and have a hard time finding sunscreen I can put on my face. I bought Hypoallergenic Face Lotion by Aruba Aloe while in Aruba and will never use anything else. It’s nice and moisturizing for my dryyyyy skin too!

I made a mistake! I use the Very Water Resistant Sunscreen SPF 30 for Faces by Aruba Aloe. Great for sensitive skin!

I haven’t found a body one I really like (though Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch is one I don’t hate fwiw), but for my face I love Peter Thomas Roth Uber Dry SPF 30. Yes, it’s meant for the body, but it’s never broken me out and the 4 oz size plus price (~$26) make it hard to justify use on my body. It’s very matte and sweat/water resistant so it’s great for my oily skin and our humid summers.

Neutrogena is the best. Their spf product line has something for everyone. I am very pale and burn easily. I like dry touch and their face moisturizer. Their products do not irritate the skin.

La Roche Posay SPF 50 Dry Touch absolutely the best protection with the highest PPD on the market.
Bioderma and Vichy are great also with high PPD

For the beach or pool I use Vanicream SPF 60. No need for vanity – i’m trying not to get burned! For around town or under makeup it’s Elta MD or SunBears (if I can get it).

Hi,
As someone who lives in Queensland, Australia, which has the highest rate of melanoma in the world, I know the importance of a good sunscreen. I need to inform you that any sunscreen that you purchase that does not have listed in its active ingredients either zinc or titanium is a waste of money. It will not protect you from sunburn and cancer. Only purchase sunscreen products which have either zinc or titanium in them.

Thanks.

I swear by VMV Armada line of sunscreens, they’re all hypo-allergenic and really protects so well. Dr Hauschka used to be my favorite but it was phased out already.
