Haven't seen a thread about this, so here is one.

I have trouble finding a good sunscreen that meets my needs…I live in europe and in my country, most people don't wear sunscreen daily so it's hard to even find anything.

I can only wear Zinc Oxide (aka mineral) sunscreens without fragrances and stuff, my skin is extremely sensitive. The one I'm using right now makes my face super greasy but it works well. I usually get it from iherb, but since it's an american site and customs duties are changing, I might not be able to get it anymore.
Tinted mineral sunscreens are great because they don't leave a white cast.

Does anyone have recommendations?

No. 86437

Do tinted korean/japanese sunscreens exist? I've never seen one.

Yes, I have this biore one. I'd rather just wear regular sunscreen + bb cream personally, not a big fan of it because it doesn't match my skintone. But if you're just trying to avoid a white cast maybe it's good.

No. 86439

Currently using the Sephora tinted sunscreen and I love it, it's so lightweight and has a pretty good coverage for being sunscreen. It's only SPF 20 though, do you guys think I should double up with a sunscreen underneath as well or is 20 sufficient?

Why not just use BB cream with SPF?

No. 86479

Because to get the listed SPF, you need to apply quite generously (2g/cm^2, the testing benchmark or ~1/4-1/2 teaspoon/2ml is a rule of thumb).

No. 86506

you have to do the same with these. and bb creams usually have 50 spf, and work differently than western sunscreens.

No. 86531

Yes, but putting on a thicker layer of sunscreen or moisturizer with SPF is more feasible than globbing on makeup.

Also bb creams have the same sunscreen ingredients (anything they say about it being skincare primarily is bs) so you don't know what you're talking about.

This is the worst sunscreen I ever used. It makes me look like a clammy mottled corpse and I'm not even that dark. I can't imagine how it would look on someone even vaguely tan. It's greasy, tacky, and sticky, and it even sticks to your clothes. There is nothing appealing or cosmetically elegant about it, and this tiny bottle set me back $28.

I've since moved on to the Biore UV aqua rich watery essence and I LOVE it. It's like night and day. I'll never use any American-marketed sunscreen again. They're all unanimously such shit compared to Japanese formulas.

alba botanica's facial mineral sunscreen works well for me, even under makeup. aside from that, any kids/babies spray on would probably be gentle enough to work for you - i'm very pale with sensitive + easily burnt skin, so i usually start off w a zinc and then reapply a spray a while afterwards. works well esp for hardcore beach/pool days when u will be in the direct sun and swimming for a while

I used to wear toddler roll-on sunscreen because it was high SPF, low-irritant and absorbed well. just got it at the chemist, but it didn't like "sit" well on my face w/ makeup like a fancy grown-up one would be nice but if it's tantamount to the same thing then whatever is cheap and good & mixes well with basic vitamin e/sorbolene cream is sick.
also regarding makeup, if you wear liquid concealer/light powder & not much else whatta do? anyone have experience with like a spray/mist variety?

For the face I use Eucerin Sun Fluid Sensitive Protect SPF 50+. A dermatologist I know who mainly works with cosmetic dermatology mentioned it as her general go-to recommendation for sun protection. Where I live many pharmacies have their products.

I probably have an early stage of rosacea subtype 1 (erythematotelangiectatic). My cheeks are always red, I have telangiectasias, I can't wear makeup beyond covering spots because it makes my cheeks and face sting, burn and flush even more, and even my eyes can go red and itchy even if I don't apply anything near them. So my skin is very sensitive (not very breakout prone though). This sunscreen does not trigger any of these symptoms for me.

I’ve been using this and it’s honestly been great. Leaves a cast that you have to run in but it’s not drying or expensive and never made me breakout.

I have spray sunscreen, but I don't wear heavy makeup and tbh I'm not sure if the spray is enough coverage. I don't go out in the sun for long enough periods to need reapplication most of the time, if I was being really cautious I'd probably just reapply sunscreen regularly and redo my makeup.

I've tried both Badger sunscreens and the rose one is pretty chalky but it works and has some coverage. I usually wear it if I'm doing a grocery store or gym run.

