    Default Odourless(or little scent) Sunscreen Recommendations

    While I think people here would agree that Mitchum unscented is a no brainer when it comes to unscented antiperspirants, there doesn't seem to much of a consensus regarding sunblocks as it becomes a necessity during the warmer months.

    I am looking for input on the subject of a good body sunscreen with adequete UVA/UVB protection(SPF30 and up preferred), while doesn't have to be totally sheer should not make me look oiled, and most importantly must not have a strong scent and preferably as affordable as reasonably possible.

    I can take physical sunblocks as long they don't make me look vampire white-washed. Here in canada I have had purchased Jamieson Vitamin A Retinol Vital Day Moisturizer SPF 20 and liked the texture and its lack of a distinguishable scent, but the unnatural white finish and SPF 20 seem a little low for whole day outdoors. If anyone has ideas on what products I might try next please, your input is greatly appreciated.

    In Canada, can you get L'Oreal products that contain Mexoryl (you can't in the U.S.)? I use their "SOLAR EXPERTISE specially for kids" 50+ SPF UVA/UVB Barrier Protection Lotion.

    No fragrance, no colour. It's a white lotion that goes on as a clear film. It's slightly shiny, slightly sticky, but no more so than other sunblocks, and less than many. This product has not given me a headache (Neutrogen's Persol did) and leaves not a trace of white on my predominantly black clothing Great stuff.

    I've also heard good things about Avalon Organics, though I haven't tried their sunblock. I believe they're a U.S. based company, so you should have no trouble getting hold of it.

    Both are fairly reasonably priced products.

    I, having hardly any melanin in my skin, have found Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch SPF 55 to be incredible. It really has no scent and I can wear it all over everyday in the summer. It is worth every penny if you want to avoid harmful sun rays and it never feels like I have sticky lotion on.

    I have Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch SPF 55 left from last summer and I find it to have quite a distinguishable lightly creamy herbal musky smell. While it is by no means a strong smell and I have no trouble wearing it solo, it does havoc with many perfumes when worn together.

    I've not used L'Oreal and I'll look into this, thanks mysteriousmongoose!

    I was in a pharmacy yesterday, and tried the Vichy 50+ sunblock (also contains Mexoryl); it seems to nearly fragrance free.
    Thing is, even the sunblock chemistry alone can do odd things to a fragrance; I seldom apply fragrance anywhere other than the underside/back of my hair, but definitely stick with this approach if I'm wearing sunblock, then the two don't interact physically with one another.
