What is your best non greasy sunscreen for the face?

I’d love to be able to use the good thick Cancer Council one that I use on my body, but I just can’t tokerate the really greasy feeling.

Thanks!

Neutrogena Dry Touch. I have very fine fair so also use it where my hair parts and it doesn't make my hair oily.

Cetaphil. It's moisturising but not greasy.

Have you tried the cancer council one in the grey bottle? It's a 50+ and has a non greasy finish (I think it's a newer version of last year's tradie sunscreen which came in a green bottle). It feels much nicer on the skin than conventional sunscreen as it has the dry finish you're looking for.

ETA it's the active sunscreen https://www.cancerco...ctive-pump.html

Looks like they still do the work one as well so this is an extension of the range. The work one is brilliant for protection and the finish is very dry. Goes on really well on hairy skin too.

La Roche-Posay and Neutrogena are two that I use quite regularly as neither leave my face feeling greasy. There is also one at Mecca that is good (to save face?).

One I’m currently using is Khiels super fluid, but I picked it up overseas. It’s too bad it’s not available here as it absorbs quickly so I’m not waiting to put on my makeup.

I use a neutrogena face sunscreen, its amazing and goes under make up nicely.

I like Invisible Zinc and Mecca To Save Face. Invisible Zinc might be too greasy for you - I don’t mind it and don’t find it too greasy especially for a high SPF zinc sunscreen.

Nivea Sun moisturising sunscreen, it's 50 plus, non greasy on my oily skin and smells yummy. I try to wear it every day.

Cancer Council does a specific day moisturiser with sunscreen that is 50+. I use that, that's not greasy. You can get it in a tinted version too. Otherwise their 'sport' sunscreen isn't greasy - I think someone already mentioned it - the one in the grey bottle.

The active one has been around for years, but for some annoying reason not in the really big pump pack.

I like Mecca to save face.

I use this one daily, great for humid days.  Comes in clear as well.

Neutrogena.

The Natio one felt ok when I tried it on my hand.

La Roche Posay Anthelios XL SPF50. They brand it as ‘ultra light’. It’s more like a milk than a cream. I use it on my face, neck and décolletage. Sinks in well.

(It’s a bit too dribbly for body usage, I reckon).

I use a Clinique sunscreen. It’s in a bright yellow tube.

I developed an allergy to the neutrogena dry touch. Now using La Roche Posay anthelios XL as well and have been happy with it so far. It’s not heavy at all, and works well under makeup.

I'm giving Go-To's Zincredible a go at the moment. I like it, goes on nicely, sinks in quick and works well under make up, only SPF15 and I'm not sure its so ground-breakingly amazing that I'd buy bottles of it, but so far so good!

I also vote for the new cancer council face one. It’s matte finish and goes beautifully under makeup, spf50, unscented, doesn’t irritate my eyes, waterproof and affordable. It’s a recent discovery for me but it’s changed my life basically haha. I’ve been looking for a product like this one for years

Mecca - it feels like a lovely moisturiser rather than a sunscreen.

Thanks everyone! I’ll give these a try at the shops in the weekend!

I'm also keen to try the go to skincare tinted zincredible. Has anyone used it yet?

#23 Jembo

Posted 04 December 2018 - 08:46 PM

I use the Cancer Council grey one as well, and find it the best.  Just wish they would bring it out in a bigger size, costs me a fortune in those small tubes and pump.

#24 EmmDasher

I have Lozoodle. It was fine but not amazing. It’s only spf 15 and I think it’s not really any better or worse than invisible zinc - maybe a bit lighter? I wouldn’t repurchase at the price but I also don’t have strong feelings about zinc.

Stay away from Banana Boat Dry Touch.
It is amazing non greasy, including for face. One of the few my child isn't allergic to and will tolerate ( even with his sensitivities?), but it doesn't protect! We had horrible sunburns with this sunscreen ( applied liberally, 15 minutes before, all areas covered and it wasn't in midday sun, but 40 mins walk in late afternoon). Before that episode I realized my pale child looks tanned yet he always wears sunscreen ( applied before school and at school pick up), turned out sunscreen didn't work.