Bought this one today, for oily skin, wish me luck that it'll work with my foundation.

The minimum you'd need is 30 for it to be effective protection, ideally 50. Also make sure you use enough for the sunscreen to be effective. Even at spf 50 if you aren't using the right amount it's not going be effective, not to mention that sunscreen stops working around every two hours (which I hate)

Anyways, can anyone recommend a good powder sunscreen? Or a good moisturizing sunscreen, I have one that's decent enough but it's almost done so I want to try something new

I accidentally bought pic attached (COSRX Aloe Soothing Sun Cream SPF50 PA+++) using amazon one click, it arrives tomorrow. Anyone have any experience with it?
I usually use this cetaphil oil control/acne prone 30 spf moisturizer which I like a lot. It really helps with oil control but I'd prefer a higher spf.
I've also used coola matte mineral tinted sunscreen, which I loved the texture and gives a nice sheer coverage. It's just a little too pricey to use on the regular for me.

Back with an update!
I forgot to mention in my first post, but I have normal-oily skin.
Overall I like the product, but like a lot of other anons said, it’s a heavier formula that did leave me kinda greasy after a couple of hours. I plan to wear it on my mascara and chapstick days (maybe moreso in winter), but it wouldn’t work well under makeup for myself. It hasn’t caused any breakouts and left my skin very moisturized. Overall it’s a good product, just better suited for dryer skin.

I’m so fucking bitter I can’t get any sunscreen with SPF 100 in my country. Not everyone wants to look like an overripe orange and I burn really easily so it’s even worse.

You’d think in Scandinavia of all places with a lot of naturally pale people it should be easy to find strong sunscreen, particularly since a lot of people are obsessed with traveling to hotter places. But apparently skin cancer, sun spots and looking like shriveled up carrot at 40 is far more desirable to people than not being as tan as humanly possible. Barf.

No. 88310

SPF100 is a meme. It's not confirmed that it even helps more than lower numbers.
An SPF of 50 will block like 97-99% of the UV rays so it's not necessary to have a higher number to begin with.

You're good with a daily SPF30, you can use 50 if you're desperate. But anything higher is unnecessary since you live in Scandinavia, where sun exposure isn't extremely high anyway.
Just make sure you're applying enough product and it's a broad spectrum sunscreen.

No. 88320

I think there might be some sort of EU regulation about skincare companies not being able to label things higher than spf50 for this reason actually.

No. 88333

Listen to >>88310. It's more about reapplying the sunscreen every two hours, or if you sweat a lot/ went swimming. Wear a hat and other protective clothing or think about getting an UV sun umbrella (they have a SPF of 50 I believe).

If you really don't give a fuck, you could wear zinc. Otherwise 50 spf + covering as much skin as possible, wearing a hat, using a parasol/umbrella. Ideally just don't go out in the sun, I find it really easy to avoid tbh.

I recently started using NIODs Survival 30 and it's the best I've ever tried for my Scandinavian slightly oily skin. It's great under make up (feels kind of like a primer) and contains a bunch of antioxidants and other protective stuff, mineral only, no white cast, fragrance free and not tested on animals. Not available in the US or Australia yet though.

I'm suprised it hasn't been posted yet but, hands down the best sunscreen I've ever and only use is the Anessa line by Shiseido. It's only flaw is that it's extrmely water proof where you HAVE to use soap/face wash to remove it. Though there were a few instances where I went to sleep with it on and I've never broken out or anything.

They tend to change/update their formula every year but It's never seemed to have chnaged for the worst. I've actually tried three of their main suncreens for 2018 this year, here's a quick review/overview of them.

>Gold Pefect UV Suncreen Milk

They really outdid themselves this year. Leaves no whitecast, and has the mosturizing effects of their previous years silver line. In no way drying like Biore. ALso leaves virtualy no white cast.
>Whitening UV Sunscreen Gel
Good for dark spots. The gel is slightly thicker than the milks, although it looks almost identical. This year seems slightly more astringent but not really drying. Not sure if they increased the amount of Hylouronic or m-tranexamic acid(whitening agent). Sensitive persons take note. Also leaves faint white cast
>Perfect UV Sunscreen MILD Milk
Identecial in effect to the regular gold perfect uv milk with the bonus of no alcohols. Perfect for people with sensitive skin. Would be superior to the regular version were it not for the obvious white cast it leaves.

