    Default Any sort of consensus on best facial sunscreen?

    I tend to breakout somewhat easily (at 37, wtf!) anyone with similar issues have great luck with any sort of daily, facial sunscreen? Thanks!

    I don't break out easily, but I have used stuff from some French pharmacy brands that feel quite light and not greasy. In general, French pharmacy brands like La Roche Posay and Avene are more expensive, but target their products to different types of skin. For instance, this one is advertised for acne prone skin:
    https://www.laroche-posay.us/sunscre...F+Acne&start=1

    I use an Avene light hydrating sunscreen (Avene, not Aveeno), but I buy it in Europe, so don't know how US versions compare (Europe allows more sunscreen molecules than the US).

    OP, I'd say try Japanese products. They should have the best sunscreens due to their obsession with white skin

    Generally the ones coupled with retinol are lightweight and non-comedogenic.

    If you are using sunscreen to protect against aging, La Roche Posay’s European market offerings offer the highest UVA protection. I can’t speak for the linked website, but I love this product:

    But if you break out easily (I.e. acne), it isn’t best for daily wear. I get closed comodones from it, so I only use it for days I’m outside quite a bit (beach, etc.).

    Japanese products are excellent for daily wear.

    If you don’t need it to be water resistant, try one of these:

    Do you know what the SPF molecules in this one are?
    Curious to know if they are FDA approved, or if they are the more efficient non-FDA approved ones.

    Here are the ingredients for this year’s version of Biore Perfect Face Milk:

    http://www.cosdna.com/eng/cosmetic_3d57413605.html

    Note that this one is a combination of physical blockers (zinc and titanium dioxide) plus chemical absorbers (Octinoxate and Tinosorb). Tinosorb is the only non-FDA-approved one there. However it is considered more safe than most of the FDA-approved ones.
