The best sunblock for body use is the kind that comes in the spray can. It covers really well and yor hands stay clean, and it dries to a non-greasy feel. Most makeups contain sunblock so I don’t use a facial sunblock.
I make sure my moisturizer has sunblock in it, but for the rest of the body I actually really like the Neutrogena spray kind, I actually don’t feel that greasy feeling from it. It was also recommended by my hubby’s dermatologist when we went to go get moles checked out. My husband is also part of this program called Ride-A-Wave and one of their sponsers is Burnout Skincare. They have this gel sunblock that he said is really great and it doesn’t even feel greasy on your face. http://burnoutsun.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=BS&Product_Code=6400&Category_Code=gel_sunscreen
I like Nivea Sun. It’s like moisturizing sunblock, so it absorbs completely. Love it! And the face stuff doesn’t make me break out, extra points!
Try Kiehl’s Ultra Protection Water-Based Sunscreen SPF 25 – I swear by it 🙂 And I hate anything oily or heavy….
I use Clinique Superdefense moisturizer with SPF 25.
I need to find a great one asap! I have had coppertone but haven’t used nivea before.
After our fiasco last spring when I got the worst sunburn I ever had (thought I was in the shade and we were talking to a mom of one of T’s college buddies that happened to be at same resort), I need a great one for Jamaica!
Liquid sunblocks are great but wear off after a couple of hours and it may not be very convenient for a lot of people to reapply on the face especially if you wear makeup. I suggest a powder sunblock. It comes in a refillable brush/tube type so you can easily reapply sunblock throughout the day even if you have makeup on. The type I currently use is called Colore Science (http://www.colorescience.com/1280×1024/flash/index.html). It’s weightless and have any odors.
I use Epicurian on my face and ColoreScience on my arms and chest everyday — the best ever!
Oops– I meant to say it does not have any odor!
Try Sierra Summits-it feels light and it’s SPF 40. It doesn’t leave that white/gray residue either.
I wear Clinique SPF 40 Cityblock every day. It has a touch of colour in it, but it’s very subtle. I’ve never had a problem with it feeling greasy or clogging my pores, and I have very sensitive skin. I know that Meroxyl is the best ‘block’ out there, but it tends to irritate my skin. You want something that has both a physical block (zinc or titanium dioxide) and a chemical block (Meroxyl or similar) for maximum protection against both UVA and UVB rays. The Neutrogena dry-touch has both and is very popular, but it does feel heavier than the Clinique (at least in my opinion).