Only flaw about this line is that it is hard to obtain and expensive outside of Japan amd SE Asia. I usually buy it every spring when I visit Japan. Though my friend had recently finished the bottle I got her and bought another one off amazon. It was legit albeit expensive, so just look at the reviews of the seller.

I'd recommend the gold prefect milk. Here's the list of ingredients:
>Dimethicone · Water · Zinc oxide · Ethanol · Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate · Talc · Isopropyl myristate · Methyl methacrylate · Crosspolymer · Cyclopentasiloxane · Isododecane · Octocrylene · Titanium oxide · PEG-9 Polydimethylsiloxyethyl dimethicone · Diethylaminohydroxybenzoyl benzoate Acid hexyl · glycerin · diisopropyl sebacate · (vinyl dimethicone / methicone silsesquioxane) Crosspolymer · silica · dextrin palmitate · xylitol · trimethylsiloxysilicate · bisethylhexyloxyphenol methoxyphenyl triazine · PEG / PPG-14/7 Dimethyl ether · Na chloride · Tea extract · Sakura leaf extract · Caninabara fruit extract · Acetyl hyaluronate Na · Tolmenchora root Extract · Aloe vera leaf extract · Water soluble collagen · PPG-17 · triethoxy caprylyl silane · isostearic acid · distearyl dimonium chloride · disteardimonium hectorite · hydroxide AI · stearic acid · EDTA-3Na · BHT · tocopherol · Isopropanol · BG · Na pyrosulfite · Phenoxyethanol · Perfume

Same ingredients apply to apply to the others the difference being whitening gel has added Hyloraunic acid and m-tranexamic acid, while th the mild milk has most of the alcohols omitted.

No. 92288

I use the point method when I apply(1 on each cheek, forehead,chin, neck, nose). You won't have a white cast so long as you don't use more than a american dime size for each point. There were times when I had been in a rush before work and put too much on but even then the cast was faint. I use it as a primer, and even with the light make up I use it's not noticible. You honestly don't need much as it's thin and spreads really easy. One bottle lasts me up to 4 months at most, and that's including using it on my arms as well rather frequently. I live in California so If you live in place that's not as sunny it could last you longer.

As for where to cop it cheap I can't really say for sure unfortunately. The regular gold seems REALLY popular this year. When I purchased it, they had a limit to 2 per person, that's kind of why I bought the other's to compensate. Amazon looks kinda pricy, maybe try Rakuten global. Rakuten global looks to be much cheaper at 23CAD a bottle but they seem to only ship EMS(20CAD). Maybe try and browse a shop for others things or stock up a buy multiple to save money. Just be sure to try to avoid third party sellers or ones putside of Japan because my friend has told me there are a lot of chinese fakes on the market.

One thing to note to everyone is that you have to relally shake the bottle to mix the formula well before you apply it.

No. 92399

Yessss best sunscreen and the only one I'll ever buy. No weird white cast and it's super cheap too in comparison with other sunscreens.

I never have pilling with it and I put 6 different products on my face before AND afterwards. Are you letting it dry for a few minutes? Make sure you're rubbing it in with circular motions and then patting it in so it doesn't sit on top of your face. If you're doing both of these and your makeup is still pilling, then it's definitely the shitty quality of your skin makeup and you should find a better product.

You shouldn't have to reapply it every few hours unless you're going to be outdoors all day in which case, you shouldn't be wearing any sort of makeup anyway as ALL of it's just going to melt right off down to your eyeliner. Your sunscreen lasts around 4 hours when exposed to sunlight, so unless you're outside longer than that a day, you really only need to apply it once.

No. 97350

Where is a good place to buy it if I don't mind waiting a month?

You can find it on Amazon, I ordered it there before I discovered an asian drugstore in my town. The product was legit and you can get a pack of two for $20.
