    Default Any suggestions on a quality sunscreen/sunblock?

    I have combination normal/oily facial skin and need to purchase a quality sunblock for my next trip to Brazil. It will be very hot, sunny and humid there in late December, early January. I need a sunscreen lotion that will not make my skin break out. Any suggestions?

    In my experience, all of the common drugstore sunscreens with SPF > 30 work very well. The key is to apply often, not even a SPF 90 of the most expensive brand will protect you well after three hours, and less if you sweat a lot.

    If you have specific needs, I found this video quite informative:

    No Ad...great stuff and very cheap since they don't advertise (hence the name).

    I use this on my face every day with no problems: Eucerin Daily Protextion Moisturizing Face Lotion, SPF 30 (this is unscented and has never done a single bad thing to my face.)

    For the rest of my body, Hawaiian Tropic all the way. Smells decent, not greasy and doesn't make me break out.
