sunscreen for extremely sensitive skin
I am allergic to most sunscreens. The ones I am not allergic to are the ones that reflect light but they usually leave a white cast on the skin. Can anyone recommend a sunscreen for extremely sensitive skin that I can use before applying makeup that wont interfere with the color?

Certain physical sunscreen will sit on the skin to reflect light and leave white cast. Why don't you try Super Daylight Savings SPF 25? It's full of natural and good for you ingredients, and is currently 1/2 off because Sephora is discontinuing the line (not because it's not good). It comes out nude color but disappears onto my combo skin fine and actually slightly mattifies it unlike other moisturizers.
If you've got 100pts to spare, promo code "bigspf" will give you 3 choice of half-sized (.5-1oz) anti-aging moisturizers with SPF20-30. I have the PTR and Murad one and love them both, more Murad one cuz it's more hydrating and sinks in better. I recommend you check those out.
Try Anthelios 50 Mineral Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid from La Roche Posay, it sounds like the ones you're not alergic to are the mineral based/natural ones. This one sinks into skin really well and isn't thick or goopy to apply so there won't be a color cast left over, you can even mix it in with your lotion since it's so thin in texture.
I am also allergic to chemical sunscreens. I bought Peter Thomas Roth's mineral SPF 30 sunscreen but haven't had a chance to use it yet. I use Josie Maran's Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 40 every day under makeup. It is white out of the bottle but absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a white cast or residue on my skin. It has a slightly strong coconut-like fragrance out of the bottle but this goes away rather quickly too. I don't notice any white tint or smell once it has absorbed into my skin. And, frankly, none of this bothers me because it is the only moisturizer with sunscreen my super sensitive skin tolerates on a daily basis.
