I use the CeraVe AM SPF lotion in the daytime and the PM lotion at night per dermatologist recommendation. I mean, the AM definitely feels more like sunscreen than regular lotion. Do other brands not??May 22, 2018 at 9:43 am #753654
Looks like The Star agrees! La Roche Posay facial sunscreen is a winner: https://www.thestar.com/life/fashion_style/2018/05/21/we-found-the-best-facial-sunscreen-ever-created.htmlMay 22, 2018 at 10:29 am #753664
Nice! I bought La Roche Posay, but the non tinted version because I was nervous to use it under foundation though I love the idea of tint. I find there’s still no white cast (I hear it may show up with camera flash?). I like it so far, but we will see with the sun protection. Doesn’t pill (as long as you tap it in, not rub it in). Light. I don’t reapply during the day as I’m at the office. I use it mainly for the commute in the car. I also got the sunscreen though because I started using a Kiehl’s spot reduction product and you really need SPF with that.May 22, 2018 at 10:35 am #753666
I bought this recently, I don’t have a problem with acne, but I really like it. It may be my favorite. A bit better price than some others, and just as (if not better) than most.May 23, 2018 at 6:32 am #753760
I did some more research into zinc and why it’s important in sunscreen and I switched to Elta MD for my face, Badger for the kids, and Blue Lizard Australian for all of us to share. All of these had great ratings on various sites and reviews online, and the Elta MD was recommended to my by a skincare nurse friend of mine. I really like it so far – it melts into the skin and doesn’t leave my face shiny, and no sunburn!May 23, 2018 at 8:15 am #753781
I’m so fair, I often get sunburnt even with a high SPF, so a physical barrier sunblock (zinc) has been my savior. It also counteracts redness which is helpful for me.May 23, 2018 at 8:22 am #753782
Wendy, is that a daily moisturizer or specifically a sunscreen? (the elta md)May 23, 2018 at 8:23 am #753783
So anon, that one you linked to counteracts redness?!?!
No matter what I do, my nose consistently gets red. Summer. Winter. Walking outside for 5 seconds. People think it’s sunburnt… but it just gets red! Immediately.May 23, 2018 at 8:35 am #753785
@ktfran, have you tried one of those green color corrector sticks? They gave one to this guy on Queer Eye who had rosacea or something, to use when he’s getting dressed up / date / wants to look nice. You can use it alone or under makeup, to counteract redness.May 23, 2018 at 8:42 am #753786
I did quite a few years ago, but it didn’t really work. I can’t remember the brand, but it was from one of the makeup counters at Nordstrom. Although I did see that QE,and thought I should try it again. I might have to go back and see if I can find the brand!
Thanks for the reminder Kate!May 23, 2018 at 8:48 am #753788
Maybelline has a bunch of color corrector stuff right now…May 23, 2018 at 9:10 am #753792
I’ll check it out. Thanks!
