UPDATE: I've used a few test candidate and added 3 new potentials (I have 'em at home but was busy testing other sunscreens first). For reference, here's my: Original post in this thread List of SPF requirements, because we don't all have the same skin: SpoilerI have mostly-dry combo and quite reactive/inflammation-prone skin, plus fairly sensitive eyes. I live someplace that gets all 4 seasons—sometimes within one week. 😂 (The joy of midwestern spring and having a Great Lake in your city's front yard.) In winter, I always need a separate moisturizer under sunscreen. In summer, I can skip moisturizer depending on the sunscreen I use. My skin tone’s in the “medium-deep to deep” range. Since I don't wear liquid or cream foundation, the finish a sunscreen leaves is very important. Must-haves: Minimum SPF of 30 Broad spectrum Natural, radiant, or glowy (but not greasy*) finish; preferably a naturally radiant look Blends easily; doesn’t require lots of rubbing (otherwise my skin will flush red for hours and possibly welt up) Bonus points for at least one good moisturizing ingredient (dimethicone, shea butter, squalane, etc.) *In winter, I don’t mind heavier greasy sunscreens. They’re an extra layer of protection from windburn and deep-freeze dehydration. But during summer, those sunscreens are usually too much for my face to handle. Example: I’ve temporarily stopped using the thick greasy CoTZ Sensitive SPF 40 Non-Tinted Mineral Sunscreen on my face, but still use it on my body. I’ll also pick up Canmake Mermaid Skin Gel UV SPF 50 Clear again when winter returns; that one gives me super dewy glass skin in the frigid depths of January. Dealbreakers: Noticeable white/grey/purple cast Eye stinging, if I plan to use it on my eyelids and undereyes (sometimes I'll use an eye-safe sunscreen in that area while using a different sunscreen on the rest of my face) Itchy reaction, or any bad reaction (rash, burning/stinging, etc.) Pilling Essential oils Lavender extract, water, or oil Strong fragrance or scent Very matte finish I have mostly-dry combo and quite reactive/inflammation-prone skin, plus fairly sensitive eyes.

A little sheer tinted powder or powder foundation fully removes the barely noticeable white cast. Has no scent. Very impressive for a non-tinted mineral sunscreen. Bondi Sands SPF 50 Fragrance Free Sunscreen Lotion (the body version) 👍 - fully invisible chemical sunscreen that leaves my skin shiny, but not as greasy as, say, Eucerin's Age Defense sunscreen (which I also like). Easy to blend out. Has a mild sunscreen smell, but not obnoxious enough to keep this product off my face. Plus, the body and face versions seem to have identical INCI lists (though they could be formulated differently); the body version gets me more product for my buck. Beauty of Joseon Relief Sun: Rice + Probiotics SPF 50 👍 with a caveat - chemical sunscreen that looks nearly invisible on me, except where it pools in my lines/wrinkles. This sunscreen contains a tinosorb, a type of chemical UV filter that can leave a white cast on skin. I tested it around my eyes and on my neck, 2 places where my lines live; I wound up with very noticeable stark white stripes in those lines within an hour of application. On the rest of my face, it left a dewy glowy finish—not "glass skin" but more than a natural glow. Has a faint plasticky sunscreen smell I stop noticing 30 minutes after application. Eucerin Oil Control Sunscreen SPF 50 😐 - chemical sunscreen that's 100% invisible on my skin. My oily zone is on and around my nose, but I didn't notice any "oil control" from this sunscreen. In fact, it gave my whole face the same shiny finish as Eucerin Age Defense Sunscreen, and it feels just as thick and greasy—which will be good in cold weather but not so great for me in summer. On a more positive note, it also doesn't mattify any of my skin, something I worried about because I don't like a very matte finish on my face. Eh, I'm neutral about this one for now... I've been using it on my neck, arms, legs, and feet without issue. New additions to my Test It list: SpoilerLa Roche-Posay Anthelios UVMune 400 Invisible Fluid SPF 50+ (non-tinted, fragrance-free) La Roche-Posay Anthelios UVMune 400 Hydrating Cream SPF 50+ Native Unscented Mineral Body Sunscreen SPF 30 (to see if it leaves as nice a finish as the face version) La Roche-Posay Anthelios UVMune 400 Invisible Fluid SPF 50+ (non-tinted, fragrance-free) La Roche-Posay Anthelios UVMune 400 Hydrating Cream SPF 50+ Native Unscented Mineral Body Sunscreen SPF 30 (to see if it leaves as nice a finish as the face version)
