Facial sunscreen [no breakouts]

Hello

I have been trying several different types of moisturizers+sunscreen and sunscreens for my face. But every single one has caused me to break out. And it is not only frustrating to look red with whiteheads all along my jawline and around my mouth. But it is also painful! Especially around my jawline and the angle of my mandible.

I have tried: spf 70 Sport Face Neutrogena. spf 70 age control Neutrogena. moisture+spf15 Neutrogena. Ultra Sheer 30 spf Neutrogena. Clinique M protect.
Note: All above have noted non-comedogenic, Oil-free, does not clog pores, and does not cause breakouts.

Are there anyone out there that know any good facial sunscreens that does not cause breakouts? VICHY?

I absolutely need a sunscreen to my face. At least spf 30.

I can really tell you the one you can use. The best thing you can do is to check out the reviews of the sunscreen before purchasing it.

Re: Facial sunscreen [no breakouts]

It sounds to me like the titanium dioxide which is the active ingredient in each of those is what is making you break out. Sometimes, its the active ingredient in sunscreens which causes the whiteheads and the clogged pores.

Neutrogena also makes a line called Clear Face which contains all natural ingredients such as Mica and Zinc, neither of which clog pores and both are less irritating. Have you tried that one?

For over a year I have been using Coppertone oil free face fragrance free
SPF 30. Hypoallergenic.won't clog pores.
Goes on very nicely and has not caused me any breakouts.

I have really sensitive skin that tends to have breakouts. But when my doctor prescribed me with Hamilton sunscreen, I was happy that it did not cause any breakouts whatsoever. I have been using it eversince.

Re: Facial sunscreen [no breakouts]

Vanicreme is the BEST sunscreen I have used - its a completely physical block, so no chemical sunscreens. Completely fragrance and additive free. Its the only sunscreen I can use on my face without burning my eyelids (eczema) or making my face itchy, and I've tried them all. Good luck!
