Needed good physical sunscreen after doing a TCA peel and compared this to other ds ss and this had best physical suncreen ingredients and percentages. It does leave a white cast so I don't wear under makeup but wear when out walking my dogs or need to be outside for any length of time. I clog easily and am sensitive to fragrances and this does not break me out at all and I do not have any allergic reactions. For must have ss for post peel or just for being outside this is HG for me...will buy again...very reasonably priced and easy to find in the U.S.
I like that this does not burn. Its gentle on the face. Sunscreens are not cheap, even the safer natural ones. It does leave a white looking hue, but I usually put on some aloe first so it goes on smoother and won't leave those white patches. It gets the job done especially when you are snow white haha. I have the SPF 45+.
I do have to say though, I would probably try a more natural one, but this is definitely a good product to have in your purse for those hot days.
first off, the packaging looks so cute and chic...for a baby sunscreen? haha. this is my daily moisturizer. im a sunscreen nut, and spf60 seems just right for me. im VERY fair...i burn when i stand too close to the microwave, lol!
back on topic, it goes on very smooth, creamy and thick so you know youre protected and moisturized. but never greasy. it soaks right it. im so glad i found this. its my new holy grail.
This review is for Neutrogena Baby FACES SPF50
I have had a lot of problems with any kind of chemical sunscreen like Avobenzone. Using zinc oxide has solved the problem I was getting with all the other moisturizers w/SPF but it's been hard to find the right texture since these physical barrier sunblocks are heavier in texture.
This one for "FACE" has been the best one I've found so far that doesn't turn me super chalky white. I am so tan that usually these turn me a really attractive purple shade.
I first use Clinique DDM Gel as a primer then rub some of the sunblock on all over my face except my forehead, which is prone to be oily. The two step seems to help the zinc apply more smoothly and without sinking into my skin unattractively. It almost acts like makeup when used this way. I finish with the Skinceuticals powder suncreen on my forehead.
This is not perfect but I have used it two months now with no breakouts and it definitely helps block the constant California sun.
It left white patches unevenly all over the skin despite nanotechnology with these ingredients , and it felt like tack ..it was nearly impossible to wash off. It did prevent sunburns and is broad spectrum though.
If you want a sunblock with titanium dioxide/zinc oxide I recommend 'Eucerine Everyday Protection Face Lotions 30'. It still flakes but the flaking is not as bad and it is easier to wash off.
There are sunscreens that are safer, ingredient-wise. And this does leave a white cast, and it takes real scrubbing in the shower to get all traces off your skin. But it works. I am very fair-skinned, and my chest burns very easily, and this does the job of protecting the area for a long time. Also, it has not broken me out. But I would not use it on my face, as it's thick, and because it really stays put.
This suncreen does its job. I used it on my face and body and it perfectly protected my skin against sunburns, even after staying in the sun for many hours. However, this product made my face SO oily and shiny, I was just pouring oil!!! Not to mention the white cast that it left, which was super difficult to blend. When used on my body, it stuck to my skin so bad that I had to scrub it to remove it. I will never buy this sunscreen again.
Bought this on a whim because I needed a sunscreen, I was using Eucerin Daily Moisturizer with SPF but that was breaking me out... I love this sunscreen, it's perfect, rubs in with no white cast. Doesnt break me out and you cant beat the 60 spf! Love that it doesnt contain avobenzone as i read that stains clothes pretty bad.
So far so good :)
I've been using this sunblock for everyone in my family and it worked wonderfully well. No one gets rashes or allergy , break out , or dry damage skin after using it. I've been doing it for over 3 years. I live in a very dry hot climate and sunblock is a must. I tried coppertone, hawaiian tropic, and various organic baby sunblock in the past but I've always had issues with them causing skin allergies, they run, or they simply didn't protect my skin long enough. Titanium and zinc oxides are their basic natural sunblocks. It is water proof and I can even use it on my face without it causing breakout or run into my eyes. Even babies and children get very good result with sun protection when I use this on them. What I love even more it that it looks amazing when I mix a little of my mineral makeup with this sunblock to provide a tinted sunblock. My face is so smooth, and pretty like I actually have a primer on. It covers any blemishes I have without looking like I am wearing makeup. Serioiusly, people asked me what I used to make my skin to beautiful even in the hot sun. it didn't even fade, smear, or drip off when I spent time at the beach. It's one thing to be a sunblock, it's another thing to also be a cosmetic enhancement. I could never achieve this look with the other sunblocks. It does have a white cast so if you do not like the white cast, you can put a bronzer over it. Or you can mix bronzer with sunblock for that natural sun tan look. For some reason, everyone in my family looked better with it on, even the babies. People often complimented on the babies on how pretty they look when I put sunblock on for them. It lasts for about 60 minutes and is waterproof. it even made my mineral makeup waterproof too!
I have very sensitive skin and this is the only sun block that doesn't seem to irritate my skin. It generally does what it's supposed to do and isn't greasy, and smells ok. I use it on a regular basis.
