Post neutrogena help

i am on tazorac every night for acne and i am using neostrata oil free lotion/spf 15 in the day but find it greasy and making my face oily...i was wondering if anyone has used neutrogena sensitive skin spf 17 (or 30) or ultra dry touch sun block and if they had breakouts, success, etc.

Thumbs up

I use the ultra dry touch and it is by far the best sunscreen I have found! I wouldn't say that it is totally matte, but it is less oily than anything else I have ever tried, and believe me, I am a connoisseur of sunscreens! I don't get REALLY oily until summer, so I have yet to see if it passes that test, but so far I love it!

does this sunscreen (ultra dry touch) double as a moisturizer too. What moisturizer do you use?

If you are very oily, I think the sunscreen alone would be sufficient as a moisturizer for you. Personally, I use Neutrogena Multi-Vitamin Acne Treatment under it. I know it sounds like it would be drying, but it isn't. I guess they call it an "acne treatment" because it has salicylic acid in it to help clear pores, but it is in a moisturizing, lotion-type base. It also has AHA's, vitamins and antioxidants in it.

Wow, the two products I recommend are already in this forum. Neutrogena's UltraSheer Dry-Touch Sunblock is now my favorite sunscreen. It's got a light scent so it won't overwhelm you, it's very light and doesn't weigh your skin down, but best of all, it does in fact leave a rather matte finish (as opposed to almost every other sunscreen out there). I use it as my daily moisturizer, since it contains vitamins and provides broad spectrum SPF30 protection (I'm very fair skinned, so 30 is my safe-zone).

If you have problems with acne or blemishes, Neutrogena's Multi-Vitamin Acne treatment works exceptionally well (it doesn't work right away, but after continued use, blemishes are virtually gone). I use that before applying the sunblock. Hope this helps!

Hey Fargo,
What is the active ingredient in the SPF 30 version? I have the SPF 45, but it stings a bit if I put it on the skin around my eyes. I think it is due to the avobenzone. Just wondering if the SPF 30 has titanium dioxide or zinc oxide in it instead.

Really? That's unusual. I've never heard of a sunscreen product irritating the skin. I guess it's possible. No, the active ingredients in the SPF 30 are: 2.0% Avobenzone, 7.0% Homosalate, 7.5% Octinoxate, 5.0% Octisalate, and 3.0% Oxybenzone
