I have previously declared my love for Anthelios SX sunscreen on this site. However, since it’s expensive and not something I can just pick up at the store* I tried something that both Ugly Green Chair and Mighty Goods recommended, Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-touch Sunblock, SPF 55.
I tried some dry-touch sunblock when Neutrogena started coming out with them, years ago I think. At that time they were scented with orange oil and the sunblock burned on my skin and turned my face a nasty beet red, so I hope it’s understandable that I was hesitant to try it again. Happily, the scent has changed and it doesn’t irritate my skin.
The sunblock does feel sheer on my skin, it isn’t greasy and seems to keep a matte finish. And, thankfully, it does not make me break out. I’m very pleased. It doesn’t hurt that I see it popping up on all sorts of recommendation lists, including InStyle and Real Simple.
* Anthelios SX is only available at CVS drug stores, and we don’t have any in Washington state. I realize that I could, of course, buy Anthelios online but I’ll be honest and say I know I’m too lazy to keep up with it.
